MACARONI SALAD SAUCE


AFC MACARONI SALAD SAUCE

Vegan sour cream has about half the calories of vegan mayonnaise, and it’s thicker, so you can add more to it without watering it down too much. For that reason, at least in some salads, vegan sour cream has become my new ‘go to’ base for mayonnaise replacement!

Makes approx. 2 cups

CABBAGE WEIGHT REDUCTION SOUPS (WRS)

FROM THE SITE OF FAT-FREE CHEF:


1 – AFC Purple Cabbage Weight Reduction Soup (WRS) Another fabulous cabbage soup, hitting all the right notes. Weight reduction or not, I love cabbage soup – ala Sharon! Makes a lot


2 – AFC 5 SPICE TOMATO BEAN SOUP Fat-Free and still delicious! Cabbage, celery and carrots combined with Roman beans in a spicy tomato sauce. Salsa and fresh lime give it an extra kick and AFC 5 SPICE ramps up the flavor profile! Makes 11-1/2 cups


3 – AFC GREENS AND BEANS CABBAGE WEIGHT REDUCTION SOUP ( WRS) Some of us would prefer some options for the Weight Reduction Soup (WRS). When we tire of one soup, there’s another style, just as tasty and effective in weight control, to peak the interest of our palate! This WRS does that! Makes 38 cups


4 – ESCAROLE AND NAPA CABBAGE WEIGHT REDUCTION SOUP (WRS) Rosemary, garlic, mustard and coriander flavor this Napa cabbage and escarole soup along with parsnip, onion, carrot and turnip. It doesn’t take long to decide if you like it!  Makes 28 cups


5 – GREEN SOUP – WEIGHT REDUCTION SOUP (WRS) Unlike most of my other soups, this one has more solids than broth by design. I want the fiber. It’s a simple soup, flavored simply but effectively. Bland could come to mind, but again that was by design. Soothing is what I feel when enjoying the simplicity. It also sports a chew, that’s fashionable and comfortable! Makes 19 cups


6 – LOW FAT STEWED TOMATO CABBAGE SOUP I don’t know why the love of cabbage is attributed to Polish People, but they obviously knew a good thing when they cultivated it! If you like tomato soup you’ll love this one. The strong tomato flavor somehow enhances all the other vegetables. Even the kids will like! Makes 21 cups


7 – MUSHROOM MISO NOODLE BOWL Three kinds of mushroom sauteed with green cabbage, red pepper, garlic, scallion and ginger. Combined with spinach in a broth flavored with white wine miso, rosemary and smoked paprika! Ladled over thin linguini. Garnish with radish, scallion and drizzles of extra virgin olive oil and sesame oil. A culinary pleasure! Makes approx. 14 cups broth minus the noodles


8 – WEIGHT REDUCTION SOUP (WRS) FAT-FREE CABBAGE SOUP  This is my new favorite soup. I love everything about it. It’s simple, easy, doesn’t cost much and it makes a ton. This will be Steve’s and my lunch for the week. Today, for lunch he had 5 cups. This soup is definitely a keeper! I’m going to reduce my weight by eating this soup and lots of it. I just know it to be true, before I even start my WRS program! Ready? There is no part of any animal nor any fat in this soup! Makes approx. 45 cups

RE: Preparation Time For Recipes

It takes a lot longer to develop a recipe than it does to replicate a recipe.

For that reason the prep times are not given.

To estimate the time for each procedure after the fact would not be accurate enough for my tastes.

The number of ingredients aren’t necessarily an indicator of preparation time.

Holiday Nog And Apple Cider Pie

HOLIDAY NOG AND APPLE CIDER PIE

Ever wonder why the people over at Kraft foods didn’t expand the JELL-O brand? They make a gelatin, a pudding and a pie filling for cream pies. For three separate desserts. Why didn’t anyone try to combine the qualities of gelatin with the qualities of pudding? Well, tradition never stopped AFC Global from experimenting with a new concept. Here are the results! Combining a juice with the cream produces a gelatin-like cream. You don’t need the actual gelatin nor agar to produce something unique yet familiar and enjoyable!

Oh, and served in a carob cookie cider pie crust! Topped with dairy free whip cream!

The Ordination Of The Plant

Plants like to be eaten. There’s no pain in it for them. They enjoy entering your system as food, medicine and nutrients to make you strong, efficient and happy to be alive.

That’s fun for them. They’re fulfilling their purpose. When you mix them with animals in your gut they rebel. They don’t want any animal taking away what they are preordained to do for you.

Plants have the keys to all your cells and they are working them. They strut for you. Take me. Take me. I’m the best. I can do for you what no animal can. We’re a perfect fit. I want to be the one you choose.

Animals don’t want you, we do. Animals resist when you hurt them. You can’t hurt us. And by the way, stop hurting them. We’re here for them too, to make them strong, efficient and happy to be alive.

Stop getting your food signals mixed up. They’re not begging you to kill and eat them. We are the ones begging you to pick us. That’s one of our most important functions and missions: to continue the growth of plant-eating species.

Say no to animals and yes to plants for a stronger, more efficient, happy to be alive person!

We have roots, animals don’t. That’s what differentiates us as food.

AFC Mushroom Bolognese Sauce


AFC MUSHROOM BOLOGNESE SAUCE ©

One of Steve’s favorite sauces was a bolognese sauce, essentially meat sauce with tomatoes, garlic and a bunch of other stuff. Both our mothers made it, but didn’t call it that. Spaghetti sauce they called it. All spaghetti sauce back then had meat in it. Times change, but sometimes we still like to go back to our childhood favorites, while now absent the cruelty. Red rice is our go to meat for tomato sauces now. Give it a try. See for yourself!

Makes 10-1/2 cups
