Christmas Breakfast with Pom & Flora

December 4 2018 Green Kitchen Stories 

Christmas Breakfast with Pom & Flora Last week we biked over to our friends Anna & Rasmus. They run two super cozy and popular cafes in Stockholm called Pom & Flora. Together we made a Christmas inspired breakfast with Saffron Buns, Lingonberry Smoothie Bowls, Gingerbread Truffles, Xmas Tree Smoothie and their signature Christmas Saffron Porridge. Our Elsa and their son Henry helped out with the food and they also gave the cafe a Christmas decoration touch-up . We recorded this little video from that morning. You can find all the recipes from the video below. We will be back soon with a savory Christmas recipe roundup. xo Lucia Saffron Buns Lussebullar Makes around 24 large buns For a vegan version simply replace butter with coconut oil + almond butter and quark with a vegan soft cheese alternative or yogurt. 50 g fresh active yeast or 1 tbsp dry active yeast 1/­­2 tsp sea salt 1 g (2 sachets) saffron powder 120 g organic butter (or 100 g coconut oil + 20 g almond butter) 2 cups milk of choice (oat milk, rice milk, cow’s milk or soy milk) 100 g /­­ 1/­­2 cup coconut sugar or maple syrup 250 g /­­ 1 cup quark cheese, greek yogurt or vegan yogurt 800 g /­­ 7 cups flour (we use half light and half whole grain) 50 raisins (approx. 1/­­3 cup) Brush with 1 egg yolk, beaten  (use plant milk for vegan alternative) Crumble the yeast in a large mixing bowl. Melt butter in a medium size sauce pan, then add milk, sugar or maple syrup and saffron and heat until 37°C /­­ 98°F. Pour the mixture into the mixing bowl with yeast. Add quark cheese and stir around until dissolved. Add 2/­­3 of the flour. Stir around with a wooden spoon until it is thick enough to knead with your hands. Add more flour until the dough is easy to work with and has formed into a round ball that doesnt stick to your hands. Cover the bowl with a kitchen cloth and leave to rise in a warm place for about an hour, or until double in size and full of air pockets. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for a minute, form it into the shape of a baguette. Divide it into 24 equal pieces and, using your hands, roll each piece into a long 1/­­2-inch ( about 1 cm) thick string. Then roll both ends tight in opposite direction into an S-shaped bun. Place buns, well spaced apart, on 2 baking sheets, cover with a cloth and set aside in a warm spot to rise for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 440°F (225°C). Brush the buns with an egg yolk or milk and then place one raisin in each circle. Bake the buns until golden brown on top, about 5-8 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to let cool slightly. Serve! Xmas Tree Smoothie 2 glasses 2-3 large kale leaves, stems removed 1 banana 2 dates 1 tbsp hazelnut butter 250 ml /­­ 1 cup oat milk or plant milk of choice 1/­­2 lemon, juice 2 tsp freshly grated ginger 1 tsp ground cinnamon To serve 1 tbsp shredded coconut snow 2 spruce sprigs Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the flavours to your liking. Serve in to glasses and sprinkle with coconut snow and decorate with spruce sprigs. Lingonberry Smoothie Bowl Serves 2 2 frozen bananas (sliced)  250 ml /­­ 1 cup oat milk or milk of choice, more if needed 500 ml /­­ 2 cups frozen lingon berries 1 tsp ground cardamom 2 tbsp tahini (sesame paste) For serving 2 tbsp toasted buckwheat  2 tbsp desiccated coconut Start by blitzing the coconut in a food processor so it looks like tiny snow flakes, then set aside. Add all smoothie bowl ingredients to the food processor and blend until smooth and thick like a soft serve. Spoon into two bowls and serve with toasted buckwheat and the coconut snow flakes. Pom’s Christmas Porridge Serves 4 500 ml /­­ 2 cups oat milk 250 ml /­­ 1 cup water 1 tsp ground cardamom 1 pinch sea salt 100 g /­­ 1 cup steel cut oats 100 g /­­ 1 cup rolled oats 0,5 g ground saffron (1 sachet) 2 tbsp raisins 2 tbsp dried cranberries   For serving  4 tbsp mascarpone 125 ml /­­ 1/­­2 cup foamed oat milk Place oat milk, water, cardamom and salt in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the steel cut oats and whisk to combine, bring to the boil, lower the heat and then add the rolled oats, saffran, raisins and cranberries and let simmer for 6-8 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the porridge sit for a couple of minutes before serving. When ready, spoon into two bowls and serve with mascarpone and foamed oat milk. Gingerbread truffles Makes 20 truffles 16 soft dates, pitted 60 g almonds 2 tbsp coconut oil 1/­­2 tsp ground ginger 1/­­2 tsp cinnamon 1/­­2 tsp cardamom 1/­­2 tsp allspice 1 pinch cloves 1/­­4 tsp salt For rolling 50 g /­­ 1/­­2 cup desiccated coconut 50 g /­­ 1/­­2 cup desiccated coconut mixed with 1/­­2 tsp beetroot powder Mix all the ingredients in a food processor for about 1 minute or until it forms up like a ball. If using dried dates, you can soak them in hot water for 30 minutes before adding them to the food processor. Remove the knife blades from the food processor. Place the mixture in the fridge for about 10 minutes, if it is too sticky to form, it depends on how sticky the dates are. Then form 15 - 20 small round truffles with your hands. Roll half of the truffles in shredded coconut and the other half in shredded coconut mixed with beetroot powder for a red colour. If the coconut doesnt stick, you can dip the truffles in cold water before rolling them in the coconut. Serve or store in the fridge. ******* Here is also our last video from when we went out in the forest foraging mushrooms with our friend Niki, cooked over open fire and forgot to bring anything to eat from/­­with :)

