Black Bean Cake with Chocolate Maple Frosting

I can appreciate that my idea of dessert may well be wide of the mark of traditional family fare. But these low fat, high protein and minimal sugar treats are really something to consider if you are trying to eat healthy. Come on! Have you ever heard of a slice […]

Gluten Free Buckwheat Tabouli

Hummus night has to be my favorite family meal. We make two versions of low fat hummus dip (one extra spicy) and home made Tzatziki (yogurt and cucumber). Last night I decided to add a new dish to our middle east buffet and came up with my version of a wheat free tabouli. The fresh […]

Mock Tuna Salad

I love when a friend stops by near supper time. My casual kitchen (read that pots and pans in the sink) is always open and our dinner table can always fit one (or more!) place settings. Last night we were having a very casual and cold plate — tofu-tuna salad, which is perfect for our […]

Holiday Ideas

My Thanksgiving buffet this year consisted of a homemade Seitain Roast, bread stuffing, “pan” gravy, cranberry-mango sauce, roasted eggplant and red pepper humus lasagna, mashed potatoes, steamed green beans with salted almond slivers, fresh Italian antipasto with marinated mushrooms, mozzarella cheese and veggie ham and turkey slices, and no less than five holiday pies!

Lemon Chiffon

Still working on my gluten free, high protein line of cakes, I tried a new dessert this weekend for lemon festival fans! This light lemon chiffon uses garbanzo beans as the base which harmonize with the lemon and dates in this dish to make a perfect medly.

Cake:

6 Egg Whites […]

Chocolate Torte Video!

Check out our new video for the Chocolate Raspberry Torte (ok, we didn’t have any raspberries on hand, so we used strawberries and called it Chocolate Berry Torte 😉

Chocolate Raspberry Torte

Ok, in my previous bean cake creations I mention that these low sugar, gluten free natural treats were something to dance about if you had food allergies or other dietary restrictions and could not partake of normal cakes and other decadent desserts. But this new torte changes all that. My new recipe for […]

Gluten Free Banana Cake with Walnut Dream Frosting

I get a lot of people asking me about gluten free cooking. My book, The 30-Day Vegetarian does have many gluten free meal ideas, but when it came to cakes I had been at a loss to replicate the moist and light texture within a whole foods paradigm. That was until I discovered […]

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

This recipe is part of a new line I am working on of “bean cakes” that replace traditional flour with canned beans. These wonderfully moist cakes are also minimal sugar and higher in protein making them a guilt-free indulgence!

Cake Ingredients:

2 cans Navy Beans (drained) 1/3 cup Raisins 1 ½ cups Grated […]
