Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
to make this a 5 star recipe you need to cook rice in vegetable broth instead of water. also, it was very dry so i doubled the rice and tripled the other ingredients. i also added FIELD ROAST vegan italian sausage. i cut it into small pieces and browned it then added it to the finished product. it got rave reviews at a recent vegan pot luck. made it again for a vegan potluck. it got rave reviews. here is my twist. 3 onions, chopped 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 - 28 ounce cans diced tomatoes 3 - 15 ounce cans (or equivalent) black beans (drained & rinsed) 2 teaspoons dried oregano 2 teaspoons garlic powder 2 C rice (white, brown, basmati, whatever your preference is!) 32 ounce vegetable broth OPTIONAL - 2 packages FIELD ROAST (my preference) Italian flavored veggie sausage 1. Cook rice in a large pot according to directions except substitute vegetable broth for water. 2. While the rice is cooking, In another pan, saute the onions in oil until translucent. Add tomatoes, beans, oregano and garlic powder. Bring to boil then lower to a simmer until rice is cooked. Once rice is cooked, add tomato-bean mixture to rice. 3. OPTIONAL - Slice sausages into 1/4 inch rounds and brown in a little olive oil or lay them out on a cookie sheet, spray with olive oil and quick broil until lightly browned and add to mixture. This recipe will make enough to fill a 2 x 10 x 14 tray.

Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
I used vegetable broth and it came out delicious! Because kale is tough make sure you strip it from the stem. Also, I took my good scissors to it after it was cooked. I suggest doing this before cooking.

Wilted Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009

Cranberry Relish II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
i was a little confused about what part of the peel to use. at first it was too bitter from the skin but i added no skin to the next batch along with finely chopped walnuts and that did the trick. i would make it again with a little tweaking of the recipe.
