1 cup bulgur
Very quick meal. You can make this lower in salt by using home-cooked dry beans and defrosted frozen green beans instead of canned. I always keep cooked dried beans in zip lock bags in the freezer – they thaw under running water in about the same time it takes to open a can.
1 cup moong sprouts, washed and drained dry
2 oranges, segmented, peeled, deseeded…
1 Cantaloupe, peeled and cut into large chunks
2 teaspoons chopped gingerroot…
1 bag field salad
1 can sweet corn…
The trick to this great salad is the marinating and baking of the tofu.
Edamame are vibrant, tasty green soybeans in the shells, and are readily available in most frozen sections of supermarkets and health food stores. If edamame is not readily available, you can substitute chick peas.

1-15 oz. can chick peas
1 cup cooked wheat berries…

1/2 of 1 medium mango, cut into 1/3″ dice…
3 cups peeled and cubed (1/2 inch) English Cucumber
3 cups cubed (1/2 inch) seedless watermelon…
1 ear fresh white or yellow corn
1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped…
- Mega Veggie Vegan ChiliMy husband’s birthday was last Friday, and I thought I’d be sharing his birthday cake (a carrot cake) with you rather than veggie chili, but in cooking (as in all things) it doesn’t pay to take things for granted. The cake was not a success. It sank in the middle and was only edible because... […]
- Circling In The Invisible GrassI don’t remember how old I was when I first heard the explanation of why dogs circle around before laying down, but my fascination with the enchanting instinct to tamp down invisible grass has stayed with me all of my life. It’s fair to say I’ve internalized that fascination at a very deep level. Most […]
