VEGAN substitutions and converting recipes to vegan Virtually All meat is altered before it is eaten. The final product is "what it is" through texture, spices and usually a high contact of fat, which isn't good for you in any form.(see side note below) so using a "meat" replacement should not be that big of a deal. I of course haven't tried all the substitutes out there so there might be even better ones, since I found these. The ones I list here are the ones that I use in my recipes, and have fooled many a meat eater with them!

Raw Holiday Pecans The following is adapted from an article by Carissa Leventis-Cox of Mama in the Kitchen, and she ain’t cookin’! My cousin Ami served her father’s Christmas Garlic Pecans a few years ago, and they were delicious and addictive. I think I kept pestering her to make it since then because I never knew that pecans could taste so good. In the past few years, I have discovered other recipes for pecans. Here is a raw holiday pecan recipe spiced with cinnamon and rosemary. People never guess that this is a raw treat.
Grocery stores carry an array of great-tasting vegan options, including some items that you might not know are vegan. Many products, including fantastic faux franks; veggie burgers; chicken-free chicken patties; flavored soy, almond, and rice milks; nondairy ice creams; and other sensational snacks, are marketed to vegetarians and vegans. There's also an abundance of chips, dips, cookies, candies, frozen pies, soups, and other mouth-watering items by mainstream food manufacturers that are also vegan.

Creamy Baked Artichoke Dip The following article was written by Keegan Baur. Holiday parties are just around the corner, and we’re all gearing up to prepare—and eat—the delicious food that comes with them. In preparation, I’ve been looking for an artichoke dip recipe that doesn’t contain vegan mayonnaise. I finally found an interesting one in the cookbook Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan by Dreena Burton. However, much to my dismay, the recipe was chock-full of one of my least favorite ingredients: olives. (I wouldn’t touch an olive with a 10-foot pole, even if you dared me.)

It's finally October! The weather has been really nice around here lately. As I walk through my neighborhood, I sense the smell of homemade pies and treats. Oh autumn, thou dost not know how much I love thee! Aside from enjoying the beginning of the fall season, I recently dove into the vegan scene. Surprisingly, vegan food is unbelievably flavorful!

It's been a while since I grilled up a vegan breakfast sandwich and my fall inspired mood was the perfect excuse to create a new recipe! My Jack-o-Pumpkin Breakfast Sandwich is stacked tall with savory sweet flavors throughout. Sweet maple pumpkin butter is slathered on each grilled whole wheat English muffin. A thick patty of vegan breakfast sausage is grilled with an accent of black pepper and olive oil. Some earthy grilled mushrooms are piled on top of the oozing vegan Monterey Jack cheese.

Ode to Lentils…and a “Bread” Invention September 25, 2011 at 5:11 pm The first time I had lentils was at my best friend Holly’s house in middle school (taking me back a couple years!). That’s the same house where I discovered my love for Persian food…oh wow, so good! My favorite dish her mom made was Adas Polo (rice, lentils, currants/raisins, spices and sometimes meat – chicken, ground lamb or beef)…I remember the taste to this day! I’ve never tried to make my own version of Adas Polo (thinking I could never come close to hers) but I have experimented with lentils in the last several years, particularly the past couple months. For those that are unfamiliar with lentils, they are grouped with beans and peas as part of the legume family because they grow in pods.
When I was in grad school, one of my classmates who was in her mid thirties became a good friend of mine. She had told me once - "When you walk in to a room to do something and totally forget what it was when you get to the room, that is a sign that you are in mid thirties". I, who was in mid twenties at that time had laughed at it. But it is so true. Yeasted Applesauce Whole Wheat Bread
