Breakfast Smoothie

This is a great tool to pack in vegetables and fruits and thus antioxidants and nutrients.  Please note that overall, we are meant to chew our food, allowing enzymes in the mouth to start breaking down carbohydrates, and exercise needed facial muscles.  Souse this gem-of-a-recipe mindfully, and not everyday.

Further, because the blender breaks down fiber, carbohydrate enters the blood stream rapidly, which may not be good for those with metabolic syndrome, glucose or insulin sensitivity, overweight or obesity, or vascular disease.  

Black Bean Soup (from scratch)

Make this a regular!  
This recipe starts with dried beans, but canned are fine too - saute 

Marcia's Four-Bean Salad

Here’s a handy picnic recipe. Pick four cans of beans: preferably low sodium. (I use 2 green, 1 yellow & 1 salad)

Winter Stew

This is a ‘tried and true’ recipe that I have been making for many years. It really is delicious, and perfect for the chilly season….

Pronto Pasta Primavera

Enliven every pasta dish with added vegetables!  Here's a basic recipe to motivate you.

The SD Basic Burger

Here's a basic burger that can be dressed up in many tastes and ethnicities. You can actually use most any beans, (pinto, butter, canellini, black...), so experiment as you get comfortable.

Stuffed Cabbage (or Peppers)

This is a comforting, traditional eastern European dish that tastes every bit as good as my baba's (grandma's)!  Feel free to switch the pilaf stuffing to any left over grain, squash or potato in the fridge!

Spinach Tofu Soufflé

Enjoy this baked French classic without animal products.  This cheesy sauce can also be used in other recipes that use cheese.  It's also good over baked potatoes, steamed vegetables and grains!

Carrot Dogs

I love this creation!  Who would have guessed that the humble carrot can be all dressed up to be a fancy dog!

A side of baked beans, and any frozen or steamed veggies makes a meal.  (Salads are always welcome too.)

Fresh Fruit Tart

I always try to use fresh berries from the garden for this beautiful and quick snack.

Ginger Roasted Tempeh w/ Vegetables

This is a lovely, meaty dish that can be modified with vegetables that you have around.
 
If aiming for gluten-free, make sure that the tempeh does not have barley.

Asparagus Soup

You know it's spring when local asparagus abounds.  Celebrate with this satisfying soup!
