  • Recipe: Open-Faced BBQ Tempeh Sandwich

    From Bryant Terry's wonderful Vegan Soul Food, this grill-friendly recipe is perfect for sunny days. Don't be afraid of tempeh! Cooked right, it's wonderfully textured and savory--pleasing to meat-eaters and the rest of us.

  • Recipe: Little Potato and Sweet Potato Pancakes

    Savory and sweet, anyone who eats this won't even pause to consider whether they're vegetarian or vegan--they're just good food, which is what matters. From Bryant Terry's Vegan Soul Kitchen.

  • For Vegetarian, a Strange New World

    After giving up meat, the author finds surprising challenges in all facets of his life--especially from Grandma. Even dating is changed by his new dietary lifestyle. Believe it or not, his cooking actually improves. Includes recipes for vegetarian dishes to please anyone, meat-eater or no.

  • Recipe: Black Bean and Jalapeno Soup

    Adapted from Bobby Flay's excellent nearly-vegetarian recipe, this spicy southwestern soup, meat-free, is a pleasure as a side dish or entree.

  • Recipe: Roasted Vegetable Stock

    I was amazed at how much I missed chicken stock, especially when making the soups and sauces that so often use it. I've found that store-bought vegetable stock just isn't rich enough--or, worse, it's too sweet--to be a replacement, and so I devised my own.

  • Recipe: Southwestern Corn Pudding

    Adapted from a recipe in the December, 2002, Bon Appetit, this can be made with store-bought corn bread or with cheddar-buttermilk corn bread, the recipe for which is below. The original calls for canned enchilada sauce, which can be tough to find vegetarian, so I've included a recipe for vegetarian enchilada sauce as well.

  • Recipe: Vegetarian Enchilada Sauce

    This is meant for the southwestern corn pudding, although it's great with any Mexican dish. It makes more than the corn pudding calls for; refrigerate the rest and use it whenever you need a spicy, tomato-based sauce. It does wonders for leftovers.
