Clean Eating Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding


Without a doubt, the best part of publishing a personal post like my Why I Gave Up Running post is reading all of the amazing responses people share.

Seriously, thank you all so much.

Banana Bread Pudding

I’ll try to make the blog a little more personal in the future, although it’s difficult because most of the personal stuff in my life involves other people. To respect the privacy of my real-world friends, I have a rule to not write about them or post their photos, which is why most of the pictures you see on this blog are of just me.

For today, you get another recipe… with chocolate. Hopefully you won’t mind. 😉

Clean Eating

I’m honored to feature a recipe today from Tosca Reno, a New York Times best-selling author and one of the most well-respected and influential figures in the world of healthy food. This bread pudding recipe comes from her Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook, which contains 150 meat-free recipes free of processed ingredients, refined sugars, and anything artificial (note to vegetarians: there is a chapter on fish).

The book, which comes with complete nutritional information for every recipe, is divided into ten chapters from breakfast to dessert. It also covers topics such as how to be a healthy vegetarian, eating vegetarian on a budget, and making fast-food and holiday recipes. Upon receiving the cookbook in the mail, I right away bookmarked at least fifteen things I wanted to make. With bananas, cinnamon, and chocolate chips, this healthy bread pudding was obviously on top of the list!

Banana Bread Pudding

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Pudding

(Adapted from Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook, reprinted with permission)

  • 2 1/2 cups (640ml) milk of choice
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) arrowroot or cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) sucanat or sugar of choice
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 cups day-old bread, torn into 1-to-2-inch pieces, lightly packed
  • 2 extra-ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 to 1 cup (120-240ml) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F (177C). Grease a 1.5 to 2-quart ceramic dish and set aside. Thoroughly whisk together all but last three ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients, and stir to combine, mashing the bananas a little and allowing the bread to absorb most of the liquid. Scrape into the prepared dish, and press down to smooth the top. Let sit 15 minutes so bread absorbs more liquid, then bake uncovered until lightly brown and firm (about 30 minutes). Serve warm. For questions about this recipe or substitutions, please feel free to ask this recipe’s creator, Tosca Reno!

  1. ariana says

    oh how can I have a favorite meatless meal! They are all so wonderfully delicious! I suppose though I like Tofu Loaf with sweet potatoes and fruit!

  2. Stephanie B. says

    I make sweet potato black bean burritos that I love, and they’ve been a hit with my friends and family. They also freeze really well which is great for some ready-made meals when I don’t have time to cook dinner!

  3. Sandra says

    My current new favorite is my aunt’s meatless lentil loaf….soo good, and I never refuse a good vegetable bake. Thanks for the give-a-way opportunity, this book sounds perfect.

    • shaina says

      I was also going to say the meatless lentil loaf that i’ve made a few times now. I got my recipe from More Peas, Thank You which is an amazing cookbook. I make it with whipped cauliflower mashed ‘potatoes’ and a sweet potato/cinnamon goodness also from the book. yum early thanksgiving

  4. Kayla says

    Your 1 million vegetables lentil stew. Ahh. It’s so wonderful! 😀 And of course I’m already liking your Facebook page!

  5. Kathryn says

    I am currently in love with your coconut cookie dough oatmeal! So at this moment, that’s probably my favorite meatless meal (as long as it has chocolate chips). I also will say Mac n cheese, or spaghetti with lots of veggies in the sauce.

    You look great, by the way!

  6. janae @ bring joy says

    “(To respect the privacy of my real-world friends, I have a rule to not write about them or post their photos, which is why most of the pictures you see on this blog are of just me.)”
    Good for you! I even try to limit what I share about my kids or spouse. It’s a tricky thing–the reason why people love/read blogs is for the personal touch, the intimate aspect. But we must draw boundaries as bloggers & realize that it’s okay to not share certain things.

  7. Bethanny says

    My favorite meatless meal is probably a delicious vegetable soup my mom made me back when I was a really new to not eating meat and had a bad cold. I’m not sure how she manages to make a bunch of random vegetables floating around with stock and spices taste like home, but I’ve never been able to replicate it.

  8. Lyndsey B says

    Any kind of oatmeal would have to be my favorite meatless recipe! A warm, gooey bowl topped with lots of fresh fruit is the best 🙂

  9. Erin says

    My favorite meatless meal is quinoa with chickpeas, cranberries, sweet potatoes, curry, and cumin! So good! My go-to lunch!

  10. Karen w. says

    My favorite meatless meal is probably pasta with freshly made pesto but I also really like stir fry, peanut noodles and pretty much anything else vegetarian or vegan. Also, just about all of my favorite desserts are from this blog! 🙂

  11. Gigi says

    Mmm my favorite meatless meal is definitely vegetarian chili. Like, the kind from Trader Joe’s or Amy’s Kitchen, or homemade. This sounds bizarre, but plain coconut yogurt tastes really good mixed in it!

  12. Anushka W. says

    My favorite meatless meal would have to be your delicious black bean brownies! Protein-filled AND a chocolate-y dessert?! What could be better. (:

  13. Vanessa says

    I have so many favorites, and it really depends on my mood, but right now, I’m enjoying Italian Stew with vegan Italian not-sausage. It’s perfect for these cold wintery evenings!

  14. Kathleen Lovito says

    This looks fabulous and beautiful! Everyday I cook I try plating up my food as professionally as you do, Katie.
    The Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook sounds really interesting. My favorite vegetarian meal is meatless Pumpkin Chili

  15. Jessica Wilson says

    Gnocchi or pasta with a creamy tarragon sauce! Or good cheeses with fresh bread and roasted veggies 🙂

    Katie, thank you for the giveaway, but thank you more for all the inspiration and wonderful recipes!

  16. Amanda L says

    This cookbook sounds wonderful!! Currently my favorite cozy, cold-weather, comforting meatless meal is a roasted sweet potato with roasted broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts on the side!! Sooo yum and makes me just want to curl up under a blanket

  17. Michael Vogt says

    Being away in college and living on my own, I realize that not only is it healthier to go meatless, but it is sooo much cheaper.

    My favorite meatless dish would be a kohlrabi, onion, and tofu stir fry with a peanut butter/soy sauce/ginger base on a bed of wilted Kale.


  18. Rachel Elwood says

    Wow, that bread puddin looks good! I’ll have to try it one of these days. My favorite meatless meal: vegetarian spaghetti with mushrooms, peppers, and onions! With lots of parm cheese, of course!

