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.
This simple salad is hearty enough to serve as a main dish.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest calls home-made spaghetti sauce “better than bottled.” I call it “easier than you think.” Contrary to what I’ve found in a lot of overpriced cookbooks, pasta sauce works just fine if you let it cook for just as long as it takes your pasta to boil.
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup vermicelli, crushed…

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) …
- Pasta Fagioli with Cranberry Beans and KaleSince the weather got cooler, I’ve been making a lot more soups and stews. And since I’ve been test-driving a new Instant Pot (more about that in an upcoming post), I’ve been pressure cooking a lot of dried beans. So it was only natural to use my new gadget to make a soup/stew starting with […]
- Coconut Kissed Pumpkin-Persimmon Pie with Millet Carob Crust(Or, “My, My, Me Oh My, I Love Pie”) Does anyone remember the John Travolta movie Michael about an angel who behaves most unlike an angel? Nora Ephron wrote the screen play. Pie is very important to the plot of that movie and its off-beat treatment of disillusion and faith. So if you’ve never seen […]
