Rosemary White Bean Soup (Vegan)

“I came across a photo in magazine of a beautiful white bean soup.  My husband actually brought me the article and asked me to make the soup in the picture for him.  It used a unfamiliar bean that you could slow cook without having to soak first.  However, not having that bean on hand yet having plenty […]

A Simple Bowl of Soup – Arabic Lentil Soup (Vegan)

“Even though we are almost into December, it still seems like summer was yesterday.  My mindset is still on simple, easy, minimalist dishes that only take but a few minutes to prepare; a bowl of fruit, fresh greens with crisp veggies just picked from the garden, or a quick pasta with cherry tomatoes, zucchini and […]

Smoky Red Lentil Mexican Soup (Vegan)

“Oh, how I miss soup!  With our Seattle weather topping out in the mid 90’s recently, soup has not been on the menu.  But this week the temps have dipped back to a welcoming mid 70’s and I just couldn’t help but get my stockpot out again and simmer up a good pot of soup. […]

Roasted Veggie Tacos with Avocado Cream

“Okay, okay.  I know I just posted a very similar recipe to this one.  But I seriously could not help myself this time.  And besides, this one IS different.  The Grilled Veggie Soft Taco recipe I posted takes more time since you have to stand above a grill and cook the veggies.  This one takes […]

Rosemary-Garlic-Dijon Red Potatoes (Vegan)

I have to tell you, I’m not really a potato salad kind of girl.  That doesn’t stop me from piling a big helping on my plate at every picnic and barbecue though.  The thing is, I love potatoes and I really want to love potato salad.  But it always seems bland and boring to me. I usually […]

Chickpea, Garlic and Braised Kale Spaghetti (Vegan, Gluten Free)

“I just bought a new cookbook at Costco and spent the good part of my recent beach vacation reading and marking up the recipes I wanted to try.  It’s not a vegetarian cookbook but it has an abundant amount of meatless recipes in it and the ones that contain meat are easy enough to alter. […]

Greek Farro Salad (Vegan)

“Farro is an ancient grain making a huge comeback. It looks and tastes like wheat berries and has a nutty flavor.  You’ll also find plenty of nutrients such as B vitamins and protein (4 grams in 1/2 cup, cooked) as well as fiber.  You’ll also find it loaded with antioxidants, phytonutrients, lignans and betaine.   I love to use […]

Vegan Mexican Pasta Bake (Gluten Free)

“I love taking an hour or two to lovingly prepare, cook and savor a good meal.  But sometimes we just need a good go-to meal that comes together quickly and saves for great leftovers.  I find that this dish tends to be one of those meals for me.  I only need a few fresh ingredients […]

Vegetarian Chili for Omnivores (Vegan)

“Chili is an all around easy dish to make and usually will satisfy people of all tastes. Our family usually eats chili as a soup but don’t forget how versatile this dish can be. Use it as a topper for a baked potato, toast a half a hamburger bun, top with a veggie burger then top with […]
