My Sister’s Cafe

I was happy this past week to visit a café where I could not only eat a delicious vegan lunch, but support a good cause at the same time. My Sister’s Café opened on Capitol Mall a couple of years ago to support the work of My Sister’s House, which helps Asian and Pacific Islander survivors of domestic violence. I …

Culinerdy Cruzer Food Truck

I’ve been wanting to check out the Culinerdy Cruzer food truck for awhile now, but never seem to be in the same vicinity. My husband Phil and I finally caught up with the truck this weekend at Track 7 Brewing Co. near Curtis Park. I sent a tweet ahead of time to make sure there would be a vegan option, …

VEG

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, filled with friends, family, and lots of vegan treats!

Roasted Tofu

This is a fantastic recipe that can be the basis for many a meal this summer.  It is great as an actual roast (you could glaze it if you want), or sliced up cold on a sandwich, or smothered in BBQ sauce.  You could put the tofu in a smoker instead of roasting it.  INGREDIENTS– 1 pkg extra firm tofu …

Cranberry Christmas Cookies

This will probably be my last post until the new year, so here is a wonderfully crisp sugar cookie with a tart cranberry filling that are pretty easy to make.  There are many recipes of this kind of cookie floating around out there, so call them whatever you want (I went alliterative).  Usually these kinds of doughs are chilled and …

Slow-roasted Stuffed Leg of Lamb with a Basil Walnut Sauce: my first MasterChef/Woolworths recipe

Parsley, rosemary, anchovies and garlic perfume this slow-roasted ‘ball’ of lamb from the inside, with toasted almonds adding some interesting crunch. The sauce is a gentle pesto flavoured with walnuts, whose slight bitterness contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the lamb. I’ve blanched the basil and walnuts and roasted the garlic to create a soft, voluptuous paste, but you can …
