Around this time a year or two ago, I made some fabulous Halloween Pumpkin Pancakes with inspiration from this recipe from the not martha website. To veganize the pancakes, I substituted vegan butter and used either EnerG Egg Replacer or 1 smashed banana to replace the egg. They were fantastic and fun to eat!
Using fresh vegetables from our CSA (broccoli, cauliflower, & more greens), my husband made a tasty stir-fry recently. Using this recipe as his inspiration, he omitted the sweetener, broth, and corn starch. He also used different veggies (see list above). The recipe can be easily adapted depending on taste and vegetable preferences. It was a welcome change to my normal Americana dinner fare. He also took this awesome photo to boot (and has been taking a lot of the more recent pictures in my blog posts).
If you haven’t been able to tell lately, I’ve been a little obsessed with soups and particularly recipes in Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons by Nava Atlas! Since I love Mexican food and her recipes, this was the perfect soup. You can find this recipe graciously shared on her website. Top with some Daiya Cheddar Shreds or Follow Your Heart Cheddar and it’s wonderful.
Pumpkin season is upon us and with that I’ve been inspired to make more and more dishes with pumpkin as a key ingredient. Using the roasted pumpkin pulp from a sugar pumpkin we recently got in our CSA, I forged on to make some yummy desserts. I was pleased to find this delicious recipe for Pumpkin Crumb Cake with Pecan Streusel in Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. The cake turned out moist and dense with the perfect blend of spices. We had it for dessert and breakfast. It goes great with a cup of hot tea or coffee. Even my husband, who hates anything with pumpkin, enjoyed it. Score!
Another soup yummy for the tummy is one of my latest creations from Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons by Nava Atlas. It was a great way to use up some veggies from our CSA, such as parsnips, carrots, and potatoes. It was a rich, thick, delicious medley of root vegetables. Topped with some bacon bits (accidentally vegan), this is one filling meal.
