Pumpkin Tomato Bisque

A quick and easy soup made from can pumpkin and tomatoes.

Quinoa, Bean, and Vegetable Stew

1 1/2 cups diced leek
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/2 cup diced zucchini…

Vegetarian Mulligatawny

I made this in my Crock-Pot one raw rainy Sunday, and it was pure comfort food. The next day, it even tasted better!

Lentil Barley Soup

Thick enough to be called a stew, this hearty soup is easy to prepare and cooks in a single pot. Add more water or stock if you wish to have a thinner soup.

Gingery Split Pea Soup

Chipotle chile provides the essential smokiness while the sliced ginger offers only a background hint of flavor. Cooked to a golden creaminess, the split peas are enhanced with sautéed, almost carmelized, vegetables and finished with a little miso, which contributes its distinctive richness.

White Bean Stew

This is a great recipe that tastes even better the next day. You can add as much garlic as 2 whole bulbs without it being overpowering–just be careful not to chop the cloves. For a stronger garlic taste, I mash a few of the cloves against the side of the pot as it cooks.

Portabella and White Bean Cassoulet

A very hearty stew that, because of the portabella mushrooms, tastes downright meaty.

Red, Gold, Black And Green Chili

This is one of our favorite chili recipes, adapted slightly to be fatfree. In my opinion, it makes more than 4 servings– consider them 4 big servings!

Lebanese Vegetable Stew with Chickpeas

Here’s a recipe that’s perfect for both the Fuhrman and McDougall programs. I got it from the Veg-Recipes list, but I’ve adapted it to remove the olive oil that was used to sauté the onion. I also reduced the amount of allspice because I made it as it was listed (1/2 tsp) and it was a little overwhelming. Even with the full amount of allspice, it was very tasty–even my six-year-old liked it, and she claims not to like eggplant.

Lentil Chili 2

This chili is incredibly versatile. It freezes forever, it reheats as many times as you dare, you can have it with baked potatoes, in tortillas, under mashed potato.

Fast Mexican Stew

Easy and excellent!

Corn, Bean, and Pumpkin Stew

2 cans pinto beans, canned
1 lb tomatoes — fresh or canned, peeled and chopped, juice reserved…

Jacob’s Lentil Stew

1 cup lentils
4 cups cold water…

Spiced Butternut Squash and Lentil Soup

A very simple but satisfying soup–actually more like a stew. Put it in your crockpot in the morning, and come home to a wonderful meal!

Curried Sweet Potato and White Bean Soup

3 ribs celery, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium yams or sweet potatoes…

    • Vegan Gluten-Free Peach Cobbler
      I grew up with peach trees in the garden, and it pains me a little to have to pay money to buy peaches imported from Alabama every summer. But truth be told, our homegrown peaches were always on the small side, compared to the juicy globes of sweetness I now get from our farm stand.... […]

        This memory sketch is the view from above my neighborhood’s north beach access, late afternoon, Autumn Equinox. The actual equinox point was about 2 hours before we arrived, at about the same time the tide was at its highest point that day. The wild ocean of late has reclaimed a lot of the sand […]
