Pumpkin Whip

Roasting the pumpkin makes all the difference.

Veggie Black Bean Taco Salad

I cook my black beans in a pressure cooker with jalapenos, garlic, and veggie broth, but if you use canned, drain & rinse them and then saute for a couple of minutes with the garlic and jalapeno. It will make a big taste difference.

Spicy Squash & Bean Stew

A little taste of Africa on those cool nights. Add a freshly baked corn muffin and a mixed green salad to round out a wonderful meal.

Pasta Primavera

To make this dish vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

Spicy Split Pea Soup

This soup is great the day after you make it; thin with water or broth as you reheat, if desired.
