    This started off being an idea for a tofu shish kebab. Ended up more of a fusion ... a really tasty fusion! Sharp tang of lime with some sweet curry. Depending on your curry powder you may want to add extra heat with chili powder. You could also lace in some mushrooms, peppers and/or eggplant pretty nicely. Prep time does not include marinating time which should ideally be overnight or more.

    Recipe #418012

    I adapted this from a recipe on www.manjulaskitchen.com. I reduced the oil, and instead of peas, used leafy greens. You could change the greens as you wish. I'm trying to eat more leafy greens like swiss chard, hence the idea. I must admit though, as much as I want to, I really don't care for swiss chard on its own in this - it just plays too big a role. So I've only listed spinach, you can sub in as you choose (recommend up to 1 cup of the spinach could be subbed). The recipe was also altered by adding a few extra spices and some liquid to give it a little gravy. It makes enough for 2 as a side dish, or for 1 as a generous main. I served with roti and some tofu on the side, "Recipe #318406" today. Provided you have these spices on hand, it's a pretty quick recipe and open to subs.

    Recipe #418011

    There are a million versions of spicy peanut sauce - this is just another take on an old (?) favourite. It uses vinegar which I like because I don't always have citrus on hand. My 3 year old loves this (go figure), it's just the right amount of spice for him - so of course you might want to beef up the chili. I also went pretty light on the sesame oil to try and save some calories...all in all it's pretty tasty and super easy! In my photo I had stir-fried it with some buckwheat noodes, bok choi, broccoli and some other veg. Note that it only makes 1/2 a cup, about enough for 2.

    Recipe #413912

    "Veganized" (?) from the recipe on the package of oat bran. This also uses spelt flour instead of regular wheat, of course you could use regular flour instead. I was pleasantly surprised at how well these turned out - really light, maybe a little crumbly due to the spelt. In a nutshell, really good and all the benefits of the oat bran!

    Recipe #412852

    These aren't the gooey sickly sort of cinnamon rolls you get at the mall! They're not overly sweet, the sort of thing you would have with tea or coffee in the morning. I came across this "Swedish" version on the blog: http://dieflaschenpost.blogspot.com. I'm not an experienced cinnamon bun baker, this was actually my first attempt. I can see now why they're so popular, because they're quite fun & easy to make. These have a subtle cardamom flavour, which I suppose you could sub with another spice if you choose. The original version didn't include any whole wheat flour...you could adjust to all regular flour if you choose. I tried it with more whole wheat as well as with oil and the results weren't as good. They're very pretty out of the oven, it seems a shame to ice them! Although, took to a school event and did ice them with a simple frosting to please the masses. :) Prep time includes the approximate rising time.

    Recipe #412832

    From Veg Times, this recipe calls for Napa cabbage (aka Chinese cabbage). Nice change from lettuce, and for those who don't care for the usual coleslaw, this one has a distinct Asian flavour with the sesame oil, ginger and soy. Lots of room to add more veggies as you wish! UPDATE: I was able to make this in advance for a party by mixing up the dressing a few days in advance and storing in a tightly sealed jar in the fridge. The night before, I cut up all the veg, including the cilantro and put it all in a plastic bag. A few hours before we were due to eat, I tossed it all together. It worked out really nicely. I also used regular cabbage and it was still great. If you like dressing I suggest doubling that part, you can always keep extra for another meal if you don't use it all.

    Recipe #411003

    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

    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

    Came by this on veganyumyum.com - and it lives up to the website's name. This really is a quick one, not fancy by any means, but I think it's tastes pretty fantastic. Apart from a bit of fresh lemon juice and garlic, these items are pantry staples for most vegetarians or vegans. You want to be careful not to overcook the sauce. I found the flavours were better raw, much more mellow when I had cooked it with some leftover pasta. So I'd recommend really gently heating the sauce. If you're looking for a really traditional "cheesy" sort of flavour, keep in mind this won't be exactly it, but it is savory and cheese like....I guess as cheesy as you get vegan wise. Well, you know what I mean. Enjoy!

    Recipe #403282

    I was on the Dr Oz site looking for something completely different when I stumbled across this recipe. I know there are a zillion chili recipes...this one looked a little different with the touch of lime. I haven't tried this yet, plan to soon because I think it looks tasty. I'm guessing at the cooking time, it looks fairly quick though...30 minutes simmering time is included in my guess. Update...had a chance to make this and I really like the recipe - it's very quick to throw together. The only thing I wanted to come back and adjust is the amount of chili powder - suggest starting with a tsp and working your way up from there, because chili powders vary so much. I happened to use chipotle and an entire tbsp would have been too much.

    Recipe #402167

    Yet another one from Moosewood cooks at home. I guess I'm in the mood for stew! You can top this with grated cheddar if you like (or vegan cheese for that mater). Cilantro is optional, but I think it really makes it. I also like cornbread with this - very satisying.

