About this Cook
I am following a mostly vegan, gluten and fat reduced lifestyle. I am working to keep all oils to a minimum and use only extra virgin unrefined olive and coconut oil and I recently added organic, pastured ghee (hence the "mostly" plus I use honey & Worcestershire). This is compatible with Dr. McDougall's diet which works for me to normalize my pre-diabetes and keep my weight stable.
My favorite things to cook
Fresh, in-season vegetables in various tasty presentations.
My cooking triumphs
Made perfect gluten free bread.
My cooking tragedies
Lost my recipe for perfect gluten free bread

Cauliflower Soup with Blue Cheese Fritters
When I see Chef John, I know it will be high fat. Since I don't want to look like Chef John, I changed the recipe. I didn't make the fritters, I sauteed the onions, garlic and chopped mushrooms in 1/2 tablespoon of butter and subbed silken tofu for the heavy cream. Much healthier and weight friendly. And it was very good.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Eggplant
Good way to hide eggplant since I couldn't really taste it and cut down on fat. I skipped the bacon and the oil.
