Vegan Polenta Lasagna

Way back when, Dennis and I had our third date at a restaurant called Park and Orchard in Rutherford, NJ. I had eaten there several times before, but it was new to him. They had several vegan options on the menu, my favorite being a dairy-free, gluten-free

Aquafaba Vegan Meringue Cookies

I doubt that anyone outside the plant-based world has heard of aquafaba until recently, but the vegan blogosphere was completely abuzz when Goose Wholt discovered that the water that’s leftover from a can of beans can be used as an egg replacement a year or so ago. It can’t

Garlicky Roasted Chickpeas

I’ve had a love affair with roasted chickpeas for many years. I’m not really sure how I discovered them or why I started making them, but they’ve been a mainstay in my diet for quite a while. I was kind of surprised to hear non-vegan coworkers talking

Smashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic Cream

Swamp Monster Slow Cooker Jackfruit Gumbo from The Ghoulish Gourmet

Years ago, Dennis and I discovered a hole-in-the wall restaurant that served Middle-Eastern food. They served falafels, and they had several vegan items on the menu, so we found ourselves eating there often. One of our favorite dishes was the Fattoush Salad, which was loaded with fresh

Vegan Teriyaki Black Bean Burgers with Grilled Pineapple

Teriyaki has always had a special place in my heart. When I was little, we ate out at fast food places often, but we only went to real restaurants when my Poppop visited. We would almost always go to a place called Charley’s Other Brother, and I

Nut Butter Blast: Peanutty Pad Thai Zoodles

Last year, Angela from Canned Time asked me to participate in her Veganized Family Favorites Desserts series. I created a Chocolate Cream Pie, and strangely, I won favorite dessert out of the 12 recipes that were in the series! When Angela asked if I wanted to participate

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
