Jamaican Cook-Up with Black Soybeans and Greens

This is one of the quickest meals I know, although I discovered it in one of the most leisurely places on earth. Strolling along the beach near Ocho Rios in Jamaica, I came across a man cooking creamy coconut rice, smoky-tasting greens, and velvety red beans, all in an iron kettle set over a charcoal fire in a shack. He ladled out this modest food onto a paper plate, and I ate it sitting on a log beside the sea.

Easy Thai Vegetable Curry

You can use other types of Thai curry paste for this recipe, but Mussamun works very well with the potatoes and cashews.

Tofu Provencal

Tofu, high in protein, low in calories, is made from curdled soy milk, and is available in several textures. Tofu can be refrigerated for up to a week. Store tofu in water and change the water daily. This flavorful stew is delicious with pasta, rice, or steamed new potatoes.


Eggless Egg and Garden Veggie Salad

This tofu-based filling is reminiscent of a traditional egg and mayo salad recipe, but studded with raw veggies that provide color as well as a little crunch.

Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

Here’s a recipe we’ve used for years. My daughter, a senior in college, is addicted to it. While it isn’t like the Kraft thing, we find it good on potatoes, rice, or steamed broccoli and cauliflower as well as on noodles. –Sherry


Vegan Baked Pasta

Alternate Ingredients: I think this would also be good with crumbled firm tofu, especially Italian Herb “More Than Tofu” or cannellini beans in place of the TVP. –embroiderama


Vegan “Cheeseburger” Macaroni

My kids – even the pickiest ones loved it and even asked for more. There is a small amount of fat in this recipe from the vegan cheese. I’m hoping this tiny amount doesn’t upset anyone. I apologize in advance if it does. It’s so hard to find recipes that are virtually fat free that my kids like – this one fit the bill so I thought I’d share it. –Gayle


World’s Easiest Spaghetti

We eat this at least once a week. If I don’t have a quart of my own spaghetti sauce handy, I use a jar of store-bought. –serene

      In mid-September, My husband D and I joined a local CSA that will be delivering a big box of vegetables to us every Thursday for the next 3 months. Because it’s still warm here in Mississippi, summer crops are still pouring in, so every week the box has been full of zucchini, yellow squash, and eggplant. We try to […]

    • One Bowl Mix and Bake “Pumpkin” Millet Pudding
      One of the things I’m most thankful for each Fall is that it’s time to eat orange food. And one of my favorite orange foods since I was a little kid has always been winter squash. If I’m going to eat it for dinner, either stuffed or right out of the skin, two of my […]
