Learn to make amazing Falafel, Hummus, and Babaganoush
Even if you have not liked this in the past, give it a try. It comes out amazing. You can eat it with chips or pita like hummus. You can also dip the falafel in it or use as a sandwich topping. The Liquid smoke takes it over the edge.
This makes a basic amazing hummus that comes out perfect every time. Add shit to this for even more intense flavor explosion. Sundried tomatoes, basil and pine nuts... Roasted Red Pepper or Garlic? Whatever the hell you want.
This is an easy no work method for falafel from the various mixes in the store. The mixes are o.k. but can really be kicked up with some matzo meal.

This is a Vegan Grilled Cheese Shootout with a few widely available vegan cheeses
The contenders are Daiya Cheddar and Mozerella, Follow your Heart Cheddar and Mozerella, Tofutti American Slices, and Chao Creamy Origional.
The clear winner in my opinion was the Daiya Shreds. These are awesome but only if melted (usually in earth balance and coconut milk), or melted with other things in general. Still, you have to watch the quantity. Every shred matters and you can quickly use too much on pizza and other things.
The Chao Slices were my 2nd choice. I would try the other flavors, but maybe not the original again. It showed the most potential.
The vegan cheese world is changing semi annually so the future looks great.
In this video you will learn to make German Potato Salad (I have no idea if its German or not) and Vietnamese Summer Rolls with Peanut sauce.
These two dishes are served cold (or mostly cold in the summer rolls case).
Peanut sauce is the most incredible shit ever. You should make it and put it on everything.
If you do not feel like spending the time rolling them up. You can just take the inner ingredients minus the wrapping... and make a salad with them using the peanut sauce as the dressing.
Get the spring roll wrappers, rice noodles, fried onion, and fried garlic at the Asian store.
Pro Tip: Have a small herb garden and at least grow basil and mint. These are used in so many things from pesto to Asian foods. Its way cheaper to grow them and use them off the plant than to buy bags of fresh herbs all the time.
Many of you by now have heard of the company Vegan Cuts which sends out monthly boxes of various vegan products. This October I have partnered with them in showing you a sneak peek of the October snack box.
I have chosen 3 of the awesome snacks to show you which you will find in the October snack box.
1) Tasty brand Fruit snacks - these things fucking ruel
2) Flamous brand Zatar Chips - amazing chip to eat by itself or to dip in hummus
3) TCHO Chocolate Squares - "Because what the fuck would October be without some god damned chocolate squares" - TCHO that bit of marketing genius is on me, hire me for your next big marketing campaign.
Here we are making 2 types of fast vegan pizza using some store bought pizza dough and crescent rolls. These are fast to make, cheap, and really easy.
You can also use the crescent rolls (or either) to make vegan hot dog rolls.
I like to dip the pizza in a garlic dipping sauce made from melting vegan butter together with garlic powder, and if I feel like making it, to dip the vegan hot dog rolls into a vegan cheese sauce (from the nacho and taco episode)
Here is the first vlog episode on my series of "Do-able Veganism"
The purpose of these are to show what you can just go into the store and purchase things you might not have known was vegan, or possibly never knew existed.
This is not meant to show a full "from scratch" meal, as very few people eat each and every meal completely from scratch. I will also start doing a cost analysis on the food to break it down on a per meal cost.
This episode focuses on Vegan Dim Sum. Dim sum (also called Yum Cha) is a range of Asian dishes including but not limited to steamed buns, dumplings, spring rolls, and other "tapas" or "light bites" that are often served during specific days or times of days at some restaurants.
The steamed buns are often filled with some kind of filling similar to the dumplings.
I am a huge dim sum fan so I hope you learn something or get some inspiration from this.
Lets say you get the various things in this video. You do not always have to eat them all as a dim sum meal just like this.
Other ideas would be to use each individually as a side dish to another main course. Since they are so easy to make, they are a good candidate for a side dish.
You can also fry up some spring rolls, cut them up into bite size pieces, and just toss them into a noodle stirfry (such as in episode 4). They add an amazing contribution to a dish just eaten right in it.
The dumplings can be quickly tossed in soup to give it more substance and flavor.
This is a complete walkthrough on how to make Chipotle Vegan Fajitas and Chipotle 3 Bean Vegan Chili.
Both of these meals are amazing even without the chipotle peppers so if finding them is holding you back, just make these without.
For the vegan fajitas, its best if you made the rest of the fajita spread in advance or else that will be a lot of cooking that night. Black beans save and reheat well, so does the rice. The guac you should make fresh.
