Vegan Poutine

To make this awesomely fantastic recipe you will need to do the following:

  • Make some kick ass Potato Wedges.
  • While those are in the oven start your pot of vegan gravy. Homemade or canned mushroom gravy works really well; Or try my Miso Gravy …Yummers.
  • Once both of those are ready, all you need is Daiya to build an EPIC vegan poutine!!
Seriously, its all in the layering! Wedges, Daiya, Gravy, More Wedges, More Gravy, MOAR DAIYA!

Vegan Borscht

Borscht is a Ukrainian soup that is popular in many Eastern and Central European countries. In most of these countries, it is made with beetroot as the main ingredient, giving it a deep reddish-purple color. This was a soup primarily made by the poorer people, as beets were cheap but high in nutritional value. Eastern Europe is the origin for many of my favourite dishes. Probably because they contain tons of root vegetables and are very hearty. Those russian had to stay warm somehow, right?

I have an unfulfilled fantasy of eating borscht while a eastern european hottie plays the accordion for me, by candlelight… as I sip wine. Sooo if you happen to have an accordian-playing hottie hidden in your closet, toss him my way.Thanks.
