Peanut Chutney

Peanut Chutney
On my recent trip to India, I feel in love with chutney of all kinds. I learned to make this peanut chutney while I was there. It is amazing with mini dosa, as pictured, or as a base for pizza. The spicy, savory peanut chutney is also great to eat alone with a spoon. Tasty!

Dinner at Seward Cafe



I had the pleasure of dining at Seward Cafe recently. They have many veg and vegan options clearly labeled on the menu. You walk up to the counter and write your order on a ticket before paying. They will then call out your name when your food is ready.

VegFest 2014 Posters


I had the pleasure of picking up the new batch of posters for Twin Cities VegFest 2014 recently. I am excited go this year; I have enjoyed the two previous years. See you there!

Delicious Dinner



Last night, I had the pleasure of dining at Gorkha Palace with a friend. I couldn't decide which of my two favorite entrees to get, so I ordered both the channa saag and the hariyo saag. They both are delicious with garlic roti.

The waitress at Gorkha was vegan and talked about her favorite places. She got me thinking about the tasty cupcakes at Hard Times Cafe.



After dinner, we popped over to Hard Times for dessert. A chocolate cherry muffin and a chocolate mint cupcake. The cupcake was really good and tasted like a thin mint cookie.

A fun night filled with a lot of tasty food.

Tasty Breakfast

Vegan Breakfast

This weekend, I had the pleasure of making a tasty breakfast for a friend. I made tofu scramble on a bed of mixed salad greens, hashbrowns, broiled carrots, and a sliced strawberry. It was delicious.

Vegan Breakfast

Lentil Sloppy Joes

Vegan Sloppy Joes

A friend asked me to make some sloppy joes, so I created this recipe. I’m happy with how it turned out and will make it again. It was hearty and tasty. I paired it with my cajun yam fries and served on a toasted whole wheat bun.

Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup

It has been cold and rainy for the last several days. My friend was coming over for dinner and wanted something warm and comforting. Soup it was! We both agreed this was the best butternut squash soup we’ve ever tasted. Thick and creamy, it hit the spot perfectly!
