Thai Green Curry Stir-Fry Noodles

June 10 2021 Vegan Richa 

Thai Green Curry Stir-Fry NoodlesReady in under 30 minutes, these Vegan Thai Green Curry Noodles are the perfect simple weeknight dinner recipe. Theyre naturally vegan, packed with veggies, fragrant with flavor, and pair perfectly with any plant-based protein you want to add.  No need for store-bought curry paste! These Thai Green Curry Noodles with tofu are perfect for when you are craving exciting Thai flavors but also want the comfort of a bowl of noodles. A steaming bowl of Thai rice noodles tossed in a homemade quick coconut milk green curry sauce! What’s not to love!? I love Green curry for its balanced flavors. There’s chili, of course, but also ginger, lime, and garlic, and all those flavors are SO up my alley. I took a shortcut by making a simplified coconut milk-based green curry sauce in the blender. An easy yet flavorful green curry sauce. If you happen to have some lemongrass, feel free to add to the mix. If you’re really pressed for time, a Thai curry paste blended with coconut milk will do the trick. But even if you use store-bought green curry paste I would recommend you to wake it up a bit by adding in fresh garlic, ginger, and cilantro. It will taste so much fresher. Besides the amazing Asian flavors, I really love this easy vegan noodle recipe because of how simple it is to throw together on any given busy weeknight. The whole noodle dish is made completely from scratch in under 30 minutes! Let’s do this!

Tempeh Meatballs & Spaghetti

January 7 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Tempeh Meatballs & Spaghetti Serves 2 to 4 Photo By VK Rees So many of my best memories revolve around a big juicy meatball, and lots of slurpy, garlicky marinara. My grandmas dinner table with a big platter of her meatballs right in the center of it, always featuring a few burnt ones that everyone in the family tried to grab before anyone else could. My best friends mom, a beautiful Italian woman with jet black hair and catlike blue eyes, feeding me almost every night of the week. And later, when I went vegetarian, cooking tofu balls and spaghetti with my mom and sis. Even decades later, when I lived in a loft with no heat, every Sunday night my roommates and I would watch Sopranos and eat spaghetti and meatballs, made from some storebought soy sausage stuff.  Well, this recipe is none of those exactly, but its a mishmash of all those experiences. I love the texture of tempeh in meatballs, its succulent and satisfying. A few condiments and pantry spices give me the childhood flavors that I crave. Definitely double this recipe if you feel like it, and dont forget to burn a few…those are always the best loved.  The method of simmering tempeh here is one that is so useful when you want a more neutral flavor! Learn it, live it. This recipe is from Isa Does It. Ingredients For the meatballs: 16 ounces tempeh 1 cup water 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 3 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon dijon mustard 1/­­2 teaspoon dried oregano 1/­­2 teaspoon dried thyme 1/­­2 teaspoon salt Several dashes fresh black pepper 1/­­2 cup very finely chopped yellow onion 1 cup panko breadcrumbs Olive oil for pan frying For the rest: 8 oz spaghetti 4 cups marinara, storebought or homemade Red pepper flakes Fresh black pepper Directions Boil a pot of salted water for spaghetti.  Meanwhile, crumble tempeh in small pieces into a 2 quart pot. Submerge in a cup of water, a tablespoon soy sauce and one tablespoon olive oil. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat and simmer, with the lid slightly ajar so that steam can escape, for 15 minutes. Most of the water should be absorbed. If there is excess water, drain and place tempeh in a mixing bowl and place in the freezer to cool It should take 10 minutes or so, give it a stir after 5 minutes to make it cool evenly. In the meantime, prepare your onions. Once cool, add garlic, ketchup, mustard, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper then mix well. Mix in the onions. Now add the breadcrumbs and use your hands to mix until it holds together very well. If it seems loose, add extra breadcrumbs by the tablespoon until you can form very tight, compact balls. Scoop up about golfball sized amounts and roll between your hands to form the balls. Your water should be boiling at this point, so cook the spaghetti now. When its ready, drain and toss with marinara in the pot you boiled it in. Keep covered and hot until ready to eat. Preheat a large non-stick pan (preferably cast iron) over medium heat. Coat the pan with a thin layer of olive oil. Add meatballs one by one, rolling them in the pan to coat in oil. If your pan is not big enough to fit all of the balls comfortably, then do them in two batches. Pan fry for about 10 minutes, rolling them frequently, to cook evenly.  Serve spaghetti in big bowls, with three or four meatballs each. Top with extra red pepper flakes or fresh black pepper and slurp it up!