  19. Jennifer says

    My favorite meatless meal is definitely lentil soup, especially since it’s been freeeeezing outside. Lentils, potatoes, broccoli – so delicious! AND it’s budget friendly 🙂 Perfect for a cold day.

  20. Kayla says

    Fav meatless meal? How to decide?? My go to option would be a salad because its easy to throw togther plus allows for endless experiments! 🙂 But I also have a really big spot in my heart for vegetarian lasagna that uses zucchini in place of pasta!! Hmm hmm good!!!

  21. Emily says

    oh man that is an EASY question. it’s gotta be your lentil sloppy joes!! (without the cinnamon or sugar though) 🙂 🙂

    • EVA says

      Dude, she’s fine. I’m the exact same size and my nutritionist and blood tests say I’m in perfect health. Katie just has a powerhouse of a metabolism from all the whole foods she eats. YA DIG?

  22. Elizabeth says

    Thanks for the giveaway Katie. My favorite meal is probably veggie sushi, but that is more of a special occasion food so I end up eating a lot of rice and beans. It is fun to hear some meal suggestions here in the comments though! 🙂

  23. Liz says

    I have so many fun meatless recipes, but my go-to is an egg-free, meat-free, crustless spinach “quiche”. I take a package of frozen spinach and let it thaw while I cook a sweet potato or yam in the microwave – enough to mash it up. I mix the mashed sweet potato with the spinach, and then I add in cheese (I’m not vegan so I use whatever I have on hand, but I’m sure vegan cheese would work fine). Cook it for about 30 minutes and YUM!

  24. Becca says

    Anything with black beans! I love just black beans cooked with some onions and tomatoes. And then I’ll put it on a sweet potato. It’s a frequent go-to.

  25. Am says

    One of my favorite meatless meals ever has been Braised Bok Choy. My mom made it one night, as she was trying all these veggie recipes from a cookbook, and she said I could have some. Some turned out to be, “You can have some more,” which turned into me finishing the entire pan of it which was pretty much an entire head of bok choy! 😀

  26. Sarah G. says

    My favorite meatless meal is falafel served on a salad with a drizzle of tahini. The only thing that could top it would be homemade banana “ice cream” topped with peanut butter coconut oil magic shell and crunchy granola. Mmmm.

  27. juliana says

    that’s a toughy one!! I have so many…. but right now I’m really craving my veggie chicken marsala!

    ps – this is the first time I’m posting a comment (yay for give-aways), but I have been in obsessive adoration of your blog for awhile now & have LOVED everything I’ve made so far. I’m crossing my fingers for some delicious Thanskgiving day recipes 🙂

  28. Molly Steffen says

    I will definitely be trying this recipe, and I would love the new cookbook. I admit I own all her other cookbooks, but the vegetarian one sounds amazing!

  29. Abigail says

    What is my favorite meatless meal? Gosh, I don’t know. Raw veggie lasagna? Sushi with quinoa and avocado? Maybe Tofu Stir fry? Yeah, I’ll have to go with the lasagna…or stir fry. Ugh! Okay, final decision, the stir fry.

  30. Peggy says

    My fave meatless meal is falafel, most likely because it’s the only vegetarian meal outside of pasta I have found that my husband likes!!!!

  31. Kathleen says

    My Favourite meatless meal is black bean burritos. When the cheese is all melty, the brown rice is cooked to perfection and the tomato salsa is juuust right, it’s like heaven on earth.

  32. Anna @ Your Healthy Place says

    Ooh great giveaway! I’ve wanted this book for a while and actually won it in another giveaway but was told Tosca Reno’s company had shut down so they couldn’t send me the prize after all :/.

    My favourite meatless meal is veggie burgers! Ironically as a meat eater I never liked burgers much but since becoming vegetarian there are so many great veggie burger recipes out there that now it’s a definite fave!

  33. Larissa says

    Thanks for offering the giveaway! It’s hard to choose a favourite meal, but I love salad rolls, Kale salad with soy beans and homemade almond butter dressing, and I love throwing together different stir-frys! I recently had an amazing banana bread dark chocolate bread pudding in a little restaurant in Vancouver, I hope this tastes similar because it was amazing!!

  34. Stephanie Jeffrey says

    My husband and I started eating better about 6 months ago. We started doing “Meatless Mondays”. I came across a recipe for a black bean nacho burger. It’s not vegan but it was the first vegetarian meal my husband truly enjoyed, so much that he was excited the next time I said I was going to make it. I altered the recipe a little to make a little healthier (less cheese, baked chips, my homemade wholegrain buns) and it is by far both our favorite meatless meal. It’s funny but I never even liked black beans and this is one of my favorite meals and you black bean brownies are my favorite brownies! Next thing I will actually eat and enjoy tofu..doubt it lol

  35. Emily @SinfulNutrition says

    I have a lot of favs since I’ve been a vegetarian for about 7 years now, but I’ve been loving me some lentils lately. Especially as a lentil spaghetti sauce or in my BBQ lentil bites. Thanks to you both for the awesome giveaway!

  36. EVA says

    AH! Well, I’m FINALLY commenting on a Chocolate Covered Katie recipe. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and now I have no more excuses to wait since that cookbook would really help out a college student who is having trouble keeping her gut clean with a “dirty” gluten and dairy infested meal plan. I am a diehard meat lover. Unfortunately, I can’t afford meat here in downtown Chicago. So I’ve been thriving off of meatless meals! I could always go for a heaping bowl of Rice Chex or any variation of chili, but my favorite would have to be pad thai (none of them egg shenanigans). It’s a rare occasion when I can score it, but when I do, I score a touchdown and my stomach ends up looking like a football field.

  37. Araceli Ramos says

    Finally a vegan bread pudding 🙂
    My favorite meatlless meal is my moms stuffed
    peppers in a red sauce with brown rice!

  38. Vix says

    My favorite meatless meal is the Sweet Potato and Quinoa Patties with Fruit Salsa from Jess at How Sweet It Is. She uses blackberries for her salsa, but we’ve found the best to be blueberries when they’re in season in Michigan! =)

  39. Amber says

    My favorite meatless meal is lentil soup a friend gave me the recipe for. Tons of veggies, a little pasta, and a tiny kick from a can of Rotel. So yummy!

  40. Kaiti says

    Black bean and quinoa casserole with yams and salsa! I have not been able to fully enforce a weekly meatless day in my house, but this recipe has been an amazing way to get started.

