Super Simple Slow Cooker Tempeh Mushroom Stroganoff

noFeatured

This Tempeh Mushroom Stroganoff is amazingly easy and full of great flavors. It has few ingredients, but the mushrooms combined with the bouillon create an amazing broth that becomes the base of the sauce. I don’t use tempeh as much as I should. It’s a fermented soy product that’s originally from Indonesia. Most people agree that […]

Easiest Chocolate Mousse Ever!

noFeatured

I’ve been meatless for so long that sometimes I forget to mention some of the simple things. This recipe is one of those. I made this last night for my sweetie and remembered just how much I love this stuff! If you’ve already made a silken tofu mousse before, then you can move along. There’s […]

Tipsy Mint-Kahlua Cocoa (From Your Slow Cooker!)

kahlua-mint-hot-chocolate

I had The Market‘s Mint White Russian the other night. (It was one of two creamy vegan drinks on their menu!) They used homemade Kahlua and mint infused vodka. If you live in the triangle you must give them a try. I was hesitant about the coffee mint combo but I was won over. It was so good […]

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 […]

Slow Cooker Spicy Southern Chickpeas and Grits

noFeatured

For those of you not familiar with Southern food this is my (vegan) version of Shrimp and Grits. Traditionally it’s base is a spicy tomato based sauce with bell peppers. I’ve used chickpeas because they don’t break down as much as pinto beans or the like. Of course there’s bacon in the original version, and doubly of course I […]

Winter CSA: Slow Cooker Asian Corn Cabbage Soup

noFeatured

Winter CSAs are definitely an adventure. It’s an all you can eat wonderland of kale, chard, bok choy, cabbage, tatsoi, collards and even more healthy green veggies. Of course beets, lettuce, carrots, and even cauliflower are peppered into the mix too. We didn’t get a CSA the week we got back from vacation, so I innocently bought a […]

Butternut Squash Frijoles and a Goodie Bag Giveaway!

I have some housekeeping to get done before the end of the year. What’s weird is that it’s good for all you readers! I am backed up on reviews and giveaways so I will be posting more the next month and will have giveaways all the way up through the holidays. Today’s giveaway is one […]

Vegan Red Beans and Rice for 2

red beans and sausage

You’ve probably noticed that I’m trying to come up with more savory recipes for the 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cookers. I live in a two person household with a slew of wonderful (and demanding) companion animals. I know I’m not the only one without a large family. By making a smaller amount for […]

Vegan Autumn Lentil Soup

autumnLentils

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 […]

Vegan Sin-cinnati Chili for Your Halloween Dinner

sin-chili

Since I taunted you with Halloween yesterday I thought I’d give you something to make for your Halloween dinner party. Cincinnati chili is similar to a regular meaty chili except it has unusual spices that you see more in pumpkin pie than an all-American stew. Traditionally it’s a meat chili that has kidney beans as an optional topping […]
