Anniversary Enchiladas!

Last week, Dan and I celebrated our 14 year anniversary. We made enchiladas to celebrate.



I went semi-homemade with these, 'cause I really wanted to get to the real celebration, if you know what I mean.

I used store bought corn tortillas and enchilada sauce. I stuffed half of the tortillas with a mixture of pinto beans and vegan cream cheese. The other half were stuffed with a mixture of SOYRIZO and vegan cream cheese. I placed the enchiladas, seam side down, in a glass baking dish and poured the sauce over them. I baked them at 350, covered, for 35 minutes, and then uncovered for 15 more minutes. I topped them with Cozy Inside Nacho Cheezy Sauce, vegan sour cream, guacamole and olives. Garnished with cilantro. Yum.

I scream, you scream...

Look what I got!

So, of course, I had to make this:


Espresso Chocolate Chip Cake and Kahlua Ice Cream Sundae
For the cake I used this recipe.
For the Kahlua Ice Cream:
Ingredients
2 cups soy vanilla creamer
2 cupos vanilla soy milk
1 cup Kahlua
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp Instant Clear Jel
Directions
Dissolve the Instant Clear Jel into 1/4 cup of the soy milk. Mix all ingredients together and follow the directions on YOUR ice cream maker. If you don't have an ice cream maker, that's okay, follow the directions HERE ignoring the recipe they give. Note that alcohol does not freeze, so even if you put this in the freezer for weeks, it remains perfectly scoopable!

100 Foods and Environmentalist Should Never Eat

Kelly Sonora sent me this article on 100 foods an Environmentalist should never eat. Although the list does provide that a vegan and/or vegetarian lifestyle is certainly better for the environment, it also provides nothing left to eat! Seriously. If I follwed these rules, I wouldn't be able to eat anything at all! Anywho, it is an interesting read.

Cookies & Cakes!

I was given the task of creating "culinary delights" for a fundraiser the other night. I decided on cookies and cakes. Who doesn't love cookies and cakes? I made Lemon Poppyseed Cakes, Espresso Chocolate Chip Cakes, and Cherry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Here's the recipe for the cookies:

Noochy Burgers and Fiesta Mac Salad

Here's yet another mac salad for you! Plus a bonus tester recipe from the burger book. Noochy Burgers=Cheezy goodness.



Noochy Burger

Serving Suggestion
I like to keep the fixin's simple on this one as the taste of this patty is pretty rich. A little mayo, maybe some avocado and some ketchup, if you must, on a soft white bun.

Ingredients (makes about 6 patties)
1 cup TVP
1 cup veggie broth
1/2 cup cashew nut butter
1/2 cup vegan sour cream
1/4 cup tahini paste
2 tbsp mellow white or yellow miso
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 cup vital wheat gluten
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp paprika
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp dried parsley flakes (or 1 tbsp fresh)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions
Reconstitute TVP with the veggie broth (either by mixing together in a microwave safe dish and covering tightly with plastic wrap and microwaving for 6 minutes, OR by pouring boiling veggie broth over the TVP, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.) Allow TVP to cool enough to handle. Mix all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Add all wet ingredients to the TVP. Mix well. Add dry to wet and knead together until a nice dough forms. Form into patties and prepare as desires. Fry in oil until golden and crispy, about 3-5 minutes per side or bake in the oven at 350, loosely covered in foil for about 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Fiesta Mac Salad

Ingredients
1 lb elbow macaroni, prepared according to package instructions
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 medium red onion, diced
12 oz fire roasted red peppers (I use jarred, packed in water)
1/2 cup vegan mayo
3/4 cup vegan sour cream
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Directions
Drain and cool prepared pasta. Mix all ingredients into the pasta. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
