Cashew Cheese Risotto

Just so you  know, we’re not messing around with this risotto. I shudder to think what my vegan life would be like without cashew cheese. Obviously, the pure joy of the Creamy Macaroni with Cashew Cheese, would just not exist, as would the Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash and Cashew Cheese and the Pine nut and…

Lemon Garlic Orzo with Fresh Veggies {Gluten-Free}

This amazing dish will be ready in less than 30 minutes but will taste like you spent a good hour on it. I came across Viviana Foods gluten-free & vegan lemon garlic orzo and it looked pretty interesting, so I thought I’d give it shot. The orzo is ready in about 7 minutes and all…

Quinoa-Tempeh Veggie Wraps -- Epicurean Vegan

Quinoa-Tempeh Veggie Wraps

Who doesn’t love a good veggie wrap? These take very little time to prepare, so lunch or dinner will be ready in minutes. Not only is this a fast and tasty meal, but both quinoa and tempeh provide lots of protein, iron and fiber, not to mention some vitamin B2 and manganese, an antioxidant. These are downright…

Lemon-Pecan Waffles -- Epicurean Vegan - Copy

Lemon-Pecan Waffles

These are some hearty, no-joke waffles. You could certainly add a bit more milk to thin out the batter a little more to make a lighter, crispier waffle, but we enjoyed the muffin-like texture of the thicker ones. Either way, you won’t be disappointed with this lemony, nutty breakfast/brunch mainstay. INGREDIENTS: 3-1/2 C flour 2/3…

Marinated Field Roast Sandwiches with Cashew-Horseradish Sauce and Avocado -- Epicurean Vegan

Marinated Field Roast Sandwiches with Cashew-Horseradish Sauce and Avocado

When the Husband says, “Good God, woman, these are amazing,” I can’t help but grin smugly. As I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, I like Field Roast. I like their products because 1.) they taste delicious. And 2.) They aren’t made with strange ingredients. See for yourself. They really do make a healthy meat alternative…

Rigatoni with Garlic-Ricotta & Field Roast

Rigatoni with Garlic-Ricotta & Field Roast

Thanks to the previous lasagna meal, I had a few ingredients leftover and I needed a fast and easy dinner to throw together. I had some tofu ricotta left, as well as two Field Roast sausage links, so it worked out beautifully. I wanted to make the ricotta more of a sauce, so I added some…

Vegan Gluten-Free Lasagna

Vegan & Gluten-Free Lasagna

I’ve had some rice lasagna noodles sitting in the cupboard for quite a while, so I thought I’d finally give them a try. They are from Ener-G (which strangely, I couldn’t find on their website). I was really impressed with them. You can use your favorite ingredients, but I went with tofu ricotta, mushrooms, spinach and Field…

BBQ Cauliflower Salad

BBQ Cauliflower Salad

I never used to like cauliflower, mostly because I never really knew a tasty way to prepare it. Then, I discovered it makes great “chicken wings.” So why not “chicken wing” salad? This is salad is no joke. It’s also easier than you might think to make. The cauliflower takes very little time to prepare…

Vegan Carrot Cake Slice

The Forty-Year-Old Vegan

Nope not me. Thank goodness. I still have a few more years before I hit the little eff. The Husband, however, gets the honor of hitting this milestone first. He took it all in stride and even had a whiskey flight to lessen the blow. So for the big day, I asked him what he…
