Hearty Vegan Tofu Scramble Recipe

This recipe is perfect for a laid-back weekend morning and is quick and easy to make. I actually find this even more flavorful than a regular egg scramble minus the guilt!  Tofu is such a blank slate so it’s really easy to cater it to your tastebuds.  I really love how moist this is too!

Aviary Review: Cocktails Well Worth the Hype

Is Aviary just fluff?  In my humble opinion, I thought the experience was worth every penny.  And I have had some glorious cocktails in my days.  The flavors were highly developed and were made to evolve throughout the night.  Of course you can get excellent and more affordable cocktails in other neighborhoods, but the presentation and service are truly remarkable at The Aviary.

Through a Vegan Studies Lens: My Chapter on Nonviolence and Veganism

While I primarily post vegetarian recipes and restaurant reviews, I am an academic at heart who is committed to making philosophy understood by a wider audience. Vegetarianism is not just a healthy way of eating for me, but it is a means of active resistance against the unethical factory-farming industry. It is a way of life, a means of resisting so many oppressive structures in our society – though of course much more needs to happen than solely veganism.

Veganuary and Dry January are just a few of the goals people have been undertaking as a means of cleansing, changing, renewing, and growing. How hard is it to cut something out of your diet or to radically transform your diet and your relationship with food?

Chicago Restaurant Week for Vegetarians and Pescatarians 2019

After doing some research and reviewing numerous restaurant week menus, I would say most restaurant week menus are not really made with pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans in mind. But there are a decent chunk of restaurants all over Chicago that have at least 1 pescatarian and/or vegetarian option on their prix-fixe menu. Here is a list I have compiled of the best restaurant week options for vegetarians and pescatarians…

The Best Vegetarian Chilaquiles Recipe

When I do make brunch at home, I am going for healthy and tasty.  So this is my interpretation of a somewhat healthy/tasty chilaquiles recipe.  I had leftover ingredients from enchiladas I made a few days before so I thought why not make a brunch version of an enchilada with my favorite part of the enchiladas…the red sauce!

Vegan Indian Eggplant Curry Recipe

I absolutely love Indian food and now that the weather is getting colder, I’m craving thick, hearty sauces even more than I usually do (which is usually a lot even when it’s the summer).  While Indian food has the reputation of being challenging to cook, it’s all about having the necessary spices on hand!  I have always found cooking with spices a very intuitive process, which lends itself really well to Indian cooking.

Girl & the Goat Review: A West Loop Haven for Meat Lovers, Accommodating for Pescatarians

Girl & the Goat seemed like this legendary restaurant that was so hard to get a reservation for.  I made a reservation here months ago for a Friday night at 10:15pm (the best time I could get).  Considering how busy this place is, I had very high expectations.  I watched Stephanie Izard on Top Chef years ago and was very excited to finally try her classic, legendary restaurant…
