Amber's Garbanzo Chickpea Extravaganza
Very Good 4.5/5
(49 ratings)

I actually got the basics of this recipe when I went to a tops meeting with my mother in law! Get em crispy enough and they are soo tasty! Like eating chips or popcorn but without most of the guilt because they are so jam packed with protein and only have under 200 calories a serving. It feeds four as an appetizer but I'm not gonna lie, I've sat down and had em for lunch and ate an entire batch! They even have a good amont of fiber so enjoy!

Kohlrabi pickles
Very Good 4.0/5
(5 ratings)

This is a slight tweaking of a recipe I found on restaurantwidow.com. I tried to minimize the salt to keep the sodium levels in check. It came out delicious! My 5-yr-old couldn't stop eating them, when I made it for the first time yesterday, and she is already begging me to make it again. They are the perfect snack because they are full of nutrients with hardly any calories; they taste delicious, and have a very satisfying crunch. If you've never tried kohlrabi, you don't know what you're missing!

Vegetable and Fruit Stuffing
Very Good 4.1/5
(40 ratings)

Whole wheat bread gives this side staying power. The fruits and vegetables bulk up the dish, so a little goes a long way. A bit of turkey bacon adds another layer of flavor without adding many calories.
