Vegtastic!

A friend recently introduced me to VegWeb.com, a site that has some fantastic veggie recipes.

I can personally vouch for the tasty vegan mac & cheese recipe, which we enjoyed last Saturday: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=8295.0

As with all vegetarian- or vegan-friendly recipes, they are their own thing, so some folks will love ’em and others will still miss or prefer the “original” versions.

Here’s my quick recipe for a fully loaded (vegetarian version) potato:

Potatoes: I washed a couple of potatoes, poked holes in them with a fork, put them in a medium bowl half filled with water, and then used the “Baked Potato” function on my microwave.

Topping: In a fry pan, I sauteed a chopped onion in some olive oil and then added a can of drained (and rinsed) black beans along with a can of drained “Mexican style” tomatoes (diced tomatoes with peppers mixed in).  Other veggies like corn can be a nice addition.  As for seasoning, it’s your choice.  I happened to go with Weber’s New Orleans blend.

Once everything was cooked, I added some plain yogurt on top and ended up with this:

Not the most prettiest of dishes, but yummy enough to finish it off:

Enjoy! 🙂
