Whatever Works Stir-Fry; and a Lesson in Oil-Free Cooking

Creating a simple stir-fry is a basic skill for convenient, simple plant-based cooking.  Use this recipe to get your daily greens in, use up whatever you have in the fridge that needs eating, and use this recipe as a lesson in stir-frying without oil as well!

Cauliflower au Gratin

A creamy casserole topped with whole-grain bread crumbs to satisfy even those used to cheese sauces. 

Portabella Mushroom Steaks

These big mushrooms have a meaty mouth feel to them and are very satisfying, yet light.
Serving Suggestions: 
-- Place on whole-grain burger buns and add your favorite condiments for a great burger, or on the plate for a great steak!
-- Serve with mashed potatoes, frozen vegetables and a hearty salad.

Carrot Rice Casserole

A rich and satisfying casserole - I have never met someone who didn't like it (note the peanut butter if allergies are a consideration).  This is a good recipe to bring to a dinner party.

Portabella Sandwiches or Burgers

I would call this a fun-burger.  The texture of a thick, juicy mushroom is very satisfying, and works well in a bun!  Fix it up with burger toppings and you'e got an enjoyable meal!

Pasta Primavera Soup

A great and easy lunch recipe from last night's dinner!  Add a salad if you can.

Hummus Plate

Hummus or Middle Eastern chickpea spread is so satisfying and versitile, as a snack with veggies and rice snaps, in a wrap or sandwich, a stuffing for mushroom appetizers, or diluted for a salad dressing!  It's easy to keep it low-fat by abstaining from adding oils.  If you need to control weight, avoid further added fat by eliminating the tahini (sesame butter).

Mock Tuna Salad

This is a very satisfying alternative to a tuna salad, that can be used in sanwiches, wraps or salads.  Make more than you think, as it goes fast!

Carrot Dogs

I love this creation!  Who would have guessed that the humble carrot can be all dressed up to be a fancy dog!

A side of baked beans, and any frozen or steamed veggies makes a meal.  (Salads are always welcome too.)

Kitchen Sink Salad

Be brave! An unplanned salad can be just as delicious as one from a recipe. Salads with a simple dressing are great vehicles for leftovers and makeovers, and often turn out tastier than you ever expected. Getting raw vegetables in everyday will fill you up and boost your immune system, so try experimenting. Bell pepper? Tomatoes? Fruit? Beans? Pasta? Throw it together!
