Vegan Recipes

Here you will find Vegan recipes of all kinds.

Most of these are my own creations, or sometimes, adaptations of others creations.  I hope you enjoy them!!

A Vegan Thanksgiving

So this year due to finances, school, work, and other random reasons we were unable to travel to be with either of our families for Thanksgiving.  So instead we decided to do our own Thanksgiving here in Lake Charles with our MFA family (Master of Fine Arts). We are the only Vegans in the bunch, though there are a few Vegetarians.  We wanted to share with everyone that you can create a delicious holiday meal with compassion.  In the middle of our table we placed the adoption certificate for our sponsored Turkey, Velma and surrounded her with delicious Vegan foods....

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.

Have Asthma? Try Eating Soybeans.

My good friend Erica found this article and sent it to me.  Vegan and vegetarian diets have already shown that they are beneficial for helping ease allergies and various other illnesses.  Now they are testing to see if soy can be helpful in treating and relieving asthma.  They pay for participants and the article includes a phone number if anyone suffers from asthma and wants to participate. Check out the article here. Have asthma? Try eating...

Apple Crisp – Happy Veterans Day

  To celebrate Veterans day and to break up the soup monotony I made a special dessert for my Veteran husband.  For those of you not aware William served in the Air Force from 1997-2001.  I have never made one of these before and was pleasantly surprised by the results.  The most time consuming part is peeling all of the apples, so I recommend enlisting some help. :)  I used Fuji apples, but you can use whatever kind you prefer.

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 Scramble, Hash Browns, and Cinnamon Raisin Bread

  Yesterday we slept in late and I decided when we woke up that I wanted a super yummy breakfast.  It is rare that we sleep in and ever rarer that I can get William to eat breakfast with me.  So I went all out for this one.  We had (all homemade) cinnamon raisin toast, tofu scramble, and hashbrowns.  We also had fruit, coffee, and orange juice.  It was glorious.  I had some leftovers of it for breakfast today as well and it was still...

William’s Mexican Pizza

This came from one night my darling husband wanted to cook for me.  I made a pizza crust earlier in the day for him to use, but you can just as easily get a store bought one if you can find one that is Vegan.  We do have a bread machine, which makes it a little easier to make breads and doughs when we want them, but you can make them at home by hand pretty easily too, it just takes a little more time.  I put the recipe at...

Tofu Bacon

This is a really tasty recipe for Tofu Bacon.  William loves it when we get to make BLTs so I tried this new recipe for him.  I have done Tempeh bacon before which is delicious, but I think I like this one better... Vegan Tofu Bacon Ingredients: 1 package Extra Firm Tofu 1/2 Cup Water 1/2 Cup Tamari or Soy Sauce 2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
