I’m always on the hunt for new dip ideas. This was an experiment I am quite pleased with. It is quick, filling and delicious, not to mention healthy!
4 or 5 cans rinsed beans (e.g. dark red, black, white, chickpea, and kidney)
1 mango, diced into small pieces…
1 3/4 c Filtered water or vegetable stock
1 c Couscous, medium size, toasted…
Delicious Smoothie with protein from kale
This is a great quick meal. To make the sauce richer, use more soy milk and less water.
Sometimes I also add a bit of curry paste dissolved in hot water.
Use other vegetables as desired in this salad. Small broccoli florets are a nice addition. Nasoya makes a fat free mayonnaise that may also be used in this recipe. It can be found in most natural food stores.

I love thick, hearty chili in cold weather. It’s always so satisfying and filling, so it makes a great comfort food…especially when served my favorite way: over warm grits!
- Fat-Free Whole Wheat Bread for Bread MachinesI was in graduate school the first time I made bread. Years before I became vegetarian, I was trying on vegetarianism as a weight-loss diet and cooking vegetarian dishes out of a popular cookbook of that era. For some reason, the book’s authors recommended cooking whole wheat bread in 2-quart cans, the kind juice comes […]
- Sweet or Savory Vegan Hearty Hot Pockets (Spelt or Gluten-Free)Maybe the reason I’ve been baking since I was a little girl is that it’s in my blood. I’m sure that’s what my grandmothers would say. And my maternal grandmother would proudly remind me of her brothers, the Marcils, who ran a bakery in the small town back east where my mother grew up. Later, […]
