Free Vegan Cookies Reminder & Tarts with Webly

Reminder: This Saturday, 2pm - free cookies at Herbivore! Come sample some cookies I'll be making from Veganomican, plus a ton more from other fantastic PDX bakers.

Speaking of Herbivore, their new online edition is up for July, featuring my interview with Mr. Mrs. tofu of What the Hell Does a Vegan Eat Anyway? If do say so myself, it's a great read, and features a mac & cheez recipe, and links to more.

By the way, if you have any ideas on who/for/of my vegan blog interview-ees, feel free to comment or email me~

Webly and I made Raspberry Coconut cream tarts on the 4th, based on her coconut pie recipe.
The crust recipe is from the upcoming Veganomican.

I made a few extra crusts, and she made some impromptu apricot-mango yogurt tarts, topped with mango nectarine, kiwi and raspberries.

Webly also helped me create a marinade for this tofu of fresh parsley, basil, rosemary, olive oil, tamari, mustard, agave, pepper, roasted garlic and fresh garlic. The tofu was baked for 20 minutes at 425 with spray oil, then marinaded for an hour, then grilled. Must make this again!

Vegan yum yum grilled corn salsa, with black beans. My favorite yum yum recipe yet!



And the grilling (panning) begins....

Altogether we had: eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, portabella, garlic scapes, white mushrooms, tofu, tofurkey brats and yves good dogs.
Other than the portabellas, the vegetables were simply brushed with olive oil, garlic, pepper & sea salt.
The whole portabellas were marinaded overnight in red wine, balsamic vinegar, tamari, olive oil and fresh basil.


Eggplant-Tomato-Onion-Hazelnut Dip

The final of the fourth foods: salad

From last week - random dinner of whole wheat penne, fresh string beans and baby spinach, grilled tofu, portabella and sundried tomato and red wine marinara.

VeggieGirl said...

such gorgeous little tarts! too bad I am nowhere near Portland for that lovely vegan cookie gathering :0( be sure to post lots of pictures from the event!!

karla said...

you're making me oh-so-hungry! that tofu(that you made with webly) sounds so good.
i just finished making my cookies for the thing tomorrow. i'm sure it'll be fine but i don't think i did the best. mainly b/c i have this thing with leaving out parts of recipes....like nuts and raisins b/c i have a dislike for them. so half my pumpkin oatmeal have raisins and walnuts, other half look boring as hell.
see ya on the flip side, jess.

You CAN'T keep doing this to us, Jess. ;)

Enough tart pictures already! You are killing me!

I can't complain too much as I have neverending blackberries in my yard, and crab apples and plums.

How do you grill? Do you have a special grill pan or an indoor grill?

Please explain, your grilling always looks so yummy and that is one of the things I miss being veg!!

Thanks!!

karla - see you tommorow! I recently became grossed out by raisins in cookies, so..yeah.

vegan knitting - blackberries! in your yard?? call me jealous.

anonymous - get grilling! I actually have a typhoon cast iron split grill pan. only 13 or 14 bucks, too.

laura jesser said...

Wow, all your beautifully grilled veggies drive me crazy!!! And those tarts are beautiful too! Wish I could stop in for some of those free cookies...

Melody Polakow said...

Wow! Where to begin? those tarts...and the veggie and the tofu.. I want it all!

Holler said...

Mmmm, I liked the tarts! Drool, drool!

Vicki's Vegan Vice said...

I really need one of your Raspberry Coconut cream tarts! That would seriously hit the spot.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for your reply regarding the grill pan. Do you find that you need to use a lot of oil with it? What do you usually coat the pan with?

Sorry for the 20 questions!

Thank You!

Love those tarts..so fresh and summery. That tofu looks divine also, I'll have to try that!

bazu said...

mmmm... tarts...

erica said...

I second the "wow!". It's 2:10 so I suppose you're out dispersing cookies @ Herbivore. Too bad I am fasting this weekend, no cookies for me :( Grilled eggplant is, dare I say without sounding like a poseur, the bomb. And the raspberries. And the tofu. I have to eat "high protein" for a while while I'm doing the amalgam filling removal protocol, so I'm back on tofu and - of course - tempeh. Wait, was there no tempeh in this post? Whaaaat?

I like how this computer does no recognize the word tempeh, it wants me to write temper.

Taylor said...

As always, that's a crap load of yummy looking food!

Maria said...

Those tarts look delicious. Quit work, open a bakery... preferably back here in Davis Sq. Haha.

Kate said...

Amazing tarts and awesome pics!

Tofu Mom (AKA Tofu-n-Sprouts) said...

So no free cookies left to randomly fling up north to your fellow Pacific Northwest-ish-area blogger? Sad really, because I am quite sure I could SMELL all the wondermous baking going on...

Looks wonderful. And the marinated tofu and marinated portabellas... wooooooo...those look scrummy too!

Vegan_Noodle said...

The tarts looks amazing. And all the grilled veggies are making me hungry! Your tofu always looks so good....

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

Anonymous - I hope you get to read this - I use a light spray of organic buttery canola (spectrum) or olive oil on my grill pan at the beginning, and more through cooking if needed. Generally, I don't need it unless I'm grilled really dry veggies. I need to get myself a mister bottle!
