Mexican Bean and Squash Soup
Great tasting vegetarian soup - I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I had a surplus of squash from my garden so this recipe added to menu variety/possibilities. I love the sweet and nutty flavor of butter squash and the spice was a nice contrast in this dish. I used fresh soaked beans and skipped the sour cream. I didn't have lime, but I'm sure it would have been more amazing.

Vegetable Masala
Omitted the green beans and used garbanzo beans. I like more sauce so I added sm can of tomato paste with water & veg broth. Also, I added more garam masala. Very tasty!

Quick Eggplant Parmesan
Simple short recipe! I used Panko crumbs. To make it a 1-course meal, I made my own sauce with tomato paste, garlic, yellow squash, onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, basil & oregano and I added cheddar cheese to the other cheese. I also peeled & soaked the EP for 30 min in salt water, drained & dried well. Fried in light olive oil before baking. Served with french bread.
