Hey thought I'd start a thread for October.........Sept was not so succesful, huh?
But I know we're all still here cuz I see our posts everywhere.
How is everyone?
So I started back vegan today, I just feel better when I am.
Already thinking of the holidays, I know, but it'll be dh's and our first holiday with the dc in our own house So what do you all cook, do? Any fun veg traditions?
Looking forward to an eventful October y'all!

i'm here! i wanted to ask you guys if anyone has made the Pumpkin Pie recipe out of How it All Vegan?? I made it tonite (as a test run for thanksgiving with the inlaws), and it's just a bit on the mushy side.. like it's not all the way set. i put it in for an extra 10 mins.. no help.. should i put it in longer next time, reduce the soy milk, what??

thanks!

My dh is the baker in the family so i can;t help you with the pie, but i will run it by him later.

We always do a 100% vegan Harvest Holiday aka Thanksgiving. I love the fact that my kids have never been to a 'traditional' fest with all the dead stuff. we will make stuffed tofu and mashed potatoes and stuffings and cranberry sauces and squash dishes and all the good stuff we can gather from the harvest of the fall crops.


We are moving from this polluted town back to our home in nm- totally off the grid and self sustaining. it will be a great change in our eating too- we will not have much refridgaration so we will not have the organic processed junk/fast food filling the freezer!!! i will be forced to cook from scratch- i am very excited for that.

The hard part is living with out running water- but you really learn to appreciate it and not take it for granted and waste it when you have to physically haul every drop of it into your house.
We are heading out there next week for a week and then making the move at the end of november--
mostly i am excited!!
Peace all- maria

Hi all! I'm new to this thread, and returning to a vegetarian diet after being off of it for awhile, so the support and recipe ideas will be much appreciated!
Have a great day, mamas!

the recipe calls for egg replacer, i think that's the only binder in it.. the rest is just pumpkin, soymilk, sugar, spices. should i put more egg replacer, or add arrow root as well???? i would love to have your dh's recipe for pumpkin pie!!

thanks!! i need vegan baker friends LOL

Hi, my family is a vegetarian family, but we often eat vegan. Shelley4, I use the egg replacer by ener-g, and it is potato starch. Arrowroot is a thickener, like cornstarch, but healthier. Potato starch is also used as a thickner in soups. If you figure out your recipe, would you please post it because I am interested in a good pumpkin pie.

Last year we stayed with our friends in LA and went to this vegan restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner. This year we're going there to but I want to cook. I love all of the fixin's sooooo much! I'm going to make:

tofurky
gravy
stuffing
green beans with onions and mushrooms
mashed potatoes
baked sweet potatoes with vegan marshmallows!!!!
apple pie
pumpkin pie with the new Double Rainbow Soy Cream Egg Nog ice cream!!!!

I can't wait!

Two years ago we went to my mother's house where: the fixings were rather a fiasco; she introduced my husband and I to the grown-up kids of her neighbors as "They're vegans", as if she was telling them we were gangsters, or something wierd; she was really passive-aggressive about having her piece of turkey, which we told her we didn't care if she had (and we didn't - it's her house). This time we'll do it better.

hmmm Thanksgiving! I am planning to make vegan pumpkin/sage/pecan ravioli (in red chili pasta) w/ garlic white bean sauce & acorn shepards pie for ds. still deciding on sides and desserts but we usually do a huge feast though it's usually just the 2 of us (now this year the 3 of us! ) we like to pig out and have done a vegan Thanksgiving for several years now (minus last year we went to a resort instead).

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

here is the shepards pie recipe...I will type/post the others soon!

Acorn Shepard's Pie

3 acorn squash
1 russet potato
2 tbsp. unsalted butter (we use earth balance but you could use olive oil as well)
1 onion
1 stalk celery
1 carrot
2 cloves garlic
1/2 c. mushrooms
1 c. meat subsitute (i plan to use black beans instead)
8oz tomato sauce
oregano
salt & pepper
1/4 c. parmesan (we'll use a nutritional yeast/sesame combo)

preheat oven to 400 and cut squash in halves. deseed and place face down on cookie sheets. bake until soft (30 min or so) scoop out squash.

boil potato (with skin) until mashable. add to squash.

chop all the remaining veggies finely.

saute onion celery and garlic (about 5 min) add spices, meat subsitute. cook 5 min then add tomatoe sauce. bring to a boil and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated.

