SOUP, Minestrone vegan

Based on McDougall's recipe.
Vegan. Low fat. Low sodium.

Parmesan Cheese Grated, Vegan

*This is not my original recipe, but one I learned from other vegan bloggers and have adapted for my own use! Delish as a substitute in Alton Browns guiltless Caesars salad dressing... also a savior on vegan pizza!

Salmon Spinach Salad for 2

A LARGE filling salad!

Gnocchi with Sausageless Sausage

Small cereal dish sized meal.
Rather high in sodium.. may look for a different sauce next time.
Great with side salad & hot bread.
Think I will add some zucchini next time...

Salmon in Orange-and-Cognac

The longer you marinade, the stronger the flavor!

Can also substitute brandy for the cognac...

Pumpkin Pie

Thank you to TOBEARUNNER; Christy, for this wonderful recipe...nothing like the sweet smell of pumpkin cooking on a cool day! Added to SP Recipes for the nutritionals & thought I would share. Enjoy, we sure did! =)

Penne Pasta with Chicken, Grape tomatoes & Zuchinni

We had a bumper crop of grape tomatoes this year so I was searching for some recipes to use them up. Found the base of this recipe on & tweaked it to our tastes.
The result is a light, healthy summer dinner.

Chicken Soft Tacos, 2 per serving

A light, tastey, & low sodium way to use up some leftover chicken.

Banana Zucchini Bread

I make these & bake in the mini aluminum loaf pans to take on our camping & sailing trips.
Great healthier yet child (& husband, lol!) approved yumminess!
Nutritionals include chocolate chips & raisins.

Zucchini Carrot Apple Muffins

These are moist, dense muffins that are NOT sugar or fat free...but are still on the healthy side of things.
I baked them to take on a camping trip & they were not only delicious first thing in the morning, but a nice pick-me-up during a hike~!
My 3 & 5yr olds love them too...a big + ;-)

Note to self: mini chocolate chips would be a good addition!

I may try with 100% whole grain

Sweet Potato & Apple, Baked

I copied another SP recipe, but needed the nutritionals w/o artificial sweeteners & butter. ;-)

Chuck Roast

So easy & so good!
Great with mashed potatoes or noodles with veggies of your choice on the side.

Fresh Tomato, Basil, and Garlic Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta

A very slight variation of Wolfgang Puck, 2004 recipe.
I was looking for something new to try with my summer tomato abundance & this was a winner! Entered into SP for the nutritionals & thought I would share. ;-)

Fresh Fish Bonito Tuna Sandwich

My husband enjoys fishing off Catalina Island here in California & frequently brings home skipjack. It is a tuna...but the fishier tasting not the best eats. HOWEVER, I have discovered that we all LOVE it for tuna sandwiches! If you have a fisherman in your family, give this a try. It is a sandwich that my fussy 4yr old daughter devours!

Turkey Meatloaf

Very flavorful!

Bobby Flay Grilled Portobello Mushroom Stacks

Something that I want to try & needed to see the nutritionals 1st...changed the cheese from manchego to light mozzarella & reduced the amount of vinegarette...need to find a dressing that is lower in fat...will update after we try it! ;-)
