Meatless Monday Recipe: Vegan Olive & Mushroom Stromboli
Stromboli is one of those foods you can't really find all too often here on the West Coast, and yet it is also one of the foods I tend to find myself craving the most when I'm getting a little too nostalgic for my East Coast upbringing. I remember my father had a friend named George who would so often come to our house with large loaves of stromboli to share. My mother, as she was a dietician, seriously hated how often he did that because while stromboli is delicious, it is certainly not something you should let your children eat every single day! (It's essentially a baguette-length calzone, traditionally filled with meats and a whole lot of gooey mozzarella.) I wish I had this recipe for vegan stromboli back then. I feel like my mother would have found it to be the perfect compromise between the stromboli concept and her habit for keeping good nutrition in mind. Unlike traditional stromboli, it is completely cholesterol free and kicks out all the ham and pepperoni for an equally savory vegetarian filling. With that being said, you could easily add your own vegan pepperoni to this. Yves makes a great pepperoni that would work well in this. Also, Tofurkey deli slices or Veggie Garden meatballs would probably make a fun alternative filling too! Either way, this is a recipe your children are going to love, and you can honestly feel good about making. Vegan Olive & Mushroom Stromboli (Makes 1 loaf) INGREDIENTS: To Make the Dough - 1 cup warm water 1 7-gram package (or 2 1/2 teaspoons) active dry yeast 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more to coat the dough and bowl 1 tablespoon agave nectar Healthy pinch of salt 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting the work surface For the Filling - 1 tablespoon cornmeal 1 tablespoon olive oil 6 ounces (about 1 1/4 cups) cremini or white mushrooms, sliced Another healthy pinch of salt Black pepper to taste 1/4 cup kalamata or black olives, sliced 1 cup marinara sauce 1 cup Daiya mozzarella shreds (Follow Your Heart Mozzarella works well too.) 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons vegan parmesan-style topping, divided 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon plain soymilk (as an egg wash) 2 tablespoon fresh parsley Extra marinara sauce for dipping DIRECTIONS: 1) Preheat oven to 475 F. If you have a pizza stone, heat it with the oven. 2) To make the dough, combine water, yeast, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, agave nectar, and salt into a bowl. Gently mix it all together and let it sit for 5 minutes, until it starts to froth. This ensures the yeast is active and has not expired. 3) Add 2 cups of the flour and mix it up. You can do this by hand or in a stand mixer with a dough hook. Continue to slowly add the rest of the flour until you have a slightly sticky ball. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic. (This will take about 10 minutes by hand or 5 minutes on medium speed with a stand mixer.) After kneading, form it into a ball. 4) Coat a large bowl with olive oil. (The dough is going to double in size, so make sure the bowl is big enough.) Also coat the dough in olive oil. Put the dough in the bowl, cover it with a damp kitchen towel, and stash it someplace warm for 90 minutes for its first rise. 5) After the first rise, give the dough a couple of light, open-handed slaps to make it collapse so that it's flattened out. Then let it rise for 40 more minutes. Now your dough is ready to use and is the equivalent of 1 pound of store-bought dough. [Note: If you have a favorite store-bought pizza dough that you would prefer to use instead of making your own, make sure it is a pound's worth. Also, start your recipe from this point once you have preheated your oven to the above temperature.] 6) First, you want to begin by lightly dusting your work surface with cornmeal. Then, roll out pizza dough into a 10-by-14 rectangle. 7) In a skillet over medium heat, warm up some olive oil. Add your mushrooms, salt, and pepper, and cook until the mushrooms are softened and have released some of their liquid, about 5 minutes later. Remove from heat and stir in the olives. 8) Spread your marinara sauce evenly across the bottom 3/4 of the pizza dough, leaving margins of approximately 1 - 2 inches on the other 3 sides. Sprinkle both cheeses, onion powder, and garlic powder evenly on top of sauce, reserving 2 tablespoons of the parmesan topping. Next, spread the mushrooms and olives over sauce and cheese. 9) Starting at the long edge on the bottom, roll the dough as tightly as you can into a log. Pinch and fold the two ends and the seam to seal. With the seam side down, lightly brush the rolled up dough with the tablespoon of soymilk. Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan topping. 10) Using a sharp knife, cut 3 or 4 slits in the dough. This will prevent your log of deliciousness from ending up as an exploded log of non-deliciousness in your oven. Transfer to preheated oven and cook 10-12 minutes, until top is golden-brown. Remove and sprinkle with parsley. 11) Cool 5 minutes, slice, and serve with extra marinara.
