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!

Vegan Japanese Cuisine: Daikon Chrysanthemums by Robert-Gilles Martineau

Here is a simple and “artistic” recipe using daikon and yuzu/lime. It’s called 菊花大根/Kikuhana Daikon which can be translated as Chrysanthemum Daikon. You don’t need Chrysanthemums, but only cut the daikon into the shape of the flower!

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…

Tasty Indian

Tasty Indian by Amanda Millen

One of the values of making bread is the sharing, not just of the food but of the idea. Knowledge is wealth - and over the years, I would like to think I have enriched a lot of minds with bread recipes that I have taught others to make. I have been to a lot of places, enough to compare and incorporate the various cultures in my…

Vegan Dude Food: Chili Cheese Fries

Vegan Dude Food: Chili Cheese Fries by Vegan Thyme

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!"

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…

Allergy-Friendly Vegan Apple Cinnamon & Raisin Muffins

Allergy-Friendly Vegan Apple Cinnamon & Raisin Muffins by The Blender Girl

I just don't think you can go wrong with the combination of apples, cinnamon and raisins. In fact, if you are baking egg-free sweet breads, cakes and muffins, apples are one of your best culinary friends. They help to bind and add texture and flavor that is not too overpowering (you could use an extra pinch of cinnamon if you wanted…

Guacamole from Oaxaca

Guacamole from Oaxaca by John Spottiswood

This is an easy to make, flavorful, and slightly spicy guacamole. Previously I never blended the onion, garlic and cilantro into a puree as this calls for, and I think it does a better job of distributing the flavors evenly. It also reduces the amount of fine mincing required. Even if you've got a trusted guacamole recipe, you…

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…

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…
