Hot New Vegan Cookbooks of 2013

Contributed by Debby Sunshine of Vegan American Princess. I’m so excited about all the new vegan cookbooks which seem to be popping up everywhere, and these aren’t just your “run-of-the-mill” cookbooks. These are written to please a wide variety of palettes, including the palettes of those who are dipping their toes into vegan waters for […]

White Pizza with Sweet Potato and Carmelized Onions

Here’s a delectably different kind of pizza—a white vegan pizza brimming with well-cooked onions, tasty sweet potato, and briny olives. Combined with most any kind of kale salad, this pizza makes a delicious fall or winter dinner.

Walnut-Apple Stuffing

If your Thanksgiving company includes eaters of mixed persuasions, vegetarians and vegan guests won’t want to eat stuffing that’s been cooked in the bird. Of course, you need not wait for special occasions to make this. Everyone loves stuffing! Of course, you can use a gluten-free bread if need be. The sweet apple and red […]

Tomato, Lentil, and Barley Soup

Meals based on low-fat, inexpensive ingredients like this nourishing tomato, lentil, and barley soup are always welcome. Serve this main-dish soup with fresh bread or cornbread and a colorful green salad to complete an easy meal. Leftovers of this soup are great to take to work or school in a container; and it freezes well, […]

One of my favorite ways to enjoy potatoes is scooped out, mashed, and stuffed right back into the shells. The skins become super crunchy on the outside, and the filling is pure creamy goodness on the inside. Using […]

Hummus, Avocado, and Baby Spinach Sandwich

One of my favorites sandwiches is this one, which essentially transforms a garden salad into sandwich filling. Despite its simplicity, this sandwich is really delicious, and the kind of lunch I look forward to all morning. Protein, healthy fats, good carbs, plenty of fiber, antioxidants…it’s all there. I use Ezekiel Breads and English Muffins for these […]

Quick and Easy Breakfasts for People on the Go

Living in today’s busy world finds most of us with limited time for many things — exercise, socialization, and perhaps most significantly, for meal preparation. The oft-quoted adage “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” is often quoted because it is true. Our first daily meal is vital for optimal mental and physical […]
