Thanksgiving Bean Casserole

Vegetarians enjoy the flavors of Thanksgiving too! This bean casserole is a little bit sweet, a little bit savory, a whole lot festive – and can be made ahead.   Any vegetarians coming to your house for Thanksgiving dinner this year?

Vegetarian Orange – Chicken Stir Fry

It’s World Vegetarian Day and the beginning of Vegetarian Awareness Month! That means it is the perfect time to commit to eating a healthier, less meat diet.

Sweet and Sour Stir-Fry Sauce

I don’t ever remember my mother making a stir-fried meal when I was growing up. Guess it just wasn’t part of the New England Puritan dinner repertoire in those days. But my husband bought me a wok before we were in college, and stir-fries have become a weekly, and at times almost daily, meal ever […]

I don’t dislike tempeh, but it is an acquired taste, so to speak. For the uninitiated, tempeh is made from fermented soybeans […]

Vegetarian Burgers

Vegetarian Burgers

When I was a kid, Friday night was cheeseburger night. But I didn’t eat hamburger even then, so Friday night was American cheese-melted-on a-hamburger-bun night for me. Luckily, my tastes have improved. In my old age I have found an appreciation for burgers – the vegetarian kind. Yes, I can buy commercially made burgers at […]

Vegetarian Tamale Pie with Lentil Ground Beef

Vegetarian Tamale Pie with Lentil Ground Beef

We vegetarians love comfort food as much as anyone else. We just like it to be a little healthier (usually!). The other night it was cold and damp – the perfect time for tamale pie – so I made this easy version from my cookbook, Homestyle Favorites Made Meatless. (Yes, I love comfort food so […]

Vegan Broth Powders

Make it Yourself – Vegan Broth Powders

Anyone who cooks dinner at home on a regular basis sooner or later runs into this problem – what to use for broth? I finally became disgusted with searching for just the right product with no luck, and  now make my own broth powders, but the road thus far has been filled with experiments. Over […]
