all these flavors work so well together i can't believe i thought it
would be strange. the cabbage dressed in the lime vinaigrette doesn't
resemble coleslaw at all (i was worried about that) and the simmered
black beans are hearty enough to be the "meat" in these tacos. the feta
adds the right bit of sharpness to balance out every bite. i didn't use
any hot sauce like the recipe suggests - my addition of the salsa
removes the need for this. Read More
i have had twice baked potatoes before and they run the risk of being kind of dry - but these are moist, luscious and creamy. the cheddar gives a good sharp bite, the broccoli makes you feel good about eating them and the half and half and sour cream are responsible for keeping them perfectly moist. i added lemon zest for a bit of extra flavor. i love the addition of lemon zest in mashed potatoes so i figured it would work here as well.

i had torn this recipe out of Vegetarian Times
a while ago thinking that it sounded like a quick and easy week night
dinner and it lived up to that expectation. there is nothing
particularly unique or special about this dish. it is just a simple
helping of protein and vegetables. it has bold flavor and the texture
of the vegetables were great. i served it with some lemon pepper pasta.
these tostadas are really flavorful. the vegetables have excellent texture and have a bit of grill "char" that adds a lovely smokiness. the addition of the black beans simmered in salsa with a little bit of cumin is what makes this dish excellent. without it - i believe it would have been a bit blah. the avocado added a wonderful creamy texture to the crunchy vegetables. everything "played together" so well! i thought it sounded a little weird to add feta to this - but that tart bite on top was perfection.

the vegetables are bursting with big flavors from the spices and herbs.
the variety of vegetables also keeps the dish lively. just when you
thought you tasted every thing, another vegetable will surprise you.
the gravy is as hearty as any meat based gravy i ever had. all in all
is the perfect vegetarian hearty meal - it is soul food. Read More
my vegetable sandwich is a total winner! the grilling of the bread gives the sandwich a wonderful crunchy base. the hummus or borsin cheese prevent the bread from getting soggy and also lends additional flavor. the roasted vegetables - well - they rock. they are not over done and actually have flavor. last but clearly not least - you can never so wrong with some really good cheese.

these grilled vegetables are flavored by a few simple ingredients -
grill seasoning, lemon juice and olive oil. i also grill some lemon
wedges to squeeze over the top of the dish. if you have never grilled a
lemon - do so right now. the juices develop & the smoky flavor from
the grill is amazing. the polenta is soft & creamy and flavored with
garlic and shallots. i add a bit of cream and butter to the end to give
it an extra bit of creaminess. Read More
this is a hearty and robust chili. the onions and bell peppers add
great texture and the touch of sweetness needed to balance out the big
flavors from the spices. the fire roasted crushed tomatoes add that
smoky flavor that screams chili. the V8 seems strange but trust me - it
is perfect for the recipe. the black beans, pasta and crumbles add a
ton of protein to make this a complete meal you feel good about eating.
i know it is not traditional to add pasta to chili - but i love it. i
would recommend adjusting the spices to your palette. i am spice lover
so feel free to adjust down if you are not. Read More