White Chocolate Peppermint Torte

December 7 2020 My New Roots 

White Chocolate Peppermint Torte   Hi friends. It feels good to be back in this blog space. Since the beginning of this year, Ive been focusing my attention on my latest project, My New Roots Grow – an online universe of wellness education – which will launch soon. Grow is the most energy-intensive and large-scale project since my cookbooks, and once again it feels like birthing something major. The blog has been on the back burner giving more space for Grow to, well, grow, but I thought Id pop in with this stellar holiday dessert because tis the season! I actually developed this recipe last winter, but wasnt sure what to do with it. I thought about keeping it exclusively on Grow (since that is where a lot of my recipe content will live from now on!), but because it is so special and delicious, I felt that it should just be out in the world. Inspired by the Spiced Chocolate Torte that I make on the retreats in Mexico (remember places?!), I wanted to make a festive holiday version with white chocolate and peppermint. The crust is dark chocolate and pecan, so rich and delicious with just the right amount of salt. The interior is velvety smooth and beguilingly creamy, made with cashews, coconut oil, and white chocolate. I love the kiss of peppermint in the filling, which is definitely present but not overwhelming. I didnt want anyone to feel like they were eating dessert and brushing your teeth at the same time!   Some notes on the recipe… If youre using peppermint essential oil to flavour the filling, I find it helpful to measure it out on a spoon first, just in case the bottle is in a giving mood – one too many drops of this stuff will ruin a good torte with too much minty-ness! I like to use about 6 or 7 drops total, but if it comes out too fast, I have no way of controlling the amount. If youre using peppermint extract, start at a quarter of a teaspoon and work your way up to the flavour that suits you. If you eat a vegan diet, you can use maple syrup instead of honey in the filling, but the colour is going to be more brown /­­ beige than creamy. Also, make sure to find dairy-free white chocolate, since the vast majority of commercially-made white chocolate contains milk solids. And then, if you do find vegan white chocolate, read the ingredient list to make sure that is doesnt contain any hydrogenated oils or weird emulsifiers (or just pick your battles!).   The torte decorating is entirely up to you, although pomegranate seeds create a striking display of holiday cheer! Other options include fresh mint leaves, cacao nibs, or shaved dark chocolate. You could even include them all, if youre feeling extra festive. Store the torte in the freezer until youre ready to enjoy it, then bring it out about 15-20 minutes before serving so that its not rock hard. Its easier to slice and eat when its warmed up a tad. Use a smooth, very sharp chefs knife, and run it under hot water before cutting into the torte to make it glide. If you’re not in the mood to make a crust, you can turn this dessert into freezer fudge by preparing only the filling. Pour the filling into an 8-inch /­­ 20 cm square pan lined with plastic wrap; top with 1/­­2 cup /­­ 65g toasted pecans, cacao nibs, or chocolate shards, and freeze until solid (about 2 hours). Slice into squares and enjoy straight from the freezer!     Print recipe     White Chocolate Peppermint Torte Serves 10-14 For the crust: 1 cup /­­ 100g pecans 1/­­4 cup /­­ 60ml coconut oil, preferably flavour-neutral 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup 1/­­4 tsp. fine-grain sea salt 1 1/­­2 cups /­­ 150g rolled oats, divided, gluten-free if necessary 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder For the filling: 1 1/­­2 cups /­­ 200g cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours 3/­­4 cup /­­ 175 ml creamed honey (sub with maple syrup, but be warned the colour of the filling will be brown) 1/­­2  cup /­­ 125 ml coconut oil 75g /­­ 2.6 oz. white chocolate, melted (dairy-free /­­ vegan if desired) 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract 1/­­2 tsp. fine-grain sea salt a few drops peppermint essential oil or extract, to taste pomegranate, mint, cacao nibs, shaved dark chocolate, for garnish, optional Directions: 1. Make the Crust: Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease a 9-inch (23 cm) spring form pan or pie dish with coconut oil. 2. In a food processor, blend 1/­­2 cup (50g) of the rolled oats on high until you have a rough flour, place a small bowl and set aside. Without cleaning the machine, process the pecans into a fine crumb with the texture of sand. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, salt, oat flour and cacao powder, and process again until the dough comes together. Finally, add the remaining 1 cup of rolled oats and pulse until the oats are chopped, but still have some texture to them. The dough should stick together slightly when pressed between your fingers. If it doesnt, try adding a bit more maple syrup or processing a bit longer. 3. Crumble roughly half of the dough evenly over the base of the pan. Starting from the middle, press the mixture firmly and evenly into the bottom, moving outward and upward along the side of the pie dish. The harder you press the crumbs into the dish, the better the crust will hold together. Taking a small section at a time, use the remaining crust to go up the sides, all around the form until complete. Poke a few fork holes into the bottom of the crust to let the steam escape. 4. Bake the crust, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes, until fragrant and slightly darker around the edges. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. 5. Make the filling: Drain and rinse the cashews. In a high-speed blender, combine the soaked cashews, honey, oil, melted chocolate, vanilla, salt, and peppermint, then blend on high until the filling is completely smooth. It can take a few minutes of blending to get it smooth, depending on your blender. If the blender needs more liquid to get it going, add a tablespoon (15 mL) of plant-based milk (or a bit more) to help it along. 6. Pour the filling into the prepared crust, smoothing out the top evenly. Place the torte on an even surface in the freezer, uncovered. Freeze for a couple of hours, and then cover the dish with foil and freeze overnight, or for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours, until the torte sets. 7. Remove the torte from the freezer and let it sit on the counter for 10 minutes before slicing. It is meant to be served cold. Garnish with mint leaves, pomegranate seeds, cacao nibs, melted or shaved chocolate, if desired.   I hope that wherever you are and whatever youre celebrating this month, you are safe, healthy, and grateful. This year has thrown us all for the biggest loop of our lives, and finding the small joys and tiny triumphs (like getting out for some fresh air, putting dinner on the table) is enough to make me feel proud, anyway. The holidays will undoubtedly look different this year, but I know that I am just thankful to have a roof over my head and a torte to share with the ones I love. I hope the same for you, dear friend. In light and love, best wishes for the season ahead. Sarah B The post White Chocolate Peppermint Torte appeared first on My New Roots.

