Jackfruit: Meet the Funky Fruit that’s Cropping up Everywhere (including in your tacos)

, , ,

Among the excellent abundance of meat alternatives available to us these days, there is… JACKFRUIT! Granted, unlike tofu and other soy derivatives often used to replace meat, jackfruit doesn’t provide much protein, however that’s made up for by way of its significant amounts of potassium and vitamin B as well as some E, magnesium, iron, […]

Greens & Beans, Made with Love and Perfect Vision

, ,

Hi all! After a little summer hiatus, I’m happy to be back to blogging! Really, I was planning to start writing again last week, but unfortunately I had a bit of a run-in with a bush. Yup, in an effort to tidy things up around the yard and do some trimming back of dead branches, […]

(Maybe not the Best, but Quite Possibly the Best) Vegan Lentil Burgers

, , ,

I can’t tell you how many veggie burgers and veggie burger recipes I come across as a vegan blogger. Ingredient combinations are practically endless, so there are a lot of choices out there, and, of course, everyone likes to claim theirs is “The Best.” For fear of making the other burgers in my life feel bad […]

French Onion Soup A La My Dutch-German Dave

, , ,

Soooo… It’s been yet another pitifully gray and rainy week for us. It’s typical during this time of year in Maine, and for some things (like for the grass and forsythia and pretty spring daffodils) it’s good, but for other things (like walking outside without getting wet) it’s bad. Man, I’m jonesin’ to see the sun for at least a few […]

Tempeh Curry with Broccoli and Mushrooms

, ,

I really enjoy making curry dishes for my family, because – to me – they’re one of the easiest yet most flavorful and complete meals to whip up. The whole thing takes less than 30 minutes to prepare (although, if time permits, I recommend letting your curry simmer for a bit to allow the spices to deepen and get even tastier!) This combination […]

Macaroni & Milk (It's just like mac-n-cheese... without the cheese)

, , ,

OK, so today I give you… dun da da… MACARONI & MILK! Yup, this is actually a thing at my house. We cook elbow macaroni, put it in a cereal-type bowl, add unsweetened almond milk on top, stir in vegan butter, salt it, then pop it in the microwave until it’s hot (or, you can do this […]

Creamy, Curry Black Bean Soup's ON!

, , ,

It’s been another cold and snowy week here in Maine, so it seemed right to make some of my world-famous black bean soup. Ok, so it’s not world-famous. But I kinda feel like maybe it should be! Try it, and let me know what you think: CURRY BLACK BEAN SOUP Ingredients: 1  15.5 oz. can […]
