Vegan Mac n Cheese at S’MAC

Vegan Mac n Cheese at S’MAC

When S’Mac first opened its doors in New York’s East Village, I was among its fans. With a variety of cheeses and “mixins” to choose from, you could have a hand in your own comfort food creation, served up in a personal skillet straight out of the oven. Alas, S’Mac fell off my radar when I went from vegetarian to vegan. Until. A little over a week ago, a Facebook friend of a friend shared a picture from S’Mac. Oh — if only! I thought. So I posted a message to S’Mac’s Facebook page: “I would LOVE it if you would offer a vegan option… pretty please?” How elated was I when I received an almost immediate response with a link to S’Mac’s vegan section of the menu. YES! So here’s the deal: once you choose your skillet size, you’ll decide whether to fill it with traditional elbow macaroni, multi-grain, or gluten-free. Then you’ll select up to three ingredients from S’Mac’s vegetable and herb lists. I went with shitake mushrooms, broccoli, and roasted garlic; my husband Seth added jalapenos to his mix. Maybe your creation will include fresh rosemary or basil, or spinach with garlic. Once you place your order, the S’Mac crew works their magic. The velvety vegan cheese melts to perfection. And a fine layer of bread crumbs tops off all that smooth deliciousness with a delicate crust. Just feast your eyes on my dinner from last night: S’Mac Locations 345 E. 12th St. (between First & Second Ave.) 157 E. 33rd St. (between Lexington and Third Ave.) Kiosk at the corner of First Ave. and...

Scramble it up with The Vegg

Scramble it up with The Vegg

I’ve been hearing about The Vegg for a while now. Although there are plenty of easy alternatives to eggs, I’m always interested in what’s new. The Vegg is all-vegan, which is great news for the more than 250 million egg-laying hens in the US, most of whom spend their lives intensively confined inside barren wire cages. And since it’s made using 100% plant-based ingredients, it a cholesterol-free alternative — great news for humans, too. I’ve seen a few different pictures of what looks like a whole fried egg — a perfect yolk surrounded by white. Any vegan surely will appreciate the magnitude of this feat. I’m not exactly a morning person, though, so I decided to keep it simple for breakfast; rather than attempting a sunny-side up, I created a tofu scramble for two. This Scrambled Tofu recipe, featured on The Vegg web site, comes from The Vegetarian Recipe Club in the UK: Ingredients:  2- 4 tsp of Vegg flakes/powder 1 cup water olive oil (I used olive oil spray) 8 oz firm tofu 2 onions, finely chopped salt & pepper to taste Directions:  Blend together The Vegg flakes/power with the water and set aside. Spray a hot frying pan with olive oil spray, or use a tiny amount of oil or vegan margarine instead, then crumble in the tofu and add the onion. Cook it for about 5 minutes, stirring, so it starts to turn lightly golden. Mix in the cup of Vegg and cook it in with the scrambled tofu until it reaches a consistency you like. The longer you cook it, the firmer it will become. Serve on toast. Extra Goodness! Compassion Over Killing receives 10% of all profits from The Vegg — another reason to give it a try....

Field Roast Sausages & Frankfurters

Field Roast Sausages & Frankfurters

Most of the time, my vegan diet consists of whole foods — fruits, vegetables, and grains. Protein comes from quinoa, nuts, and legumes. Mock meats are reserved for special occasions, and I seldom go for the soy-based alternatives. But how about a sausage-and-peppers sandwich like the ones at the San Gennaro Festival? Or a hot dog when we’re watching a ball game? Field Roast sausages and frankfurters make it possible to enjoy some traditional food without any animals having to suffer for it. The grain meat sausages are soy-free (yay!), comprised of fresh vegetables like eggplant, gold potatoes, onions, and garlic. As with any sausage, however, it all comes down to the spices and seasoning — and Field Roast gets it right. The sausages come in three flavors: Italian: features fresh eggplant seasoned with fennel, red wine, garlic and sweet peppers Mexican Chipotle: smoked Chipotle peppers, Chili de Arbol peppers, fresh chopped garlic, sweet onions seasoned with cumin seed and oregano Smoked Apple Sage: savory blend of apples and sage; gold potatoes with a hint of hickory smoke And for baseball season? Field Roast Frankfurters are by far the best vegan dogs I’ve had. Whether you’re a mustard and sauerkraut girl like me, or prefer relish or jalapenos (my husband’s favorite fixin’), these hot dogs are my fave. I buy our Field Roast at the local Whole Foods and Sprouts markets, but you can enter your zip code on the Field Roast web site to find where to buy. * * * * * * * * * * * * That’s Italian! Sausage, Potatoes, Peppers & Onions Last night, I treated us to a veganized version of a quick but delicious dinner my mom used to make. Enjoy! Ingredients: 4 Italian Field Roast sausages 4-5 gold potatoes 1-2 green peppers 1 medium yellow onion 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice potatoes into quarters and place in a large pot with water. Bring to a boil, and boil for only about 3 minutes (don’t let the potatoes get too soft!) Slice peppers & onions and place in a oven-safe deep dish. Add potatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and toss mixture. Place on middle rack of oven, uncovered, and bake for 40-45 minutes. When the mix in the oven is almost done, cook the Field Roast sausages on the stove top according to directions. We use a little olive oil in a skillet, moving the sausages around so they don’t burn. Browning the sausages will take 3-4 minutes. Once done, slice the sausages into small discs. Actually, I cut up the sausages using...

For Dancers: Cruelty-Free Footwear

For Dancers: Cruelty-Free Footwear

I put on my first pair of ballet slippers before the age of three. When asked to write an essay for a college application about my three most prized possessions, I included a description of an old pair of tap shoes that I wore for the Dance Educators of America National Competition (we took home first place). My old-school white oxford jazz shoes — more scuffs than shoe, after more than a decade of slides and pirouettes — took me a little longer to replace than most of my leather shoes when I decided to make my closet cruelty-free. Vegan alternatives for dance footwear aren’t as plentiful as I would like them to be, but I’m happy to report that there are now some good options available for those of us who know firsthand that dancing feet are happy feet. Here are my favorites, for dancers of all ages: Ballet: Cynthia King Vegan Ballet Slippers cynthiakingdance.com Pointe: Grishko custom-made grishko.com Jazz: Capezio DanSneakers capezio.com *Tap Shoes: Capezio will make vegan tap shoes upon special order. capezio.com...

Woody Harrelson Talks About Fur

Earlier this week, I wrote about the wool industry. Today, I’m sharing this fantastic 3-minute video that The Humane Society of the United States just released this week about the fur industry. I love the idea of using a kid’s stuffed animal to illustrate the key points — sparing us the haunting images of real animals exploited for their fur. So many more people will be open to watching and sharing. Once you’ve watched the video, check out my previous post Fur-Free, Faux Fur, and “Faux” that includes some awesome alternatives (and a super-cute video clip of me with my then four year-old nephew). With so many fashionable options available now, saying NO to the fur industry is one of the easiest ways to go cruelty-free. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7iD6jzWZkPs&w=600]   A special shout-out to my dear friend Michelle and her colleagues of the HSUS Fur-Free Campaign for doing such amazing work on behalf of the animals. I’m truly blessed to have such talented and compassionate friends inspiring me each...
