Aunt Cia's Garden of Recipes

"Be the change you wish to see in the world" has been my motto the past few years as I've observed SAD eating and the opposite of that style...which has helped many, many people with healing and weightloss. I hope my changed lifestyle can be a positive influence in the lives of those I meet.

I made my own dressing with honey, dijon mustard, white wine vinegar and soy sauce. I used Bragg's Liquid Aminos, which tastes like soy sauce but is so low in sodium. It is made from fermented soy beans.

Warm, nutty and sweet with just a hint of saltiness. Gorgeous with milk or over homemade yogurt.

Barley Lentil Mushroom Soup
Very Good 4.5/5
(8 ratings)

There is nothing more satisfying than a warm hearty and delicious soup when it's cold outside. This soup is versatile (add whatever veggies you have lying around), easy and nutritious. Adding both barley and lentils makes this more nutritionally complete for the veggies out there, but feel free to just use one or the other if you'd prefer. And the servings are large! If you're having this on the side, you'll get a lot more servings than mentioned! (also it freezes really well too! so make a batch and freeze in single-serve tupperware for easy lunches/dinners!)

Best Vegan Mexican Pinto Beans Ever  ( Slow Cooker)
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

A flavor powerhouse of protien!! Cooked with no meat or meat by products. Easy to prepare by putting it all in a crock pot.

Serve with whole wheat tortillas and a home made Pico De Gallo and it is a surefire hit for the whole family.

Also the left overs are really good to mash up the next day with some lime juice and serve with tortilla chips!

These are AMAZING! Fluffy and full of flavour from the bananas. And my non-vegan husband LOVES them too.

Yummy spread using sprouted lentils... this is a rawfoods recipe and it also is great if you sprouted too many lentils like I did!

A simple, warming and hearty soup that's fast to prepare. Sodium appears to be high but that depends on your chosen broth and if you drain and RINSE the beans the sodium will be much lower than reported here.
