  • Chili-Lime Tofu with Steamed Collards and Quinoa

    Here’s an incredibly delicious dish courtesy of VeganYumYum.  Tofu is covered in an amazing spicy/sweet/tart glaze, and piled atop a mound of greens and grains.  This particular version uses collard greens and quinoa, but this would work equally well with kale or chard on top of brown rice.  Honestly, the star is the tofu.  You […]

  • African Peanut Stew

  • Pumpkin Scones, a la Starbucks

    WTFOMG. I don’t know what to say about these. I love them. I hate them. I’m eating all of them, except for those that have already been eaten by Lisa.  Or the mysterious “mouse” that seems to be able to open the tupperware they’re in, take a few nibbles of one, and reseal it. These […]
