Recipes I've Shared:

Quick Minestrone

If you are in a hurry, you can just use canned beans and increase the vegetable broth to 6 cups. The cannellini beans can be made the day before, stored in their broth and used when you make your soup. This is how this becomes a "quick" minestrone.
In the winter/spring I use frozen green beans and canned tomatoes from my summer garden and fresh chard which grows like a blessing all year round. In the summer, in goes the ubiquitous zucchini. This quick minestrone has about 7 servings of veggies in each bowl!

Mushroom Gravy - serving size: 1/4 cup

Chanterelles are wonderful in this gravy. If you can't find chanterelles, use creminis

Vegan Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

ADAPTED FROM VEGNEWS.COM: I changed the recipe, adding 50% more melted chocolate as a swirl along with 2 Tbsp of peanut butter, also swirled in. Original recipe had too little of a chocolaty taste and too much taste of the cream "cheese".

Vegan Boston Brown Bread
