Tahini Noodles

Some years ago I had come across a recipe for tahini noodles, and I made them several times. They were quite tasty, but somehow they fell out of our meal rotation. It’s been so long now, that I can’t remember where I found the recipe, and for some

Autumn Produce to Try Right Now!

Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the cool, crisp air, the multi-colored leaves the trees, wearing boots and tights, and baking pumpkin pies. According to the calendar, autumn is the exact same length of time as the other seasons, but it always seems like

Hajiki Tofu Burgers with Ginger Miso Dressing

These Hajiki Tofu Burgers with Ginger Miso Dressing take me make to Greenwich Village in the 1990s! I went vegetarian while attending Parsons School of Design in the early 90s. I worked my way through school as a shift supervisor at my local CVS, and I commuted

16 Vegan Sandwich Recipes

During the hot summer months, I rarely make elaborate meals for dinner. Instead, I opt for large salads and light sandwiches.  Sandwiches are the ultimate meal, as they can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and there’s really nothing that doesn’t taste great between two slices of
