I’m often quizzed by carnivores about what vegetarians eat.  “How do you get your protein”?  “What foods do you eat in place of meat”?  Those are typically the first questions I’m asked and my response has always been “Beans, lentils and tofu.”  These easy-to-prepare, humble ingredients are a staple in my kitchen and I’d bet they grace the refrigerators and pantries of most vegans and vegetarians.

These same ingredients can also be used to create some of the most outrageous, healthy gourmet fare you’ve ever feasted on!  No kidding and we all know that beans are a heck of a lot cheaper than a pound of beef.  250 Best Beans, Lentils & Tofu Recipes includes appetizers, salads, sammies & burgers, chilies & curries, plus main dishes with and without meat.

250 Best Beans, Lentils & Tofu Recipes features a lot of down-home, simple favorites like Refried Nachos, Wild West Bean Caviar with Roasted Tomatoes, Black Bean Burgers, Very Veggie Chili and Home-Style Pork and Beans.  But if you crave exotic flavors this cookbook has that too!  There are many international inspired dishes as well, like Greek Beans with Onions, Hoisin Stir-Fried Vegetables with Tofu over Rice Noodles, Roasted Vegetable Lasagna, Moroccan Chickpea Tagine and Rajasthani Mixed Dal.

No more boring beanies and veggie weanies for me, no dumping a cold can of garbanzo beans on a pile of lettuce and calling that gourmet fixin’s.  No sir!  250 Best Beans, Lentils & Tofu Recipes has a whole chapter devoted to Salads and Dressings so I’ll be creating beautiful, tasty, and wholesome salads staring beans!  And my first one is going to be the Chickpea and Roasted Pepper Salad!  Sounds yummy right?!

Here’s a vegetarian version of Pad Thai, it’s very easy to make and can be ready in less than 20 minutes.  Enjoy!

Teriyaki Rice Noodles with Veggies and Beans
This is a variation on the noodle dish Pad Thai, but it uses beans as the protein instead of shrimp and chicken, which is the more usual combination. Teriyaki sauce is a favorite of children because of its sweet taste.
Serves 8
Vegan Friendly

Ingredients
This is a variation on the noodle dish Pad Thai, but it uses beans as the protein.

  • 2 cups rice noodles
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • ½ cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • Dash hot pepper sauce
  • 1 can (19 oz.) mixed beans, drained and rinsed (about 2 cups)

Directions

  1. Prepare rice noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onion, carrots and celery until onions are softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and broccoli; cover and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in teriyaki sauce, hot pepper sauce, beans and rice noodles; cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Tips – For a milder flavor, omit the hot pepper sauce.  This recipe reheats well, so it makes for a great packed lunch the next day.
