Ginger Roasted Tempeh w/ Vegetables

This is a lovely, meaty dish that can be modified with vegetables that you have around.
 
If aiming for gluten-free, make sure that the tempeh does not have barley.

Venezuelan Black Beans and Rice

Mixing rice and beans together makes a nice pilaf dish.  
Make lots, as this is a great filling for wraps made for tomorrow's lunch!
Note that there are no health needs to eat rice and beans together, as we get all the amino acids needed from the protein in whole plant foods when consumed throughout the day and week.

Barley has a chewy texture, like pasta.

Ethiopian Red Lentils

 
This dish exemplifies how the plant-based diet can expand the standard Western palette with exotic ethnic tastes! 
 
 
Lovely pinkish red lentils don’t hold their shape when cooked and become thick and saucy, like a thick soup or stew. 
 
 
 

Cuban Black Beans, (and basic bean-cooking instructions)

A very basic bean recipe -try it with any other variety.  This is how you cook dried beans.  
 
Soaking and then draining beans reduces the undigestible sugars (oligosaccharides) that may lead to gas buildup in our lower intestines, potentially resulting in flatulence. Honestly, this lessens the more we have beans in our daily diet.  If beans are new to your diet, add them into your daily routine incrementally.
 

Chickpea Curry

Here's a basic curry recipe with lots of room for variation.
 
 

Basket of Jewels

 
Put a bunch of vegetables in a steamer, add a sauce and Voilà - Dinner!
