Feta Cheese and Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Roasted red peppers are featured in this intriguing pureed soup with onion, celery, red wine and mint. This is a very hearty soup, I recommend serving 6 to 8 ounces as an appetizer. Very good garnished with crispy bacon bits and mint.

Fire Roasted Vegetarian Gumbo

The smokiness from the paprika, roasted peppers, and tomatoes takes the place of andouille sausage in this vegetarian gumbo. With a lot of spice and flavor, this gumbo is a great way to warm up on a cold winter’s night.

Tofu Peanut Stir-Fry

This tofu has a slightly crunchy exterior while the inside is nice and soft. I used to make my stir-fry with chicken or beef, but my husband won’t have it any other way than tofu now! And my 2 year old loves it! It is a delicious, easy, quick, and inexpensive meal.Serve with Asian noodles or with steamed rice.

Artichokes Stuffed with Arugula Pesto

Whole steamed artichokes have a natural elegance, but leaf-dipping can get messy. We’ve solved the problem by filling artichokes with a thick arugula pesto, which turns the de-choked centers into individual dipping bowls.