Vegan Pumpkin Chipotle Fried Rice (Instant Pot)

November 28 2020 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Pumpkin Chipotle Fried Rice (Instant Pot)Smoky Vegan Pumpkin Chipotle Fried Rice made within minutes using the Instant Pot! A seasonal twist on restaurant-style fried rice your whole family will love! Glutenfree soyfree Nutfree, stove top option in notes Pumpkin Chipotle Fried Rice – a seasonal twist on traditional Chinese Fried Rice Pumpkin Chipotle Fried Rice is definitely not the traditional fried rice. It’s not even fried per se as we prepare it in the Instant Pot but let me tell you, this seasonal twist is amazing. Its what I call, use up the veggies and remaining pumpkin fried rice! Its so finger-licking good, I might have made it several times even when I didnt have any pumpkin to use up! The best thing – it’s all made in the Instant Pot within just 5 minutes of cooking time and 10 minutes of natural steam release. The prep work is minimal – just remember to soak the rice before you add it to the Instant Pot to get the perfect “fluffiness”. The slight heat from the chipotle chili powder goes to well with this dish. I use a chipotle chili blend and also add some cumin and thyme to seal the deal – all spices that pair beautifully with the sweet pumpkin puree, FOR MORE VEGAN RICE DISHES CHECK OUT THESE RECIPES: - Turmeric Lemon Rice - Vegetable Carrot Fried Rice - Instant Pot Black Eyed Peas Rice Pulao - Masala Fried Rice with Turmeric Onion Raita - Peanut Sauce Fried Rice Which rice shall I use for making fried rice?

