Even my hubby loves this recipe. I try to keep it on hand for quick lunches and easy dinners. It's great on toasted bread with soy cheese and a big tomato slice.

I've got a lot of cajun in me, and there are some recipes I can't live without! This is classic red beans and rice like my mama makes, only without any animal.

Tomatoes form the base, 4 beans and lentils make this hearty. Meat and dairy products can be added, but are not necessary. Makes 16 hearty servings that each have 50% of your daily fiber intake.

Broccoli is my favorite vegetable, but not everyone agrees with me. To convert people, I like to serve this simple recipe. Garlic sauteed in olive oil offers a sweet richness, and the lemon juice offers a nice tang.
If you are using fresh broccoli, peel the stalks and dice them before adding to the cooking water.

Vegan Rice bowl

A nice way to use leftover rice. Makes one serving. This is yummy and very filling and can be eaten for any meal of the day. Also, use leftover veggies or nuts/beans to make this your own creation!

This recipe originally came from a vegetarian cookbook, but I've changed the herbs and played with the ingredients a bit.

TIPS:
Instead of zucchini, you can use yellow squash. You can also add a shredded carrot to the recipe (no need to salt and drain the carrots).

Swap shredded sweet potatoes for the zucchini and cumin (1 T) and cilantro (1/4 c) for the thyme and basil.

If you want a stronger tomato flavor, chop a few more sun-dried tomatoes and puree them with the yogurt before topping the pancakes.

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
(65 ratings)

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.

This bean dip is packed with fiber, calcium, protein, iron and vitamins A and C. The flavor of the spinach is masked by the salsa and cumin, so it a great way to add nutrition to a delicious snack.
