Black Bean and Couscous Salad
I made this last night to compliment the Spicy Garlic Lime chicken from this site, as another reviewer suggested. All I can say is !! Every bite was mmm-mmm good. I left out the cilantro and added toasted pine nuts, sliced kalamata olives, and crumbled feta. I didn't like the olive oil-y flavor of the dressing so I kept adding a little more vinegar (balsamic and red wine) until it went away. Then I put in a teaspoon or so of dijon mustard to fill it out. Perfection! I will be making this again (and again). Yum!

Spicy Vegan Potato Curry
I made this one evening and took most of it to share at work the next day, mainly because there was no way I could eat it all. Every week afterwards one of my coworkers would ask when I was going to make it again, he liked it so much. For the recipe I left out the garam masala and used black beans instead of chickpeas. I used 4 cans of new potatoes quartered. I couldn't find curry powder so I used a curry paste, and light coconut milk. It was pretty spicy but the flavors were SO very good. The second time I made it without following the recipe to the tee, and after tasting it I decided to put in about a tablespoon of dijon mustard to complete the layers of flavor. Try it! I eat this over brown rice or bulgur wheat with some ranch dressing (weird, I know) and it is heaven.

Vegetarian Tortilla Stew
I actually started out following the recipe for this one, but of course strayed. I used everything except the chicken substitute, cilantro (ew), and corn tortillas. THEN added two cans of potatoes, diced; a can of black beans; a large can of diced green chiles; a very healthy sprinkle of nutritional yeast; and half a can of refried beans to thicken, a whole can would have been better. I wanted to make just a small amount, but that never happens. I was eating this for a week. Thankfully it was good, especially over tortilla chips with cheese and sour cream.
