Want to DIY Your Own Tofu? Here’s How!

12 Dec, 2015  |  by Amanda Spinosa

When presented with the idea of making tofu from scratch, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little intimidated. It seems like it would be a very intense process, but I’ll try anything once so I dove in head first with my fingers crossed. When my Make-Your-Own Tofu Kit from Morinaga arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to try it out. On their website, you can order all different types of kits ranging from silken to extra…

Cookin’ Up Lasooni Gobi (Vegan / Gluten-Free)

Lasooni Gobi

If I die young, bury me in curry, lay me down on a bed of garlic naan; I adore Indian food. Lasooni gobi/lehsuni gobhi/lasuni gobi, however you choose to spell it, is one of my favorite foods of all time. I was first exposed to it years and years ago at Jaipore Royal Indian Cuisine, which has a reputation for being the very best. Both fortunately and unfortunately for me, I live ten minutes away which my belly loves, but…

There are a lot of great things about writing this column but I have to say, the best part is having an excuse to fulfill my food cravings. I was desperately craving some grilled cauliflower steaks and since I haven’t shared my favorite summer version with you guys yet, it gave me the perfect reason to make them! These are full of smokey, savory flavor and are great served over some grains or even a big salad. Usually, I’ll half…

Best of Toronto Vegan Food & Drink Festival

8 Aug, 2015  |  by Megan Stulberg

words by Megan Stulberg  |  photos by Tyler Teal You know that line in the movie The Devil Wears Prada where Meryl Streep’s all “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.” That sums up how I feel, for the most part, about the meat-heavy menus at the street festivals that take over Toronto’s busiest streets during the summer months. I have never attended the overly hyped Taste of Danforth. I mean, I did end up at Taste of  Little Italy this year while…

Vegan Home Cooking with Gillian – Toasted Couscous Salad

7 Jul, 2015  |  by Gillian Kreft

In the summer, nothing is more appealing than a fast recipe that requires little cook time and big flavor. This salad is perfect for making ahead of time or throwing together for a quick lunch (you’ll have plenty of leftovers!) I love pairing it with some grilled tofu to make it more of a complete meal or mixing in some mixed greens to make a big salad. This recipe is super easy and takes about 15 minutes from start to…

Vegan Home Cookin’ with Gillian: Banana Carmel Cream Pie

Vegan Banana Carmel Cream Pie 1

It has been in the nineties for most of the last two weeks here in Denver, so cooking has been kept to a minimal. I set out to create a pie that requires minimal time in the oven (or none – if you decide to use a pre-made crust!) and very little ingredients. I have been dreaming of making something between a bananas foster and a banana cream pie and I’ve done it, and I’m in heaven. Ingredients: Banana “Cream”…

Choc Brownies: Your Prayers Have Been Answered

When the lovely people over at Choc., an LA/Brooklyn-based gluten-free, organic brownie company asked if they could send me some samples to taste and write about, I think I fell off of my chair. Not only have brownies been one of my very favorite sweet treats for the past twenty-three years of my life, I actually think “brownie” may have been my first word. I’m gonna be real with y’all, brownies are pretty easy to screw up. They are a…

Vegan Home Cooking with Gillian: Tofu Scramble

6 Jun, 2015  |  by Gillian Kreft

Breakfast and brunch foods are definitely my favorite things to eat. Pre-vegan, breakfast usually included eggs, potatoes, and some sort of protein. After I went vegan I was confused as to what I could eat for breakfast that wasn’t just oatmeal & fruit. That’s when my partner introduced me to tofu scramble – and my whole world changed. We play around with the recipe often but this one is a basic tofu scramble that we find ourselves using all the…
