Italian Eggplant Casserole with Cashew-Tofu Ricotta

This is my healthy, gluten-free substitute for eggplant parmigiana. Not frying the eggplant saves time and calories, and both of those can be at a premium. Its very saucy and perfect over pasta.

Thai Chickpea Almond Curry

While this bakes, you will be enchanted with the aromatic mingling of nutty coconut sauce infused with lime, ginger, and curry. It is a deeply flavorful dish that is also almost effortless in preparation. Everything comes together lickety-split and you have an exotic bean entrée to serve over rice. Recipe reprinted from Let Them Eat […]

Asian Peanut Stir-Fry with Black Rice

Brown rice is fine for a quick dinner, but the lovely color of black rice will make this dish extra special. Tempeh or baked tofu and peanuts add plenty of protein, and using a frozen Asian vegetable blend makes this super-quick as a weeknight meal.

Black-Eyed Peas with Rice and Plantains

This deliciously different dish of black-eyed peas and brown rice features plantains, which look like bananas and taste a bit starchier and less sweet. They’re very easy to cook. Boil them for about 5 minutes, or until the seams split open, peel, and cut into chunks. Recipe from The Oldways 4-Week Vegetarian & Vegan Diet Menu […]

Signed copies of Nava’s books — great holiday gifts!

I have a good supply of Vegan Holiday Kitchen on hand, so I’m putting them on sale here for the same price you’d pay on Amazon, with the shipping. In addition, I just received a batch of my 2009 book of humor, Secret Recipes for the Modern Wife, at a bargain price. These orders go […]

Loving Your Lentils: How to Cook and Use Them

Long considered a “poor man’s food,” lentils are actually a rich source of protein and nutrients and are easily digested. Best known as a main component of thick, filling soups, lentils are an important staple in Indian cuisine. Small and rather flat, lentils cook quickly and are highly flavored and aromatic. 

Cashew or Pecan Blondies

These blondies are from Sweet and Easy Vegan* by Robin Asbell. I was originally attracted to this recipe due to the sprinkling of coarse salt over the top. As someone without much of a sweet tooth, but with a penchant for salt, I knew that this would send this treat over the top for me, and indeed, it did! […]

Fresh From the Vegan Slow Cooker by Robin Robertson

Reviewed by Dianne Wenz. I’m a big fan of my slow cooker and an even bigger fan of Robin Robertson, so earlier in the year when I heard that she was working on a new vegan slow cooker cookbook, I began to eagerly await the date of it’s release. Fortunately, the wait is now over, and […]

Amaranth, an Underused Ancient Grain

Amazing amaranth, once a revered drop of the ancient Aztecs, is now coming back into use via the natural-food market. Native to Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, and Bolivia, grain amaranth (as it is often called, to distinguish it from vegetable amaranth, a closely related plant) is a tiny, round seed, about half the size of a […]

Roasted Vegetable Recipes

If you love roasted vegetables, either on their own or incorporated into other dishes, you’ll find lots of recipes here on VegKitchen. Exposing uncooked vegetables to high temperatures (similar to what happens on the grill) draws the natural sugars to the surface, heightening their flavors. And the aroma that permeates your kitchen in the process […]

Black Bean Sloppy Joes

These black bean sloppy joes are a go-to recipe that you can make even when you’re at the tail end of a wearisome day. It’s delicious with a big salad or coleslaw and baked sweet potatoes or, if time or patience aren’t an issue, Potato or Sweet Potato Oven “Fries.” Recipe and photo contributed by April […]

Peanut Butter Dip for Apples or Veggies

I whipped this up one afternoon as a quick snack and served it with apple sticks. The next morning I spread it on toast for breakfast. This could make a great lunch served with a green smoothie and fresh veggie sticks. Contributed by April Jones.
