Tofu and Mushroom Scramble   

If the curry powder called for in this recipe is not your spice, change it out for some fresh basil, or Mexican style with some oregano and cheese. Feel free to experiment with what you have on hand.

Vegan Taco Soup  

Taco soup is a favorite any time of year. This recipe is loaded with fresh ingredients for a satisfying meal or a soup and avocado/tomato sandwich combo.

Roasted Beet and Feta Salad

This is a beautiful salad to bring to a potluck for a July 4th get-together. The recipe calls for freshly roasted beets, which are always best, but you could cheat and use beets from a can. If you are taking this salad to a party, assemble when you get there so the colors stay fresh and crisp
