My whole family loves these! Although they may seem small (considering the size of muffin we can get in a bakery) but we always add a helping of fruit or yogurt for breakfast. Yummy!

Even my hubby loves this recipe. I try to keep it on hand for quick lunches and easy dinners. It's great on toasted bread with soy cheese and a big tomato slice.

Black Bean Hummus
Very Good 4.2/5

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.

Very Good 4.7/5
(16 ratings)

This is the most basic of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with either olive oil or tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content. Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.

Maple-Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Very Good 4.3/5
(46 ratings)

It's the perfect time of year for this recipe! Sweet potatoes are one of the most delicious (and nutritious!) winter comfort foods, and the warm maple syrup flavor of this dish is the perfect complement to cold weather. Choose medium sweet potatoes with firm, unblemished skins — they'll have the best flavor!

Amaranth, Quinoa, and Corn Chowder
Very Good 4.3/5
(3 ratings)

Ingredients indigenous to the New World, like amaranth, quinoa, and corn, have a natural affinity. In this soup, the amaranth and quinoa add substance and subtle flavor variations to the more familiar taste of sweet corn.

Spaghetti Squash Bake
Good 3.5/5
(2 ratings)

If you never had spaghetti squash, you are in for a treat! It looks like a really large yellow squash, and when it’s raw, it looks like pumpkin. It has the thick skin and gooey inside with seeds. But, if you bake it, the flesh can be pulled apart into spaghetti-like strands. It’s a little crunchier than pasta and there's a variety of ways to make this dish!
