Vegan Vegetable Fried Rice

When I was in college, I went to one of those restaurants where the chef comes to your table to cook whatever you ordered and to throw sharp knives around. It was very impressive. But the best thing about it for me was that it was such a great cooking demonstration. The fried rice was […]

Stuffed Shells

When I was in college, I had a vegetarian boyfriend for a while and he had the original Moosewood Cookbook. He taught me how to make vegetarian lasagna which I loved!

Vegan Crepes

I used to love crepes. I made them with sweet fillings and savory fillings and I made them for parties, or for a treat, or for brunch, or for whatever occasion I could think of. I used to make them with mostly egg whites, so I justified eating them as not that big of a […]

Seitan Stroganoff

My last post was the recipe for making seitan and today I get to share my very favorite way to use it. This recipe may be one of my favorites because it brings back childhood memories of eating my moms stroganoff, except it was different because it was made with ground beef and what seemed […]
