Reykjavik, Days 8-14: Quinoa Galore! and Southern Iceland


I hope Vegan MoFos average out. Our last MoFo, we posted almost every day. That makes up for the current dearth of posts, right? Right? Because we’ve been so caught up in everything, as well as outside our usual kitchen and food selection, most of our dishes have been really simple, and not necessarily worthy […]

French Bread Pizza


Years ago, long before the advent of a palatable vegan cheese, long enough ago that we still craved such substitutes ravenously, we stumbled upon Jo Stepaniak’s excellent french bread pizza recipe from her Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook (a revelation back in those days). Instead of a separate cheese and sauce, which never turned out very good, […]

Summer Harvest: Shells al Pomodoro, Tempeh & Kale Stew, Chili, Cucumber Salad


At long last! It’s finally tomato harvesting time! We got tons of lettuce, are still getting kale, and have been getting green beans and cucumbers for a few weeks now, but there’s something momentous about that first big batch of tomatoes. Something that says, “your garden has arrived.” Everything leads up to tomatoes; they’re the […]

From the Residency: (Mostly) Raw Kale Salad


As Mark mentioned I am currently at a residency at the Philadelphia Art Hotel, run by two amazing people, artists Krista Peel and Zak Starer. I am all set up in a the top floor of a row-house in the East Kensington neighborhood in a studio room adjacent to a kitchenette where, thankfully, I can once […]

Best Hot Weather Snack: Avocado and Grapefruit


I don’t know where I first came across this recipe (if you can call it that; it’s so simple), but grapefruit and avocado has been one of my favorite hot weather treats for a while now.  Chop a chilled ripe grapefruit and chilled avocado half (I like it when it’s still slightly firm) and mix […]

Homemade Soymilk! (with Soy Flowchart!)


So you probably know by now that we here at Irreverent Vegan aren’t down with the container action. We’ve made great inroads over the last few years toward ditching a lot of the packaging and buying more stuff fresh and/or in bulk. At this point, our worst offenders are probably soy/rice/almond milk/creamer and orange juice […]

Mod’ed Polenta with Lemon Asparagus and Chickpeas


A guest post by our pal Ryan!  Let’s hope he behaves himself…  😉 I wanted to call this Mod’ed Polenta with Lemon Asparagi and Chickplease but my hands were slapped, and I was told NO because it isn’t nice for folks searching for a delicious dish with asparagus and chickpeas. I could have told the […]

Perfect Chik’n Caesar Salad


It’s…(drum roll)…Chik’n Caesar Salad! But why? A friend was eating a chicken-y version at the bar the previous night It’s grilling season Seitan chik’n cutlets are like crack, except they probably won’t destroy your life It’s the salad that eats like a meal! Caesar Dressing juice of one lemon 2 tsp dijon mustard 1/2 cup […]

Wild Rice & Mushroom Soup and Paprika Cashew Chickpea Salad


Amy’s triumphant return from Budapest brought Grab ‘n’ Growl week to an end, as well as a large bag of authentic Hungarian paprika. Given these two fantastic new developments, it was time to cook it the hell down. We’d been searching for a good recipe for Wild Rice & Mushroom Soup for quite some time, […]

Raw Food Tuesday: Pesto Pasta & Rawsage


Amy decreed yesterday that today would be Raw Food Tuesday (stolen shamelessly from What the Hell Does a Vegan Eat Anyway), which probably means that we shouldn’t have had that Chik’n Club Sammich for lunch…we did, however blaze a new trail in raw food dinners. Well, a new trail for us: rawsage & pesto-laden zucchini-based […]