  41. Amanda says

    My favorite meatless meal would definitely have to be a quinoa salad with almonds, cherries, corn, squash, tomatoes, onions, and mushrooms. So delicious!!

  42. Candace Spencer says

    My favorite vegetarian meal is spinach broccoli soup. I am contemplating vegetarianism but would like to increase my vegetable consumption regardless. The soup is absolutely delicious and flavorful, even when you use water instead of chicken stock.

  43. Samm says

    Stuffed acorn squash! I take an acorn squash and cut it in half, then bake it for 35-40 minutes, and fill each half with pre-cooked quinoa, peppers, onions, tomatoes, beans and anything else that sounds good 🙂 Top it with cheese, bake for ten more minutes and I’m good to go!

    Can’t wait to try out this recipe!!

  44. Juliana says

    My favorite meatless meal is something I whipped up on my own. I call it sweet potato breakfast mash. Its basically a baked sweet potato mashed up with a banana, flax seed, a little almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and whatever else I have lying around. Sometimes I add some silken tofu, maple syrup, or berries. The variations are endless. It might sound kind of weird having a sweet potato for breakfast, but I promise it tastes great. Bonus points if you heat it up before eating! 🙂

  45. Becca says

    Two of my favorite meals lately have been, firstly, vegetables (whatever I have) stir-fried with ginger, soy sauce, chilies, and peanut butter, and secondly, The Daily Garnish’s Lemon Parsley Pasta. Both are simple but really tasty!

  46. Rachel says

    My favorite meatless meal would be a big sweet potato bowl topped with black beans, mango and red peppers. Awesome giveaway! I

  47. Katie says

    i like anything with black beans!
    the kale salad from Costco is my new favorite! so yummy!!
    I want to try most of these suggestions people are commenting with!! 🙂

  48. Emily S. says

    My favorite meatless meal is angel hair pasta tossed in a stir fry of mixed fresh or frozen vegetables like bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, french beans, and carrots! YUM!
    …Also, cereal 😉

  49. Tom says

    Wow i have got a lot of favorites but the top favorite is my mom’s amazing wok tofu , she is make it with onion and some seasoningn in a chinili – soy marinad , this meatless meal is more than just amazing !!!!

  50. Liz says

    My favorite meatless meal would have to be a pumpkin lasgna recipe I found online. Not only is there pumpkin in it, but also Swiss chard. Yum…

  51. Abi says

    My favorite meatless meal would have to be brown rice cooked with beans, stewed tomatoes, and spices, and sprinkled with nutritional yeast. Yum!

  52. Carroll says

    Hmm, y favorite meatless meal, I say a sweet potato
    Loaded with anything, peanut butter and apples, or chili. And some cooked green beans on the side.

  53. Rachelle says

    This looks absolutely BOMB. Definitely on my list of things to make. My favorite meatless meal is marinated tofu. Yummy!

  54. Annette says

    My fav. meatless meal is my mother’s Lentil Tacos. I can eat it every week. It’s even won over serious meat-eaters. It’s a restaurant worthy dish!

  55. arisa says

    My favourite meatless meal would definitely be my breakfast (love oatmeals) and desserts (chocolate!) which i usually get off from your awesome blog!

  56. Leslie says

    I love your posts, Katie! (Especially the running one–I feel like at some point in the future, I’ll near a similar point myself, and it’s so nice to hear personal, informed stories from someone I really respect.)

    But, my favourite meatless (breakfast) meal is definitely… OATMEAL. Think of ALL the variations! For dinners, I love making a vegetable/bean/sweet potato mix with your Sloppy Joe seasonings, too!

  57. Stacy Tucker says

    My favorite meatless meal is Sweet Potato enchiladas. My fiance makes the most delicious rendition of these and you don’t miss the meat or dairy!

  58. Macy says

    At the moment, I’m eating an excessive amount of roasted sweet potatoes and cauliflower. But anything with chocolate also floats my boat. =)

  59. Abbie @ Needs Salt says

    This bread pudding looks awesome! The addition of chocolate is perfect – it just belongs.
    I’d have to say that my favorite meatless meal is a dish that I make pretty often with Quinoa and veggies fried up in coconut oil, almost like Chinese fried rice – it is so good.
    Pinning this!

  60. Janine says

    I love to have a meatless meal here and there and am slowly warming my other half up to it, too! I love this Southwest Stuffed Sweet Potato that I make and he has made a Quinoa Mac and Cheese that was really tasty, too!

  61. Jen E says

    I have 2 favorite vegan meals right now lol. Shepherds pie which I never had before since my hubby introduced it to me this year and I love it with lentils. My other one is veggie casserole, it’s like green bean casserole but with veggies. I love comfort vegan food 🙂

  62. Laura says

    Oh my, I could seriously dive into a huge bowl of that bread pudding!! Will have to make it this week now and it’s all your fault. LOL

    I would have to say my favorite meatless meal is a nice black bean burger or even crumbling those burgers and using them for yummy nachos!

    Thanks…now I”m hungry! LOL

  63. Ashley Friedman says

    My absolute favorite is Eggplant Parmesan and since I’m often too lazy to make it from scratch, I love using Dominex brand Eggplant Cutlets or the ones from Trader Joes. Thanks for this recipe, I just bought a big casserole dish for a Thanksgiving recipe that ended up failing so now I have something else to use it for!

  64. Kali says

    Seriously, there are too many to chose from since all I eat is meatless :). I’ve been a vegetarian for 17 years. One of my favorite things to eat is taco salad, so I will say that.

  65. Lori says

    My current favorite dish is your Green Noodles recipe. It has turned me into a cilantro addict. I make it once a week now. Thanks!

  66. Kristen says

    I would love to win the book giveaway! Thanks for featuring a recipe from it! My favorite meatless meal at the moment is a California veggie burger salad with some raw snack chips and a raw macaroon! Yum!

  67. Amanda says

    we are fairly new to the meatless world, one favorite so far is an Indian stir-fry. I don’t ha e a lot of recipes yet, so this one is made often, but always a hit. I would def. love a cookbook full of meals:) fingers crossed:):)

  68. Sarah says

    Well right now I’m eating a rather awesome bowl of quinoa, green leaf lettuce, and pomegranate, topped with ground pistachos and hemp seeds. It’s certainly my favorite meatless meal of the moment!

  69. Tammy says

    One of my favorites this time of year is Paleo Pumpkin Waffles. Not only are they meatless, but they don’t have any grains either. They are SO good and they keep me full for hours!

