Sacred Chow in the Greenwich Village serves up some of the best vegan food in the New York. It says a lot that as a meat eater I crave their food. In business since 1995, we learned of this spot via Groupon two years ago. The restaurant features sandwiches, many Asian inspired entrees, and a […]

Pineapple Miso Cilantro Sauce Via Vegetarian Times

Post Superbowl (congrats Patriots), we happened to have leftover pineapple (from pizza) and cilantro (from nachos). After a bit of googling I came across this Vegetarian Times “sambal” which means sauce in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and other countries. We didn’t modify much from the original recipe except the amounts.

Review: Hi, I’m Skinny Sweet Potato Sticks (7oz)

Usually I don’t care for brands with skinny in the title. I made an exception for “Hi I’m Skinny” (HIS) because they’re sweet potato flavor and it doesn’t have any of the aforementioned imagery.  Also, it was on sale at the local Rite Aid for $2.50.  Calories conscious folks will be happy to read that […]
