This one comes from Nigella Lawson and is very, very good. I started making it with tofu for myself and salmon for the rest of the family. Very easy recipe and the sauce is great on the rice – so says Dylan. Of course the salmon is not vegan but using tofu instead makes this [...]
Of course this is a vegan quiche and a pretty good one. The recipe calls for ‘greens’ and for this one I have used Kale. Kale is a super food, probably the healthiest vegetable on the planet.
Kale is low in calorie, high in fiber and has zero fat. Kale is high in iron. Per [...]
This is an incredible dessert. I first made it for St. Patrick’s Day but it could be and should be enjoyed all year round. The recipe serves four. When I make it Hayley usually eats three of them if not all four! She loves avocados. This is a very easy dessert to make and [...]
Here is a wonderful pasta dish that Hayley and I really like. It is easy to make and there is lots of room for your own variation with the types of vegetables you use. I would like to make this with home-made pasta as I do for my non-vegan lasagnas but I haven’t tried it [...]

Wow, one week of being Vegan and feeling great. The biggest hurdle, What to put in my morning coffee? I made the mistake the first day of using vanilla soy milk, yuch! but then bought unsweetened soy milk, perfect. My daughter decided to go vegetarian a while ago and now has decided to go vegan.

It is a grilled tofu with a chile peanut sauce. Fantastic dish. I thought we would eat the steak and Hayley would eat the tofu, with [...]
