It may seem like an unusual combination, but once you’ve tried this sweet, nutty sandwich, you’ll be hooked. If you don’t have a panini maker, cook the sandwiches in a skillet and weigh them down with another pan. Or you can wrap them in foil and cook on the grill with a weight on top.

This Stewed Green Bean recipe is a great flavorful way to use green beans! The recipe makes enough for two hungry people, so if you have more people at home double the recipe. The recipe uses three tablespoons of olive oil so if you want to make this lower fat feel free to reduce some of the oil. You can replace the seitan with storebought "beef" or "chicken" chunks, or even veggie crumbles. Taken directly from the Vegan Foodie.

This is basically aigo bouido(which translates into garlic bouillon), kicked up a bit with a little tomato to make a hearty stock. This is a very old preparation once made by most housewifes in Provence. It's immensely fortifying, good for colds and hangovers, as well as a great foundation for potato dishes and winter stews. Economical and delicious! From Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison.