(I plan to puree this at this point in the food processor as it will be for ds)

spoon the onion mixture into squash halves, top with 1/3 potato/squash mixture (or you can just layer in a baking dish if you prefer) sprinkle w/ cheese and bake until heated through (5-10 min)

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

Thanks rainbowmoon, that sounds delish
So what do you other vegans do when you go out for pizza? I mean, I don't want to order a whole one just for myself, so do you just opt out or do you take off all the cheese? Dd loves cheese pizza, and my mom has a family night once a week where we all go out for pizza.

WE don't go out for pizza. That being said, I recently went to a vegan food party hosted by people in my area veggie group and they told me that a sort-of-nearby pizzaria makes a vegan pizza (if you order a pie) that is really good.

So soon...Plus there is a place in the city that makes a pizza with the Follow Your Heart Vegan cheese. We've got to try that, too. I just wish there was a place really near that we could order take out from.....Dreams.....

You're in SF right Emily? We're in Alameda, whats the name of the pizza joint? I might check it out the next time I make my way over the bridge. Theres a spot in Berkely called Lane Splitter that makes a vegan calzone, it's yummy. You should check it ouut, don't know if you make it to Berkely much, but it's good stuff, and beer too

We in Portland are lucky with the vegan pizza thing. It's a Beautiful Pizza makes awsome pies and calzones with follow your heart. If that fails and we must have individual servings of pizza (as is often the case with dd) we usually just order the smallest one available, or a calzone with an extra veggie replacing the cheese.

I want to start a thread with recipes of people's favorite vegan "lazy meals." Sometimes I'm just too tired from running after kids all day to be creative. We end up eating a lot of spaghetti with red sauce and simple tofu scrambles and i'm bored!!!!!
Should I start it here or create a new thread?

Whatever you want to do. Why don't you start a new thread and we'll discuss here, maybe you'd get more responses. I really need some help too, dinner is pretty sad around my house because dh is at school most nights, so it can get pretty hectic and I'm usually lazy after being at work for 8 hours and then alone with the kids another 8, ykwim?

Ok. I'm trying to listen to the debate while doing this. Thank goodness I'm listening on the radio - I don't think I could take seeing Bush's face for that long.

Isosmom - I'm so glad that you enjoyed the pilaf! We had it two nights ago and it was sooooo good! Have you made it with the "chicken" topping? If not, you should because it makes it even better. Actually, I go to Berkely quite often. I live in San Rafael so it's easy to get over the bridge (except when they're doing all that construction...) I just read about Lanesplitter's yesterday and we were talking about going. Have you gone to Cha-Ya yet? We try to go there once a week. The place in the city is called Panhandle Pizza. The following comes from the "Ultimate Guide" to vegan and vegetarian businesses at the Bay Area Vegetarian group at www.bayareaveg.com

Address: 2077 Hayes Street , San Francisco
Neighborhood: Western Addition
Phone: (415) 750-0400
Hours: Lunch:Thu/Fri 11:30am 2:30pm; Dinner: 7 nights 4:30-11:00pm; Weekend: 3:00-11:00pm
Category: Restaurant/Food Vendor (Vegan Friendly)
Restaurant Type: Pizza
Average cost: $$
Accepts credit card: Yes
Parking: Street

Notes: Panhandle Pizza is the proverbial "hole in the wall." Occupying a very small storefront in the mainly residential area called the Western Addition. Very cozy (read: small) dining area (three tables plus some seating along one wall).
Now has vegan cheese pizza and offers free delivery.

BAV Review: We did a BAV pizza party. In an informal taste test of (vegan) pies from Panhandle Pizza & Pizza Orgasmica and 2 frozen brands, Panhandle was the overall favorite (and this was without the vegan cheeze).

Here's the recipie for the Pilaf. My mother used to make one like it and I loved it as a child. It's also REALLY CHEAP to make. I buy organic rice and lentils in bulk, which cost almost nothing. One thing is to make sure that you use a good vegetable broth or bullion cube. We use these "chicken" cubes from Australia (www.massel.com.au) which are amazing. Also, it's best to add a little less water than you think you'll need because you can always add more when you check it but no one (?) likes soupy rice.

Rice and Lentil Pilaf

Ingredients:

1/2 C Basmati Rice
1/2 C Green Lentils
1 medium yellow onion chopped
lots of garlic cloves diced
1 1/4 C veggie broth/water with bullion cubes
2 carrots in thick slices
1 celery sliced
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Olive Oil

Optional Veggies (red pepper, dandelion greens, etc.)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Sautee the garlic (I usually have about 6-8 cloves.) onions, carrots, and celery in olive oil about 10 minutes but stop before it gets actually soft. If using bell pepper, put handful in to sautee as well. Use a 1 qt pot for sauteeing.

