Breakfast
Tofu Scramble
Loved it! The best scramble I've had. The spice mix is great to have on hand, and I loved the addition of spinach, I haven't tried that before. (eldsjal)
Perfect Oatmeal

Buckwheat Pancakes

Jalapeño Corn Cakes

Buttermilk Biscuits
Nice! Not to different from bp biscuits, but a nice switch up all the same! (dannibazaar)
Rosemary Home Fries

Cherry Almond Granola

Zucchini Muffins

Raisin Bran Muffins

Very Berry Muffins

Appetizers
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Yummy. I love roasted red pepper hummus, and I liked the kick of curry powder. And not too much oil or tahini, that's a good thing in my opinion. (eldsjal)
Roasted Eggplant and Garlic Hummus

Spinach Chickpea Dip

Lettuce Wraps

Polenta and Eggplant Napoleons

Veggie Wontons with Ginger Miso Dipping Sauce

Baked Samosas with Cilantro Mint Chutney

Soups
Potato Corn Chowdah

Tortilla Soup

Black Bean Soup

Miso Soup with Edamame

Black Eyed Pea Soup

Curried Carrot Ginger Soup

Mom's Lentil Soup
Definetely one of my favorite lentil soups. It's divine! And it tastes even better as leftovers. So good. (eldsjal)

Salads
Daily Green Salads

Antipasto Salad

Taco Salad
Made it for a potluck lunch and it was really good.  I used black beans instead of kidney beans and canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh because that is what I had at home.  I really enjoyed it and could eat it for lunch by myself. (biodancer)
Minty Summer Fruit Salad

Barley and Avocado Salad

Texas Caviar

Goddess Pasta Salad
Made it for a bbq this weekend and it was a big hit.  I didn't add the cucumbers because my mom doesn't like them. I thought it was great and it makes a ton to feed a lot of people.  The only problem was that it dried up a bit too quickly.  I made it in the morning and served it in the afternoon and by that time the pasta had soaked up a lot of the dressing.  It still tasted great and got good reviews from everyone.  Next time I may double the dressing or serve it right away. (biodancer)
A bit of a disappointment. I've heard so many great things about this recipe, but it didn't live up to my expectations. I don't think it tasted very much at all. But I'll eat it until it goes bad (the rest of the week that is, it makes a lot). (eldsjal)
Couscous Chickpea Salad

Quinoa Tabouli

Carrot Salad with Herb Lime Dressing

Wild Rice Salad

Sauces, Salsas and Toppings
Sundried Tomato Cream Sauce

Ratatouille Pasta Sauce

Marinara

Béchamel Sauce
Used it in the butternut squash lasagna. It was perfect. Not too much margarine, but still creamy and buttery. I'm gonna try the herbed variation soon and pour it over pasta. (eldsjal)
Pesto

Mexican Pesto

Lemon Artichoke Pesto

Mushroom Gravy

Almond Milk Gravy
So good. Great on the buttermilk biscuits. (dannibazaar)
Lemon Tahini Dressing
Too bitter and sour. Could use some agave syrup. (eldsjal)
Creamy Pepita Dressing

Tangy Sour Cream
My go-to homemade sour cream. It gets its tang from lime juice, and while some people may think it tastes too much lime, I love it. It's so good with the tamale pie! (eldsjal)
Nacho Sauce
Your ordinary nooch sauce. It's easy and doesn't disappoint. I use it all the time. (eldsjal)
Guacamole

Mango Salsa

Raw Corn Salsa

Birthday Salsa

Chipotle Ranch Sandwich Spread

Tapenade

Sunflower Feta

Vegan Parmesan
(I finally found brown rice flour).  Not bad.  I used a little on Vcon's Penne Vodka.  I like it just by itself. (biodancer)
I use chickpea flour instead of brown rice flour, and the last time I made it I added some white miso which gave it an even cheesier taste. A staple! (eldsjal)

Sides
Simply Sweet Potatoes

Braised Cauliflower

Lemon Pepper Chard

Collard Greens

Sesame Green Beans

Pickled Onions

Creamy Herbed Polenta

Spiced Applesauce
Easy to make, but way too sweet. If I make it again I would use way less sugar, probably about half the amount. (disneyfav)
Lemon Rice

Green wa
Not a favorite. I love quinoa, but this turned out mushy and bland. I might make another variation of it sometime in the future though. (eldsjal)
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes

Roasted Roots

Refried Black Beans

Dirrrty Rice and Beans

Mains
Simple Chicken Style Seitan

Mustard Crusted Seitan

Crispy Beer Battered Seitan

Tofu Marsala

Baked Mac and Cheese

Spinach Lasagna

Butternut Squash Lasagna
This was heavenly! When I made it, I was certain I wouldn't like it. I thought it would be bland and I usually hate sage, which the recipe calls for. But I followed the recipe exactly, except using dried sage instead of fresh and adding some nooch to the tofu, and it turned out to be one of the tastiest lasagnas I've ever had! (eldsjal)
Penne Alfredo

Pasta E Fagioli

Kasha Varnishkes

Grilled Portabellos

Asparagus with Spinach and Artichoke Cream Sauce

Thai Bowl

Sloppy Joannas
So much better than Snobby Joes from Vcon in my opinion.  I'm not a huge fan of TVP but I liked this enough to have two sandwiches last night for dinner and bring the rest in for lunch today! (biodancer)
I actually like the Snobby Joes better than this... It wasn't bad, but I'm so used to the Snobby Joes. I think I'll stick to them. (eldsjal)
Chana Masala

Cajun Spiced Tofu

White Beans and Kale
i didn't have white beans so i used canned kidney beans, which seemed just fine.  then at the end i added a handful of cherry tomatoes.  i thought it was really good..  at first i was put off by the lack of flavors she added, but since i managed not to burn the shallots/garlic for once, it turned out just perfect.  the idea of rubbing the lemon juice into the kale before you put it into the pan (i usually add my lemon juice later) was genius.  it didn't make it too lemony, but there was a nice hint.  so far, so good.  most of the food seems like comfort food though...  but i'm ok with that since fall's here and that's my comfort food season.

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Flautas

Tamale Pie
I've made this twice so far, and the first time I wasn't impressed at all. But then I made the mistake to add extra veggies so it turned out too liquid-y, and I also used shredded soy cheese. The second time, I followed the recipe more carefully and used the nacho sauce instead of soy cheese. So much better! Especially with guacamole and tangy sour cream. Yum! (eldsjal)
Better than Basic Veggie Chili

Northwest Meets Southwest Chili
AWESOME! Loved it! (finnegan)
Sweet Things
Aloha Bread

Cherry Compote

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Bars

Mojito Pie

Lemon Almond Cake
Really good, but I like it better without the glaze, which made it too sweet for me. I chopped up strawberries and added them to the batter, and that made it even better. (disneyfav)
Spice Cake
This is very delicious. Not too high in fat, either. I've made it twice now. Both at home and at the yoga studio, everyone loved this. (dannibazaar)
