Tofu and Cheese Stuffed Shells
Rating: Unrated
LAURENMU's rating

These stuffed shells were great. I used fat free ricotta cheese and substituted the zucchini for broccoli and spinach. Then, I put the carrots and broccoli in a food processor and chopped the spinach before cooking them. My boyfriend and I both agreed that the spinach was a great addition to the recipe.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

These are absolutely amazing! This is one of my favorite recipes on this site. I've used Sean's recipe for years, and just tried making them vegan. I used ener-g egg replacer with the falafel instead of eggs, and I used a combination of plain silk yogurt and vegan sour cream for the cucumber sauce. They were definitely a crowd pleaser. Thanks again Sean!

Spicy Tomato and Lentil Soup
Rating: Unrated
LAURENMU's rating

This is a great quick and tasty recipe. Lentils work really well, because they cook so quickly relative to other legumes. I cooked this recipe as listed with a couple of substitutions. I substituted 3 shallots for the onion, and about 1 3/4 cups of vegetable stock for the water. I'm also a big fan of using the stick blender to puree soups. It gives it that "restaurant" quality. If you like your soup a little chunkier, you can divide into half, puree one half and mix into the rest of the soup. This is a definite keeper for our vegetarian household. Thanks for the great recipe!

These were amazing! I used a stovetop grill, and they turned out really well. This works well to make falafel wraps. "Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce" goes great with these. I added about 1/4 tsp. of baking powder and followed the rest of the recipe as is. Thanks for the great naan!

This recipe wow'd our meat-eating neighbors. I followed the recipe as is, except I drained the water from the mushroom, pepper, onion mix before I layered the fixings. Thanks for the super saucy lovely lasagne! Our neighbors had thirds!!

This is beyond 5 stars! Thank you so much for the awesome recipe. I added some thinly sliced red onion to the carrot/daikon after they were blanched and let the onion, carrot, daikon, and cucumber marinate overnight in the lime juice and vinegar mixture. My husband and I were just about to dance around the house after eating this ;0) We also have some leftover sauce that we'll use to dip spring rolls tomorrow night. Thanks again for the wonderful recipe!

Cake Balls

This turned out great! I followed the recipe and crumbled the cake while warm. I used yellow cake mix and cream cheese frosting and dipped them in melted semi-sweet chocolate chips. I usually love cooking everything from scratch, so I wasn't excited about the boxed cake mix and prepared frosting, but it was a quick dessert in a flash! They taste like those little chocolate-covered donuts that you get at a convenience store...and I mean that in the BEST way possible! It reminded me of roadtrips when I was younger. Thanks for the great recipe.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

This was amazingly delicious! Thanks for sharing. I took the advice of some other reviewers and cut the sugar down a bit. I used about 2/3 cup with the cream cheese mixture and 1/2 cup for the topping. It came out sweet enough for me. I like the fact that people can adjust the sugar in the recipe to their own taste. Thanks again! This is definitely a keeper for my recipe box.

Quinoa and Black Beans

LAURENMU's rating

This was so simple and delicious. I followed the directions as they were, substituting red quinoa, and it turned out great. I would recommend this to anyone. It's healthy and filling, and you get a pretty large serving for relatively few calories. This would be great for someone trying to stick to a New Year's resolution ;0)
