Great for pitch-ins!

Recipe #202755

This is a quick, 5 ingredient recipe. It comes from Light and Tasty. You should definitely be using the Italian-style diced tomatoes that come already seasoned with herbs for flavor. If you use plain diced tomatoes, just add some herbs to your liking when putting this recipe together.

Recipe #152412

My favorite recipe category: few ingredients, outstanding results! Delightful, healthful, quick and easy to prepare. I strongly recommend that you use only kalamata olives in this recipe. Otherwise I used 9 ounces bagged spinach, 6 ounces pasta myself, but published the recipe as written. From a cookbook called "The Best in the World" by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. This particular recipe came from Au Bar (renamed Je Me Souviens) in Palm Beach, Florida.

Recipe #224693

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.

Recipe #157385

The idea of combining curry with sweet potatoes, red peppers and pineapple intrigues me. Saving this to try soon.

Recipe #135914

As the weather turns chilly, my tastes immediately turn to comforting stews and thick soups. Though I am not a vegetarian, I enjoy having meatless meals a couple of times a week. Saw this one on cooking Light and wanted to post it for future reference. For those on the WW Core program, the stew is Core plus points for the feta garnish.

Recipe #142323

For some reason, the smell of fresh basil reminds me of springtime. This simple recipes uses the herb to its full advantage. You can add other vegetables to your liking or even add tofu as I sometimes do. For WW Core folks, it's Core plus points for the cheese. If you want all core, try making a very stiff yogurt cheese instead.

Recipe #187753

Inspired by the flavors of North Africa, this vegetarian stew replaces the tagine with the crock pot. The combination of saffron, ginger and cinnamon give of a wonderful aroma and flavor. It would tempting to substitute canned chickpeas here but you will get a different result. In this dish the chickpeas while tender have greater firmness than the canned type. Time saving tip: Prepare the ingredients the night before, placing the cubed squash, carrots, onions, tomato paste, garlic and ginger in one sealable bag or covered container, the lentils and dried spices in another. In the morning add the contents of both bags/containers, the soaked chickpeas and broth to your crock pot, turn it on and go.

"Many chili recipes contain brown or white sugar. In this recipe, more nutritious barley malt adds a smoky, beerlike sweetness that contrasts deliciously with the spices and green chiles." - Recipe from "Delicious Living" magazine, February 2004.

From the Ellsworth Cooking School in Ellsworth, Maine.

Recipe #91509

A quick and easy Vegetarian dish. Many times when I make this, I use a jar of spaghetti sauce rather than making my own sauce--makes it quicker and easier. You can also change the veggies you add to the sauce.

Recipe #131985

Serve with a crusty loaf of French bread...mmm. This recipe comes from the Moosewood Restaurant.

Recipe #135346

Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. It's from a special edition of Saveur, The Best of Tex-Mex Cooking. They recommend you use 2 cups dried navy beans soaked overnight, but I've altered the recipe and cooking time for canned. I also halved the amount of oil. When I tried this it made a rather soupy stew; if you prefer your stews drier, I suggest cutting back on the broth, and add more if it gets too dry.
