Most Thai Peanut Noodle soup recipes contain coconut milk and peanut butter. Because I follow a low-fat (and oil free) way of eating, I did not want to use coconut milk. Not only does a high-fat soup cause my gastrointestinal upset after adopting a low-fat diet, that saturated fat adds up quickly even in a […]
This soup recipe emerged from the typical scenario: what did I have in the pantry and fridge to make something with. I added flavors until it was bold enough. I added “stuff” until it was hearty enough. Yes, a bowl of this soup is definitely a meal, no question. And it has enough flavor to […]
This recipe is a great one for your leftover cranberries that might be in the fridge or freezer after the holidays (it also makes a fantastic holiday side dish if it’s the season!). I purchased way too many bags of cranberries, and have been left with more than I care to admit on hand. So […]
Dragon sauce is a ginger forward creamy sauce that is usually added to buddah bowls – bowls filled with a grain, vegetables, and perhaps tofu chunks that have been baked or fried. But really it’s a perfect sauce for all sorts of things: dipping vegetables, drizzing over roasted vegetables, or just heaping a spoonful on […]
You can use this simple spice blend in your pumpkin pie recipes, or also in beverages, trail mixes, and other desserts. It’s an all-round spice blend that comes in handy in so many ways. A simple pumpkin spice blend to use in pies, coffees, trail mix, desserts, and more.
I love “meal” sized salads that carry enough punch they fill you up and let you feel satisfied. This vegan and oil-free salad fits the bill. It has a bunch of potato and chickpeas added to add a bunch of fiber, starch, and protein to fill your stomach and leave you satiated at the end […]
Ever since I went low-fat and no-oil, I threw out all the oils in my household. Then when I moved temporarily into mom’s house I did the same (with her blessing of course). Well, in each case we sent them to a friend who uses oil… so at least it wasn’t wasteful. Regardless, it set […]
It’s easy to get into a rut for breakfast: oatmeal and more oatmeal. Cereal. More oatmeal. While this muesli still utilizes the handy rolled oats, they are quite a bit different in this tasty variation. Adding chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and a healthy amount of plant-based milk, this hearty meal will help you wake up […]
This recipe, again, came from what I happened to have in the fridge and pantry. The tomatoes needed to be used up (they were starting to wrinkle), and the fingerling potato bag was beckoning to me. I love fingerling potatoes. So I had a tin of Thai Green Curry paste and thought it would go […]
This recipe only has a few ingredients, and might be stuff you already have in your cupboards!
I wanted to make a few different types of trail mix for quite some time. I have a bunch of bags of nuts and seeds, and I’m moving internationally, this means it’s time to start moving through my pantry so I do not need to pack it all in boxes! The plan was to make […]
This mango ginger dipping sauce is the perfect complement to your plant based spring rolls made with fresh vegetables and rice paper wraps. The mango offers a bright and refreshing tang, while the ginger gives it a slight hit of spice. And of course you can heat it up even further by swirling a bit […]
I recently found some poached lotus root at our local Japanese grocery store. I love lotus root, having ordered it (pickled) in salads for years – a very common preparation at Vietnamese restaurants. I will certainly have a vegan version of that salad on this website in the near future. However, I wanted to use […]
Nutritious can be decadent. It can even taste a bit like dessert. This green smoothie has dessert written all over it, but you can enjoy it for breakfast. This creamy tropical green bean smoothie also has kale, but adding a tropical blend of fruit, watermelon juice, and some cashew milk to make it taste like […]
