This is good as a side dish (1/2 cup serving) or served as a main course (1 cup serving) over brown rice.

Vegetarian Paella with Chorzo 'Sausages'

I found this base recipe on "Everyday Dish TV" then adjusted it to my taste by adding vegan Chorzo or Italian sausage and more spice. This recipe makes a ton and is good for pot luck or shared dinners.

Low Fat Date Bran Muffins

Use the mix for Bob's Old Mill Date Bran Muffins.
Replace the oil, and egg with applesauce and ener-g egg replacer.

Reduces the fat from 6 grams per muffin to .5 grams per muffin, 0 cholesterol, I am not sure of the carb numbers, because the Bob's package does not show 2 numbers for mix and prepared muffins on %.

Vegan Whole Wheat Hamburger (or Hotdog) Buns

I found a great recipe for Hamburger Buns that I altered to make vegan. They turned out soft and Delicious!

Mexican Meatball Sandwich

I was at Trader Joe's and saw these meatless meatballs and thought. Meatball Sub! I made them with a Mexican flavor because I wanted to use salsa and and the Daiya Cheddar "Cheese" I had in my fridge.


This recipe looks high in sodium but I always rinse the beans which lowers the sodium content. To reduce the sodium significantly, buy salt free beans or soak your beans from dried.

Sweet Potato Vegetable Curry

This is a delicious recipe. Not very Spicy. The sweet potatoes and eggplant add a nice sweetness to it. If you like it hotter, add more curry powder and 1/2 t of cayenne at the end to taste.

NOTE: The original recipe calls for coconut milk. I don't use it because it disagrees with my husband. A good lower fat alternative is rice or almond milk and 1 T coconut extract.

Aladdin's Hummus

Recipe from my fav Lebanese Restaurant

Vegetable/Tofu Stir Fry with A Spicy Teriyaki Sauce

This is a vegetable stir fry for one person. When I make this for my family, I cut up all kinds of fresh veggies and stir fry each person's plate individually. That way each person gets to grab the veggies they like the most and leave off something they don't care for. This also helps the veggies stay crisp cooked. When I do a large family sized stir fry some of the veggies overcook and get soggy. I hate that so now I do it this way.

I usually make 2 stir fry sauces so folks get to choose that too.

The recipe for the Teriyaki Sauce with a red Thai chili sauce in the ingredients is an amount for 1 person's stir fry. I will include amounts for a family at the end of the cooking instructions.

**Dry Tofu is included in this recipe. It is found in most Natural food stores or Chinese Markets. It makes stir fries so much easier because you don't have to marinate or pre-cook it. (It is sometimes called Smoked Tofu. I have used both.)

Shepherd's Pie (low fat and vegan)

Traditional Shepherd's Pie is that delicious beef, vegetable and gravy casserole with the Mashed Potatoes on Top. Who knew that it would taste just as good without the beef? It really does and it is good for you too.

Fall Veggie Chili

A great combination of chili and fall veggies makes a delicious healthy vegan meal.

I always rinse the canned beans to lower the sodium. I think the sodium count here on Spark does not take that into account. (Lately I use dried beans for all of my recipes to take care of that problem.) If you use dried beans make sure you soak them overnight and cook them before you make this recipe.

You can really use any fall firm fall veggie you would like. I sometimes use a combination of sweet and white potatoes. Rutabaga and turnips would be great too. As would red and green peppers.

Red Lentil/tomato Soup

I ate at a wonderful Egyptian Restaurant in Chicago and looked for a recipe online. I found one and changed it up to reduce the fat but keep the wonderful taste. This can be as spicy as you like. I like it medium hot so I add just 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne. You may add more or add red pepper flakes to add more 'hot'.

Vegan Poor Man's Cake

When I was growing up my Grandma would make Poor Man's Cake. Her recipe included shortening. I adjusted the recipe using Earth Balance to make it vegan.
This is not a healthy recipe. I make it for a special occasions.

Low fat carrot cake (From Fatfreevegan.com)

I found this recipe on my favorite recipe site, fatfreevegan.com. It is a moist and delicious cake. You can eat it plain or make a vegan cream cheese icing.

This can be lower fat if you leave out the coconut.
