Recipes I've Shared:

Rice Fried Vegetables

In this vegetable fried rice reversal, the vegetables are dominant and the rice is secondary. Feel free to substitute, add, or augment the vegetables -- just don't subtract. This recipe was originally from Vegetarian Times, but I tinkered with it to make it lighter. You can find the original on their website.

Strawberries and lemon curd in fillo shells

A spirited summer dessert, sweet and tangy with a rich note of dark chocolate.

Pho with Shrimp

The national soup of Vietnam is a bowl of rice noodles, fresh herbs, and bean sprouts swimming in a fragrant broth. Recipe adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine.

Mushroom and Lemon Couscous

A quick and easy side dish with a slightly exotic flavor.

Cod Fillet with Roasted Vegetable Ragout

A tasty fish dish for the whole family. Roasting the fish on top of the vegetables infuses them with great flavor, but very little fat.

Pasta Soup with Swiss Chard and Goat Cheese

Make this light, versatile spring or summer pasta dish with any mixture of greens. Quicker version of a recipe from Whole Foods' magazine.


Very Good (2 ratings)
Royal Icing

A simple white icing for decorating cookies and cakes. Colors well.

Sugar Snap Pea Saute with Chicken Breasts and Fresh Herbs

Pan-seared chicken offers plenty of protein and snap peas add fiber. Recipe from Health magazine.

Lemon Sponge Fingers

Tangy, light sponge fingers are perfect to serve as an accompaniment to a light dessert, or with coffee.


Variation: To make Spice Fingers, omit the lemon rind and fold in 1 tsp mixed spice with the flour.

Eggplant Parmesan Naturale

A lighter, fresher take on the traditional recipe. From the book "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone." It's well worth the time and effort it takes to prepare. If you're in a hurry, though, you can forgo step 2, buy pre-shredded Parmesan, and opt to heat the tomato sauce in the microwave.

Apple Oatmeal Muffins

A yummy and nutritious muffin rich in calcium from soy milk and good fats from walnuts and nutritious oil. Recipe adapted from wholistic health counselor, Janet Kaye.

Cornmeal Pizza with Spinach and Capers

Adapted from Whole Foods' magazine, this is easily the freshest, tastiest pizza I've ever had.
