New potatoes and leeks

New Potatoes and Leeks Stir-fry

Nature is such a wonderful thing we often take for granted. Last fall, I discovered some wrinkled potatoes that I had completely forgotten about and as a result had sprouted in the back of my pantry. I proceeded by cutting them into small pieces, each with a sprout and planted them in my garden covering […]

Creamy Mushroom Fettucini

Wild Mushroom Fettucini with Wilted Spinach Salad

Ok, so I may have spoken too fast. Summer hasn’t arrived yet. It looks like the seasons have shifted a whole month forward. April showers are now May showers and the temperatures aren’t exactly summer like these days. Apparently with the various large earthquakes and tsunamis, the earth’s axis has shifted more than one degree. […]

Vegetable Stir-fry with Polenta

Vegetable Stew with Polenta

Earth Day Portland What a glorious day today was. Quite appropriate for Earthday. I love Portland. As in most cities accross the US, Portland had its celebration of all good things for the earth, found locally, built sustainably, with respect to the earth and all its inhabitants, in music, artful displays, bringing together young and […]

Polenta fries

Polenta Fries

Pronounced “Po-len-tah”, this native dish of Italy is made with ground yellow  cornmeal. Unlike grits, which is corn that has been soaked and processed to remove the tough outer hull, polenta has the hull and is therefore more nutritious and less processed. If you are tired of rice, pasta, quinoa or other grains, you can […]

eggless quiche

Eggless Mini Pepper Quiche

I found an old black and white photo of my grandmother and I when I was 4 years old. It brought back so many happy memories and especially of being in the kitchen watching her lovingly concocting all kinds of delicious dishes.  The colors, flavors and textures varying with the seasons. I had the all […]

meat-free pizza

Pizza Sophia

Why order pizza when you can make your own and tailor it to your taste? Because it is easier? Maybe if you are in a hurry but not if you get a little organized. Homemade is not only cheaper but so much fun when you have friends over. Everyone can participate and make their own […]

Mexican Vegan tortilla casserole

Vegan Tortilla Casserole

Last night, we were in the mood for Mexican food and Spanish rice but wanted something a little more elaborate. We had hard corn tortillas, some left over vegie meats and some vegan cheese. Just the right ingredients for a special casserole. It is a Mexican version of shepard’s pie! Make sure to make extra, […]

Vegan Stuffed poblano peppers

Stuffed Poblano Peppers

We are not big on bell peppers at home, but chiles and especially poblanos chiles make a nice dish if you have leftovers in the fridge. I happened to have some leftover brown rice and barley, some mushrooms, some vegie meat, so I had all kinds of goodies to stuff these babies. If you look […]

Spiced Black Bean Patties

Spicy Black Bean Patties

Winter’s cold temperatures and lack of sunlight tend to slow us down a little. It is a normal part of the season. But if you need a little extra energy, why not turn to black beans. They are a great source of protein and fiber so they help your digestion and you will feel full […]

Meat-free Nutloaf

Easy Meat-Free Nutloaf

What to make for Christmas dinner this year? I thought we could buy some already made mock meat but they can be a little intense texture wise, a little expensive and not always practical if you are serving a big table. So this time I decided to try a nutloaf.  Sure, it isn’t exactly fancy […]
