I often use fruit to sweeten my desserts and breads. Hey, it is no-fat and it’s vegan! One of my best fruit friends is St. Dalfour. The company makes a variety of nice fruit spreads and conserves. Their many flavors have inspired a number of new recipes in my kitchen. Today I want to highlight the orange marmalade! With its sunny flavor and fruity texture, it makes a great foundation for several of my staple no-fat vegan treats, including my own version of Aussie Bites, as well as a beautiful vanilla-orange mousse that can be finished with a marmalade glaze. St. Dalfour uses only grape juice concentrate for sweetening, with a bit of lemon juice and fruit pectin. The result is a bright, juicy spoonful of sweetness to go with your morning toast and french press, or to inspire your new culinary effort of the day! I get mine at Whole Foods, but some Walmarts also carry it.
What is happening here? I'm a Seattle native who has adopted a diet of 100% no-oil plant-based nutrition. My guide? Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's book "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease". I've been given an alternative to the chronic illness that has plagued three generations of my family... heart disease, diabetes, stroke. This blog is my personal log of how to cook, what to eat, and where to dine out as a no-fat vegan in the Pacific Northwest.
