Millet is an excellent grain to use for stuffing vegetables, since it cooks to a slightly adhesive quality. And using small orange squashes makes for a festive and filling entrée.

Here is one that is always a stand-by for any holiday gathering–usually Thanksgiving. It is great as a main dish or as a side dish.
This was the best vegan stuffing I’ve ever tasted. Even the meat eaters loved it and commented that the mushroom gave it a wonderful texture. I adapted this recipe from one I found somewhere on the internet. I wasn’t exact on the spice measurements (meaning I didn’t level off the top of the measuring spoon).
Quinoa is incredibly nutritious and delicious. It is the quickest cooking whole grain, as it takes less than 20 minutes. Cook a big batch and then use 2 cups to make this great looking and tasting salad or just follow the recipe. Once you taste it, you’ll want to make it often. The nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy taste. As always, use the best fresh ingredients you can get. This salad sings, “It’s Summer”.

Here is another one I use at holidays–it always looks impressive with the colors from the fruit and herbs (do use fresh mint if you can–dried is not the same!) I think I adapted it from one of Mollie Katzen’s cookbooks. This salad keeps very well, and is great to have on hand for lunches and snacks.

- Crispy Fat-Free Spanish PotatoesVegan and oil-free, these fat-free Spanish Potatoes are pre-cooked and then air fried, making them crunchy and spicy on the outside, creamy on the inside. Lately I find that much of my cooking inspiration comes from going out to restaurants with few vegan options and being forced by hunger to order something I wouldn’t ordinarily […]
- Thinking About My ThingsWhen I first began to teach myself how to draw again, I focused a lot on objects from life or from photographs that captured my eye. It took me a long time to attempt to draw something from memory. When I do draw from memory, I learn a lot about what was most prominent […]
