Adding a touch of spice to Basmati rice adds a little something extra to Indian dishes. Most restaurants and indeed most Indian chefs I know serve white rice with their meals. I prefer the health benefits of whole grains, so I go for brown or red rice every time....

One of the meals I’ve missed in the six-plus years since adopting a whole foods plant-based lifestyle is a Chinese dish called Spicy Orange Beef. I have come spectacularly close to recreating it with this recipe featuring soy curls.
Whether or not you are a fan of clam chowder, if you love decadently creamy potatoes and are craving comfort food, this is a dish you will love. It doesn’t have the fishy taste of clams, but the shitake mushrooms provide the color and chewiness of clams and enhance the character of this dish as a hearty clam chowder. I have fooled people from New England with this wonderful stew. This is a perfect transition dish if you miss seafood.
This Barbecue Jackfruit recipe will have your most plant-resistant carnivorous friends amazed they are not actually eating barbecue pulled pork! Simple to make, this recipe comes together in less than twenty minutes.
A good barbecue sauce makes becoming plant-based an easier endeavor. You can prepare a wide variety of dishes with this sauce that make you forget you aren’t eating meat. Added to veggie burger ingredients, it gives them a sweet and savory flavor with a hint of heat.
For a burger bun, you want bread that is soft and gives when you bite into it. Harder bread squeezes the ingredients of your sandwich out the sides, creating a big, albeit often delicious, mess. This is an excellent bun for veggie burgers, BBQ sandwiches, and more!
This sauce is delicious served over Penne Pasta with Broccoli, Ravioli Stuffed Pasta Shells, Spaghetti, or any other pasta dish. This is also a delightful dipping sauce for Crostini.
This sweet and spicy dish comes together quickly. Put your rice on to steam thirty minutes before you start preparing your Szechuan Eggplant dish and you’ll have dinner ready in no time.
These pitas are 100% whole grain, hearty, and delicious. They also freeze very well, so make a bunch so you’ll have them on hand. To defrost, just stick them in your microwave on high for 30 seconds to one minute.
Who can say no to savory baked falafel? Not me, that’s for sure. You can serve them as the main attraction of a meal, as part of a salad, or as the filling for a falafel pita sandwich, which is my favorite use for them.
There is no good reason to suffer through chewing tough store-bought pita bread when making it yourself is this good and this easy. Try this recipe and see what you’ve been missing!
I thought I’d never have delicious yogurt and fruit smoothies once I gave up animal protein. I just don’t like the store bought stuff. Now yogurt is back on my table! Make smoothies, sauces, and add it to stews; it does anything dairy yogurt does without harming our health, environment and our animal friends. Try it; it will be the easiest dish you’ll ever make!
Who needs beef when a stew made from fresh vegetables can be this rich and flavorful? With generous chunks of potatoes, carrots, and portobello mushrooms, this decadent comfort food promises to sustain you through the chilliest of winter nights.
This recipe tastes like real eggs (really!) and comes together quickly, in a matter of minutes. By the time your toaster pops out your toast, this dish is done.
Well, I’ve finally done it! After three years of experimentation, I’ve come up with a foolproof Ethiopian injera recipe that is quick and easy. If you are craving Ethiopian food and have some sourdough starter on hand, this is a bread you can create from start to finish in as little as 20 minutes.

This is a deliciously flavorful way to eat potatoes. I first tried this dish at a fantastic Indian/Sri Lankan restaurant called, Dosa Garden, in Staten Island, NY. I was so smitten by the flavors, I hounded the owner/chef to share the recipe with me. He gave me the general ingredients and this is the version I came up with. I think it comes pretty darned close.
Tahini sauce is delicious over just about any grain dish. It will keep three days in your refrigerator and reheats well. You can make it to the consistency you desire.
Quinoa is a delicious gluten-free substitute for the wheat intolerant. It is also a nice substitute for rice. It cooks quickly by comparison and has a slightly crunchy texture.
This recipe has a number of steps but it is really quite simple to make. If you don’t care for spicy food, simply leave out the hot pepper.