Rosemary’s Beets with Hazelnuts and Basil

September 17 2018 Meatless Monday 

This rustic beet side from Alex of The New Baguette was inspired by a side dish at Rosemary’s in New York City. Ideally, the recipe uses baby rainbow beets from the farmers market, but if the farmers market isn’t practical, feel free to use regular supermarket beets. The hazelnuts are crucial to the success of this beet side dish. You can buy them pre-roasted, but roasting them yourself makes a huge difference. You can typically find raw hazelnuts at the bulk bin section of any store. Blanched raw hazelnuts are best because the skins have already been removed. If you cant find blanched, you may remove the skins by rolling freshly roasted hazelnuts under your palms in a kitchen towel. Serves 6 - 1 1/­­2 pounds baby rainbow beets, scrubbed - 3/­­4 cup raw hazelnuts - About 7 large basil leaves, cut into thin ribbons - 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, to taste - 1-2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, to taste - 1/­­4 teaspoon fine sea salt   Preheat the oven to 350?F. Place the beets in a medium pot and add enough water to cover by 1 inch. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer with the lid ajar until tender, about 25 minutes (large beets may take up to 45). Meanwhile, arrange the hazelnuts in an even layer on a baking sheet and roast for 8 to 10 minutes, until fragrant, being careful not to burn them. If your hazelnuts still have the skins on, place the nuts on one end of a kitchen towel and cover with the other end. Roll them under your palms to remove the skins. Its okay if not all the skins come off. When the hazelnuts are cool enough to handle, roughly chop them. When the beets are done cooking, drain them and run the pot under cold water. Let the beets stand in cold water until cool (you may have to change the water). At this point the skins should be easy to slip off with your hands (wear gloves if you dont want your fingers to turn red). Cut the beets into 1-inch chunks and place in a bowl. Add the basil, oil, lemon juice, salt, and most of the hazelnuts. Toss to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with the remaining hazelnuts.

