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 […]

Southwest Stack


Pacing listlessly at the bottom of a deep drop in our recent creativity, Amy pulled this little marvel out of thin air: a layer of crispy baked, garlicky sweet potatoes, a layer of refried chili beans, a layer of taco chik’n, a layer of avocado and finely diced onions and tomatoes, all topped with salsa–the […]

Reykjavik Roundup: Days 20 – 23, 25 – 29, Homecoming!


Greetings, friends, from Southeast Michigan! We have returned triumphantly from our sojourn to Iceland. It’s been wonderful to see our cats, catch up with our friends, and settle back in to the quiet life in our house. Of course, we miss Reykjavik and especially all of our new friends. Hope you’re all well! So here’s […]

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 […]

A Week in the Life: Potatoes, Tomatoes, and Kale (oh my!)


You may recall, we had quite a tomato, potato, and kale crop this year. As promised, our adventures in eating our way through the last of our garden continue. We thought we’d take you through our last week, since used things up rotation style. So let’s recap: Night 1: Squash, Potato, & Broccoli Soup w/ […]

Homemade Soymilk II: Fun With Okara


Having slogged my way through those first two funky batches of soymilk, it was time to try again, this time using the proper measurements. It turns out that one SoyQuick cup = 1/2 actual cup. Of course! Does anyone else see this as a disaster waiting to happen? That being said, the first batch wasn’t […]

Dinner For Breakfast: Breakfast Burrito & Breakfast Pizza


So, everybody loves breakfast for dinner, right? Like when you were 8 and you got to have Fruity Pebbles ™ for dinner? Well, this is like that–but the opposite! It’s about taking regular dinner-y foods, and converting them into something palatable for breakfast. So, we’re not talking about firing up the grill at 7am and […]

Protein Assault!


The universe favors parsimony. Remember this. You exit through the turnstile as someone enters. The universe smiles. Ralph Nader weeps tears of joy. All is efficient, all is bright. Which is a fancy way of saying, I love to work with leftovers (as you’ve probably noticed). Tonight’s challenge: leftover beans (kidney and black) from that […]

Rainy Day Breakfast (Tofu Chili Scramble)


It’s a rainy sunday and we needed a scramble with an extra dose of heartiness. So, hot on the tail of my recent culinary upcycling kick, I whipped up a tofu scramble using our leftover chili and some wild rice from our wild rice and mushroom soup. If for some reason, you happen to have […]

Grab ‘n’ Growl


Growing up, I ate a lot of leftovers. My parents both worked two jobs so it was much more efficient to make a few big meals and then eat leftovers on off nights–especially since I could heat them up myself. Since you can’t always eke out a full meal from a single leftover, you often […]
