Tomato and Onion Salad with Tahini Dressing

1 medium red or white onion, peeled and diced
[salt] and pepper to taste…

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.

ETL Salad Dressing

Today I whipped together ingredients that were in my fridge to create a filling vegan salad dressing and I really liked the results!

Creamy Roasted Garlic Dressing

Dressing will last for up to one week in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator.

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!

Bryanna’s Homemade Vegan Chicken-Style Broth Powder

An easy recipe for making your own practically instant broth.

Creamy Coleslaw Dressing

1/2 cup fatfree vegan mayo (Nayonnaise or homemade)
1 Tbs. cider vinegar…

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?)

Italian Salad Dressing

Tastes just like regular italian salad dressing.

Oil-Free Balsamic Vinaigrette

1 1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. dry mustard…

Spicy Chipotle Dressing

1 Package Silken-style FirmTofu (in aseptic packaging, such as Mori-Nu)
3 individual chipotles in adobo (beware: these are very spicy! use fewer if less heat is desired.)…

Raw Fat-Free Dressing

2 stalks chopped celery
1 clove garlic…

Easy Strawberry Jalapeño Dressing

Here’s quick, easy and very healthy salad dressing that I just invented today.

    • Cranberry-Carrot Cake from Vegan Holiday Kitchen
      Six years ago, I was honored to work with Nava Atlas, taking the photos for her book Vegan Holiday Kitchen. It was a gorgeous hard-backed book, and I’m happy to announce it’s just come out in an equally beautiful paperback version, with full-color photographs on heavy, high-quality paper. To celebrate, I asked Nava if I... […]

    • A Little Night Magic
        My parents were sticklers for honoring the traditional 12 Days of Christmas, which hardly anyone seems to recognize anymore. The traditional 12 days of Christmas  are bookended by Christmas Eve,  the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6th. In between are days that have both pagan and Christian significance. In even earlier times the […]
