6/4 In The Cracks

Photo By: S. Duquet This past week we received a “mystery ingredient” in our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share from Living Stones Farm.  We recognized it as a very prevalent plant, but seldom one that is consumed.  It was Purslane, a leggy-looking sprout with small leaves.  Most of us consider it a weed, because it [...]

5/21 Memorial Day Menus

Happy Meatless Monday. I thought it would be fun to share two completely different menus for Memorial Day planning. This way, you will have plenty of time to shop and incorporate some vegan dishes for your Memorial Day celebrations.

4/17 Going Greek

One of my favorite foods in the world has always been Tzatziki, the cucumber Greek yogurt sauce  most commonly served with Greek food. I used to devour it with pita and on sandwiches of all kinds. I haven’t had it since we went vegan. I have not even tried to veganize it in my own [...]

4/7 Gnocchi with Butternut Sage Cream Sauce

I have been wanting to create a pasta dish with a butternut sage sauce. I saw an entree once with that sauce and thought it sounded so rich and beautiful.  I paired whole wheat gnocchi, (which I have never made until now) with  roasted butternut squash, fresh sage and raw cashews for the creamiest, dreamiest [...]
