Almost exactly a year ago I posted a similar recipe on stuffed peppers. So, you’re probably asking why am I posting again?

Meatless Monday – Zucchini Muffins

I’ve picked exactly 2 zucchinis from my garden this year. Yes, that’s them in the photo above. Given the cooler weather we’ve had this summer, it’s not surprising, but it is disappointing.

Meatless Monday – Vegan “Meat” Loaf

I was looking for a recipe to use this package of TVP (textured vegetable protein) I’ve had sitting in my cupboard. What is TVP? Well, the ingredient list says “defatted soy flour”.

Spinach, Mushroom & White Bean Strudel

This marks my first time using phyllo dough!! I may be a geek, but this was seriously exciting to me. Somehow, I’ve always had “fear” of using it. I thought it was just too fragile to work with for someone as clumsy as I can be at times. The verdict is…it’s super easy to use. […] Read more…
