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.

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?)
