"A tasty vegetarian burger. Fairly mild -- increase spices to your taste. Adapted from 'The Vegetarian Gourmet's Easy Low-Fat Favorites.'"
This "meatless" loaf is packed full of protein. And, as an added bonus, it has potato and veggies baked right in. This goes nicely with a fresh green salad and some basmati rice. This is yet another recipe from my favorite cookbook, "The Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook"
Another lentil favorite in our home, even with the kiddos! Originally from the "Lean, Luscious, and Meatless" cookbook. I use less onion and usually add in a bit of cumin and ground flax, and typically shred the carrots as they cook down more and 'disguise' a little better for the kids. Great winter night stew!
This was adapted from a recipe on vegweb (http://vegweb.com/recipes/beans/3088.shtml), to incorporate more Ethiopian spices and use up a sweet potato I had on hand. It doesn't quite achieve the heights of my favorite Ethiopian restaurant, but it's quick, hearty and pretty tasty. Braver souls can substitute cayenne for some of the paprika
This is a wonderful breakfast or brunch when you wake up ravenous and really need a protein hit. A Saudi friend taught me how to make this. P.S. If you live in the Seattle area, a little store in the Pike Place Market called The Souk sells fava beans in cans; The store has a lot of great food items.
We make this every summer with vegetables from our garden. Our children love to help make this soup and eat it too. I like to double this recipe and freeze the leftovers. You can use any 5 cups of veggies that you like, we just happen to like the carrot/zucchini/cabbage combo.
This is one of my favorite Moosewood recipes, and it is so easy! My toddler even loves this recipe. This cold salad is perfect during the hot summer months, and goes great with meals that are cooked on the grill. I find that adding 1 T red wine vinegar makes it absolutely perfect. Moosewood categorizes this recipe as a "Main dish salad" but I prefer it as a side dish. I always omit the celery because it is the one vegetable that I do not like.
These are my favorite! Anytime I want fries I make these. I sometimes eat them with a fat free turkey hot dog and it takes me back to my childhood. I think these are better then the ones you make with regular baking potatoes. Try them and tell me what you think :)
