Kate’s Buffalo Tofu Wings

Makes 16 wings photo styling by me, photo by Justin Limoges This recipe is from the Wings chapter of Fake Meat, and it’s the OG of vegan wingz. Let’s take a trip to the golden era of veganism, the 1990s. We were lousy with veggie burgers and scrambled tofu. Packages of vegan cheese didn’t even bother to advertise “IT MELTS” because we all knew it didn’t. And no one, but no one, even considered that a wing could be vegan. Except Kate’s Joint in Alphabet City. I could write a whole think-piece on the place, but let’s just focus on the buffalo wings. Fat rectangles of chewy tofu, coated in an her ..read more

Jacque’s Bouef Bourguignon

serves 6 to 8 photo styling by me, photo by Justin Limoges If you think Bouef Bourguignon you might automatically think Julia Child. But is Julia Child smiling down on us for this one? Probably not. But damn it’s still delicious. All the wine-kissed smoky satisfaction that you want in Bouef Bouruignon. It’s from the Beef Stew chapter of Fake Meat and it’s the recipe that finally got me to embrace jackfruit! All it took was a cast iron grill to change everything. Jackfruit is grilled and charred to rep the beef, along with its trusty sidekick, porcini mushrooms. Lentils add meaty body and smoke ..read more

Preorder Fake Meat!

My new cookbook is available for preorder! It’s out January 10th. Read all about it here. Fake Meat uses every vegan ingredient available to recreate classic meaty dishes at home. This was truly a labor of love. I created the recipes during lockdown, while everyone else was making sourdough. It was an interesting challenge, since ingredients weren’t always easy to come by, so I had the opportunity to get really creative. There’s plenty of tofu and seitan, but also fun ways to use cauliflower, mushrooms and artichokes to create flaky, juicy, meatiness. And fishiness. And chicky-ness. I even fo ..read more

Spicy Chocolate Cupcakes With Cayenne Candied Pecans

Baking season is upon us! And before we dive into pumpkin spice, let’s make a sweet stop at chili season.  Cayenne and chocolate is a tale as old as time. Or at least as old as Mayan civilization. These cupcakes will make you the talk of the chili festival. A little cayenne in the batter and a simple chocolate glaze are refined and elegant. Top with some spicy pecans, though, to really get everyone in the mood.  These are just a little spicy so as not to scare off anyone who absolutely can’t handle heat, but if you’re looking to really do some damage, just double the cayenne in both ..read more

Tomato Caprese With Almond Ricotta

Serves 4 First let’s get this pronounced correctly because you’re saying it wrong: “CA-PRAY-ZAY.”  Great. Moving on, I must tell you that the tomatoes are the most important element. So if it’s just not the season and you can’t find big, juicy, just-off-the vine ‘matos, then don’t bother. Now that those things are cleared up, let’s get CA-RAY-ZAY. Fresh basil, sweet balsamic reduction, olive oil and flaky sea salt make for the simplest but most sublime summer salad. Traditionally, mozzarella is the cheese of choice, but ricotta is not unheard of and almond ricotta is a nice introduction ..read more

Mango Porq Fried Rice

6M ago
Serves 4 Fried rice is a meal you can have every night of the week and never tire of. I’ve proven this point time and time again; it was my go to when ordering takeout for most of my life in Brooklyn. But the home cook has to get it right: keep the heat high enough to sear each ingredient. A wok is the ideal vessel, but a large cast iron is fine, too. There’s something so seductive about smoky meatiness with tropical juiciness and this fried rice satisfies with the combo of porq and mango. The flavor is zhuzhed up with ginger, lime and star anise for the most winningest formula. Getting the f ..read more

Fresh Mozz-Shew-Rella

makes 1 dozen balls “You eat with your eyes first.” Well, your eyes are about to feast. Yes, these mozzarella balls are creamy, tangy, and rich. But they are also absolutely beautiful, floating in brine, looking straight out of an Italian deli. “But how can I, who has never achieved anything in my life, make these?” you might wonder. And the answer isn’t years of study in a cheese cave. It’s an ice cream scoop, a high-speed blender, and some ice water. This method was perfected by Miyoko Schinner, of Miyoko’s cheese fame. Recipe notes: ~Make sure to use agar powder, not flakes. And if you wan ..read more

Peanut Lime Tempeh Wingz
Post Punk Kitchen

1y ago
Makes 16 wings It’s wing season! Any vegan ingredient I look at becomes a wing in my mind. Tempeh wings are magical not just because they’re so yummy, but also because breading isn’t necessary! They crisp up nicely when shallow fried all on their own, then just need to be smothered in sauce. If I were a wing sommelier, I would have a lot to say about the combination of tempeh and peanuts. Something like “tempeh’s funky and nutty flavor is contrasted yet enhanced by this sweet, tangy, surprisingly savory peanut sauce.” This recipe comes together quickly, in about 30 minutes; while the tempeh ..read more

Makes 6 big pancakes Some recipes make you question everything you thought you knew. Who am I? How did I get here? Is it a good place to be? The answer seems simple. I love pancakes. I love oatmeal. I love vegan sausages. But combining a million good things doesn’t always mean you will end up with a good thing. I mean, I love oil and I love water but you know the rest. So I fucked around and found out. And I am here to tell you: combining all these things leads to an even better thing. Pancakes that are savory, with a fluffy yet hearty texture. The most filling delicious breakfast! A steady ..read more

Truffled Almond Alfredo With Really Garlicky Broccoli
Post Punk Kitchen
by Isa Chandra
2y ago
Serves 4-ish (or two really hungries) Photo By VK Rees This alfredo is deceptively simple, but totally creamy with a hint of nuttiness. The almonds act a little bit different than cashews when blended, because they retain some of their texture reminiscent of hard cheese. Which is, of course, a must for Alfredo. Combined with a lil’ lemon and nooch, it gets the job done! I love to serve it with really really REALLY garlicky broccoli. The secret to getting it good and garlicky is adding the garlic at the end. That way the garlic doesn’t burn but you can take your time getting the broccoli cooke ..read more
