Can’t apologize enough for disappearing… but now I’m granting wishes!

Officially back for the summer, so send me requests. :)

    YEAH! Some more delicioous cooking awaits.

    I’d really like a vegan version of a traditional Quebecer meal, called the Tourtière. It also has potatoes in it sometimes (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/french-canadian-tourtiere/detail.aspx Totally non vegetarian nor vegan, but I guess it can be useful if you need an example)

    I’d have to agree it’s mainly a fall/holiday meal, but I’d really a somehow vegan version of this meaty pie or any other non-dessert pies.

    Welcome back!
    I don’t think you’ve done it before but maybe I’m wrong.. but could you show how to cook with seitan? Either that or I’d love to see a more in-depth lunchbox episode or the tourtiere sounds tasty!

    Hey good to see you back in the kitchen doing your thing. Do you know any mock vegan turkey/chicken salad recipes? There are these salads that I buy in the store but would love to make one at home.

    So glad you’re back! I’ve missed your posts! Anything raw and seasonal for summer would be fun, but I always love what you come up with.

    Glad to see you’re back after a winter of setting your priorities. I second the seitan. I love to cook it, cook with it, oh, and eat it. Show us what you can do!

    Also, still looking for the elusive perfect veggie burger that my meat eating friends won’t criticize.

    As always, great work!!

    Howdy, your cooking always looks so easy but it takes me forever to even cut up a butternut squash. How long do you think these delish little items would take *and* is there anyway to avoid the shortening?

      Hi Mimi. :)
      Sadly, these are way labor intensive… even with a couple extra sets of hands to help, from start to finish they take me around 3 hours. Sometimes I like to break up the prep-work by making the filling ahead of time and keeping it in the fridge (the extra is yummy over rice too!).
      About the shortening – I have seen some recipes use canola oil instead, not sure if the dough would get as fluffy but you could try it!

    This look delicious and even though they do look labor intensive, I have a four-year old who would just have a blast doing this with me as an afternoon project.

    I noticed the recipe yielded a lot of tamales. Can you freeze them? If so, what’s the best method for this and how do you defrost them?

      Not sure about freezing – but I have heard of people assembling tamales and keeping them in the fridge, then cooking them in small batches over the course of a week or two. Sounds like a good plan, haven’t had the chance to try it though… my family always eats them up right away. :P

    YES, you can definitely freeze tamales. Believe it or not makes for a long shelf life. Best way to defrost is to boil. Cover about half way with water and putting a lid on pot speeds up the process

    For Margaret, I am mexican and my mom sends me butter tamales from home (we live in different cities) and I always freeze them, they can last for like a year seriously, nothing happens to them.
    Tofu Guru, I am in love with your tamales! maybe I could try up sometime… I am kinda lazy and always eat the ones my mom sends… I made your peanutbutter apple pie once, it was amazing! thank you for being back! hope you had an awesome summer.
    And my request is for you to make something out of jackfruit I have seen recipes for like carnitas and stuff… so I am kind of intrigued by it. Here is the link for the recipe http://cleangreensimple.com/2011/06/jackfruit-carnitas/
