Gia Russa Sicilian Lemon Marmalade

GIA RUSSA SICILIAN LEMON MARMALADE Steve brought home this Sicilian Lemon Marmalade, knowing I like orange marmalade and most things Italian. I doubt I’m the only one who thinks lemon flavored product often tastes like bathroom deodorizer smells – to the point of offending the senses. Gia Russa usually has good product. Reliable. Wouldn’t hesitateContinue reading “Gia Russa Sicilian Lemon Marmalade”

KARMA BLEU DIP

GOOD KARMA AND SUPER BLEU BLEND Combine as much SUPER BLEU with GOOD KARMA ONION DIP as you like. It’s that simple. Transfer to dipping dish and serve with cracker of your choice. Today it was WHEAT THINS. Not too hard on the gums, just enough crisp. Use as appetizer or perk up a sandwichContinue reading “KARMA BLEU DIP”

COFFEE RICH

NON-DAIRY CREAMER. The non-dairy creamer that’s been on the market since 1946. GLOBAL. The closest tasting and feeling to real milk and cream out there. Comes frozen. Thaws easily. Use in place of milk or cream. I’ve used it for years with excellent results. It’s a RECIPE TURNER. Not just the creamy component, but theContinue reading “COFFEE RICH”

Pan-Fried Frozen Q-Tofu In Apricot Sauce

Pan-Fried Frozen Q-Tofu In Apricot Sauce Succulent is my first and last impression on these tender, juicy, different than any tofu I ever had, pillows of wonder! I already know what I’m going to get myself for Christmas – a case of them. Better start winding down the freezer now! Makes 4 appetizers or 2Continue reading “Pan-Fried Frozen Q-Tofu In Apricot Sauce”

Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog

“It’s tradition. In a move to make traditional ballpark food at Seattle Mariners games more desirable for flexitarian and vegetarian fans, the Seattle Mariners have partnered with Seattle-based Field Roast to bring an All- American vegetarian frankfurter and burger to the Safeco Field menu.” That was in 2012

CRISPY ONION SANDWICH

Make sure the bread is fresh (lightly toasted if you like), the lettuce is crisp and the tomatoes ripe! You hit the Trifecta! Makes 1, or as many as you want

My Favorite Creamy Dressings

DAIYA DOES IT ALL. Pick a dressing any dressing! They’re all superb! My go-to dressing is DAIYA BLUE CHEEZE! So many uses. Not just for salads: greens, coleslaw, potato, pasta/macaroni, veggie. 1- In many fat-free dishes all it takes is a Tablespoon of daiya Blue Cheeze drizzle over the top to pop it. 2- UseContinue reading “My Favorite Creamy Dressings”

MY PIZZA TO CRACKER EXPERIENCE

We Want Fresh Bread Or No Bread WE CAN DO NO BREAD. We’re just not going to do stale bread. Bakers sat on their animal-based laurels too long. They should have believed what was staring at them, that longer shelf lives were needed. They failed to do the research and development wanting to put allContinue reading “MY PIZZA TO CRACKER EXPERIENCE”

Buffalo Soy Delight Chicken Nuggets

Soy Delight had a few starts and stops during the pandemic, but they always seemed to make good on their promise that more is coming, because it always did.

ADD-ON And UPDATE 365 Oat-Based Whipped Topping – Food Cartels?

ORIGINAL ARTICLE ON THIS SITE: https://theanimal-freechef.com/2021/05/07/365-whipped-topping-whole-foods/ ADD ON TO REVIEW: What started out as a complicated-to-use product, became even more complicated several days later when I tried to use it again. The first day I used it, each time it worked like a charm – roll the bottom third of can under warm water, shakeContinue reading “ADD-ON And UPDATE 365 Oat-Based Whipped Topping – Food Cartels?”

365 Whipped Topping – WHOLE FOODS

CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT? Whipped cream made out of plants with no fat. FAT-FREE! Now, you need to read the can. You can shake forever and nothing comes out. Who would think that you have to run the bottom third of the can under warm tap water for 30 seconds before shaking then squirting. YesContinue reading “365 Whipped Topping – WHOLE FOODS”

Fried Cauliflower WHOLE FOODS

Steve was in that part of town today, so stopped in to have a look around at WHOLE FOODS. CAME HOME WITH LOTS OF GOODIES. A Mother’s Day gift early, since he’s going in for hip replacement surgery the morning after, so he’ll be doing prep work from now until then. One item was fromContinue reading “Fried Cauliflower WHOLE FOODS”

GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATE SAUCE

One might think that a company like GHIRARDELLI would manufacture a high end chocolate sauce. PREMIUM. PROFESSIONAL. That’s what it says on the label. If I wanted a cheap product that tasted and textured like glossy cocoa powder paste, I could have mixed some cocoa powder with sugar and water, heated then cooled it andContinue reading “GHIRARDELLI CHOCOLATE SAUCE”

Nada Moo Ice Cream Sundae

NADA MOO ICE CREAM SUNDAE This is one of those ‘don’t talk while you eat’ desserts. If you start talking it might just disappear into somebody else’s mouth. Protect your plate from pillagers. Wow. I’m in love with NADA MOO. I don’t know how you ended up in my test kitchen, but I’m glad youContinue reading “Nada Moo Ice Cream Sundae”

JUST MAYO

Unfortunately for me, since I love to try different flavors, out of all the flavors JUST, Inc. claims to sell I’ve only seen the original and chipotle. I tried the squeeze bottle, but recently happened upon the jar packaging and found it much more convenient. There’s a lot of waste in squeeze mayo bottles wherebyContinue reading “JUST MAYO”

