Hot and Sour Noodles

I made this last night and it came out very well. To make it truly fatfree, you need to leave off the peanuts. (But I was bad and ate the peanuts–they added a lot to it!) I served it with some broccoli, carrots, and cabbage that I steam-fried with garlic and ginger and finished off with a splash of soy sauce. The vegetables were a real hit!


Hearty Macaroni Dinner

This recipe is great because it doesn’t require any ingredients you can’t get at a regular grocery store. Even meat eaters like this one, and it’s very hearty.


Hearty Pasta Bean Stew

Creamy Basil Sauce

My favorite pasta recipe is a creamy basil sauce over any kind of pasta.


Chow Fun Noodles with Tofu

Arrange the noodles on, and garnish with sesame seeds and chinese parsley.

      People new to oil-free vegan diets often ask what they can put on baked potatoes.  If you’re used to using margarine or butter, it can be intimidating to be told that you need to either (a) get used to potatoes plain or with new toppings such as salsa or (b) make a cheesy sauce or gravy […]

    • One Bowl Mix and Bake “Pumpkin” Millet Pudding
      One of the things I’m most thankful for each Fall is that it’s time to eat orange food. And one of my favorite orange foods since I was a little kid has always been winter squash. If I’m going to eat it for dinner, either stuffed or right out of the skin, two of my […]
