WorldVegan Saturday: L is for Luxembourg

After a little siesta WorldVegan Saturday has made a triumphant return with this Special Sunday Breakfast Edition. When I woke up this morning the letter "L" was top of mind: London (that's not a country, stupid!), Lebanon, Liberia, Luxembourg: That's it! A country landlocked by some place famous for waffles, France, and Germany, which are famous for other reasons I'd rather not talk about. The best part about trying to throw this impromptu German brunch together was utilizing my Vegan McGuyver-ish super powers to piece together this incredible, face-melting, mind-blowing, fist-pumping experience (Toot-toot: that's my own horn I'm blowing).

So check it, VegHeads: kartoffelpuffer, or as us simple folk like to call it, "potato pancake," is a native dish to just about every country; every one is trying to claim it as their own, including me.


ChefMom made it over for coffee this morning so having her chefary (yes, I sure did just make that word up) skills in the kitchen was a huge contribution to the success of today's brunch. So, we made this kartoffelpuffer (gesundheit!) and topped it with a cashew cream and green onions. We served it with sliced roma tomatoes, pan-fried dulse, and my famous-ish Crock-Pot Apple Sauce. (well it has like 40 repins on pinterest...)

 

Kartoffelpuffer

2 small russet potatoes
2 small yams
1 onion
3 tbsp soy milk
5 tbsp golden whole wheat flour
salt, to taste
2 tbsp egg replacer
1 tbsp coconut oil, for pan-frying
  1. grate potatoes, yams, and onion
  2. squeeze as much liquid as possible out of the grated stuff
  3. add milk, flour, salt, and egg replacer and mix well
  4. melt coconut oil in a skillet.
  5. pour mash into the skillet and pat down to form one large pancake
  6. brown on both sides and transfer to a casserole dish packed tightly
  7. throw into a preheated 350 degree oven; bake about 10 minutes or so.

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day). 
Back to Vegan MoFo:I'll be…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
