Last night we had company. I made this pasta (with bow-tie noodles) and this french bread. I made a garlic spread for the bread that turned out really good. Sorry, no picture.

1/4 c. vegan margarine (I used Earth Balance)
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 t. dried parsley
1 T. nutritional yeast

• Mix well.
• Cut loaf of French bread lengthwise.
• Spread with thin layer of garlic spread.
• Cut bread into pieces of desired size, but don't cut all the way through.
• Place loaves onto cookie sheet.
• Broil until top is golden brown (5-7 minutes).

I can't believe these haven't been posted on here before. I think my brothers eat about 6 of them every day- they are seriously good!

2 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. ginger
1 t. cloves
1 t. cinnamon
1/4-1/2 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1/4 c. + 2 T. baby food prunes (1 small Gerber container)
1 c. sucanat
1 1/2 T. water
1/4 c. molasses
  • Mix sucanat, prunes, molasses, and water.
  • Add the spices.
  • Add the flour.
  • Refrigerate dough for a few hours (if you can wait that long!)
  • Roll into ball, dip the top in sugar (evaporated cane juice)
  • Smash with your hand and put on lightly greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
(Well, I just turned a perfectly fat-free cookie into a very not-so-fat-free one.  But, oh my!  It's delicious with this coconut cream on it!)

Leafy greens are so important! Here's a great short article about what they can do for you. Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get enough!
