Oat-chata from OATrageous Oatmeals
Horchata is a traditional Mexican beverage made with homemade rice milk, cinnamon and sweeteners. I’ve taken liberties with it here by adding in oats and almonds. It’s amazing served over ice.
Mom’s Magical Vegan Blueberry Pancakes
My mom has been cooking low fat vegan for years, and she's an amazing cook. This is one of her signature creations.
Easy Cannellini Bean Soup
I originally made this soup trying to recreate the side of white beans at Zoe's Kitchen, which is too high in oil to my liking.
Warm Potato Salad with Spinach and Chickpeas
This warm potato salad is a step aside from the traditional version: it's cooked in a hot skillet and doesn't call for mayonnaise or other fattening dressings.
This spinach answers the call. It has the velvety texture of old-school creamed spinach, yet is low fat, plant based, and gluten free. Better yet, you can make it in under 20 minutes!
This is a quick and easy slow cooker soup that’s soy and oil free. The spices add layers of flavor that turn this simple soup into something you can even serve at your next dinner party.
This recipe is one of my favorites because it has a ton of leeway. No red peppers? Use green peppers or toss in the leftover cooked veggies from last night. No quinoa? Leftover millet or even brown rice would do the job just fine. Just imagine cleaning out the fridge one a week on taco night!

Mussamun curry paste is a red curry paste that includes not only the standard cumin, coriander, and peppercorns, but also an aromatic array of sweet spices, including cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and cardamom.
1 10.5-ounce package lite extra-firm silken tofu, frozen and thawed [I use regular water-packed tofu myself - still frozen and thawed]
2 tbsp soy sauce…
This one is a little twist on normal stuffed peppers–it is a nice change, I think. And, it is quick because you don’t bake them and wait for the peppers to cook.
1 cup okara
Okara is the pulp left over from making soy milk. It’s full of fiber and protein.
- MiracleNaise: Soy-free Mayo plus Roasted Red Pepper DressingI’ve been trying to cut down on the amount of soy I use–not that there’s anything wrong with it–and completely get rid of soy isolates, which I do think are unhealthy. Unfortunately, the silken tofu I always use, Mori-Nu Organic, contains “organic soy protein,” which is just another way of saying “isolated soy protein.” I […]
- Food Dehydrator Love, Part 3: Teff Carrot Cake Bars (Vegan and Gluten-Free)You know what they say about the third time being a charm? I think it’s true. And isn’t it usually the third wish in fairy tales that sets the story in dynamic motion? Often though, that magic is bestowed upon the heroine by the humblest looking creatures, ones we wouldn’t expect to hear talk, […]