WORLD 2.0 vegan cookbook on Kickstarter

November 2 2020 The Lotus and the Artichoke 

WORLD 2.0 vegan cookbook on Kickstarter Visit Kickstarter to pre-order: http:/­­/­­kck.st/­­2TE62bO  My first book has been a bestseller for almost eight years, but ever since the sequels came out, I’ve wanted to go back and massively upgrade the visuals on the original book: to re-do the cover artwork and re-shoot most of the food photos. After publishing 5 other books and spending additional years in the kitchens of the world, I knew I could improve the recipes, add outstanding dishes that didn’t make it into the first versions, and bring more culinary authenticity and cultural awareness to the entire book. The newly updated, re-photographed and freshly illustrated edition of The Lotus and the Artichoke – Vegan Recipes from World Adventures is my classic, first journey in the world of vegan cookbooks reimagined and upgraded. Its my tribute to powerful memories, awesome individuals, and fantastic meals that Ive made, found, and shared with countless others like you. I’ve wanted to re-create my first cookbook for years, but the opportunity didn’t really arise until the surprises and challenges that have been this monster of a year, 2020. Yasai Izakaya Genki, Tokyo 2019 You see, I’d planned to return to Japan and continue my adventures from late 2019. Ultimately, now, Id be wrapping up The Lotus and the Artichoke – JAPAN. But when Corona hit, not only did it cancel nearly all my events and most of my income, like for so many people, lockdowns and border closures meant drastic changes not just daily life but to our travel plans as well. The struggle to return to a form of life that is more predictable and free has been different for all of us. As life has become more routine and restricted, our travels have been more in our minds and through the eyes of others-- through art, music, video and social media. A big part of my own escape these last months has been getting into the kitchen and diving back into my first cookbook - revisiting the intense dishes, unforgettable places and global flavors that shaped my life and projects over the last eight years. Ive cooked for the family, for friends, and for neighbors. Hopefully opportunities for more lunch and dinner parties and big cooking events will shape up soon! updated world map & photo collage for WORLD 2.0 edition NEW in Vegan Recipes from World Adventures 2.0: - brand NEW cover art & illustration! - NEW introduction & kitchen info! - more travel stories! - 8+ totally NEW recipes (not found in earlier editions!)  - 70+ newly photographed dishes!  - 100+ updated & improved recipes!  - better recipe names with respect to cultures & inspirations - 8+ additional pages of adventures & travels!

Red Lentil Dal (Instant Pot Recipe)

October 2 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Red Lentil Dal (Instant Pot Recipe) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Red Lentil Dal - Instant Pot Red Lentil Dal is a washed and split Masoor Dal. It is a rich, healthy lentil packed with protein and serves as a great side dish for a meal. You can also serve this as a comforting lentil soup. This is an easy dish to make. I am in my seventies and surprisingly I had never cooked or tasted this lentil. About a month back we had dinner with our friend, where she served this red lentil for dinner. We loved it. I asked her how she cooked this dal. It tasted so good! After finding out which lentil she had used, I was genuinely surprised. I questioned myself: why havent I been cooking it? I see this red lentil in an Indian grocery store all the time but never thought I should try it. My friend, like me, was surprised when she found out that this was my first time trying this dal. She suggested this lentil for Alex (my husband) and explained that it will be good for him since it is easy to digest. After that dinner, I have made this dal many times. It is an easy, simple recipe and it tastes delicious. I serve this dal with roti, rice, and one dry vegetable (e.g. aloo methi). I thought I should share this recipe because now this dal has become a staple dish for us. Recently I have been using an instant pot instead of a pressure-cooker. It takes the same time as the pressure cooker, but the advantage is that you dont have to watch over it when it starts steaming or when it is time to turn off. You can take care of other things in the meantime. This recipe will serve 3. Course Soup Cuisine Indian Keyword Dal Fry, Diabetic, Gravy, Hare Krishna, Healthy, High Protein, Homemade, Jain Food, Low Cholesterol, Low Fat, No Garlic, No Onion, Roti, Sattvic Food, Split Lentil, Split Masoor, Swami Narayan Food, Temple Food, Vaishnava Food Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 10 minutes Ingredients 1/­­2 cup red lentils 1 Tbsp oil 1/­­2 tsp cumin seeds 1/­­2 tsp mustard seeds 1/­­8 tsp asafetida 2 dry red chilies 1 Tbsp thinly sliced ginger 1/­­2 cup chopped tomato 1/­­4 tsp turmeric 1/­­4 tsp red chili powder 1 tsp salt 2 cup water InstructionsWash lentils changing water few times. I am using instant pot to make dal. Use the instant pot on sauté mode and add oil. After oil is moderately hot add cumin seeds, and mustard seeds, after the seeds crack, add asafetida, whole red chili and ginger stir for about a minute. Now take out the ginger and red chilies from oil and keep aside. We will use this later for garnishing. Next add tomatoes, turmeric, red chili powder and salt. Cook and stir until tomatoes are soft. Add dal and water, stir, and close the instant pot. Change the instant pot setting to pressure cooker mode. Cook for 14 minutes. Dal is done it should be soft. If needed add more water, dal should not be very thick. Dal will thicken as it sits. Make it more liquid than you want it to be. Take dal out in serving bowl and garnish with ginger and red chilies. Serve hot. The post Red Lentil Dal (Instant Pot Recipe) appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Everyday Pull-Apart Chick’n Seitan

