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. Hubby and I dined out a lot last week which isn’t ideal but it helped me to stock up on fodder for the “He eats, she eats” posts! My favorite method for being lazy in the kitchen is to cook with my crock pot. With the first day of Fall on the horizon, this recipe for a meatless Irish stew is one of those vegetarian recipes that is perfect for warming you up on a cool Autumn day. !

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?) 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 ¼ cup chopped fresh dill 1 tsp maple syrup Method: Now prepare the sandwiches… 1 tsp grainy mustard Back to the soup…

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.
