Just tried a delicious meal last night: Honey-Baked Lentils
Came across it at the following blog: http://thetobyshow.typepad.com/the_toby_show/2008/07/honey-baked-lentils.html
I only had regular soy sauce so I added a little extra sugar, and added a little cayenne pepper at the end to give it some kick.
Easy and delicious!

Here is a layered bean dip recipe that my family has enjoyed for-ev-er; I love making it with Tofutti Sour Cream and either no or organic cheddar cheese. Enjoy!

I recently read about the consumption of chia seeds in the amazing book Born to Run. Just bought my first bag of them at Whole Foods, and have been eating 1-2 teaspoons a day mixed with various foods.
Here are a few links for more information and recipes:

I posted a reference to this dish months and months ago under my Recipes and Such page, but I love it so much I just had to spread the word again.
The recipe is in a wonderful cookbook, Vegan With a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz (seriously, buy it), but it's also posted here: 46 Days of Vegetarianism: BBQ Pomegranate Tofu

So, I just tried out a delicious waffle recipe and loved it.
Nice and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside... I added half of a very ripe banana, and substituted the milk with almond milk (and only added 3/4 cup of it, due to the banana addition). I also added an 1/8 cup steel-cut oats. The batter was a little runny, but still turned out well; next time I will probably add a little whole wheat flour or more oats.

So my wonderful cousin sent me some amazing recipes and links to their sources... enjoy!
The original recipe is from King Arthur, but like I said....I adjusted a few things. This is for a small batch, you can double it if you want more! Just make sure to cook it on 2 baking sheets, and rotate them when stirring every 15 minutes.
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup rolled wheat
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup almonds, broken up
1/2 cup pecans, broken up
1/2 cup walnuts, broken up
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup organic virgin coconut oil
1/2 Tbsp pure vanilla
Mix dry together. Combine liquids and pour over dry. Mix well. Spread onto baking sheet. Bake at 250 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes for 1 hour, or until dry. Remove from oven and let sit until completely cooled and dry before storing in an airtight container. Before serving sprinkle with dried fruit.
I love this with regular milk or almond milk. Also, you can sub raw sunflower seeds, or any other kind of nut for the one's I mentioned in the recipe.
Also, on viveleveganrecipes.blogspot.com I enjoy her Cashew Banana Ice Cream recipe. It has bananas, cashew butter, pure maple syrup and some salt in it.
I don't remember if I found this recipe on that same website or if it is one of Ani Phyo's. Called Raw Snickers. You use dates and macadamias. Split open the date and fill with 2 macadamias. You then dip the date in a chocolate mixture made of: Equal parts coconut oil, cocoa powder, and honey (or agave), a little bit of vanilla and a touch of salt. This needs to be heated on the stove or in the microwave. Dip the date and then set it on wax paper. I store these in the fridge, and love them.
