Food Storage Friday: Quinoa, Mushroom, & Black Bean Stuffed Peppers

I found this recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance : Over 150 Delicious, Cheap, Animal-Free Recipes That Rock The filling could be used in a wrap also.

Food Storage Friday: Peach Pancakes

by heather
I found this recipe on Thug Kitchen. I love his recipes, his emphasis on healthy clean vegan eating and his stick-it-to-the-man attitude, however I will warn you that his language is somewhat offensive but I can't help but laugh at his posts. I made these pancakes for dinner this past Wednesday, and my entire family loved them. Hooray for breakfast for dinner! I was surprised that they didn't taste as peachy as I was expecting, but they were still delicious. Peach Pancakes Food Storage Ingredients: 2 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Green Curry

by heather
One of the best places to eat in St George is a Thai restaurant run by an adorable older Thai woman named Benja. Last fall for a fun date my husband and I went to one of her cooking classes. I thought 'Ooh I'm going to learn to cook like Benja'. Actually, I learned why I will continue to frequent Benja's because it's worth it to just pay her to make my dinner. The first thing we learned to make were Thai Basil Rolls, which wasn't too complex. The problem is, the best part is the sauce that you dip Read more [...]

Vegan French Dip Sandwiches

by heather
This recipe has been an evolving experiment that started with a funeral or three. My husband's grandmother, affectionately known as 'Super Grandma' passed away, two weeks after 'Super Grandpa' had died. Awhile later my mother-in-law's only brother who had been living there also passed away. After the last funeral we went to the house and began going through their belongings. In a cupboard someone found an ancient bottle of Burgundy. Super Grandma loved to golf and would often win fancy bottles of Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Barley and Swiss Chard Skillet Casserole

by heather
I recently found this recipe in 101 Best Vegan Foods. The first time I made, it was very bland, although unlike some vegan meals it left a satisfying feeling in my tummy. I tried it again, with a few delicious changes. Here are the results. Barley and Swiss Chard Skillet Casserole Food Storage Ingredients: 3/4 cup dry barley, soaked in water overnight and drained 1 can white beans (navy, cannelini, great northern, etc.), rinsed and drained 1 Tablespoon olive oil 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/8 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Wheatberry, Black Bean and Mango Salad

by heather
Awhile ago I blogged about a  Black Bean, Quinoa and Mango Salad, and my hypothesis was that wheatberries would work well in place of the quinoa. This is just an update to verify that they do work well. Although you have double the dressing, because the wheatberries absorb so much of it. But it's still a cheap, easy, healthy and delicious vegan meal. Quinoa runs about $4/lb, whereas hard wheat or at least the last time I bought any is about 25 cents/lb. Quinoa is nice because it's gluten-free and 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: Kale and Potato Enchiladas

by heather
Recently in our Bountiful Basket we got kale. What does one do with this cabbage-like vegetable? If you can get a good deal on mangos, I recommend this salad. (But I generally try to cook with what I have in my pantry and what I get from the produce co-op.) So we referred to the Veganomicon, it has yet to sir us wrong. In their recipe, it gives instructions on how to make your own enchilada sauce, which I'm sure would taste fantastic, but I used a can of Las Palmas chile verde sauce, because it is Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Pumpkin Coconut Curry

by heather
When I tell my friends that I spend about $250 each month on groceries for our family of five I get various skeptical responses. People assume that we live off of Top Ramen and potatoes, or that I spend all of my time gardening and baking. (My kids would actually eat Ramen noodles every day if I let them, but I generally trying to push things like sandwiches and produce. Also, our gardening attempts have all been epic failures and I only bake a few times each month.) We actually eat a variety of Read more [...]
