The success of this soup depends on how well you follow the prep and cooking methods. I credit FORAGER and Edward & Sons with contributing to that success with their superior brandsof probiotic yogurt cashewmilk and veggie bouillon!This soup can also be served in small cups as an appetizer!
This is like no cream pie you ever experienced. Yet somehow it all seems so familiar. A rough and tumble cream pie? Is that even possible? With the animal-free chef, anything is possible!
Two egg-free dairy-free nogs, banana, sesame cashews, brown sugar and vanilla, blended and cooked like a pudding. Peanut butter pretzel nuggets and coconut made into a crust with only melted margarine. YES. To all of it!
Salsa and dairy free cream cheese with fresh cilantro and scallion. Serve cold with tortilla chips as an appetizer snack, or hot over Smoky Mashed Potatoes as a gravy with a few chips as dippers for a light supper, or with a side of veggie sausage for breakfast!
Or, how about this: A SALSA CREAM ALFREDO. Or, Salsa Cream MAC & CHEESE?
All the BASES are covered! No need to panic when you’re with Chef Davies-Tight.
Tofurky meets Tofutti in this dream boat of a meatlovers fantasy of textures! The fennel convinces you that you are indeed in a very special place – so forget-it-not! Cruise the party with Confidence! You made it!
Hey, we pair sauerkraut with potato and noodle, why not bread? Don’t forget the berries and nuts. Got ya covered. Brownberry provides the dried bread shreds and everything else is just about as you’d expect. Delicious Turn-About. Cider replaces the broth. And the nuts, berries and sauerkraut provide a meaty texture absent the sausage!
Salty, sweet, tangy, spicy smoothness. Textures like a heavenly chiffon. On a toasted English Muffin it feels like you’re biting into a scrumptious pillow of everything nice! Yow!And all this from using leftover cranberry sauce!
DELALLO Roasted Garlic Sauce with Chardonnay wine and V-8 juice used as extenders. Served with a mushroom, pepper, onion and tomato saute. Served over fettucini and topped with a BEYOND and LIGHTLIFE beef and sausage crumble!
A versatile sweet and tangy holiday sauce. Serve hot, at room temperature or cold as a condiment or as a sauce over desserts, veggies or plant meats. Or spread on your favorite toasted breads.It’s a keeper!Bring as a gift for the host of any food event. Pack in a celebratory jar. Everyone will want the recipe!
Those cranberry skins can get in the way of enjoying the cranberries. So what do we do? Make a pudding-like sauce that smooths the edges making the entire cranberry experience one to savor. Cilantro – in ground seed form and fresh leaves – now becomes something to talk about. You could call it the Halfway Cranberry Sauce – both jellied and whole in the same elegant sauce!
Before taste-testing I only had one question for Steve. Muffin or cupcake? What do you think? Upon tasting he said, “a muffcake”. So, MuffCake it is! I agree.
Not a pudding cake, not an air-stuffed bakery bought cake. Homemade, dry enough, moist enough, dense enough, flavorful enough, whereby you don’t taste the flour, crispy enough. Buckwheat adds something; I just don’t know what – yet!
Steve added, “and P.S. it tastes great.” Steve already warned me to put his MuffCakes aside for today’s game as the Browns take on the undefeated Patriots at Foxboro!
On his way out to the grocery store I hollered to him, “you better get some Tofutti cream cheese to have with them”.
Sauteed peppers and onion with Beyond Burger crumbles cooked in a RACCONTO marinara with Marsala wine, added tomato product and fresh zucchini wafers. We served ours over RACCONTO curly elbow macaroni!
Served with Mustard Grape Sage Sauce as a main dish roast or on an English muffin sandwich! Yes to it all!
En Croute means ‘in a pastry crust’. Today we’re serving an Artisan Vegan 100% Plant Based ROAST made from grains and veggies. Manufactured with the rosemary, candied ginger & sausage stuffing situated in the center of the roast, all formed in a neat roll wrapped in pastry.
Essentially the people over at FIELD ROAST developed a plant version of Beef Wellington, using the textures and flavors of sausage rather than beef. How’d they do? Well, I never had a beef Wellington in my animal-eating days, but I know what one is and what pastry and beef tastes like separately, so I can comfortably say that I’m glad I waited to experience the plant version first. Although I don’t make pastry, I’m a fan of pastry wrapped foods.
My contribution to this dish, besides following baking instructions to the letter, is a Mustard Sage Red Grape Sauce with Kalamata olive.
The crust, even when at room temperature, was flaky throughout. The roast, although giving the impression that it would be a little mushy, was firm and chewy, like you’d expect a sausage roast to be. Mashed potatoes and a green veggie side dish would have completed a holiday version of this meal, but it didn’t need side dishes for our purposes.
Serve this roast to any guests for any meal. When you aim to impress, this plant version of beef Wellington will come through for you!
No slice no dice. Two hands, a can opener, a pot and a spoon is all you need to make lunches for a week plus a few at-home-meals.
Packed full of flavors, textures and exclamation points – Fly to Italy, Greece, Spain without leaving your kitchen!

