Easy Sri Lankan Kale and Coconut

Memphis and I love creating meals with whole foods. Because we’re anti-diet culture, we use fresh virgin oils and raw nuts and seeds. However, we discovered this delicious oil-free, dry stew on Fat-Free Vegan (see link at the bottom of post.) This rich flavors and textures are a tasty way to eat more greens. We’ve modified…

Basic Bean Burger Recipe

Before plant-based meals became a trending lifestyle, a few brave souls were venturing into the arena of meatless meals. I have been collecting recipes for a long time, as has Memphis and this one is tried and true. It makes 10 thick, half-cup burgers. If you prefer yours to be smaller or thinner, use a…

Chipotle Black Bean Soup

Soup is a delicious and filling meal for lunch or dinner. Once it’s made, it’s a small matter to heat it up. As you might have guessed, it tastes great the day it’s made and even better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to develop. In colder months, I try to…

Vegan Hawaiian Bowl

Until my husband puts the grill under cover, I keep grilling out, even in winter. I love these summer flavors especially then, on a bright sunny day, I might pretend that summer is just around the corner.  We were blessed unexpectedly with an afternoon of bright sun and temperatures above 65 degrees just before winter. …

Egg Nog Chia Pudding

I used to love glugging eggnog until I found out how much refined sugar was in it. And based on animal-protein ingredients, the calorie count was criminal! I did miss the unique flavor, however. I don’t have to count calories with this plant-based version, and it leaves me completely satisfied. Adding chia seeds takes it…

Memphis Black Bean Hash

Memphis surprised me one day bringing me a type of “Mexican Bento Box” filled with delicious tasties after a long day in which I had been unable to prepare meals. What I remember most was her version of plant-based tacos. While she has used purple cabbage leaves, these were wrapped in wheat flour tortillas. I…

Tempeh Reuben

Becoming plant-based has its occasional challenges and my love of Reubens was no small sacrifice. Although I no longer remember when this recipe became part of my repertoire, I’ve made it often enough that I committed it to memory. I find it deeply satisfying, as did the vegetarian friends with whom I shared it. Although I…

Papa Wolfe Soup

This soup is ideal for when the weather turns frigid and your house feels cold inside. Because it’s what I call an all-day soup, I knock out another time-consuming task while it cooks (like laundry). There are three stages to preparing this which also means the pot doesn’t have to be watched every second. Though…

Vegan Sweet Potato Latkes

At least once a year, always after the potato harvest came in, my father would make an enormous batch of potato latkes. It was a rare treat to have him cooking dinner in the kitchen, which was too bad since he really changed up the menu. Once the oil was hot, he kept making potato…
