You make the best vegan dishes Rawkstah. That looks fantastic!

Thank you! It means a lot! I enjoy the challenge and I think cooking like this has made me become much better in the kitchen.  I've learned so much more about seasonings, I appreciate different vegetables, and I've gotten more creative (I have my own secrets now to flavor dishes without relying on cheese or meat).  I used to use cheese and/or eggs a lot in dishes as a fall back, but as I cooked more and learned, I now find it pretty unnecessary.  Of course there are certain dishes that just are hard to replicate without it, but these days its not terribly hard to find a substitute.  And the bonus is that most this stuff isn't as calorie dense as the non-veg counterpart so I get to eat A TON!  :drooling:


I don't follow recipes very well, but if you ever want me to try and recall a recipe let me know!  Most times I read a few recipes and decide how I'm going to go forward from there and I can provide the recipes I had looked at.

Hey everybody! Long time no post! I've been cooking a little bit more because my shoulder is messed up and I can't train... and this past week was particularly rough so stress relief = kitchen time.


Let's knock the not spicy stuff outta the way, I made yogurt for the first time... I'm psyched that it was so easy (and I made it with non dairy milk so its vegan!). I plan on making this often for use in creamy dishes and Indian food. Basically I mixed non dairy milk (Ripple brand) with a container of Silk almond milk yogurt, and put it in my Instant pot for 13 hours. 






Ok then, we get to the good stuff. My doggo's surgery got canceled early in the week because of the extreme cold here.  So I took the free evening to make fried seitan, collards, and mashed taters with mushroom gravy. 




And yesterday I made a vat of vegan jambalaya. 


the veggies


homemade spicy seitan sausage


everything ready to go into the oven





This pic is just for laughs.... when my dog is scared of rain/wind/apartment ghosts he needs to be as close to me as possible... he literally trying to lay/sit on my head and I wake up like this.

i made bulgogi with soy curls tonight and threw it in a bowl o rice for bibimbap.  The soy curls were rehydrated in broth and then marinated, cooked in a skillet and finished off in the broiler to get it a little crispy.  The marinade was garlic, ginger, a little white wine, asian pear, brown sugar, gochujang, mirin, sesame oil, and soy sauce, scallions and sesame seeds added as well. The bowl had sesame carrots and zucchini, spicy mushrooms, garlic collards and snap peas, slice red cabbage, peas, kimchi, and some mung beans I sprouted earlier this week.
