Spicy Rice with Black Eyed Peas

I will set the scene: Garlicky Collard Greens, Buddha’s Coleslaw, Baked Sweet Potatoes, and Spicy Rice with Black Eyed Peas. Needless to say, we threw down.  You might be thinking, “whoa, what’s up with rice and sweet potato? Isn’t that a lot of carbs?” My answer: Not if you have a little of both…HELLO! Just to give you a visual, my plate looks like this: A large portion of greens and coleslaw (and I mean large), a small sweet potato (no butter thank you), and a small portion of rice and peas. If you are a veggie like me, don’t scrimp too much on the rice and black eyed peas. The beans give you a nice serving of protein. Garlicky Greens Buddha’s Coleslaw If you are serving the rice to children, please skip the red pepper flakes. Basmati cooks quickly, so I make two batches (one spicy, one not) and save some for the next day. For the grown folk, rock the red pepper flakes, you will not be disappointed. The garlic and tomato paste give the rice a zesty, tangy edge that you will love. If you are hankering for a bit of meat, throw in some fried catfish [...]

Buckwheat Soba Stir Fry

Today’s post will be as quick as it takes to make this stir fry. This statement is not entirely accurate. The writing will take longer, but you’ll have a delicious meal in minutes. By time you cook, drain, and rinse your soba, your veggies will be ready to rock! Stir, serve, and enjoy a thoroughly cleansing meal. How simple is that?  It’s been a monster of a week with construction going on in the house: Builders in at the crack of dawn, knocking out the ceiling in our living room, stuccoing the outside of the house, tiling and plumbing bathrooms. Oy. This is the first peaceful Sunday in weeks, and I’m going to chill and read Toni Morrison’s “Beloved” with a nice cup of Earl Grey. I will post “before” and “after” photos soon!  Buckwheat Soba Stir Fry 8 oz package to buckwheat soba (I use Eden Brand) 2 tablespoons sesame oil for frying 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped 2 medium carrots, sliced in diagonals 3 inch piece of daikon, sliced into matchsticks 3 leaves dino kale, deveined and sliced lengthways 5 shiitake mushrooms, sliced 1 tablespoon gomasio to season (also by Eden) nama shoyu to season 1.

Jamaican Pumpkin and Seitan Stew

Jamaican Pumpkin and Seitan Stew is a wonderful main dish. As the weather cools down, stews are so satisfying, and easy to throw together. Wondering what seitan is? It’s made out of wheat gluten, and it is a nutritional powerhouse: 16 grams of protein, per 3.5 oz, which is 25% of the US Daily reference intake requirement (pretty much the protein as meat, and a much healthier alternative). Another example to hit the point home: Seitan has 40% more protein than 2 eggs! Think about that when you’re looking to cut down on fat intake. For all my friends that are making the transition to a vegetarian diet,  seitan’s texture is very similar to meat, and take flavor so well. Find it in 8 0z packs in the cold section at your nearest health food store. I like The Eden Brand.  Enjoy the West Indian flavors of curry powder, fresh ginger, cinnamon, with a splash of coconut giving the stew a mellow, sweet spiciness that is irresistible. Serve this dish with my Caribbean Rice and Peas, and your taste buds will be rockin’ and rollin’ all through dinner.     Pumpkin and Seitan Stew 3 tablespoons good olive oil 2 lbs [...]

Vegan Sweet Potato and Cranberry Muffins

Perfect for breakfast or teatime, Vegan Sweet Potato and Cranberry Muffins are moist and naturally sweetened with agave nectar. Cinnamon, Madagascar cloves, and ginger are distinctly autumnal spices that warm the soul. I have never been much of a sun bunny, so each year I look forward to cooler days, wrapping up for overcast beach walks and misty hikes in Laurel Canyon. My Mother in Law, Judy hand knit a beautiful pair of fingerless gloves for my birthday recently (do I frame them or wear them Juds?), and I will wear them with pride on these days. Yes, I will also join the notorious tribe of L.A. girls that wear wintry scarves with a t-shirt, jeans, and a pair of Vans (or worse: flip flops) when it’s 50 degrees outside. That’s a Southern California winter for ya folks. I’ll be sporting my new fingerless gloves, and snacking on spiced sweet potato muffins.  Vegan Sweet Potato and Cranberry Muffins 1 1/2 cup baked sweet potatoes, mashed and cooled 3/4 cup almond milk (rice milk or organic soy milk also work well) 1/3 cup water 1/2 cup agave nectar 1/4 cup canola oil 2 cups organic unbleached flour (delicious alternative: 1 cup of whole wheat [...]
