A wonderful and healthful combination of beans, rice and vegetables. It's also very pretty, vegetarian, Caribbean and low-fat. It has a meaty texture and MILD curry flavor. My boyfriend, who is not fond of curry dishes, loved this. If you don't want any peppers left over, you could just add a whole red or orange pepper for color. Flageolet beans are a bit on the expensive side, so buy cannellini if you'd like to save money. Adding tofu, a meat substitute or cooked meat would make this a more substantial one-dish meal.
I know the title seems somewhat bizarre, but the slight "hint" of semi-sweet chocolate gives this vegetarian chili a real depth of flavor. It reminds me somewhat of a sweet, yet spicy mole sauce. This recipe was adapted from one I found in the "Moosewood Restaurant Celebrates" cookbook.
A phenomenal amount of flavor and healthy to boot! Ease up on (or omit entirely) the jalapeno and cayenne if you're a lightweight like me. In fact, I just use one 4-oz can of mild diced green chilies instead.
A recipe from my college days, adapted from a friend. It's very quick and made with inexpensive ingredients that most people will have on hand. This will make a filling, nutritious, low-fat dinner for 2 people if served with a green salad. If you have leftovers, an easy way to save them is to mix the beans and rice together before refrigerating. This mixture is awesome spread and
This is a recipe that I got from a vegetarian cookbook and made a few modifications to. We have fallen for this dish and now make it a few times a month. My two year old also loves it. We tried it out on some non-vegetarians and they all loved it.
This is a quick and simple vegetarian curry with lots of flavor, tons of protein, and not alot of fat. I recommend using a real flavorful, mild curry powder, or one that you've mixed yourself. My "Simple, Sweet and Mild Curry Blend" works well with this dish. However,if you do like heat, feel free to add some cayenne or crushed red pepper to suit your taste.
This soup is a favorite pantry meal for my family. Easy, easy, easy to make and nutritious. I got the recipe from the back of a soup can but have improvised this soup many times. Feel free to adjust seasonings as you like.
