Sichuan Stirfried VegPork with Veggies and Pickled Mustard Green

We decided to take a long overdue trip to Chinatown last weekend.  It was great to find some hard to find items, including pickled mustard green.  Here’s an incredibly addictive Sichuan recipe from Wei-Chuan’s Chinese Cooking cookbook, modified to be vegetarian.  The ginger and pickled mustard green are the stars in this recipe, and pair perfectly […]

Russian VegBeef Stroganoff

This Russian dish is classic in America, commonly found in TV dinners, but is never available in a vegetarian version.  We’ve updated it for our vegetarian diet, and have replaced the traditional sour cream with yogurt for a healthier dish.  Enjoy! Ingredients: 1 pack egg noodles, cooked to package instructions fresh oregano for garnish (optional) […]

Singaporean Five-Spice VegPork with Broken Bean Curd Noodles

This dish has rich five-spice savory flavors, creamy thin bean-curd noodles, with crispy water chestnuts for texture.  It’s low carb and packed full of protein.  We adapted from Wei-Chuan’s Singaporean, Malaysian & Indonesian Cuisine cookbook for our vegetarian diet and available ingredients.  The original recipe called for rolling the meat in the sheets to make […]

Turkish Ali Nazik Kebab

We were blesssed to get a private cooking lesson from Gülevren last night.  It was a unique treat watching superwoman.  She cook 5 dishes for a 10 person dinner, while teaching us and watching the kids.  Here’s her Ali Nazik Kebab dish, with its bold tangy meaty topping and cool, smooth eggplant base. Ingredients: Yogurt Eggplant […]

Beijing VegPork Sandwich

We’ve been on a bit of a sandwich kick lately, and thought we’d try Peking VegPork in a sandwich instead of on top of rice.  The results were delicious.  Below is the recipe, adapted from Wei-Chuan’s Szechwan Style cookbook for our vegetarian diet and tastes.  The Peking VegPork goes over rice by itself well too. […]

Thai Panang VegBeef Curry

Panang curry is my favorite Thai curry.  It’s got that sweet creamy spiciness that I love.  Here’s our vegetarianized version of it, adapated from Wei-Chuan’s Thai Cookbook for our vegetarian diet.  We’ve tried and tweeked this recipe several times to get it just right.  We’re really happy with the final result. Ingredients: 4 Morningstar Vegetarian Sausage […]

Hawaiian Musubi

Everytime I see musubi in a Hawaiian market or potluck, I get so jealous.  Looks so yummy with its sweet soy fatty topping wrapped in a cute nori package.  So I decided to make a vegetarian version!  Below is what Deniz and I created over the weekend, turned out tasting great!  Enjoy! Ingredients: 2 c sushi […]

Meatloaf

Deniz loves meatloaf.  There’s something so wholesome and American about it.  We’ve made it a couple of times using different recipes and have found this one to be the best (so far).  It’s modified from Michael Chiarello’s Italian Meatloaf recipe, and adapted for our vegetarian diet and taste.  We really like the combination of the Morningstar […]

Taiwanese Stir-fried VegPork with Pickled Cucumber (味全花瓜炒素肉絲)

There’s something so satisfying about soy-pickled cucumbers combined with meaty flavors and textures.  We were excited to find this Taiwanese dish in Wei-Chuan’s Chinese Cuisine cookbook, and adapted for our vegetarian diet.   It’s so simple to make.  Salty and perfect on rice. Ingredients: 12 Morningstar Original Vegetarian Sausage Patties 2 green onions, chopped in 1-inch […]

Mexican VegBeef Tamales

I love tamales, and wish vegetarian versions were more commonly available.  Below is Tyler Florence’s recipe adapted for our vegetarian diet.  Takes a while to make, but is totally worth it.  Has that perfect blend of chilies, vegetarian beef, and sweet corn.  This version is very mild, with just a touch of heat. Ingredients: 1 […]
