Mushroom 'Sausage' Gravy
Good 3.6/5

Growing up in the South, sausage gravy was a staple on our breakfast table, so I wanted to create a healthier version--with a secret ingredient.

Turkey Bacon Breakfast Rolls
Very Good 4.2/5

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.

Not-Fried Shrimp with Japanese Cocktail Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(33 ratings)

Biting into a perfectly crispy fried shrimp is so satisfying. The 10 grams of fat per serving? Not so satisfying. This dish has all the crunch, with much less fat.

Orange Chicken
Very Good 4.0/5
(133 ratings)

With this dish you get a serving of fruit in every portion. Dice the orange if you prefer smaller pieces and--if you're feeling creative--use a vegetable peeler to create curls of orange zest.

Cocoa Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Very Good 4.0/5
(195 ratings)

This dish inspired by Costa Rican spices seems exotic, but it uses spices and ingredients you already have around the house: coffee, cocoa and cinnamon. You'll wonder why you've been relegating these flavorings to dessert!

Slow Cooker Beef Roast with Vegetables
Very Good 4.4/5
(64 ratings)

Try using an English Cut Beef Roast. It is economical and flavorful. This cut of meat comes from the shoulder or neck area of the animal.

Cool-as-a-Cucumber Raita
Very Good 4.5/5
(24 ratings)

This creamy, tangy dip does double duty: with mint, it's a perfect pair with Greek fare; with coriander and cumin, it cools down spicy Indian curries.

Quinoa-Sweet Potato Casserole
Good 3.7/5

Petite Pecan Tarts
Very Good 4.5/5

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.5/5
(50 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.

Veggie-Packed Tomato Sauce
Very Good 4.0/5
(29 ratings)

What? Canned tomatoes in a tomato sauce? Yes, that's right. Garden tomatoes are only available for a short time, but crushed canned tomatoes are on shelves year-round and packed with flavor.

Three-Cheese Macaroni from 'The SparkPeople Cookbook'
