Food Storage Friday: Mediterranean Salad

by heather
We eat lots of salads, but most of them don't have a lot of direction. Some greens, some veggies, dressing, nuts, chopped fruit and we're good. A few weeks ago I had a Mediterranean salad at work and felt a need to recreate it. It's a delicious mix of food storage and fresh veggies, not to mention it is super easy to put together. Other than the gorgonzola, all of the ingredients were things that I keep on hand. When I made this salad this week I felt like it was missing something, but I couldn't Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Black Bean Tacos

by heather
This recipe is another delicious accident. Last weekend we went to a party for the 4th of July. Our good friend's partner was thoughtful enough to make bean burger patties for us. They had a little bit of a taco flavor to them, so when I attempted to make patties and they fell apart I stirred them into crumbles, added some more spices and cooked them until they were crisp, and they make an AMAZING taco filling. Black Bean Tacos Food Storage Ingredients: 1 (15 oz) can black beans 1/2 cup whole Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Easy Fluffy Whole Wheat Bread

by heather
I have tried more whole wheat bread recipes than I can count. This one is hands down the best. It uses only whole wheat flour (no refined white), it's faster and easier to make than most wheat bread recipes, and the bread comes out perfect and fluffy. It also slices easily for sandwiches. There are two basics kinds of wheat, red and white. (White is the variety that is generally available at Costco in 45 lb buckets.) Nutritionally there isn't much difference, but grinding white whole wheat produces Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Smokey Beans

by heather
These are my new favorite discovery. They are easy, versatile and full of flavor. Seriously, they taste amazing! I would almost say they are life-changing. You get delicious smokey hickory flavor (almost meaty) without all of the sugar of BBQ sauce and keeping it vegan too. We have been eating them 2-3 times per week for more than a month and we're still not tired of them. I've put them in wraps, on salads and in pitas. I've used this recipe with garbanzo, pinto and white beans. So far they all work, Read more [...]

Book Review: Isa Does It

by heather
This is currently my favorite cookbook. Isa Does It: Amazingly Easy, Wildly Delicious Vegan Recipes for Every Day of the Week makes vegan cooking a tangible reality, not something that only movie stars with personal chefs enjoy. She has many delicious recipes with, tips and tricks to make preparation easy, like how to shop, how to plan and the best way to chop tempeh. This book (and her previous two books) helped make me familiar with previously obscure ingredients such as nutritional yeast and Read more [...]

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: Buffalo Falafel

by heather
I found this recipe at Thug Kitchen. His language would be considered offensive by many, but if the f-word doesn't bother you, go read his commentary because it's funny. I loved this recipe so much that I made it 3 times in the past couple weeks. It is DELICIOUS! And spicy. My very carnivorous brother-in-law even thought it was delicious. I'm not a huge fan of falafel, I feel like generally it is too doughy and greasy, but I like this. I liked it even more when I decided to make the balls 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 [...]

Coconut Orange Pancakes

by heather
By first appearances these pancakes look like any other pancake, but they are significantly more delicious than the average pancake. I experimented these up one morning and they have been a crowd favorite. And no I didn't forget the oil, you can substitute orange juice for oil in pancake recipes. You can serve these with pancake syrup, however Thing 1 prefers them with Nutella and banana slices. Coconut Orange Pancakes 1 egg 1 cup self-rising flour 1 cup coconut milk 2 Tablespoons orange juice 1/4 Read more [...]

Food Storage Friday: Pesto Chickpea Sandwich

by heather
This is a healthier version of this recipe. I love it because it is delicious, it's full of veggies and beans and it can be assembled in less than ten minutes total. Yes! I have tested it at my house and unlike the other version it is a hit with big people and little people. If you are of the vegan persuasion, just make sure that you are using a vegan variety pesto and bread. If you're not picky, whatever. Pesto Chickpea Sandwiches Food Storage Ingredients: 1 (14.5 oz) can of chickpeas, drained Fresh Read more [...]
