Tzatziki (Vegan)
(no ratings)

This recipe, closely related to Iranian mast-o-khiar, is a cucumber salad, strongly flavored with garlic and dill, and meant to be served as a dressing for gyro sandwiches. Now, rest assured, there are as many TYPES of gyro as there are cooks. Some use cubed meat, some use a strongly-spiced meatloaf. Mine uses Seitan roll.

Vegan Hot Dogs
(no ratings)

Of all the things I miss, hot dogs have to be at the top of the list. I can pass up roast beef, Big T pork loin chop sandwiches, southern fried chicken...NOT hot dogs. I mean, I DO pass up hot dogs, but...there's that minor yearning. So, if, like me, you're having trouble with the past...make kinder, gentler hot dogs. And, lemme tell ya, brothers and sisters: these surprised even ME. BTW, these FREEZE real well. Make 'em ahead, nuke and enjoy!

Vegan Pizza
(no ratings)

!!!Note that the mixing/cooking time is 45 minutes; the actual RISING time for the dough is OVERNIGHT!!!
This was my first venture into strictly vegan cooking...COMPLETELY animal-product-free. And, it was SUPER. Even my mother-in-law liked it. A LOT. That speaks VOLUMES. If you're just starting out vegan, make sure that when you buy the cheese, you don't see the words "casein," "milk solids" or "whey" in the ingredients. Look for "vegetable rennet" in the ingredients, as well.
WEIGH the flour; 'cups' doesn't mean a rat's whisker to me; I use weight rather than mass, whenever possible, so I can accurately calculate nutritional values. I'm LIKE that.

I quit eating "things with feet" to get my MD off my back about cholesterol and blood pressure...and, because I married a pretty little thing 12 years younger than me. I mean, do the math: I'm older, so, statistically speaking, I should take a croak, before her. Well, I don't WANNA. But, foods like sausage are the paving stones of the road to hell, from a dietary standpoint. And, one of my favorite foods. So, here's a VERY viable substitute. You're going to need cheesecloth and stout string; dental floss will do.
Try this, and play with the spicing to make your own mouth happy. Trust me, it's darn near indistinguishable from traditional sausage. Except that it won't clog your heart.

Vegan Sandwich Loaf

Those other guys, showing off their stacked sammidges like WWE wrestling belts, and you're sucking wind, hanging on to a PB&J? Now, you can tell 'em ALL to kiss off, because here we have LUNCH STUFF! Slice it thinly, and stack SIX OUNCES (or, dial it back and make two, three ounce servings!) of pretty acceptable lunch meat substitute with your favorite non-dairy cheese, vegan mayo or what-have-you. G'wan...just because we're tree-huggers doesn't mean we hafta eat cardboard!

Seitan is sauted with cumin, tossed with roasted veggies and rice, then topped with a very rich guacamole for those days that you just have to have something a little extravagant

You know that craving you get? The sweet tooth you just can't cut loose? This little cake is fabulous for that! I make it about once every two weeks or so, and it's just enough to kill the craving, but not too much that it kills my diet!
