Balsamic Cabbage “Steaks”

Think cabbage is a boring veggie? Think again! I dare you not to be impressed and intrigued by the vibrant color of these “steaks,” which look dazzling on your plate no matter what you serve them with—I recommend Smashed Rosemary Potatoes with Sour Cream and Stewed Apples or your favorite grain.

Oil-Free Baba Ganoush

If you’re like most plant-based Epicureans, you probably have a thing for hummus. I do! But there are plenty of other Mediterranean dips that are just as wonderful. This oil-free baba ganoush is a thick & creamy roasted eggplant dip that's the perfect accompaniment to sliced raw veggies.

Sweet & Spiced Noodle Kugel

Noodle kugel is a traditional Jewish sweet or savory casserole made with noodles. This sweet kugel has the perfect blend of fruits and spices and can be served warm or cold.
