Tomato and Onion Salad with Tahini Dressing

1 medium red or white onion, peeled and diced
[salt] and pepper to taste…

Vegan Mayo

This is the one I teach at McDougall program and use all the time -great for potato salad with lots of dijon. Vit C makes it nice and tart – more like a sour cream than a mayo.

ETL Salad Dressing

Today I whipped together ingredients that were in my fridge to create a filling vegan salad dressing and I really liked the results!

Creamy Roasted Garlic Dressing

Dressing will last for up to one week in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator.

Mayo/Sour Creme

This recipe was adapted from “Tofu Cookery” by Louise Hagler. The oil has been omitted from an otherwise wonderful recipe and the quantity of tofu changed for convenience.

Easy Creamy Salad Dressing

I like creamy salad dressings that seem full of fat so since we can’t have that “fat” (nasty word)–here is my salad dressing:

Melty Pizza Cheese

I love this recipe. I follow the variation at the bottom to make a cheddar “cheese sauce” and pour it over baked potatoes topped with broccoli for a great no-fat meal. Another thing I do is make a nacho cheese dip by following the variation, but instead of using non-dairy milk, I use Rotel spicy tomatoes. Goes great with baked tortilla chips!

Bryanna’s Homemade Vegan Chicken-Style Broth Powder

An easy recipe for making your own practically instant broth.

Creamy Coleslaw Dressing

1/2 cup fatfree vegan mayo (Nayonnaise or homemade)
1 Tbs. cider vinegar…

Eden Oil Substitute

This recipe is for an oil substitute for use in salad dressings. The thing I miss about oil in my salad dressings is the “mouth feel”, or the texture. This is not perfect and doesn’t always do the trick, but I love using this to cut the fat in some of my favorite dressings. This recipe is from “The High Road to Health” by Lindsay Wagner. (Remember that old book?)

Italian Salad Dressing

Tastes just like regular italian salad dressing.

Oil-Free Balsamic Vinaigrette

1 1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. dry mustard…

Spicy Chipotle Dressing

1 Package Silken-style FirmTofu (in aseptic packaging, such as Mori-Nu)
3 individual chipotles in adobo (beware: these are very spicy! use fewer if less heat is desired.)…

Raw Fat-Free Dressing

2 stalks chopped celery
1 clove garlic…

Easy Strawberry Jalapeño Dressing

Here’s quick, easy and very healthy salad dressing that I just invented today.

    • Simple Instant Pot Black Bean Soup
      I had a craving for black bean soup but didn’t feel like cooking. I wanted to keep the chopping and measuring to a minimum, so I tried to narrow down black bean soup to its most essential flavors. I came up with a soup that took just a few minutes to throw together and then... […]

    • At The End Of The The Rainbow
      It’s barely visible, but if you look closely at this photograph, there is a fading rainbow just above the tops of the trees. And it you look even more closely, you’ll see the residue of another  one above it where the clouds are breaking through. It is the Spring of 2014 on the Palouse. This […]
