Tempeh Beet Burgers

For the "...but protein" prompt today, I made some burgers.  There's nothing quite as anti-vegan as ground up meat so I've made my beloved tempeh burger with some beet in it to make it look a little more "convincing" to someone who might be skeptical of vegan burgers.  I've had the pleasure of trying the… Continue reading Tempeh Beet Burgers

Buckwheat Banana Bread

  This is my response to the "unconventional grains" prompt!  I love to bake with different grain flours often since most of my baking is gluten-free.  I've experimented with all types of grain flours and some grain-free as well.  I find that there is no "one" magical flour that can be substituted for wheat flour… Continue reading Buckwheat Banana Bread

Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Vegan MoFo: Sprouted Spiced Black Bean Nachos

     I know, I know...today is supposed to be "junk food forever" themed.  Nachos are a classic party food that can be as junky as you want.  Having nachos drowned in dairy cheese, sour cream and other fattening ingredients is junk, for sure.  I decided to take today's prompt and "de-junk" nachos so that… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Sprouted Spiced Black Bean Nachos

Vegan MoFo Day 1: Herbed Mushroom & Tempeh Veggie Burger

Happy Vegan MoFo, everyone!  I'm proud to say that I'm participating again this year.  I hope to contribute some solid recipes while following the prompts (somewhat, due to scheduling and general interest).  I couldn't, however, ignore the first day!  I love this idea: re-inventing a standard vegetarian option.  All too often, as many vegans know,… Continue reading Vegan MoFo Day 1: Herbed Mushroom & Tempeh Veggie Burger

     Quite simply, I thought this meal would look fabulous in black and white, as well as in color.  These ingredients jumped to my mind when I saw this prompt so I ran with it. This is a quick blog post, as it's mainly about the picture! The recipe follows if you'd like to… Continue reading MoFo 7: Forbidden Ramen and Black Bean Croquettes
