Recipes I've Shared:

Vegan Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Scrumptious over pasta, veggies, anything. Low in sodium, quick to make, and lower in fat than you'd guess for how creamy it is.

Quinoa Black Bean Stew, low sodium

Adapted somewhat drastically from a 11/15 VT recipe to lower sodium content. I also eliminated zucchini and added sweet potato. Just because.

Favorite Lo-So Peanut Sauce

Basic Peanut sauce to dress noodles with or use as a dip. This is a lower sodium version, for those of us who need to watch our sodium consumption carefully.

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

These spicy-sweet oven fries are my new favorite thing. Could eat them pretty much every night.

Orange Sesame Balsamic Vinaigrette

Nice light flavor to dress veggies. Would also make a nice marinade.

Roasted Cauliflower "Rice"

A Whole Foods nutritionist did a cooking demo at my workplace, and she used this "rice." It has a nutty flavor and adds a nutritious punch as a swap for rice or other grains. I now make it every Sunday and use it throughout the week.

Balsamic Glaze (homemade)

Simple balsamic reduction - a million ways to use it.

Curried Cauliflower Chickpea Wraps

There's a nice spicy/sweet/tangy blend in this nutrient-dense wrap. As written, each serving of this is crazy rich in A, B-6, C, potassium, iron, fiber and more, and packs a respectable 15g protein -- all at under 400 calories.

Tropical Green Smoothie Pops

Made these for my son as a healthy alternative to ice cream pops.

Mango High Protein Smoothie

I like this for dinner when I don't feel like cooking anything.

Roasted Red Pepper Humus, Lo-Cal, Lo-Salt

Recently diagnosed with hypertension, I wanted to create a super-low sodium hummus that actually tastes good. I also wanted it low in fat and calories. This fit the bill.

Mango Green Smoothie

Healthy, tasty,, easy, yum!

Orange Maple Tempeh

Sweet, meaty main dish, nice served with a baked sweet potato and steamed broccoli.

Tofu Stix with Marinara

Like mozzarella sticks, except ... hella healthy! And yummy. Like, WOW, yummy.

Weekend Power Breakfast Bowl (Vegan)

A bowl of this starts my day off happy. Wish I had time to make it weekdays

Veggie Bowl with Miso Tahini

Adapted from the Post Punk Kitchen's Roasty Soba Bowl. Makes a delicious and hearty lunch or dinner.

Zesty Tofu Scramble Breakfast Bowl

I don't like sweet stuff for breakfast - I crave savory and spicy. I love this protein-packed power bowl for a weekend breakfast and make a lot so I can have leftovers to devour at work, too.

Heaty Broccoli Soup (Vegan)

A thick and hearty broccoli soup that comes together in a snap and is jam-packed with nutrients. Couscous and chickpeas give it extra body and make this soup a meal on its own.

Imbolc Cleansing Curry

A warming and nutritious way to anticipate the coming of spring. The vegetables bring a bright sweetness to it, balanced out by the warming heat of the curry powder.

Crazy-Simple Cauliflower Soup

Super low-cal but filling, this quick and easy cauliflower soup is so simple but has amazing flavor and texture.

Vegetable Bean Medley Soup

A comforting and healthy concoction made luscious with a hearty dollop of miso.

Classic Bean Salad

This is a 4 bean version of the classic 3-bean salad. The amount of oil can probably be halved easily without impacting the flavor.

Quickie lite tofu-peanut sauce

This is a light-textured peanut sauce that's quick to make and easy on the calories. The addition of PB2 allows for full peanutty taste without adding lots more fat and calories.

Lentil-Vegetable Super Soup (adapted)

This is a slightly modified version of a VT recipe from 2005. I added more veggies and upped the quantity of spices, and also opted for prepared broth rather than bullion cubes. It's very easy to make, freezes well, and is both filling and incredibly healthy.

Broccoli Parsnip Soup

Filling broccoli-veggie soup without all the fat and calories of traditional cream of broccoli soup


Guilt-free mashed potatoes! This is an alternate version of "Caulipots" from Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.

Bistro Broccoli Chowder

A filling, nutrient-dense broccoli soup from "Appetite for Reduction" by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Miso Tahini Dressing

An *EASY* and quick creamy dressing from Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. Lovely on Asian-style salads (and tons of other salads) or to give sandwiches an extra kick. Especially good on falafel,

Chickpea & Carrot Tagine

Super-easy Moroccan-inspired tagine, adapted from a Vegetarian Times recipe

Chickpea & Carrot Tagine

Super-easy Moroccan-inspired tagine, adapted from a Vegetarian Times recipe
