Recipes I've Shared:

Kari's Canary Bean and Cabbage Soup

Tasty low fat soup with cabbage, canary beans and hominy. Recipe makes 9 cups. 128 calories per cup. Will serve 4 as a main dish (2 1/4 cups each).

Note: The sodium will be less than nutritional data shows if you rinse and drain beans and hominy and use no salt diced tomatoes. You could also use vegetable broth in place of water and vegetable bouillon cubes. Adjust accordingly.

Mock Chicken Fideo

Chinese canned gluten (mock chicken) is used in this recipe, but you can use any vegetarian chicken substitute you choose (or chicken, if you're a meateater); the nutritional data will change accordingly.
Fideo is vermicelli pasta that's cut in very short lengths, about one inch. If you can't find fideo in your grocery store, you can substitute vermicelli broken in short pieces.

Recipe makes 8+ cups and will serve 4 to 6.
I like to serve this with refried beans and tortillas.

Kari's Energy Bars

Slightly sweet, these energy bars are made with quinoa, oat bran, figs, raisins, almonds and pepitas. Good for a snack or breakfast. Recipe makes 16 bars.

Veggie Chili

Vegetarian chili. Spiciness will depend on your choice of chili powder. For spicier chili, add jalapeno or red chile flakes or cayenne.

Nutritional data doesn't account for rinsing beans. To further reduce sodium omit Bouillon Base.

Fried Squash Puffs (summer squash & onion) fritters

If you can afford the fat grams, these are very tasty. Use white whole wheat flour instead of plain flour if you'd rather.

Kari's Spicy Peanutty Chickpea and Sweet Potato Soup

Chickpeas and sweet potato chunks star in a rich broth flavored with Indian spices and peanut butter.

Kari's Garam Masala Oat Dosa

Dosa is an Indian pancake/crepe typically made with rice and urad dal which are soaked overnight, ground, and the batter fermented. This is a quick (sweet) version.
