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 […]

Peanutbutter Poppers

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!

Hummus Lasagna

A wonderful dish for a holiday meal or anytime you are feeding a full table. This recipe comes from our cookbook, The 30-Day Vegetarian for the Hummus Lasagna with the substitution of a new product I found called Butler Soy Curls for the middle layer.

4 Cans Organic Garbanzo Beans 3 Red Bell […]
