Vegan Sesame Chicken Wonton Soup & Saying ‘Good Bye’ to Mr. Spock

Today’s post is long. So very very long. I wanted to post this recipe for Chinese New Year. This recipe really is a very special soup we made using Upton’s Naturals NEW chicken seitan product (that is hitting stores this week) and I was eager to share it. It’s literally been rusting away in my notebook…

The Procrastinator’s Guide to a Vegan Thanksgiving

So today is my first day with my repaired laptop. I have my photos back and the ability to edit photos. You could say we have our blog back (it’s OK to say that)… just in time for one of the USA’s most beloved food tradition: Thanksgiving!  Some of us (me) might have fallen behind…

The Fakesgiving Feast Dogs

So I’ve been buried the past week in trying to fix all the little bugs with the new layout. Yes the menu is still wonky and there are a handful of duplicate past posts with crazy margins and fonts… but we’re getting there. I’ve also tried to re-enter the world the world again in way…

Soup au Pistou & The Honeysuckle Soap Contest

*This Contest is Closed* So let’s get this out of the way – you are probably wondering where the squirrels are that I hinted at yesterday. Well this morning as I was laying in bed this was the post I had to share and thus it is the one I am writing and this is…

Seitan Stuffed Cabbage Dumpling Soup

I need to post about how we spent our weekend doing a cooking demo at The Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary July Jamboree. We have such great photos of the animals and people like Woodstock’s fabulous Jenny Brown and Gretchen Primack, author of Kind Poems. It’s coming I promise but instead I had this thing happen this…

Sesame & Soy Marinated Mushroom “Steaks”

Personally I always get a little annoyed when a restaurant calls a Portobella mushroom cap a “steak.” I can’t explain it. I just do. I think it has something to do with the fact that I am constantly trying to think of ways to invite more people to try vegan foods and am frustrated when they encounter stereotypical vegan fare…

Vegano Pozole Verde

Today is the first day of Spring. Here in Brooklyn there is still snow on the ground and I’m wearing a sweater. As someone who is a avid admirer of soups and chowders… this is a great excuse to break out the slow cooker and make a recipe I’ve been wanting to make since we…
