What This Vegan Eats

Thai coconut curry soup with potatoes, carrots, red bell peppers, zucchini, onions, garlic, green curry paste, galangal, coconut milk, organic brown sugar and a dash of Indian chili powder for extra heat.

Baked sweet potato, "Garlicky Cheezy Kale" and cranberry sauce

Oatmeal raisin-date cookies!

Baked potato topped with homemade seitan, roasted red pepper and zucchini, and some of the cooking liquid from the seitan.

Chopped Gardein "chicken" patty, pickles, hot banana peppers, pan-fried mushrooms, roasted garlic hummus, mustard on panini.

Mixed greens & herbs with zucchini, radishes, grape tomatoes, pickled hot banana peppers and ground flax, topped with a drizzle of lemon juice. A perfectly ripened pear.

Potato-bread stuffing casserole, baked sweet potato, Gardein patty, cranberry sauce, carrots & baby peas cooked with herbes salées.

Half an organic Fuji apple and a banana, sprinkled with lemon juice. Toasted whole wheat pita with organic unsalted/unsweetened peanut butter.

Cabbage soup with tomatoes, onions, green beans, mushrooms and seasoned with dill seed, dried chipotle and smoked paprika.

Fruit smoothie with frozen banana, raspberries, a few clementine oranges and some ground flax.

Small baked red potato, "boiled dinner" (cabbage, carrots & celery cooked with salt and a dash of liquid smoke), grape tomatoes.

Whole wheat peanut butter cookies!

Long macaroni (maccheroncelli?) with roasted garlic tomato sauce with onions, carrots, garlic, celery, green bell pepper, zucchini and fresh basil.

Nestled in between Xmas and New Year's, Canada Post's own version of Santa (minus the reindeer) brought me my very own copy of Vincent Guihan's new cookbook, New American Vegan. Look for a review, a shared recipe or two and possibly a giveaway over the next several weeks!

I'd totally eat that! Love the blog. I found you through a Twitter suggestion. You should pick 7-10 of your favorite blog posts and feature them on your sidebar because your archives are HUGE. I'd love to read more of your stuff, but I'm overwhelmed by your archives.

Wow! That all looks so yummy and visually appealing. How do you take such good pictures? I need to do better and make more yummy-looking meals for my family like you do.

The Casual Vegan, thanks! I've been wading through my archives, too, and you're right. I like your suggestion and will see what I can get done over the next week.

Nutribuff, thanks. It's all about the ingredients and natural lighting where possible. Whole foods are gorgeous to look at! :-)
