Cooking an all plant Vegan meal is the perfect way to get out of a food rut and experiment with new flavors. The nutty taste of protein rich quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) was a surprising hit with my carnivorous family.

Vegans are not afraid to think outside the pot when it comes to vegetables, who else would think of putting Brussels Sprouts in tomato sauce for pasta! Chickpeas rock the protein and fiber charts and are so tasty they show up on many a Vegan plate.
