Thanks for all the recipes, YERVANT. Are you a chef? Or just love to cook like my DH and I do.

My vegan marinara sauce.

My vegan chili.

My tofu stir fry: (When I want Mongolian style but want to stay at home)

Hope these help.

I love this receipe.

2-3 chinese long eggplants (washed) - prick it a few places with fork or knife
2 cloves garlic (cut in halves) - push it thro

wrap separately in aluminium foil and roast in the oven at 300 deg for 20-30mins. Make sure to turn it half way through.

Once removed let it cool. peel the skin . Mash the rest. add 1tsp olive oil, salt to taste. (1 tblsp finely chopped onion and 1/2 tsp parsely)

hope you enjoy it too.

Me too! Me too! I would love any recipes with eggplant, and any info as far as when it's in season, if it's really necessary to "press" it before cooking, or salt it first, or whatever. I'm ignorant, but I long to bee informed! Help with eggplant!

Potato Leek Soup

1 Tbsp olive oil
4 leeks, cleaned and sliced
1/2 an onion, diced small
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Tbsp flour*
6 - 8 potatoes (depends on size) chopped in various sizes
4-6 cups broth, water with boullion cubes (whatever)
1/4 cup white wine
1 Tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
1 tsp thyme, dried
1 tsp dill, dried
1/2 tsp rosemary, dried
salt and pepper

Heat the oil and add the leeks and onion and let it sweat a bit. Add the garlic and the flour and stir it around a while, but don't let the garlic burn. Add the potatoes and stock, white wine and seasonings and simmer until the potatoes are done.

Of course, you can use fresh herbs instead. I rarely have fresh dill in the winter though.

*The flour is the key to this recipe. It's the same kind of trick you do with onion soup and it gives it a really nice mouthfeel. I can't believe I said mouthfeel, but I'll blame it on being a wine drinker. Wine drinkers use weird words. I'm proof.

Most of the vegetarian recipes on my blog can be easily made vegan by subbing out Veggie broth for Chicken broth, however, this recipe already is.

Vegan Soft Tacos

1 tbsp olive oil

1 zucchini, grated

1 large carrot, grated

1 onion, finely sliced

1 green bell pepper, seeded and finely diced

1 red bell pepper seeded and finely diced

1 envelope taco seasoning mix

1 can vegetarian refried beans (16 oz)

1 large tomato diced

4 whole wheat tortillas

In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, about 2-3 minutes or until softened. Add zucchini, peppers, carrot, and taco seasonings. Stir until seasonings are uniformly blended, then cover and cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Heat refried beans over low heat, stir until hot. Serve with 1/4 tomato, 1/2 cup refried beans, and 1/4 taco mixture on one whole wheat tortilla (I use small ones). Makes 4 servings.

Vospov Kufte
Lentil Bulgur Patties

1 ¼ cups red lentils, picked over and rinsed
3 cups water
2 tsp salt
1 cup bulgur, fine
¾ cup olive oil
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
1 tsp Aleppo pepper

¼ cup chopped parsley
¼ cup finely chopped red and green pepper
¼ cup finely chopped scallions or onions

Place lentils in a pot, add water, and bring to the boil. Simmer 5 minutes, removing thick foam that rises to the surface.

Add salt and continue simmering, 40 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally. When mixture has cooked to a thick, yellow mass and water is absorbed, remove from heat.

Measure bulgur into a deep bowl and spoon cooked lentils over it, mixing to blend. Set bowl aside, covered, for 10 minutes.

Heat olive oil in a small skillet and add onions, sautéing them just until they begin to brown. Add pepper, stir, then add skillet contents to bowl and knead or mix thoroughly. Taste to adjust seasoning.

Moisten hands and shape mixture into oblong patties: pinch off a piece, squeeze it gently in your clenched fist and release it. Arrange patties on a serving platter. Combine garnish ingredients and sprinkle over patties.

About 6 servings

Note: To substitute for Aleppo pepper, one can use paprika with a dash of cayenne.
