As promised in the introduction to "Easy Vegan Recipes" – here are my first quick healthy recipes.
They're entirely plant-based.
My wife and I, as well as many of our friends (vegan and non-vegan alike), enjoy preparing – and eating – all the delicious foods you'll find here.
We hope you too will enjoy these quick healthy recipes.

Spaghetti Squash & Baby Bella Mushrooms
Slice the squash in half lengthwise.
Scoop out seeds.
Brush lightly with oil - coconut or EVOO.
Sprinkle on a little Himalayan salt, pepper, rosemary, garlic powder, chopped ginger.
Put on cookie sheet and bake at 375 until tender, about an hour.
Wash, slice and saute baby bella mushrooms. Add 1 Tsp teriyaki sauce at the end.
Use a fork to scrape out "spaghetti" noodles. Leave in squash shell (see picture) or serve on a plate. Top with mushrooms.
Optional: Slice onion, toss with a little olive oil, scatter around the cookie sheet and bake along with the squash.
The picture shows some added sugar peas (uncooked) on the plate.