Vegan Chili Is great, but whenever you make chili you have a ton of it. This gives some ideas of what to do with the leftover chili such as vegan chili cheese dogs (just get a vegan hot dog, boil it, and slap it on), vegan chili cheese waffle fries, vegan chilli cheese burger, and more.
The 3 Beans used in the chili are Black Beans, Chick peas (garbanzo beans), and Kidney beans (or you can use small red beans). I washed and drained all of these in a pasta strainer.
-- Note I used 10 cups of water with the matzo ball soup. The rest of the measurements are somewhat irrelevant
The first 2 take the least amount of time, and the last one requires a bit more effort (and Ener-g brand egg replacer powder) but is well worth it. All in All the matzo ball soup probably takes 45 minutes to make but makes a crap ton of meals.
Divided over the number of meals the time per meal is very little.
Another example of how vegan food is cheap, easy, and fast.
This is a complete walkthrough on how to make a vegan lasagna.
Tahini sauce is used instead of any cheese or "analoge cheese substitute"
Tahini sauce is very different from Tahini, though both are often called "Tahini"
Tahini is sesame butter (ground up sesame seeds), tahini sauce is tahini mixed with lemon juice, garlic, and salt. I used about 5 or so lemons in this. Not the 3 shown in the clip. You need plenty of lemon juice or elese it stays fairly bitter.
This is a complete instruction on how to make 3 different indian dishes.
1) Mung Bean Dal (really any dal) - These are Indian style lentils. Basically its like an indain mushy bean paste that goes great over rice or with an indian bread
2) Vegetable Pakoras - These are indian spices vegetables breaded and deep fried. They are incredible. You will not believe how good the Broccoli pakoras are until you taste one. Also included are onion and sweet potato pakoras.
3) Aloo Palak - This is an indian spinach and potato dish. Add a whole lot of earth balance (vegan butter substitute) or a rich oil like safflower oil at the end to give it a really rich and oily taste. This is kinda a Ghee (Clarified Butter) substiute that I use with indian cooking.
I was going to make parathas or nann with this since I eat almost every single indian meal with them. However this was getting to be a huge feast as it is and the pakoras can almost be like a bread substitue if you dip them in the other foods.
If you do not know about indian cooking or indian breads in general... go to a resturant now or try this at home. You are missing out in life.
Before you give me any shit about Tofurkey, know this. Their original product "the roast" is fucking amazing (especially with the gravy you will learn to make in this video). All of Tofurkey's other products just give the roast a bad name in my opinion. Do not judge the roast on the slices - they are different, or the hot dog/sausage like things - they are all different and kinda tasteless to me.
The roast is total fucking win (make your own stuffing... the stuffing inside is pretty good, but pepperidge farm stuffing out of the bag is better with just some vegetable broth and earth balance or other butter substitue)
I know holiday is spelt wrong... Who gives a fuck seriously.
This will make a great vegan thanksgiving or christmas meal. You can add the vegan mashed potatoes from episode 2, and other holiday things you want.
Celebrate the native american holocaust of thanksgiving the vegan way this year. Don't forget to cuddle up with a small pox blanket afterwards.
Maybe even celebrate christmas, the date of which is mentioned no where in the bible! Delicious truth to go on the side of your vegan feast.
This is a complete walkthrough on how to make vegan tempura asparagus sushi...as well as how to make other types of vegan sushi.
Not too much else to say besides, enjoy, thanks for the support and make this shit. Its REally REally Really fucking good. This will make serious quality sushi. I am big on taste more than appearance so if you want to learn a bunch of other fancy ways to roll sushi...im sure there are plenty of tutorials out there.
Don't Ask me...it looks the same as everything else once it hits my mouth.
This is a complete walkthrough on how to make the best Vegan Pad Thai Ever!
I tried to only use ingredients that are easily available. Tamarind paste or soup base is the only odd one in there. It can easily be purchaced at an asian grocery store...but wal mart might even have tamarind something. Even Tamarind Nectar will probably work. Just use less or no extra water.
You can also substitute some coconut milk for some of the water.
There will be no "recipe" given, watch the video to see the amounts, learn the concepts, and give it a try. To me Recipes intimidate people and take away your aspect of creation. They are ok in some respects, I just don't know many people that make things from recipes.
Btw, all of the armor is rubber, not leather.
I also realized that the amount of rice noodles is unclear- use approx 1/2 a pound
