Omnivores Say The Darndest Things!

August 17, 2014 • Living Vegan

First, a disclaimer.  Most omnivores are lovely people.  They may not understand the dietary and ethical choices I have made, but they respect them.  Most of the time, they ask reasonable, intelligent questions about my diet and I’m happy to provide answers. This post is not about those omnivores. This post is about the others… Read More ›

Easiest Ever Okra Etouffee! (Vegan, Gluten Free)

(0) Okra Etouffee

Okra can be a perplexing little vegetable. Cook it the same way you would most other vegetables, and you’re likely to wind up with a slimy mess. Frying it (whether in the breaded style of the American South, or the unbreaded, spice-laden style of India’s Bhindi Masala) yields delicious results but can take some serious… Read More ›

Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe

(2) Zada Janes Corner Cafe Charlotte NC

Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe (located in a former dry cleaners on Central Avenue in Charlotte, NC) is one of those bright, funky, Southern-style, breakfast-all-day places, similar to The Flying Biscuit or Tupelo Honey. Similar, but not the same. Zada Janes has far, far more vegetarian and vegan offerings than the Charlotte Tupelo Honey.  In fact,… Read More ›

Frugal Friday – Vegan Birthday Freebies

(12) Happy Birthday to Me

Recently, I celebrated another birthday.  (Which, for those who are wondering, puts me somewhere in between “younger than springtime” and “older than dirt.”) A long time ago, when we were both vegetarians, my partner signed us up for a number of “Birthday Freebies.”  Since our birthdays are close together, we were able to use our… Read More ›

Sunday Breakfast: Medu Vada Wraps

(4) medu vada with pita

Medu Vada is a popular South Indian fried snack made from urad dal (lentils) and traditionally served with sambar soup or coconut chutney. They remind me of savory, crispy little doughnuts. Although my South Indian friends insist they are not that difficult to make from scratch, I have not yet been courageous enough to try…. Read More ›