  70. Debbie (Accidently Delish) says

    i have always wanted to make bread pudding, but just have never done it! i don’t know why, but this looks amazing!

    my favorite meatless meal at the moment since it’s getting colder is my vegetarian chili. what i love about it is i can always switch up the flavor profile just by adjusting simple spices and it’s so easy to throw in the crock pot to be ready for me when i get home from work. it’s so comforting on these chilly nights!

  71. Kait says

    Favorite meatless meal– smoothies/”ice-cream” made with almond milk, tofu, spinach, vanilla extract, stevia, maybe some cinnamon, pumkin pie spice, and/or chocolate… yum. 🙂 AND the homemade larabars! I could seriously eat a lifetime supply in one sitting.

  72. Natalie says

    My favourite meatless meal varies with the season. In the summer I love zucchini pasta with a garlic- tahini sauce, and in the winter I love a big bowl of lentil soup with lots of veggies and kale.

  73. Caroline says

    My favorite meatless meal comes from Moosewood I call it Hippie Soup but they call it Mushroom-Sesame-Tofu Soup. It’s loaded with vegetarian proteins and can be used as a soup or stew, great over rice or potatoes or any grain. Absolutely a complete meal all to itself and simple to put together, very forgiving with measurements and open to experimentation. You can find it in New Recipes from Moosewood Restaurant. Cheers!

  74. Kristin says

    My favorite non-meat meal is my protein no bake overnight oats. I don’t use regular whey protein. I use raw Sunwarrior plant base protein, mix it with homemade almond milk, 1/4c of oat, chia seeds (it becomes pudding like) and other ingredients you like put it in the fridge overnight. It’s ready for breakfast when I am in a rush or my post work out snack the next day.

    I incorporated some of your recipes with my vegan protein powder to make it a power post work out food.

  75. Rachel Herriott says

    My favourite meatless dish is Pad Thai with tofu. Not sure if it’s because it tastes great or if it’s because it’s the only dish my husband cooks! I love cooking but it’s always nice when he takes a turn 🙂

  76. chani says

    a blended butternut squash soup and some baked sweet potato fries on the side with a homemade larabar for dessert. does it get better than this? well, some homemade chocolate bars i guess. anywho, that sounds like a great recipe!

  77. Taylor says

    My favorite meatless meal would be oatmeal, but sadly I can’t eat it 3 meals a day seven days a week. ^-^ So I would probably have to go with Skinny Eggplant Rollatini.

  78. Avra-Sha Faohla says

    Meatless meal: buckwheat with garlic and sauteed mushrooms and onions, and a side of baked sweet potatoes and broccoli in any form. Not sure if that’s my FAVORITE, but it’s pretty delicious.

  79. Janel M. says

    My favorite meatless meal is not a homemade one–there’s a local restaurant that makes a killer vegan Pad See Ew and Pad Kee Mao that we grab for takeout every Thursday. It’s a delicious ritual 🙂

  80. cynthia says

    My favorite is the always versatile rice bowl — on a base of brown rice (or barley or any other grain), I layer beans, just about any kind of vegetables (sauteed mushrooms and onions, steamed broccoli my faves), with salsa and/or guacamole. With the guacamole, even the kids will eat and enjoy!

  81. Sarah says

    My favorite meatless meal?? You ask that as if I have a favorite meat meal… Haha. It’s simple really… peanut butter and banana on toast. That’s the best thing in the world, I think!

  82. Kara Latham says

    Any large assortment of veggies (sometimes I just use Brussels sprouts) pan or oven roasted with balsamic vinegar:)

  83. Cari says

    My favorite meatless meal is anything with portobello mushrooms or chickpeas. Thanks for doing this website- you have changed my outlook. I want to serve healthy desserts for Thanksgiving to my guests, even though it is a holiday and it should be “ok” to “splurge.” My mindset has shifted and your recipes are amazing!

  84. Lori Z says

    How do you pick 1 favorite meatless meal?! So many to choose from. With the colder temps right now I would have to say sweet potato and black bean chili!

  85. R Hylton says

    My whole family (including my dad and sister who are not vegetarians love this meatless meal. Tempeh burgers with avocado, bean sprouts, garden fresh tomatoes and grilled onions on sprouted wheat toast. It’s delicious!

  86. Amy says

    I’m a pescetarian so I apprectiate you letting me know about this cookbook. It’s simple but black beans, brown rice, some cheese and salsa is my idea of comfort food.

  87. Cheryl says

    Assuming banana bread does not count as a meal, I would have to go with Spaghetti marinara. I’m a flexetarian and I don’t eat red meat so I never put beef in my pasta but I’ve always loved it this way anyway!

  88. starchild202 says

    I have serveral, but I think, especially right now, I am loving Trader Joe’s turkey-less stuffed turkey loaf. It is so yummy and even comes with individual gravy packets!

  89. Jana Bennett says

    My favorite meatless meal totally depends on the season. This fall, I’ve been loving roasted root veggies over herb flavored couscous.

  90. Amanda Woody says

    Though it’s hard to say for sure, I think my favorite meatless meal is a mushroom parmesan pasta that I make for my boyfriend and me about once a week. 🙂 This cookbook sounds wonderful.

  91. Nuria Holzleg says

    My favourite meatless meal is quesadillas! Filled with sliced red peppers, onions, some spices, grated cheese and sour cream – it’s filling and so tasty!

  92. Esther Sokolinski says

    Hi Katie!
    Long time lurker here, posting for the first time! I love your site, especially as I recently became vegetarian. My favorite meatless meal is probably a good Asian stir fry, with lots of fresh green beans, mushrooms, and fried tofu. Also…french fries. How could I forget fries?
    Keep up the good work!

  93. Nikki says

    That is cruel and beautiful at the same time. I WANT THAT NOW! And I really kind of want that cookbook now too. And, I have liked your facebook page, but in all truths, don’t like it. I LOVE it.

  94. Cookie says

    This would be so good with some kind of caramel sauce. Or made with eggnog instead of milk. And somehow still be healthy? Maybe not…

  95. Brooke says

    A kale salad with homemade balsamic, rice vinegar and honey dressing topped with almonds, dried cranberries and goat cheese! Yum!

