Baked Chickpea Ratatouille

Chickpea Ratatouille by Dreena BurtonThis recipe is one of my favorites. It’s much like a ratatouille, but using chickpeas instead of the traditional eggplant and zucchini, and an original spice combination. The result is a dish with a complexity of flavors and the bonus of minimal preparation! Contributed by Dreena Burton, from Vive le Vegan!*

Thai Chickpea Almond Curry

Dreena Burton's 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.

This cake has just a light banana flavor combined with fragrant vanilla. The banana helps add stability and moistness, so don’t leave it out to make a vanilla-only cake. It is such a subtle flavor that is most lovely, and the cake is fluffy and moist, perfect for any special occasion. Recipe reprinted from Let Them Eat Vegan* by Dreena Burton (Da Capo, © 2012), by permission.