Vegan Cheesy Steak-Out Sandwiches

July 24 2018 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Vegan Cheesy Steak-Out Sandwiches If ever there was a recipe in need of veganizing, its the Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich. The good news is, its easy to do and the result is fantastic. Made with thinly sliced Portobello mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers, these hearty Steak-Out Sandwiches are then topped with some creamy Cheesy Sauce, and enveloped in a crusty baguette. Note: Thinly sliced seitan may be substituted for the mushrooms. Cheesy Steak-Out Sandwiches If ever there was a recipe in need of veganizing, its the Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich. The good news is, its easy to do and the result is fantastic. Made with thinly sliced Portobello mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers, this hearty sandwich is then topped with some creamy Cheesy Sauce, and enveloped in a crusty baguette. Note: Thinly sliced seitan may be substituted for the mushrooms. - 1 tablespoon olive oil - 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced - 6 Portobello mushroom caps, thinly sliced - 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced - 1/­­3 cup ketchup - 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce - Salt and freshly ground black pepper - 3/­­4 cup Cheddary Sauce ((recipe follows)) - 1 French baguette, cut into quarters, each quarter sliced lengthwise - Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper and mushroom slices and cook, stirring occasionally, to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook for 5 minutes longer, or until the vegetables are very soft. Spoon about half of the cheddary sauce onto the mushroom mixture and keep warm while you toast the bread. Divide the mushroom mixture among the baguette sections and top each with some of the remaining cheddary sauce. Serve hot. Text excerpted from VEGANIZE IT! (C) 2017 by Robin Robertson.

Photo by William and Susan Brinson.   Cheddary Sauce Use this creamy, flavorful sauce anytime you want to add an exclamation point to whatever youre serving. I use this sauce to make mac uncheese or as a topping for baked potatoes and steamed or roasted vegetables. With the addition of some spices and a little heat, it can also be used to top nachos and enchiladas. Even more remarkable, just omit the nondairy milk and add melted coconut oil and you have the makings of a fantastic cheddary cheese log. If not using beer or sherry, add an extra 1/­­2 teaspoon of miso past - 1 1/­­4 cups raw cashews, soaked in hot water for 4 hours, then well-drained - 1/­­3 cup nutritional yeast - 2 tablespoons jarred chopped pimientos or roasted red bell pepper, drained and blotted dry - 1 tablespoon beer, white wine, or dry sherry ( (optional, but recommended)) - 1 tablespoon rice vinegar - 1 1/­­2 teaspoons light-colored miso paste - 1 teaspoon salt -  1/­­2 teaspoon smoked paprika -  1/­­2 teaspoon onion powder -  1/­­2 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard -  1/­­4 teaspoon turmeric - 1 cup plain unsweetened almond milk - Combine all the ingredients in a high-speed blender. Process until the mixture is pureed and smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. The sauce is now ready to use in recipes. Use as is, or heat gently in a saucepan for a minute or two, if desired, stirring in a little more milk, if needed, for a thinner sauce. Store leftovers in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container for up to 5 days Text excerpted from VEGANIZE IT! (C) 2017 by Robin Robertson. Reproduced by permission of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Bánh M? Tostadas

July 11 2017 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Bánh M? Tostadas East meets West in this tasty fusion combo. Tostada means toasted in Spanish and is the name of a Mexican dish in which a toasted tortilla is the base for other ingredients that top it. Bánh m? is a popular Vietnamese sandwich that features crisp pickled vegetables, fragrant cilantro, chiles, and zesty hoisin and sriracha sauces. In this iteration, bánh m? ingredients find themselves on toasted tortillas instead of in a baguette to make Bánh M? Tostadas. Corn tortillas are usually used for tostadas, although wheat tortillas may be used if you prefer. Bánh M? Tostadas - 1 large carrot, shredded - 1/­­2 English cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped - 2 cups finely shredded cabbage - 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves - 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalape?o chiles ((optional)) - 1 teaspoon dark (toasted) sesame oil - 1 tablespoon neutral vegetable oil - 2 garlic cloves, minced - 1/­­4 cup minced scallions - 1 1/­­2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger - 1 (8-ounce) package baked tofu, cut into thin strips - 3 tablespoons soy sauce - 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce - 2 tablespoons rice vinegar - 1 to 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce - 1 teaspoon sugar Tostada shells: - 4 to 6 corn or flour tortillas - 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil Toppings: - In a large bowl, combine the carrot, cucumber, cabbage, cilantro, and jalape?os, if using. Drizzle on the sesame oil and toss gently to combine. Set aside. - Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, scallions, and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Add the tofu and 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce and mix well to coat the tofu. Set aside to cool. - In a small bowl, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce, the hoisin, vinegar, sriracha, and sugar, stirring well to blend. Tostada shells: - Preheat the oven to 400°F. Arrange the tortillas in a single layer on two baking sheets. Brush both sides of each tortilla with oil. Bake for 5 minutes on one side, then flip the tortillas over and bake for 2 to 3 minutes longer, until crispy. Watch carefully so they dont burn. To assemble: - Evenly divide the tofu among the tostada shells. Top each with some of the vegetable mixture, then the sauce. Serve immediately.

