Zucchini and Beans on Pasta

Zucchini and Beans on Pasta

My garden is bursting with zucchini and basil right now, so I thought I’d share a favorite recipe. I’m not sure where it came from, I think a magazine. I jotted it down on a post-it and it became something the whole family loves.

Savory Potato Pear Stew

This stew was inspired by a vacation—it was time to clear out the fridge, stoke up on immune boosting beta-carotene and have leftovers in the freezer upon our return home.

Holiday Lentil Loaf

Lentils, wild rice, and walnuts combined in a delicious meatless loaf.

Creamy Pumpkin Soup

A delicious, creamy soup with no cream or added fat.

Cranberry Stuffed Squash

Acorn squash stuffed with spiced cranberries and pears.

Mixed Squash and Mushroom Sauté with Quinoa

For a delicious fall meal, serve this with sautéed soy sausage links and a salad of mixed baby greens and tomatoes.

Millet-Stuffed Golden Squashes

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.

Holiday Stuffed Pumpkin

This is the recipe I have used for my Thanksgiving centerpiece for over 25 years. It has always been a favorite with everyone who has celebrated the holidays with us over the years.

Miniature Pumpkins Stuffed With Spiced Lentils

The lentils are delicious when served without the pumpkin, too. Adapted from 365 Ways to Cook Vegetarian. Plan on one “Jack Be Little” or other miniature pumpkin per person.

Wild Rice Stuffed Roasted Squash

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.

Crockpot Vegan Stuffing

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).

Fall Pumpkin and Lentil Stew

A delicious Fall stew you can make in your crockpot or in a regular saucepan.

Cranberry Sauce

This is a simple cranberry sauce, easy to make and delicious. I have been serving this sauce with our Thanksgiving feast for years.

Mushroom-Tomato Sauce

This is a delicious tomato sauce that is wonderful on pasta, baked potatoes or over rice. It tastes even better the day after it is made and may also be frozen.

    • Crispy Fat-Free Spanish Potatoes
      Vegan 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 Things
        When 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 […]