While these are sauteeing:

Wash the rice and lentils and any extra veggies you're adding on top. When sautee is done, add rice and lentils and let cook for about 2 minutes on high stirring constantly. Then add veggie stock or water w/ bullion cubes, spices, and any extra veggies. Bring to a boil. Once boiled, turn off stovetop and transfer mixture to an oven-proof 1 qt casserole dish with lid. (or simply put a lid on the pot if it's oven-proof and pop it in the oven.)

Cook for about 25 minutes. Check halfway and stir it, checking to see if it needs more water. It usually doesn't. If it seems done, take it out of the oven and let it sit with the top on for about 5 more minutes.

It's easiest to sautee veggies in a pot that has a top and can be put in the oven. I don't have one, so I transfer the boiled mixture into a 1 Qt Le Creuset ceramic casserole dish that I've left in the oven to heat. I put a little water in it while it heats. That way the hot mixture goes into a hot container in a hot stove!!! But obviously the easier way is just to use an oven-proof pot to begin with.

We like the mixture of carrots and dandelion greens the best. It goes really well with meat substitutes. We like it with fake "fish" slices that we pop into the broiler for the last few minutes the pilaf is cooking. This was a really long description, but it's really quite easy and fast to make.

"Chicken topping"

Rip up one contained of White Wave "chicken style" seitan into small pieces. Chop up several garlic cloves, half of a red pepper, and half a medium yellow onion. Heat up olive oil covering the bottom of a frying pan until it's extremely hot. Add onion and garlic until partially cooked, then add the seitan and red pepper (with some paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, and tabasco) and cook until very well done, stirring often.

We serve this with the pilaf and it's extremely good.

That was DH's idea and it's soooo good! Also look at the pilaf recipe again since I changed a few things and I think it's better now. We drove past Lanesplitter's today on our way back from eating at Vic's indian food on Allston street and 5th. Soooo good! It's south indian - Dosas, Idlis, and all that.

I absolutely love Vic's. So good and cheap. I work on 4th St in Berkeley so I'm in that area all week long. I really like Cha-Ya. Have only been there once, going out to eat not so much anymore with the dc, y'know?

Oh, I know. Believe me, DH and I are doing our part to eat out as much as we can before we have them...hehehe. He likes going out to eat enough that I think we'll still go often once we have dc even if we have to figure out more "family-friendly" places to go. Obviously Millenium won't cut it. (We can't afford it now, anyway. We've gone once for dinner and go once in a while just for dessert and coffee.)

Yeah, Vic's is great. You should try, if you get the chance, Cafe Eritrea D'Afrique which is on Telegraph and 40th in Oakland. Their vegetarian platter is insanely good. The best Eritrean/Ethiopian food we've had (and we've tried a lot.)

Tonight we're making fajitas with that same chicken but with the chicken in larger pieces and the onions and red peppers in slices instead of diced.

darn you stupid west-coastians! We have Mexican food, fast food, mexican food... and... um... mexican food. I mean really, there's only so much cheese enchaladas I can take! The beans are of questionable lard-content, so I just avoid them.

Love2All, where in NM are you moving? Near me, I hope!

How funny, I was just thinking about Ethiopian and wondering if it was vegan on my way home just now. Yeah, I used to go to that place, I used to live on 41st Their honey wine is pretty good too.
Sorry dready, I know, veg food pretty much has sucked everywhere else I've been. Grilled cheese and fries anyone? :LOL

Yes, I tried the wine once when my best friend was visiting from Philly this summer and she got some.

I haven't asked yet (hehehe) but one time when we ordered it, they had added too much oil and you could tell it was oil and not butter. Plus, I can usually taste butter. So as far as I know, Cafe Eritrea is vegan. Some others are not but can be. It usually pays to ask.

Hi everyone, another veggie Mama stumbling in!

I'm Kathy, I'm a strict vegetarian but not completely vegan ~ no obvious egg/dairy/gelatin products, but do end up eating some trace dairy etc, in processed foods. DH and DD are both lacto-ovo, and we are expecting our second little veggie-bean this January

We've recently moved from a very veggie-friendly large, Canadian city to the deep South of good ol' AL! Whooooo, what a CHANGE as far as dining out goes, lol! Here, it's more a question of "what kind of animal fat would you like in your veggies?" heh heh... Thank goodness I like too cook!

I don't really have anything else in mind to add right now, but I wanted to join in and say Hi.
