Vegan Recipe: Potato Artichoke Casserole

Vegan Recipe: Potato Artichoke Casserole

This recipe may also be made with different kinds of potatoes — fingerling potatoes are especially good. Green pepper may be substituted for the red pepper, if desired. I have also tried this with canned artichoke hearts and sliced black olives, but the results were not as tasty as with the frozen hearts and the kalamata olives, so I would […]

I serve this in 8-inch “pasta” bowls, so there is plenty of room for all of the ingredients, making it a no-cook, one-dish meal. […]

Vegan Recipe: Corn and Black Bean Cakes

My mom made a version of these savory pancakes for dinner when I was a kid. My updated version is healthier, but no less delicious—and now I enjoy them for breakfast, too! For best results, don’t try to flip the pancakes until they are thoroughly crisped on the underside; only then will they release from the pan easily. From The […]

I have made many attempts at a baked falafel and even falafel burgers, but had not hit on the “one” that packed a full-of-flavor punch like a fried falafel ball does—until this. Veggie burgers can be served immediately or refrigerated for up to a week. Simply reheat them in a pan, a toaster or a microwave before serving. Preparation Time: […]
