Pronto Pasta Primavera

Enliven every pasta dish with added vegetables!  Here's a basic recipe to motivate you.

Cuban Black Beans

​A basic bean recipe that can be dressed up with spices when you are ready to make it your very own.

Corn Cakes... and a Lesson in Oil-Free Cooking

These savory cakes are filling as well as versitile.  It's such a simple kid-pleaser that it became a regular in my home.  
This dish is a wholesome take on a traditional South American dish found in many countries.  Top with salsa for a Mexican flavor, plain for an traditional American side dish, or dill dressing for a Southwest ranch flavor.
The key to gently frying without oil here is a low heat and a bit of patience. 

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).
