    have you ever seen a gallon of vegenaise in person?

    i spotted a dude with this epic vegenaise jar at a bar in burbank last week, and i couldn’t believe it. i was frightened and in awe all at the same time.

    what would YOU do with a gallon of vegenaise?!????!!!

  • so i finally got around to making a meal from the much raved about cookbook, veganomicon. i picked what appeared to be the easiest recipe in the book (i cannot cook), did some ingredient hunting at the local health food store, and i was in business. special thanks to your vegan mom for pointing me in the direction of nature mart for their bulk bins of vital wheat gluten.

    veganomicon’s black bean burger with sautéed mushrooms, sprouts, tomato, onion, avocado, vegenaise and colman’s english mustard.

    in the end, these burgers turned out great…although i was a little worried during the process. after i had done all my fancy ingredient shopping at nature mart and whole foods, while in ralphs i realized i’d forgotten to buy bread crumbs. argh!!—all the varieties they offered contained whey, nonfat dry milk, or (shudder) egg whites. i decided it wasn’t worth the trip in la traffic to the nearest health food store just for one ingredient, so i used crumbled up hamburger buns instead. i think this resulted in my patties falling apart a little bit, but i just kept cooking them (longer than the recipe suggested) and they turned out just dandy.

    i love food that causes me pain and makes my eyes water. so naturally, i find a typical potato salad rather dull. last night i came up with this recipe (adapted from many others) that’s extremely spicy, rich with flavor, and 100% vegan.

    here’s what you’ll need to make it happen:
    2 pounds of red potatoes
    4 stalks of celery
    1 red onion
    1 1/2 cups of vegenaise
    5 tablespoons of colman’s english mustard
    1 teaspoon of salt
    black pepper to taste (i use lots!)
