No-Oil Oil

Use this simple recipe in place of oil in salad dressings.

Winter Minestrone

Okay, here comes the beauty of the pressure cooker. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, the recipe will remain the same, but you will need to allow the soup to simmer for at least an hour until the vegetables are soft.

Minestrone Soup

This classic Italian soup is always vegetarian, and if you leave off the parmesan cheese it’s vegan.
