Silken tofu provides the base for this delicious pesto sauce made without oil or cheese.
3 ounces dry angel hair pasta
1 pound asparagus, cut diagonally into 2 inch pieces (I got 10 ounces after breaking off the tough lower stalks)…
1 lb pasta (your favorite pasta – rigatoni, shells, macaroni, etc.)
2 carrots, chopped (1/2 cup)…
This recipe originally called for 2 Tbs. olive oil to go in as well (I guess in the dressing), but I left it out and it was great. I think this would also work with any other grain you would like–brown rice, amaranth, millet, barley…I love dill, but you could add whatever fresh herb you have growing in your garden!
This next one is like a spring-roll, without the hassle of spring rolls! It puts it into salad form, which I think is a great idea.

8 ounces tomato sauce — (1 can)…
My favorite pasta recipe is a creamy basil sauce over any kind of pasta.
If couscous is not available, this easy dish can be served over whole grains, such as millet, quinoa, or brown rice.
1 small onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped…
Arrange the noodles on, and garnish with sesame seeds and chinese parsley.
1 pound spaghetti
1 pound vegetables — cut for stir-fry (can use frozen vegetables; I like a mixture that includes broccoli and carrots) …
- Portobello Mushroom Pizzas with HummusI’ve been enjoying my (sort of) new air fryer, but I haven’t been getting as creative with it as other people in my Facebook group have. I’ve done potatoes in fancy ways but mostly plain French fries and hash browns, tempeh bacon, asparagus, and, most successfully, tofu. After weeks of just “winging it,” I decided to... […]
- Go Fish (The Slow Miracle of My Yoga Practice)One of my favorite things about my yoga practice is the way it surprises me each morning during my time on the mat. I’ve written before about how that mat feels like a magic carpet ride at times, and the time I am about to tell you about is no exception. Yet instead of the […]
