This recipe was originally submitted by TURBODILLO. I can't wait to make it, but will saute in water or vegetable broth to eliminate the oil.

Veggie-Packed Tomato Sauce
Very Good 4.0/5
(29 ratings)

What? Canned tomatoes in a tomato sauce? Yes, that's right. Garden tomatoes are only available for a short time, but crushed canned tomatoes are on shelves year-round and packed with flavor.

Technically, this isn't hummus, because there's no tahini in it, but it's a nice smooth spread/dip, and makes a good sandwich, wrap, or cracker topping. I like it with Greek flatbread.

I used half the quantities of the vinegar and sugar in the nutritional info, because half of it tends to stay behind in the bowl. If you tend to like to drink the liquid or something, double those for nutritional info.

The dressing tastes a little better with salt in it (as much as a tablespoon), but I'm cutting down on sodium, so I left it out, and it was fine.

This is just basic vegetable soup. It's amenable to whatever veggies you happen to have around, and is great for using up leftover vegetables.

I did the nutrition calculation for 1 cup of soup; eat as much as you want. :-)

Most people will, I think, want extra salt in this, but I like the flavor, and I'm trying to cut down on sodium.

My favorite dairy-free, protein-rich sauce! I use it for nachos, macaroni and "cheese", anything that requires a cheesy sauce. Don't let the yeast part daunt you -- it tastes awesome!

Pseudo-Sophisticated French Lentil Soup
Very Good 4.3/5
(15 ratings)

I call this soup pseudo-sophisticated because of how gourmet it tastes, even though it is one of the easiest things to make! I got this recipe off of www.vegweb.com and I absolutely love it. I have made some modifications but its basically the same. This soup has AMAZING fiber and protein values.

Vegan Lentil, Rice and Tofu Loaf (1950s Meatl Loaf brought to 2010s)
Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

Reminiscent of traditional Meat Loaf but without all the meat, dairy, eggs, or badness. This version is low on calories and fat, reasonable in sodium and carbs, and high in delicious.

Sometimes i'll have 2 servings and it's still quite reasonable. Either way I like it with peas. Mmm.

Clean Eating Mexican Skillet
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

A one dish dinner, that you can prepare in 30 minutes start to finish if you are fast at chopping. Avocado and cilantro provide the inspiration. You can substitute other veggies as desired. In the "most nutrients for the fewest calories" challenge this is a winner.
