Potato, Bean, and Kale Soup

This Potato, Bean, and Kale Soup from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen has the green color of kale combined with potatoes. To me those are certainly two reasons this soup seems a little Irish, even if it's actually a recipe with Italian roots. And I adore the tiny little potatoes Susan uses here; so maybe if you're cooking for kids you can even work a leprechaun theme into the soup! ...more

Meatless Monday: Healthy Mexican Casserole with Roasted Corn and Peppers

There's something so satisfying about a bubbling hot casserole on the dinner table.

The casserole has corn tortillas layered with refried beans, roasted red peppers, corn, enchilada sauce and cheese. ...more

Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

When I was a kid my mom made stuffed peppers with rice, hamburger, onion, and green bell peppers, and I'd eat the rice and hamburger with a generous dollop of ketchup but wouldn't touch the pepper. Now I'm a huge fan of stuffed peppers of every kind, and I came up with this recipe for Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers with Brown Rice, Mushrooms and Feta after a Kalyn's Kitchen reader requested vegetarian stuffed peppers last October. ...more

Black Bean and Avocado Enchiladas

There's a big chocolate-eating holiday coming up, and some of you may be thinking more about Valentines Day food than you are about Meatless Monday this week. Luckily, this amazing-sounding recipe for Black Bean and Avocado Enchiladas from Budget Bytes has you covered for both. The delicious enchiladas are vegan, and Beth says avocado provides the creaminess that you might normally get from cheese in an enchilada recipe. And the from-scratch sauce used for these enchiladas has a little bit of cocoa powder added for the extra something that chocolate always provides. ...more

Brussels Sprouts Macaroni & Cheese

If you're looking for family-friendly ideas for Meatless Monday, I think homemade mac and cheese is something that's always going to be a hit, and this Brussels Sprout Mac & Cheese from Love and Olive Oil bumps up the nutrition by adding Brussels sprouts to the mix. Lindsay says it took endless experiments to come up with the perfect cheesy combination you see in the recipe, so leave out the Brussels sprouts if you they're a deal-breaker for your family, but please follow her recommendations on the cheese. ...more

Vegan Spaghetti Squash and Black Bean Mexican Bowl

This week everyone's talking about a Super-Big Bowl, but I'm thinking of a different kind of bowl, one where a variety of ingredients are served together as a flavorful one-dish meal.  I suspect this type of meal-in-a-bowl may have hit the culinary scene with Asian rice bowls. ...more
Thanks!  I'm not a vegetarian either, but I loved it!more

Skinny Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

Spaghetti squash is a winter squash that's famous for the way it strings apart into long strands when it's cooked, and it's a low-calorie and low-carb vegetable. I love spaghetti squash, but I think one key to enjoying it is to learn to appreciate the slightly crispy texture and fresh flavor of the squash itself--not try to pretend it's pasta. ...more