  96. Bethany says

    My favorite meatless meal is the ultimate veggie burger! How delicious and good for you at the same time! I love your recipes and am looking foward to making some CCK desserts this holiday season 🙂

  97. Miriam says

    Favorite veggie meal: a ‘roast chicken’ dahl I made with rosemary, garlic and coconut pl. my best friend asked if I put chicken stock in there, and was surprised when I said it was just herbs and oni

  98. Val says

    One of my favorites is a bowl of cold leftover brown rice with chopped up walnuts or pecans, whatever fresh fruit you have (in summer blueberries, strawberries, banana etc – lately I’m using honeycrisp apples) and sprinkled cinnamon with soy milk. It’s good for any meal 🙂
    I could use a cookbook to get ideas and help my husband and kids start eating more like I do 🙂

  99. Elizabeth says

    Favorite meatless meal is anything with peanut butter, haha. I don’t cook much, so maybe this cookbook will help get me started in that department!

  100. Kate says

    My favorite meatless meal a veggie stir fry. I just love all of the flavors. I am also so glad you posted this because I wanted to make something healthy for Thanksgiving and I do believe this is it!

  101. Kaceyjt says

    My hubby and I have been eating a plant-based diet for the past year and have so many vegetarian dishes we love…I think one of our favorites is lasagna! There are so many delicious varieties that don’t include meat!

  102. Maya says

    I am a 12 year old girl who is obsessed with your blog! I read it, try out recipes, change them, and share them! I’m not vegan so most of the time I make your recipes with cow milk ect. I also love cooking. I beg my parents to let me cook sometimes. And I actually most often cook meatless meals. I don’t think I could choose a favorite, because they are all so good, but I think if I had to choose a favorite, it would by my orange tofu. I invented this recipe, and revised it, and now I don’t even have it written down. It just stays in my head. I have always been a big runner. I’m on a track team, and cross country team, and I have gone to district of the Hersheys meet, meaning that I was one of the fastest girls my age for the 800. I have been in many cross country meets, and I often fear that what happened to you, will someday happen to me. But I know that whatever happens to me will be my choice, and that I have tried over 20 physical activities, so I will have some choices. Thanks so much for providing giveaways and such good food recipes! Keep up the good work!

    I would have to say my favorite vegetarian meal is sauted veggies with quinoa. I will saute any vegetable I have on hand and top quinoa with the mix. Super easy, filling, and depending on the veggie mix, tastes different each time.

  104. Karin says

    Ooh I love meatless meals, for breakfast I love my volumising oatmeal which I have everyday, I add mix berries, banana, cinnamon, ginger, chia seeds, LSA mix (I try to eat as many superfoods a day as I can).
    For tea I love to make a tofu stir-fry with pad Thai noodles.
    I bulk it up with heaps of veges usually cauliflower, broccoli, kale, cabbage, onion, mushroom, peppers, zucchini, carrots.
    I make my own sauce and use half to marinate the tofu, the sauce is usually made up of rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, chili, ginger, garlic, coriander.
    I cook the noodles in boiling water and let soak for five minutes. Cook the veges in the wok, add the sauce and tofu to heat through, then add the noodles and serve, yum!!!

  105. Rosalyn Weinstein says

    At this time of year my favorite meatless meal is vegetarian chili; though all year I can eat a good vegetable lasagna. I use the zucchini as noodles so it’s even gluten free. Thanks for sharing whatever you do, personal or not.

  106. Faith says

    Right now my favourite meatless meal is a salad I make with frozen vegetarian potstickers from Trader Joe’s, edamame, and stir-fried veggies in a little sesame oil.

  107. Melissa says

    My family loves spaghetti and salad. Simple and easy for little ones in the house. But, a new cookbook would give some great inspiration for new meals! thanks

  108. Nicole says

    This looks so good! My roomies will love this! We’re pretty obsessed with the chocolate banana combo.
    One of my favorite meatless meals is chickpea curry 🙂

  109. Brooke says

    A favorite because it’s an easy, family-friendly weeknight meal: baked potato (or baked sweet potato) bar. Set up at least 4-5 toppings and have fun building then devouring! Thank you for the book opportunity….have always loved Tosca and Clean Eating!

  110. Katie says

    Bean chili is my favorite this time of year. On occasion, I make it for my dad (who is a vegetarian)…but everyone else in the house ends up eating it as well! So I guess it’s a family favorite as well.

  111. Gina says

    I discovered my favorite meatless meal this summer when I was living on an island in Northwest Washington called San Juan Island (if you Google it, you’ll probably find lots of articles about Orca whales because the island is famous for the Orcas that live in the surrounding waters). The island has one very small town, lots of lush fields and forests and tons of deer, since they have no predators. When you are there in early fall, you notice how the green bushes turn purple–with blackberries! I went on a blackberry picking-spree with friends with one goal in mind: to make coconut blackberry ice cream. There are essentially three ingredients: creamy coconut milk, mashed freshly-picked blackberries, and maple syrup (or another sweetener). If dessert counts as a meal, this coconut San Juan Island blackberry maple ice cream is the best food I have ever eaten in my life. Not only did it taste fantastic, but it is also my favorite because my fellow berry-harvesters are the people with whom I lived this summer and created wonderful memories: kayaking with Orca whales, playing driftwood crochet, jumping off the dock into the bay at midnight, and going out in the boats during a new moon to watch the bioluminescence make our kayaks, paddles, and all the curious seals around us glow as if trailing with fairy dust. Then going back to the “Dandelion House” and eating coconut San Juan Island blackberry maple ice cream really makes it something special. I’m sure you can understand now why this is my favorite meatless meal–even if dessert doesn’t count as a meal, I eat it for breakfast, too!

  112. sylvia p says

    Indian anything! Saag and dahl and basmati rice! Yum!

    Also ethiopian split peas, lentils and injera bread! Sooo good! And vegan!

  113. Lisa Weaver says

    My favorite meatless meal is probably hummus topped with Greek yogurt, topped with cucumbers, tomatoes, cilantro and eaten with carrot sticks and akmak crackers.

  114. Barbara says

    My favorite meatless meal? Well, spaghetti is always good, but I really like quinoa and black beans. Throw in veggies and spices, depending on my mood. Filling, covers food groups, and yummy!

  115. Tonya says

    I love dal- an Indian lentil dish that my college roommate taught me to make. lots of veggies and spiciness adjusted to taste and mood. Yum!

  116. Tamara says

    Oh too many to choose from, but some favorites include lentils (soups and tacos) and coconut red curry with tofu and tons of vegetables.

