Roasted Garlic & Feta Mushrooms with Runny Egg
Very Good 4.9/5
(17 ratings)

I know this one sounds a little strange, but give it a try; it's a great source of protein. The sweetness of the roasted garlic pairs really nicely with the feta, and the egg yolk binds all of the flavors into one cohesive package. If you're squeamish about undercooked eggs or can't eat egg yolks, this probably isn't the recipe for you as I've tried it with the egg cooked differently and never found it as good.

This is a nice Mediterranean style dish of vegetables with chickpeas and feta cheese. I like to eat it with fresh spinach, while my husband prefers to eat it with pasta.

For variety, you can also add some different vegetables such as tomatoes and peppers to the dish. Fresh herbs instead of dried can also enhance the taste.

Creamy Tomato Gorgonzola Soup with Fresh Basil
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

I love cream of tomato soup with gorgonzola, but I'm not up for the usual 500 calories a serving with over 25 grams of fat. I love this recipe and it has all the flavor of the original. It's high in fiber and protein. Each serving size of this soup is ~13-15 ounces. If you only eat 1 cup of soup as your seving the nutritional info is 140 calories and 4.7g of fat.

This is a fast, easy and delicious way to get in fresh raw broccoli. I adapted the recipe from the Whole Foods Broccoli Crunch Salad. The ingredients are simple and relatively inexpensive but they charge $8.49 a pound for it....much cheaper to make at home....and fresher.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

I was playing around with ingredients tonight and came up with this one. I love a good fresh vegetable soup and wanted some extra protein in there without adding meat, so I threw in some beans. I think it has just the right amount of flavor, but is mild enough to allow you to really taste and appreciate all the wonderful fresh vegetables.

Place a large nonstick skillit over medium-high heat. When hot, add the olive oil, then the mushrooms and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, untill the mushrooms are tender and excess moisture is evaporated, 6 to 8 minutes.

Add Worcestershire and pepper and cook until any additional moisture is evaporated and the mushrooms are lightly browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Season with salt and serve.

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