Herb Roasted Vegetables
serves 4-6

8 small red potatoes
12 small zucchini & 12 small carrots
1 bunch small beets
3-4 small red onions
1/2 lb. button mushrooms
2 red bell peppers
1/4 cup each: olive oil, tamari, balsamic vinegar, sweetener
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
3 Tbsp. fresh herbs, chopped

1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Scrub potatoes, zucchini, carrots and beets. Peel the onions and leave whole. Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp towel. Core and seed the bell peppers and cut into strips. Place all the vegetables together in a large mixing bowl.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients to make a topping.
3. Pour topping over the vegetables. Stir to coat evenly. Pour vegetables into a roasting pan and roast until they become tender, (about an hour) turning them over and brushing on more topping from the roasting pan, every 15 minutes.
4. Serve immediately.

one word: yum! a note to those who want to try the recipes not to be intimidated in the kitchen, having confidance in your own cooking skills is half the battle (if not more)!

Mari... what?! Thanksgiving is a holiday that revolves around the pilgrims, not columbus... he's got his own day in october, while we celebrate thanksgiving in november... I hear some countries have both of these on the same day, but not in america, we give our plunderers seperate holidays.

Not Thanksgiving.............Holiday. I can't celebrate a killer such as Columbus. We can't move on until people deal with reality, We are living a lie Columbus was no better than other criminals.

Bread is usually not vegan. Most bread contains some sort of ingredient (even if it is a trace ingredient) that is not vegan.

However, there are many breads which *are* vegan. You can find some of them here:
