    This recipe was adapted from ExtraVeganZa, which is a book I am thoroughly loving! For starters I halved the recipe - so you could easily double up again to get about enough for 6-7. There are a few things I did not halve including the curry powder and lime juice, just something to be aware of if you do double it, use those seasonings to taste. If you're using a hotter curry powder like Madras, you may want to add less. I added spinach and used regular onions, the original recipe called for green onions. This made 4 moderate servings, just right if you're serving with rice and/or roti. This didn't take long to make, and tasted even better the next day.

    Recipe #422465

    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

    Came across this recipe in July's Alive magazine, who needs bottled dressing when you can put this together in a matter of a few minutes. This pairs nicely with quinoa salad or any crisp green salad.

    Recipe #431876

    Growing up we used to have a salad like this all the time, and it was about the only way I would eat spinach. Still love this combination. I think this particular recipe originated from the side of a bag of mushrooms. I have tweaked it over the years because I don't like to cook the spinach, I prefer to just toss the hot hot dressing over the spinach, which just wilts it enough without cooking it. I'm always throwing bread loaf ends into the freezer, this is a good recipe to use some of them in. Toss the final salad with cheese if you like. Beware, your house will smell like vinegar!!

    Recipe #366602

    Homemade tartar sauce is quick and easy. I prefer to mix mine up so it's smooth, as opposed to the chunky sort you buy - but your choice of course. I made this one day to go with #216544 and it makes more than enough for 8 people (and we like sauce!).

    Recipe #368916

    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 very simple side salad which would go nicely alongside a curry and rice. There isn't much to this, the beauty is in its simplicity. According to the Int'l Vegetarian Union, this is a Swahili recipe, common in Kenya & Tanzania. (www.ivu.org)

    Recipe #456927

    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

    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

    Adapted from a recipe found at http://www.grouprecipes.com/103768/vegan-swedish-meatballs.html. That one uses a whole 2 cups worth of soy creamer...granted, that would make it deliciously creamy, I tried to lighten that up a bit (you could adjust the broth-creamer ratio as you wish). I also changed the meatballs up by using TVP instead of a packaged sausage product which we just can't find where I live.

    Recipe #426798

    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 data.....it sounds like nearly any flour or milk would work. Haven't tried yet....but plan to!

    Recipe #441320

    Recipe from a cookbook from the Algarve region of Portugal. Simple simple!

    Recipe #370963

    There is a lot of information out there about Chia seeds (Salvia) and what a nutritional powerhouse they are. I'm trying to find new ways to incorporate them into my diet, aside from sprinkling them on breakfast cereal. Recently my health food store handed out a few recipes including chia seeds, which is where this one stems from. I'm no expert but I do know they are high in omega-3, fibre, calcium and protein. I know of vegans using chia seeds soaked in water in place of eggs (or in place of "flax" eggs). I'm planning to post a recipe for chia egg replacer shortly. This page has lots of great information about these seeds - http://www.living-foods.com/articles/chia.html. I halved the original recipe, since these seeds are expensive I didn't want to risk it. If you don't happen to have coconut oil (aka coconut butter), I think it would be fine to leave it out because there is enough oil in the tahini and almond butter to hold things together. These make a fantastic snack.

    Recipe #422262

    This recipe came together from a few different recipes, and from having tried a number of varieties over the years. I generally use dry chickpeas that have been soaked and cooked - of course you could use tinned, which I think gives you about 1 1/2 cups when drained - so if you're using canned just adjust the water accordingly to get the consistency you want. For the garlic, if you don't have any roasted heads ready to go, you could also saute garlic to mellow it out (rather than use raw). I like to throw a few heads of garlic into the oven whenever it's in use for something else - saves using all that energy for just garlic when you need some. (Note...prep time doesn't include cooking the chickpeas or roasting the garlic..).

    Recipe #420705

    Courtesy of the original Moosewood Cookbook. Love that you can make it ahead and just pull it out of the fridge at serving time. I'm serving this at a birthday party buffet to make sure there is something substantial for vegetarians/vegans in the group. The book recommends stuffing this salad into pita bread to make it a meal, which I've never tried but sounds great. Prep time includes the minimum 2 hours for marinading. Serves 6 as the main attraction, but more if it's a side dish. Enjoy!

    Recipe #350632

    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

    This is just a little recipe off the side of a box of silken tofu (Mori-Nu). I didn't care for the entire recipe, which involved broiling the tofu...far too much effort to put the oven on when you're planning to stir fry. What I did like about the recipe was the sauce - quick and simple for those days when you don't have time to mess around with too many ingredients, but still don't want to open up a packaged sauce. You can thicken up the sauce if you choose, or add some heat if that's what you're going for. As this has honey I can't say it's vegan, however I think you could sub agave or some other sweetener quite nicely (brown rice syrup??). Let me know if you try that. The original recipe said it was enough for 4, but if I was making it for 4 adults I would probably double it which is why I said it serves 3. Enjoy!

    Recipe #396036

    I have been reading about the medicinal qualities of sage, specifically for sore throats that are plaguing my family right now. I came across this recipe on ehow.com, as well as a few other sites with virtually the same ingredients and method. I really enjoyed the flavour of this tea, it didn't feel like taking your medicine at all. I saved the leftovers and enjoyed it as cold iced tea today. Not sure it has the same medicinal benefits cold, but it sure tasted great. You can also use this warm as a gargle. As with all herbal remedies, you need to do your own homework. I know that you should avoid sage if you are pregnant or nursing, (since sage is used to help dry up milk production after weaning babies). Hopefully you've got some fresh sage and mint growing so that you can try this without having to spend a lot at the grocery store.

    Recipe #431722

    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 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.
