I'm  mostly vegetarian (recently started to eat seafood again), love to cook, love to eat,  and am always looking for new recipes to try!   Pasta; Ethiopian; Mexican; Southern (yes, you can make great southern food vegetarian-style!)

Grit Black Bean Chili

Grit Black Bean Chili

Makes a HUGE batch that is good in a number of different ways (burritos, over rice, etc). Recipe is from my favorite vegetarian restaurant in Athens, GA - The Grit — lizmari 11/24/2012
Power Porridge

Power Porridge

Easy, healthy, tasty, high-protein breakfast! The raisins are really good in this; I don't like banana chips, so I left them out. — lizmari 11/23/2012

Smoky Chorizo Bean Dip

Smoky Chorizo Bean Dip

I used Soyrizo (vegetarian Choizo), three chipotle peppers with the seeds mostly removed, and five cloves of garlic. It was yummy and easy to make. I served it with multigrain chips with extra sharp cheddar melted on top. Very filling! — Kjbilyeu 10/29/2012
Pumpkin Pancakes with Honey-raspberry Syrup

Pumpkin Pancakes with Honey-raspberry Syrup

Just made these again for the first time in a long time. Yummy! The batter makes enough for 2-3 people, while the syrup is enough for twice the amount the batter makes. I used fresh raspberries because they are on sale - 3 of the small (8oz) packages were perfect. — lizmari 10/13/2012
Bok Choy, Red Cabbage and Carrot Salad

Bok Choy, Red Cabbage and Carrot Salad

Nice crisp, fresh flavor! Easy to make — lizmari 6/29/2012

Golden Tofu Triangles with Rich Peanut Sauce

One of my favorites, and super easy to make! — lizmari 6/29/2012
Composed Asian Noodle Platter

Composed Asian Noodle Platter

Perfect light summer dinner. This is a bit of a stretch for four people - next time I would use twice the tofu and another red pepper. There is enough of the dressing to support doubling the tofu. — lizmari 6/27/2012
Southern New Year's Day Soup

Southern New Year's Day Soup

Made this again recently - it was even better than I remembered! Even the non-vegetarians loved it :)<br>I used kale for the greens, and fresh shaved Parmesan for the garnish - yum! — lizmari 3/28/2012

Delicious! A bit messy to eat, but well worth it (and actually a little fun). [I posted this recipe.] — lizmari 4/4/2009
Caribbean Black Beans with Mango Salsa

Caribbean Black Beans with Mango Salsa

Great combination of flavors. Next time I will probably use a little more liquid (~1/2 cup water) to make the beans a little saucier, but otherwise this was really good. [I posted this recipe.] — lizmari 3/30/2009

Pizza with Red & Green Peppers, Onions, Artichoke Hearts, and Olives

Pizza with Red & Green Peppers, Onions, Artichoke Hearts, and Olives

Quite possibly the best pizza we've ever had! It's kind of funny, because we had a huge snow storm yesterday, and we arrived at the grocery store just 5 minutes before they were going to close (early, because of the snow). We hadn't really thought about what toppings we wanted on the pizza, so we just sort of raced around and grabbed what sounded good - red onion, green and red bell peppers, tomatoes, canned artichoke hearts, and black and green olives. It turned out to be a perfect combination. [I posted this recipe.] — lizmari 3/27/2009
Mexicali Pie

Mexicali Pie

Definitely a keeper! Takes a little time to assemble (about 30-45 minutes), and then has to bake for 45 minutes, but it's easy to make, and worth the effort. The original recipe called for Mexican seasoned soy crumbles, which our store didn't have, so we used Boca crumbles. If using Boca crumbles, you will need to add some Mexican seasonings. We used about a teaspoon each of cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano. Makes 6 generous servings. [I posted this recipe.] — lizmari 3/18/2009

Spicy Soba Noodle Stir-fry

Spicy Soba Noodle Stir-fry

Terrific! Great flavor and texture! The peanut sauce is fantastic, and goes well with the soba noodles and stir-fried vegetables. Don't be scared away by the long ingredients list - this is super easy to make, especially the peanut sauce. This would also be good with tofu. If using tofu, cook the tofu longer, perhaps 10 minutes, for the best texture. Tofu may have the best flavor if marinated overnight, but 30 minutes should be sufficient.

I am about to try the Southern Style Collard Greens that you posted but I do not know what to do with the lemon juice or vinegar. Help? I love greens and am far from home trying to make some myself!

I love your photo of stuffed artichokes! My recipe for stuffed artichokes differs slightly from yours, as I don't precook the artichokes. I saute the breadcrumbs prior to stuffing and no baking.