Meatless Monday Recipe: Quick & Easy Pad Thai Spring Rolls
Making pad thai at home is deceptively easy, but making spring rolls is ridiculously fun! Combine both, and you have the pad thai tofu spring rolls below - a quick and creative meal you'll definitely find yourself making more than once. You should be able to find spring roll paper, tamarind, and chili garlic sauce in the ethnic food aisle of your local supermarket and most Asian grocers. 10-Ingredient Pad Thai Spring Rolls (Adapted From Minimalist Baker) MAKES 8 ROLLS INGREDIENTS: For The Spring Rolls - 14 ounces extra firm tofu 8 ounces white or brown rice noodles 8 - 10 white or brown rice spring roll papers 2 cups thinly sliced carrots 1 large handful fresh cilantro For The Sauce - 3 tablespoons tamarind concentrate 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce + more for tofu 3 - 4 tablespoons coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup 1/2 lime, juiced 1 - 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce + more for tofu For Serving (Optional) - Peanut sauce (Check out my Vegan DIY: Thai Peanut Sauce recipe card.) Sriracha Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wrap tofu in a clean towel. Set something heavy on top - such as a cast iron pan - to press out liquid for 15 minutes. Then cut into 1/2-inch wide rectangular strips. 2) Arrange tofu on the baking sheet, giving each piece some space so it can firm up. Bake for 28 - 30 minutes to dry and firm the tofu. For softer tofu, bake for 20 minutes. For firmer, bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Set aside. In the meantime, prep carrots, cilantro, and cook rice noodles according to package instructions, then drain and set aside. 3) To make the sauce, add tamarind, tamari, coconut sugar, lime and chili garlic sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once it begins bubbling, lower heat to low and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring frequently.Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more tamari or soy sauce for saltiness, chili garlic for heat, coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup for sweetness, or lime for acidity. Remove from heat and set aside. 4) Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add baked tofu and 1 teaspoon each chili garlic sauce and tamari or soy sauce, plus 1 tablespoon of the Pad Thai sauce. Sauté, stirring frequently, for 1 - 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. 5) Add cooked noodles to the still-hot pan over medium heat and add remaining Pad Thai sauce. Use tongs to disperse sauce and toss noodles. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside. 6) Assemble a station for preparing the spring rolls with a shallow bowl or plate (for dunking the rice paper), bring a kettle or pot of water to a boil (to cook the rice paper with), and a clean work surface (such as a large cutting board). Gather all ingredients and add hot water to the shallow bowl or pan. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes, then add 1 rice paper at a time and cook/soften for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Lift and let excess water drip off, then transfer to your clean work surface. 7) Top with pad thai noodles, tofu, carrots and cilantro, then roll over once, tuck in sides, and continue rolling all the way up. Place seam-side down on a serving plate or baking sheet and cover with a damp, room temperature towel to keep fresh. Continue until all spring rolls are prepared - about 8. 8) Serve as is with a bit more chili garlic sauce or sriracha! Another great addition is the aforementioned peanut sauce posted above. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Vegan Pastel De Tres Leches (Tres Leches Cake)
Growing up, I took a number of trips to Central Mexico. While my family is Middle Eastern by heritage, I have a lot of family who immigrated to the Coahuila region of Mexico instead of the United States, and because of this, our family somewhat incorporated various Mexican traditions and foods into our lives. When it's my mother's birthday, my father wakes her up with "Las Mañanitas". When my sister and I were little girls, my grandmother taught us Mexican nursery rhymes and children songs. Traditional Mexican food was some of our favorite go-to comfort food. Pan dulce, tamarindo candy, and fruit sprinkled with lime and Tajín were some of our favorite treats. And to this day, pastel de tres leches is my favorite dessert! Tres leches cake is usually made with three different types of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream. So I know what you're already thinking - how could you even make this vegan? Fortunately for vegans, we've already got three milks (even more!), and for this recipe, we use almond milk, soy milk, and coconut milk! Try it the next time you're wanting to add a delicious dessert to your spread of vegan Mexican food. It's definitely worth the effort! ------------------------------------------------------------ Vegan Pastel de Tres Leches (Tres Leches Cake) 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 cup vanilla almond milk 1/3 cup warm coconut oil 1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar 1 (15 ounce) can coconut milk (do not shake can before opening) Vanilla soy creamer 1.

Invert the cake onto a rimmed platter and poke holes on the top of the cake using a dowel. 8. Pour the creamer mixture all over the cake, using a spoon to evenly distribute the liquid and fill the holes in the cake. Set aside for 30 minutes for the liquid to soak in. 9. Use an electric hand mixer to whip the chilled coconut cream until fluffy. Spread whipped coconut cream over the cake. Slice and serve.
