Baked Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Curry Chickpeas

Share

I love a good, hearty plant-based meal.  This one fits the bill and it’s full of flavor. It comes together very quickly, especially if you microwave the sweet potatoes, so it’s a great candidate for a healthy weeknight meal.

This recipe makes 4 stuffed sweet potatoes, enough for 2 as an entree, or 4 as a […]

Pasta e Ceci (Pasta with Chickpeas)

Share

We ate this last night for dinner. After all these years, do you think the boys shared it with us? Nope. Do you think the boys wanted to try it? Um, nope. Some things never change. I even made it vegetarian, so it would potentially appeal to my vegetarian son. No luck.

This dish was delicious […]

Braised Coconut Spinach and Chickpeas with Lemon

We try to have meatless Mondays in our home and last Monday was no exception. It makes my son the vegetarian very happy. He never likes to eat things like this, he’s just happy that we’re not hurting any animals.

I am always drawn to recipes that stew vegetables in coconut milk. Yum! I made a […]

The Simplest Bean Burgers

I thought these burgers were incredibly tasty.  The recipe is very versatile – you can basically use any type of bean, and any type of seasoning spice.   I chose chick peas and a barbeque spice rub.    These burgers came together in no time at all – a couple of pulses in the food processor […]

Corn and Black Bean Salad with Basil-Lime Vinaigrette

Share

I love corn salads and I love bean salads, so for me this salad is heaven!   Like most great recipes that I find, I’ve made it twice within the last couple of days, and I’ve had three helpings this afternoon alone.   The vinaigrette makes the salad taste so fresh which I attribute to the lime […]
