#15. Raw Taco Salad for Two

Tisha writes, “I just made this entire meal for my family of 6, and everyone loved it – even my kids! The walnut taco filling was fantastic and had a terrific punch of flavor that we have all loved about the veggie ground we used to use. I plan to use this walnut ground for other dishes too – maybe even in a pasta sauce!”

14. Black Bean, Sweet Potato, and Red Quinoa Soup

Julie writes, “I made this last night and everyone was happy. The soup is flavorful enough, with nothing too overpowering (always a concern when using cumin) so that even my 3 year old gobbled all hers right up. The most fun part (for kids…and for grownups too truth be told) was that we each got to decorate our own bowl with the fixins!”

12. Chickpea Salad Wraps

Colleen writes, “I’ve been making this recipe since you posted it, and it is great! We make garbanzos/chickpeas in the pressure cooker all the time, so we have them on hand for different recipes. Besides wraps, we’ve had this on salads, and just plain. A keeper!”

7. Layered Salad with Oil-free Orange Ginger Dressing

HD writes, “Made this for lunch this week (packed the salad in five containers and the dressing in a sixth) and really liked it! It’s a super-easy idea for work lunches and it kept me full from 12:00 all the way to 5:00, through my hour-long strength training class and then right up to 7:00 or so when I had a chance to have dinner!”

6. Spicy BBQ Chickpea Burgers and Baked Crispy Fries

Renee writes, “I made these last night…SO GOOD! Whenever I make something from your blog, my husband always asks if the recipe comes “husband approved” (like the crispy tofu!). Whether or not these were approved by your husband, these were approved by mine!”

4. Glazed Lentil Walnut Loaf revisited

Natalie writes, “Just wanted to let you know I made this last night. I had made the lentils the night before so I had to chop and put together. I changed the glaze a bit – I made it with ketchup, brown sugar, water and dry mustard. It was good last night, but absolutely phenomenal for lunch today (as I type this). I think next time I’ll make it on the weekend when I have more time so I can just heat it up one night for dinner. Easy and delicious.

PS – I was really surprised how similar to a meatloaf this is. My boyfriend commented that you almost get the same texture as with ground beef! But so much better for you!”
