The best thing about making a whole mess of veggie burgers is that you can do other stuff with them. Like tacos! Tacos rule. I started with a whole wheat tortilla, added some fried veggie burger stuff and topped with avocado, bean sprouts, black olives and salsa. Yummy. addthis_url = ‘http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thetravelingvegetarian.tv%2Fadventures-in-veggie-burgers-ii%2F’; addthis_title = ‘Adventures+in+Veggie+Burgers+II’; addthis_pub [...]

Occasionally, I get comments about how I should be adding recipes to my site, especially from my webmaster. Now, this is probably true, but I don’t do a lot of recipes here because a. There are so many great vegan recipe sites out there, b. I have a great resources page with links to some [...]

If you’re a Nashville resident and love eco-fashion, you have probably shopped at Ecology in Grace’s Plaza. Not only are the clothes beautiful, but they’re also made from eco-friendly fabrics like organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, recycled materials, peace silk, leather alternatives, etc. I’m a big fan of the cruelty-free handbags and other accessories!

For dessert, Breanna’s Vegan Pumpkin Pie. Oh, and wine of [...]

I recently discovered a really cool place in Nashville that happens to be up the street from me – Green Thumb Nursery & Landscape. A while back at the Ki of Life Gala I got to take home a lovely Phalaenopsis (moth orchid) and I needed a new pot to put it in. I figured [...]

I was talking to a friend last night about being vegan. I told him about my lunch at VegNews and how wonderful it is to sit at a table with seven other vegans enjoying a delicious cruelty-free meal created with love by friends. I told him about Vegetarian Summerfest and AR 2008 and how amazing [...]

Ahhh, Thanksgiving. The time of year when I get asked frequently about what I’m making and if I have any good recipes. Some might be surprised to find that I go the pretty traditional route on Thanksgiving. I mean, I guess Tofurky doesn’t seem traditional for some, but considering I’ve been enjoying it every year [...]

I just took a trip out to my homeland of Northern California for the San Francisco Green Festival. The journey had many highlights, but one that really stands out is my lunch with the VegNews Magazine crew. The weather was incredible and we got to sit outside on the sidewalk just steps away from the [...]
