The holy culinary trinity

I swear by the holy trinity of cooking: salt, sugar and acid. If you feel like your dish is missing something, try adding one (or all) of the above! I got this tip from Sarah Britton’s cookbook, My New Roots.

Food discovery!

My friend Sara introduced me to the wonders of liquid halva! Just tahini sweetened with vegan honey or maple syrup! Effortlessly delicious.



1 apple, grated

1 medium-sized potato, sliced into small pieces

1 medium yellow onion, sliced

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tsp grated ginger

3-4 cups broth

1 packet of S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix (4 cubes)

1-2 tbsp vegan honey (e.g., Bee Free Honee or make your own) or sugar/sweetener to taste

Fried Seitan

3-4 homemade or store-bought seitan or tofu

1 cup flour

¾ cup soy milk

2 tbsp ground flaxseed

½ tsp Old Bay Seasoning

1 tsp garlic granules (note: different from garlic powder)

Salt and pepper, to taste
