This particular recipe isn’t totally salt free, as I use a Garlic & Herb Seasoning that I love. For a no salt Parmesan, leave out the salt and replace with garlic powder, onion powder, and lemon juice powder, OR replace with Benson’s Table Tasty Salt Substitute.

Chocolate Ginger Balls

Kate JanzenChocolate, Desserts, Essential Oils, SweetLeave a Comment

This is a warming little treat, filled with the richness of nuts, chocolate, and the heat of ginger. It’s fairly quick to make, and keeps for weeks in the freezer… that is, if they last that long. (And no, they don’t freeze. In fact, the balls are the perfect consistency when kept there). Chocolate. Ginger. What more is there to … Read More

The sneaky trick to this delicious delight is using fresh vegetable juice for the broth. It makes the flavor far more robust and therefore lessens the need for salt. I use Southwest Spice Blend as the seasoning, which does have some salt in it. But you can easily leave that out and add your own spices.

This recipe uses a special ingredient, which isn’t required, but highly recommended. Southwest Spice Blend.

Imagine lemon pepper chicken, but not at all. More like chicken poppers, but with cauliflower. Caulifoppers? This recipe started with the need for a breaded chicken substitute in my rendition of “Sweet & Sour Orange Chicken,” (for the orange sauce, go here) and ended up as a go-to meal all on it’s own. There are several different ways to cook … Read More

Chocolate Chia Seed Brownies

Rich. Chewy. Smooth. Chocolaty. Without using refined white or brown sugar, be careful — you’ll want to eat the whole batch in one go. This recipe was originally created for using the leftover pulp from making almond milk, hence it calling for almond pulp. But fear not if you don’t have that lying around. Gluten free flour will do just … Read More
