NYC Vegan


My very own advance reader copy!

I have been a big fan of Ethan Ciment and Michael Suchman’s award-winning blog Vegan Mos since the first time I heard about it on the Our Hen House podcast. Miss M. begs me to make their Piña Colada Smoothie (Green Smoothie), I always make the Tzatiki Sauce when we have falafel, and the French Onion Soup would fool any omnivore! I even blogged about the Avgolemono Soup back in 2014!

Vegan Mos has always been the first place I’d turn to find a tried-and-true recipe for any occasion and I left many comments on their site asking when a cookbook would be written. When that time came and I was asked to be a recipe tester I agreed faster than a New York minute! Continue reading NYC Vegan

Avgolemono Soup from Vegan Mos

There’s not much to say in this blog post except, “Yum!”.  The star of tonight’s dinner was Avgolemono Soup from Vegan Mos.  Avgolemono may be a mouthful to say but I guarantee this vegan version of a Greek egg-lemon soup will be a delicious mouthful!

It was super easy to make too!  I made it using staples I always have on hand.  While you’re checking out the recipe, check out the rest of the Vegan Mos blog.  You’ll be glad you did!

The Days & CPG – Falafel Burgers

I love falafels!  They’re one of the few things I can eat at various summer festivals but I always have to tell them to hold the tzatziki sauce since it’s made with yogurt.

The Falafel Burgers in Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s The Vegan Table came together easily and I liked that the burgers were baked instead of fried.  We ate them without the bun and with this amazing tzatziki sauce from Vegan Mos (I love those guys!) instead of the sauce in Colleen’s recipe.  I added some fresh dill since we have an overabundance of it from our CSA box and that really added to the deliciousness of it.  

Psst…I’ll let you in on a little secret.  Dr. D. doesn’t like falafels so I told him they were chickpea burgers.  He enjoyed them but said they were a little dry while piling on more of that yummy sauce.  I thought they were very good but agreed that they were a bit on the dry side.  We’ll definitely make them again though!