Marinated Eggpland Sandwich {Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day}

September 5 2015 seitan is my motor 

Marinated Eggpland Sandwich {Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day}Welcome back to another day of Vegan Mofo 2015. Best sandwich ever? Ar you kidding me? I don’t have best sandwich recipe ever, but I have a best sandwiches ever book. Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day came out three years ago and I still use it on a regular basis. It’s been a life saver during this crazy hot summer, even though many recipes call for baking or frying something. But it’s easy to make a lot of things in advance and have them handy once you get super hungry and don’t feel like preparing an elaborate meal. The following recipe shares the title “Best Sandwich Ever” with several other recipes in this book by Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes and it has been on our plates several times since the book came out. I love that there are two different marinades, which are also very flexible. Instead of Cajun spice mix I have used curry or berbere. Both the tofu and the eggplant slices make a lot. I usually store them in the fridge and use them as sides for other dishes as well. (If you cut the tofu into slices thinner than 1/­­4 inch.) Print Marinated Eggpland Sandwich {Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day} 4 Sandwiches IngredientsFor marinated eggplant 1 small (14 ounces, or 400 g) eggplant, cut in half widthwise, then cut lengthwise into 1/­­4-inch (6-mm)-thick slices 1/­­4 cup (60 ml) olive oil, divided 2 tablespoons (30 ml) apple cider vinegar 2 teaspoons Cajun spice mix 2 teaspoons vegan Worcestershire sauce 1/­­2 teaspoon liquid smoke For tofu 1/­­4 cup (60 ml) white balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil 2 tablespoons (15 g) nutritional yeast 1 teaspoon onion powder 2 cloves garlic, pressed Salt and pepper, to taste 1 pound (454 g) super-firm or extra-firm tofu, drained, pressed, and cut lengthwise into four 1/­­4-inch (6-mm) steaks For sandwiches 1/­­2 cup (112 g) vegan mayonnaise 4 sub sandwich rolls or mini baguettes, 6 inches (15 cm) long, cut in half and lightly toasted 1 1/­­3 cups (96 g) shredded lettuce InstructionsTo make the marinated eggplant: Preheat the broiler to 450°F (230°C, or gas mark 8). Place the eggplant on one or two large baking sheets. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of the olive oil with the vinegar and Cajun spice mix. Lightly brush this mixture on both sides of the eggplant slices. Broil for 4 minutes on each side, or until dark brown. In the meantime, in another small bowl, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil with the Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven. Brush both sides of the eggplant slices with the Worcestershire mixture and let them cool on a wire rack. Let stand for at least 30 minutes before serving, or even better, up to overnight. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. To get the best out of the flavors, bring back to room temperature before serving. To make the tofu: Combine the vinegar, oil, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large rectangular shallow dish. Add the tofu and turn to coat thoroughly; let marinate for 30 minutes. Decrease the oven temperature to 425°F (220°C, or gas mark 7). Bake the tofu for 30 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Note that the tofu will become chewier once cooled. To assemble the sandwiches: Spread 1 tablespoon (14 g) mayonnaise on each side of the roll. Place 1/­­3 cup (24 g) shredded lettuce on top. Place 1 tofu slice on each sandwich and place 4 to 6 slices marinated eggplant on top. Serve immediately.NotesRecipe from Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day by Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes.

There are many versions of this salad throughout central and South America, so lets add this plant-based pantry version to the list. If you like heat, add the jalapeno - if not, leave it out. The avocado is an optional but delicious inclusion.

