A nice rice salad with vegetables, doesn't get any better. All the flavors of the vegetables will shine.
Feel free to add or decrease salt and pepper to your liking.

I got this recipe from and friend and it is my favorite salad. I like to use a lot more sugar than the recipe calls for - About 2-3 tablespoons, but I'll leave the recipe as written and you can sweeten to taste. I also like to use pecans in place of the walnuts.
Insalata dii rinforzo is a Neopolitan Christmas Salad that is served at the holiday celebration and in the days that follow when it is "reinforced" by the addition of more of the same ingredients or in some cases by the addition of leftover cooked vegetables. It tastes best if allowed to marinate for three days but it will lose some of its vibrant colour from the acid in the vinegar. This recipe is from the December 1993 issue of Gourmet Magazine.
This is a wonderful vegetarian dish! If desired, regular mushrooms may be substituted for the portabellos, but the regular mushrooms should be sautéed first to release any moisture, To make things easier, you may Classico pasta sauce for this recipe or just use your own favorite sauce --- prep time includes boiling the pasta.
This is a traditional ritualistic cake that we serve after Christmas dinner. We sing the "we want some figgy pudding" song and when it comes to the table we heat a metal ladle full of brandy and light it up then pour the bluish flames over the top! We serve it with Recipe #124985.
Adapted from Tom Reilly, a staff baker in Esalen Institute’s famous kitchen while he was a Work Scholar and student there for a year and a half. When he introduced this sweet bread recipe from "The Bread Bible" he was besieged with requests to make it often – 30 loaves at a time! I lived off and on at Esalen Institute for several years during the early 70's. oh, the stories I could tell!
A little history:
Founded in 1962 as an alternative educational center devoted to the exploration of what "Brave New World" author Aldous Huxley called the "human potential," Esalen has attracted free-thinking philosophers, creative artists, top-notch body workers and nervous wrecks in need of Gestalt therapy for the past 40 years.
This recipe came from food52.com, from member "deensiebat." This was my first time using lacinato kale, which I find I like better than standard kale (although the standard kale or chard can also be used). I was thrilled to find such a delicious dish made of complete-protein quinoa and antioxidant-rich kale. AND it's easy to make all in just one pot!
This is one of those recipes that is usually better the next day after the flavors all meld together. Very quick and easy to make your own by adding or subtracting ingredients. My husband doesn't like really hot food so i use original RoTel tomatoes when he's eating this - if it's just me I go with the hot or extra hot. Great with hot rolls and a vegetable.
This is a recipe I got from my daughters mother-in-law, and of course she is one of those wonderful cooks who never has to measure:) So, I've tried as best as possible to give my approx measurements, although you can't really mess this up! I happen to LOVE cilantro and sometimes get carried away, so just remember that any of these ingredients can be adjusted to your own taste. As with most soups, this is better the next day, and also freezes well.
Rich, tasty, wonderful for Thanksgiving. Do NOT use dried rosemary! Be sure to use onions of similar size, and carefully cut in equal halves; if the pieces are unevenly sized, they will cook and brown unevenly.
This is so delicious and so simple. It's a little exotic, very flavorful, and will make your kitchen smell wonderful as it cooks - and my preference is to add extra cumin! I've never made it without first soaking the rice and lentils, but the dish could surely be adapted to no-soaking if you're looking to cut some of the prep time.
An outstanding cornbread recipe from the cookbook, "Passionate Vegetarian", by Crescent Dragonwagon. She and her husband served this at their award-winning inn, The Dairy Hollow House, and it was their most requested recipe. Make sure your oven is accurate. It really needs to be up to temperature for perfect results.
