The Skinny on Soy ©Marie Oser 2016, Vegan Publishers

Soy. Mention its benefits in polite company and brace yourself for a barrage of questions and accusations directed at soy and all the products made from it.

For more than a dozen years now, posting soy recipes or articles is bound to elicit some hysterical comments from consumers frightened by an onslaught of anti-soy rhetoric from a small group of serial soy bashers

Soy has a long and venerable history spanning fifty centuries of Asian culture and has been the subject of more than seventy years of research in the scientific community.

As interest in the health benefits of soy intensified in the research community, the popularity of soyfoods skyrocketed and acceptance among mainstream consumers began to take hold. …read more of The Skinny on Soy Takes on Soy-Bashers! here

Pumpkin Walnut Brownies, Nutritious, Delicious and Vegan!

I like to usher in baking season with my very favorite brownie recipe.  A tribute to American’s favorite treat, these pumpkin brownies are moist, delicious and rich in healthful antioxidants.

Probably created at the beginning of the twentieth century in New England, brownie recipes traditionally call for lots of fat… as much as a full stick of butter (eight ounces) and squares of unsweetened baking chocolate, which is very high in saturated fat.

As a health conscious vegan, excess dietary fat is an issue of some concern, as most vegan desserts seem to contain high levels of fat.  In my kitchen, this is just not necessary!  …read more of Pumpkin Walnut Brownies, Nutritious, Delicious and Vegan! here

Braised Tofu Sriracha and Sesame Linguine are complimentary in taste texture and eye appeal. In a marriage saucy spice and comfort food, this is perfect pairing for an intimate dinner or a scaled up for a dinner party.

Braising is a cooking technique that begins with browning the main ingredient. Seasonings, veggies liquid are added, and simmered over low heat in a covered pan.

A wonderful cooking method for tofu, tempeh, seitan and/or a wide variety of vegetables, braising does not require much attention after the main ingredient is browned. Braising is great for entertaining as, once the heat is reduced, the cook can attend to other preparations and have more time for guests. …read more of Braised Tofu Sriracha and Sesame Linguine here
