Quinoa and Red Beans

Satisfying and low-sodium? Yep. Try with no salt green beans or your other favorite green veg. I didn't have fresh greens or mushrooms but adding them would make the dish even better.

easy white bean tomato dip / spread

Vegan low-fat high-fiber spread with a little protein that comes together really quickly when you need a snack. I usually have it on baked corn tortillas or bread and top it with some chopped hot peppers & olives.

Pumpkin Peanut Soup - vegan, inspired by Williamsburg

I'm still testing this recipe so please feel free to take the seasonings with a grain of salt.

Mixed Lentil Soup

Feel free to use a mix of lentils. I used 1c brown and 2c red and it came out really well. My DH likes soup with "lots of stuff in it" to add texture and colors, so I had to find a way to jazz up regular lentil soup. Yes, it's a little higher in sodium than I would have liked. However, it is about half of a canned soup and my DH says it's way too tasteless with less salt. Hope you enjoy it too.

Black Bean Soup - fat free and low sodium

I tried to find a low-sodium black bean soup that was really easy and I couldn't find a recipe... so I made this! It doesn't have a lot of complexity of flavors but it's low calories, low sodium, high protein and fiber! If you want to add flavor, you could saute some onions and garlic in a little oil before adding them along with the rest of the veggies etc in step 2. You could also add a little vinegar for bite without salt. When I have it I will add a big handful of chopped kale before heating each serving. (but that's not included in the nutritional info here)

Decadent vegan black olive, walnut, and garlic tapenade

This is decadent, use with lots of veggies and in moderation. Toss with hot pasta instead of pesto, try it as an elegant and rich spread on whole grain crackers, thinly spread on bread instead of mayo for a lush addition to a sandwich, or crumble on a vegan pizza as a rich topping instead of the standard cheese. Add hot pepper to taste (be careful if you plan on cooking the mixture later because the heat seems to concentrate) or a fresh herb if you have it... basil is nice but I bet thyme or marjoram would be great too.

Notice that the ratio is 1 to 1 to 1/10th for the olives, walnuts, and garlic respectively. I know weights are more accurate so I went with them here but feel free to experiment. I remembered this "recipe" from a Moosewood cookbook.that I used to have a long time ago... I'm not sure if I changed it or not.

Veg meat loaf

This is a cross-between Coach Nicole's vegetarian meat loaf and a Moosewood Restaurant pate recipe that I happened to remember.