    Recipe #402070

    Another gem from the Moosewood Cooks at Home book. You can add or sub any veggies you like to this (green beans work really well). It can turn into a bit of a fridge clearer at my house! And I sometimes add a bit of chunked tofu too. It's one of those recipes where you don't need to have everything prepped and ready to go, you can wash/peel/chop as you go down the list. Although you would think spanish paprika would be recommended for this, the book actually suggests sweet hungarian as the best choice.

    Recipe #402068

    An upside down pudding cake from "How it all Vegan"....my first ever pudding cake, and it was pretty fabulous. I'm somewhat in awe of how simple it was....as we were putting it together it looked a little strange having never made one before, but it worked!! This is one of those cakes (desserts) you more than likely always have the ingredients on hand for. My 5 year old actually put this together aside from the boiling water part - it worked out just fine, lumps and all! The original recipe called for 1/2 cup margarine...I subbed oil. My only wish would be that the pudding part was a little "creamier", but I'm not sure how to accomplish that. I served this to non vegans tonight and they all enjoyed it, no mention of it being vegan or otherwise. Served with vanilla ice "cream".

    Recipe #401907

    I made this a few weeks ago to go with a veggie loaf - and I could have eaten the entire batch myself....so good! Took it to a family dinner, where there was one gravy for the meat eaters, and this one for the non. My SIL referred to it as the "lumpy" one. Well, yes, it's a bit chunky with all the delicious mushrooms. It made enough to freeze a cup or so for future use. If you're preparing in advance it does get quite thick, so just thin out with some wine or more stock when the time comes to use it. This is from 'Vegan a Go Go'.

    Recipe #401835

    This version of moussaka is loaded with roasted eggplant and zucchini and has a lovely pine-nut tofu topping. It is out of Veganomicon (such a fabulous book). I wanted to try this from day one of owning the book and finally got round to it today. Like any moussaka I've ever made, it's fairly time consuming because you have to prepare 3 parts...but they're all fairly simple steps. The amount of dishes to do afterwards is probably the biggest issue! I made a nice big casserole which could have fed 6 easily with a salad, maybe even 8. I found that the amount of potatoes this calls for weren't enough for two layers of potato, just one. So I'm not sure if I was off in weight, or if I cut them too thick. But one layer of potato was just fine. You have some leeway to increase the eggplant & zucchini a bit as well, I used 2 medium eggplant and 2 medium zucchini which is well over 1 lb. Well - if you give it a go, I hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #401805

    This recipe is one of my first experiments making a vegan "cheese" style sauce. It is from "How it all Vegan", which is such a fabulous book. When I first made it, I misread and used sunflower seeds instead of sesame - and now I'm not sure which version I like better. If you're wondering, the consistency is similar to hummus, and if you've never made one of these so-called "cheeses" don't expect it to be like the dairy cheese you know, it's quite different. Great, different. Note that this makes quite a bit - the recipe says 1 cup, but I'd say it's close to 2. So if you're using this as a sandwich spread, that's quite a bit to go through unless you try freezing (I haven't tried that yet). According to the book it should last 7-10 days. Having said that, if you've got people over - put this out with some crackers and it won't last long!

    Recipe #400300

    I was looking for a fruit "something" that would be finger food friendly for a shower this weekend. Wanted something a little showy for the buffet table, and was surprised that I couldn't find anything on zaar involving fruit and a skewer. :) Shock horror! I ended up on www.justjennrecipies.com and found this idea. It's nothing you couldn't figure out on your own, pretty basic, but it gave me an idea to work with. You could serve with one of the many fruit dip recipes here on the zaar - or as is, which is what I'm planning to do. I'll post some pics once it's done! Update: I had to use a baby watermelon, still worked out fine. I did find the step of making small X marks to poke the skewers through was unnecessary - plus you need to get the right angle when you poke the skewer in (otherwise they might be flopping down too far from the weight of the fruit, so I wouldn't bother with that step next time.

    Recipe #397744

    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 - http://dalitoy.blogspot.com, 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.

    Recipe #397651

    I called this just right because it was just the right recipe for the amount of time I wanted to spend on cooking it, and it has just the right amount of ingredients, mainly pantry staples so I wasn't scrounging around for substitutes. I found this on www.manjulaskitchen.com ... she has some fabulous recipes, very easy to follow. I made her parathas as well, best ever for me. Hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #397640

    Another recipe courtesy of the great Madhur Jaffrey. I'm often looking for new eggplant dishes, and can't believe I haven't tried this particular recipe until today, it's really very easy. From what I've read, traditionally in this dish the eggplant would be fried - in this version it is broiled which obviously cuts down on the calories quite substantially. I also used light coconut milk. I only had one eggplant on hand today and it turned out great, a nice side-dish or main for 2. I can imagine that by using two regular eggplants you would be able to serve at least 3, if not 4, as a main. Next time you run across good looking eggplants in the store, pick a few out and give this a try! (One last note, apparently the original version of this normally calls for 2 tsp of cayenne...wow, that would be hot. 1/2 tsp, as called for here, was just about right for us, but of course, season away as you like!).
