Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

Yummy! A new twist on an old stand by....

Pecan encrusted tofu

Serve with spaghetti squash with sauce and a glass of milk for a full meal deal .

Pumpkin oatmeal

Oatmeal makes a good breakfast, but this is good enough for dessert too! Serve warm in a fancy dish with whip cream and a sprinkle of spices, yum! And its not just good tasting, its good for you too, with 100% of your RDA for vitamin A, 4 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein, this is some good stuff!

Corn and Bean Enchilada Casserole

A lighter and simpler version of the traditional enchilada.
Layering ingredients is easier than rolling into tortillas, and the recipe is very easy to adjust to personal tastes. Corn and beans makes a perfect and complete protein, sans meat. This is one my go-to in a hurry meals for good reason! Full of fiber, good carbs, vitamins galore and protein, there's nothing this meal lacks!
To keep the gluten-free status of the meal, obviously one will have to use gluten-free ingredients, but that should be easy on this one.
(Sodium is less than calculated as long as corn and beans are rinsed.)

Carrot Souffle

Who knew carrots could be so good for dessert?!

Chocolate Bean Cupcakes

Beans, banana and applesauce make the base for this suprisingly tasty treat.

Cottage Cheese Pudding

The cottage cheese is the secret ingredient in this, nobody ever guesses whats in it!
An easily adaptable recipe, can be made with or without sugar, and with a variety of different fruits- fresh, canned or frozen.
Also good frozen on a hot summer day. Enjoy!

Chocolate chip (with tofu!) cookies, wheat free

Ar you making a funny face at the idea of tofu in your cookies? Because tofu has pretty much no flavor of its own it just ads a nice bit of moisture and a light texture to these delicious cookies. Go try it!

GF if you can tolerate oats, but I'll attempt to work out a "no oats" version here one of these days for those of you who can't.

Regular Bread

Regular bread for regular people

Watermelon Soup

Cool and sweet, this is not your traditional boring soup! Melon and cucumber with just a hint of yogurt is a nice change of pace for standard summer foods.

Super easy GF tofu cheesecake

Guilt-free, low carb, low cal, gluten-free cheesecake, no baking required! Obviously to maintainthe GF status you will have to use only GF ingredients. My favorite GF crust is made by smashing up GF cookies and using in place of graham crackers in a standard graham cracker crust. However, this is delicious crust-free also and nobody ever guesses there's tofu in it, its that good!

Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Adapted from Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating by Jules Shepard. Please take note that in order to keep the "gluten-free" status of these muffins, you will have to make sure to use gluten-free versions of all ingredients. These are delicious, moist and pretty forgiving muffins, add nuts, use flavored yogurt... dress them up so they are your own! Enjoy!
