Southwest Tofu Scramble – adapted from Minimalist Baker

Southwest Tofu Scramble – adapted from Minimalist Baker

Tofu scramble hot, tofu scramble cold,
Tofu scramble in the pot, nine days old;
Some like it hot, some like it cold,
Some like it in the pot, nine days old.

 

Since I seem to love adapting recipes from the collections of admired chefs and bakers, both vegan and non vegan, it is fitting that I adapt an old nursery rhyme about porridge made from peas: a much beloved rhyme that my mother recited to me and I, in turn, recited …

Mac and Cheese (Adapted from Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s Mac Daddy)

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and this would be the case for the work and recipes of well know vegan author, animal rights advocate, chef and restaurateur, Isa Chandra Moskowitz.

Reflections on Veganism and Animal Rights Activism in 2018

New Year’s Day 2018

I am sitting on my comfy sofa in my warm home enjoying the silence and solitude as family slumbers peacefully in their beddy-byes! The only other person up and about is my kitty cat, Rosie who nudges me occasionally to let me know that her breakfast time is coming up shortly.

My thoughts turn to all animals, both human and non human, who are being exploited and therefore harmed for the sake of human wants, not needs. Our …

This Vegan’s Plant Powered Christmas Party is Over

It was a lot of work and a lot of fun. It is, as a vegan and a fair to middling cook and baker, my absolute pleasure to showcase delicious plant powered food for friends and family.

My website, which …
