Chili Cheese Dogs

Tofu Pups, Amy’s spicy chili, and Daiya cheddar “cheese”. I didn’t have any buns so I just had them on a plate.

Recreating old favorites to be vegan and gluten-free

Everyone knows these, right?

Like pretty much everyone ever, I loved these. And I have found a way to make something that tastes just like them!

The format is different (ie no actual cone) but I think the taste is there. Vanilla ice cream topped with rice Chex cereal, Reese’s peanut butter sauce, and chocolate fudge sauce. It’s close enough for me!

One of the fudge brownies topped with Trader Joe’s vanilla soy ice cream, chocolate fudge, and peanut butter sauce. YUM!

New cooking ideas

I have, what I believe to be, a fantastic idea for lunch tomorrow. Sauteed red chard and spinach with onions and garlic ON A BAKED POTATO. With salt, pepper, and a little cayenne pepper sprinkled on top. How does that sound to you? I’m excited to try this.

Over the next week I will be experimenting with combination of the following foods:
– Red, rainbow, and Swiss chard
– Spinach
– Kale
– Potatoes
– Onions
– Artichokes
– Broccoli
– Pasta
– Yams
– Sweet potatoes
– Green beans
– Chick peas
– Diced tomatoes
– Black beans
– Pinto beans

And these spices, oils, and condiments:
– Olive oil
– Marinara sauce
– Peanut butter
– Canola oil
– Coconut oil
– Salt
– Pepper
– Garlic powder
– Cayenne powder
– Agave nectar
– Coriander seed powder
– Bacon flavored bits
– “Old World Central St. Seasoning”
– Thyme
– Parsley
– Oregano x3
– Adobo Seasoning
– Basil x2
– Thai Red Curry Seasoning
– Lemon pepper
– Rosemary needles
– Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
– Trllicherry dustless pepper large cracked grind
– Sweet Curry Powder
– Freshly ground Cumin seed
– Nutmeg
– Ginger
– Allspice
– Saigon Cassia Cinnamon
– Cloves
– Garam Masala Spice Mixture
– Lemon juice
– Tahini
– Ketchup
– Vegenaise
– Earth Balance

Any particularly tasty dishes jumping out at you that could be made from these things? I already have some ideas! On with the food fun!

In addition to Awesome Lunch, I will also be making cookies and kale chips! And some sort of Mexican food for dinner. I want corn tortillas and refried beans and rice and veggies with enchilada sauce. And maybe get some Daiya in on the action too. Mmmm. More and more, my recipes are ones I’m making up my own. Maybe I should be writing this down somewhere for a cookbook.

This post is about smoothies! I love making my own combinations, and I would like to share some of my favorites with you. Other than “one banana” none of these use measurements – add them according to taste. I usually use 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of soy milk, but you can use more or less depending on how thick you like your smoothies. Other than the bananas, I use frozen fruit. And as for the instructions – just put everything in a blender, and blend! Using my amounts of banana and soy milk you will get one serving, or two small ones. They’re perfect for throwing together in the morning for breakfast, and protein or other powders can be added to any of them. Any kind of milk can be used, but I most often have soy milk on hand. Almond milk and coconut milk also go great in smoothies. I haven’t tried hemp milk, but if that’s the milk you prefer I’m sure it will taste just fine too. These are very versatile! You can add or subtract the yoghurt from any as well, and you can use yoghurts made from either soy or coconut milk.

The beginning of my food adventure blog!

I’m a gluten-free vegan and I love to bake and cook! I’ll be using this blog to share my food and recipes with the world. Most of my baking recipes are from The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook, others are from various cookbooks, the internet, or entirely my own. All the entries before this one were transferred over from my LiveJournal.

The foods in this blog will contain NO:

Some may contain oats when I can find gluten-free ones. Enjoy!
