Breaded Tofu with a Creamy Spinach, Tomato and Bell Pepper Sauce

This recipe started out with me going through the refrigerator and trying to decide what I had and how they could go together. At the center: a close-to-expiring tub of tofu. Luckily, we had hit the farmer’s market yesterday, so I had plenty of veggies on hand. The flavors of the breaded tofu and the savory,…

Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup -- Epicurean Vegan

Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup

Yep, it’s still August. And yes, I know using a slow cooker in the summer isn’t necessarily the norm, but I’ve got my reasons. First, our summer here in Colorado has been interesting; lots of cloudy days and rain. Second, the guys were coming back from a three-night backpacking/camping trip and would be arriving home…

Potato-Filled Spinach Ravioli with Mushroom-Truffle Sauce -- Epicurean Vegan

Potato-Filled Spinach Ravioli with Mushroom-Truffle Sauce

Here I go again with the ravioli! Well, these could be like more like perogies, actually. Plus, I also added spinach to the dough which is definitely new for me. I’d been wanting to try that for a while now and I’m so glad I did. I’m already trying to figure out what other vegetables…

Pasta with Cashew Cream and Cheese -- Epicurean Vegan

Pasta with Cashew Cream & Cheese

(Unfortunately) most of us probably grew up on the boxed mac and cheese stuff, and likely, so have our kids. And kids like their mac and cheese. Instead of giving them that nasty, chemical-filled boxed junk, try making this kid-pleasing version using grated vegan cheese and cashew cream. Not only is it creamy, but it…

Tofu Caesar Wraps -- Epicurean Vegan

Tofu Caesar Wraps

Wraps are such a quick and easy meal, especially when summer activities have you running all over the place. Although, these are a great option during the school year when you need to grab-and-go. I love Caesar salad, but since going vegan, it’s hard to come by a non-dairy (and non anchovy) version. I made…

Field Roast Hand-formed Burgers -- Epicurean Vegan

Product Review: Field Roast Hand-Formed Burgers

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try out these Hand-Formed Burgers from Field Roast. Each package comes with 4 hand-formed burgers all ready for the grill (or in my case, grill pan). To start, here’s what’s in ‘em. One of the reasons I really enjoy Field Roast products (besides the absence of strange, unpronounceable…

Cashew Cheese Risotto -- Epicurean Vegan

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…

Gluten-Free Lemon Garlic Orzo with Fresh Veggies -- Epicurean Vegan

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…