Fried Brown Rice with Vegetables

May 22 2017 Meatless Monday 

Fried rice gets a bad reputation for being to greasy, carb-y and lacking in veggies, but when you make your own quick version at home, it can become a healthy, veggie-loaded meatless meal! This recipe was developed by Alexandra Shytsman of The New Baguette and is featured in her free Weeknight Cooking E-book. Serves 4-6 - 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon coconut oil OR cold-pressed organic canola oil - 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil - 2 medium garlic cloves, minced - 1 tablespoon minced ginger - Pinch of hot red pepper flakes - 1 medium yellow onion, cut into small dice - 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into small dice - 1 bell pepper, cut into small dice - 1 cup frozen edamame OR peas - 3 cups cooked brown rice, cold from the fridge* - 3 tablespoons soy sauce, divided - 1 egg - 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds - 2 scallions, chopped Heat coconut and sesame oils in a wok or large non-stick skillet over high heat. Add garlic, ginger and pepper flakes, and cook for 1 minute. Add onion, carrot and pepper and cook until vegetables are just starting to brown, about 3 minutes, tossing occasionally. Mix in edamame or peas and cook for another minute. Add rice and stir to incorporate evenly. Cook until rice is heated through and starting to brown, 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. In a small bowl, beat the egg with 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Push the rice mixture to one side of the skillet and pour beaten egg onto opposite side. Stir the egg continuously until it is scrambled. Season rice mixture with remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce, and toss everything in the skillet together to combine evenly. Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions. *To cook perfectly fluffy brown rice, bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a small pot, and season with 1/­­4 teaspoon salt. Turn heat down to low, add 1 cup of rice, cover tightly with a lid, and simmer until all water is absorbed, 15-20 minutes – do not stir rice while cooking. Turn heat off and let rice stand covered for another 10 minutes to steam. Fluff with a fork before serving/­­using. The post Fried Brown Rice with Vegetables appeared first on Meatless Monday.

Vegane Mayonnaise – drei Zutaten

April 29 2016 seitan is my motor 

Ich liebe Mayonnaise und könnte alles damit zukleistern. Auf ein Baguette mit Tomaten, Basilikum und gebratenem Tempeh gehört unbedingt Mayo. Zu den Pommes esse ich natürlich immer Mayo und nie Ketchup. Und manchmal mache ich einfach den Kühlschrank auf und esse einen Löffel direkt aus dem Glas. So ist das. Mittlerweile gibt es verschiedene veganeRead more The post Vegane Mayonnaise – drei Zutaten appeared first on seitan is my motor.

My Mother's Stuffing Recipe: Gratitude Entry Number 328

November 25 2015 Vegan Thyme 

My Mother's Stuffing Recipe: Gratitude Entry Number 328 Today, I went for a run while DH hiked. We each had a dog in hand.  Nary a soul on the trail.  It was heaven.  Solitude.  Cool day, crisp breeze off the Mississippi River.  I logged three and a half miles. Frankie lead the whole way.  She's now sixteen months old.  Such a big girl.  Tomorrow, we sit around the table counting blessings, eating enough stuffing to officially count as an "entire baguette" (per person!) and keeping leftovers in the fridge hoping we (I) won't have to cook again for at least another five days.  I have had an especially good year (knock on wood).  No broken bones, still running, no serious illnesses, time with family and friends, etc. So many more things. But to keep this focused, I thought I'd stick with these few that come to mind. (There are thirty-seven more days left in this year. I know!) First of all. . .  For my husband, and the four-legged kiddos.  For brioche knitting.  What!?  Learning brioche knitting nearly did me in.  There were major knitting needle throw downs.  There were a few hissy fits. Many knots to untangle. Because it has taken me FOREVER to figure this out.  Thankfully, no one was hurt. I am quite proud of this knitting maneuver.  Score one for Over Fifty Brain! There will be more brioche knitting in my future.  For our sweet little special rescue who loves everyone she meets. She is our "senior" special needs girl.  She has taught us many life lessons.  For time with my sister.  I don't know where I'd be without her support, unconditional love and simple sisterly wisdom. Our mother was a kitchen goddess on Thanksgiving. It was the ONE day of the year we could count on her to really throw down in the food department.  Until she was too ill to carry on the tradition and a bucket of chicken became our Thanksgiving meal.  (Those were dark days.) My mom's stuffing recipe resides in my heart and I make it every year.  Or some iteration of it. It's gone through some revisions over the years, but the basic premise of it is the same. I've noted the ingredients which have become "newly-added": equal parts celery and onions with a stick of vegan butter cooked until onions soften (1-2 sticks vegan butter) two or more teaspoons sage, thyme and rosemary (yes, all of them)  (not the leaf kind of sage, the powder kind) bread cubes--like four cups or more *be sure ALL bread cubes are coated in butter before you add a single other thing (this is where the nibbling/­­eating of the stuffing always begins--you must taste it to be sure it has a sage-y flavor) wild rice (1/­­3 cup cooked--my new twist) 8 oz. mushrooms chopped (new) chopped pecans and dried cherries (like a 1/­­3 cup--also new to recipe) fresh ground pepper (lots) a bit of salt cook all these things together over medium heat until everything sort of smells and tastes amazing add about 2 qts. veggie stock  add stock in slow increments over a medium heat until all the ingredients begin to bubble and most of the bread cubes look like they are disintegrating, then add more stock, cook liquid down turn off heat pour stuffing into casserole dish pour a bit more stock over bread cube mixture bake at 425 for 30-40 minutes So grateful I watched her make this.  Thanks, mom!

