Slow Cooker Indian Spiced Chickpea Quinoa Stew

noFeatured

As promised, here is the ridiculously easy and tasty stew I mentioned over the weekend. I seem to be on a streak of ugly but packed-full of flavor recipes this month. I guess the veggies that are available in January aren’t quite as flashy as some of the summer ones. That, and well, stews aren’t […]

Vegan Holiday Kitchen by Nava Atlas is Amazing!

First I have to disclose that I’ve been a fan of Nava Atlas since her first cookbook. I met Susan Voisin of fatfreevegan.com at Vida Vegan in August and she did all the beautiful photography for Vegan Holiday Kitchen. Her photos are amazing! A few months ago Nava let me know that she was doing a […]

I’m so excited that so many of you have already bought my book and that it’s still the most wished for vegetarian book on amazon! (Pictured above is the book on my iPad. The photos look awesome on it.) One of the things I would like this Holiday season is that people who can’t afford […]

Vegan Autumn Lentil Soup

This soup started with the gorgeous lentils above. I found them in a bulk bin at Whole Foods and fell in love. I knew that the red lentils wouldn’t stay red, but I had decided that the mixture would still look like autumn leaves after being cooked. Wrong! I also added these beautiful purple potatoes […]

I’m so excited! My book, The Vegan Slow Cooker, was released early and many people who pre-ordered at Amazon will get theirs this week! This soup was pretty much an accident. I had no intention of adding pumpkin to my new chick’n chowder. However, I freeze my puréed pumpkin in ice cubes just like I […]

A quick note from your friend, Steel Cut Oats: I know it’s summer, but I’m really starting to miss you. We both know that your Doctor thinks we’re a good team.  It’s about time for this little break to end. So, as soon as you can, try this creamy, lemony oatmeal with a little ginger […]

Another Peek Inside The Vegan Slow Cooker – Steamy Stews and Curries

noFeatured

Here’s another teaser from The Vegan Slow Cooker. It comes out October 1. Stews are the perfect way to start using your slow cooker while you are away at work. They need the least attention and shouldn’t over cook if you come home a little late. However, if you are going to be very late or […]

I found some organic cherries hiding in the back of my fridge when I was cleaning the other day. I also had some Gardein Beefless Tips in the freezer. I thought why the heck not, and set out on one of my experiments. This was a very tasty one! I know some people don’t like […]

Slow Cooker Pineapple Chick’n

It’s been awhile since I’ve dived whole-heartedly into the slow cooker to make an almost complete dinner. This recipe does require you to cook some rice, but I use my rice cooker, so I can still catch up on writing while the dinner finishes cooking itself. The catalyst for this one was a sad pineapple […]
