Eliminate the Fat

Low fat vegetarian meals and recipes are great but do you know what's better? Fat free vegetarian recipes! As you probably know, many vegetarian foods are naturally fat free. Search the web or check out some great fat free cookbooks for ideas on how to make fat free dishes.

Here's a great recipe for a fat free pasta bake to start with:

  • 1/2 lb. wheat pasta
  • 4 egg whites an equivalent amount of egg white replacer
  • 1/3 cup fat free Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large thickly sliced Portobello mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup Soy-based “meat” crumbles
  • 2 tablespoons of Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Water or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup fat free cottage cheese
  • Fat free Spaghetti Sauce
  • Fat free Mozzarella Cheese, to taste

To begin, sauté mushrooms, “meat,” and garlic in the balsamic vinegar, adding water or broth to the mixture to prevent it from drying out (until mushrooms are cooked) then allow liquid to evaporate. Prepare the spaghetti according to the directions, drain and then combine with the egg whites and Parmesan cheese.

Put the spaghetti mixture into a large pan (pie pans work best) and spread it evenly throughout the pan. Spread the cottage cheese over the noodle crust, and then put the mushroom mixture on top. Put enough spaghetti sauce over the other ingredients to cover them. Bake the entire mixture at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top for 5 additional minutes (until cheese melts). Let pie cool before serving.
