Some more recipes!!!

So, the rest of the recipes we used that week were in the Forks Over Knives cookbook. The recipes below are our adaptations. We actually made 4 recipes, but I'm going to list just 2 because one is a simple vegetable soup p. 94 that was only ok, and the other is a shepherds pie p. 261 that is very long and the kids thought it was good, but not spectacular. I will list the pages in the cookbook so you can go see the originals, when you get the chance!

 Banana Granola Parfait p. 46

1 package silken tofu
2 bananas
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup aprox of molasses
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

granola, homemade
fruit salad, we used frozen mixed berries

blend "yogurt" mixture until smooth. Layer "yogurt", granola, and fruit in bowls or cups. Enjoy! The second time we made the "yogurt" I didn't have silken tofu and I used maple syrup instead of molasses. Still yummy! This recipe is definitely a keeper!

"Cheesy" Potato Soup

4 onions
8 cloves of garlic
12 cups of water
8 potatoes
1 batch of no-cheese sauce (p. 29)
Salt to taste

Cook veges until tender then blend until smooth. Add cheese sauce and cook for 5 min.

This was very cheesy even with only 1 batch of the sauce for 3-4 times the recipe of soup. The kids liked it, so I think we will probably make it again.
