Week 48: Pesto, Tempeh Bacon, and Shaved Brussel Sprouts Vegan Pizza

A fruit is a vegetable with looks and money. Plus, if you let fruit rot, it turns into wine, something Brussels sprouts never do. P.J.

Week 43: Comfort Food

Week 42: Spinach, Mushroom Heaven

All I can say is the bubbling pizza tasted as spectacular as it looked, and I didn’t even fool with fixin’ a salad to go with it. James Villas, Hungry for Happiness We loved the spinach artichoke dip inspired pizza we made for week 40 so much that we wanted to so something similar thisContinue reading “Week 42: Spinach, Mushroom Heaven”

Week 41: Banh Mi

The Banh Mi sandwich is really the only good argument for colonialism. Calvin Trillin As a vegan it’s hard to find sandwiches in shops. Take away the meat, cheese, dairy and egg, and there’s little leftover to create a filling sandwich. My partner introduced me to one of his favorite sandwiches–the Banh Mi. We couldn’tContinue reading “Week 41: Banh Mi”
