Compliant Caesar Salad
By Cathy Fisher of StraightUpFood.com
I like this recipe when I want a fattening Caesar salad without the fat and salt. The bell pepper adds some additional color and flavor. You can top the salad with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavour. And air-fried potato cubes or roasted chickpeas add a change in texture. I have adjusted this recipe to be oil and fat free.
You can buy pre-washed romaine lettuce in packages of three. The dressing makes enough to dress three salads. And one can of chickpeas can be divided into three parts as well. I eat this giant salad over three consecutive days.
Ingredients for Salad (1 serving)
Ingredients for the Dressing (3 servings)
*Note: Using a plastic knife to cut the Romaine stops it from going brown. Or hand ripping the lettuce also can reduce oxidation. If you will be eating this salad over several days, prepare you lettuce this way, but store it separate from the dressing until you are ready to serve.

COMPLIANT CAESAR CHICKPEAS
These are a great addition to your salad. They add extra protein and are tasty on their own. Use them on your salad or make this recipe for people that love snacking on nuts. It's a healthy low-calorie alternative.
When they are completely cool, store them in an airtight container at room temperature so they don’t get soggy.

This oil free dressing is delicious. It goes well on any salad, but it is particularly well with the Greek Inspired Tabouleh and the Complaint ‘Dry’ Greek Salad.
I have created this dressing with two versions. One is a standard dressing and the other is a creamy version.

Faux Honey Mustard Dressing
Here’s Chef AJ’s recipe for honey mustard dressing. It is tasty and creamy and a very healthy alternative to mayonnaise in a potato salad, coleslaw or any other salad recipe. I have adapted it from ounces to make it a little easier.
This actually works better as a two-day process.
Compliant Lentil Bolognese Sauce
This compliant Bolognese gives you that yummy Italian flavour without oil or salt. I serve this over rice, or spaghetti squash noodles or zoodles.
Note: You can use no-salt Italian seasoning to replace dried parsley, oregano and basil if that’s what you have at home.

White Bean Cheez Sauce
This is the sauce that you can put on your baked potatoes and steamed vegetables. It is absolutely delicious and will keep for about 2 weeks in the fridge.
At the beginning of this chapter, I said that on Friday you will soak the beans overnight. On Saturday you will cook the beans, then after they cool you can make this cheez sauce. This recipe is super simple. Only the beans are the time-consuming part. In a pinch you could use canned cannellini beans. But the sauce will not be as creamy as when you use small white navy beans.
Blend until smooth. You can store in glass jars in the fridge. This also freezes well but don’t freeze in jars, they tend to crack. Use one of your 4-cup glass storage containers.
