The extra time put into making classic risotto is worth the wait. This version uses quick ingredients and pairs nicely with any meat. It is also hearty enough to be served as a meal on it's own. Could easily be converted to a vegetarian recipe.

Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Chicken

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide whole wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

I wanted to calculate the calories for this awesome, pretty-healthy, easy to prepare and delicious recipe from the Food Network. I scaled back on the olive oil as well. Delish!

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.

A healthy and filling middle eastern dip! Eat it as an appetizer or snack with some pita. Why buy your hummus ready made from the store, when you can make it yourself?

A very yummy vegetarian meatloaf adopted from another vegan blog. I can't find the original to give credit, I printed from my email and have been using that recipe but made a few changes to use what I had on hand. Makes 4 1/2 cup servings. I measure them out with a measuring cup and make mini loaves :)
