Green Beans With Walnut-Miso Sauce

Though higher in fat than most of our recipes, this delicious side dish is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Serve with your favorite vegetarian sushi.

Garlicky Greens

A good way to prepare Swiss chard, kale, collard greens, or spinach, this can accompany both Eastern – and Western – style noodle dishes.


This is a traditional South African recipe, adapted from its meat-based origins. It is not only fabulous, it is utterly simple. Never fails to get raves from guests.

Here is an Iranian casserole that originally asks for meat, but I just leave that out without replacement. I’m sure you could use something else instead.

Harvest Mexican Squash

Here’s a recipe I adapted for e2L from a cookbook that I used to love when I first started cooking vegetarian called Beyond the Moon Cookbook by Ginny Callan. It is a book that is quite heavy on the dairy products, so I don’t use it much nowadays.
