String Beans and Mushroom Curry

Last thanksgiving I made string bean casserole for a family dinner party.  Since it came out so good, it inspired me to transform it into an Indian style curry.  I omitted those specific ingredients and herbs that were used in the string bean casserole.  Instead I used the curry powder and chili powder to spice…

Vegan Stuffed Peppers

A few years back when we went to Greece, I had the opportunity to try some awesome Greek food. Me being vegetarian I had no problem finding vegetarian food.  One of the items I enjoyed was the stuffed peppers (and of course stuffed tomatoes).  I had been thinking of making this so delicious food, some…

Spicy Vegan Bulgur Pulav

Mung Bean Threads with Sautéed Kale

Oatmeal Patties with Raspberry Sauce

Oats are amazingly healthy and hearty food.  Instead of the regular oatmeal, make this simple but a luscious fruit infused oatmeal breakfast.  You can make the oatmeal ahead of time, even the prior night and saute the patties for a hot breakfast. I have never frozen these oatmeal patties, but it might be possible.  I…
