Based on a recipe from McDougall's Maximum Weight Loss book

Buddha's Delight

An easy to make version of Buddha's Delight

Fruity Salsa

I like taking recipes and changing them to my own liking. This is one of those -- and probably my favorite new dish in quite a while. This can be served cold with either Cinnamon tortilla chips or lightly salted (or unsalted) regular tortilla chips

Butter Tofu Masala

I adore Butter Paneer Masala, but sometimes making paneer is more effort than I want to make. This is my quickie version of Butter Tofu Masala. Spices can be adjusted to your tastes. If you don't have access to Greek yogurt, sour cream or heavy cream works too.

Peanut Butter Vegetable Soup

This is a slight adaptation of a soup I found in a Better Homes and Gardens book.

Vegetable Chinese (Chicken) Noodle Soup

I found a recipe in one of my Chinese cookbooks that sounded good but not nearly filling enough. So, of course, I adapted it to make it enough for a few meals. The broth is based on the book's "Chinese Stock": the stock of boiling a chicken and ham.

1 lb of lean chicken or pork could be substituted for the tofu.

Cheating Vegetable Curry

I wanted Indian food for several people , , one night but didn't have enough money to afford it, so I whipped this up out of what I had available. I'm a big fan of garlic and onion, so there's a lot of those two in this. If garam masala isn't available, use additional curry powder.

Vegetarian "Beef" Mole

I always wanted to try mole sauce, but I couldn't find a recipe I liked -- so I made my own. Serve it warm with rice.

Curry Soup

I wasn't feeling well, and I wanted soup I could actually taste. I had recently developed a love for curry -- and came up with curry soup recipe.

Late Summer Salad

I tried a salad similar to this at a local restaurant and decided it was something I wanted to have more often (for less than $7 each). Baby spinach and pepper replaces arugula.

Summer Salad for One

As the weather heats up, this is a good cool meal for one with very little prep required.

Tofu Etoufee

One of the things I miss most about eating meat is Cajun food, so I took a recipe for Shrimp Etoufee and edited it a bit. Good served over brown rice.

Spicy Lentil Stew

Something new I thought I'd try, not sure yet how it will be

Vegetarian Taco Soup

Taco Soup with a twist -- it's vegetarian!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

A quick and easy alfredo sauce

Congealed Salad

A Southern favorite

Vegetable Noodle Soup
