A few months ago I posted a recipe for Super Garlicky Yogurt Sauce. Since then, I’ve used the sauce almost every day… on potatoes, noodles and veggies.
But any food, even a yummy one, gets boring if it’s eaten too often. Because of that, I’ve done a little experimenting, and I’ve come up with a delicious and simple variation. I call it Onion-Yogurt Sauce.
So far, I’ve only used the Onion-Yogurt Sauce as a topping for burritos, both plain and mixed with salsa. Both ways were great.
Next, I’m looking forward to trying a dollop as a garnish for my bean soup. I’m guessing the result will be wonderful.

I make this Delicious Vegan Italian Meat Sauce all the time. I use it on rolls, noodles, and rice. It’s very inexpensive and very tasty!

3 oz. pureed tomatoes
6 oz. water
1/3 green pepper, finely chopped
1/3 onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Microwave burger for 1 minute. Allow to cool for a few minutes, and using your fingers, break burger into tiny pieces the size of ground meat.
2. Pour 1 teaspoon of olive oil onto a non-stick pan and turn flame to medium. Cook the onion till it begin to brown. Add the green pepper and soy burger. Saute till slightly seared. Lower heat.
4. Stir in the bread crumbs, Italian herbs and spices, tomatoes and water.
5. Cook a 3-5 minutes on medium high or till sauce thickens.
6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
7. Serve on rolls.
Note: You can substitute 3/4 tablespoon dried basil, 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder for the Italian seasonings.
A couple of weeks ago, I found a recipe for Salsa Cheesy Fries over at Lazy Chef Recipes. Since then, I’ve cooked that dish several times, after making a couple of changes to both ingredients and instructions. I also came up with a few new toppings. The main recipe plus the two variations below are the end result.
1 1/2 pounds matchstick fries
1 cup medium strength salsa
1 cup shredded cheese
salt, to taste
non-stick spray or oil
Do not preheat oven. Using non-stick spray or oil, prepare a baking pan.
Place the matchstick fries into the baking pan. Sprinkle with salt.
Top with salsa and then cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes, stir fries well to distribute salsa and cheese, and then bake for another 10-15 minutes.
Add additional salt if needed.
Note: When writing this recipe, I included the quantity of cheese and salsa that I enjoy. After making this dish the first time, feel free to experiment till you find the fry to cheese to salsa proportions that suit your own taste.
Variation 1: Substitute 2/3 of a cup of medium taco sauce for the salsa. If using hot taco sauce, add only 1/2 cup.
Variation 2: Substitute spicy tomato sauce/pasta sauce for the salsa.
Description: I’ve been obsessed with making my own Rock Candy since I was a small child. Our class went on a field trip to a large indoor farmer’s market (Lexington Market) and rock candy was one of the few things we were allowed to purchase. Yum!
