Black Bean Hummus
Very Good 4.3/5

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.

Because this dish contains no beaten egg whites, it is not a true soufflé the name is derived from its light airy texture. Similar in color and flavor to sweet potato casserole, it pairs well with ham or turkey.

Incredible! 5.0/5

This is a smoothie recipe from Dr. Josh Axe. The volume is large enough that I have divided it into 2 portions/servings, though if you can "handle a 350+ calorie breakfast, GO FOR IT!

Roasted Beet Salad
Very Good 4.4/5
(172 ratings)

Think you dislike beets? Not after trying this recipe! Roasting brings out the beets' natural sweetness, and the feta offers a salty contrast.

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(135 ratings)

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.
