Roasted Poblano Torta

The roasted Poblano torta is composed of a layer of seasoned pinto beans mashed with lime, roasted Poblano pepper, shredded lettuce, sprouts, a touch of vegan mayonnaise, and fresh guacamole on a pressed bun.

The Best Kimchi

A few years back a good friend of mine, Eric, introduced me to a popular Korean side dish known as kimchi. We were tasting every different type we could find locally, identifying what we liked best about each one. Since I was new to this dish I started off with a ridiculous amount of research [...]

Thanksgiving 2012

Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving! Clockwise from the top: caramelized onion butternut roast with chestnuts (from Veganomicon), mashed potatoes (Idaho potatoes, Earth Balance, sea salt, vegan cream cheese), homestyle gravy (from American Vegan Kitchen), 21 grain stuffing (recipe in progress), simple cranberry sauce (fresh cranberries, sugar, water), and a wheat roll. So good!

Delicatessen Vegan Corned Beef on Rye

If you’ve got a craving for a serious deli sandwich, this recipe will make your day. Shaved delicatessen vegan corned beef topped with sauerkraut and deli mustard hits the spot any day of the week. The aroma from brown sugar, cloves, cinnamon, and allspice will take over your kitchen while the loaf bakes. After baking [...]

Bok Choy with Five-Spice Cashews

We got a giant bok choy in our Bountiful Basket Asian pack this week, so instead of the standard “steam and drizzle with lemon juice and salt,” I hauled out “The 30 Minute Vegan’s Taste of the East.”

Pan Fried Shiitake Mushroom Bacon

There was a lot of interest in my previous post about Crispy Shiitake Mushroom Bacon, so I thought I’d follow up with a much quicker way to prepare this savory treat. The recipe is nearly identical, but instead of roasting in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour, you cook on a non-stick skillet for 15-20 minutes.

Weeknight Chickpea Burritos

Nearly every chickpea taco or burrito recipe I’ve ever seen involves either roasting or mashing chickpeas. Those are fine options, but I was more interested in an easy-to-make chickpea filling with both evenly spiced flavor and great texture. Not only is the seasoned filling easy to make, but it’s great in burritos and highly versatile to use in similar recipes as well.

Crispy Shiitake Mushroom Bacon

Loaded with savory flavor and umami taste, you’ll want to add these crispy shiitake mushrooms to all sorts of recipes. Based on a “Shitake ‘Bacon’” by Chef Elliot Prag of the Natural Gourmet Institute, this recipe is a real culinary treat.

Black Eyed Peas, Mushrooms, and Brussels Sprouts Chiffonade with Chopped Blackberries and Mint Gremolata

A vegan Chopped Challenge was presented by the Post Punk Kitchen. This post is my recap of accepting this challenge from start to finish. Generally, my posts start with some sort of photo, but you’ll have to read through (or cheat and scroll down) to see the resulting meal. I have a love/hate relationship with [...]
