Chickpea Pizza with Asparagus and Pea Shoot Tangle from Chickpea Flour Does It All

I get many requests to review cookbooks, and I usually only say yes to the vegan cookbooks. I like supporting vegan authors, and I don’t want a book full of recipes that I can’t make. (Or have to figure out how to veganize.) For these reasons, I

Vegan Cashew Ricotta Cheese

With my posts for Spinach Pesto and Cashew Cheese Sauce, you may have noticed that my recent recipes have been for basics. I’ve decided to create a series of blog posts with some of my go-to sauces and condiments for two reasons. First, I’ve been hard at

Vegan Spinach Pesto

Pesto is one of my all-time favorite condiments. I use it as a sauce on pizzas and pasta, I spread it on sandwiches, and sometimes I’ll just eat it on bread as a snack. The word “pesto” comes from the Italian word pestâ, which means to pound

Banh Mi Tostadas from 100 Best Vegan Recipes by Robin Robertson

I don’t know how she does it, but Robin Robertson has written yet another cookbook! 100 Best Vegan Recipes is her newest book, and it contains 90 of her favorite recipes from the best selling 1,000 Vegan Recipes along 10 that are brand new.   For those

My Go-To Vegan Cashew Cheese Sauce

Lemon-Dijon Tempeh and Mushrooms

I was flipping through an issue of Shape magazine recently, and I came across a recipe for Tarragon-Lemon Chicken and Mushrooms. I can’t stand tarragon, and while I adore chickens, I would never think of eatting one, but the recipe still piqued my interested. I do love

Vegan Spinach Mushroom Quiche

I’ve never actually had an eggy quiche, but I have had many vegan ones made with tofu, white beans, and even chickpea flour. It’s amazing how creative you can get with ingredients once you remove the animal products! This quiche is tofu based, and it’s a good

Vegan Colcannon

A few years ago I had a green food themed potluck for Saint Patrick’s Day. While I am part Irish, I didn’t grow eating foods that were Irish in nature, and we didn’t eat anything special on Saint Patrick’s Day. I had recently read something about Colcannon

Mushroom and Arugula Filo-Crust Pizza

This recipe might look slightly familiar, and that’s because it uses components from other recipes. While I was working on my What’s for Dinner e-book, I had found that I was left with some filo dough, a little tomato sauce, and half a block of tofu. There
