Perfect Oven Fries - Your Vegan Mom The ability to pull a perfectly crisp and brown little wedge of potato from your oven is one of the primary skills of a successful adult. Do yours stick? Never quite crisp up? Brown unevenly? Let's work this out together. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. (All except first photo by Dorka.) Meatless Monday: Vegetarian Chili | Ezra Pound Cake If you’ve ever tried to make a vegetarian chili, you know how wrong this stuff can go. Some versions call for up to six cans of beans – a recipe for solitary confinement if there ever was one. Others taste like someone dumped a shaker of cumin into a pot of vegetable soup. They just don’t taste like chili. Chili needs to be spicy, meaty (even when there’s not any meat) and thick enough to hold a tortilla chip in place like the Sword in the Stone. Chili’s supposed to be fun. I’d pretty much given up on ever finding a meatless version that deserved to be called chili – until I stumbled across this recipe from Emeril Lagasse. Finally, a meatless chili that’s delicious and fun. Now, pass the Fritos.

Vegetable Lasagna Cupcakes How about a couple of cupcakes for dinner? I haven’t made lasagna in ages but after seeing the oh-so-cute Petite Lasagnas at Can You Stay For Dinner?, I just had to make a vegan version. Super easy to make using wonton wrappers, the mini lasagnas bake in about ten minutes or so. I didn’t bother to replace the meat in the sauce called for in the original recipe, I just went with vegetables – fresh shiitake mushrooms and baby zucchini from the farmers market. Once cool enough to handle, you can actually pick one up and eat it without a fork. I only wish the Daiya cheese was a little more melted (I would have left it in the oven for a bit longer but the tips of the wontons were getting to be pretty brown and I have a very touchy smoke detector). Vegetable Lasagna CupcakesMakes 12 24 wonton wrappers 1 cup pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce 1/4 cup of your favorite cheese To make the vegetable filling, heat a wok or sauté pan to hot. Next, make the tofu ricotta. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Spinach Tofu Patties - StumbleUpon I love vegetarian burgers because they're usually packed with lots of vegetables and other yummy ingredients, and there are so many ways to enjoy them - you can put them in between a bun and dress them up with your favourite toppings, but they are often just as good or even better on their own, without the bun! These patties definitely fit into the latter category. They are so flavourful that I preferred to just eat them with a fork rather than hiding them in a bun underneath other toppings. The patties themselves are actually made with tofu, but you would probably never guess just by looking at them (and you could probably serve these to a tofu-hater without them knowing either!) They are also filled with spinach and asian flavours like sesame oil and soy sauce. I decided to add some peanut butter to mine too, to go with a sort of asian peanut sauce theme. Spinach Tofu Patties Adapted from Joanne of Eats Well With Others, as seen on Marcus Samuelsson's Blog Makes enough for 4 patties.

Vegetable Miso Soup | This recipe takes the basic miso soup, which in our house comes in a one serving pouch and makes it more gourmet, homey, soul food. It is rich, healthy and does wonders when you starting to feel under the weather. Which means that it is perfect for the approaching fall, school and germs. You can make this vegetable soup two ways. The first one will take 15 minutes to make with cooking an prepping which is really good when you are sick, tired and want a meal NOW. The second will take longer but it is perfect when you are angry, exhausted but want a super meal to make your day. You will need: 2 cartons (about 8 cups) of vegetable stock, 5 garlic cloves, 4 inch piece of ginger (about 2 tbs minced), 3 lemongrass stalks, 1 jalapeno pepper and 6-7 cups of vegetables. What do I mean: Depending on your mood, time you have for chopping, or the hunger level of your family you can choose what is on your right or on your left. To start take the lemon grass, jalapeno, garlic and ginger and mince

How to Make Bagels: A Users Manual at While making bagels may seem challenging to home cooks, it's actually not as complicated as you might think. But before we get into the specific recipe and bagel-making process, let's explore a few urban myths: Do You Need a Special Type of Flour to Make Bagels? No. Is Barley Malt Syrup Essential to That Distinctive Bagel Taste? Yes and no. Barley malt syrup is available at most supermarkets, but if you can't find it, use brown rice syrup, honey, or agave. Can You Make Good Bagels in One Day? While not a difficult or labor-intensive process, bagel making is a two-day affair. The other reason for bagels' tight crumb is the fact that the dough is usually not given a first rise or fermentation, but is instead shaped immediately after it's mixed and then placed in a cool place such as a refrigerator or proofing box (anywhere that's about 40°F or colder) to slowly ferment overnight. Must True Bagels Be Boiled or Can They Be Steamed?

zucchini fritters Everyone’s got their superheroes; I’m sure when I was younger they were things like Super Grover and later, Jem but these days, they’re decidedly more humble: I admire the hell out of people who manage to put homemade meals on the table everyday, as this has never been my strong suit. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve spent the last year or so developing recipes for very specific things — a side dish, a salad, a tart — that don’t exactly add up to be a dinner, and that NYC makes it quite easy to order in whatever parts of your meal you haven’t made at home. I’m a terrible multitasker — really, no fan of it at all — and when I’m making brioche, I’m making brioche, and not brioche with a side of a pot of beans with something braising in the oven, no matter how much I wish I were. It also means that more often than not, I have a 4 p.m. panic as, whoops! someone will soon be hungry and I have no idea what’s for dinner and true to form, this happened last Tuesday.
