I’m not fond of stealing recipes, but this one really does work the best.  Not to mention, I love reading Jamie Oliver’s cook books (since I’m totally obsessed with him and think he’s pretty much the coolest guy on earth).  So here we have it – Jamie’s awesome focacia recipe that just happens to be vegan!

Here’s a healthy, dairy-free alternative to the usual Naan, which I have to admit, is sooo delicious.  It really bugs me that it tastes so great and isn’t vegan, but now – here we have it!  This recipe is pretty easy, and once you get it down, you can put your own stamp on it to make it really special by adding spices, garlic, or whatever you like!

Hearty Vegan Cabbage and Potato Soup

March 1, 2015

Here’s a little something to warm the mind, body, and soul.  I can remember as a child when my grandparents, who lived in Germany for many years, would make cabbage soup in the winter and it was absolutely delicious.   I’ve been looking for a good vegan recipe for this winter classic, and I think I’ve found one that works wonders.  Top with a little vegan cream and vegan parmesean if you want to add a little extra umph to the recipe.  Deeeeelish!

Vegan Eggplant Timbales with “Cheese”

March 1, 2015

I rarely cook with eggplant.  I’ll admit, I think its pretty bland and I almost never have a use for it, unless I’m making ratatouille.  However, here is a recipe that showcases eggplant, and, the best part is, you can make it ahead of time and all it needs is a little pop in and out of the oven right before it gets served.   So, go buy yourself one of those weird veggies that Mrs. Conehead doesn’t like and prove her WRONG.

For the salad:  I like to serve these timbales over a spinach salad, lightly dressed with a vinaigrette and lightly toasted pine nuts, but you can use your imagination and do what you like!

Vegan Roasted Veggie Casserole

March 1, 2015

I miss the days of casseroles.  In my family, we used to eat them almost every night.  Nowadays it seems I only get to eat casserole if someone dies.  Just kidding – we all know that nobody makes vegan funeral casseroles vegan.

Enough of death talk – here is something delicious to make you feel alive and happy!  Roasted veggie casserole, woohoo!

Chickless Chicken Salad

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.
