Vegan recipes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Vegan blackbean burgers, from Isa Does It, Hachette Australia. If you haven't heard of the Post Punk Kitchen, well, you're probably not a vegan. It began when a couple of friends from New York City's punk scene - Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero, filmed six vegan cooking videos in 2003 and posted them online. Perhaps reflecting the scarcity of information available for vegans at the time, the site attracted an eager audience and soon the Post Punk Kitchen's message board was brimming. These days, Post Punk Kitchen has evolved into a much more professional-looking site, with monthly recipe blogs and a shop. Between them Chandra Moskowitz and Romero have published eight books including Vegan Pie in the Sky, Vegan Vengeance and Appetite for Reduction.

The latest, Isa Does It, focuses on dinners and desserts suitable for weeknight cooking. PPK's Facebook page has nearly 90,000 likes and some of PPK's forum threads attract over 100,000 interactions.

I would have to agree…when it comes to certain things. Like limes. We were unloading groceries the other day when he came across a huge stash of limes buried deep in the crisper. "Why on earth are you hoarding limes? " he asked holding up this huge bag of limes as evidence. I looked over, puzzled yet guilty at the same time, watching as he tried to insert new produce into the crisper like a Tetris game. There was no way he was going to win this round. "No wonder why I can’t fit any produce in here…” the bag of limes dropped on the counter with a thud.

It was rather amusing. Do you think I could remember why I thought it was a good idea to buy a mammoth bag of limes? So now I have some limes on my hands, it seems. Strawberry lime granita sounds like even more fun than annoying Eric, mind you, but as it turns out I can do both at the same time.

Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Oil-Free Walnut Chip Brownies. My gluten-free and vegan baking adventures continue! [See post 1 here] This time, I’m using a gluten-free flour called Teff Flour. Have you heard of Teff flour before? [Source] I hadn’t until I looked through the Clean Start and Clean Food Cookbooks. The Teff grain is incredibly small too, measuring about 1/32 of an inch in diameter! Check out how tiny the Teff grain is! [Source] Because the grain is so small it is virtually impossible to hull the grain before grinding it into a flour.

Vegan Quick & Easy Recipes. Vegan Mo-Fo, Post #2: Maple-Glazed Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas - Keepin' It Kind. The Chickpea surprised me with something really sweet the other day. I know I’m a little late to the roasted chickpea party. I don’t know what took me so long to get here or why I put it off for so long. I guess I didn’t think I’d like them? I thought I’d be put off by a crunchy chickpea?

So I ventured forward, and trying to stay as far away as I possible could from anything that might even remotely taste like Corn Nuts, I decided to go the sweet route.

Meet the three-ingredient Chocolate Decadence Candy – a dark chocolate lover’s ultimate delight! Making these is so easy that calling the guidelines a ‘recipe’ feels kind of like a stretch.

Vegan Stuffed Rice Balls - Classic Italian Dish, Reinvented! | Vegan Runner Eats. Did everyone have fun this Thanksgiving? We sure did! This was our first Thanksgiving since going vegan. As if this wasn’t challenging enough, we also traveled to our friends’ house in Panama City Beach, Fla. What was the challenge, you might ask? Well, I had to make sure my husband and I had plenty of vegan food choices at the overall non-vegan Thanksgiving table our friends were planning to have.

To make that happen, I spent the entire afternoon on Wednesday cooking one vegan dish after another, and then packing the entire spread to travel. Did we end up having enough vegan food? Clockwise from top left: sautéed kale, stuffed rice balls (today’s recipe!) Here’s where things get interesting. The family recipe that my mother-in-law uses calls for Carolina long-grain rice, meat or mozzarella cheese stuffing (meat gets mixed with pasta sauce), butter for making the rice sticky, and an egg wash for dipping the assembled balls prior to rolling them in bread crumbs.

Ingredients For the Rice: Untitled. Lately I've been working to eat a little healthier. One thing I'm doing is trying to avoid dairy and refined sugar during the weekdays. It's been a great change because I save any sugary (or creamy) treats I'm craving for the weekends and focus on filling my days with vegetables, fruits and other good stuff. But, I do have a sweet tooth (to say the least). So finding some kind of weekday treat was key to this change. I love that you can easily customize this basic recipe to feel like soft serve frozen yogurt or a firmer ice cream depending on how long you freeze the mixture. Here are the combinations I've been enjoying the most lately. Strawberry Poppyseed: 3 frozen bananas (sliced before freezing), 5-6 frozen strawberries, and 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds. Chocolate Peanut Butter: 3 frozen bananas (sliced before freezing), 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons cocoa. Mango: 3 frozen bananas (sliced before freezing) and 2 frozen mangos (peeled and cubed).
