Recipes I've Shared:

Red Velvet Hummus (Black Beans and Beets)

This is super easy to make in a blender or food processor and extremely healthy. You can use two standard cans of drained beans and either cooked, raw, or canned beets.

Fried Brown Rice with vegetables, shrimp, and chicken

This is basically a fabulous way to use up leftovers and those quarter-bags of frozen veggies in the freezer.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Scone

delicious, healthy, not terribly sweet scones.

Summer Salvage Corn, Bean, and Rice Salad

An adaptable vegan gluten-free main or side dish that's absolutely delicious and also great for getting the leftovers out of the fridge.

Cream of mustard soup

A Dutch favorite with medieval roots. Also makes a nice sauce for meat or vegetables.

Inauthentic tom kha

Tom kha is a creamy, spicy, satisfying Thai soup with coconut milk. This is my fake, health-friendly version that skips hard-to-find ingredients such as lime leaf and galangal and relies heavily on improvsation. This provides 19 grams of protein and 150 calories per generous serving. (It does still have a lot of sodium, which could largely be eliminated by making your chicken or shrimp broth as a base.)

protien fudgsicle

High-protein version of the beloved quiescently frozen confection

Stained glass veggie casserole

A quick and easy way to get your colorful veggies. Loaded with vitamin A, folate, and potassium.

Whole wheat Ossi di Morto

"Bones of the dead" Halloween cookies made semi-healthy.

Pumpkin Pie Parfait

A healthy desert with a serving of veggies and lots of protein!

San Antonio Sausage Soup

A hearty, protein-and-veggie rich soup with surprisingly addictive flavor.

Whole-wheat root vegetable muffins

These can be made with any sweet root vegetable. I have had success with carrots, parsnips, beets, and combinations thereof. (Parsnips are exceptionally good.) You can also add nuts, coconut, and/or dried fruit such as raisins or apricots for a more carrot-cake-like texture. The recipe works successfully with anywhere from two to four cups of veggies.

Chicken pot pie

A great way to dispense with leftovers from a chicken dinner.

Tomato cream sauce

A lighter version of the world's best pasta sauce
