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.) Not-so-Dumb Salad Recipe with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Onions, Avocado, and Balsamic Vinegar There are a lot of salads with tomatoes and cucumbers on this blog. That's partly because I love tomatoes and cucumbers and grow them in my garden every year. To me that combination just screams summer, but I also eat tomatoes and cucumbers all year (whenever I can get good flavorful tomatoes and Persian cucumbers from Costco.) So when a reader from Hawaii named Lisa sent me her recipe for "dumb salad" and said it was something she made often, I was interested. Lisa invited me to change it up a bit, but really I didn't change it much except to sub diagonally-sliced green onions for the sweet onions she used. I used my first garden cucumber (on the right) which I combined with two Persian cucumbers. Not many tomatoes yet around here, so I used these sweet Cherubs tomatoes from Costco. I cut the green onion in diagonal slices to make about 1/4 cup, but more would be okay too. You need one perfectly ripe avocado, diced into smallish pieces. Instructions: South Beach Suggestions:
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.

Jalapeno Hummus Ravioli I have been experimenting with hummus a lot lately while serving as the Sabra Brand Ambassador on MixingBowl.com and decided to try a Hummus Ravioli recipe they shared on their Facebook Page. I spent a bit of time debating about which hummus flavor to use: lemon, roasted red pepper etc. and decided to go spicy with the jalapeno flavor. I was not sure how this would taste but imagined it could be fun and boy was I right. I honestly thought it tasted like a jalapeno popper. This is a really quick recipe and would really impress guests. Which flavor of Sabra Hummus do you think would taste great in the ravioli? Ingredients (4 servings/3pcs. per person): 12 wonton wrappers 4 Tablespoons jalapeno Hummus 2 Tablespoons olive oil Directions: 1.

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.
