I love her blog too and have made many good things from there. Regarding her fat-free title, most of her stuff is but she does have a few treats on it. This is from her FAQ page:
What’s this “fatfree” business all about?
In general, I don’t cook with refined fats (oil, margarine, and shortening). This simply means that instead of sautéing in oil, I use water or broth. In baking, I substitute apple sauce or flax seeds or some other substance for margarine, butter, or shortening. I do use a little sesame oil now and then because a little bit imparts a lot of flavor. And once in a very long while, I go crazy and make something with a little olive oil in it, but this is rare, and I don’t use whole heaping gobs of it.
Wait a minute…I saw a recipe with coconut milk…and another with walnuts. Those aren’t fat-free ingredients!
You’re very observant! Yes, I sometimes use lite coconut milk (though I’m trying to cut down), and I do include avocados, nuts, and seeds in my diet as forms of healthy, unrefined fat. This blog probably should have been called “Oil-free Vegan Kitchen,” but I didn’t like the way that sounded.
Or low-fat vegan kitchen.
