Recipe: Slow Cooker Vegetarian Irish Stew Vegetarian Irish Stew I can’t believe how busy I’ve been lately. A huge work project came to fruition–finally!–so I’m hoping the craziness will calm down a bit. One of the things I hate about being so busy–aside from the lack of blogging time–is that I tend to get lazy in the kitchen. My favorite method for being lazy in the kitchen is to cook with my crock pot.

Recipe: Sweet-Hot Vegan Pumpkin Soup Sweet-Hot Vegan Pumpkin Soup If you like your pumpkin with punch, then have I got a crock-pot soup for you! This is a recipe I found in a non-vegetarian crockpot book and featured on my former blog back in 2007 . The pumpkin soup is tasty enough to re-feature here. The slow cooker recipe was easy to veganize–I replaced the chicken broth with vegetable broth, and the three tablespoons honey became three tablespoons agave nectar. I thought this vegan soup was delicious! The soup cooked all day (nine hours) in the crock pot without crusting up the sides, and produced extra servings for leftovers. The Sweet-Hot Vegan Pumpkin Soup has found a home in my collection of crock pot recipes. Slow Cooker Sweet-Hot Vegan Pumpkin Soup

In order to make things easy, I would cut a little X into the bottom of each tomato and blanch them in boiling water, transfer them to an ice bath and then the skin will just pull right off. The filling possibilities are endless! Baci!

Tomato and Sweet Pepper Bisque and Grilled Daiya Sandwich « The Vegan Project I’ve been going through a lot of changes over the past couple of weeks and am finding these last few months of winter exhausting. While I was working over at Jessica’s place this morning, I felt myself in dire need of some comfort – a warm hug from mom at just the right moment. Unfortunately, my mom didn’t happen to be standing outside the door with open arms (but wouldn’t that have been cosmic if she had?) so I jumped in the kitchen and started to prepare the next best thing: tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. With a few tweaks to accommodate our now more refined (and vegan) palettes, I created a fresh tomato and sweet pepper bisque and a grilled Daiya sandwich that was reminiscent of a simpler time in our lives. Ingredients: 2 tbsp olive oil 2 small yellow onions, chopped 8 roma tomatoes, roughly chopped ($5.68 got 8 gorgeous roma tomatoes on sale at Choices) 2 cloves of garlic, minced 1 bay leaf 1 bouillon cube ½ tsp cayenne 4 small, sweet red mini peppers, chopped 4 cups water Method:

A Different Way to Serve Fresh Watermelon. Watermelon ?Cake? I saw this watermelon cake idea in the August issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine. This is a cute, fun, unique way to serve fresh watermelon. And I’m not the only one who excitedly tried this; checkout ‘messy thrilling life’ blog who also tried Martha Stewart Living Magazine watermelon cake. Thankyou Martha! Martha Stewart Living Magazine serves the watermelon cake plain, thats what I’ve done too. But if you want to jazz it up, here are some suggestions: - sprinkle a little lime juice or lime zest on top - top with chopped basil or mint - sprinkle some feta cheeseand balsamic vinegar over the watermelon “cake” - drizzle a little tequila or rum or cachaca Wash and wipe a seedless watermelon. Lay it down horizontally. Cut about one thirds from the other end. Lay the middle third (the watermelon ”cake”) on a serving platter. Now take the two ends of the water melon. Now arrange these balls on top of the water melon ‘”cake”. Comments comments Tagged as: watermelon

Vegan Creamy Vegetable Gratin Chop the broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Steam them for 5 minutes. If you;re using frozen or precooked vegetables, don't steam them. While the veggies are steaming, chop the onion and garlic finely and cook in the margarine or oil over medium heat. When the onion is translucent (do not brown), add the two tbsp of flour and whisk for 2 minutes until the flour is cooked. Meanwhile, start chopping the herbs and add them to the sauce along with the celery. Put the vegetables in the baking dish, pour the sauce and mix well. Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 or until the top is brown and serve. Serves 5 people. A great variation is to serve this over pasta!!!
