Vegetarian French Onion Soup

Vegetarian French Onion Soup

French onion soup, while meatless, is generally not vegetarian-friendly. Not only does the broth have a beef base, but the soup is covered in Gruyere cheese. Gruyere cheese is often made with animal rennet. I become jealous when my husband orders French onion soup when we dine out, so I decided to make a me-friendly version at home.

Creamy Parmesan Salad Dressing

Creamy Parmesan Salad Dressing

If you take a look at the ingredients on a typical bottle of salad dressing, you may realize you probably shouldn’t drizzle that across your otherwise healthy salad. The good news is that making dressing at home is easy. After a trip to the store today and looking at the ingredients, I decided homemade is the way to go. I’ll be working to add salad dressing recipes to the site, but let’s get started with this creamy dressing.

Yogurt takes center stage in this salad dressing, which means no guilt! Watching calories? Don’t add cheese to your salad, since it’s found its way into the dressing.
