roasted cauliflower | lemon cream with blackberries | polenta pizza | white bean and vegetable stew | tofu bay cakes | roasted cabbage

this week's dinners were full of local flavors and hearty warm dishes. they are few 'oldy favorites' that you might recognize, but several newbies as well. and don't forget, if it wasn't delicious and totally hubby approved, it doesn't make the list!

monday: potato quesadillas with roasted cauliflower
tuesday: white bean and vegetable stew
wednesday: tofu bay cakes (image via vegan dad) served with seasonal veggies and lemon cream with blackberries
thursday: potato cakes with roasted cabbage served with my new favorite carrot salad
friday: polenta pizza served with a seasonal salad

what was on your plate this week? any favorite recipes you’d like to share?

  • Hi Bonnie,
    I just wanted to pop in and tell you that the post you wrote last week about your experiences after a year of vegan lifestyle really inspired me and this week I decided to experiment with switching to a plants-based, whole-foods diet. I am going to try it out for awhile and see what happens, but so far, I feel really great and I don’t even miss the dairy or meat. I made the almond fettachini alfredo recipe you linked too (it was delicious) and am going to try the Thai Curry one tonight. So just wanted to let you know and thank you for sharing your experience and by doing so, inspiring me to try it out!

    • eliza, thank you so much for sharing!! i’m so excited to have inspired you and hope that you will continue to feel great. let me know how it goes, and if you have any questions! oxox

  • Thank you or posting all these dinner recipes! I will be making next week’s meal plan soon and I am grateful for new recipes to try:)

  • thanks for linking to the recipes. I haven’t found a book available locally and am ordering the ones you referenced, so in the meantime these look fabulous and attainable too!

  • My resolution this year is to cook more, and all of these photos/recipes you post are really inspiring. My mom is coming for the month of February and while not a vegetarian, she always says she could easily give up meat because she loves veggies so much. I can’t wait to try out some of your recipes on her!

  • so happy to hear you all are enjoying the dinner ideas posts! i love writing them, and love to browse through them when i’m ‘stuck’. happy cooking! xox
