So when you’re done listening to summer jams and hanging out at the beach, round up the last of this season’s zucchini and make these vegan crab cakes. They are awesome. As much as I love spending long hours by the Long Island Sound, seeing all the people fishing on piers every day seriously bums me out.

This baked dish goes for cooked meat in sauce, layered and topped with mashed potatoes which is simply topped again with bread crumbs or else with cheese. This dish is a simple version of Cottage pie or shepherd's pie of French cuisine. Thanksgiving recipes Thanksgiving is my favorite food holiday, full of rich flavors and bright colors. I always have my basics like Whole Grain Stuffing with Pecans and Currants, or Mashed Potatoes, but I like to change around the rest of the menu every year. Cranberry Orange Biscotti (recipe by Isa Chandra Moskowitz) is a great introduction to the evening for my guests. Chestnut Soup, usually a Christmas favorite, is creamy without added fat. Cauliflower Bechamel is my go to sauce for everything, and tastes great with Delicata Squash Boats.
Fully-loaded vegetable pot pie [Vegan, Gluten-Free] Now that the days are chilly and nights are downright frosty, it's a great comfort to make a piping hot meal that warms you from the inside out. This pot pie is a delicious dish for chilly fall and winter evenings. A crispy crust lines the top of a pot filled with fragrant, hot and thick vegetable stew. It is simple and quick to make, entirely vegan, and customizable with your favorite veggies! Gluten-free flour works great for this thin crust, and vegan butter, such as Earth Balance, gives it the same buttery flavor as favorite non-vegan dough recipes.

Devilish Potatoes March 20, 2013 Devilish Potatoes by IsaChandra Makes 20 hors d’oeuvres Total time: 1 1/2 hours || Active time: 20 minutes Meet The Shannons: The Betty Crocker Project : Corned Beef-less Tips & Cabbage I recently decided to never watch the movie Short Circuit ever again. I'll give you all a moment to recover. Now before you all assume that I was afraid of the sentient robot who was originally built to be the ultimate weapon... that's not it. It's because I love this movie and I'm afraid it might not live up to my very kind memories.
Lebanese Lentil Salad with Garlic, Cumin, Mint, and Parsley I love lentils, and this Lebanese Lentil Salad with Garlic, Cumin, Mint, and Parsley has some of my favorite flavors! And this tasty lentil salad is low-glycemic, vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free, and could be South Beach Diet friendly with portion control. Use the Recipes-by-Diet-Type Index to find more recipes like this one. I'm still experimenting with new ideas for Carb-Conscious Thanksgiving Recipes, but you can't eat Thanksgiving side dishes every day even if you're blogging about them, and this Lebanese Lentil Salad with Garlic, Cumin, Mint, and Parsley is something I'd happily eat all year round. I served this as a side dish with the Pan-Fried and Roasted Pork Chops with Apricot-Mustard Sauce, and I think it would also make a great take-to-work lunch salad. I used green lentils for this, but if you only have brown lentils I think they would also work well.
Homemade Graham Crackers I finally made homemade graham crackers for the first time and LOVED them. I may never buy the commercial ones again--okay, well, maybe for using the crumbs to make a crust or something, but I just may have to try a crust using homemade sometime, too! I just don't like how everything you buy has hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup and all the other stuff we can't even pronounce. I ran across these homemade graham crackers, actually when Maria at Two Peas and Their Pod (how cute and talented is she!) posted them back in November of last year.
Dublin Coddle with Vegan Irish Sausage Finding something different to make for St. Patrick’s Day isn’t easy when you’ve never been to Ireland and have no idea how authentic any of the dishes that we Americans think of as Irish actually are. I set out looking for something different from the Corned “Beef” and Cabbage I’d made last year, something that hadn’t already been made vegan a dozen times before like Colcannon, and finally settled on Bangers and Mash, a favorite in Irish pubs in the United States. And then I saw this: “An Irish Sausage is not a Banger.” According to this Irishman, sausages are called bangers in England, but not in Ireland (though I wonder if in these multicultural times the term hasn’t been adopted in at least some parts of Ireland). So, it turns out that Bangers and Mash is not an Irish dish, and I really, really wanted an authentic Irish dish for the occasion.
Recipe from FatFree Vegan Kitchen This easy curry dish is like a vegan palak paneer, with chickpeas instead of paneer and kale instead of spinach. It’s a delicious and quick meal for two. There’s nothing like being left alone for the weekend to make someone who “loves to cook” lose all desire to operate a stove. My husband and daughter ran off to New Orleans this past weekend, and though you’d think I would seize the opportunity to cook dishes that I like that they don’t, the ugly reality is that my diet deteriorated into sandwiches and reheated leftovers. Cooking without someone to cook for just isn’t my thing; besides, with my clean-up crew away on vacation, I knew that anything I cooked I’d also have to clean up.
Caveman Crunch Bars I have had lots of people asking me for alternatives to crappy grain ridden granola bars and they want them small and easy to take along, well this is what I came up with and boy are they addicting. There are an endless amount of possibilities with these so feel free to play around and come up with your own creations. Don’t forget to come by and tell me what you come up with or how much you love them. Enjoy Caveman Crunch Bars Vegan Poutine March 6, 2013 Poutine is a Canadian favorite made of french fries, beef gravy, and cheese. It’s one of the few things that I could never have “just one bite” of and a treat that I really missed as a vegan. Luckily, this dish was very easy to veganize. I also made it healthy-ish.
