I’m always on the hunt for new dip ideas. This was an experiment I am quite pleased with. It is quick, filling and delicious, not to mention healthy!
4 or 5 cans rinsed beans (e.g. dark red, black, white, chickpea, and kidney)
1 mango, diced into small pieces…
1 3/4 c Filtered water or vegetable stock
1 c Couscous, medium size, toasted…
Delicious Smoothie with protein from kale
This is a great quick meal. To make the sauce richer, use more soy milk and less water.
Sometimes I also add a bit of curry paste dissolved in hot water.

I love thick, hearty chili in cold weather. It’s always so satisfying and filling, so it makes a great comfort food…especially when served my favorite way: over warm grits!
- Oil-Free Baked Portobello FriesCrispy on the outside, tender on the inside, these baked portobello fries are vegan and completely oil-free. Try them with Horseradish Comeback Sauce! Do you know why vegan cooks are so creative? I think it’s because we’re constantly being tempted by interesting dishes on restaurant menus that are “vegan except for.” You know, the chickpea appetizer […]
- Cauliflower PopcornWhen I was growing up, my Dad didn’t do a lot of cooking. And when he did cook, he tended to burn things. I can remember a few rather mournful weekends sitting at the kitchen booth in the house I grew up in on Fernandez Drive, while my mother was away on a Catholic retreat, […]
