TVP Enchiladas

Journal

Sunday afternoon meal. Start by soaking 2C TVP in broth while you prep the sauce and other filling veggies (bell pepper, zucchini, beans, #whateverelseisinyourfridge). Make cashew crema.

Preheat the oven to 375°F and lightly grease a large pan or baking dish.

Once everything is ready, drain the tvp, maybe brown it in a pan for extra flavor and texture, and begin warming the tortillas by lightly frying them in oil. Keep the warmed tortillas soft by covering with a kitchen towel. Fill the tortillas, and place in the pan before smothering with the enchilada sauce. Bake for 20-25 minutes, let cool, and drizzle with cashew crema!

Breakfast Hash

Tofu scramble done right. Make sure to press/dry that tofu out so it can absorb all the good flavors. Start by browning the onions and then mushrooms, add the tofu and spices with some water to turn the spices into more of a marinade, then the rest of the veggies and cook until done. Vegan super tip: turmeric makes tofu turn yellow so it looks like eggs!

The 91st Academy Awards

Journal

For me, it’s the favourite season of the year…awards season! Can you ever forgive me? Come over to my apartment on a Sunday night (or late afternoon for you red carpet fashion fiends) to party with me and revel in the self-congratulating pageantry that is the Academy Awards. Without a host for the first time since the Cold War, the telecast is promised to be under three hours. Never look away or else you might miss the action! It will be incredible, too.

Feel free to come solo, or bring a friend to help you indulge in your favorite vices: aromatic vegan appetizers and stiff cocktails. I’ll have enough for everyone, so no need to shoplift pretzels from the gas station (unless you really want to). I’m trying extra hard to make sure the party is plastic-free and green! Book your RSVP now so I know how much food/drink to prepare.

Wear whatever you want! I bet Lady Gaga will be in something weird (Bohemian-chic?), but I’ll just be in a suit with a black pant. Her antics aside, Gaga seems like she’s just on the border of taking home her first Oscar this year!

  • mushroom and leek tartlets,
  • basmati-mint-lemon dolmas from scratch
  • tofu chèvre – one lavender, one herbed
