Easy TVP Tacos

June 19th, 2015 Printer friendly version Printer friendly version No comments »
TVP tacosTVP makes a really quick, tasty taco filling! These tacos can me be made vegan by skipping the cheese or by using a non-dairy version. I used Go Veggie shredded vegan cheddar. If you will be eating this meal on multiple days, leave the skin on the left-over portion of the avocado. Place it cut side down in a small container with a thin layer of lemon juice on the bottom. The lemon juice will keep the avocado from turning brown! Wholly Guacamole 100 calorie snack packs also work well. Other possible garnishes to try include corn, regular or vegan yogurt or sour cream, green chilies, beans, etc.

Vegetarian Buffalo “Chicken” Sandwich

September 8th, 2011 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!

Taco Salad

Vegetarian Taco SaladI had a craving for Mexican last week, so I made this tasty salad. I also made my own Tomatillo Salsa to dress it with, which made it extra delicious! The salsa is pretty easy to throw together, so I highly recommend making a batch if you have the time. However, you can use a store bought salsa instead if you are in a hurry.

Nutty Spaghetti

Nutty SpaghettiThis unusual spaghetti recipe utilizes curry powder, peanut butter and sunflower oil in addition to the more expected flavor of tomato juice. It is also very quick and easy to make which tends to be a regular theme of my cooking in Spring. Serve it with a side salad to get a full serving of veggies and to add additional color to the plate.

Corn and Black Bean Salad with Tortilla Wedges

Corn and Black Bean Salad with Tortilla WedgesI’m currently planning my Summer garden and didn’t have lots of time to cook this week, so I made this yummy salad. The original recipe called for store bought fat-free Italian dressing. However, when I read the ingredient label, I discovered that the third and fourth ingredients listed were corn syrup and salt, with various food colorings thrown in farther down the list. Instead, I made my own Italian dressing, which I posted earlier this week. I also substituted whole wheat tortillas to add more healthy fiber to the salad.

Vegetable Curry with Couscous

Vegetable Curry with CouscousThis is one of my favorite curry recipes. I use mango chutney in this dish which adds a tangy sweetness, as do the raisins. This is also extremely easy to make, which makes it a great recipe for Spring, when many of us would rather spend our time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather!
