Our good friend over at Viva Las Vegans introduced us to these vegan soy steaks. She also taught us how to make them as we had plenty of questions. They are very delicious and can be used in tacos, by themselves or even on a pizza! They come in many different sizes and for this recipe we will be using the smallest size. When you buy them they are basically dry and in a packaged. Here in Greece these can be found at both Botanica here in Patra and at Bamboo Vegan in Athens. I will explain to you how I make them.
All last summer with Jake we were eating Greek salad, (we call it horiatiki salad here!). Now that it is summer again, well, at least the calendar says so but it hasn’t stopped raining the past two weeks (yay!), we are eating Greek salad every day. Thanks to our friends over at Viva Las Vegans, we now have a great vegan Feta cheese recipe! Which I know doesn’t mean a whole lot to Jake, but to a Greek, it is the most important thing to have a Greek salad with vegan Feta cheese!
The lightest, tastiest, easiest potato salad with vegan mayo I have ever had 🙂 Only 4 basic ingredients! How cool is that? A cool dish for those warm days that are coming up. Top it with red or green onions, pickles, raw peppers or capers. Even multi-eyed monsters love it, as you can see in the photo below:
My mom always has stove-top mushrooms ready when we visit, they are a must on the menu. Not to mention she makes them perfectly every time! She says for stove-top mushrooms to be good, you need to saute them until right before they start loosing their juice, otherwise they get soggy. It took me some time to actually figure it out, but when I did, I was the winner of that day’s food contest :). Yes, there is a contest going on (Editor’s note: Athanasia is very competitive). What are you gonna do? We are a Leo and an Aries cooking together, they will try and kick each other’s butt! Unfortunately Jake is such a talented cook so he usually makes the most mind blowing food, but I have some tricks up my sleeves too 🙂 One of them is stove-top mushrooms!

I recently had my wisdom tooth removed and Jake is constantly providing me with smoothies and blended food, as if I am 3 months old! Yes I have to, but still, I am a tee wee jealous of food that is delicious you can actually bite into. Like these devilish baby potatoes I made the day before the surgery. May I say, bad idea to write down this recipe after I had the tooth removed, because now I am drooling!
These little balls of bread are very delicious. They go very well with our marinara sauce! Obviously these make a great Super Bowl snack as well. This gluten free vegan meatball bread idea came to existence by accident but ended up being so delicious that we had to share them. A few weeks ago, I was trying to create a gluten-free vegan meatball since most of the ways it’s done uses gluten. I ended up using too much flour and these little meatball breads emerged. Sometimes failures can be a success in the kitchen, rarely, but sometimes. Here is how I made them: Continue reading Gluten Free Vegan Meatball Bread
It’s Super Bowl Sunday! If you are anything like me you want to get all your food ready before the big game so you can watch football and the commercials. I made a delicious gluten free vegan marinara sauce that we love as a snack. I have made this recipe many times now and decided it was time to share it. Athanasia says I only make bread now so I can make marinara. She says marinara and I should get a room! I guess I am passionate about marinara sauce! Here is how I did it: Continue reading Gluten Free Vegan Marinara Sauce
It’s Super Bowl time so we wanted to post some ideas for vegan Super Bowl Snacks!
Potatoes are the easiest and cheapest vegan, gluten free food we have, so it’s a game of finding a thousand and one ways to make them! Here we made maple mustard mashed potatoes packed with mouth watering sweet and tangy flavors. Here is how we did it:
The less painful way is to wrap them in aluminum foil, after you Continue reading Maple Mustard Mashed Potatoes
