    This is the way my aunt showed me years ago to make a simple, fresh tomato sauce. It can be used in many ways, of course most favour it over pasta. I didn't know her exact quantities but I found a very close version If you're new to blanching & de-seeding tomatoes, it's pretty easy and I've put the instructions at the bottom...there are also lots of tutorials online showing you how. I've never tried it, but apparently this freezees well.

    Recipe #456839

    This originates from Veg Times January 2000, but I found it veganized by They're intended to be served with your favourite tomato sauce over pasta.....I think they would really compliment many other dishes.

    Recipe #456798

    Easy to prepare tagine which benefits from slow cooking. Use whatever veg is in season, things like green beans, potatoes, carrots and other root veg work well. Originally found on, with a few minor tweaks. Serve over couscous or with some crusty bread, maybe both!

    Recipe #456765

    A non-dairy recipe from the International Veg. Union. I love grilled mushrooms, delicious over lightly toasted baguette slices.

    Recipe #456762

    Idea started from a recipe on the back of a package of pre-cut yam fries found in the produce section. That version used lime and cilantro, which I think would be a great combo, the difference would be that you'd wait to toss in the cilantro until the very end. Their cooking time was also way off, although with something like fries different ovens can make a big difference.

    Recipe #455415

    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

    This is a very healthy, live food recipe with nut protein, EFAs and veggies. Use as a sandwich spread or thin it out slightly to make it a dip. As a filling you can roll up in lettuce leaves or spread into celery sticks. The recipe originates from Alive Magazine. It made a huge amount so I cut the recipe in half. As this is "live" food it does not keep, you need to eat within 24 hours or it begins to ferment. Perfect time to pull out your seed sprouter and make your own lentil or other sprouts - or you can usually buy a variety of sprouts in your local produce store. A food processor is the best tool for this, in order to get a true pate consistency. I have made it in my blender, which worked but I had to add some water to help things along so it was more like a hummus consistency. I am also editing to include about a tsp of tamari/soy/braggs as an option. I found it needed it an extra boost of seasoning.

    Recipe #455016

    An easy weeknight soup my children and I enjoy. I'm sure any brand of veggie 'sausage' would work, though you might want to boost up seasonings if you use a plain variety. Great with some nice bread on the side. (The nutritional info will be off because it wasn't accepting the specific veggie sausage as an ingredient).

    Recipe #454864

    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

    Sometimes you just want a simple, good sandwich that doesn't involve faux deli slices. I keep a tin of chickpeas on hand for just such occassions, and never make it exactly the same way twice...but this is generally a combo of ingredients and flavours I enjoy. I also like to add in a bit of flax oil, just to get my omegas in. Served on some toasted bread, this is a quick and satisfying lunch.

    Recipe #453045

    A tasty and nutritious brothy soup, with a garlic boost perfect for under-the-weather days. We make a lot of lentil soup, this is a combination of some of our favourites. The list of ingredients may look a little long, but it comes together fairly quickly, chopping and cooking as you go and then leaving to simmer.

    Recipe #449810

    A famous vegetarian restaurant in Vancouver (the Naam) makes an amazing Dragon bowl stir fry with loads of tofu and veg and an amazing sauce. I think there are lots of versions of the dish out there, but one of the best I ever found was posted on, originally from 'Ripe From Around Here'. This is my adaptation, a few other favourite ingredients thrown in and lighter in oil. Serve over hot rice and steamed veg or some tofu. I like to stir fry veg and udon noodles in about half of the sauce, and then toss in the remaining sauce when done. Some recipes include less tamari and use miso. Lots of variations you could do, and lots of ways to use it.

    Recipe #449347

    Love tofu scramble, here's another version. Original idea to incorporate some Greek flavours came from My personal preference for any scramble is medium-firm tofu, water packed. Most recipes call for firm or extra firm, and that'll work, it's really whatever you like best. I know some people prefer silken for a really creamy texture. If you use firm or extra firm, you might need to add a little more liquid.

    Recipe #445932

    A quick version of vegan gravy using dried shiitake mushrooms, adapted from The shiitake flavour is strong in this, even if you choose to strain them out as I do. If you're starting with fresh mushrooms then the first two steps will be quite different and you could saute them with the garlic instead. Goes nicely with mashed potatoes and lentil loaf.

    Recipe #445127

    I started out intending to make a Cuban bean and pumpkin stew from one of Madhur Jaffrey's books. I didn't have enough of the ingredients on hand to get the full Cuban flair, so I merged the base of navy beans and pumpkin with another MJ recipe to make this simple yet hearty and satisfying soup. Note, this calls for dried beans, soaking overnight is preferable but you can use the quick method too.

    Recipe #442465

    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

    A delicious veg*n pate made in B.C. comes from Hornby Island Pate Co. This is my version, inspired by their Herb variety. It's super easy to make, very similar to this version from the book ExtraVeganZa: Recipe #287199. You more or less throw everything into the food processor, blend until smooth and then bake. Delicious in sandwiches or served with crackers. You can bake this in a loaf tin, or something slightly larger such as an 8x8 square which would make it easy to cut into squares and freeze.

    Recipe #441319

    This is based on a recipe found on carnalvegan's blog, with a few adjustments and addition of a flax egg. You could use another flour such as unbleached all-purpose, or a combo. Whole wheat makes it a little more dense, but I'm OK with that and there is enough liquid to handle spelt if you wanted to sub that. You can adjust the sesame flavour as you like, basically it's 1/3 a cup of oil, a mix of canola & sesame. I make it with just 1 tbsp of sesame oil but you could go as much as 2 (any more than that would be overkill). Or take away some more oil and sub applesauce for a lighter version. This calls for a flax egg, sub with your favourite egg replacer.

    Recipe #441318

    Adapted from the version on I found the dough was fantastically easy to prepare, rolled out really nicely (and I'm not the best at making my own pastry). Not everyone likes the flavour of chana/garbanzo bean flour, I think any sub there would work well. The original recipe calls for pine nuts, but since they are so expensive these days, I have used blanched almonds. It's obviously a bit of an undertaking when you're making all the sections from scratch, but well worth the effort. Serve warm or at room temperature, I successfully made this the night before and then let it come to room temperature for lunch the next day.

    Recipe #439121

    I think this has been through a few adaptations, I found it on, but the original came from famed Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. This version works out well, the cupcakes are a little muffin-like (dense), not quite the airy cake texture you might expect, but they're very very tasty. With a topping of some simple icing (I flavoured my icing with maple extract), they make a fantastic fall treat. A few other frosting suggestions include the one in Recipe #332197 or the penuche from Recipe #189828. Even my children, who normally run screaming from anything made of pumpkin, enjoyed these. BTW, you could add some pumpkin pie spice to this if you have some on hand (1/2 tsp).