Ingredients: Steve waits till all these items are on sale. Use any brand you want, but these are good. Those grilled artichokes are super! If the recipe is too big for your pot, reduce the size (reducing by half works easiest.)

For some of the meals we cooked up some Veggie Meatballs by Lightlife and served them with the antipasto.
For other meals we served it over cooked elbow macaroni with ridges – RACCONTO brand.
In extra-large soup pot, over medium heat, add all ingredients, except the parmesan and meatballs, stirring after each addition.
Bring to slow boil, then reduce heat and cook for approximately 30 minutes.
Salt and pepper to taste.
If desired, add other seasonings of choice. Steve, for this antipasto, wanted dried Greek oregano, a little brown sugar and a couple dashes of cinnamon.
Pack into microwaveable containers when cool enough.
If desired add 2 vegan meatballs per container, sliced in half and pan-fried till done.
Place the sauce on top of the meatballs. If desired, sprinkle with vegan parmesan.
Then sprinkle with fresh grind black pepper.
Both vegan products (meatball and parmesan) if you decide to use them will definitely wow you. But they are not required in this dish.
Notes: Lucky’s Market on Clifton Blvd. is where Steve primarily shops for the specialty items on sale.
For the non-specialty items he waits till they’re on sale at Sapell’s, Walgreen’s, Giant Eagle, Heinens, Aldi’s, Earth Fare, Whole Foods, probably the same markets you shop at. Everybody always has something on sale.
If you haven’t been to Lucky’s take a ride out. It’s new, different and lots of fun. You can get a pint of beer and 2 slices of pizza for 5$. You can also sip your beer or wine while you shop – low price on both
Fresh herbs, walnuts, grated carrot, vegan yeast, added to the ground tofu and meatless hot dogs make the spread more nutrient dense than others we’ve developed. This is our healthier spread! Serve on any bread or as a salad on a lettuce leaf. Tasty as always with enhanced texture from the added ingredients!
Artichokes, black and green olives, sun-dried tomatoes, lots of fresh garlic and ginger simmered with nothing better than San Marzano tomatoes! Fat-free, except for a negligible amount found naturally in the olives.
Do you think it’s time to put the whole world on a diet? I think so.
The world, the whole world, needs to stop eating animals.
Everybody – adults, children, and other animals too. We need to find a way to feed the carnivorous animals on the planet plant food. We can do it with the will.
We need to replace animal with plant.
It’s a lot easier and cost efficient to grow plants, than it is to birth and raise animals. It doesn’t make any logical sense to do anything but. So there’s a drought, the plants dry up and we eat our family?
That’s where we are right now? We’re eating our families, so the conditions of the earth must be in dire straits?
We’re all animals. We need to take care of each other, firstly, by not cooking each other. Why are we cooking animals? When plants…
Barq’s Root Beer and Canada Dry diet Ginger Ale mixed with cocoa, dark brown sugar, Balsamic vinegar, coriander and allspice! Different but Delicious! Serve over salad, fresh sliced fruit (I like banana) or as a dipping sauce for veggie chicken nuggets! How about all three? That’ll put a smile on your Fat-Free Animal-Free Friday!
Steve likes to use ingredients I call dodads – gourmet type items he finds at the market – stuff that’s fun to buy, unique stuff like garlic in a tube, herb paste in a tube etc. I’ll tell ya, he had an uncanny sense of what goes with what, since this sauce, more like a rich broth with solids, turned my head for sure! I ran to get my pad and pen to write down the ingredients while still fresh in his mind – this is it, one of the finest broth-type sauces I’ve ever tasted!
You can’t get much better than this. Lots of new techniques applied to an old-time favorite salad. Macaroni has a new place in the heirarchy of pasta salads. You don’t even need the dressing, in fact some of you will want to forego it. Or, half with dressing, half without. Either way it made it to the moon and back!
Tired of the same old macaroni salad? Want to perk it up? Well, you came to the right person. Contains no animal products and who would know? Using products developed by Delight Soy and Hellman’s Mayonnaise who care about your animal-free experience we swung for the fences and went clear over the top into the next county! Take a look and see what you think!
We couldn’t make this salad with chicken-like plant meat and egg-like dressing alone, so a tip of the hat to all the manufacturers and farmers who contributed to the success of this dish!
Green cabbage, vegan ham, vegan yeast, light-flavored sesame oil, liquid smoke, Balsamic vinegar and whole cooked frozen peas are the differential ingredients that take an ordinary pea soup to new culinary heights! give it a try!
Okay, so what’s this now? The AFC POACHED EGG SAUCE! Okay it doesn’t look exactly like a poached egg that you put on toast. YET, cut up a chicken poached egg and mix it on itself, and preTTy close. The flavors and textures are there. It’s the best yet. Plus, no sulfur. I’m going with it. S-O-A-R-ing with it! Wow. Thank you God!
This is the first time making or tasting red rice. Although they state that the rice can be used in any dish calling for rice, I discovered another use unrelated to rice – as a hamburg substitute in chili. Looks like hamburg, textured closely like cooked hamburg, so I’m going to give it a try to see what happens. Results to come in another post!
