Strawberry sunomono

2 cucumbers
A smallish basket of strawberries
Rice wine vinegar
Vegan sugar of sorts
Just a little bit of soy sauce
Honey (optional)
Black Sesame seeds

Peel the skin off of the cucumbers. Cut the cucumbers into super thin slices. Cut the strawberries in thin slices too. If they're huge strawberries then quarter them then slice. Mix together in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together equal parts of sugar and rice wine vinegar and a few drops of soy sauce. If the sugar doesn't dissolve fully, then add a tiny bit more vinegar but don't overdo it. If you're a honey-inclusive vegan, whisk a teaspoon of honey into this concoction.

Pour the sauce over the cucumbers and strawberries, mix, garnish with the black sesame seeds and voila! delicious cucumber salad.

Haitian Doughboys!

This is a pretty simple recipe - basically a funnel cake with 'naners and some delicious spices.


1 egg (I used egg replacer)
1 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
Pinch of salt
3 bananas pureed (or 6 apple bananas, which is what I used)
1/2 c. water
1/4 tsp. each of vanilla, cinnamon & nutmeg
Oil for frying!


Mix dry ingredients! Add wet ingredients! Fry! Coat in sugar! Devour!

I mashed my bananas by hand and found that they weren't mashed enough - so after mixing it all together I threw it in the blender to get a smoother consistency. The recipe says that it should be a thin, pancake batter consistency but mine came out fairly chunky (still pourable) and still worked like a charm.

I was going to post a real picture but I couldn't resist this one...

Black Bean Pomegranate Nachos


-can or two of black beans

-can of corn
-green onions

-1 bell pepper
-1 pomegranate
-whatever else you wanna toss in there

To Prepare:

1. Open & separate the pomegranate seeds from the pulp by breaking it all apart in a bowl of water.  The seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl & the pith will float on the top where you can scoop it out.

2. Finely chop the green onions and the bell pepper.

3. Dump chips in a dish and top with beans, corn, onions, & pepper and put in the oven for 5-10 mins

4. Take out and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds

5. YUM!

Ok, this is supposed to be a recipe blog, but lacking one at the moment, I'm gonna start it off with a vegan joke:

Q: Why did the tofu cross the road?
A: To prove he wasn't chicken.