January 18 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Everyday Pull-Apart Chick’n Seitan Makes 4 pounds This is the layery, flaky textured vegan chicken of your dinnertime dreams! I wanted something comparable to store-bought vegan chickn, but like, better? Its just the thing to simmer away on a Sunday then store and use throughout the week. The recipe is not difficult but it does require a few items, such as cheeseclotch and twine, which will only make you feel more cheffy than you already do. The cheesecloth also gives the outer layer a nice pin-prick texture that sears beautifully. The gist of the recipe is that the seitan dough is processed into a soft dough that is somehow clumpy yet totally holds together. Its then gathered pulled, twisted, bundled and simmered, creating a pull-apart texture that is reminiscent of the finest fakest meat. But it tastes so much better when it comes from your kitchen! The flavoring is subtle and versatile enough for everything from a South Asian stir-fry to an Italian parmesan. Theres just a touch of turmeric to lend luster and brighten up the color, pea protein gives it a good nice meatiness and texture. Would it work with something besides pea protein? I dont know! I didnt try it! But I really think the pea is key. For the simmering broth, use a diluted bullion. Just something lightly flavored to keep the flavors mellow. I’ll post more recipes for how to use it. It takes to marinades well and browns beautifully! Grilled, fried, shredded for soups, it’s so fantastically versatile and soaks up flavor like a champ. PS Thanks to Avocado & Ales, the inventor of Chickwheat, which is the shreddiest of shreddy seitan chickn! I used her method of food processing the seitan to give it a bit of that shreddy texture. If you are looking for realllllly shreddy chickn, check that one out. But Im sure you already have. This one is more chunky and pull apart. Like the title says.  Creating Perfect Simmered Seitan Bundles: A romance era novella ~ This recipe is not difficult. But often when people say something “isn’t difficult”, are they just talking you off the ledge? If it isnt difficult why would you have to even say that? Thus, in short, what I mean is that its not difficult IF you pay attention and read the directions, because every step counts. So read this in bed, the night before you make it, and then dream of perfect little seitan bundles. ~ Part 1: Cheesecloth. First of all, make sure you have cheesecloth and twine. Cut the cheesecloth into the proper sizes before beginning and set it aside. When wrapping, dont go too tight or it will make the chickn denser than intended. It will still be good! But this isnt a boustier. Leave some slack, because the seitan soaks in moisture and plumps up, leading to the layery, light shreds we are going for. If that sounds vague, hows this: make sure you can pull the cheesecloth about 1/­­2 an inch away from the seitan once its wrapped. So, snug and secure, with a little room to breath. ~ Part 2: Mind your broth temp. If the broth is too hot you can water log the seitan, but this is very easy to prevent. Before adding the seitan, bring the broth up to a low boil, then lower the heat so that its not boiling at all, just very hot. Then add the seitan bundles. When you add the seitan, the broth temperature will drop even more. Bring the heat up slightly. During this time, the seitan will be developing a skin which will protect it from becoming, as they say, seitan brains. Once it is on this low heat for about 20 minutes, you can raise the heat to a low boil. Now its really cooking! Cook this way for about 45 more minutes, with the lid ajar, using tongs to rotate the bundles every 15 minutes or so. ~Part 3: Cool it now. The cooling off stage is crucial, as if your seitan is heading from a hot spring to a spa at a ski resort. Turn the heat off and let the seitan cool in the broth. This can take an hour or so, but its worth it for perfectly cooked fake chicken. If you have a cool place to put it, thats great. An open porch? A safe fire escape? OK, now that you have attended the Ladys School For Seitan, you should be well prepared to strike out on your own. Have fun and remember: you were made for this! Ingredients For the Chick’n Seitan: 2 cups water 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 1 1/­­2 teaspoons salt 2 teaspoons onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/­­2 teaspoon white pepper 1/­­8 teaspoon turmeric 1/­­4 cup nutritional yeast flakes 1/­­2 cup pea protein flour 1 1/­­2 cups vital wheat gluten For the broth: 10 cups chickeny vegetable broth 8 bay leaves Directions Have ready 4 nine-inch double layered cheesecloth squares and twine. In a food processor fit with a metal blade, whiz together water, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper and turmeric. Add nutritional yeast and pea protein and process until smooth, about 30 seconds.  Now add the vital wheat gluten and pulse in. Once it is all incorporated, process on low for about 5 minutes. It will be very stretchy, stringy and pliable. Give the motor a break once in awhile if your processor cant handle it.  Divide the dough into 4 even-ish pieces. From this point, be careful not to overhandle the seitan because you want it to retain its texture, which will allow it to separate nicely once cooked.  Gently roll a glob of gluten into an 8 inch roll. Fold in half, give a twist and pull again so its about 6 inches long. This creates the layers. Wrap in cheesecloth, snugly but not tightly, it will expand. Tie with each end with twine. Proceed with the remaining pieces and let rest while you prepare the broth. In a large (8-quart) pot bring broth to a boil. Lower heat. Add the seitan bundles. Let stew very gently without boiling for about 15 minutes. When skin is set, place the lid ajar for steam to escape and low boil for about 45 more minutes.  Cool completely in broth. Pull apart and use how ever you want! It tastes best if browned in some olive oil first.

