Magic Salad with Brown Rice

This hearty colorful salad is a great potluck dish.


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.

Pasta Primavera

Susan’s Fatfree Pasta Primavera

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.

Macaroni Salad

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.

This is for one very generous serving, so obviously, you multiply it by however many servings you want to make:


Slow Cooker Carrot Cardamom Oatmeal

This oatmeal is inspired by an Indian dessert Carrot Halwa. Carrot Halwa is a thick paste of carrot, sugar and cardamom that’s sometimes topped with saffron and pistachios.


Slow Cooker Strawberry Layer Cake Oatmeal

This oatmeal has the sweet and slightly sour bite of strawberries with the creamy after taste of vanilla and the richness of So Delicious Coconut milk.

Baked Macaroni and "Cheese"

Baked Macaroni and “Cheese”

You won’t fool non-vegans with this, but if you’re used to nutritional yeast “cheese” sauces, you’ll love this soy-free dish.


Farmer’s Market Rotini

This delicious pasta dish can be a complete meal if you add some chickpeas or white beans along with the sauce.


Hearty Macaroni Dinner

This recipe is great because it doesn’t require any ingredients you can’t get at a regular grocery store. Even meat eaters like this one, and it’s very hearty.
