It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and though I’m not throwing a party, I decided to make a little something special for my husband and me to enjoy while he watches the game and I sit in the recliner beside him and read a book (A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler, in case you want […] The post Guacamole Potato Skins appeared first on FatFree Vegan Kitchen.

Vegan Coconut Dal (Yellow or Red Lentils) with Spinach–So Quick, Easy, and Tasty

Yield: 6 servings I have made other versions of this Indian staple, so rich, colorful, and satisfying without being heavy, but this may be the easiest and most straight forward, not to mention tastiest. 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 medium onion, diced 2 large cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon curry powder (I used a fairly […]

Vegan Butternut Squash Gnocchi with Browned Sage Butter, Wilted Greens and Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Yield: approximately 32 gnocchi or 4 small-ish servings   Quite simply, this is possibly the best version of this type of”dream meal” I have ever tasted, much less prepared.  And, once the squash is roasted, it is surprisingly quick and easy.  I sage in the dough and the sauce, rubbed in the former, fresh in […]

Winter Squash Risotto

I love risotto. It’s such a comforting and rich dish that often gets overlooked because people think it takes a really long time to make. Or, it’s complicated. As I’ve talked about before, it’s really not that hard to make. This recipe gets the most out of your winter squash by simmering the seeds and […]

Vegan cosmetics review: Jen Joi Cosmetics

Jen Joi Cometics is a wonderful company I found on Etsy. Jennifer is the owner and she makes beautiful makeup that is all natural and mostly vegan. I think a few colors may not be vegan. I made sure that my choices were vegan. When I received my package, I was so surprised how big these samples are. Show More Summary

"Joe's Red Neck Chili", veganized.

I've had this funny little book called COWBOY CUISINE (Recipes From Around The World by Friends and Performers of Buffalo Bill's Wild West) for a while and I've been meaning to cook something from it even though it is VERY meat centric.

All The Foods!

Some food pics to get you hungry for the weekend! Dinner a movie. A brand of fake chicken I found at Target. I think it was called Simply Balanced or something. The frozen chicken strips looked weird but once you cook it up and add the teriyaki sauce, it looked nice and tasted nice too! Another dinner and a movie. Show More Summary

Vegan cruelty free cosmetics review: Brija Cosmetics

I know this is a food blog but being a vegan, there are other areas of my life that I have to watch out for animal products. It's impossible to avoid absolutely everything because animal by-products are used a lot in so many things. It's easier to go with what you can control. Show More Summary

A few foods I ate recently...

Gardein mandarin chicken with asian coleslaw, rice and broccoli. Another junk food cake made with Duncan Hines white cake mix, coconut cream flavored jello pudding mix and cashew milk. Served with Coco Whip. Pizza made with Trader Joe's dough and vegan mozzarella cheese plus some cheddar Follow Your Heart sprinkled in there. Was delicious!
