No Comments 20 July 2011

This is a gorgeous dessert for holidays or  even after a special weeknight dinner. I wouldn’t have believed how easy it was if I didn’t watch this video.

Quick Instructions:

  1. Core and slice pineapple so that each slice has a hole.
  2. Spray grill pan with butter flavor Pam and heat till a drop of water sizzles in top of grill pan.
  3. Grill slices on both sides for several minutes till grill marks appear.

Make butter rum sauce:

  1. 2 tsp unsalted butter melted in a pan
  2. 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  3. stir in 1/4 cup rum
  4. stir all ingredients on low heat till smooth
  5. pour over ice cream that has been scooped on top of each pineapple slice.
  6. If you are reading this post from a Blackberry , get on over to a computer  and watch the video before the ice cream melts!

For ice cream that’s Vegan , kosher , organic , dairy free , gluten free , wheat free  and yeast free, try Luna and Larry’s organic Almond Fudge or Coconut Ice cream at Omni Health on Avenue U in Brooklyn. Check out their WEBSITE for healthy  ingredients, vitamins, supplements, wheat and gluten free products, as well as organic groceries and produce.

Healthy Vegan Broccoli Loaf

3 Comments 21 February 2011

The following recipes are from The Vegetarian Shabbat Cookbook

Micah Publications is the Source for Jewish Animal Rights and Vegetarian Books

~BROCCOLI  LOAF~

Broccoli is so healthy, that any way you eat it is good.   Prepare this loaf for a winter

Shabbat and bake potatoes and squash with it,  but make enough for the next day because

broccoli loaf at room temperature might be just the thing for a Shabbat afternoon lunch.

And serve it with the curried roasted potato salad, followed with spice cake.

Heat oven  375º

  • 3 cups of broccoli florets, steamed and pureed in food processor
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions or scallion
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1/2 cup vegan cheddar cheese
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of seasoning
  • sprinkle top with paprika
  • Optional:  pinch of nutmeg on top.

Oil  small loaf pan.  Mix all ingredients together.  Bake 40 minutes or until top browns, and there you are.  Could anything be easier?

Serves 4-5

Note: Nutritional yeast is light and flaky, rich in Vitamin B12, and adds a cheese flavor—

can be used in place of Parmesan cheese.

Going Vegan- The New Trend

Going Vegan- The New Trend

No Comments 02 February 2011

Have you heard? The whole world is going vegan! Well, not quite. But more and more, people are turning to veganism as a healthy way of life.

Veganism in a nutshell, is a diet without any animal products or bi-products– no meats, no dairy, no eggs. Some “black belt vegans” don’t even consume honey or wear leather, wool, or silk.

This might sound limiting, but if you’re a foodie, you can really get creative and put together delicious, satisfying and health-boosting meals.  In fact, your repertoire might actually grow!

The video above is great snack for a beginner  -Easy Roasted Chickpeas!

Nowadays we are lucky to live in an age where there is a tasty substitute for every animal based product. Now, some people love fake meats (me!), while others despise them with a fiery passion and stick with the basics — making the most of grains, fruits and vegetables. That, of course, is okay too.

The benefits of giving up animal products are many. Veganism has been proven to help combat high cholesterol and high blood pressure, diabetes and various cancers!

Vegan foods are, by nature, cholesterol free, and a diet based on grains, roots, fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans make you smarter, more attractive and immortal. Okay maybe that last part was a bit of hyperbole, but if you do it right you will feel noticeable better (if a bit gassy at first. Be forewarned, this can be a side effect of changes in diet.), Get enough protein from tofu, seitan and other meat substitutes, and animals everywhere will be extra nice to you (They can smell it, I swear).

Wondering what the difference is between vegan and vegetarian? Check Dr. Weil’s daily blog for answers.

Whether you’re just interested in sampling veganism or are committing to it forever, there are a loads of books to peruse,

kosher vegan foods to taste , and kosher vegan restaurants to try.

There are a ton of delicious vegan and vegetarian recipes HERE on The New York Times website.

For great breakfast ideas check out the kitchn’s 10 Vegan Breakfast Ideas.

And last but not least, if you are seriously contemplating never eating meat again, then read this.
