Spinach Burgers and Fries with Gravy

The burgers are a great recipe from V Cuisine by Angeline Linardis. This is a Canadian book, so that's probably why I hadn't heard of it. It's a great book! The Lightened-Up Moussaka is possibly one of my favourite meals ever, and we're already made Bold Broiled Eggplant twice since xmas (when I got the book). The gravy is my favourite creamy miso gravy recipe.

Whole Wheat Vegan Cheesy Pigs!

My version of Vegan Lunchbox's version of goldfish crackers. I was out of white flour, and most other flours because of xmas baking, so these are a mixture of spelt, whole wheat and oatmeal flour. Oh, and I added some smoked paprika! They are delish but a little too much work to make very often. It's a big recipe and I got a bit bored of cutting out pigs and minipigs.

Spice Advice and Alanis

Dear vegan cooking geniuses, what do I do with smoked paprika? I begged for some for xmas.. without knowing how to use it.

Also, you should try the "peanut butter chocolate chip cake" in Vegan Express if you haven't yet. It is simple, oil/margarine free, and awesome.

and lastly, Alanis Morissette on her new (super healthy-style) vegan diet:

OK!: How did you come to choose Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s program?

I went to my favorite bookstore, Banyen Books and Sound, in Vancouver. I saw this book, Eat to Live, and I thought, that’s exactly what I want to do. I wasn’t interested in some fad diet that was unsustainable, like “lose 10 pounds in two weeks.” I don’t believe in diets; I think they’re short-term and a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. So I opened it and flipped through and thought the weight loss is incidental. The primary focus is disease prevention.


OK!: Why did you want to find a new eating plan?

"Longevity. I realized I want to live till I’m 120. There’s a lifestyle that I am how happily creating that can, as best as is possible, prevent most forms of cancer and other diseases."

Grapefruit-Noodle Salad wih Spicy Peanut Sauce

It doesn't look much like the classy photo of "Grapefruit-Soba Noodle Salad in Spicy Peanut Sauce" in this month's Vegetarian Times magazine, but it still tasted amazing! My edits: whole wheat fettucine instead of soba, no radishes and no cilantro.
