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.

- Cranberry-Carrot Cake from Vegan Holiday KitchenSix years ago, I was honored to work with Nava Atlas, taking the photos for her book Vegan Holiday Kitchen. It was a gorgeous hard-backed book, and I’m happy to announce it’s just come out in an equally beautiful paperback version, with full-color photographs on heavy, high-quality paper. To celebrate, I asked Nava if I... […]
- A Little Night MagicMy parents were sticklers for honoring the traditional 12 Days of Christmas, which hardly anyone seems to recognize anymore. The traditional 12 days of Christmas are bookended by Christmas Eve, the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6th. In between are days that have both pagan and Christian significance. In even earlier times the […]
