Great recipe for dinner guests.
This recipe comes from my friend, Jim Morris Hicks, author of "Healthy Eating, Healthy World". Check out his site: www.4leafprogram.com or www.hpjmh.com.
Jim is making a significant difference in bringing together influential people who have the means of awakening the public to the sustainability crisis impacting our species and planet. In 2014 James Cameron, film director, now a friend of Jim's, is making a film on this issue.
Chef AJ and Juliana Hever have combined to create an entertaining and recipe packed website:www.plantbaseddietitian.com (the Chef and the Dietitian). I love lentils so I can never have enough lentil loaf recipes. Variety is the spice of life!!
Found this recipe at Whole Foods. With protein packed quinoa, protein and filber rich lentils and sweet potatoes, you know you're eating a completely healthy meal - protein, fiber, antioxidants!
This is a hearty, tasty, and healthy Food for Life recipe. Did you know that one artichoke has 4 grams of protein and 10.3 grams of fiber? The ingredients in this recipe make for a healthy dinner - filled with protein, fiber, and a ton of antioxidants!
When I first embraced a plant based lifestyle in '06, Isa Chandra Moskowitz's cookbooks were some of the first I purchased. Her wonderful Brooklyn sense of humor rings through each page. Check her out online to see her in action.
This recipe has been adapted from her wonderful book, "Vegan Brunch". Breakfasts are far from boring; rather so much healthier, colorful, and tastier than the greasy artery clogging Standard American Diet (SAD). SAD breakfasts are ladled with saturated fat and grease.
This recipe is from Dreena Burton's wonderful cookbook, "Let Them Eat Vegan". Her first book, "Vive Le Vegan" is wonderful with many healthy, delicious recipes. Check her out.
Now to the recipe - check out these healthy ingredients. Great taste. Love this faux meatloaf!
You have your bean, veggie and wonderful seasonings. What more do you need? And, remember, that for breast cancer survivors, lentils are the legumes shown to offer the best protection against disease recurrence.
Looked in the frig; there were the collards. Checked out the pantry; there sat the cannellini's. Walla, here is dinner!
This recipe has been adapted from a healthy and helpful book authored by John and Jan Belleme entitled, "Japenese Foods that Heal". In addition to some healthy, healing recipes, each chapter details the history of the Japense food highlighted, and how best to prepare. Each recipe I've prepared has been wonderful! You can almost see your cells smiling when you fill your body with the foods known to heal!
One of our Green Noshers prepared this recipe from Mark Bittman's book, "Vegan Before 6". They are scrumptious! I'm always looking for different ways to prepare 'burgers'! I adapted this slightly to cut down on salt and omit the original requested olive oil.
If you're looking for a quick, easy, healthy, and tasty dinner - "a 10 minute put-together" - this is for you. Thanks to Alvan, one of our Cape Green Noshers, for sharing this delicious entree. This is especially nice for folks who are transitioning to a plant based lifestyle!
This is a fabulous recipe from "You Won't Believe It's Vegan" by Lacey Sher and Gail Doherty. Check out their book. Great plant based recipes. (This recipe is one of my very favorites!!)
From a Food for Life class participant........at our last class pot luck. This is scrumptious!
This is another Food for Life recipe! Kale ups the dish's cancer fighting properties, and offers a great source of absorbable calcium.
This is a Salad Master recipe that we use in class. Folks rave over this one.
This delicious recipe was shared by Bob and Susan during our November 2012 Food for Life Kickstart series. Bob and Susan are a delightful couple who share the joys of nutritious, plant based foods.

Let's be honest.....tempeh in its neatly compacted packaging looks the least bit appetizing. The first time I eyed it back in 2006, I wondered if this 'thing' could be transformed into something tasty and delicous. I knew its nutrition, but the flavor, well, I wondered! After feeling the fear and trying it anyway, I can loudly and happily declare, "I love tempeh!" This is a fabulous recipe that I adapted from "You Won't Believe It's Vegan!" by Lacey Sher and Gail Doherty.
This comes from PCRM's "Cancer Survivor's Guide". The zucchini adds folate and vitamins A and C. You can add lima beans or any veggie of choice.
This was one of the first recipes I fell in love with when I morphed to a total plant based lifestyle back in '06. So good and heart. Tastes like my mother's beef stew without the beef!
I found this recipe online years ago. The original recipe is tainted with ground pork and turkey. Other than those 2 toxins, the rest of the ingredients are hearty, healthy and tasty. With a little substitution, this is a winning chili. Hope you enjoy!
I've tried many Falafel recipes. Each is far better than the boxed mix which I have alway found to be very dry. The following is one of my favorites. Send me yours if you have one!
Pulled pork! Never!! Try this great combination for pulled seitan. With this you leave out the cholesterol and saturated fat and still get plenty of protein.
Healthy, Plant Based Paella!
Mushrooms have researched cancer fighting properties. Anyone who is living with cancer might consider snacking on a few mushrooms daily. Even the plain, unadorned white button mushrooms are healthy, even though thier portabellos are favored for their taste.
This is hearty, healthy, easy to prepare one-dish meal. Fiber, protein and greens; what more do you need??
This recipe comes from Jennifer Reilly, RD, blog write par excellence, and cookbook author, "The Skinny Dish", written for Trader Joe's. This recipe is full of cancer-fighting ingredients - fiber, beans and anti-oxidants.
About 12 years ago I found this recipe, my very first black bean semi-burger. Very tasty and healthy.
There are oodles of veggie burger recipes. Try a variety till you find the one that's mouth-watering and tasty to your liking!
From our October 'Green Nosh'. Thanks, Larry!
My daughter made this recipe a few weeks ago when I was visiting. It's from the "Moosewood Restaurant" cookbook. I made some adjustments to veganize it. It's so tasty. With a hearty green side salad and perhaps a slice of grain bread, you have a complete, satisfying dinner that's not only tasty but healthy!

This is a Food for Life recipe!
Recipe adapted from Kathy Hester's wonderful cookbook, "The Vegan Slow Cooker".
Making your own goes a long way. Far more economical than store bought! Easy, too!

Compliments of my Sicilian Grandmother!
Porcupine balls were a family favorite when my children were very young.

You can make this chunky bean chili a few hours ahead, but it will thicken as it stands.
Zippy, spicy, warming and filled with fabulous fiber. Toot, toot!
Black beans have the highest antioxidant content of all legumes.
I've tried quite a few 'faux' meatball recipes because I love my meatballs and sauce. This recipe is made with seitan, otherwise known as 'wheat meat'.
Basil is the queen of all herbs.