Weekly Plant-Based Dinner Plan, October 5 – 9, 2015

October 5 2015 VegKitchen 

Weekly Plant-Based Dinner Plan, October 5 – 9, 2015For this first full week of October, the craving is for warming, hearty, but not yet wintery meals. Here’s a handful of menus to inspire your meal planning this week. Provençal Bean Stew (above) is a meatless version of a classic rustic French recipe. A fresh, crusty French baguette is perfect for soaking up its delicious broth. And it doesn’t take long to make! A bountiful tossed salad makes it a complete meal. Rice Noodle Soup with Lettuce and Shiitake Mushrooms (above) is a simple Asian-style soup, filled with fine noodles, crunchy lettuce, and healthy shiitake mushrooms. It takes minutes to cook, and is a welcome treat on blustery or rainy early fall evenings. Serve with store-bought vegetable spring rolls (from your natural foods store freezer), a simple seitan or tempeh dish, and a platter of sliced tomatoes and peppers. Orange-Glazed Tofu and Broccoli is enlivened with an easy citrus-flavored sauce. Serve over brown rice, and add a simple slaw-style salad and any leftover soup from last night’s dinner. Tip: Cook some extra brown rice for tomorrow night’s dinner; you’ll be glad you did! Cuban-Inspired Black Beans and Rice gives you a good reason to have cooked rice on hand for weeknight meals. Once it’s on hand, this preparation requires a minimum of effort. Cook up some extra rice for tomorrow nights dinner. Add a steamed green vegetable and a colorful salad or slaw to the menu. End the week with an autumnal Friday pizza night. White Pizza with Sweet Potatoes, Onions, and Olives is a delectably different kind of pizza--a white vegan pizza brimming with well-cooked onions, roasted sweet potato, and briny olives. Combined with most any kind of salad.

