Tri-color Quinoa and Greens Taco Filling

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!

Baked Falafel Pita Sandwich

I have to say our Pita sandwich dinner turned out quite delicious! The crispy baked falafel patties were well flavored with a blend of fresh herbs and traditional middle eastern spices. –kaitsinsidedish

Southwestern Black Bean Burgers

The delicious blend of southwestern flavor paired with the the creamy pureed black beans make for an exquisitely flavorful veggie patty. Plus adding the cornmeal to the mixture also helped to give these patties a crispy texture once baked. –from kaitsinsidedish

Marinated Portobella Sandwich

I like to serve this with a fresh salad full of different greens including arugula, lots of veggies, avacado, and apricot slices (or peach, nectarine, etc.), and use a raspberry dressing.

Baked Falafel Sandwich

If you’ve been craving the deep-fried falafel served in Middle Eastern restaurants but don’t want all the fat, this baked falafel is for you. Cooked chickpeas are combined with a blend of exotic herbs and spices, formed into a patty, and then pan-browned before baking. Stuff it into a warm pita with crispy vegetables and top it with tahini sauce–delicious!

Bean Spread with Italian Herbs

This is really yummy in sandwiches or on toast with sliced fresh tomatoes and other traditional sandwich veggies. And it’s especially good with a little roasted garlic spread on the bread or toast as well!

Chunky Bean Spread

Delicious on fresh whole-grain or rye bread, you can use leftovers of this tasty spread as a dip for tortilla chips. If using as a dip, thin the consistency with a bit of water if necessary.

    • Coconut Kissed Pumpkin-Persimmon Pie with Millet Carob Crust
        (Or, “My, My, Me Oh My, I Love Pie”) Does anyone remember the John Travolta movie Michael about an angel who behaves most unlike an angel? Nora Ephron wrote the screen play. Pie is very important to the plot of that movie and its off-beat treatment of disillusion and faith. So if you’ve never seen […]