So Delicious and CADO Meet in Chef Sharon’s Kitchen

Now I understand why Tom Brady of football fame likes avocado ice-cream. I think he’d like the OATMILK variety too made by So Delicious. Actually I think I might try to make a recipe using both OAT MILK and AVOCADO in one ice-cream extravaganza experience! Stay tuned. Hershey put out a thicker version of theirContinue reading “So Delicious and CADO Meet in Chef Sharon’s Kitchen”

BUSH’S CUBAN STYLE BLACK BEANS

BUSH’S CUBAN STYLE BLACK BEANS Steve brought these home. I never saw them before. He took them in his lunch mixed with rice and fire roasted tomatoes. I was about to throw the can when I noticed he left a few. One half cup exactly, but just enough to give them a hearty taste testContinue reading “BUSH’S CUBAN STYLE BLACK BEANS”

PIZZA HUT GOES BEYOND – Beyond Meat – Go Beyond®

• The pizza in the ad photo has animal cheese on it along with the animal-free sausage. They should have called it the half and half pizza instead of Beyond Pizza. TAFC Review: Steve emailed me a link to Pizza Hut that now was selling the Beyond Sausage Pizza. There’s a Pizza Hut right acrossContinue reading “PIZZA HUT GOES BEYOND – Beyond Meat – Go Beyond®”

Lilly’s Beyond Beef Skillet

LILLY’S BEYOND BEEF SKILLET BEYOND BEEF CRUMBLES sauteed in extra-virgin olive oil. Combined with tofu, peas, roasted peppers and vegan yeast. Seasoned with garlic, fennel, turmeric, smoked paprika and BLACK HIMALAYAN SALT. Lilly loves it!! Makes 6 cups

Spaghetti and Beyond Beef Nuggets

Delight Soy Chicken Soup

DELIGHT SOY CHICKEN SOUP If you can find Delight Soy chicken nuggets, it doesn’t take much to make a plant chicken soup, that actually tastes like animal-based chicken soup. Simple, soothing and beneficial to you – the organism! Which proves you don’t need the stewed chicken or the marrow from the bones when you’re sickContinue reading “Delight Soy Chicken Soup”

What Happened? Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles

Yes, that’s what I want to know. What happened to BEYOND MEAT beefy crumbles? Maybe it’s too old. Maybe the original recipe was changed. Maybe they’re getting rid of product that didn’t turn out so well. Whatever the reason, the last two times I tried this product – several months apart, bought at different storesContinue reading “What Happened? Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles”

OAT MILK SAVORY LIME SAUCE

OAT MILK SAVORY LIME SAUCE  Oat milk-based creamy lime sauce with garlic, tarragon and basil! Serve over veggies or pasta! Makes 2-1/2 cups

EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING BLEND

EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING BLEND by Our Family Since I’m boycotting bagels worldwide, I of course won’t let a bagel in the house. Well, Steve loves bagels, but he knew I meant business. So low and behold, he finds a loophole. His favorite bagel is the Mish Mash – a bagel with ‘everything’ sprinkled on it:Continue reading “EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING BLEND”

PAN-FRIED MAY WAH TUNA SALAD

PAN-FRIED MAY WAH TUNA SALAD MAY WAH TUNA sauteed in sesame oil with black and white sesame seeds, garlic and lemon. Combined with chopped steamed cauliflower, celery and apple. Tossed with a Smoked Paprika Dill Relish Mayo! Makes a little more than 4 cups

Nice! Pretzel Nuggets

Too much salt, not enough peanut butter. I didn’t know the peanut butter was there till Steve pointed it out. Then I had to search for it in the chew. With the crunch of the salt plus pretzel the peanut butter seemed nonexistent. I understand that the peanut butter can’t be creamy when wrapped inContinue reading “Nice! Pretzel Nuggets”

Lawsuit claims Burger King’s Impossible Whoppers are contaminated by meat

CNAP RESPONSE: Burger King’s claim that The Impossible Whopper is 100% Whopper and 0% beef is not true. It can’t be both. A 100% beef whopper is not 100% Impossible Whopper. A Whopper is defined as containing 100% animal product, namely beef. In addition, nobody calls a Whopper, a Whopper Sandwich. I’ve never heard it, exceptContinue reading “Lawsuit claims Burger King’s Impossible Whoppers are contaminated by meat”

The Story Behind our Beyond Sausage® Sandwich | Dunkin’

CNAP ClipBoard: Sometimes Steve stops at Dunkin’ for early morning coffee. This time he bought two of the new Beyond Sausage Sandwiches for two co-workers to try. They weren’t the vegan ones, since all they have on them is a patty and ketchup. And these guys weren’t vegan. One of the guys is Egyptian andContinue reading “The Story Behind our Beyond Sausage® Sandwich | Dunkin’”

Hilary’s SUPER CAULIFLOWER VEGGIE BURGERS

Hilary’s SUPER CAULIFLOWER VEGGIE BURGERS. They advertise as the world’s greatest veggie burger. The burger textures more like a mashed potato patty. The cauliflower was difficult to find. It needs more of a binding component. It mashed with a fork really easily. I didn’t put it on a bun. It would have been a waste.Continue reading “Hilary’s SUPER CAULIFLOWER VEGGIE BURGERS”

IMPOSSIBLE WHOPPER

This is the burger everybody’s been talking about and quite frankly, compared to the other Impossible Burgers I’ve had this hardly resembled it. There are two ways you can order this burger at Burger King cooked: either flame broiled, or microwaved for those who don’t want their burger cooked on the same surface an animalContinue reading “IMPOSSIBLE WHOPPER”
