Hearty Macaroni Dinner (adapted from Debra Wasserman's Simply Vegan) 

This recipe is great because it doesn't require any ingredients you can't get at a regular grocery store. Even meat eaters like this one, and it's very hearty. 

2 cups elbow macaroni 
4 cups water 
1 onion, chopped 
2 tablespoons oil 
3 cups tomato juice 
4 teaspoons chili powder 
salt and pepper to taste 
10-ounce box frozen corn 
19-ounce can kidney beans, drained (or 2 cups cooked kidney beans) 
1-2 tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional, but gives a great flavor) 

Cook pasta in water until tender. Drain. Sauté onion in oil in a large pot. Add remaining ingredients, as well as cooked pasta. Simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve hot.

4-6 servings
