Decadence!

{vegan} fried green tomato BLT

Ohmygosh. Have you ever had a fried green tomato BLT? I had one a few years ago (before going vegan) and I was craving one like crazy a couple weeks ago. I couldn’t stop thinking about it! I had just made a batch of my VEGAN SEITAN BACON and, as fate would have it, I…

best vegan bagel & lox

I had a craving. Bagels with cream cheese and lox with a cup of French press coffee. One of my absolute favorite things to eat. Since I don’t eat fish anymore, what in the heck was I supposed to do? I looked up vegan lox online and found a bunch of recipes for carrot lox.…

zhoug

Being an adorer of Italian pesto for most of my life, I’ve recently been playing with new recipes for similar condiments. Mind you, they all taste vastly different. The process is much the same though. Throw some fresh herbs, some sort of nuts or seeds, extra virgin olive oil, something citrusy and/or acidic, and a…

vegan seitan bacon

I made vegan bacon. That happened. Fun fact: Did you know that pork bacon (and other processed meats like hot dogs, sausage, ham, corned beef, beef jerky, canned meats, and many others) have been classified as class one carcinogens? Other carcinogens in this category are tobacco, pesticides, and arsenic. Yum, yum. Eating just two slices…

vanilla pudding pumpkin pie cups

Craving pumpkin pie but also in a hurry and don’t have time to make one? Have no fear. This little dessert will save the day. Just make these in the morning and let them chill while you’re at work. Top with vegan whipped cream (Reddi Wip makes an almond whipped cream and a coconut one!…

sexy sun-dried tomato cranberry pesto

It’s not that I don’t ADORE classic basil pesto, because I do… but sometimes it’s nice to try a different condiment. I’ve literally made four batches of pesto this summer. Pretty big batches too, and none, I repeat, none, of the jars were frozen. To be fair, I did give some away to friends and…

best vegan pumpkin bread

It’s that time of year again! The time of year when everything is pumpkin spice and everything nice. I love it when we turn the calendar to September and the kids are back in school. My kids are done with school now, at least for the time being, and it’s a bit strange, but I…

best vegan fried rice

I had a craving for fried rice like the kind you get at the Chinese buffet so I made some for breakfast today. I can’t believe I hadn’t made it before this. It was SO easy and delicious! Tofu really is a magic ingredient. It’s better than eggs, because no weird, sulfury, eggy flavor, no…

vegan crunchwrap supreme

This is my version of the Taco Bell classic. It’s much healthier and tastier than the original, if I do say so myself. What you need to know about crunchwraps before making your own is that they’re versatile, and they’re comprised of a melty, cheesy, protein layer, a crunchy layer, and finally a fresh layer.…

garlic scape basil pesto

It’s definitely pesto season! This will be the third giant batch I’ve made this summer. My first batch was the traditional basil with garlic and pine nuts, my second was a delicious batch with the addition of fresh garden chives (from our lovely friends Josh and Doro,) and the third was this amazing concoction. I…
