Dark Wholemeal Bread with Flax Seeds

October, where have you gone?! My goodness, it’s been a crazy-awesome month MoFoing with you all. I wish I could have kept up the pace a bit better, but the conference in Houston, Alternative Thanksgiving, and school kept getting in the way. You all were so inspiring and now I’ve got a long list of […]

Curried Winter Squash Soup

This week has been a little bit insane, and it’s aiming to be only more so until November hits on Sunday, so bear with me these last few days of Vegan MoFo 2009. I tried…but, well, last year was a bit more successful on the daily posting side of things. Lately I’ve been making a […]

Apple Butter

First of all, I swam a mile today!!!! Wooohooo! It’s not my first, but it’s been awhile since I’ve dedicated enough time and energy to attempt one, and I feel like I might be getting back on track exercise wise. Last week I started swimming with my friend A. here and it’s made all the […]

Tempeh Tube Sausage

Saturday–thank goodness. This week seems like it’s dragged on and on. Most of this might be due to the 3:45 am wake up time I had on Tuesday for filming the morning show segments. Most of this might be related to the fact that I gave up coffee this week (seriously not the best week […]

Pan Roasted Hen of the Woods Mushrooms with Maple Pumpkin Polenta and Tatsoi “Spoon” Mustard Greens

While I owe you guys a recap of my Alternative Thanksgiving talk and demo this past Tuesday night, I just must share this amazing, oh-my-goodness-this-is-the-perfect-autumn-easy-but-fancy-pants dinner. Last week Barbara of Dish ‘n’ That shared the most amazing looking polenta recipe from Cuisine magazine: Maple Pumpkin Polenta. As soon as she posted it, I knew I […]

Alternative Thanksgiving Tonight!

If you’re interested in seeing step-by-step instructions for how to construct the Gluten-Free, Vegan Stuffed Acorn Squash I demonstrated on today’s show, click here. Other Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten-Free Thanksgiving recipes can […]

Southwestern Cabbage Soup

I’m starting to get a little burned out on cooking right now, just a little. If you head over to the Thanksgiving Tutorials section you’ll find lots of new goodies: gluten-free cornbread, stuffed acorn squash, cranberry orange relish (among others). By this time next week I’ll be in Thanksgiving overload–and it’s only October! It is […]

Turkey Stuffing, Turkey-Free

My mom is famous for her stuffing–every year she’s asked to make the pies (she was a caterer for 20 years who specialized in dessert so pies are her forte) and the stuffing, if nothing else. When I called her and asked for the recipe she paused and said, “well…now I’ve actually got to think […]

Stuffed Acorn Squash

As with all the dishes listed in the main course section, this Stuffed Acorn Squash is super simple and won’t take up any extra time while you’re cooking the rest of your thanksgiving feast. The oven does almost 100% of the work for you and if you’re already making up a vegan or gluten-free stuffing, […]

Maple Mustard Glazed Butternut Squash

This dish is hands down one of the easiest main courses you can make for your vegan and gluten-free friends or family members. All it requires is some slicing, some roasting, and some mixing of a glaze, but really, the oven does all the work for you. The maple syrup in the glaze adds a […]
