Vegetarian Refried Beans
tasty, simple, healthy, and inexpensive. just what i'm looking for in a recipe. i don't have a food processor, so i used a potato masher - it worked pretty well, yeilding a very thick mixture. i served this in some corn tortillas (thus yielding a complete protein in a vegetarian meal). a very nice variation on the pinto bean, which i eat a lot of as a poor grad student!

Barley Primavera
I too played with the recipe a bit, but the basic idea is a great one: take a healthy, inexpensive whole grain that on its own isn't the most flavorful thing out there, and add a bunch of great flavor in the form of healthy veggies. I used onion, garlic, mushrooms, carrots, and canned tomatoes for the veggie mix. I also used only about 2.5 cups liquid to make the barley. For spice I used salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, and some smoked paprika for both flavor and a very nice deep red color. I'll definately add this to my repetoire of whole grain entrees. Thanks!

Creole Black-Eyed Peas and Rice
tasty, easy, healthy - this is what I love in a recipe. I too added a bit of minced garlic to the beef, onions, and pepper during browning. just a nice overall mix of flavors and textures. for one helping i squirted some lime juice over my bowl (I don't know why) and I thought that tasted pretty good too.