  117. Jess says

    My favorite meatless meal is probably the aloo gobi at the local Indian restaurant, but unfortunately all my attempts at Indian food have failed.

    So, at home I tend to fall back on the tried-and-true favorite, pizza!

  118. Colleen says

    I don’t have one favorite! We’re vegetarian, so ALL of our meals are meatless! Some family favorites are bean burgers, homemade pizza, chili, minestrone, black bean soup, green chile stew, and spanish rice.

  119. Carrie D. says

    I don’t think I can pick just one favorite meal! One of my faves is baked tofu with bamboo rice and whatever veggies I have on hand. Good stuff. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  120. meg says

    thanks for the giveaway! I am loving grain salads right now – farro with caramelized onions, mushrooms, beets & tons of goat cheese

  121. Melissa says

    This bread pudding just took on the #1 spot on my to-bake list! 🙂 my favorite meatless meal is your 1million vegetables lentil stew! (btw, I just made it for my mom this week and she went crazy over it! – great recipe!) I also love “fajita” salads made with fresh salsa, sautéed peppers and onions, black beans, and avocado.

  122. Megan says

    I’m a big fan of veggie chili or beans and rice! I’m in college so those things are easy to throw in the crock pot and eat for dinner later!

  123. Claire says

    My favorite meatless meal is my own quickie vegetable curry:
    1 microwaved ‘baked’ potato, diced
    1 onion, sliced (plus sliced peppers or mushrooms or just about any other sliced/diced veg)
    1 can diced tomatoes
    2 T curry paste of choice
    – sauté onion in curry paste over med heat till onion is tender.
    – add diced cooked Potato; stir to coat and sauté to brown a little.
    – deglaze with tomatoes; heat to boiling, reduce and gently simmer to desired consistency. Serve (yourself!) as a stew.

  124. Lauren says

    Oh dear…just one favorite meatless meal? I suppose it totally depends on my mood, but I’m always a huge fan of microwaved cinnamon apple oat bran. That and chocolate sweet potato cake in a cup (adapted from your chocolate cake in a cup recipes, Katie!).

  125. Karen says

    My fav meatless meal is hard to choose! It’s either rice and dahl with lots of hot mango pickle (I was born and raised in India, which explains my bias–and I was a vegitatian until Dx with multi-grain allergies) OR cuban black beans and rice with hot sauce–rice has been a great aid in coping with my wheat/gluten allergies!

    One of the reasons I LOVE your website is because I’m not only allergic to most grains, but also milk…so use either soy or almond milk. It’s like your website was created just for me!

    • Annie says

      Lol I know the feeling. I used to be highly allergic to wheat and very sensitive to glutenous grains and milk; so this blog was a lifesaver for me. I’m recovered from my allergies now, with still some mild sensitivity to a few things, but I am sympathetic to those with such or similar allergies… I feel for you! Hope it’s not too hard!!

  126. Karen says

    I just had a fantastic vegetable coconut curry. There are lots of veggie meals that I enjoy, but this vegan dish was really great! It had butternut squash, asparagus, onions, and even some green apple!

  127. Connie says

    It’s too hard to pick one favorite meal!

    I love my lunches of a salad and sandwich every day.

    Tonight’s dinner was pretty darn good too – sauteed tofu, romanesco and sweet potato mash.

  128. Jacqueline says

    I am a Vegetarian so I have a plethora of meatless meals but my Favorite meal is cooking Lentils in the crockpot and adding tomatoes, onions, zucchini, mushrooms, and a sweet potato for the perfect cool weather lunch or dinner-add some crusty bread for dipping and it is DELISH!! 😉

  129. Shani says

    My absolute favourite meat-less meal is chinese-style deep-fried tofu that is then stir fried with mixed vegetables; I’m not sure what the proper name is in Chinese but that is usually the translation and I LOVE it!
    I would also love to own a good vegetarian cookbook 🙂

    Also, does it matter what kind of bread you use for this one?

  130. Joanna says

    My favorite meatless meal is veggie lasagna. With winter being around the corner (if not, already here), it just sounds so good.

  131. Chantal says

    I love your mushroom stroganoff recipe and basically anything with mushrooms! And currently I am loving butternut squash soup.

  132. Jessica A says

    The bread pudding looks gorgeous. I am not a fan of bread pudding but I think I will try to make it. My favourite meatless meal is Japanese dish called avocado donburi. It is simply just mashed avocado with some soy sauce and other simple seasoning, enjoyed with warm rice. It is a humble dish but yummy that my boyfriend who was not a fan of avocado before, asks me to make it time to time.

  133. Annie says

    I’d have to say my favorite meatless meal would be a whole-grain tuna/salmon sandwich with lettuce and tomato. Second only to Creamy Onion Soup with a side of fresh dark multi-grain bread to dunk with and a tossed salad with balsamic vinaigrette.
    When I was younger my favorite dinner was oven-roasted squash (cut open once, baked open-faced) spread with butter and generously seasoned with All-Seasoning and salt (didn’t really need salt bc slreacy had but liked it better anyway); eaten by scooping out the flesh with spoons and saving the savoury crust for last. ( I actually onced used that same dinner in my workbook- I was asked to describe the one meal I’d love to have if I were stranded on an island somewhere, so I chose and described that squash!)
    My favorite breakfast for the longest time was fresh Belgian Waffles served in a stacked heap with butter squares, maple syrup berries and sometimes whipped cream puffs; often chocolate chips. ; )

    • Janica says

      Which the chili* is a meatless home-style chili with black beans, pinto beans, tomatoes, secrete spices, a whole day worth of boiling in the crock-pot and of course corn 😀

  134. Jessica S. @ Floptimism says

    A vegetarian chili with homemade, not-too-sweet cornbread. Or crusty Italian bread.

    Or anything with sweet potatoes, especially if they’re roasted and crispy.

    Or chickpeas.

  135. Jessica says

    My absolutely favourite meatless meal is stir fried quinoa with satay sauce. Just like fried rice, but so much better for you, and you can pack as many veggies as you like into it!!

  136. Lindsey Smith says

    That bread pudding looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it! My favorite meatless meal is Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese. It’s a perfect comfort food for a cold winter night.

  137. Maddy says

    What a great giveaway! I have so many favorite meals, but I think I’ll have to say a roasted autumn veggie pasta with caramelized squash and onions!

  138. Bianca says

    The recipe looks awesome! I’m so bookmarking it. 🙂 As for my favourite meatless meal: a warm banana chocolate chip muffin straight out of the oven. (Ok, so maybe 10 minutes after it came out of the oven.) Pure bliss, and perfect for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner.

