COLLEGE STUDENTS NOW LIVING OFF-CAMPUS AND LOOKING FOR A TERRIFIC COOKBOOK – TRY VEGAN MEALS FOR 1 OR 2

Posted on August 26, 2014 by Nina Casalena, The VRG Blog Editor


Vegan Meals for One or Two, by Chef Nancy Berkoff, is a terrific cookbook for college students living on their own. Start your day off with Breakfast Potato Burritos or Macadamia Nut Pancakes. Try one pot wonders including Kitchen Sink Minestrone, Asian Noodle Bowl, or Cauliflower Curry. Looking for some Grab-and-Go items, you may want to prepare Speedy Tostadas or Baked Beans Quesadillas. And if you have the time and want to prepare a more gourmet meal, try Almost Thai Spicy Peanut Pasta, Potato Tacos, or Quick Tofu Stroganoff. You’ll also find creative hot and cold beverages, and of course snacks and desserts.

Here’s one recipe from this cookbook:

Salsa Black Bean Salad

(Makes 2 servings)

1 cup cooked black beans (if canned, drain and rinse)
1/2 fresh orange, peeled and chopped
1/8 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup prepared salsa
1 Tablespoon lemon or lime juice
1 minced garlic clove or a teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Shredded lettuce, as desired
Tortilla chips or shredded tortillas, as desired

Mix beans, orange, onion, salsa, juice, garlic, cumin, and pepper flakes together in a medium bowl. Chill for at least 1 hour. Serve over lettuce and garnish with chips.
