Vegan Doggie Birthday Cake

Today's post is for our four-legged friends. We have 2 dogs named Jolene and Townes, and both of them are Vegans.  Jolene is almost 5 years old and Townes is celebrating his 1st birthday this week.  Jolene has been Vegan for about 3 years and Townes has been since he was 3 months old.  They are very healthy and happy and full of energy. In honor of Townes's birthday I decided to bake a Vegan Doggie Cake.  They absolutely loved it!! In fact, Townes keeps going over to the counter where...

Bare Cabinets Soup

After William left for the day with no lunch in hand and I was starving come my own lunchtime I decided something had to be done.  I searched the cabinets and could not really come up with anything substantial.  I decided it was time to compile what produce we had on hand as well as dry goods.  What came out of this was a delicious new soup for my collection. (Don't worry, I took some to him at work so he would not go hungry either.) Bare Cabinets...

Split Pea Soup and Beer Bread

  Another soup for you.  I have been really enjoying doing these soups.  I make a big pot and it lasts us both for lunch the whole week.  This one is really hearty and filling and would be really delicious on a cold day (if we could ever get one here in LA).  The beer bread is a delicious accompaniment for the soup.  I got the recipe for the bread from my favorite vegan food site happyherbivore.com.

Veggie Soup with Seitan

As I had warned, here come the soups.  This one was super delicious.  I kind of made up the recipe to go along with the veggies I had on hand so you could easily substitute if you have something else in your pantry.  This recipe does require you to make or purchase seitan.  I recommend making it.  I have eaten the pre-made kind and I don't think it is anywhere near as tasty as when you make it yourself. All you need is wheat gluten flour, some water,...

Curried Carrot Soup

Since cold weather is slowly creeping up on us it is time to start thinking soups.  I love soup.  I have only made a few different ones in the past and am excited about this year.  I started it off witha curried carrot soup.  As I am typing this I have a Veggie and Seitan soup bubbling on the stove.  That recipe will follow shortly along with William's Bean Chili recipe and my Jalapeno cornbread.  Oh the good eats we will have this Winter.

Tofu Fish Sticks and Willie’s Coleslaw

This is one of my favorite things to make.  I have done it several times and changed the recipe until I have achieved perfection.  Bread crumbs can be used instead of cracker crumbs.  I just have a hard time finding any that are Vegan.  William made his famous coleslaw to go with it, served up with some vegetarian baked beans.  This dinner was amazing! Vegan Tofu "Fish" Sticks 1 (12 oz) package Extra Firm Tofu 1 Cup Crushed Cracker Crumbs or Breadcrumbs 2 tsp Kelp Powder 1/2 tsp...