  139. Stacy says

    Obsessed already.

    I LOVE anything I can put on the grill. Especially quinoa stuffed peppers, mushrooms, and zucchini! And now I’m hungry.

  140. Jessica F says

    Oh, so many choices! My husband makes an awesome black bean enchilada. They are the best 🙂 This looks so yummy!! I can’t wait to try this, just need my bananas to ripen bit more.

  141. Jessica F says

    My husband makes a wonderful black bean enchilada. Yum!!! I can’t wait to try this, just need to wait for my bananas to ripen a pbit more 🙂

  142. Kira S says

    As a vegan there are countless meatless meals that I enjoy! Currently, my favourite meatless meal is probably a good Thai curry!

  143. Malene says

    I love IsaChandras BLT Mac & Cheeze (from the Post punk kitchen). I could eat it every day… I even got my 10 year old to love it (without the Eggplant Bacon….) and if cake count as a meatless meal I also love the One-Minute Chocolate Cake. Mmmmmmm

  144. Emma says

    Pick me, pick me! Favorite meatless meals = roasting the you-know-what out of sweet potatoes and having them alongside eggs (sorry vegans).

  145. Kathy says

    Every meal I eat is meatless, but if I had to live on one particular meal, I’d have to choose something italian. Pasta, pizza or something like that. Of course, I love chinese also. But the sodium and sugary sauces aren’t good for the body. Always looking for new healthy vegan recipes to try.

  146. Nicole says

    My favorite meatless meal would probably be chili. It is easy to add all sorts of veggies and plenty of beans so you never miss the meat.

  147. Kara says

    My favorite meatless meal is a vegetable stir fry with brown rice! Definitely a staple in my diet! By the way LOVE this recipe, it looks so delicious!! 🙂

  148. Jennifer says

    A favorite? umm. Oatmeal! Peanut butter and jelly! Chocolate (is that a meal???)! Lentil soup! Salad!

    Right. Not so good at picking favorites.

  149. Laura says

    It’s tough to pick a favorite meatless meal! For the winter – probably vegetarian chili and cornbread. For summer – black bean tomato quinoa salad.

  150. Lindsay says

    My kids (currently 3 y/o and 5 y/o) love butternut squash and quinoa chilli. It is packed with flavor and is easy on the stove top or in the slow cooker.

  151. Grace says

    Oh I think my favorite meatless meal is baked butternut squash with pumpkin spice on top. 🙂 A close second would be roasted eggplant with feta and homemade marinara.

  152. Elizabeth says

    Without a doubt falafel. Always delicious super quick and easy to make and you can dress it up or down anyway you like. So versatile and absolutely delicious.

  153. Vanessa says

    My favourite meatless meal is African Pineapple Peanut Stew. I have served it to people who “don’t like vegetarian food” and those who do not like kale, and all have loved it!!!

  154. Courtney S says

    There are so many meatless meals we love…a tie for favorite goes to vegan chili with tons of veggies, all types of beans and chickpeas- no meat substitute needed! AND eggplant parmesan! Making me hungry… 🙂

  155. Jessica says

    My favorite meatless meal, ooh that’s a tough one! I’d have to say there is this roasted winter vegetable jambalaya recipe I found in the Vegetarian Times magazine recently that’s got to be my new favorite meatless recipe! Its got carrots, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and some other stuff and a really yummy blend of spices. Freezes really well too so I can make a ton and have meals for weeks 🙂

  156. Coleen says

    Best meatless dish? “Chicken and dumplings” made with meatless chicken. Served with a salad on the side, and it is a perfect meal.
    Can’t wait for your cookbook!

  157. Holly Buchanan says

    This looks DELICIOUS! I can’t wait to try this.

    As far as my favorite meatless meal…

    That’s a tough question… I have so many! Anything with sweet potato – maybe a stuffed a sweet potato with lentils, tahini dressing and spinach? Random, but it’s delicious! Also, a close second would be lentil sloppy joes! I love your recipe and use it a lot!

  158. Nikita says

    I love trying new meals, but the endless versatilty of a stir-fry makes it something I can make again and again without getting bored. Plus its such a perfect complete meal with loads of veggies, tofu or tempeh, and a whole grain like brown rice or quinoa!

  159. staci says

    Ummm, this looks so yummy and decadent. I know my kids would love it. Once I get the chance I’ll have to make it for my family.
    Ok, I looooovvvveeee breakfast. So, it’s not that hard to say that my favorite meatless meal is a breakfast. I actually have two that I go to often. One is my apple yogurt bowl with cashews, flax meal, vanilla, cinnamon. And my other ‘go to’ breaky is a banana peanut butter oatmeal with chopped dates.

  160. Amanda S. says

    My favorite meat-free meal is angel hair pasta cooked in vegetable broth with chick peas, almond slivers and nutritional yeast. It’s so simple and yet SO delicious! Love it!

  161. Karen says

    Hi Katie… How cute are you?!! I just discovered your blog today while looking for a healthy pumpkin pie recipe! I will certainly be back! And I’ll let you know how that pie turns out!
    My favorite meatless meals are things I throw together with tons of veggies (roasted is good), then some kind of beans or lentils and either brown rice or whole wheat pasta, veggie broth and whatever spices strike my fancy! I collect cookbooks and lately have been pescatarian so this would be a good one for my collection!

  162. Brynn says

    Sooo many to choose from but I gotta go with angel hair pasta with broccoli, garlic, and oil. Love it way to much. Thanks for the recipe!!!!

  163. Mackenzie says

    I love making big, hearty, grain-based salads when I want something meatless. I usually cook some rice or barley, toss in some beans, roasted veggies, and nuts!

  164. Vanessa says

    My favorite meatless meal is an amazing Quinoa Stir Fry with tons of veggies and drizzled with Olive Oil and Himalayan Sea Salt….oh man…it’s only 9:30am and I really want that right now 🙂

  165. Kate says

    Favorite meatless meal is so hard to choose– I only eat meatless meals! So it’s probably a recipe of my mother’s, a pasta with olive oil, roasted pine nuts, raisins, croutons, garlic, and red pepper. Simple but so good.

  166. Bunnaliqua says

    I love tacos! I use textured soy protein instead of ground meat. Lots of black beans and corn, mushrooms, peppers, onions and garlic. In a crunchy shell, soft shell or a lettuce wrap!

