Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos
I had extra fillings left over. I'm glad I cooked some beans this week for several different recipes (yeah me for planning ahead). At the farmer's market I bought sweet potatoes but wasn't sure what I would do with them. I cubed and froze them. So this morning I cooked the sweet potatoes (used some water & used that water residue in the recipe for added vitamins. I went light on the cayanne. This is so mild I could feed it to my toddler. BUT has enough flavor that I"m very happy to recommend this recipe to others. *as the beans were finishing up, I did squeeze half a lime on them as beans*. Other than that the only other change was I added broth and sweet potatoe water instead of plain water. Since I am freezing these I took someone's advice and added cheese on the inside and did not bake these. Wrapped in foil for baking in the future. Cooking the beans yourself from dried and this is not an expensive meal at all and yielded more than 12 burritos.

Lentil Soup
My family liked it. I give the recipe as is 3 stars as it was written, but 4 stars when we doubled the spices and added veggie broth instead of water. My kids suggested adding potatoes for something to really bite into. We served this with rice on the side (I ate this more like a stew while hubby enjoyed it as a soup), baked marinated tofu slices (Terry Hope Romero recipe from Vegan Eat World), vegan banana bread for dessert (Post Punk Kitchen) and sweet tea/chai tea. We'll make this again but not often. It makes a lot, plenty to share with neighbors/friends!

Vegetarian Sloppy Joes
I had just bought my vegetarian worshtishire sauce and was surfing for a recipe to try it on... and voila'. This recipe whips up quickly. It's been over 14 years since I had a sloppy joe, but this certainly reminded me of what I used to enjoy. Small amount of clean up involved- the flavors are good with sweet initial flavor and a spicy aftertaste. I agree with another reviewer, my 8 year old thought it was too spicy, though I thought it was perfect. (I'm a mild salsa type gal). Very good flavor, I don't think it could pass as the real deal but certainly will pass this on to EVERY vegetarian/vegan I know (I think vegan use br. sugar in lieu of honey). I used MorningStar for my tempeh/meat substitute.
