Easy Peasy Lemony Tahini Dressing

This Lemony Tahini Dressing is my go-to condiment. I pour it over salads, spread it on sandwiches, and I’ve even been known drizzle in on pizza. There’s really nothing that won’t taste a little better with a bit of tahini dressing. I always have jars of tahini

Tempeh Fajita Salad

Fajitas have always been a favorite of mine. This dish has everything I like about them, in the form of a salad, making it a great meal for hot summer evenings.   Several years ago, I had just started a new job as an art director for

Spicy Asian Chickpea Salad

Like last week’s Asparagus and Chickpea Salad with Vegan Buttermilk Dressing, this Asian Chickpea Salad recipe was inspired by a dish I saw in a recent issue of Food Network Magazine. I’ve veganized their recipe, and changed a few ingredients. I’ve been eating lots of salads lately,

Asparagus and Chickpea Salad with Vegan Buttermilk Dressing

I don’t turn the oven on very much in the summer months. Instead I make meals out of giant salads, or Dennis and I grill veggies outside. I don’t want to eat the same things over and over again, so I’m always on the hunt for new

Leek and Wild Mushroom-Stuffed Potato Skins from Peace & Parsnips by Lee Watson

I’m a little bit of a cookbook junkie, so I have a difficult time saying no when I’m asked to review a new book. This year I’m trying not to take on too many reviews, so that I can do my own thing. So when I was

The Vegan Metro Pizza

Years ago I used to frequent a restaurant call Café Metro at lunchtime. It was near the company I worked for at the time, and they had vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore dishes, so there was something for everyone. Dennis and I had our second date there, and

Vegan Portobello Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Cheesesteaks have been on my mind a lot lately. With friends in Philly joining in the recent Best Vegan Cheesesteak contest, and then reading about all of the cheesesteaks Jasmin Singer ate before going vegan in her book Always Too Much and Never Enough, I’ve found myself

Lemony Chickpea and Escarole Salad

I often find inspiration for new recipes in omnivore recipes that I find online, which is exactly how this dish came about. I saw a recipe for a salmon dish on Epicurious, and the flavors really spoke to me. With the mixture of lemon juice, asparagus and

Summertime Avocado-Chickpea Salad

I’m sure all of us have those recipes that we make often but never write down. You know the ones – that you just throw together, and it may taste a little different each time you make it. For me, that recipe is this avocado-chickpea salad. The

Vegan Quiche Lorraine from Baconish by Leinana Two Moons

I remember when I decided to go vegetarian in the early 90s. My friend Irina was in disbelief. “You’re giving up bacon? How could you do that?” I wish someone had told me back then that Irina’s comment was actually the first in a long line of
