Hello all, I just joined the group and have an original recipe to share. 

Also, only yesterday I made available a vegan recipes book .pdf download.  Autumn + Winter Vegan Recipes, lots of holiday favorites too.

Yam and Shiitake Soup

makes 10 cups


3 garlic cloves

¼ of onion

5 shiitake + 1 portobello mushroom

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 very large jewel yam

1 small head broccoli

2 cups broth

6 cups water

1 teaspoon coriander

1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

½ – 1 teaspoon smoked paprika or chipotle, ½ teaspoon sage

2 teaspoons fresh thyme, 2 teaspoons fresh oregano, chopped

¼ cup nutritional yeast

1 package field roast apple sage sausage, sliced into ¼ inch slices

1 small bunch of kale

1 tablespoon coconut oil


For oil-free sautéing, saute garlic and onion in a little broth. Or sauté in sesame oil. Add mushrooms and continue to cook. Mash some of the sweet potatoes in the pan before adding broccoli. Add all of the additional ingredients except the sausage, kale, and coconut oil. Cook for about 30 minutes and then add the sausage cook for 10 minutes more or so, add kale and a spoon full of coconut oil. Cook covered until the kale wilts and is bright green.

Stir well and serve with plain unsweetened soy yogurt (Whole Soy & Co. is non-GMO).

Dino Sarma's impromptu recipe for chilli using TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein).

This week in the main chat window Dino and Jason had a conversation about cooking using TVP. During that conversation Dino offered this great recipe. A member suggested that it would be good to copy the recipe so it can more easily be shared. Thanks for the suggestion to do that, and thanks for the recipe.

Chilli with TVP.
Sautee onions, garlic, and thyme together in a stock pot, add cumin and
coriander, and cook till softened. Add a few peppers, some chiles, and a bit of chili powder. Sautee another 10 minutes. Add tomato paste, and cook with the veg for 4 minutes. Then throw in a bit of diced tomato, and the dry TVP along with some beer, and crank up the heat to high. The TVP will hydrate, the tomatoes will break down, and the beer will cook out the alcohol all at once. Mhmm! And then finish it off with a bit of tequila, and simmer for 15 minutes, and you're done. :-D No messy millions of pots to clean up. And while you're there? Might as well bake off a load of potatoes in the oven. And stuff them piled high with your freshly made chili. And make like a 2 second tofu sour cream,
buy whizzing a block of tofu, some lime juice, and a pinch of salt. And you can sautee buns in olive oil and garlic, and have croutons for your chili. Your house will smell awesome, you'll have enough food to feed a vegan army, and you've got leftovers. And all of it took less than 45 minutes! No need for five million hours of simmering. The TVP, when added dry, soaks up all the excess liquid (and flavour), and prevents you from having to simmer forever to get it thick. And cooking the ground spices with the onions and garlic releases the flavours quickly. Also, the beer and tequila bring out the alcohol soluble flavours.
Thanks Dino for the inpiration!!!

Good suggestion on requiring participants to produce a dish that would turn meat eaters vegan...
Comment by Kerry Baker on July 17, 2011 at 10:09
Hi Maynard.  I think vegan is appropriate.  Perhaps you can make it a challenge that they have to produce a dish that will turn meat eaters vegan?  I mean that in a fun sort of way but the test has to be if it is going to entice people who will not normally eat vegan.  I think doing something to encompass everyone will be the way to go, and people who normally eat meat will perhaps be more interested if there appears to be something in it for them.  And in the cooking make sure that the commentary includes nutritional information so people are getting the message that vegan is healthy.  Good luck sounds like a wonderful idea.

In Boston, Tzu Chi, the Chinese (Mandarin-speaking) vegetarian Buddhist  charitable organization wants (talked with me about starting) a vegetarian iron chef competition.  Some folks suggest that 'open kitchen' competition might be more appropriate for a smaller operation, like ours.  But they want to have it in or around Boston's Chinatown, and they want to give it a largely 'Chinese flavor' (well, they're Chinese, aren't they, and they want to give their teenage sons and daughters some culturally appropriate way to express their Chinese vegetarianism).  

So, we could agree that it could be all vegan.  Then, if we move forward, we WOULD agree that it WOULD be all vegan in the ingredients (though anyone could participate).

Any suggestions on how to REALLY proceed with this?  EMail me. 

I've e-mailed the list.

At OUR home, we see oatmeal every morning.  Might that count?

Thank you very much Kerry! I use almond milk and I guess this rice protein supplement would be really nice! And I did nto know the relationship between onions and B12, but I always take B12 vitamins.

@Lisa Viger: OMG!!! I checked your raw vegan blog and I am afraid the keyboard will never recuperate!!! I was drooling over the pictures and the ingredients. It all sounds wonderful! Now I have to buy a dehydrator, because it seems that I need it a lot! (Any brand/make is recommended?) Can't wait to try those salmon patties! And boy oh boy!! the chocolate ice cream!! Awesome!!

Hi. I take a vegan rice protein supplement which is nice when mixed with rice milk as a smoothie.  It is highly digestible and 80% protein so makes a good substitute when you are a bit low.  Also pea protein is good but personally I find it a little too hard to digest for my liking.  Also, if like me you really love onions and garlic and others from that family, it inhibits Vit B12 so you may need to ensure you are getting a B12 supplement.  I take a vegan B12 as well as I just love onions.  And yes thanks for the WikiBooks link, fantastic.  Cheers

@Lisa and Barbara: Thank you both so much also! Barbara, that WikiBooks link is a gold mine! And Lisa, I will definitively check your blog! You guys rock!!!
