I love black beans, and I threw this together in a minute in my food chopper. It's just one can of black beans with a few spices added in, then ground up. I put it on Triscuit crackers and it's wonderful!
This can also be used to make "black bean pizza" when put on whole wheat bagels or bread or rolls, topped with cheddar cheese and baked until cheese melts.Submitted by INNERSKINNY
I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!Submitted by STEPH2003
Found this one years ago in a healthy magazine. 10 years later it is still one of our favorites and my college son now cooks it for him and his buddies. We take the leftovers and use it in a tortilla the next day for lunch with sour cream and cheese.Submitted by MJWILBANKS
We love the rich, sweet and salty flavor of the icing on this decadent chocolate cake! Top with fresh fruit and serve warm with vanilla ice cream.Submitted by LRUSSELLFAMILY
A lower calorie brownie with a chocolate-butterscotch taste This recipe recommends the use of a special flavoring called butavan, which has a butterscotch-like flavor. It can be ordered online, but is difficult to find in stores. If you prefer, you can omit the butavan and just use pure vanilla extract and/or butter flavoring then substitute the chocolate chips for butterscotch chips for about 5 more calories per serving to get a similar flavor. Or, skip the butterscotch flavor and just use vanilla and butter flavoring. :)Submitted by ZOOBOOZEL
If you like cilantro, you will LOVE this salad!
My husband, who is a chef, makes it for me. It's a flavorful, low calorie salad that is very refreshing! It has a high water content so it's very good on hot days.Submitted by SOUL_FOOD
