Sesame Ginger Fried Rice with Smoked Tofu

Pin It

As you may or may not know, I (Jessica) am probably the least vegan of the VP bunch.  Since we started this thing back in September 2009, I’ve kept a vegan kitchen at home, while wavering to the vegetarian side (gasp) while dining out.  I’m also the least culinarily (new word) gifted, opting most of Continue Reading …

Pasta in Lemon Cream Sauce

Pin It

The Vegan Project was recently asked to review a book!  Jessica was sent a copy of Melisser Elliott’s hot new book, The Vegan Girl’s Guide To Life.  I was browsing through it the other day at J’s house, going straight to the recipe section (of course), and had to snatch it up to try some Continue Reading …

Spinach-Pomegranate Salad with Poppyseed Dressing and Gardein Crispy Tenders|Sponsored Post

Pin It

This salad is delightful!  I just made this up today and I am really proud of this creation.  It has a few components but is fairly easy to assemble once everything is prepared.  It is packed full of iron from the spinach with loads of vitamin C from the Pomegranate seeds to aid in absorption. Continue Reading …

Open-faced Creamy Bacon and Tomato Mushroom Melt over Toasted Ancient Grain Bread

Pin It

This hearty open faced sandwich is perfect for brunch or even a light supper. The creamy, cheesy mushroom sauce is savoury and comforting, and is a perfect counterpoint to the bright and fresh tomatoes and smoky tempeh bacon. Putting the salt and pepper directly on the tomatoes brings out their lovely, rich flavour.

Vegan Greek Salad with Tofu Feta

Pin It

This vegan greek salad takes a little bit of planning but is so worth it!  Marinate the tofu the night before and it will be ready for lunch the next day.  It is surprisingly similar to feta cheese. Even our non-vegan friends marvelled at the resemblance! This is a very loose recipe and can easily Continue Reading …

Baba’s Borscht

Pin It

This recipe is a mesh between a couple of different baba recipes.  In reality, Babas make borscht with what they have on hand, or what is available thus, no two batches are ever the same, so feel free to improvise with your vegetables.  The constant is beets…

Between Two Slices: Smoked Tofu & Avocado

Pin It

We here at The Vegan Project believe in sandwiches.  We love the individuality that can be expressed through this seemingly simple medium.  To be perfectly honest, I don’t think I’ve ever made a bad sandwich. Nope.  Here is my latest creation and first addition to our sandwich series, ‘Between Two Slices’.

Mushroom and Cauliflower Quinoa

Pin It

Quinoa was considered the ‘mother of all grains’ by the Incas.  I might have to agree. It is extremely high in protein, and a complete one at that, and an excellent source of dietary fibre. It cooks with the same ratio as rice, though way easier in my opinion, and shares its ability to be Continue Reading …
