Beanland Cookbook v1.2

I’ve updated the links at the bottom of my original cookbook post to reflect the new version.

I’ve added a bunch of new recipes. I still hope to blog about many of them at some point, with tantalizing photos, tips, etc. but this cookbook update is long overdue.



Pioneer Woman Asian Noodle Salad – So delicious and great for a crowd


Banana Ginger Pancakes
Cornmeal Flapjacks – nothing fancy here but a nice change. We slather these with homemade apple butter.
Added Whole Wheat Bread in a Stand Mixer, which makes 2 big loafs, along with instructions for a Bread Spider, Cinnamon Raisin, and Herbed Breadsticks

Whole Wheat Tortillas – at last! This recipe is just what I have been wishing and waiting and hoping for.


Apple Celeriac Soup – Just discovered in our awesome (but a bit intimidating) In Season cookbook by Sarah Raven.
Spiced Parsnip Soup
Kale and Orzo Soup

Tortilla Soup with Avocado Corn Salsa – A bit fancy because of the roasted corn salsa on top. This is from our newest cookbook acquisition, A Beautiful Bowl of Soup
Minestrone Soup – from the same book


Pasta with Lentils and Kale – So straightforward, healthy and delicious. This is a go-to recipe for me now.
Mushroom Stroganoff with Sour Cream substitute
Lasagne with Marinara and Spinach – I had this in the index before but I went ahead and typed up the recipe. It’s a keeper, mainly because the cashew ricotta is killer and it gets a lot of greens into my kids!

More Mains

Butternut Coconut Rice – a bit decadent with the coconut but such a satisfying, different way to eat squash! From the fabulous and highly-recommended Appetite for Reduction
Baked Falafel – Left as a comment on this blog and delicious!
Cosmic Cashew Kale – This earned a regular spot in our meal lineup!

Magic Lentils – Easy easy in the pressure cooker.
Jeweled Couscous
Lentil and Rice Burritos


Sweet Potato Tzimmes – Not new, but I added the full recipe to save me from pulling Veganomicon off the shelf all the time


Chia Pudding– Healthy and a delicious treat (though you can tell it’s healthy…)
Whole Food Apple Butter – This is one of those maddening “to taste” recipes, but I love that I just threw dates in my crockpot with apples and it turned out to be so delicious without any added sugar.
Raw Granola – This is involved and is best made in a dehydrator but it’s oil-free, fruit-sweetened and a huge hit at our house. I try and keep some stashed in the freezer now
Marinara Sauce


– Tweaked my “Perfect Pancakes” recipe to be 1 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt and included a tablespoon of oil. I hate to admit it, but having some in there makes a big difference!
– Changed Pad Thai recipe to 1 tsp of Chinese hot sauce (not TBS!)


Udon with Shiitake Mushrooms and Kale in Miso Broth Veganomicon pg. 201
Bhutanese Pineapple Rice (Appetite for Reduction pg. 72) and Red Thai Tofu (AR pg. 149)

Again, the updated files are at the bottom of my original cookbook post. Enjoy!
