Tray of Oven Dried Tomatoes

End of Season Vegan Sun Dried Tomato Pesto

Looked at several videos regarding Vegan Sun Dried Tomato Pesto. This was the easiest and least complicated. I have never thought to use nutritional yeast in my sundried tomato pesto, however, it is a great idea and I’ll do it the next time I make it and see how that tastes. A couple of notes: […]

Cherie Soria, owner and director of the Living Light Culinary Institute in Fort Bragg, California, shows how to make delicious, raw, vegan pesto.  She uses nutritional yeast, garlic, miso, oil, nuts, salt, and of course, basil.  The best part about this recipe is that it can be frozen and pulled out later.

Vegan Lasagna

Whole Foods Vegan Lasagna

I thought I’d try the Whole Foods vegan lasagna (365 house brand). While I give Whole Foods credit for coming up for some cheaper alternatives to the regular prepared vegan foods, this vegan lasagna was terrible. Nothing about it was good – not the sauce, not the noodles, not the fake cheese.  It just wasn’t good. […]

My Vegan Costco Haul

Hadn’t been to Costco for a long time (primarily because I didn’t have a membership card – a pesky detail).  That said, I finally got a card.  Originally I went in to get some gift cards for Amy’s Drive Thru which were 20% off at Costco.  For those who are not lucky enough to live […]

Vegan Superbowl Chili

I love chili. And this recipe looks great. I like to make vegan cornbread with my chili – I have used Betty Crocker’s Fluffy Cornbread recipe very successfully, substituting Ener-G Egg Replacer for the eggs, non dairy milk for the cow’s milk, and Earth Balance margarine for the butter.  I like salsa on my chili, or […]

Franks and Lentils on a Saturday Night

It had been a long, but successful day. I am big on bartering and the share economy. This had been a particularly fruitful 24 hours. By trading, I turned some lemons, an old glass jar, and a box of garbage bags into this haul: Most of the bartering drop offs and pickups had been done […]

Roasted potatoes

Roasted Potatoes

  My favorite go-to vegan dish for eating at home or bringing to a potluck are roasted potatoes.  In this particular picture, I had a small bag of tri-colored potatoes (white, yellow, and purple) and one sweet potato.  I cut them up into bite size pieces and tossed with some olive oil, salt, and rosemary. Oven […]
