Soup, soup and more soup. Nothing makes me feel cozier than a bowl of soup. We also like to do lasagnas and stuffed shells. Also baked mac n cheese are popular. We are not veggies, but I try to mix some veg meals in each week to help with costs. So I can't wait to hear everyones responses to help add to my winter veg repetoire.

Tamale Pie (this is so good, takes a while, but it is worth it)
Chop 3 carrots, 1 lb new potatoes, 1 onion, and 2 leeks and simmer with 2 c stock and 2 c water and some salt for 15 minutes.
Peel a 2 lb winter squash and cube it. Slice a bunch of green onions. Quarter 1/4 lb of tomatillos. Add to the other vegetables along with2 c salsa and simmer 30 minutes. It should be stew-like, not soupy.
Slice 3/4 lb zucchini and add it, simmer 5 minutes. Add 1/2 c cilantro as well. Ladle the stew into a large casserole.
To make the topping, simmer 3 c corn in 1 3/4 c milk for about 5 minutes. Puree.
MIx 2 c masa harina, 2 1/2 t baking powder, and 1 1/4 t salt. Mix 1 c softenend butter until it's fluffy. Mix in corn puree and dry mixture to the butter, alternating.
Beat 7 egg whites until stiff. Fold into the topping mixture.
Sprinkle 6 ox cheddar cheese over veg in casserole. Spoon on topping.
Bake at 375 for 40 minutes.
Oh, this is so good, sounds more complicated than it is.

It's from the Joy of Cooking - which while it isn't vegetarian, the newest edition(s) have quite a few vegetarian and vegan recipes. I've adapted it for copyright purposes.

Potato Leek Soup

Ingredients:

8 leeks (the white part and a bit of the green part) chopped
2-3 large potatoes
5 1/2 cups of water with bullion cubes or veggie broth

Heat some olive oil or butter or margerine in a pot on low. Add leeks and cook about 15-20 minutes until soft but not browned. Add potatoes, broth, and boil. Once boiled, turn heat down and simmer another 20 minutes or so until potatoes are soft and break easily when poked. Blend until smooth. Add salt and pepper.

ETA: This makes enough for four LARGE bowls of soup.

It was sooooo good tonight! We had it with fresh bread and Earth Balance.

Veggie pot pie warmed out bellies last night!

I cooked diced potatoes, carrots, celery, and onion in some water until soft (I used the pressure cooker). I then added sliced portabello mushrooms and some frozen peas to the pot and let it sit until it was all heated through. I added veggie gravy mix (I like the ones by Frontier Herbs, they add nice thickness) then pured it in a casserole dish.

I made a batch of whole wheat biscuit dough and rolled it out the fit the dish, then covered the filling with it. It baked at 450 for 20 minutes and was so good I had it for breakfast too!

Don't know if this is the correct spelling but my ex hubby used to call it Jambought.

2 zucchini cut up
4 or 5 potatoes cut up
bottle of spaghetti sauce
comes out best in a crock pot

Pour half jar of sauce in,add some water so it's half way up,set crock pot to low and throw in the zucchini and potatoes and cover and let it cook on low all day long,just make sure the potatoes and stuff are done and turn off and let it sit uncovered for a half hour and then serve on top of either rice or elbow macaronis

nak-

i love making loaves and gravy this time of year-
millet loaf is especially wonderful but also try rice/quinoa/couscous
cook 1 cup millet then mix with sauteed/diced garlic/onion carrots and celery
place in loaf pan -pressing it in tight-and bake-simple and yummy with blackbean gravey or your choice of gravy
while the oven is on- bake some delicata or other winter squash.

butternut squash lasagna- omg this is heavenly
bake and puree a squash with nutmeg and the like then use this purree as a filling in a vegan lasagna- we use rice and nutritional yeast cheese and layer it up with lots of sauce and squash.
even my extra picky 5 yo eats these meals!!!

Vegan Mac-n-cheese Sauce:

1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flour (white or wheat)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp yellow mustard powder
1 cup water
1 1/2 tsp soy margarine (Willow Run brand is the best for this)

Mix dry ingredients with water and whisk until smooth. Put in pot with margarine and heat on medium until thick.

THIS IS SO EASY! We put it on noodles, in rice, dip chips in it, pour it on potatoes or broccoli, dip "chik'n" nuggets in it, etc. Have fun!

I make mac n cheese that is essentially the same as Erin's recipe except that I add a packet of the "Chreese" powdered vegan cheese mixture to the cheese sauce as it heats and it makes it much more authentic (IMO). I also use the Mozarella Vegan Gourmet Cheese instead of Cheddar.

I also made it once with Silk coffee creamer instead of rice or soy milk and it made it much richer.