BBQ Tempeh Ribs

January 5 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

BBQ Tempeh Ribs Serves 4 Photo By VK Rees Smoky, sticky sweet finger licking ribs! But be sure to lick YOUR OWN fingers, weirdo. These are inspired by my fave vegan BBQ joint in Portland, OR, Homegrown Smoker. Im not saying theyre as good, but they get me there without the airfare. Serve with cornbread or mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potatoes or rice or coleslaw or potato salad or in a hero or all of the above. This recipe is originally from I Can Cook Vegan. Recipe Notes ~Often times, I prefer to steam tempeh before using because it removes bitterness and makes the tempeh more succulent. But you can skip that step here for a few reasons. First, I want the tempeh to be crisp and browned. Secondly, if you sear it on high enough heat, it does cook through and remove the bitterness. Youre left with nutty, meaty, toothsome bites. Use cast iron for best results! ~To make the tempeh look like one long line of ribs, turn the pieces carefully as you cook them so that they stay pretty much in the same order you cut them in. Does that make sense? OK, look at the pics for reference. Ingredients For the BBQ sauce: 2 tablespoons cornstarch 1 cup cold vegetable broth 1 1/­­4 cups ketchup 1/­­3 cup brown sugar 1/­­3 cup tamari or soy sauce 1/­­3 cup apple cider vinegar 2 teaspoons liquid smoke 1 1/­­2 tablespoons garlic powder 1 tablespoon onion powder 1/­­4 teaspoon cayenne For the tempeh: 2 8-oz packages of tempeh sliced into eighths widthwise 2 tablespoons olive oil Directions Make the sauce: In a small saucepot, use a fork to vigorously whisk the cornstarch into the vegetable broth until its mostly dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Place over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it comes to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to a low simmer and let the sauce thicken for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Make the ribs: Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle in 1 tablespoon of oil and a pinch of salt. Fry tempeh on one side till browned, about 5 minutes. Drizzle the remaining oil over the tempeh and sprinkle with salt then flip. Brown that side for about 5 minutes.  Pour about 1/­­2 cup of barbeque sauce into the pan and flip to coat. Let it cook and caramelize for about 3 minutes.  Remove from pan and line the ribs up on a plate. Drizzle more warmed barbeque sauce all over them to serve.

Pumpkin Chickpea Curry

November 13 2020 Vegan Richa 

Pumpkin Chickpea CurryThis easy one-pot pumpkin curry is the perfect fall comfort food for the cold season! A fragrant Indian inspired veggie curry made featuring warming spices, fresh veggies, chickpeas. Pumpkin purée in the curry sauce makes it so creamy! Perfect for weeknights! Jump to Recipe We’re in the midst of squash/­­pumpkin season and while I love using pumpkin puree for all by bakes and cakes, I do also enjoy our favorite fall baking ingredient in savory dishes. During the cozy season, I love adding canned pumpkin puree to soups, curries, as a natural thicking agent and to add that gorgeous orange color. I mean look at those bowls of pumpkin curry! Don’t you want to hug them? Canned pumpkin purée and creamy oat milk, heavily seasoned with Indian spices make a sweet and satisfying curry sauce for the chickpea curry. Its a rich, creamy fall-centric curry that you can eat on its own, or serve over steamed rice, quinoa or couscous. If you want to incorporate different vegetables, go ahead. I love to stir in some spinach, but baby kale or sliced green beans add the same color effect. Just add your leafy green during the last few minutes of cooking, letting them soften in the sauce. As with any curry, the key to this dish is building layers of flavor! In this pumpkin chickpea curry we begin with browning some ground spices in hot oil to kick-start those Indian aromatics then add some onions, garlic and ginger. You can use any other squash purée or mash instead of pumpkin. Your kitchen will already smell spectacular by now, and all thats left to do is stir in some oat milk, pumpkin puree, chickpeas, and veggies of your choosing. Now simmer until the veggies are cooked. Season with a squeeze of lime, and your curry is served! I love this with rice but you can opt for any other grain or cauliflower rice.

