Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar by Lynn Yamamoto Dalman

This is fresh, healthy and delicious. People love it, even kids. You can make it ahead, so it's great for a summer party. Serve it with scoop-shaped tortilla chips, or have it on the side as a relish. I add extra cilantro, because there can never be too much cilantro!

Raw Green Pea and Almond Dip - " Kurma"

Raw Green Pea and Almond Dip - " Kurma" by The Blender Girl

The second this dip hit my lips, it was love at first bite – I immediately became intoxicated with the unique zesty flavor and crunchy texture. This dip epitomizes the “blend and chow in under 5 minutes” philosophy that I am so fond of. It is dead easy, bursting with flavor, and incredibly versatile. Another added bonus is that the…

A very familiar old superbowl or party favorite, but made much better with the vegan spin! Honestly, this cheese recipe does what is says--brings the cheese back to "chili cheese fries!"

Vegan Japanese Cuisine: New Lotus Roots & Umeboshi

Vegan Japanese Cuisine: New Lotus Roots & Umeboshi by Robert-Gilles Martineau

Lotus roots, when new and fresh, should be prized for their great natural taste. They can even be eaten almost raw after a little marinating. The Japanese have a simple and delicate way to prepare them with umeboshi/Japanese pickled plums, which should please vegans and vegetarians (and omnivores). It certainly makes for a great snack…

Jamaican "Beef" Patties

Jamaican "Beef" Patties by Kiki Thompson

Coming from a Jamaican background, many times my palate craves the blended flavors of curry. So I veganized one of my favorite treats, Jamaican Beef Patties. These are kind of similar to Mexican empinadas, but spicy I was kind of skeptical at first, but you can not tell the difference…it’s all about the seasoning when it comes down…

Latke's

Latke's by Farrell May Podgorsek

This is a very crispy latke with a small, creamy center. These can be made gluten free and egg free. I strongly prefer the egg replacer over eggs. Egg Replacer is a tapioca starch product that helps bind the potato mixture. It can be found at Natural Food Stores and lasts forever. Read through directions carefully before…

Carciofi alla romana (Roman-style Artichokes) by Frank Fariello

Dear readers: I am back from my travels, at my blogging post just in time for the first day of Spring. Artichokes are back in season! And is there any vegetable more typical of Roman cooking, perhaps of all Italian cuisine, than the artichoke?

Cinnamon and Ginger Cranberry Sauce

Cinnamon and Ginger Cranberry Sauce by The Blender Girl

This home-made cranberry sauce can be made in minutes; it is ridiculously easy; and absolutely scrumptious. Once you make this, you will never be caught dead buying a jar of pre-made cranberry sauce again. I have always loved cranberry sauce, and this blend is a winner. I have deliberately kept it very basic. I just love the…
