Yuba Tofu Skin Knots - White Wine with Herbes de ProvenceIn the world of vegan protein it can often be difficult to find a food option that is easy to make, offers exceptional flavor and texture and is minimally processed. You can usually pick two of these options. And you can almost forget about finger food that fits this category. Try making tofu cubes, tempeh chunks or seitan strips appeal as hors d'oeuvres at a large party and you’ll see what I mean. “What is this stuff?” Yuba knots are particularly interesting because they have the ability to be assembled into a freeform food while having a mixture of stringy, meaty and puff pastry characteristics, which keeps them from feeling too foreign.

How to make an airlock for a Ball jarFermenting foods is a great, rewarding hobby but you have to be careful because one day you might wake up, look around the room and see multiple vats of vegetables bubbling away in various parts of your home. For a second, you'll wonder how this came to be. Maybe your girlfriend or roommate will just come clean with you and flat out ask "why there are so many things fermenting around the house?" and "I wanted to have people over tonight but I don't know if I can because the house smells kind of funny".

Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese RecipeEvery major metropolitan city has its famous food item that begs to be enjoyed in an almost infinite amount of circumstances. San Francisco has its Mission burritos, Chicago has deep dish pizza, Philadelphia has cheesesteak. One of my favorite things about living in New York City is enjoying the simplicity of a bagel with vegan cream cheese. It doesn’t matter if you’re getting ready to go out and in need of a quick meal, you’re on your way home from the bar and need something to snack on, or it’s a Sunday afternoon and you’re just too lazy to do any cooking. A bagel and cream cheese always delivers.

Gracious Vegan GravyThis Gracious Vegan Gravy recipe uses almost every trick in the book to develop rich, complex, savory flavors for a result that's sure to impress and surprise even the most diehard carnivores. First, both flour and nutritional yeast flakes are toasted, bringing out their nuttiness. Onions are then caramelized with mushrooms, breaking out layers and layers of savoriness. Miso and garlic are added later to add another dimension and tie it all together. Then the whole mixture is simmered so the flour gelatinizes and thickens the mixture. It's finished with pepper and a dash of white wine vinegar. A perfect way to top off a vegetarian feast centerpiece like Stuffed Seitan.

Strawberry Rhubarb LiqueurThis liqueur is a great way to preserve the essence of strawberries so they can be enjoyed year-round in new and tasty ways. The perfect amount of orange zest unifies the tartness of rhubarb with the strawberries in this sweet liqueur which can be drizzled on vanilla ice cream, baked into cakes, pies or just enjoyed on its own. It's like strawberry rhubarb pie in a glass. Swirl it into an icy glass of soda water for a refreshing summer treat.

Ruby Red Grapefruit LiqueurPsst! Want to have one of the best liqueurs ever? You can make it yourself! Warning: you won't be able to look at those other fake fruit essence vodkas the same again. It will scar you for life in this way but it's worth it. This Ruby Red Grapefruit Liqueur recipe is like a Greyhound that's been reduced into a liqueur. Like a greyhound, the subtle sweet, acid and bitter flavor profile plays seductively and mysteriously well with alcohol. When my friend and I made this drink, closely related to limoncello, we were so taken aback by it's drinkability that we were stunned no one had brought something like it to market. But who needs to now that you can make it? A shot of this liqueur mixed into a glass of ice cold soda water takes the heat right out of a hot summer day.

This Pear Liqueur recipe is refreshingly smooth and tastes similar to Eau De Vie or Lillet. It's even better in many ways because it's ridiculously easy to make and is extremely affordable. Use the sweetest organic pears you can get your hands on for best results. If your pears are very intensely sweet, like the ones from my back yard, you can skip the sugar. If you're going for store bought pears or moderately sweet pears, consider adding some sugar to enhance the pear flavor and tie it in with the vodka. I find it frustrating that the window of time of pear ripeness is so small. Once minute they're sweet like candy, the next minute they're mealy and heading for the compost bin. This liqueur is the best way I know of to capture their flavor when it's at its peak and preserve it almost indefinitely.
