African-Style Beet Greens

While mushed or creamed greens will never win prizes for appearance they’re comfort food with a nutritional punch.

Jerk Tofu and Veggies + Rice and Beans

There’s no way to kick off the grilling season like some smoky, spicy, jerk sauce smothered all over a thick slab of tofu and a side of juicy vegetables.

Savory Kale Cake

An unusual and veggielicious side dish to serve with a soup for lunch or as a centerpiece at brunch.

Spring Salad with Basilicious Dressing

This vibrant blend of herbs that smothers a variety of vegetables and grains along with the occasional sweetness of a plump raisin: it’s magic for the mouth. Just try it and see.

Butternut Tuile

Half-way between a cracker and kugel, the four-year-old in residence here declares that ”it’s good Mom. It doesn’t taste healthy;” which is praise coming from a child. Bonus – it actually is good for you even though the squash provides sweetness in every bite.

Spicy Tomato Soup

A thick and unctuous tomato soup, fragrant with Indian spices and naturally sweetened with lots of squash and a wee bit of beets.

Meatless Loaf with Sweet & Sour Sauce

This is a perfectly spiced millet and cowpea (or lentil) loaf that can shine alone – or that you can jazz up with a generous helping of sweet and sour sauce.
