It is getting cold outside.  Autumn in Canada is my fave season.  It brings about thoughts of harvest, cozy socks, tea and chilling with a blanket.  It is when I get most of my crafting done and recipe development.  Vegan Mofo has begun and I am too exhausted to come up with a clever theme.  So I thought..."this is the season of comfort so why not blog about comfort food!"

I plan to post all the deliciousness prepared over the next month.  There is no set schedule but if I'm feeling like a little home cooking is necessary and it is infused with nostalgia and taste, I'll be sure to bring it!!!

Tonight I was craving sliders.  I've actually never had one but for some reason the end of summer weather is making me yearn for a good tasting burger, fresh and sweet.  So I came up with Asian sliders with homemade guac and grilled pineapple.  

Asian Tofu Sliders

1 block of tofu (if you like a more raw tasting burger... If you like a mild more solid burger go for two blocks)
1/4 cup parsley
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 a bunch of green onion finely chopped
2 tbsp of soya sauce
1 tsp of ginger and curry spice each
2 tbsp of maple syrup
1 tsp of lemon

1.  Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until desired consistency.  I prefer very smooth.
2.  Preheat the oven to 375•
3. Heat a skillet with a generous amount of oil on medium-high heat.  Place a heaping tablespoon of the "batter" in the hot pan and press down. Cook until brown on both sides and place on an non-greased cookie sheet. 
4.  Once all patties are on the sheet place into the oven and cook for approx. 15 minutes.


Grilled pineapple
Sliced shallots
Sweet relish
Dijon mustard

I found that all of these components out together make the best tasting slider.  Enjoy!!! And happy vegan mofo!!!



  1. These sound amazing. I am adding them into our dinner rotation next week.

  2. What a great twist on an American dish...at least I think it's American (?). The addition of the pineapple is killer! Yum!

  3. Looks like slider perfection and sounds amazing! I love all of the colours. Might have to make these for supper one night next week.
