Vegan Mayo

This is the one I teach at McDougall program and use all the time -great for potato salad with lots of dijon. Vit C makes it nice and tart – more like a sour cream than a mayo.

Mayo/Sour Creme

This recipe was adapted from “Tofu Cookery” by Louise Hagler. The oil has been omitted from an otherwise wonderful recipe and the quantity of tofu changed for convenience.

Easy Creamy Salad Dressing

I like creamy salad dressings that seem full of fat so since we can’t have that “fat” (nasty word)–here is my salad dressing:

Melty Pizza Cheese

I love this recipe. I follow the variation at the bottom to make a cheddar “cheese sauce” and pour it over baked potatoes topped with broccoli for a great no-fat meal. Another thing I do is make a nacho cheese dip by following the variation, but instead of using non-dairy milk, I use Rotel spicy tomatoes. Goes great with baked tortilla chips!

Eden Oil Substitute

This recipe is for an oil substitute for use in salad dressings. The thing I miss about oil in my salad dressings is the “mouth feel”, or the texture. This is not perfect and doesn’t always do the trick, but I love using this to cut the fat in some of my favorite dressings. This recipe is from “The High Road to Health” by Lindsay Wagner. (Remember that old book?)

Pecan Dijon Dressing

A side note: I started out making this with Cuisine Perel’s Spicy Pecan vinegar (available from Dr. Fuhrman’s website and elsewhere). However, that got to be very expensive considering the amount of this I use in a week. So I started making my own pecan-flavored vinegar using pecan extract and seasoned rice vinegar. But seasoned rice vinegar is loaded with sugar and salt, so I began using less of it and adding cider vinegar. The moral of this story is that you can use all Spicy Pecan vinegar or all seasoned rice vinegar (just use more vinegar instead of the water).

    • Double Banana Bread (Vegan and Gluten Free)
      When Mike and Kelly and I come together, we always wind up with an overabundance of bananas from both our households. Some travel all the way to Moscow from Portland, needing to be used up before they turn liquid. Others have accumulated at my home base, as I try to squirrel away more than usual […]
