Vegan Tofu Saag

awesome vegan version of an Indian favorite.

Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese

great vegan substitute for dairy cream cheese!

soaking the nuts is essential for a smooth texture - you can also boil them for 10-20 mins if you're in a hurry.

you can use less lemon juice to suit your tastes.

Basic Overnight Oats

base recipe. add whatever toppings you like

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Balls

use homemade chocolate coating or microwave candy coating

Lemony Chickpea Salad

serve with pita or as a side dish. also makes a great salad topping.

Can substitute chickpeas for other items, like lentils or black beans.

Maura's Chocolate Protein Pretend Pudding

protein pudding. makes a great snack or quick breakfast!

Artichoke Hummus

adapted from Hungry Girl. Serve with pita chips or pita bread & cut veggies.

Pumpkin Dark Chocolare Chip Cake-Cookies

I sub applesauce for oil in this recipe. These are cake-like cookies with a nice fall spice flavor.

Vitamix Triple Berry Smoothie

Use any frozen unsweetened berries.

Crockpot Old-Fashioned Black Bean Soup

A brothier version of the soup. You can skip the ham bone or ham hock and use veggie stock instead of chicken stock for a vegetarian version.

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Super easy recipe. Use the chicken mixture for tacos, nachos, enchiladas, etc.

Wheat Bread (no bread machine)

no bread machine needed. makes 1 loaf. nutritional info includes whole milk, but this can be made with skim. you can also use brown sugar instead of honey. if you dough is too sticky, add a little more flour before letting rest.

Summer Escalivada

Super easy to make year round with seasonable veggies. This is the summer version. I like to serve it with crusty bread, hummus, and feta cheese.

The veggies can be either grilled or roasted; this recipe is for roasting.

Curried Lentil Soup

very filling dish for those cold fall and winter nights.

Optional, but recommended: when serving, top with greek yogurt.

looking at the nutritional info, the sodium is a bit high, but it depends on what kind of broth you use. if you are able to make a homemade broth, this can reduce the sodium. it was calculated with vegetable broth that is not homemade.

Spicy Orange Hummus

makes about 12 servings. great with veggies and pita chips

NOTE: this can taste very garlicy, so if you want to tone it down, use 1/2 to 1 clove of garlic instead of 2-3.

Lentil Soup

Makes about 8 2-cup servings.

Seafood Stew

You can also add crayfish to this recipe if desired, or any other type of fish that you prefer.

Banana Mousse

Nutrition info is for 1/2 cup serving.

Chicken Enchiladas

Yummy! this recipe originally was for 4 tortillas, but it spreads out to 8.

I serve with non-fat plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream

Incredible! (1 rating)
Basic Hummus with Greek Yogurt

Great basic recipe that you can dress up any way you like. The greek yogurt and lemon add a nice zest to the flavor.

Nutrition info is based on a 2 tbsp serving size.

Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe can make about 60 smaller cookies. I like mine on the softer side, so I make them a little bigger, which yields about 30-40 cookies.

If you are using a dark or non-stick pan, reduce your oven temp by about 25 degrees.

Pumpkin Ravioli

This recipe and nutritional info includes the dough, but you can also use store-bought wanton wrappers if you don't want the hassle of making the dough.

The Best Black Bean Brownies-Vegan

Very Good (6 ratings)

Best with homade stock. My boyfriend's brothier version of the classic.
