Designer Imposters #2: Soba/Udon Salad


One of the unexpected culinary delights in our recent Southwest Road Trip was Salt Lake City. Not only was it beautiful, friendly, and relatively inexpensive, it boasted not one but two all-vegan restaurants! All vegan. The first one we visited upon arriving was Sage’s Cafe, somewhat upscale and very cozy. The menu was very manageable–more than enough to […]

CSA Summer Cookdown #3: Thai Cucumber Salad


Even without the large batch of cucumbers we got from the CSA share, we’ve been up to our eyeballs in them, thanks to the same friends who kindly donated their CSA share. We trade for zucchini for these on occasion–Zukes for Cukes, as Christine calls it. After foisting as many of these onto our other […]

CSA Summer Cookdown #2: Collard Greens & Everlasting Spinach


After the other night’s CSA-driven feast of Eggplant Parmesan, green beans, and cucumber salad, we decided to use up our copious cache of onions on a French Onion Soup. We’d received two large batches of greens–one batch of everlasting spinach, which isn’t actually spinach at all, but rather a form of beet green (perpetual beet), […]

CSA Summer Cookdown


Some excellent friends recently entrusted their cats feeding/watering/nuzzling to us for a week while they’re on vacation. Since they wouldn’t be around to use it, they kindly left us their CSA share as well. For folks who don’t know, a CSA–Community Supported Agriculture–is a program offered by local farms to essentially sell folks a share […]

Summer Scapes


Garlic scapes, that is. Never heard of ’em? We hadn’t either until Amy recently stumbled upon them in a blog post (which we cannot, for the life of us, locate–thank you anonymous vegan blog–you are a true unsung hero). Garlic scapes (the long curly green stalks in the picture above) are the young stems from […]

Cole Slaws, Spicy & Sweet


Since our week of raw, we’ve been trying to incorporate something raw into almost every dinner.  While we love standard lettuce salads, we need a bit of a break from them.  We also  love the middle eastern cabbage salad we’ve been eating with our raw falafel.  I was hesitating to make a standard American cole […]

Week of Raw Days 6 & 7: Taco Salad, Taco Night


After our awesome meal on Friday, and then awesome leftovers on Saturday, we finally started to settle into our raw diet. Things felt more easy-going and we started looking forward to dinner again. We’re huge fans of Mexican food and we’re huge fans of re-using meal ingredients creatively, so on Sunday, we thought we’d try […]

Week of Raw Day 4: Falafel and Cashew Ice Cream


Victory at last! After a few days of good-but-not-great raw food, we have finally achieved greatness. After days of planning and preparation, the raw falafel we’ve been working on were finally done–and were delicious. We’ve been struggling for years now with homemade falafel–in any form and any way of cooking. We’ve never found just the […]

Easy Kale Salad


I fell in love with this salad as soon as I saw it.  I’ve made a few changes to the simple recipe and so am reposting it here for you. Easy Kale Salad one bunch of kale, chopped the juice of one lemon the juice of one orange (optional) one avocado, chopped one apple, chopped […]

Green Thai Curry


Once upon a time I had a peek into the beautiful mind of Thai cooking. It was fleeting, but powerful, and is a place I keep trying to return to. Just the other week, we made a pretty tasty Massaman curry. We had a hankerin’ for something similar, but not quite the same. Since we’re […]
