  • Spaghetti Squash with Chickpeas and Kale, added 21 hours ago
    A delicious and nutritious "pasta" dinner.
  • Tofu Migas Scramble, added 2 weeks ago
    "Migas" are crumbs and are used in traditional scrambles in Spain, Portugal and Mexico. Breadcrumbs are used in Spain and toasted, broken tortillas in Mexico. This vegan version uses the convenience of tortilla chips but you could just toast some tortillas if you prefer. It's a quick, easy and tasty supper!
  • Mashed Grains and Cauliflower, added 3 months ago
    My husband dislikes cauliflower but he couldn't recognize it in this dish and ate it with gusto! We topped it with mushroom sauce and found it quite wonderful that way.
  • Eve's Favorite Layered Casserole, added 4 months ago
    A very flavorful layered casserole featuring beans and tortillas layered with ricotta and yams.

The Five Contemplations

Our Summer 2016 Potluck — Portland, Oregon, USA

The Contemplations are spoken before meals in the Order of Interbeing:

  • This food is a gift of the earth, the sky, numerous living beings, and much hard and loving work.
  • May we eat with mindfulness and gratitude so as to be worthy to receive this food.
  • May we recognize and transform unwholesome mental formations, especially our greed and learn to eat with moderation.
  • May we keep our compassion alive by eating in such a way that reduces the suffering of living beings, stops contributing to climate change, and heals and preserves our precious planet.
  • We accept this food so that we may nurture our brotherhood and sisterhood, build our sangha [community], and nourish our ideal of serving all living beings.

These principles guide our mission on this website: to facilitate cooking and eating with mindfulness in such a way that we help to reduce the suffering of living beings, preserve our planet, and reverse the process of global warming.
