Vegan Thanksgiving In Los Angeles!

by Sarah E. November 28, 2011

My brother Asher's backyard and our vegan Thanksgiving spread

This year, my brother Asher hosted vegan Thanksgiving for my family at his home in Echo Park, Los Angeles. Since Asher had graciously agreed to host the shindig, he pulled rank and elected to cater the entire gathering vegan. Besides yours truly, several in attendance were vegan, including my big bro, and Courtney, however the majority of the gang was not used to going Turkey-free! Luckily, my omnivorous family consented to eating an all veg Thanksgiving meal, and we were all pleased by the spread of raw crackers, vegan cheeses, baked Mac N Cheese, “Not Meat Loaf,” hummus, mashed sweet potatoes, scalloped potatoes, raw kale salad, braised kale, and more all catered by Sage Vegan.

Sage Vegan In Echo Park catered the Best Thanksgiving Ever

In addition to amazing wines brought by my super-generous uncle, we also enjoyed raw cheesecake and ice cream from Kind Kreme, which has a location inside Sage Vegan in Echo Park.

It was wonderful to see my family, dip my feet into the Pacific Ocean and bask in the beautiful greenery of Los Angeles. Out here in the desert in Arizona, we miss green things this time of year! I am so proud of my brother for pushing for an all-vegan Thanksgiving, and am inspired to one day host a similar occasion for our family.

How was your Thanksgiving? Were folks open to your vegan/raw vegan lifestyle?

The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg Bake

by Femme Fraîche March 06, 2016

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
