Recipes I've Shared:

Creamy Roasted Garlic & Cilantro Dressing

A low-fat (0.2g), low-calorie (19.2), creamy dressing - you just might never buy bottled dressing again!

Basic Pita Bread

Great as a side dish or the centerpiece of any number of sandwich recipes.

Vegan Loaf

If you like Falafel, you'll love this loaf. Great by itself, or stuffed into pita bread with a little red onion and yogurt.

Chicken Caesar Sandwwiches

Served in whole-grain, pita pockets, marinate these the night before for a quick, nutritious lunch the next day.

Smoky Faux Beef Stroganoff

Healthy, easy and delicious, this version of "Beef" Stroganoff is made with my vegetarian faux ground beef recipe (see ingredients for link) and is all done in one pan.

Smoky Faux Ground Beef

Using TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) granules, a good quality vegetable bouillon and smoked paprika, this is a great substitute for ground beef.

Taco Seasoning

Most Taco Seasoning Recipes Tend to Amount to Only Enough Seasoning for 1 Use. This Recipe Makes Enough Seasoning for a Full 9 Pounds of Meat!

Slow Cooker Red Chile Pork with Potatoes (6 oz ea)

This is a favorite in Burritos and Rolled Tacos ("Taquitos") in the Southwest. May also be spread on tostadas, used in tacos, etc.

Taco Sauce

Similar to fast food chains' taco sauce, this is delicious, cheap and healthy fare.

Mock Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Several substitutions here, such as fresh acorn squash, skim milk and Chinese 5 spice - coupled with the absence of flour and egg - make this a healthy, creamy desert surprisingly easy to make.

Super-Charged Fruit Cocktail

High in potassium, vitamin c and other anti-oxidants, this no sugar-added fruit cocktail is not only good for you but tastes great!

Creamy Garlic-Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower

This is a nice alternative to mashed potatoes.

Vegan Italian-Style Sausage

TVP (textured vegetable protein) takes the place of meat in this spicy substitute. It can be purchased prepackaged (such as Bob's Red Mill brand) or found in bulk food sections of many stores.

Spicy Garden Pasta Sauce

Popular in Rome are red chiles, the base for Arrabbiata Sauce, which are featured in this spicy, chunky sauce. Yields 4 cups total.

Low-Fat Yogurt & Fruit Freezer Pops

Great, healthy frozen treat. This recipe uses a rack of 8 50 ml pop freezer pop forms.

Red Beans & Rice with Seitan

Seitan adds an extra depth of flavor to this Southern favorite.

Cheese Stuffed Mexican Grey Squash

This makes a delicious and healthy entree for two.

Spanish Rice with Peas & Almonds

An enhanced twist on the classic. This recipe uses my Fresh Salsa recipe, but a variety of salsas can be used, including a good Salsa Verde (Green Chile Salsa).

Fresh Salsa

Homemade salsa is so much better than anything out of a jar and extremely easy to make. This recipe is for a salsa with medium heat.

Smoky Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

The addition of smoked tofu and a little liquid smoke gives this recipe a classic taste.

No Sugar Added Spicy BBQ Sauce

Great for making ranch style beans, BBQ chicken, and pulled pork, this easy to make BBQ sauce makes use of your slow cooker. Let it reduce overnight for a rich, spicy (and nutrient rich!) sauce.

Spicy Black Bean Burgers

These Smoky Vegetarian (but not vegan) Bean Burgers are a delicious way to get your fiber and protein!
