Here’s some comfort food directly from Quick Fix Vegetarian by Robin Robertson.  (Click on any of the books inside my recommendations shop, then on the book’s page, click on the book to peek inside and get free recipes.  Most of these books have free recipes, some may not).  This is a family favorite that takes minutes to prepare and one hour to bake.  Now you can go buy a big stalk  of brussels sprouts!

Here you go:

  1. Prepare a large baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Spread 1 cup of chopped onions in the dish.
  3. Top with 1 lb baby carrots, 2 cups of halved brussels sprouts, and about 2 cups of halved fingerling potatoes.
  4. Drizzle 1 Tbsp canola oil over vegetables and sprinkle with 1 tsp thyme, salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Cover tightly and bake at 400 for 45 minutes.
  6. Uncover, stir the vegetables, and then add 4 servings of seitan cut up into chunks and 1 1/2 cups of prepared vegan gravy mix (like Hain).
  7. Cover and return to the oven for 15 more minutes.

4 hearty servings.  Weight Watchers Plus Points value: 6

In the mood for a little Chinese food?

From The 30-Minute Vegan’s Taste of the East, I tried these Hoisin Eggplant Cutlets.  They tasted just like they were from a Chinese restaurant.  This is a simple and fast recipe.  I’m discovering that it pays to have a good food processor.  Mine has been a workhorse lately.

Find the free recipe HERE. You must click on the picture of the book to take a peek inside.  This recipe is on Page 115.
