Cream of Chanterelle Soup

Friday, October 31st, 2008

Cream of Chanterelles I may be at the end of the mofo challenge, but I hope I’m not at the end of chanterelle season. I’ve been welcoming fall by making a lot of soup lately. I found a chanterelle soup recipe online by the mycological society and have been wanting to give it a try. […]

Brunch at Bob’s Red Mill

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Bob’s Red Mill I think Bob’s brand has gotten big enough that I now see it in the larger chain grocery stores. I would think it is available in small towns by now. I’m excited to report that I live near the mill. I made it there for brunch recently with friends and basked in […]

Fudgy Brownies

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Looks like fudge in the center I have 3 posts left to fill my quota for Vegan MoFo. This has been a busy month for me in many regards, but I’ve been trucking along in the blog posts. It’s been hard to blog this often, but it’s been good for me to stop procrastinating and […]

Arugula Pesto

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Pesto-licious I came into an abundance of arugula recently and thought I’d make a pesto from it. I threw in a little leftover basil to maintain that “pesto” taste, but I think it turned out to be a fun alternative to the traditional pesto. It’s not overly intense, so feel free to modify to your […]

Breakfast? Eggless Omelettes

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Vegan Omelette I would never have thought it possible. A vegan omelette. What a silly concept, but in reality it’s amazing. Groundbreaking.I’ve always thought tofu scrambles to be o.k. Tofu can never become an egg, there’s just something noticeable about the taste and texture. I’d prefer granola anyways. But this recipe over at FatFreeVegan is […]

Fig Tart with Maple-Cashew Cream in a Rosemary Cornmeal Crust

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

Fig Tart Taking a break from mushrooms, let’s look at this luscious tart I made recently. It was really easy to make and very tasty. For the crust, I veganized a recipe off epicurious and it was amazing. It’s a cornmeal crust with rosemary and I made it in my food processor. Instead of butter […]

What’s in MY freezer?

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

Billy over at Vegan Talk created a tag, you’re it! for unveiling your freezer. I have recently been tagged by For the Love of Guava and feel it is my duty to share with the world what is in my freezer. I feel like it connects to the age old veg*n question, “What do you […]

Mystery Mushroom

Monday, October 20th, 2008

Cluster of … Underside I got this at work last night. No one could tell me what it was, therefore, they couldn’t sell it to the public. It’s not in my pocket guide for mushrooms, but I know it’s edible and wild. Any guesses? It has little gills and they are so cute.

Chanterelle Quiche

Friday, October 17th, 2008

Chanterelle Custard/Quiche I finally made it to the store and bought some lecithin granules so I could make Wildman’s Chanterelle Custard. I was intrigued by the recipe and was a little scared to use half of my week’s harvest for a dish I’d never tested, but I’m proud to report it came out awesome. The […]

Double Bonus Mushroom: Cauliflower & Lobster Mushroom Soup Recipe

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

My wild mushroom week is overlapping into this week and I don’t mind. I made an earthy, delicious soup with my cauliflower mushrooms that I had to share. Their cooked texture makes me think of rice noodles. I think they would be fun with a stroganoff sauce over them or a Thai sauce. A simple […]
