Mashed potatoes and gravy!

I have always had this gut feeling that vegetables and fresh fruits were much better for our bodies, but lacked the knowledge that I needed to feed myself and all my children the best of what Gods Word of wisdom is all about. Of-course I was mostly shy and kept to myself,hence, the main reason for not being armed with better nutritional habits. through the years I have taken on the journey to better health through proper nutritional intake. I hope to be a winner of your cookbook to put into practice with the guidance that you so lovingly put together your book.

My favorite vegan (holiday) side dish is orzo and wild rice salad. The dressing has a little honey, so it is a bit sweet along with savory, and soooo delish!!!

Brussels Sprouts . . . my mom used to steam them and then top with butter and breadcrumbs and my siblings and I would fight over them. Now I toss them in olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar and roast in the oven.

I still like the green bean casserole. Is there a vegan version>
Valeri Caskey December 22, 2011 @07:24 am
I am sure this is so lame, because it is so traditional, but I just love sweet potatoe casserole complete with marshmallows and all - veganized of course! P.S. Love your show too - thanks!

Zucchini Linquine is a favorite side dish/salad, and the colors are so festive for the holiday season. Plus, this dish does not tie up my oven or other appliances. We never have leftovers.

My favorite is "Kallaloo" It's a spicy stew of squash and greens served over cornmeal. This recipe came from the Island of ST.John
Narda Jones December 15, 2011 @10:25 pm
This is one of our favorites...potato and tofu salad. In a bowl, you mix cut squares of boiled potatoes with fried tofu squares (optional: you can drizzle tofu with soy sauce for added flavor), then you add boiled mixed veggies and fried sweet plaintains cut into little pieces and stir everything together. Last step is to add some vegannaise and mix all the ingredients together and enjoy! It's great stuff!

I am very new to all of this cooking. I have only seen 2 episodes of the show but love it! I was thinking of trying the cauliflower mashed potatoes. But will continue to keep looking at the recipes.
Diane Pettinga December 15, 2011 @02:01 pm

This Thanksgiving I needed an easy side dish that didn't occupy the stovetop or oven - I made candied sweet potatoes (NOT par boiled) in my slow cooker with OJ, brown sugar, vegan "butter", cinnamon and maple syrup! They were a HIT!
