Vegan Recipes




Here are a few of the vegan dishes I have concocted. They have been "refined" over time.






















Chili


Nuke the mushrooms for 3 mins or so (covered) and set aside. Fry the garlic, onions and peppers, adding the mushies during the last minute. Combine the mushrooms, onions, garlic, tomato sauce and spices. Cover. Nuke on high for 4 minutes. Add beans and tofu. Nuke for 5 minutes. Add black olives and chopped tomato. Serve on pasta or nacho chips - Old Dutch Restaurant Style are good.
















Spaghetti


Put the zuchinni and carrots in a casserole dish with a little water. Cover and microwave for 4 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes. Drain. Fry the garlic, onions, and peppers. Add to the spag sauce along with the zuchinni, carrots and spices. Microwave for 5 minutes. Add tofu, artichokes and asparagus. Microwave 3 minutes. Add chopped tomato and serve over angel hair pasta.


















Refried Beans and Rice


Put olive oil in a wok. Stir-fry the onion, peppers, ginger, and garlic, until the onions are translucent. Let the wok cool for a bit. Combine the spices, salsa, and water and place in the wok. Bring to a boil. Mix in the refried beans and corn. Add more water if necessary. Cook until desired consistency is reached. Serve with rice.

















Curried Potato and Chick peas


Microwave potato on high for 5-6 minutes and set aside. Boil 1 cup water, combine in blender with coconut. Squeeze out coconut milk and set aside. Put olive oil in a wok. Stir-fry the onion, peppers, ginger, and garlic, until the onions are semi-translucent. Let the wok cool for a bit. Combine the spices, chick peas, and coconut milk and place in the wok. Bring to a boil. Cook until desired consistency is reached (about 2 minutes at boil), adding some corn starch to thicken. Mash potato, combining all ingredients with rice.

















Beans on Pasta with Balsamic Vinegar


A very quick and tasty dish. Stir-fry the onion, peppers, and garlic, until the onions are semi-translucent. Add the spices, kidney beans, and water. Bring to a boil. Cook about 2 minutes at boil, finally adding some corn starch to thicken. Turn off heat. Mix in balsamic vinegar and serve over pasta.

















Pizza


Microwave the mushrooms for 4 minutes. Fry the onion, peppers, and garlic, until the onions are semi-translucent. Drain mushrooms. Add to frying pan and cook for 2 minutes. Spread pizza sauce over bread, mixing in spices. Add vegetables. Spread soy mozarella and top with the vegan rella. Cook in 425 degree oven for 14 minutes in a shallow pan.
