Chocolate Banana Almond Butter Pie

Bananas, chocolate and almonds make a good combination. This was another one of those raw recipes that I ended up un-rawifying, but it was delicious as I'm sure its raw counterpart is also. I got it from the blog Adventures of Raw Goddess Heathy, which I am a big fan...

Guest Post: DIY Microgreens with Hydroponics

A few months ago, Chris got in touch with me about writing something for the blog about microgreens. As you may have realized by my obsessive tendencies around my balcony garden last year, I love growing things...especially things I can eat. I haven't dappled much in...

Rustic Fresh Tomato Whole Wheat Pasta with Almond Parmesean

The American road trip has begun! For the next three months until October 3rd, I'll be driving across America and back, first through the north and back through the south. Thus, you'll be seeing a lot of my travels and the vegan foods I've found during my trip here....

Vegan Peanut Noodles

[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:43] This vegan peanut noodles recipe is really easy and super delicious. I actually made it for a hungover brunch...for myself. Here's a question...what do you put in your peanut sauce? I find that everyone makes theirs a little...

Vegan Cheesemaking Guide – Vegan MoFo Day 6

So you want to make your own vegan cheese? Today's MoFo prompt is to write about comfort food - and vegan cheesy things are certainly a comfort food for me! I've had this post sitting in my drafts for ages, so I figured it was finally time to finish it up and post it....

Vegan Cappuccino Muffins

Vegan MoFo Day #4! It took two tries to perfect this recipe, but holycrap are they delicious. The first time they came out tasting good, but didn't rise at all, which I attribute to a wet:dry ratio with too much, well...wet. Oops! I didn't account for the fact that...

Vegan Brunch

Vegan MoFo Post #16   Sometimes it's the simple things. Tofu scramble, fried up veggie sausage, sauteed mushrooms with garlic and some fried potato hash with peppers, garlic and onions. Delicious. What's your favorite recipe for tofu scramble? Here is my Famous Tofu...

How to Turn Bread Flour Into Meat: Seitan, the Old-Fashioned Way (A Visual Adventure)

Vegan MoFo Day #12! So these picture may be from back in February, but no matter! My friend Gulliver from Herbivorus Rex visited me awhile back, and he is my kitchen soul-mate and much braver than I, as he managed to turn flour into veggie meat, while I always cheat...

Vegan Jewish Apple Cake

This cake was sexual. Oh my goodness. I went apple-picking with friends and am still trying to use up apples. This cake used 8, which seemed like a solid number to use up. I'm not usually a big cake person, I prefer brownies and all the ooey gooey stuff. But, my...

Mochi Truffles (Riceflour Truffles)

Vegan MoFo Day #15 All credit for this goes to my friend, Gulliver! I believe we are kitchen soulmates as everything he makes in his kitchen wants to be in my belly. Last November, he posted on my Facebook wall asking me to test a recipe for him, which was born during...

Vegan White Chocolate

I've been meaning to make vegan white chocolate ever since I got some food-grade cocoa butter for Christmas. I used a recipe from the Bitter Sweet Blog and went with it. Man, it was a lot easier than I expected to make the ever-elusive vegan white chocolate and so...

Sourdough Bagels

Okay, so this recipe isn't really my own making as I followed this one over at the Fresh Loaf exactly, but as a pretty amateur bread-baker a lot of the stuff on that post is over my head, so I thought I'd summarize it here with my pictures. For more details, you...

Vegan Nom Noms Does America: South Dakota and Wyoming

Vegan MoFo Post #4! This is where the veganism started to get a bit difficult and where I had my least vegan friendly restaurant experience so far, albeit with some very well-meaning staff. Silver lining is that we stumbled upon a random small town called Cody with a...

Vegan Nom Noms Does America: Minneapolis, Minnesota

Vegan MoFo Post #3! Minneapolis was pretty rad and often so overlooked! Maybe I wouldn't survive the winter there, but I really felt like I needed tons more time to explore this city! We managed to pack a lot into our few days. Eating, browsing the co-op, bike-riding,...
