A no-knead (isn't that great?!) bread from chef Jim Lahey. I saw this made on Martha's show and it was so beautiful! Very crusty but the inside is a soft, beautiful orange from the carrot juice. Just imagine a slice of bright orange bread studded with nuts and fruit, topped with some melty butter... What a great bread for fall. Prep time is so long because it needs to rise for up to 18 hours on the first rise - gotta plan ahead!
A no-cook "cake" made in your processor with carrots, nuts, oats, and fruit. This does not have a real cake texture, it's more like a dessert loaf. I made this for myself for Easter dessert and loved it. Even hubby enjoyed it! Cook time is refrigerating time.
Creamy, slightly sweet casserole topped with walnuts. Yes, it's made with raw sweet potato and the texture isn't exactly like your typical sweet potato casserole, but I love it! Tweaked the original recipe from Herbs for Health magazine, which called for dehydrating the nuts. Prep time does not include soaking the nuts overnight.
Nice combination of greens and sweet fruit, with some walnuts and celery for extra crunch. This is refreshing, healthy, a little different, and delicious! Found this recipe at drbenkim.com. The amounts are just estimates. Feel free to throw in a little extra of whatever you like, or happen to have more of!
No eggs or substitutes needed! Be sure to ONLY use aluminum-free baking powder or this won't turn out. Can be made gluten free by substituting the flours with equal amounts of Bob's Red Mill gluten free all purpose baking flour. Saw this being made on a health show, but I haven't tried it yet!
Creamy smooth and delicious vegan version of nacho cheese sauce. Great for any Mexican dish, but I like this as a dip for cut up veggies. I've used canned tomato when I had no fresh, and it turned out well, too. Found on living-foods.com
Delicious vegan version of cream cheese. So good on celery sticks or crackers! And you can adjust the seasonings to your taste. I like to add a couple cloves of fresh garlic and some dried herbs. From The Uncheese Cookbook by Joanne Stepaniak.
This is just the thing for when you get a chocolate craving but don't want to go for anything too unhealthy. Creamy smooth, deep chocolate flavor with a hint of berry. Very easy to make, and pretty much guilt-free! I used only about 10 dates and added stevia to taste so there would be less sugars.
Pickled strips of horseradish with a little twist of flavor from the orange juice. Use them in Asian salads or anywhere you would use pickled ginger. From Stephan Pyles Southwestern Vegetarian cookbook. Cook time is marinating time.
The sugar-free jello that I could find wasn't made with Splenda, which is the preferred sweetener on this diet. Very simple recipe and nice served with a little heavy cream whipped with a bit of Splenda. Found this on the lowcarbeating site. Prep time does not include chilling time.
