Here is a recipe I have been excited to make and post for a while now. A few months back Violife/Viofree sent us a new product they will be releasing soon for us to try: vegan Parmesan cheese! I am not sure if this product is available in stores yet but it should be soon. So, we tried this new vegan Parmesan cheese and it is amazing! I was very eager to make a vegan tofu Parmesan pasta with it. This is a bit of a big recipe though. We had to carefully consider when the weather would allow for photos while still preparing everything else in time for the photo shoot. We finally pulled it off and it is one of the most delicious vegan main courses we have had in a long time! It’s not a very difficult recipe so much as it is time consuming. It’s worth it to make it though! Here is how it’s done:
This is a recipe I have been wanting to post for a while now. I really love working with tofu, the possibilities still seem endless to me! This sweet and sour tofu is truly delicious to the last bite! I have made it a few times now so we finally decided it is time to share the recipe because we both love it. This recipe is not difficult to pull off at all but some of it is a bit time consuming. Preparing and frying the tofu takes some time but once that is done you can read a book or surf the internet while you are waiting for (and occasionally whisking) the simmering sauce. Give it a try, it’s a nice dish the whole family can enjoy or something you can break up into containers for lunch breaks this week!
I had never eaten mung beans before we made these mung bean patties. In fact, when Athanasia told me they were mung beans I immediately remembered this clip from the Office. I was pleasantly surprised though, these are some of the most delicious vegan burger patties I have ever tried. Besides, who can resit? Mung beans are very nutritious! This meal is the last installment in our vegan nutrition series we have been working on with vegan nutritionist Dimitra Makrigianni.
Today we are going to take a break from our nutrition series (for those of you following us) to talk about Meatout – eat vegan for a day. Meatout is a day to encourage all people to try a vegan diet for a day. We think it would be great if more people tried a vegan diet. Obviously we feel vegan food is real and delicious despite rumors circulating stating the contrary. Therefore we decided to compile this list of some recipes we think non-vegans would love to eat today (and maybe even ask for seconds!)! Our nutrition series information will be coming soon for our readers who are waiting for it. Continue reading Meatout – Eat Vegan For A Day
We spent more time deciding what to call this recipe than we did typing it up. Athanasia’s first idea was to call it beanballs. I tried to explain to her what a beanball was in baseball terminology but she still does not quite understand. Needless to say, we decided Greek vegan keftedakia was the way to go. This is another installment in our nutritionist series we are working on with Dimitra Makrigianni. This recipe, in it’s entirety represents a nutritious complete luncheon plate.
I am writing this post today with a bit of a smirk on my face. You see, for months and months now I have been telling Athanasia how delicious a green beans and vegan Feta pizza would be. She turned down the very thought of it every opportunity she got. Well, little by little she seemed to warm up to the idea so we finally made it and it is great! Our friend over at ohshecooks.com just got done with her famous pizza week which inspired us to make this pizza!
Here it is, our raw month challenge results post! As some of our readers may remember, we decided to do a 30 day raw vegan challenge beginning at the end of April 2014 through May 2014. We never managed to post the results and our thoughts on the challenge before our hard drive crashed over the summer. Shame on us for not backing up, so if you are reading this right now you should make a mental note to back up your important files after you are done reading! Lucky for us, Athanasia kept old school notes with a pen and paper so we are still able to (finally) publish this post. Sure, we lost some of the recipes we had and, of course, any photos we did not already upload to our blog are gone too. However, we can still share with you what we do have.

No Christmas is complete without a meatloaf, right? We have made a delicious gluten free vegan meatloaf we want to share with our readers this holiday season! This delicious vegan loaf primarily consists of walnuts and portobello mushrooms. While it was in the oven, I could not believe how amazing it’s aroma was! I knew it was going to be tasty and it sure did not let us down in that department! This was one of those recipes I was not entirely sure would work on my first attempt, however, it turned out great. We hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we did! Happy Holidays!
I had first attempted making lemon fried tofu chicken back in July (see our Vegan Mozzarella post for it’s first honorable mention). It turned out really well but we ate it so fast there was no time to photograph it for the blog! Needless to say, we both love this recipe so much we felt it was time to share it with our readers, so, we made it again.
Pows! What in the world is a pow? Well, as legend has it, my mom’s sister and her roommate made these when they were in college. They took the only ingredients they had left in the house and pow! Pows were officially born. My mom made these for my siblings and I as we grew up and we loved them! I actually never knew the story behind them until I told my mom a few weeks ago I was making vegan pows. She told me the story so now I know they came from my Aunt.
Making this recipe vegan was pretty easy and definitely delicious! I had to make these because I wanted Athanasia to try one of my favorite childhood foods veganized. As it turns out, she loves them too so I have made these a few times in the past month! This tasty grub can be served as an appetizer, snack, side dish or even a main course (they are filling)!
