This versatile rice can take the place of mashed potatoes and gravy, or bread stuffing and can even be served as a hot cereal with nut milk, I preferred a cashew yogurt beverage over mine.
The rice and accompanying gravy are sweet, but not too sweet. Just right. Upon first tasting right from the stove I thought wow this is like caramel-flavored raisin pecan rice. You might have thought it was dripping with butter.
The SMOKY FRUIT SAUCE can also be used over cake or dairy-free ice-cream!
The JUMBO SUN-MAID RAISINS are multi-colored and more sophisticated in flavor and texture than regular raisins – an added treat for a holiday dish!
Serve plain with the sauce, or top your favorite pan-fried plant sausage – patties or links!

What the world calls Shepherd’s Pie my mother called Chinese Pie. It wasn’t till I left home that I discovered what I thought was Chinese all this time was something else. Named after Shepherd’s herding their animals to slaughter. The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want…something about not fearing the price on your head!
Well, this is my version, not unlike Mom’s, just a few differences. She always used fresh potatoes and ground beef and onions topped with creamed corn, then the potato. It was always good – leftovers too!
I’m trying crispy onion for the first time ever as a topper.
One chore I dreaded as a kid was peeling potatoes. I used a paring knife instead of a peeler to make it quicker. My father would yell at me for cutting away half the potato with the peel. Oh well, then along came instant!! My kind of invention. Of course I still do prefer fresh mashed, but over the years improvements were made in the instant category. Yea!
Shepherds led the animals to slaughter. This animal-free Shepherds Pie herds humans away from the animal and into a new world of animal-free cuisine! Yes, this pie fits the cuisine status! Easy to make lets you enjoy exquisite more often! Elegance from a can and a box – can you imagine that! Good!

Serve with a beet and berry sauce and dry red wine to complete the animal-free experience!
Individual servings of creamy Stuffin’ Muffins. Dry rye bread, cabbage saute, savory cider broth processed with instant mashed potatoes into a batter. Baked with brown sugar and margarine bottom glaze and topped with smoky Candied Walnuts. Exquisite!
Cider gravy – who would think? Soy sauce with vegan cream cheese? You betcha. How could such unlikely ingredients show up in the same dish to make such a grand entrance while looking and tasting so good doing it? Because ‘you know who’ dared to try something new! Your ‘buds will not be disappointed!
Perfect fried rice – àla Sharon! Most cooks put chopped up animals into their fried rice. The red rice is the plant meat here. Works wonders! The cauliflower is the shrimp and lobster combined. So you get the Imperial version! Nothing but the best for all my food-loving people!

This is my celebratory Pasta Masterpiece gift to the world. Masterpiece need not be difficult. I made it easy – just for you, because you like easy. Merry Christmas and happy day to the world ~ from Sharon Lee Davies-Tight, The Animal-Free Chef
Made with veggie pepperoni, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. Powerful flavors that pack a powerful pasta punch. Serve with red wine, beer or lemonade! This is my Vincent van Gogh of pesto pasta dishes. Rich, filling, satisfies on all levels.
We use the other white plant meat for this fine American-Italian casserole. Veg veal! I think I’ve had veal once or twice aside from a luncheon sandwich meat called veal loaf back in the long ago days. I recall it not having much flavor – not the loaf that tasted more like bologna, but the fresh pounded cutlets.
Mild in flavor, soft when ground, which is what we did here. We, meaning me. I figured I must have had some divine or other intervention help on this one, since I nailed it first time. On my birthday too! Had no idea I’d be cooking today. Must be that Alpha Lipoid Acid I’m taking that fixes fatigue. It works.
What a treat. OMGod does this have meat in it? And the sauce!! All so rich, all so wonderful!
White and wild rices, cashews and raisins seasoned with garlic, saffron and mint. Served with orange zest, and a maple syrup and extra virgin olive oil drizzle! Takes me someplace I haven’t been before and I like it. Steve loves it. Elegant, he remarked. And delicious! Mostly fat-free!
