Vegetarian Vindaloo
Very Good 4.2/5
(53 ratings)

Vindaloo is one of my favorite dishes in the world! This spicy Indian curry can be made vegetarian or with meat and is packed with spices. For those new to Indian cooking, I simplified the spice list, choosing five you might already have on hand.

Baked Falafel
Very Good 4.1/5
(58 ratings)

Use all chickpeas if you don't have fava beans. If you use canned beans, the sodium levels will be higher so omit the salt.

Quinoa-Sweet Potato Casserole
Good 3.7/5

This recipe came about because I had just made vegetable enchiladas and had leftovers, plus quinoa from earlier in the week. Thankfully, this experiment yielded a hearty, delicious meal.

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
Very Good 4.1/5

Butternut squash helps slim down this macaroni and cheese. You can't taste it, and it boosts the nutritional value of the dish!

Goat Cheese Alfredo Pasta
Good 3.2/5
(26 ratings)

Even a lunch portion of fettuccine Alfredo has 800 calories and 48 grams of fat. Mine has less than 1/2 the calories, 1/5 the fat, and plenty of veggies, too.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(78 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

Garden Fresh Lasagna
Very Good 4.4/5
(32 ratings)

I love rich, cheesy lasagna, but in the summer when vegetables are at their peak, cheese overwhelms the dish. Adding plenty of fresh vegetables to your regular lasagna for a healthy, light summer supper.

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.
