Golden Macaroni Casserole

From The Almost No-Fat Cookbook by Bryanna Clark Grogan, pages 115 and 41.

Pesto Pasta Salad

Silken tofu provides the base for this delicious pesto sauce made without oil or cheese.

Asparagus Pasta Salad

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)…

Confetti Spring Salad

1 lb pasta (your favorite pasta – rigatoni, shells, macaroni, etc.)
2 carrots, chopped (1/2 cup)…

Garden Couscous and Black Bean Salad

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!

Summer Roll Salad

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.

Noodle and White-Bean Salad

This simple salad is hearty enough to serve as a main dish.

Easy Vegan Pasta Sauce

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.

Cypriot Bulgur Recipe

1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup vermicelli, crushed…

Macaroni-Bean Stew

15 1/2 ounces red kidney beans — (1 can) drained
8 ounces tomato sauce — (1 can)…

Creamy Basil Sauce

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.

Crock Pot Garbanzos and Couscous

1 small onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped…

Chow Fun Noodles with Tofu

Arrange the noodles on, and garnish with sesame seeds and chinese parsley.

Chinese Spaghetti

1 pound spaghetti
1 pound vegetables — cut for stir-fry (can use frozen vegetables; I like a mixture that includes broccoli and carrots) …

    • Crispy Fat-Free Spanish Potatoes
      Vegan and oil-free, these fat-free Spanish Potatoes are pre-cooked and then air fried, making them crunchy and spicy on the outside, creamy on the inside. Lately I find that much of my cooking inspiration comes from going out to restaurants with few vegan options and being forced by hunger to order something I wouldn’t ordinarily […]

    • Thinking About My Things
        When I first began to teach myself how to draw again, I focused a lot on objects from life or from photographs that captured my eye. It took me a long time to attempt to draw something from memory. When I do draw from memory, I learn a lot about what was most prominent […]
