Food Storage Friday: Goddess Noodles

by heather
Once upon a time, back when I wasn't a full-time college student and took time to coupon, I got 20 boxes of spaghetti noodles for free. Recently, I have been trying to use up my pasta before we move and this recipe puts everyday spaghetti to shame. It's another winner from Isa Does It: Amazingly Easy, Wildly Delicious Vegan Recipes for Every Day of the Week, with a few minor changes. Goddess Noodles Food Storage Ingredients: 12 oz whole wheat spaghetti noodles 1/2 cup tahini 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Lentil-A-Roni

by heather
I've had a request for more lentil recipes and this one is a winner. This recipe comes from Isa Does It: Amazingly Easy, Wildly Delicious Vegan Recipes for Every Day of the Week. (Which btw is I think my favorite cookbook ever.) This recipe is easy, but it is a little time consuming and requires you to plan ahead a few hours. The result is a cheap, delicious and satisfying meal approved by husbands and munchkins alike. Isa patterned it after a childhood favorite from a can, but I promise it is much Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Cauliflower Pasta and Cheese

by heather
This week while I trying to find one my recipes I discovered that some of the stuff from my old blog never transferred over. Just as well, originally when I posted it in 2009, I neglected to take a picture, and the recipe has evolved over time. So, from my archives: My husband is allergic to almost all raw vegetables and many cooked veggies too. My kids just generally won't eat them. This makes getting my family to eat well-balanced meals a challenge, too say the least. I thought Deceptively Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Creamy Vegan Tomato Sauce

by heather
Ok, hear me out. I did just use creamy and vegan together and there is no tofu involved. This sauce is amazing. Basically we made our awesome tomato sauce from before and added pureed cashews. The cashews took an awesome recipe and made it even better. And it gives a little more variety to pasta. :) We tried twice, once with the roasted red peppers and once without, and honestly it tastes pretty much the same. Take home message- cashews are amazing. Creamy Vegan Tomato Sauce Food Storage Ingredients: 8 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Garlic Lentil Noodle Soup

by heather
I was always raised to believe in the healing power of chicken soup. I even read a study once, that if people with colds drank chicken broth it was more effective in relieving symptoms than hot water or a placebo. That's great and all, but I've given up chicken. So what do you do when you're a vegetarian and half of your family is sick? You make this soup! I originally found the recipe at Roxanne's Natural Kitchen, but made a few changes. It went over very well. My husband agreed that the broth makes Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Roasted Vegetables and Pasta

by heather
 This is one of those things that I came up with trying to use what I had in my fridge. I had peppers, mushrooms, half an onion and feta cheese, plus all the food storage staples in my pantry. The recipe I found online and a slightly different vegetable combo and called for grilling the veggies instead of roasting. Roasting just sounded better and easier. (Roasting vegetables is my favorite way to cook them. It's worth the effort.) This recipe requires very little effort, but you do have plan Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Best Vegan Pasta Sauce Ever!

by heather
I often find that when someone raves about how good a recipe is, it is usually an exaggeration and I'm left totally disappointed. Even if the recipe was ok, I usually won't make it again because I don't want to be reminded of how fantastic it wasn't. Perhaps I'm becoming a bit of a food snob, but if it doesn't taste that great I don't think it's worth the time, money, effort and calories when there are so many other foods out there that do taste great. So when I say that I have found a recipe that Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Raspberry and Spinach Pasta Salad

by heather
I created this recipe with my extremely limiting dietary restrictions in mind using things I happened to have in my fridge and pantry. So if you aren't married to a vegetarian and you aren't breast-feeding an infant with  severe reflux, feel free to add some grilled chicken strips, mandarin oranges, feta cheese and/or chopped kiwi fruits. I actually can have kiwi, I'm just out.  You can serve it as a side (I had mine with grilled fish) or eat it as a light meal. Whatever floats your boat. Raspberry Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday and Vegetarian Link-Up

by heather
 My husband has recently decided to be a vegetarian. And I sort of follow suit because I don't want to bother making two or three meals every night. Right now I find that if I go two or three days without eating meat I start feeling weak and nauseated (more so than usual). I also found that when I don't eat meat I don't gain weight, which I need to be doing right now. I don't need a lot of meat to fix the problem, a turkey sandwich will usually do the trick, but I have to have meat. Perhaps Read more [...]
