  • 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. Tabasco® sauce or 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)

Granola

Granola

  • 12 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 cups almonds
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups honey
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/3 olive oil
  • 1/3 cup vanilla or almond extract (I know this sounds like a lot, but the oats tend to absorb the flavor)
Directions
  1. Mix all ingredients well
  2. Spray 2 regular cookie sheets with cooking spray
  3. Place approximately 10 cups of mix on each sheet
  4. Bake overnight in a 215° F oven
  5. Remove first thing in the morning and allow to cool
Raw kale salad

Raw Kale Salad

  • Lacinato kale
  • Black olives (I prefer the botija raw olives)
  • Red pepper
  • Red onion
  • Shredded carrots
  • Chopped red cabbage
  • Toasted pumpkin seeds
Directions
  1. Rinse kale and shake off excess water
  2. Chop peppers
  3. Slice onions into half-moon shapes
  4. Add all ingredients together along with your favorite dressing, mine would be the garlic Italian
NOTE: I did not give any measurements for this salad on purpose. Add ingredients until you like the color scheme. I also like to add either marinated tofu or pasta to it once in a while. This salad is loaded with folate and other B vitamins and is a good source of calcium. I crave for it and enjoy it four to five times a week!
Tomato soup

Home-Style Tomato Soup

  • 2 tbsp. Earth Balance® buttery spread
  • 1/2 large red or yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil or dill, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cans Del Monte® basil, garlic, oregano diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chicken seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
DIRECTIONS
  1. Saute onion and garlic in Earth Balance®
  2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes
  3. Carefully puree or blend ingredients
  4. Serve with a dollop of Vegan Sour Cream and a fresh sprig of basil or dill
Note: When blending hot ingredients, be very careful to pulse blender so that the hot mix does not explode out the top of the blender. I've learned this the hard way.
