Jamaican-Style Spicy Beans

Jamaican-Spicy-Beans by leslie cerier

Coconut milk plus lots of onion and scallion add up to a creamy and tasty sauce for this mildly spicy bean dish. I like to cook my beans from scratch with a sea vegetable to enhance their digestion and add minerals, but if you prefer, you can start with canned beans and skip the first step. Either way, this comes together quickly once you have the beans on hand. Serve with rice, steamed vegetables, and/or a green salad for a fine meal. Recipe contributed by Leslie Cerier.

Apples scented with cinnamon — YUM! When I created this pie crust recipe, I imagined an oatmeal cookie crust. Most oatmeal cookies have eggs, butter and sugar. Not this one!

Tempeh Stew with Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Potatoes, and Shiitakes

Tempeh, Brussels Sprouts, and Sweet Potato stew

Just about any type of tempeh—soy, quinoa, sesame, wild rice—works well in this stew, which tastes even better the next day. It’s a lovely main dish option for a vegan Thanksgiving table, though you can make it any time you crave something hearty and warming.  Cranberry-Orange Sauce is a perfect accompaniment.
