VEGAN EATS: summer casserole and salad

Nana’s Tomato and Summer Squash Casserole

my grandmother used to make this for me. instead of Parmesan cheese, I put nutritional yeast on top. baked at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. layered summer squash and tomato slices. put some Earth Balance margarine and nutritional yeast on top. covered with tin foil and baked in oven.

Chickpea/ Couscous/ Fresh Veggies Salad

super easy and yummy. cook couscous. add grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped cucumber and chickpeas. I add poppy dressing but any dressing works.
