    They're so good for you! These little beans are such a great source of iron, protein and fibre I have been trying to find ways to incorporate them more into recipes. Not to mention how inexpensive they are (dried whole). I couldn't find a specific adzuki soup recipe that looked like it had much flavour so after reading many and adapting, I have come up with this. It's very hearty, has the consistency of a thick lentil soup and makes a nice dinner for 4 or 5 with bread. You could sub most veggies that you have on hand, although I think the carrot and celery are a must. Much to my surprise, my kids lapped this up! And to please meat-eating diners at our table, I added chorizo to a portion of the pot (see last point). The flavours in this are basically asian, but believe it or not the chorizo fusion worked and got rave reviews. Prep time does not include overnight soaking of the beans. Much of the prep time is for simmering.

    Recipe #360328

    I ran across the idea for a rice salad using adzuki beans online somewhere, which had similar based ingredients but a different dressing. I've paired the nutritious ingredients of brown rice, adzuki beans and barley here with an Asian flavoured dressing. Not difficult to prepare, but it does involve some boiling and overnight soaking of the beans. In my case I make it with leftover brown rice so there is one less step. This could be spiced up with some cayenne or chili paste as you please, and of course the addition of flax oil is completely optional. I think this would be good for 4 sides, or 2 mains. I haven't included the overnight soaking in the prep time.

    Recipe #453157

    A simple recipe for beans, you must plan ahead for presoaking the dried beans. You could probably used tinned but it wouldn't be the same. This recipe was found on, submitted by the International African Vegetarian Network and Friends.

    Recipe #456933

    Found in a recipe book from the Algarve region of Portugal.

    Recipe #370746

    My old roomie Rukshana sent this to me when she returned home to India, many moons ago. It's hard to say how many it serves, I've only ever made as a side dish. If you're new to dried mango powder, most asian food stores carry it, although I don't think it would be the end of the world if you left it out. I'm sure there are numerous variations to this dish, as is the case with most Indian recipes - this is very simple yet tasty. You might want to adjust the chilies, this is fairly hot. Enjoy!

    Recipe #366604

    I originally got this online somewhere, sorry don't remember where, and I haven't tried it yet. I imagine the best bread to use in this case would be plain white, since it ends up being ground into a paste later on. Might be a good way to use up a few bread ends or rolls in your freezer!

    Recipe #370960

    I adore angel hair pasta, and such a fine pasta doesn't always need a big sauce. Serve with some kind of cheese or "cheez" if you wish, sprinkled on top. My children like it with sliced olives. There are many versions of this simple recipe, this one I adapted from This would probably be good for 4 as a side dish or 4 for lunch with a salad.

    Recipe #456846

    Salted cod is widely used in Portuguese cuisine, also known as dry, salt-cured cod or saltfish in other parts of the world. It can be found in most european markets. It requires desalting, a step that must be done a day in advance as it takes 24 hours, (that time not included in the prep time).

    Recipe #370847

    Thanks to Moosewood for their version of jerk tofu, which is what this is based on. It calls for baking the tofu - I prefer to grill it on the BBQ. Grilled tofu is so delicious!! You do need to press the tofu beforehand....that 30 minutes is reflected in the prep time, you may also wish to do that well in advance and just leave it sitting in the fridge. I prefer to make this up well in advance and let the pressed tofu sit in marinade as long as possible before cooking. This can be eaten along with a variety of side dishes or salads, with a little fruit salsa or dip. Or just eat it cold the next day, it's great for the vegetarian lunch box.

    Recipe #373451

    Adapted from How it all Vegan. This is really easy to throw together, provided you have the beans ready to go (or use canned). Even if you have to boil some up, dry navy beans and soy beans are pretty quick if you've soaked them for 6 hours or so. This is a less sweet version of baked beans with only a little molasses, more tomato-ey. It's satisfying and simple. If accompanied by a salad and some hearty bread it would probably be enough for 4 people. For larger portions though, I'd say more like 2 or 3, with some leftovers. The original recipe only called for 1 1/2 cups broth, I adjusted to 2 1/2, found it was too dry otherwise, but then I really like sauce so you may choose to cut that back down. I also added 1 tbsp of brown sugar, found it was just lacking a little something without it. The last adjustment was to the cooking time - originally calling for 40 mins at 350, that wasn't near enough time to even cook the onions, so I upped to 375 for an hour. (Note, prep/Cook time does not include soaking or boiling of the beans).

