Vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner features sprouts and squash

… mushrooms and onions, drizzled with maple syrup and accompanied by oven-roasted Brussels sprouts.

Weeknight vegetarian: Peel a plantain, elevate a taco | canada.com

By Joe Yonan | April 21, 2015 A day in which I learn a new taco-filling idea is a good day. I have my standbys, including lentils and other beans (black, pinto and garbanzo), squash, greens, corn, poblano peppers, sweet potatoes, eggs — in various combinations and with countless nuts, cheese, herbs, condiments and other add-ins.

Telling your kids they just ate Babe: Observations from a meat-phobic mom

By Heather Hale, Feb 27th 2015 My parents started calling me a “bleeding heart” before I can remember. I love animals. I love insects. I love the green grass that grows between my feet.
