Spicy Roasted Edamame

Rating: 3.5 stars 62
This great dish can be served hot as a vegetable side dish, or cooled and served as a snack.

Hummus from Scratch

Rating: 4 stars 11
This is a great recipe made from dried garbanzo beans and soy beans. I cook my beans in a pressure cooker for an hour in a half water, half stock solution, but the old 'soak the beans overnight and simmer for two hours' method would also work.

Sure to Fool 'Em Vegan Stuffed Shells

Rating: 4.5 stars 28
Ok, this is my go-to recipe for those skeptics who say vegan can't be fun and flavorful! Oh yeah ... it fools them every time! Yup, even my East Coast/Italian friends! (You know who you are)! Perfect for a potluck, generous enough for a family dinner (maybe even leftovers)! Serve with salad and crusty bread! No one will know it's not ricotta! Get crazy and experiment with other veggies in the tofu mixture like mushrooms, zucchini, peppers, swiss chard, etc. for added flavor and vitamins.

Garlic Teriyaki Edamame

Rating: 4.5 stars 104
One of my favorite sushi restaurants had this yummy edamame dish, so I tried to duplicate it at home. I think I came pretty close.

Edamame-Stuffed Wontons

Rating: 4 stars 25
These delicious baked wontons are filled with an edamame (soy bean) stuffing and are sure to please! For a dipping sauce, I recommend spicy Chinese-style hot mustard, teriyaki sauce, or my personal favorite, Kraft™ Asian Toasted Sesame salad dressing.

Edamame Dumplings

Rating: 4 stars 19
These are inspired by a dim sum item I had from a fancy Asian-fusion restaurant in Manhattan. They're delicious served with a simple broth and have a silky, savory edamame filling inside. They are time consuming, but relatively easy to make. You can make them ahead of time and freeze them for future use. The dumplings are meant to be steamed or boiled but taste great deep fried as well. Garnish with sesame oil, sesame seeds, and sliced green onion.

Zesty Garden Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
An excellent, refreshing salad discovered one hot summer day. If you're tired, hot, or just need a little spice in your life, it won't take more than fifteen minutes to create this classic pick-me-up.

Edamame and Avocado Spread

Rating: 3.5 stars 13
Super easy recipe. This is great on crackers, but is even better as a sandwich filling on a toasted whole wheat pita with a slice of Muenster.

Cold Soba Noodle Salad

Rating: 5 stars 3
This cold salad is easy to make and great for prepping healthier options for the week's lunches or snacks. I like to add some heat by mixing sriracha or chili garlic paste into the Thai peanut sauce.

Crispy Edamame

Rating: 4 stars 223
Green soybeans (edamame) are baked under a Parmesan cheese crust, turning a frozen food into a delicious snack!

Chunky Vegetarian Vegetable Soup (Fast and Easy)
Rating: 4.5 stars 115

I make this super-easy vegetarian vegetable soup about every other week. It's thick and hearty, almost like a stew. Served with warm whole grain bread it makes a filling meal. Use green peas or green peas in place of okra if preferred.