    Recipe #407334

    I believe the word Balti actually means "bucket"....this famous style of curry is cooked in a balti pan, much like a wok. I think the reference to bucket means more that you can throw anything in! I fell in love with balti curries years ago living in Birmingham UK - a few blocks from balti central. What sushi bars are to Vancouver, balti houses are to Birmingham. I know this is a very anglo version of balti sauce, a very mild one at that, but it is quite healthy and light....and not lacking any flavour. It's also fairly quick to prepare compared to some recipes I've tried. You can boost up the heat factor as you wish. I included mainly ready ground spices, but of course you could use whole. If you use whole cardamom seeds or whole coriander I would suggest grinding the spices up after you roast them (otherwise you have a lot of woody bits to deal with). Use the sauce to make any kind of veggie curry and serve with naan or roti on the side. This makes 3 cups of sauce - enough for 4 servings. I like to save half the sauce for a different curry later on. (good for a fridge cleaner curry! :) It also improves overnight, as many sauces do. Hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #409418

    Another adaptation from Vegan a Go Go. I changed this to spelt flour, just personal preference and a little more protein. I also halved the amount of oil and used some applesauce to save on some calories.

    Recipe #422466

    From Vegan-a-Go-Go. They didn't give specifics for the type of flour or the type of milk, I chose whole wheat flour & almond milk this time, in order to get the right nutritional sounds like nearly any flour or milk would work. Haven't tried yet....but plan to!

    Recipe #441320

    I wanted to make some basic chocolate chip cookies for my kids (vegan & spelt) and found this recipe on It goes together really quickly and easily and only has 8 ingredients. I used a light spelt flour, which I think is most suitable for this recipe. They're a little cake-like, as with most vegan cookies...I prefer them this way. Note that the recipe only makes 12 cookies - you could make 24 small ones, but I like the larger size. Use carob or vegan chocolate chips, and I'm sure you could add some nuts and seeds if you choose. Hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #395344

    Marmitako is a traditional Basque dish, which I have yet to make myself. I'm told it's delicious and seems very easy to make. I like the one pot idea! I'm unsure of the serving size, it seems like a lot to me for 4 people!

    Recipe #371045

    I love grain salads and find those made with barley tend to keep very well. If you make this ahead, you'll just need to store the beets separately. I think this makes enough for about 8 as a side. This came from Alive Magazine. I like to add some fresh herbs into the dressing, whatever I have on hand. Other types of vinegar would work well here.

    Recipe #455019

    I like having a baked brie at parties, always nice to find a new way to do it. This came via a demo table at my local grocery store a few years back. Dried blueberries can be quite expensive, I wonder if you could just dry your own in the oven. They should be easy enough to find in the bulk section and they do 'make' the dish so you can't leave them out. Nice for a special occassion (when calories don't count!). Serve with a selection of crackers or sliced baguette.

    Recipe #366565

    Bouillabaisse is a fish stew, originating from the south of France (Marseilles). I believe the story of the dish is much like that of Ciopinno. Years ago I worked at a restaurant in Zurich, called Bouillabaisse...which they were famous for. This brings back some memories, although I couldn't tell you if this recipe is truly authentic or not. I do know that traditionally the broth is served with toasted bread topped with rouille inside the bowl, and the fish and seafood are on the side. This recipe calls for topping the stew with the rouille and serving bread on the side. I think any combination of all three items would be delicious! Note that the combination of the fish and seafood doesn't really matter, basically 3 lbs of whatever your favourites are.

    Recipe #373519

    I like to make vegetarian sushi rolls at home and have worked on perfecting a brown rice version. I came across a recipe online that added quinoa to the mix and I love it! Adds that extra bit of protein to make this a well rounded light meal, snack or appy. I've changed that original recipe a bit and have streamlined the cooking process (less dishes the better!). My kids like to help roll these up. I've included cucumber, carrot and avacado as filling...of course you can fill with whatever you fancy. This makes enough to fill 4 nori sheets, which you can cut into 6 or 8 pieces each. Enjoy!

    Recipe #366569

    I am a complete novice when it comes to making Dosa. I searched around Zaar for a recipe that didn't use white rice or par-boiled rice. I ended up finding a version here -, which gave me an idea for the ingredients, but not much in the way of instruction. So I searched around some more and found some more straigh-forward instructions. I have yet to try this, but I like the sounds of it and plan to try it soon. Note there is soaking and fermenting time to consider, so you'll have to plan in advance. Dosas new to you too? It's basically a crepe made from rice and split/hulled black lentils (aka white lentils...I take it these lentils have black skins and are white inside). Dosas can be stuffed with vegetables or served with sauces/sambar for a light meal or snack. I believe these would be gluten-free, but I'm no expert so please look it up if that's important to you. I'm hoping to pair these with a variety of vegan fillings for an easy, portable, lunch. As for quantity, I believe this will make a dozen, possibly more.