8 Easy, Amazing Vegan Appetizers -VegKitchen’s Favorites

December 7 2014 VegKitchen 

8 Easy, Amazing Vegan Appetizers -VegKitchen’s FavoritesFor winter gatherings, my favorite food theme for entertaining is a delicious vegan appetizer buffet with wine, cocktails, and/­­or mocktails. After that, who needs dinner? You can then skip to coffee/­­tea and light desserts. Here are 8 tasty dips and finger foods, our absolute favorites from VegKitchen’s vast array of Vegan Appetizer Recipes. Choose 5 or 6 of these and serve with your favorite beverages. Above, Smoky Vegan Cheddar Cheez. You’ll find the way to the recipe with the 4th link below, along with its spreadable version. Photo above by Hannah Kaminsky. Colorful and briny, small servings of Olive Bar Medley with Tofu “Feta” go a long way. Choose two or three different varieties of pitted olives from your supermarkets olive bar, add an extra item or two, and you’ve got a winning appetizer. Photo above by Susan Voisin. Rosemary Roasted Mushrooms is an appetizer that can also be used as a first course for almost any kind of meal. Use any kind of mushroom you like, or a combination of two or three. Skillet Spiced Chickpeas will give you good flavor and texture every time; oven-roasting seems to dry these delicious legumes out. These are good eaten out of hand as a snack, in place of far more caloric nuts. They make a tasty salad topping, as well. You can make Smoky Vegan Cheddar Cheez as a spread in no time, or let it set up into slices, as shown at the top of this post. I like it both ways and hope that you will, too. This is good with sliced fresh baguette, or serve it with whole-grain crackers or crisp breads, and/­­or fresh veggies. Photo above by Hannah Kaminsky. Tempeh Fries with Horseradish or Wasabi-Dill Mayonnaise can be a bit addictive, so you may want to double the recipe if serving hungry tempeh fans. Photo above by Hannah Kaminsky. Sweet and Spiced Glazed Nuts are a tasty finger food at special occasion, or as an everyday snack. Use any combination of your favorite nuts -- peanuts, almond, pecans, walnuts, macadamia nuts, cashews, etc. Green Pea, Parsley, and Pistachio Dip is great served with brightly colored vegetables--baby carrots, sliced red bell peppers, rounds of yellow squash, and thin wedges of raw sweet potato. Photo above by Hannah Kaminsky.

Sriracha Sesame Tofu Sandwich

October 6 2014 Meatless Monday 

Forget greasy ham, egg and cheese sandwiches. This recipe swaps in healthy additions like a whole grain baguette, tofu and a hefty dose of tomatoes and greens. This recipe comes to us from Sharon Palmer of and appears in The Home Cook Breakfast Book, a collaboration between Meatless Monday and Earthbound Farm. Serves 4 - 1 (15 oz.) package extra firm tofu - 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce - 1 clove garlic, minced - 1 teaspoon ginger, minced - 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (may decrease or increase according to spice preference) - 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds - 4 slices of tomato - 1/­­2 cup green and red baby lettuce leaves - 4 1-ounce slices whole grain baguette Preheat oven to 375 F. Drain tofu and slice in half lengthwise, and in half crosswise, to create 4 rectangular pieces. Place in a small baking dish. Mix together soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sriracha sauce, and sesame seeds. Drizzle over tofu. Place tofu on top rack of oven and cook for about 15 minutes, until golden brown. While tofu is baking, place baguette slices on a small baking sheet and place in oven to toast for about 5 minutes, until browned and crisp. To arrange sandwiches, place one toast on a serving dish, layer with one-fourth of the lettuce leaves, 1 slice of baked tofu, and top with 1 slice tomato. Repeat to make 4 open face sandwiches.   Serve immediately. The post Sriracha Sesame Tofu Sandwich appeared first on Meatless Monday.

Olive Bar Medley with Tofu Feta

August 18 2014 VegKitchen 

Olive Bar Medley with Tofu FetaColorful and briny, small servings of this appetizer go a long way. Choose two or three different varieties of pitted olives from your supermarkets olive bar. Add one extra item, as listed in the last ingredient suggestions, in this list, such as  pickled peppers or garlic, to spice up the mix. If youd like to pair this up with another appetizer, my suggestion would be something mellow, such as Green Pea, Parsley, and Pistachio Dip  with raw veggies,   plus fresh sliced baguette. Recipe adapted from Vegan Holiday Kitchen. Photos by Susan Voisin. Serves: 12 - 8 ounces extra-firm tofu - 3 tablespoons lemon juice - 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil - 1/­­4 teaspoon salt - 1/­­4 teaspoon oregano - 1 1/­­2 cups mixed cured pitted olives - 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced on the diagonal - 1 small red bell pepper, cut into narrow strips - 1/­­2 to 3/­­4 cup, cherry peppers, other small pickled peppers, or pickled garlic, or a combination Slice the tofu into 4 slabs, crosswise. Blot between layers of paper towel or clean tea towels until you get out as much moisture as you can. Cut the slabs into 1/­­2 inch dice. Place the tofu in the serving container in which you plan to serve this. Toss with the lemon juice and oil; sprinkle with the salt and oregano. Let stand for 30 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients to the container and toss gently. This can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until needed, or served at once. Spoon small portions of this onto small plates; serve with cocktail forks or toothpicks.
