Vegetarian Buffalo “Chicken” Sandwich

September 8th, 2011 by Elise | Printer friendly version Printer friendly version 3 comments »
A few weeks ago, I had a delicious vegetarian buffalo chicken sandwich at The Remedy Diner, one of my favorite restaurants in downtown Raleigh. I thought that it was very tasty and decided to try making my own version at home. The restaurant version used breaded tofu “chicken” patties, but I decided to use seitan, which is made of seasoned wheat protein. It has a very chicken-like texture and no breading to add extra calories. You can find seitan at most health food stores. I also used a buffalo sauce recipe from food.com. The recipe says to only use Frank’s Red Hot sauce in the recipe, but other hot sauces may work as well. Jason and I agreed that this sandwich was extremely tasty and worth sharing here on my blog!

I’ve been experimenting with meat substitutes lately, so I decided to try making a lasagna with vegetarian ground beef. You can find it in most grocery stores in the produce section along with the tofu and tempeh. We really loved this lasagna and Jason rated it 5 stars! Serve it with something light, like a tasty side salad.

Jalapeno-Glazed Tempeh Burgers

June 15th, 2011 by Elise | Printer friendly version Printer friendly version 2 comments »
I made these recently and Jason and I agreed that they are the tastiest veggie burgers we’ve ever eaten! The jalapeno glaze really gives them that perfect extra something… The Pickapeppa sauce can be found with the BBQ and Worcestershire sauces at most grocery stores. You can serve them as a standalone dish, or try them on a burger bun with lettuce and tomato. For an extra special summer treat, try serving them with Baked “Fried” Green Tomatoes. Yum!

These chiles rellenos are very tasty. The Parmesan cheese adds a lot of flavor, while the Montery Jack melts well, which makes a good cheese combination for the filling. Serve them with a side salad or Southwestern corn for a delicious, low calorie meal. It’s just the sort of dinner I need after a holiday filled with overindulgence!

Creme Brulee French ToastThis french toast is definitely wonderful enough to enjoy over the holidays. It is also very easy to make. I recommend putting the ingredients together in the morning and then letting them spend the day in the refrigerator. When it’s time to go to bed, put it in your slow cooker so it will be ready to eat when you wake up. We love this recipe all year around!

Vegetable Pot PieIt’s getting close to that time of year when we start thinking about what fabulous dishes we’ll make for Christmas dinner! Of course, when you’re a vegetarian, the traditional turkey with stuffing or holiday ham doesn’t work. So what do you make on a special day like Christmas? This Vegetable Pot Pie should definitely fill the bill. It’s warm and unusually tasty on a cold winter night! As a time saver, look for pre-peeled and cubed butternut squash in the vegetable isle of your grocery store.
