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.

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.

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

And it you look even more closely, you’ll see the residue of another  one above it where the clouds are breaking through. It is the Spring of 2014 on the Palouse. This […]
