Red Beans and Spaghetti
I loved the simplicity of this vegetarian entree. Season to taste for me meant olive oil, Italian seasonings, salt & pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese. Yummy! Next time, I'll try it with pesto as the seasoning!

Protein-Packed Spicy Vegan Quinoa with Edamame
I'd never used quinoa in a stir-fry and geatly appreciate this versatile recipe. Previously cooked quinoa reduced the cooking time of this great recipe. I modified it to use on-hand ingredients: tofu instead of edamame; ground red pepper instead of hot chile paste; ground ginger instead of fresh. As I was also cooking for a carnivore, I incorporated the Shrimp Quinoa recipe that I found on this site which called for asparagus, raisins, and mushrooms. Since I didn't have enough asparagus for two (& hubby doesn't care that much for it), I also added broccoli. Both frozen vegetables defrosted in the microwave while I diced the onion, pepper, and garlic. I prepared everything for two until I got to "step 4" (adding the deveined uncooked shrimp prepared while the veggies sauteed) at which time I plated my portion (including the asparagus). Hubby enjoyed his portion too!

Vegetarian 15-Bean Soup
This is great! When compared to the recipe on the bag of 15-bean soup, I love the addition of the veggies and the deletion of the meat. I had frozen kale in the freezer but no chard nor crimini on hand. I upped the kale and substituted portabello mushrooms. It was delicious.