Tie-Dye Purple Cauliflower Alfredo

July 17 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Tie-Dye Purple Cauliflower Alfredo Serves 6 The world is a nightmare, dinner doesnt have to be. What if pasta could be a fantasy dreamworld where our alfredo was tie-dye purple? But this alfredo is not just pretty, its so, so tasty! Purple cauliflower is braised just until tender, keeping its color somewhat intact and bringing a deep, cruciferous flavor, plus lots of creaminess, to the sauce.  Note, I said it keeps its color somewhat intact. I had to throw in a non-conventional ingredient to make the lavender pop a bit. Dont hate…its frozen blueberries! But you really cant taste them and you know you have some laying around for the apocalypse.  So youll be left with a pretty lavender sauce to coat your noodles in. But it doesnt stop there! Take a lemon and squirt it over the plate, then watch your lavender deepem into fuschia and magenta streaks, splotches and ribbons of color. You are the greatest artist of your generation. Make sure to do this tableside and get a video of it.  OK, now get yourself on an app, order some purple cauli and whip this up! Its good wholesome entertainment for the whole fam (or your cats) and a relaxing escape that will make you think of a better possible future. Right? Recipes Notes ~ Some serving ideas: grilled or breaded tofu, tofu balls (recipes for all of those exist on this site, I’m just too world weary to link to them), toasted pine nuts, springs of fresh basil, your favorite fake chick’n. ~ Bottled lemon juice will work, but fresh will taste better! ~ If you dont have purple cauli this wont work out but it will still be a tasty cauliflower recipe.  ~ For best results, trim the white parts of the cauliflower away as much as possible so that you are left with mostly purple floret. ~ Dont use too dark a veg broth. The lighter you go, the less muted your sauce will be. ~ If you dont have a high speed blender, do not despair. Just soak the cashews for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight) and proceed with your regular old blender. You can also boil them for 20 minutes if you are super short on time and didnt plan ahead. Ingredients 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil 1 cup sliced shallot 6 cloves garlic, minced 3 cups vegetable broth 1 head purple cauliflower in small florets (about 6 cups) 3/­­4 cups whole unroasted cashews 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (plus extra for squeezing) 1/­­4 cup nutritional yeast 10 frozen blueberries 3/­­4 teaspoons salt 1 pound fettuccine, cooked according to package directions in salted water Directions 1 – Boil salted water for pasta and get that whole thing going. By the time youre done making the sauce sauce the pasta should be drained and ready.  2 – Preheat a large pan over medium heat. Sauté shallot in coconut oil with a pinch of salt for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic to the pan and spoon a little dab of oil on it. Mix in with the shallots and cook another 2 minutes.  3 – Add the broth, cover pan and bring to a boil. Place the cauliflower in the pan in as much of a single layer as possible. Cover and steam about 4 minutes. Mix cauliflower in the liquid, cover and steam another 4 minutes. It should be fork tender. Remove a few florets to place on the individual pasta plates later, if you like. 4 – In the meantime, place the cashews, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, blueberries and salt in a high speed blender (see note if you don’t have a highspeed blender). When the cauliflower is done, transfer it to the blender. Let sit for 10 minutes or so just to stop steaming. At that point, blend until smooth, scraping down the sides 5 – When pasta is ready, drain and pour the sauce over it. Reserve a little bit for dolloping over the plates of pasta. Taste pasta for salt. The saltiness with vary depending on your salted water and the saltiness of the broth. 6 – Place pasta in bowls, spoon additional sauce over noodles. Now take a seeded lemon and squirt it all over the pasta. Voila! Tie dye alfedo.
