One Bowl Wonders: vegan

Lime In The Coconut Chickpea Stew

By Gina Caputo

Lime In The Coconut Chickpea Stew
One day during quarantine I got a wild hair to use mostly pantry items to make a stew but I still wanted it to be high in protein. So I ended up making a chickpea on chickpea stew with a coveted can of coconut milk! This is easy, delicious and can be served on its own, over rice or you can dip pita or naan in it. AND if you listen to Harry Nilsson's song Coconut while you make it, it's guaranteed to be infused with that special spice called FUN.

FORZA! Italia Lentils

FORZA! Italia Lentils
In solidarity with my Italian brothers and sisters, I give you FORZA! Well, the dish gives you forza anyway. This lentils and pasta dish is inspired by a Roman classic. The greens were my idea. Eat it in good health, in bad health or simply to everyone's health!!

Devlishly Delicious

Devlishly Delicious
This pot o' goodness is inspired by a dish I saw called Lentils Diavolo, which is Italian for devil and refers, in food, to a spicy sauce. I kicked it up with extra veggies and a different source of fire. It's vegan, hearty, easy and can be served alone or on top of couscous (pictured here is Israeli couscous), small pasta noods, rice, farro, polenta, or potatoes.

Bean Feeling Spicy Lately

Bean Feeling Spicy Lately
This spicy stick-to-your-ribs stew is super versatile. It can be made anything from vegan to omnivore and you have the power to adjust the spicy level to suit your tastes! This protein-rich stew is satisfying on its own for anyone eating low-carb but fresh bread makes a perfect partner too. Or serve it over rice or polenta! No matter what, don't forget the lemon juice at the end!

Pasta e Fagioli

By Gina Caputo

Pasta e Fagioli

In all my years of making pasta, I've never made a proper Pasta e Fagioli (pasta and beans) because canned cannellini beans are already mushy so adding them to a soup only works when you're going for creamy and not toothsome beans. So I finally bought some proper dried beans and this may be one of the most delicious things I've ever made! WORTH IT.

Down To Earth

By Gina Caputo

Down To Earth
This earthy bowl works wonders for supporting you feeling grounded and stable amidst the winds of change, which makes it perfect for Fall. Lentils are an excellent source of vegetarian protein and have a great texture in soups and stews when you cook them right! The humble potatoes take the earthiness to an all new level - its like a hug in a bowl. This One Bowl Wonder can be made with sausage of various kinds, including tofu-based sausage or go without it!

Feel The Beet

By Gina Caputo

Feel The Beet
Root veggies are to Fall as fruits are to Summer so to kick off Fall, I always bring out the beets! Beets are high in important vitamins and minerals, are thought to support athletic performance, are high in fiber and may support brain health! If you aren't sure if you like them, this could be a great dish to try them again. The apple brings a brightness to the earthy beets and the saltiness of the feta/vegan feta is a partner. Git some.
