Butternut Squash Gratin

As I said earlier today,  Vegan MoFo 2012 is drawing to a swift end and I'm totally going to miss all of you! If you think you might miss me too, don't fret! You can subscribe to my posts via email just by entering your email address in the box to the right, or you can use the facebooks to keep up with my mouth watering posts. Just because Vegan MoFo is coming to an end doesn't mean I am. I will continue marching forward with more vegan food porn for your eyeballs.

I have to say I have fully enjoyed myself during this vegan month of food. There have been some great dishes and some awful ones (y'all didn't hear about those, obviously).

Here are some of y'all's favorites:
Yam Falafel Gyros with Pumpkin Hummus
Butternut Squash Pot Pie
Broccoli Polenta Cakes
Deconstructed Baked Banana Split for One
Cheezy Creamy Broccoli Casserole
Buffalo Wangs with Ranch
Brussels Sprouts and Shrooms

But let me tell you this right now: this dish is my favorite of all favorites during this whole VeganMoFo thing! 

I would write about how foodgasmic it is but I can't seem to find my face. This dish melted it right off.

Don't just sit there, make this NOW! 


1 large butternut squash, peeled
1 large onion, sliced
2-4 tbsp oil
5 cloves of garlic, sliced
Cashew cream sauce (x3)

  1. Preheat your oven to 375. 
  2. Using a mandolin, slice the squash into thin discs of awesome. 
  3. Sauté the onions until tender and toss in the garlic. Don't let those lil suckers burn, but do let them get all nice and brown.
  4. In a 9x13 baking pan, spread 1/4 c of cashew cream sauce across the bottom. Top with an overlapping layer of butternut squash, then onions and top with cashew cream sauce. Continue layering until there is no more sauce. Top with butternut squash and brush with oil. 
  5. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. 
  6. Let it cool for a sec, then stuff your face.  


 P.s. we love your faces and want to see them! Like here or friend here.

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).

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…

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…
