When I first talked about making this blog I wasn’t sure exactly what I would write about. I had been posting pictures of the food I was making on facebook and found I had a small following of people who were always interested in the newest “tasty creation”. My best friend suggested to me that instead of posting to facebook, I should post those pictures on a blog. What a great idea!
Here is a showcase of many of the foods I have made since I decided to go on this vegan adventure!
This I’ve already talked about, but here it is again: Eggplant Curry from “The Moosewood Cookbook”
Tomato Basil Bisque with Pumpernickel Croutons from “Chloe’s Kitchen”
Miso Meal! Miso Glazed Eggplant (Chloe’s Kitchen) and home made miso soup
Creamy Carrot Soup- “The Happy Herbivore” Made creamy by using rolled oats
Massaman Curry- A recipe found on recipes.com and altered to be vegan
Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage Butter- “Chloe’s Kitchen” Delicious! But such a pain to make. Rolling gnocchi is not easy!
Those who know me well (or read my last post), know I’m obsessed with macaroni and cheese. I spent many months trying to perfect the vegan version. Here are a few tries:
Easy Mac and Cheese– “The Happy Herbivore”
Baked Shells and Cheese- “The Happy Herbivore”
Vegan Mac N’ Cheese– Chef Chloe This one was definitely my favorite, once I perfected it! The trick is to use unsweetened almond milk. For whatever reason soy milk just doesn’t work for the way I like it.
Spinach Fritatta and Herbed Home Fries- “The Happy Herbivore”
Green Goblin Muffins– These were made for Saint Patrick’s Day!
Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins- “The Happy Herbivore” I was on a muffin kick for a while and these were probably my favorite
Black Bean Brownie– These brownies were so good! They actually tasted better after they sat for a day or so
Carrot Cake Pancakes- “Everyday Happy Herbivore” My pancakes usually come out horrible, but these look pretty. I just wish the carrots were cooked more!
Fettucine Alfredo- “Chloe’s Kitchen” Alfredo sauce made using almonds, garlic, and onion. This was ridiculously good!
Sweet and Sour Tempeh- “Everyday Happy Herbivore”
Spicy Mushroom Stir Fry- “Everyday Happy Herbivore”
Spicy Mustard Chickpeas- “Happy Herbivore Abroad” This is my latest obsession. Spicy chickpeas!!!
Mongolian BBQ Seitan- “Chloe’s Kitchen” I had never made/heard of seitan before. I plan to make and post more about it!
Mexican Chorizo- “The Happy Herbivore” This chorizo is made using quinoa and a variety of spices to give it a sausage like flavor
BBQ Tofu Pineapple Pizza- “Chloe’s Kitchen” There has never been a time where I ate a ton of pizza and didn’t feel disgusting. That is, until I ate this pizza. Filling but not greasy. Tons of flavor! I like it better than regular cheese pizza!
Tempeh Picatta- “Chloe’s Kitchen” I taught one of my friends how to cook with tempeh and this is what we made
Hawaiian Teriyaki Chickpeas- “The Happy Herbivore”
Deviled Eggs– One of my favorite things to eat at holiday get togethers is deviled eggs. I was so excited when I found this vegan version! They taste really good, and obviously not exactly the same but the flavor is quite similar
Thai Chickpea Burgers- “Chloe’s Kitchen”
Double Decker Chickpea Tacos– Refried black beans were used to hold the hard shell and soft shell together. This is one of my favorite meals to make for non-vegans. I haven’t had one person tell me they don’t like them!
Carrot Cake Cupcakes– These were just amazing!
Strawberry Cupcakes- “The Happy Herbivore” These remind me a little of strawberry shortcake. There is a hint of lemon in the cake part!
Mint Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cupcakes- “Chloe’s Vegan Desserts” I made these for my mom on Mother’s day. They were a hit!
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie- “The Happy Herbivore” This was my first attempt at cooking with applesauce. They didn’t come out too terrible! I thought they tasted very good and were very moist. Might not be good for someone who likes a crunchier cookie.
Cinnamon-Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookie- “Chloe’s Kitchen” My best friend went absolutely nuts for these cookies! I’m still not sure how I feel about them. They don’t look anything like they do in the book, but they taste good!
That’s it for now! Stay tuned, as I will be posting more food as I try new recipes! Have any questions/comments about what I’ve written about here? Post in the comments below. See you next time!
