Vegetarian / Vegan Roasted Eggplant and Zucchini Casserole

I made 2 versions of this roasted veggie casserole. Both were tasty, though I think I might be partial to the vegan version in this case. The version with the custard topping came out something like a frittata or a crustless quiche, while the version with the tomatoes and lentils came out like an interesting…

Vegan Seitan Fajitas

This is a great summer meal – easy to make, and fun to eat. Marinate the seitan at least 2 hours in advance, if possible, and throw the rest together shortly before you are ready to eat. Though the prep time is long, active cooking time is actually very short. About seitan: Seitan is a…

Cheesy Quinoa and Spinach Patties

These were one of those happy accidents… I cooked my quinoa in too much water, no good for the salad I had planned, but I thought the texture might work well for patties.

Ground Tempeh Burgers

  I went to bed hungry the other night and came up with this recipe while trying to fall asleep. I made them without eggs and they were delicious, but a bit crumbly. If you prefer a sturdier patty, you can add an egg or two. This recipe makes about 12-14 medium-sized burgers. 2 (8oz)…
