Vegan Fried "Chicken" with Mashed Potatoes and Brussel Spouts... and brownies

Well, my week of only cooking from recipes that I can give you from the web is over. So, tonight I cooked vegan fried "chicken" from a recipe in La Dolce Vegan by Sarah Kramer. It was really really good. There was no disagreement in the house about the fact that this was coming back again. We served it with mashed potatoes (made with soy milk and earth balance) and roasted garlicky brussel sprouts (from Vegan with Vengeance).

Yesterday we made brownies from Vive Le Vegan, by Dreena Burton. They are all gone. Here is a pic, for those of you who thought that vegans couldn't have brownies:

Our other interesting cooking experiment for the weekend was to make our own vegan cheese from a recipe in the Uncheese cookbook. We made a colby style. I haven't tasted it yet, but it smells really good. I'll let you know how it is. I have a few things planned for the vegan cheese this week. I'll try to remember to take some pictures of it.


  1. I just referred some people here who are thinking of going vegan, because you're so well informed I thought you'd be a good source for questions! *smooch* I need to have you over soon.

  2. p.s. Can you actually make brussels sprouts taste good? I love my veggies but I cannot seem to deal with those.

  3. You guys should instead come over and play wii!!!

    And I think I can make brussel sprouts taste good. I hate them any other way that they are prepared. I like to get them pretty well done in the oven and add chopped garlic near the end.

    And thanks for the hits.

  4. Yes, I'd love to come try the wii! We still can't find one around here :> We even tried getting in a super insane line at Best Buy one Sunday morning, but failed in our quest.

    Mmmm garlic.

  5. For MOFO this month, I thought it might be fun to look back through my old entries and pick out my favorites; recipes we really loved or recipes we keep coming back to week after week. I sadly don't have pics for all of them. I guess I'll have to make i
