Kathy’s Kale Chips

Here's a standard recipe for a tasty, crunchy treat that is a good alternative to chips.
Kale is a darling of plant-based eating, because as a cruciferous, colorful vegetable of the cabbage family, it is a powerhouse of antioxidents and other phytonutrients, which fight against disease - cancer, inflammatory, as well as vascular.  But hey, all cruciferous vegetables are powerhouses!
Consider drinking water with this lovely, crunchy snack since this is a dried whole food.

Walnut Mushroom Pâté - Fake Chopped Liver

So easy yet flavorful - Use this savory spread as a filling for wraps or sandwiches, on top of rice snaps or oil-free whole-grain crackers, or on a whole-grain bagel. 
Experiment with spices or chopped celery, gr or peppers to add chunk, to make it your own!

Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms

No need for oil in pesto.  You will appreciate this lighter, flavorful and very versitile version, in its elegant placement upon mushrooms

Hummus Plate

Hummus or Middle Eastern chickpea spread is so satisfying and versitile, as a snack with veggies and rice snaps, in a wrap or sandwich, a stuffing for mushroom appetizers, or diluted for a salad dressing!  It's easy to keep it low-fat by abstaining from adding oils.  If you need to control weight, avoid further added fat by eliminating the tahini (sesame butter).
