Yummy Recipes

Here are some recipes I’ve tried recently that resulted in very happy stomachs:

D *loved* this one:


“The Best Vegetable Lasagna



  • 3 cups pasta sauce (like Classico Spicy Tomato and Pesto)
  • 16 ounces 2% cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 9 whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese
  • Approximately 4 cups mixed vegetables (I used spinach, carrots, sundried tomatoes, and zucchini)

Preheat oven to 400*. Spray 11 X 8 glass casserole dish.

  1. Combine cottage and parmesan cheeses.
  2. Place 3 uncooked noodles in pan.
  3. Cover with 1 cup pasta sauce, 1/3 cheese mixture, 1/3 vegetables, and 1/3 mozzarella.
  4. Repeat 2 more times.
  5. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake one hour.

Makes about 8 servings, ~350 kcal per serving.”

This one seems a little weird at first glance but the end result is a terrific mixture of flavors. So easy, too!


“Dinner-In-A-Flash Salmon Pasta

This dish uses all pantry + freezer staples – and is ready in 10 minutes.


First we took a can of salmon (I buy Costco’s wild Alaskan kind) and heated it in the microwave with a cup or so of frozen peas and a handful of frozen spinach, capers (2 tbsp?), dill and kosher salt. NOTE: We thawed and drained the spinach/peas in a collander first!


Meanwhile we cooked some whole wheat pasta (Trader Joe’s) and softened Laughing Cow cheese wedges in our bowls.


And tossed it all together along with a topping of parmesan and red pepper flakes.



I just made these tonight…..I’ll let you know how they turn out after they’ve been refrigerated a while but the raw version was delish.


“Amazing No Cook Chocolate Hazelnut Bites.


1 jar Futter’s Chocolate Haze (lnut Butter)

1 scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate Meal Powder (can also use cocoa powder)

1 cup BearNaked Banana and Walnut Granola (can use any granola of your choice)

1/4 cup honey”


“Raw Whipped Cream


1 1/3 cup raw cashews, soaked 2 hrs
1/2 cup water
3 tbsp agave (or 2 dates)
1/2 vanilla bean (I threw the whole thing in my Vita; if you do this in a food processor, sub 1 tsp vanilla extract)

Blend all ingredients in your Vitamix until smooth and fluffy. To make this in a food processor, start by blending all ingredients, minus 1/4 cup water. Stop frequently to scrape the bowl. When the mixture is quite smooth, drizzle in the last 1/4 cup water till fluffy.


This stuff is so decadent, it’s hard to believe it’s plant-based. Scoop over fresh berries or fruit, and enjoy!
