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.

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) …

    • Portobello Mushroom Pizzas with Hummus
      I’ve been enjoying my (sort of) new air fryer, but I haven’t been getting as creative with it as other people in my Facebook group have. I’ve done potatoes in fancy ways but mostly plain French fries and hash browns, tempeh bacon, asparagus, and, most successfully, tofu. After weeks of just “winging it,” I decided to... […]

    • A State of Wild Grace
      Recently a dear long time friend drove all the way from the Palouse to visit me here on the edge of the continent. It was special magic to have someone who’s known and been there for me for over 20 years come all this way to giggle and play and commune with nature with me […]
