Serves 4 People

Here’s a hellova twist on an old classic.  I made this recently and loved it.  Its an English way of making lasagna, but I think you’ll find that its really delicious!  It might be a bit of a challenge finding vegan lasagna pasta, but its not impossible, just read the back of the box for NO EGGS.  We don’t like those eggs.

Grilled Veggies with Vegan Polenta

Polenta is another one of those tricky things that vegans commonly think they can’t have because its always made with dairy.  But, hey man, you can have it, too!  All we need to fix this problem is some soy cream/milk, vegan butter, and a little vegan parmesean!  This recipe is great for a summer appetizer to an Italian feast, but it can also be a main course if you like!  Check it out:

Vegan Stroganoff

Ok, I’m gonna be the first to admit, I always thought stroganoff was a German recipe.  I almost classified this under German, but then something inside told me to check first, and I’m glad I did, because that made this recipe the first (hopefully of many) Russian recipe in the database!  Turns out, stroganoff comes from the Russian word strogats, which means “to shave” – that comes from the shaved meat that is usually found in this dish.  There are also stories linking it to have been named after the Stroganov family, but hey, who knows?  In this case, we’re going to ditch the meat idea and go with seitan and portabella mushrooms.  You might even make your Russian friends proud of you for not bastardizing their heritage dish!

Last night, I had something similar to this recipe at a pub in North Yorkshire.  It inspired me to come up with a recipe that was similar, but BETTER, cuz we all know how I love a good challenge.  So here you have it.  Celebrate your inner-Frenchness and enjoy on a cold, rainy day!

Vegan French Onion Soup

March 1, 2015

Usually, French Onion Soup is made with a load of butter and beef stock, but that doesn’t mean that vegans don’t get to enjoy this timeless classic!  Here’s an easy vegan french onion soup recipe to keep you warm on those rainy days.

French onion soup is one of my favorites by the way, it always warms me up and cheers me up when the grey skies roll in!

 

Note:  I have a great way of making the perfect crouton for this type of soup.  If you take a slice of vegan sandwich bread and cut a big circle out of the center with a ring cutter and bake it until toasty and crouton-like, it will sit perfectly on top of the soup.  You can even top it with some vegan cheese and watch it soak up all the soupy goodness!
