This recipe is one of my favorites because it has a ton of leeway. No red peppers? Use green peppers or toss in the leftover cooked veggies from last night. No quinoa? Leftover millet or even brown rice would do the job just fine. Just imagine cleaning out the fridge one a week on taco night!
Savory oats are my latest obsession. These steel cut oats retain an al dente quality to them just like arborio rice does in a risotto. Recipe by Geekypoet.

To serve, ladle soup into individual bowls. Sprinkle with pumpkin or sunflower seeds
A hearty side dish for everyday or holiday meals.
- Vegan Chou Farci (Cabbage Stuffed with Barley and Lentils)For the first time, my garden managed to produce not one but four heads of cabbage. 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.
