I was told by my Dr that I can't eat anything soy because the cancer I had thrives off of hormones and soy causes hormones to be produced. So now I am in search of no soy recipes. Researching how to have a Vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner now!
When shopping always check the ingredients of everything because soy products are in a ton of stuff! I was shocked! Even Veggie Burgers has soy in it!

Then we took a whole wheat ready to cook pizza dough, let it sit for 20 minutes.
Spray pizza pan with extra virgin oil spray, sprinkle brown rice flour over the pan, knead the dough and spread it out.
Put pizza sauce on it the start adding whatever you want on it (non meat products:
baby spinach salad leaves
black eyed peas
Cook for 15 - 20 minutes.
Wow, was it great!!!!!!!
[Normally I used Taco Sauce (mild) but I didn't have any in the house to check the ingredients so I improvised]
~9x12 inch pan
~ Aluminium foil
~Light Ragu sauce (No sugar added, Tomato and Basil - has no soy)
~defrosted mixed veggies (I use a lot to make it look like meat sauce)
~Whole wheat burrito shells
~Low Fat cheese ( 8 oz)
~Cumin to taste
~Minced Garlic to taste
~Add any other spices you want
~Heat oven to 350 degrees F and place a long cookie pan on bottom shelf in case of boil over.
~Mix sauce, spices, garlic, and veggies in a frying pan. Cook on medium low heat and stir occasionally to keep from burning.
~Add a layer of sauce to the 9x12 pan.
~Add shells to cover sauce.
~Sprinkle a half of bag of the cheese over shells.
~Repeat two more times, make sure the sauce is on top. If you don't think there is enough sauce left then add a small can of tomato sauce to what is left and stir it up. Sometimes I just add some water.
~Cover pan with aluminium foil.
~Cook for 25 minutes.
~Take foil off of pan and let sit for 10 - 15 minutes so it can thicken and cool.
This is soooo good! ( I am making this for dinner tonight, in fact it just finished cooking and the house smells wonderful!)
If anyone wants to add no soy recipes here it would be greatly appreciated!
