Very Good 4.3/5

These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.

I threw this together tonight with what I had in my house. You can reduce the sodium by draining and rinsing the beans (not accounted for here), but if you do that, you'll want to add about 1/4 cup of low-sodium vegetable or chicken stock to give it some moisture while it cooks. Play around and add more vegetables/seasonings, this is just what I had at the time.

I make this in a big batch for my lunches, the tofu has loads of protein and really soaks up the flavor of the sauce. I also add in hot sauce or chili flakes, as spicy foods make you feel full faster, but it isnt really needed

Aviyal (Indian vegetable stew with coconut & yogurt)
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

This is a peasant dish from Kerala. Daily fare, in other words, made with whatever vegetables are in season. Since it's a Kerala dish, it's got two very typical ingredients: coconut and plantains. The rest of the dish is built around these two stars of the Kerala kitchen. If you can find them, use a few pieces of drumsticks (NOT meat - these are a vegetable from Southern India!!) - you may be able to find them frozen in your local Asian supermarket or Indian store. Curry leaves, too, will be available right beside those drumsticks at any reputable Indian store - you may even luck out and be able to buy fresh curry leaves at most Indian stores.

Use a mixture of root vegetables and squashes for the best effect. The recipe here is not what you'd make in India - hadn't seen zucchini and turnips when I was growing up, but, as with all peasant dishes, it's a *very* adaptable dish. Throw in whatever suits YOUR tastebuds!

Use coconut oil if you've got it - it really gives a most authentic flavour to the dish. Canola works just as well, but has less flavour.

I LOVE this smoothie, and it is low in can drink the whole concoction for a snack, and it will fill you up for a long time. I am a big smoothie fan for that reason....they are a filling snack, and nutritious to boot. I like to have them in the afternoon in the time between lunch and dinner, because that is when I am my hungriest. It fills me up and keeps me from grabbing junk to eat.

Spicy Black Bean Burgers
Very Good 4.2/5

These burgers are spiced to perfection. To make them even spicier, you could melt jalapeno soy cheese on each patty and serve topped with salsa.
