Cashew "Cheese"/Dip

This delicious dairy-free alternative to the usual fat-filled garlic dip will have you smacking your lips for more!
Please note: this is a nutrient-dense food, so as much as you want to eat the entire container, a 2 tbsp amount give you plenty of what the body needs!

French Onion Soup

This vegetarian-friendly soup makes use of low-sodium vegetable bouillon cubes for flavour, and far less cheese than traditional FO soup calls for.
One trick to making less cheese go farther in a recipe is to make sure the cheese has a strong flavour so you need less of it! I blended two 1-ounce strong cheeses with two 2-ounce softer cheeses in this recipe, but feel free to use your preferred shredded cheese instead, or lower-sodium and lower-fat choices.

Parisbaby's Perfect Meatless Pasta Sauce

This meaty-tasting meatless sauce offers excellent quantities of those vitamins and minerals often missing from a traditional meatless diet, and is in part "boosted" by using a prepared soy product sold nearly everywhere in North America. It's a delicious alternative to meat, and really makes this sauce filling and nutritious! If not available in your region, substitute with Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP), Boca Burger Crumbles, or your favourite soy-based protein.

Note: The sodium levels for regular canned diced and crushed tomatoes would be very high for those monitoring their sodium intake, so be sure to use fresh tomatoes or buy reduced salt canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and soy sauce.

Hummus (without Tahini)

This delicious hummus recipe uses a small amount of peanut butter instead of tahini (sesame paste).

Mr. Greenjeans Vegetable Cornmeal Flatbread Pizza

Closest I could come to the yummy joy that is this pizza.
A thin wood-fired cornmeal crust, smeared with a light pesto sauce, covered with sun-dried tomatoes, grilled artichokes, goat cheese and fresh arugula.

Vegan Lentil and Rice Patties, Reloaded

Based on an excellent recipe by SparkMember DENIBREITENBACH. I have simply changed a few things to suit my taste preferences; the more flavour, the more enjoyment, I always say!
While this recipe uses regular Worcestershire sauce (which has a tiny amount of anchovies), vegan Worcestershire sauce can be used, or it can be left out altogether.
