A low-calorie option for quiche-lovers. In my opinion there is not much to recommend it if one is not dieting.

Herb and Bean Bake

I enjoyed the flavour of this dish, but I disliked intensely the texture of the seitan. It would be a good dish without it. Tofu for vegans or meat or poultry for carnivores would be good substitutes. As often in this book, the seasoning can be strengthened considerably.

Carrot, Oat and Tofu Burgers

Date tried:October 30, 2017
Yield: 4 servings
Time needed: 40 minutes

One of the best veggie burger recipes I have found. Good texture, holds together well, nice flavour. Even my grandson, who is in a stage of being very picky about food, ate one happily with no urging. I think it is overestimating to say this amount serves four. I got seven patties from this, so two each for adults who would gladly have eaten more.

I chose to serve these with pita bread and put lots of condiments on the table for people to pick and choose their favourites. There was also a bowl of baby carrots and a plate of sliced tomatoes, but, unfortunately, I did not have any lettuce or sprouts on hand. Those would have been a great addition.

Teriyaki Salad

Time needed:30 minutes + time to chill

This is a fine, satisfying salad, not to be missed. Not difficult to make either. Straightforward chopped vegetables in a simple vinaigrette dressing. On a hot summer day make this in the cool of the morning and pull out of the fridge for a ready-to-eat supper.
