Italian-Style “Sausage” and Peppers

This homestyle Italian classic, updated with vegan sausage, makes a warming one-dish winter meal. It’s especially good served over cooked polenta. Mild, pale-green Italian frying peppers are commonly available in supermarkets and produce markets.

Poached Pears with Chocolate Drizzle

Chocolate is most compatible with pears as a winter treat. Enjoy these chocolate-drizzled poached pears as a light dessert.

Mung Dal

This recipe for mung dal is adapted from Julie Sanhi’s Classic Indian Vegetarian and Grain Cooking. Similar to dal made of red lentils, this is kind of a cross between soup, stew, and sauce, and is good scooped up with fresh flatbread.
