This vegan hamburger helper style recipe has received rave reviews. It is a quick, easy and absolutely delicous family meal.
1 can green beans, drained, 16 oz.
1 can wax beans, drained, 16 oz….
3 cups sprouted lentils
3 cups chopped fresh parsley…
This is my favorite salad so far, and I made it up pretty much by myself. (Hence the lack of precise measurements.) It looks a bit messy but tastes great.
4 cups cooked garbanzos-(allow to cool)

2 chopped, cooked onions…

I’ve had a lot of trouble in the past with heading vegetables; sometimes they never form heads or, if they do, hungry hungry caterpillars get to eat them before I do. But last fall, I planted tiny cabbage plants […]
- Elegy for the Blackberry BrambleOne summer morning a few months before I began writing this blog in the fall of 2012, I went out to water my garden on Asbury Street. When I came to the vegetables across from my berry patch, I looked up to see the August sun hitting this dew-speckled spider web in such a way […]
