Chickpea Tomato Minestrone. I absolutely adored this soup. Hearty yet not heavy, savory yet sweet from the tomatoes, and so many perfect textural elements. My cooking times were a little longer than those suggested in the recipe but it still came together beautifully in under an hour.
Swiss Chard Pesto - A great way to use up greens that can easily wilt in your fridge forgotten. This pest is so flavorful and creamy! A delicious spread for pasta, veggies, bread, or soups! | louloubiscuit.com
Moroccan Butternut Squash, Chickpea and Quinoa Tagine
another recipe from The Vegan Cook's Bible, Moroccan chickpea tagine. you don't need a tagine to make it don't worry. I also used black-eyed peas instead of chickpeas. again, perfect cheap college student meal; super cheap, recipe yield is huge, and it freezes well!
