Pocket Pie

Sweet Karoline sent this picture in: "I made a white bean, mushroom, spinach, and broccoli pocket pie. Not only was it a lot of fun to make, it helped me use up a ton of random containers of veggies and beans that I always have hanging out in my fridge!"

A Delicious Sandwich

From Heather in Virginia: "Ezekiel sprout bread, hummus, feta cheese, avocado and tomato. Better than any sandwich with meat on it!"

My favorite vegan substitute for feta cheese is salty kalamata olives.

Okra and Lima Bean Masala

Okra and Lima Bean Masala is one of my favorite dishes from SusanV's FatFree Vegan Kitchen. I've made this several times for a fast, healthy supper -- it's so easy using frozen chopped okra and canned tomatoes. Susan tells me, "I think you may be the first person to mention that they've tried the lima bean masala! I'm so glad you like it. I'm a big fan of lima beans and like to put them to non-traditional uses."

Thanks for a wonderful blog, SusanV!

Kabocha-ushi Sushi

Maggie at Say Yes to Salad (loooove it!) sent in this beautiful entry:

"I call this 'Kabocha-ushi Sushi' and it's basically a vegan take on sushi. It's almost raw (the kabocha is shredded and then sauteed - the only cooked part; oh, and vegan bacon bits). Ingredients are romaine lettuce, jicama 'rice', daikon sprouts, kabocha (love!), bacon bits, and then you dip it in soy sauce + wasabi."

Follow the link for the recipe!
