Helping Friends Go Vegan – A Correspondence

Cauliflower Tacos for TACO TUESDAY!!!

Word arahn’ tahn is spreading to friends everywhere. We have received numerous messages from friends all over the country who are looking to add plant-based recipes to their diet. Here is a recent email Beth received. As always you can check out my story here and a recent article on about my journey.



I am so glad to hear from you.  I hope you and your family are doing well.  Yes, I have lots of recipes.  I have a few sites with recipes to check out and I will include links to my favorite recipes.  


Sites to check out:



Breakfast cookies  Easy to make and so good.  I use regular peanut butter.  

Banana oatmeal   Really any type of oatmeal is good.  

Breakfast hash   



Favorite Recipes: 

Cauliflower tacos  I use vegan mayo.  

Buddha bowls It takes time to prepare but makes enough lunches for a few days

Garlic Mushroom Cauliflower bowls   Add Chickpeas for a little more protein 

Chickpea Caesar Wrap   I used pitas instead wraps.  

Cauliflower PIcatta

Slower Cooker Curry

Sweet Potato Kale Salad Love this Salad!!!!  So good! 

Mushroom Spagetti Aglio Olio  Quick and so good!!!!  I use vegan parmesan cheese.  

Mexican Quinoa Quick and so good- add vegan cheese too.  

Quinoa stuffed peppers  Same idea in peppers

Pad Thai    So good!  

Frozen burritos   Great for freezing and reheating in a pinch.  


Chickpea Curry  Serve with Naan (Naan may not be vegan)


Also, If you are in a pinch for time, try mixing Trader Joe’s Vegan tzatziki dip with chickpeas for a pita sandwich.  I add cucumber slices and red onion for Alex.  


Few more recipes: 

Lentil Tortilla Soup

Lentil Potato Soup

Lentil Meatballs

Mad Mex ChickpeaChili  A Great chili

Chickpea skillet Super easy and fast

Vegetarian Chili  Alex can make this!!! So easy!

Chickpea Salad   Quick and easy- only lasts two days at most


I have more recipes from cooking books too, but this is a good start.  We buy Chickpeas and black beans along with veggies in bulk.  We always have a bowl of fruit also available to avoid snacking on bad foods (it works for Alex- I am still working on this!).  


For a lot of these recipes, you can use what you like best especially when it comes to beans and certain veggies.  I do a lot of prep on the weekend to have meals available during the week and always have pasta night.  Pesto is great for plant-based recipes.  


If you need more, don’t hesitate to email me.
