Notes: This recipe calls for chicken but I replaced it with seitan. Seitan is a great substitute for poultry if you want to make a recipe vegetarian or vegan.

Notes: This was one of my favorite cookies as a kid. You’ll notice that I haven’t been rating the baking recipes as high as the savory dishes. That’s because I’ve been attempting to make them semi-healthy. Replacing butter with apple sauce works for me taste wise but replacing all purpose flour with alternatives hasn’t worked well for me unless the original recipe was written using a flour substitute. The lesson is when I do bake I should use the less healthy ingredients.

Notes: For pasta recipes, I’ve replaced white flour pasta with Explore Cusine brand pasta. They are high protein and low carb which are great for people who are trying to get more protein from plant sources. They are also gluten free and tasty.
