Simple Banana & Peanut Butter Smoothie

Great tasting, with lots of potassium.

Simple Carrot and Kale Smoothie

Just a simple recipe to use up produce in refrigerator.

Hangover green smoothie

This works as a great pick-me-up after a long night, or after a hard workout. Don't let the look of it fool you, it's actually pretty sweet thanks to the cinnamon and honey.

Bean Salad

This is a recipe we keep around for hot days when we don't feel like cooking. I had a hard time converting to this site's mesurements so the nutrition information might be off a bit. The lime juice is a great accent to the other ingredients. I use a bit more than suggested, it gives it a very refreshing taste and smell. Sometimes we top with cilantro to kick up the flavor and presentation a bit.

Cleaning Out The Cabinets Quiche

I woke up craving quiche and had some left over kale, olives and sunflower seeds.

I would have used regular milk but we were out. The soy milk isn't bad, it just gives the quiche a more spongy texture.

Oh and the crust doesn't need to be rolled!

Super Duper Fast Kale and Bean Stew

Hearty and filling and oh so easy to make!

Bean and Pesto Soup

Cheap, quick and oh so delicious!

Incredible! (2 ratings)
Herbed Potato Soup

This is a simple creamy soup. I also add a few leaves of fresh oregano for taste.

Spaghetti Squash Pie

I threw this together to get rid of some leftovers.The squash's texture imitates coconut. If you want a sweeter pie, you can increase the regular sugar to 1/2 c. I like to use margarine for the crust because it's easier to work with but butter is best in the pie itself for the taste.

Vegan Jambalaya in under an hour?!

My vegetarian ( or vegan) version of Jambalaya. I'm easy on the heat but you can add more cayenne pepper and some Tabasco to taste. If you want the recipe more soup-like, you will probably want to add more water.

Hearty Curry Autumn stew

I threw this together with some leftovers and a squash I got at the apple orchard. It's very filling and warms you right up!

Veggie Stew

A very simple and easy to make stew. Low in calories but very filling.

Apple Brown Betty

Based on Emeril's recipe but with some of my own modifications, mostly based on what I keep in the house and personal preference.

Vata Yogurt Substitute

I have a lot of digestive problems. I've tried different things to remedy it and one day I stumbled upon a website dedicated to Aryuvedic Medicine. I read up on the body types and discovered I was a Vata type. This is loosely based on the dietary recommendations from that website. I'm lactose intolerant so this is a nice substitute for yogurt.

Spinach and apple salad

A nice, fresh salad for summer.

Ginger-Peach Indian Chicken

This was just the right amount of spicy and sweet. I let it sit at least overnight and the chicken comes out oh so tender! I got this from Cooking Pleasures magazine.

Fresh Pasta and Tuna with No cook Tomato Sauce

I got this recipe from the Cooking club Magazine. I didn't have the lemon-pepper salt seasoning so I just mixed 1 tsp salt with some pepper and then threw in some lemon juice. I think the effect was a little fresher.
