Seitan Sausages (Vegan)

This is a basic framework recipe for seitan sausages (a la Julie Hasson) for the purpose of tracking calories. There are also various spices added, depending on the flavor, but they have a minimal impact on the macro nutrient information.

These freeze really well and thaw quickly, so make a whole batch, or several, and stash in your freezer for quick meals and snacks.

Again, this is a base recipe. You must add spices to flavor them, please don't make this as-is or you will be disappointed!

Tropical Green Smoothie

This works best in a high powered blender such as BlendTec (what I use). Results will vary if using a "regular" blender.
This recipes is vegan, soy-free, and raw.

Rich Tomato Lentil Soup

Serves 2 as a main course, 4 as part of a meal. Nutritional information is for 2 servings. I use low sodium broth, but I think the nutritional information uses regular broth which is why the sodium content is so high.

Lowfat Balsamic Vinaigrette

This is super easy and delicious. It has about half the calories and fat of traditional vinaigrette. Each serving is 2 tablespoons.

Unconventional Colcannon

This is loosely based on traditional colcannon, but I made it lower in fat, higher in protein, and designed it to be more of a casserole so it is an all-in-one meal. To make it vegan substitute 1/2 cup silken tofu for the eggs and vegan cheese for the cheddar.
This was a little on the dry side so if you want it more moist you can add 1//2 cup of milk or yogurt of your choice.

Chickpea, Kale & Butternut Squash Curry Soup

This is an easy and delicious one pot meal. The number of servings seems rather weird, but that is how many 2 cup servings we got. I see that the sodium value is pretty high. There is no way to note it when entering nutrition information, but you rinse the chickpeas which lowers the sodium considerably. Of course you can also reduce the amount of salt you add to lower it even further! If you have left over butternut squash that is already cooked it cuts down the recipe time to less than 30 minutes, just skip the first step and proceed with recipe. Enjoy!

Easy Enchilada Stir-Fry

A very filling and delicious meal. I serve this over sauteed greens, like kale or chard but it also is great all by itself, or as the filling for actual enchiladas.

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

Hearty, fluffy pancakes with a little chew.
