Simple Pasta Salad
Well, I think I made it even better! We made my roasted vegetables today (recipe submitted today), and added them instead of the tomatoes and cucumbers. Wow! Note that if you can find Club House's One Step Parmesean & Herb Seasoning, you can substitute a bottle of that for the parm and italian seasoning. Here's the roasted veggie recipe (it's easy): 8 cups chopped veggies (your choice, such as zucchini, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers, mushrooms, etc), marinated in a bottle of your favourite dressing, suggestions are parmesean basil, greek, or sundried tomato. Marinate for two hours, tossing frequently. Grill on medium BBQ or in oven at 350 for 30 mins or until tender-crisp. Add to pasta salad. Yum!

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup
Excellent! Normally, I avoid anything marked "low carb" like the plague, but gave this one a shot. Every time I make this, I'm honour bound to bring some in to my staff, as they absolutely LOVE it. If I don't have three leeks, I substitute an onion. I also increased the garlic (well, doubled it, really) because I love garlic. It's fantastic!! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili
I, like other reviewers, could not find condensed black bean soup, so I used a ready to serve version. I also made several alterations which resulted in the best veggie chili I've ever made! I didn't add the italian spices, using only salt and a lot of chili powder. I added two onions instead of one, added one package of Yves Veggie Ground Round (a soy fake ground beef like product), used one red, one yellow, and one green pepper (not to mention the six jalepenos), two diced portabella mushrooms, and since I wasn't sure if the canned tomatoes were diced or pureed, added a 28 oz can of each. It was fantastic!!!

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
