Salads are absolutely NOT my favorite thing to eat, but I know I need to do better. Determined to overcome my salad challenged attitude, I began looking at various recipes on the web for chopped salads, and using several as a guide (to which I added my own twist of course) I came up with this great tasting blend of fresh corn, black beans, olives, peppers and avocado.

Black Bean and Seitan Grillers – Vegan Hamburger Recipe

| 04/21/2015 | Reply

This is a firm textured but moist, very flavorful burger that is tender, but won’t fall apart if you put it on a grill. Be warned! It has a rather shocking similarity to ground turkey – some claimed they had to “do a double-take” to make sure it wasn’t meat! But rest assured that this delicious looking AND TASTING vegan hamburger recipe will have you happy and feeling great about your cruelty free choice.

Crispy Spicy Popeye’s Chicken Style Vegan Fried Chicken

Crispy Spicy Popeye’s Chicken Style Vegan Fried Chicken

| 04/15/2015 | 7 Replies

If we want to present veganism as a viable alternative to omnivores, I feel the best way is to show them, not tell them. No lectures, no crazy dead animal pictures, no guilt trips about the planet or their health. I instead choose to motivate people by stirring their curiosity and eliminating their fear of change. I do that by showing them first hand that what vegans eat can be just as delicious as any meat-based counterpart. This Popeye’s style vegan fried chicken recipe does the trick!

This whole pepper sauce thing was unknown to me before I moved to Texas. There it’s as common on the table as salt and pepper — used on damn near everything. Though Crystal, Tapatio, Cholula, Sriracha and Tabasco are all very popular, they don’t compare to the hot pepper sauce you can make right in your own kitchen.
