  9. My favorite is a simple shredded carrot salad with lemon juice and fresh herbs . . . also delicious and protein-ful if you add some chickpeas!

  10. aw, Peanut, thanks. My favorite Vegan meal, and this sounds silly is Spinach soup. Lightly saute spinach, a bit of onion, several cloves of garlic, salt and red pepper and then blend. I could eat it forever.

  11. Banana soft serve :D It totally doesn’t taste healthy, but what could possibly be unhealthy about a banana?

  12. I am totally a sweet potato black bean chili kind of gal. Served over brown rice or polenta. Om nom nom.

    Comment by Naomi — January 30, 2011 @ 6:02 pm

  13. I think rice and peas are pretty darn healthy! Easy too – lots of chilli and garlic, what ever red or black beans I have in the cupboard and just enough coconut milk to make it creamy. Yum!

  14. My favorite is a mushroom, avocado & vegan provolone cheese sandwich.

  15. I love playing around with different Mediterranean inspired foods. So I really love a whole wheat pita packed with tabbouleh, hummus and/or baba ghanoush, and some fresh cairo salad (chopped cucumbers & tomatoes in fresh lemon juice) :D

  16. I love hummus, but I wanna try those baked onion rings in there!

    Comment by Asia al-Massari — January 30, 2011 @ 6:39 pm

  17. My all time favourite recipe has to be vegan chili. It’s healthy, but also a fantastic way to incorporate tons of veggies and grains into a single serving. It’s a great low fat & calorie meal!

  18. I love smoothies. My tried and true favorite of them all is a combination of frozen blueberries, 1/2 a frozen banana, a splash of almond milk, and some ground flax. It’s perfect post workout!!

    Comment by Tawnee — January 30, 2011 @ 8:16 pm

  19. right now (changes weekly haha) it’s brown rice, red lentils, huge handful of spinach, and some crispy broccoli all mixed up in a bowl. It’s super simple, but so good.

    Comment by Melanie — January 30, 2011 @ 8:45 pm

  20. My favorite recipe is Quinoa-lentil-sweet potato-burgers. Super easy to make. You can make a big batch and freeze the burgers for quick and healthy meals.

  21. My favorite healthy vegan meal is baked sweet potatoes fries. They should be considered a side dish, but I make a meal out of them.

    Comment by Brandi — January 30, 2011 @ 9:13 pm

  22. My favorite recipe is for vegan nut-butter, banana, oatmeal pancakes. Wow. I just made myself want them…I think I’ll make them for dinner!

    Comment by Robyn — January 30, 2011 @ 10:12 pm

  23. My favorite recipe is quinoa, black bean and corn salad with whatever veggies I have in the fridge!

    Comment by J Hall — January 31, 2011 @ 12:05 am

  24. So want that book!
    I have too many favourites to choose. Something I had recently and loved was the Vegan Table recipe for African Sweet Potato Peanut Stew. Served with steamed kale and quinoa it makes a delicious, healthy vegan meal :)

  25. Well it’s not exactly ‘healthy’, but I’m a big fan of Joy the Baker’s vegan pumpkin loaf:

    But if it has to be something savoury… there’s a fantastic recipe on 101 Cookbooks for a chanterelle, celeriac and potato gratin with cashew cream. SO good!

  26. My favorite vegan recipe is 3 bean chili with tempeh.

    Comment by Marie — January 31, 2011 @ 4:19 am

  29. I love me a successful vegan pancake and fruit syrup/reduction recipe!

    Comment by Natalie — January 31, 2011 @ 9:19 am

  30. my favourite healthy recipe is somewhere along the lines of steamed kale, just tender, served with a miso dressing and roasted sweet potatoes wedges. maybe with a side of red quinoa.

  31. My favorite light meal is vegan sushi. It’s filling, and nutritious, yet still light.

    Comment by Chris — January 31, 2011 @ 9:55 pm

  32. My favorite vegan recipe is a dish of my own devising (inspired by the Ol’ Quinoa Kurt salad offered by the Electric Cheetah, a local restaurant). I toss together some quinoa, corn, black beans, tomatoes, and scallions, and put together chipotle-avocado dressing. Yum!

    Comment by Amy — February 1, 2011 @ 3:35 am

  33. Homemade veggie burgers with spicy baked fries! Mmm.

    Comment by Heather — February 1, 2011 @ 11:52 pm

  34. My favorite is definitely oven-baked lentil and brown rice casserole with onions and veggie broth – so easy, so filling, so good for you!

    Comment by Meredith — February 3, 2011 @ 5:20 am

  35. I would say squash soup! It is usually so hearty and doesn’t need any type of vegan “fat” to make it thick and delicious!
