Autumn Slaw (Cabbage Apple Citrus Salad with Walnuts & Raisins)

This is a variation of my Autumn Slaw recipe. In this dish, as well as in the original, there is no added sugar, salt or oil. Instead of fresh orange juice, I use one of the new vinegars we now carry at Mother Earth’s  Storehouse, tangerine balsamic. It blends quite well with the fresh lemon…

Kale Apple Salad

I like to prepare  this dish in the autumn, though it can be enjoyed any time of year. The shredded apples add a nice freshness to the dish and balance the bitterness of the kale. It’s great as a holiday side or a light summer meal! Ingredients 1 small bunch of kale (about 2-2 ½…

Apple Walnut Salad

It’s apple season! We have the best apples here in our northeast region–and so it was time to revisit the apple salad recipe I created in the spring. I wanted to experiment with a couple of special vinegars that we now carry at Mother Earth’s. As simple as it is, this variation was very well received. Ingredients: 3 medium organic…

Veggie Nut Burgers

Apricot Almond Bites

Apple Walnut Salad

For our springtime celebrations theme I prepared a variation of the traditional Passover dish: haroset. It is basically made with apples, walnuts, cinnamon, sugar or honey, and dates. There are many variations, one of which has sweet grape wine, so I decided to try out a nice, sweet balsamic vinegar instead. And to balance the…

Veggie Nut Loaf

Years ago during my ashram days I used to make a nut loaf from the Higher Taste cookbook. The original recipe has cheese in it so I made some adjustments to make this recipe vegan. I omitted the cheese and added chickpea flour as a binder. I also used lentils to put more fiber and…

Nutty Delights

Sweet treats can be made with healthy ingredients and without added processed sugars. Dried fruit is a great natural sweetener and works well in many dessert recipes. Organic walnuts and almonds are on sale at Mother Earth’s this month! Ingredients ½ cup dates (the moister, the better)—rough chopped ¼ cup dried plums (prunes)—rough chopped ¼ cup…

Apple Walnut Salad

It is basically made with apples, walnuts, cinnamon, sugar or honey,  and dates. There are many variations, one of which has sweet grape wine, so I decided…

Kale Salad

Kale is such a nutritious green that I find myself adding it to a lot of my recipes. For this one, kale is the star. To balance out the bitterness of the kale I use apples and a fruit spread sweetened with fruit juice. It’s quite refreshing! Ingredients 1 small bunch of kale—removed from stems…
