Spicy Corn, Potato and Green Chile Chowder

If you want to put a plant-based dinner on the table that gets an “Oh, my favorite!” response from family members instead of audible sighs, make this chowder.   This meal is my vegetarian teen son’s favorite whole food, plant-based meal.

Vegan Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chipotle Burritos

Burritos are one of my go-to comfort foods. They’re fast, filling, and so full of flavor I don’t miss the oil, cheese or sour cream. This delicious, whole-food, plant-based burrito starts with water sautéed onion and jalapeno pepper. Then I add in diced, cooked sweet potatoes and a couple of handfuls of mixed baby greens. [...]

Stir Fried Mung Beans, Cabbage and Bell Pepper with Garlic Tofu

Juicy, crunchy mung bean sprouts. I love them! I often toss a handful into a soup or stir fry, but this recipe makes them the star. These sprouts may not look especially nutritious. Pale and mostly water, there are only around 31 calories in a cup. But appearances can be deceiving. Remember, this is a [...]

Apple Carrot Cranberry Ginger Juice

It’s cranberry season! I love fresh cranberries. When they go on sale at my grocery store I stock up, putting several bags in the freezer to enjoy in later months. One of my new favorite ways to use fresh cranberries is in a juice. This juice is a good balance of tart and sweet, and [...]