    I also really like Indian curried chickpeas or lentils.

  167. janice esposito says

    I love oyster mushrooms so tonight i fried up a batch with olive oil and a little earth balance. Whole Foods gave me almost a pound free because they rung them up wrong.Yay- I was excited about that. I made some steamed brocolli and sauteed it in a little tamari and sesame oil and made a delicious sweet potatoe, black bean, quinoa patti with a cashew chipolte sauce.

  168. Kristin says

    my favorite meatless meal? that is a tough one! maple buffalo seitan with sweet potato fries or garlic roasted brussel sprouts and lentil loaf.

  169. Ruth says

    I’ve got three kids and we’re on a student budget, so we eat a lot of meatless meals 🙂 One of my current favorites is black bean-jalapeno soup with corn bread. Mmmm.

  170. Heather says

    Homemade chili from the crockpot with corn, onions, and different kinds of beans… The best to come home to on a cold day when your house smells like delicious chili. 🙂

  171. Theresa says

    Does ice cream count? 😉
    If not, then creamy lentil and sweet potato soup….it has coconut milk in it, sweet potatoes, cabbage…oh, it is such a treat with some homemade honey wheat bread!

  172. Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen says

    My favorite meatless meal is chocolate of course. 😉 Um but let’s see…I love spaghetti squash with cheese and veggies. Also anything with tofu is good too!

  173. Nicole D says

    I love the roasted sweet potato corn chowder from all, it tastes so wonderful you wouldn’t ever know it is so healthy and vegetarian!

  174. Amanda H says

    I’m a HUGE lover of an Indian lentil dish called Dal. No better comfort food I can think of…reminds me of my Nana – she used to make it for us all the time growing up.

  175. Emily says

    We eat mostly meatless and there are lots of good ones, but our favorite is risotto because it’s so flexible – what ever vegetables we have, some rice, and some broth. I’ve even added quinoa and lentils in with the rice. et voila! Then then next day the leftovers become stuffed peppers. 😀

  176. Jediblink says

    Lumpia…sautéed vegetables, fresh lettuce, cilantro with tofu, all wrapped in a wrapper similar to a crepe! Topped with fresh crushed garlic and and a sweet sauce. Yummmm!

  177. Cora says

    That’s easy…….whatever is closest at hand when I’m hungry…although I do have a soft spot for my Greek Tomato Patties, my Chickpea Burgers with Tahini Sauce or for anything made with Okara.

  178. Karen Jung says

    It is so hard to chose my all time favourite meatless meal but it would probably any type of curry. I love spicy food!

  179. Gi says

    chickpeas and veggies hamburger! I boil or stir fry all the ingredients, blend them, shape the result into manageable patties and (after covering them in breadcrumbs) put them in the oven and bake them for 10 minutes ca. :)! Easy to make and you can prepare them in advance, freeze them, and put one in the microwave that nights when you don’t feel like cooking. 🙂

  180. Madeleine says

    I could never pick just one favorite meal but I’m currently obsessed with butternut squash- roasted, in ravioli, soup, anything!

  181. Elisabetta says

    So what is my favorite meal? Because they’re all meatless 🙂 It’s very hard to choose one but I’ll say one of the many: pizza! Vegan of course.

  182. REBECA says

    Just about anything I have made from your website has been very satisfying and guilt-free because its good for me…but one on top of the list was the tamale pies. I made them in little tins and froze them so I could bring them to work for lunch.

  183. Kelly says

    Vegetarian Moussaka served with warm pita and a crunchy salad. Traditional moussaka is a Greek eggplant and meat lasagna with a thick cheesy bechamel sauce on top. I like my version with lots of grilled eggplant, zucchini, red peppers and a lentil/walnut mixture that replaces the meat.

  184. Ukrainian girl says

    My favorite vegetarian comfort food is potato and sauerkraut perogies with sour cream and fried onions. Especially homemade ones!

  185. Heidi says

    I really love to use up my veggies in an easy stir fry with tofu. It’s never the same thing twice, but it’s always tasty!

    • Unofficial CCK Helper says

      Some people really like Daiya. But I like Follow Your Heart, it shreds better. Or Google for a good vegan cheese recipe. I think there is even a cookbook called Artisan Vegan Cheese. Good luck!

  186. Laura says

    I might be too late, but I’ll answer the question anyway. I LOVE anything with beans. Like, I just had a spicy vegetarian chili last night and it was SO good. Just black beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, chickpeas, rice, corn, and peppers. (Then whatever was in the sauce)

    Otherwise I really really love fruit. Any and all fruit.

    P.S., I totally don’t like bread pudding, but this actually looks really awesome, so I think I’ll add this to my list of recipes to try!

  187. eva says

    I made this last week using a less bread in a square pan and it came out wonderful! one of your best recipes in my opinion 🙂 There are 3 people in my house and we finished it in less than 5 days. I will definitely make this again and experiment with different toppings!

  188. Sarah says

    I’ve had this recipe saved for a while, and finally gave it a shot. It tastes much like a mushy banana bread. I think next time I will add melted earth balance and a couple eggs to give it more of a bread pudding flavor. Still tasty, though! I’m a huge fan of nutmeg. 🙂

  189. Elsie Ardry says

    My favorite meatless meal is Mushroom Stroganoff made with Soy Burger Crumbles. It is rich and savory over noodles or whatever pasta I have on hand. Wonderful!

  190. Katie B says

    Oatmeal all the way!!!
    I could literally eat nothing but oatmeal for days… Just this morning I had a big bowl, cinnamon-flavored with a nice splash of milk, really hot and creamy… Makes me hungry just thinking about it! =)
    Or lentils/split pea soup. I really like warm comfort foods.

  191. Jess says

    Without a doubt, my favorite meatless meal is jackfruit barbecue with skillet cornbread, followed by some chocolate chip blondies (made with chickpeas) for dessert

  192. CutePi314 says

    Just a quick clarification, if you would. In the description of the cookbook you adapted this from, it says the recipes are “free of refined sugars.” But the recipe itself has 1/4 cup. Am I correct to assume this is based on “sucanat” and not on white table sugar? I’m trying to slowly wean myself off sugars and wanted to start with cutting out white refined sugar and go from there. Not sure what sucanat is. Also, what about the chocolate chips used in the recipe? Are they a special kind you use that don’t have sugar? Or did you completely adapt the recipe into something pretty new? Confused. :/ Thanks!!
