Hey, I have a bit of a down friend right now, anyone have any good vegan recipes for comfort food? I plan to give her a big thing of vegan goodness on Monday to lift her spirits a bit... The problem is, I'm VERY new to veganism, so I don't have any good recipes yet!

the cookbook Vegan Comfort food is an excellent cookbook to buy.

1) curried butternut squash was awesome! http://www.delish.com/recipefinder/c...lick=recipe_sr
2)African Chickpea and spinach soup http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipes/10117
3) carmelized butternut sqash http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/i...ipe/index.html (substitute Earth Balance for the butter)

I love squashes by the way, and use them frequently, but any of these would fit your bill, just fine!

Vegan cupcakes.
Anything fried. I usually bake falafel, but I love it fried.
Heather, that recipe sounds so amazing simple and good! Thanks!

It's not really simple to make, but it's worth the time, energy, and dirty bowls/pots If you have a helper, that's even better.

Heather, I love how you wrote that recipe! Very clear. I've got a way with just scanning recipes and doing my own thing-which isn't always good. I have some Imagine Not chicken broth right now.I'll try it with just making dumpling with flour and soymilk/vinegar.

Hey Kaitlinann- is your friend also vegan?

What about banana or other fruity bread or muffins? Breakfast foods seem especially comforting to me for some reason.

I would love some more recipes, danakscully64. The more the merrier! Now it's two friends, actually, that are having a bad weekend...sigh.

Silva, no, she isn't, so I had to check to make sure she was okay with vegan food.

I wish I could say that I wrote it, but I didn't. It's all Isa and Terry

I'll add some more recipes in a bit. I've been cleaning the house for 4 hours, if I continue to sit, I won't finish

How long do you think these will last outside the refrigerator?

Before cooking or after? How long were you thinking?

Either one, whichever will make the food last from about seven to 3:30, maybe four?

I'm not the best at determining these things... do you have some kind of cooler or ice packs that can keep it cool? I would bake it after if you were going to have it out for a while. It's iffy though.

Hmm. Okay, I think I'll have something that might work! I'm bringing these to my school, but I think I know a teacher with a refrigerator, so if I just prepare these dishes but don't cook them and keep them cool they should last, right?

it's not safe to keep any food food that has been cooked or needs to be kept cool, out longer than the recommended 2 hours, even without meat in them. Please do try to find a refrigerator. No one needs food poisoning, even with your best intentions! (esp in AZ, and out ALL day) My raspberries starting changing even with sitting out on the counter after a couple of hours....wasn't a pretty site at all!.
