The 8-Hour Black Bean Soup with Cashew-Lime Sour Cream

The 8-Hour Black Bean Soup with Cashew-Lime Sour Cream

A few years ago, I made something called the 8-minute black bean soup and it was a big hit. I’m not sure anyone actually managed to make it in 8 minutes (I think the best I heard was about 12 minutes), but nevertheless it was super-fast to make because you simply dumped a can of beans into a pan with some spices and stuff and called it a day. For …

Cream of Wild Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup

The other night I was making a wild rice soup that I found in the Spring 2018 Forks Over Knives magazine, by Carla Christian. The recipe was great, but due to my inability to actually follow a recipe, I kept adapting one thing after another and ended up with something quite a bit different. I wanted to share the recipe here because it has become one of my favorite soups …

A Nice Cream and Oatmeal Superfood Breakfast Sundae!

By  •  Breakfast

Nice cream for breakfast! If you have been around the vegan world for any length of time, I’m sure you know that (n)ice cream is simply frozen bananas blended into a soft-serve consistency kind of like ice cream. WAY back in the day, I posted a tutorial on how to make banana ice cream, which has long been my website’s most popular recipe. People stop me in the street and …

Creamy Vegan Pasta Sauce with Lemon and Capers and Other Stuff

By  •  Main Dish

Most of the time when I’m developing a recipe, I have a goal in mind to create X or Y and I figure it out as I go along. But some of my favorite dishes have happened almost on accident as I start throwing together whatever I can find in the kitchen that sounds like it might go well together. This pasta sauce is definitely in that latter category. I …

Meaty Lentil & Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps

By  •  Main Dish

Lettuce wraps are amazing – they’re like tacos but healthier and fresher and you don’t feel so bad about eating 14 of them at once… I actually got the inspiration for this recipe by flipping through Sam Turnbull’s new cookbook. I thought it would be fun to remix her Oh Mommy Umami Lettuce Wraps. It you don’t know Sam from her blog, It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken, you might remember …

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

By  •  Breakfast

I held out as long as I could, but I had to sneak in one pumpkin recipe before the end of the season! I love overnight oats, they’re easy to make and so convenient on a busy morning: just grab the jar from the fridge and dig in. Last year I made pecan pie overnight oats and they were a big success, so I thought I’d do something similar for …

Portobello “Roast Beef” Sandwiches with Vegan Chipotle Mayo

By  •  Main Dish

Mushrooms are definitely my favorite meat substitute. Sliced very thin and sautéed with a little soy sauce and garlic, they’re melt-in-your-mouth soft and bursting with amazing umami flavors. I’ve used that same process in many, many recipes, but today I want to take it a step further to make slices of “roast beef.” By using portobello mushrooms, we can make large, thin slices that fold perfectly onto a sandwich for …

Quinoa Tabbouleh with Lentils and Olives

By  •  Main Dish

Tabbouleh is the Mediterranean dish of bulgur wheat with finely-chopped parsley, lemon juice, and often mint and tomatoes as well. Over the years, I’ve developed my own version of this dish with a base of quinoa instead of wheat, lots of parsley, and whatever else I have on hand. In fact, over 4 years ago, this quinoa tabbouleh was the second-ever recipe I posted on this blog. Just look at …
