Along the lines off your carbonated water suggestion, i make home made ginger ale by using sparkling water and adding a couple slices of fresh ginger, and a splash of apple cider vinegar. You get the lovely ginger ale taste without the sugar.
Also, i substitute pumpkin seeds in recipes that ask for cashews due to a nut allergy. They work great if you soak them and then blend as a creamy sauce. (E.g. As a pasta sauce cook some tomatoes, spinach, garlic, and then add in blended mixture of 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds with 1 cup water and it is an amazing creamy sauce).
By the way, i dont use pasta, but rather use zucchini noodles which you can make with a spiralizer or a potato peeler. Just soak the “noodles ” in hot water for a couple mins then just add sauce and it is good to go!
I have missed yogurt so will try the coconut yogurt.
I have used cauli rice but after the food processor step I saute it. then freeze it. When defrosted it is mushy. I will try the freezing Before the saute. Susanne
Love those suggestions Michele!
