Vegan Mexican Slow Cooker Casserole

No cheese or sour cream in this recipe. I mixed in the complete recipe on this site that I submitted called Vegan "Nacho Cheese" Sauce. You could use own vegan cheese recipe or if your not vegan, add cheese but don't forget to track it. If not, you may want to add taco seasonings to this recipe.

Very Good (1 rating)
Vegan "Nacho Cheese" Sauce

Yes, it's dairy free and also fat free. Don't expect the greasy mouth feel of real cheese sauce but if taste is king, this sauce is your friend.

Pumpkin Oat Breakfast Bars (vegan)

Healthy and hearty way to start the day.

This makes a huge batch of large patties that can be frozen. You can put one in a bun like a burger but I like them with a little hot sauce or bbq sauce on their own.

Very Good (1 rating)
Amazing Lentil Salad

This makes a large meal size serving or use half of a serving for a side or smaller meal. Under 300 calories for the meal sized serving.

Refried Beans with Veggies (No frying involved) Slow cooker cooked

I eat this as a vegetarian main dish, so the serving is large. Half a serving would work as a side dish.

Vegetarian White Bean Chili

Couldn't be simpler! Dump in crockpot and cook. Can top with grated mozzarella cheese at serving but that is not accounted for in nutritional information.

Homemade fat free gravy

My husband has decided that he prefers this gravy now over normal fatty ones. :-)

Dressing (Stuffing)

My Mom's recipe has always been my favorite but I didn't want to have to abstain so I lightened it up by changing pork sausage meat to lean ground pork and eliminating the 1 cup of butter her recipe called for to be poured over (I used chicken stock instead and it worked just fine). The spices absolutely make this recipe delicious. You truly won't miss all the fat.

Creamy Sausage Crockpot Soup

Customize with veggies or spices you have on hand and enjoy. Cooking time does not include slow cooker being left alone.

Cheesy Mexican Soup

Easy slow cooker soup. Satisfying and healthy.

Homemade light tartar sauce

I love tartar sauce with my fish but dislike how high in calories and fat it is so created this recipe based on others but lowered the fat even more by using nonfat Greek yogurt.

Egg, tomato and cheese "muffins"

Easy breakfast or lunch on the go.

Black Bean, Tomato, Parmesan and Brown Rice Soup

Simple thick and hearty complete meal.

Chocolate peanut butter sugar free zucchini brownies

So yummy and at under 90 calories a square, a guilt free treat. You will never know the zucchini is in there.

Carrot miso sesame soup

Not your "usual" boring carrot soup. :-)

Cajun Black Bean Patties

Only 2.1 grams of fat in these.

Creamy low fat Greek dressing

I like my Greek salad drenched in creamy flavorful dressing, but obviously, that's hard to do and stay healthy. So I experimented and came up with this recipe which is as close as I can get to what I want and still stay healthy.

Chicken enchilada soup with black beans

Nice thick and rich soup good on it's own or with your own mix ins. Yum!

Easy slow cooker chicken chili

Very high fiber (14g per serving). Probably not for people who need to keep their sodium down, but very tasty.

Baked Parmesan Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Add any seasonings of your choice. I like a lot of garlic, some thyme and sage and Club House Roasted Garlic and Pepper seasoning.

Cheesy Corn "dog" muffins

Great lunch on the go or something for a child's lunchbox.


Traditionally served with Ukrainian Christmas dinner but I like it as a snack or even breakfast.

Low sugar banana bread with chocolate chips

Would be even healthier with whole wheat flour but I was out so used white for this recipe.

Filling and low in calories plus gluten free. I used ground chicken.

Sesame garlic scallops

Yummy over rice, rice noodles or even angel hair pasta (not accounted for in calories).

Apple raisin bran muffins

Low fat, high fiber tasty muffins for breakfast or snacks.

Sweet and Sour pineapple pork

This recipe has lots of sauce which is awesome over rice.

Cheesy rice and broccoli casserole

No condensed soup in this recipe. Yet, healthy, creamy and delicious.

Easy Creamy Broccoli Soup

I like putting grated cheese on individual servings to control them amount and because I think it tastes better than cooking it into the soup.

Leek, Onion, Mushroom and Potato Soup (slow cooker)

Good on it's own but also good with a sprinkle of grated cheddar cheese (not accounted for in nutritional information).

Hearty but simple slow cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

This recipe is very low calorie (151 per serving) as additions like sour cream (or Greek yogurt which works perfectly) or shredded cheese are not factored in. Add what you'd like to make it your own. :-)

Banana cranberry bran muffins

Low fat and low sugar with high nutrition and flavor.

Baked cheesy spaghetti squash

I've listed this as a side dish but could be eaten as a main dish for a meatless meal.

Creamy Roasted Veggie and Parmesan soup

So many possibilities with the seasonings in this soup. As comforting as a bowl of cream of tomato soup on a cold day.

Thick hearty lentil tomato and rice soup

Very healthy and hearty recipe and with the addition of the brown rice, a complete vegetarian meal. Seasonings can be adjusted to taste. Can also be prepped and left in a slow cooker for a few hours to blend flavors.

Mexican Beef, Tomato and red pepper soup

Hearty Mexican flavoured soup that can be poured over brown rice for a complete meal or just a filling addition to lunch or dinner.

Oatmeal Berry Muffins

Simple, easy and healthy breakfast or snack muffin.

Bran berry muffins

Classic bran muffins. Very moist and good. I have also made them with raisins or dried cranberries and they are also good this way.
