Creamy Turnip Soup

Contrary to popular belief, June is not a great time to visit the beaches of Southern California. If you head out bright and early in the morning to get a good spot on the sand, you'll probably find it looking something like this: The marine layer causes the formation of these clouds, bringing fog, mist… Continue reading Creamy Turnip Soup

Almond Crusted Potatoes with Lemon-Dill Aioli… and a vegan president?

I love carbs, especially starchy, potatoey ones. I can eat them anytime, all the time. 🙂 So with potatoes, like pasta, even though they taste the best to me in their pure, unadulterated forms, I occasionally try to come up with ways to make me eat fewer of them at once. I wanted to make… Continue reading Almond Crusted Potatoes with Lemon-Dill Aioli… and a vegan president?

Spring Lentil Salad

One thing that I love about spring is the freshness everywhere. Actually, that's the thing that I miss most about living in an area with real seasons ~ that one day when the snow is starting to melt and the sun is out and you just know that spring is almost here. In California, we don't… Continue reading Spring Lentil Salad

Mini Vegan Shepherd’s Pies

Do you remember what you used to eat as a child? I remember a few things, but there are great big blank spaces. I remember sitting down for dinner with my family, but I have very few specific recollections. I do remember not liking a lot of things though. There was meatloaf (yuck), and there… Continue reading Mini Vegan Shepherd’s Pies

Simple Made Delicious: Seasoned Brown Rice

It's funny, I often go back and forth on the kinds of recipes to post. Sometimes I think it's all about things that are striking and fancy, things that will catch people's attention and make them think "Wow, I want to make that!".  And sometimes I think that more practical recipes are the way to… Continue reading Simple Made Delicious: Seasoned Brown Rice

Cheesy Butternut Kitchari

This was one of those spur of the moment recipes ~ I wanted the ease and comfort of a bowl of kitchari, but wanted to change up the flavors a bit. Since it's fall and everything tastes better with nutritional yeast (except those boxed vegan mac & cheeses that only taste like nooch), I married… Continue reading Cheesy Butternut Kitchari

Cauliflower Velvet Soup with Vegan Smoked Gouda

While I was in Utah last week, I had the great experience of making Somer's famous vegan cheese.We had such fun that I was determined to make more once I got back... thus came the incredible vegan Smoked Gouda. This, my friends, is the bomb. So today I needed something equally fabulous to pair it… Continue reading Cauliflower Velvet Soup with Vegan Smoked Gouda

Pasta with Tahini Ginger Sauce & Spicy Marinated Greens ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

So this is my third pasta post in the just over half of Vegan MOFO... maybe that should have been my theme 🙂 .  I promise I'll be back with more desserts and other exciting things soon! But I've been trying to add lots and lots more greens into my diet lately. I've got Vitamix… Continue reading Pasta with Tahini Ginger Sauce & Spicy Marinated Greens ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

Pasta with Brussels Sprouts in Chickpea Tomato Sauce ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

Hi, my name is Kelli and I'm a pasta addict.... Ok, you all, admit it -- I'm not the only one out there! With some things, portion sizes don't exist ~ and often pasta is one of them.  And we can resort to some creative tactics to cover our tracks.... like covering it up with… Continue reading Pasta with Brussels Sprouts in Chickpea Tomato Sauce ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

Vegan Mac and Cheese with Tempeh Bacon, Scallions & Tomatoes ~ Vegan MOFO 2013

One of my all time favorite things to eat is macaroni and cheese. What is there to not like, after all? Lots of carbs with cheesy sauce holding it all together, yum. And it was even one of the first things I learned how to make as a child - yep, the neon orange stuff… Continue reading Vegan Mac and Cheese with Tempeh Bacon, Scallions & Tomatoes ~ Vegan MOFO 2013
