Au Gratin White Beans & Kale

Au Gratin White Beans & Kale

  We’re in the thick of winter and all I can think about is comfort food. I need a filling meal morning, noon, and night….as well as forty billion snacks a day. Yet no matter what I eat, I’m still hungry from the minute I wake up to the time I close my eyes to...
Veggie Shepherd’s Pie

Veggie Shepherd’s Pie

A few years ago I tore this recipe out of a magazine, and then tweaked it by adding in garlic, worstechire sauce, changing up the veggie amounts, and occasionally adding red pepper flakes (gotta love spice).  It’s nice to get the family to eat some vegetarian recipes, especially with the popularity of Meatless Mondays. This...
Black Bean Bulgur Burgers

Black Bean Bulgur Burgers

Burgers aren’t just for meat lovers; there’s no reason vegetarians have to be excluded from burger heaven! At restaurants and BBQs, you’ll typically see a blandly dense black bean patty that tastes like cardboard and goes down even harder. So, a couple years ago, I started making my own burgers at home. For this recipe...
Chickpea Panzanella

Chickpea Panzanella

It’s no secret that I love chickpeas, and it’s definitely no secret that I’m addicted to bread. Because of these twin addictions, I thought it would be a great idea to include both ingredients in a simple panzanella salad. It’s surprisingly light with lots of fresh flavors (basil, oregano, veggies) and the raspberry balsamic vinegar...
Veg Jambalaya “Fiesta Rice & Bean Patties”

Veg Jambalaya “Fiesta Rice & Bean Patties”

I accidentally doubled my recipes the last time I made my vegetable jambalaya…so I needed creative ways to use up the extra. I decided to toss in some beans for protein and make a patty! It’s really taste, crisp on the outside and moist inside. Try it out! 1 ½ cups vegetable jambalaya ½ –...
Chickpea Vegetable Broil

Chickpea Vegetable Broil

My mom convinced me to put this chickpea and vegetable broil up. It’s a recipe I make frequently, but just never thought other people would be interested in. It’s really good, so I thought I’d finally share. Fresh veggies are mixed in with protein packed chickpeas, and then broiled under a cheesy crust. It tastes...
Black Beans and Rice

Black Beans and Rice

I like cooking with black beans…it’s neat to have a splash of black that contrast with the other colors on your plate. And the beans taste great, so I tend to use them a lot – I seriously make this black beans and rice dish weekly. It’s not entirely traditional, but it’s a recipe I...
Veg Stuffed Peppers

Veg Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are so simple to make, but when you serve them everyone is like “oooo!”. It’s great to make ahead and then stick in the oven when you’re ready to cook! The leftovers make a great lunch and you really won’t be disappointed with this recipe. The red pepper makes it slightly sweet, so...
Easy Bean Chili

Easy Bean Chili

There’s nothing as hearty as a bowl of chili. This recipe is so easy to follow that you’ll wonder why others take so long to make! It’s all about big flavors with a slight hint of heat that comes through at the end. My mom likes it less spicy, so if you’re like her just...
