View Full Version : simple vegetable based recipes without nuts
10-10-2007, 01:59 AM
I am looking for simple vegetable based recipes without any nuts or seeds. I do not have a dehydrator. I have a food processor but it doesn't work too well.
Here's a great chili recipe. It says to put everything in the food processor but I hand chop the peppers & celery etc because I like mine chunky and my fp makes them too mushy (I do put the carrot in the food processor though). The second half of the recipe needs a fp. You need to put the soaked sundried tomatoes and avocado etc in the fp to get smooth and then you mix with the chopped veggies. No need to dehydrate, I don't. Very good, filling & no nuts or seeds!

"Okay- the best chili in the world.... I ran around to everyone and made them try this- oh, it's so good. By the way, I didn't make this recipe up unfortunately, I got it from Cousins book: Rainbow Green. I would love to take credit for it but alas- not my recipe- just our great good fortune to eat it!!!!!!!!!
1 red pepper
1/4 to 1/2 cup leek
Add about 1/4 cup olive oil and a touch of Celtic salt, stir it up and put it in your dehydrator for an hour.
During that time in the food processor add:
1/2 cup soaked sun dried tomatoes (I add more)
1 T ginger
little more Celtic salt
2 T Chili powder ( I add more)
2 t ground cumin
and cayenne (anywhere from a titch to 2 t of the stuff. HOT!)
Mix this with the veggies above and put it back in the dehydrator for one more hour.
So good, so quick. Yum."

There are tons of recipes in Ani Phyo's book which don't contain nuts or seeds, and the ones I've tried have been delish. She has a recipe for wilted spinach salad with mustard seed dressing and marinated onions that is REALLY good, and so easy.....
Wilted Spinach Salad with Marinated Onions and Mustard Seed Dressing by Ani Phyo
makes 4 servings
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
1 tbs. apple cider vinegar
1 tbs. Bragg Liquid Aminos or Nama Shoyu
Pinch black pepper
Mustard Seed Dressing
1 tbs. soft dates or 1 tbs. agave syrup, maple syrup or honey
3 tbs. apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. mustard seeds
1/2 tsp sea salt
8 cups of spinach
2 carrots, julienned
Pinch black pepper
To marinate onions, combine onions with vinegar, Bragg's, and black pepper. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the rest of the salad.
To make the dressing, if you're using dates, soak them in 2 tbs. of water for 5 min., or until soft. Mash together the dates and water until it becomes a thick syrupy paste. Pour syrup, vinegar, oil, mustard seeds, and salt in small bowl and mix well.
For salad, place spinach and julienned carrots in a large bowl. Pour in Marinated Onions, including the marinade. Toss with Mustard Seed Dressing.
To serve, top tossed salad with a pinch or two of black pepper. Set aside for 5 min. or more to allow time for wilting. Or, you can eat right away if you're impatient!
Salad mix will keep for 1 day, dressing will keep for 3 to 4 days, and Marinated Onions will keep for 1 day in the fridge when each are stored separately.
I like to add other vegs, like tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, cukes, etc., and top with hemp seeds, as I usually have this for lunch. I also like my salad really wilted, so let it wilt over night.

thanks for the great suggestions! unfortunately i'm allergic to tomatoes so i can't make the chili. it's too bad b/c there are so many great tomato recipes. i actually tried organic heirloom tomatoes and i was more allergic to those than the normal ones, which surprised me.
i saw the gorilla sandwich post. they look great! the spinach salad recipe looks great too! what is the name of ani phyo's book?
