Southern Grits and Greens Casserole
Inspired by a sassy Southern romance novel, this casserole is sinfully good, yet deliciously healthy.
Healthy Chocolate Frosting (Soy Free)
You'll never guess the secret ingredient in this creamy, dreamy chocolate frosting!
Homemade unsweetened soy yogurt
The options out in the world for plain, unsweetened soy yogurt are slim. And if you can find it, it’s usually pretty expensive. Luckily it’s easy to make at home.
Vegan “tuna” salad
This vegan tuna salad is one of our go to meals when we are feeling super hungry but don’t want to cook.
This dip tastes like pumpkin pie, but without the refined sugar, flour, or other junky stuff. Great for fall entertaining, or makes a tasty snack for kids (and adults, too!)
This makes two 3.5-cup smoothies and provides half the fruit and all the raw veggies you need on the ETL plan. Drink up! –tortugita718
This recipe is higher fat than the 15% guideline for this website; however, I feel the fat from the ground flaxseeds–which provides the adequate Omega 3s for an entire day for most of us–justifies the higher fat because it is functional nutrition. –tortugita718
This is a recipe I made for a coworker of mine who saw how healthy my homemade vegan meals looked and that I seem healthy and happy. I made this for him and have named it in his honor. –tortugita718
1/2 lb tomatoes seeded and chopped
1 1/2 tbl tomato paste…
1 lb. extra firm tofu
3/4 C. water…
1 Tbsp. water
1/2 c. finely minced onion…
1/2 c all fruit peach or apricot preserves
1/4 c white or cider vinegar…
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
3 tablespoons whole wheat flour (I use Gold Medal)…
This ranch dressing uses silken tofu instead of mayo for a low-fat version that will add creaminess to any salad.
There is a traditional Polish salad of grated raw Kohlrabi and carrot – tastes great! Using this as inspiration I have taken things a stage further and made a soup.
Lassi is an Indian yogurt drink that can be either sweet or salty. I like mine sweet with mango, mint and just a hint of lemon verbena.
This cake is incredibly moist and lightly spiced, but the pineapple frosting really brings it over the top! –Healthyvic
These have tons of flavor with chunks of gooey bananas. The secret ingredient is the cashew sour cream. Do not leave it out!
- Oil-Free Baked Portobello FriesDo you know why vegan cooks are so creative? I think it’s because we’re constantly being tempted by interesting dishes on restaurant menus that are “vegan except for.” You know, the chickpea appetizer that is vegan–except for chicken broth. Or the hash browns that are vegan–except they’re cooked on a griddle alongside bacon. Or the portobello fries […]
- Aqua Fava Carob Pieces (Vegan, Gluten and Oil Free)Though I’ve gotten a lot less fussy (or maybe lazy) in my cooking habits, from time to time I still can’t resist my proclivity for vegan adaptations of things I know I should never eat in their original form. This experiment is that a couple times over, since most of you can eat a few […]
