Black Bean Soup
When I became a vegetarian in the 1980s, Moosewood cookbooks were the go to resources for great vegetarian cuisine. Now as a vegan, I find the Moosewood cookbooks still relevant. They do include non-vegan recipes but there are plenty of vegan ones.
One of my favorite recipes, black bean soup, is from Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home. I served it with guacamole and baked blue corn chips. The guacamole is another tasty test recipe from the Urban Vegan.

Summer Challenge: Be Better Consumers!
Join me this summer in my efforts to be a better consumer:
Buy more locally grown food. Buy more organic items. Avoid genetically modified food. Prepare more responsible and healthy dishes. Get more involved in the food movement.
If you are a vegan, you are already making many good choices everyday about your food but there is so much more we all could be doing. Being a vegan doesn't necessarily mean we are doing all we can to be the most responsible and healthy eaters. We can improve ourselves and encourage the omnivores around us to do the same!
I've been a vegan for 7 years along with my sister, who is a gluten free vegan. I was a vegetarian for 18 years before veganism. I live in Los Angeles with an omnivore in a home full of rescued animals (cats, turtles and a frog).
