BAKED! Vegetable Latkes
Very Good 4.2/5
(5 ratings)

these are made with more than just potatoes, and then they're baked instead of fried - much healthier and much tastier!

Avocado & Kidney Bean Salad
Very Good 4.6/5
(9 ratings)

This is a yummy salad that is very flexible. Try subbing olive oil/balsamic vinegar as a dressing. Remember avocados are a little bit higher in the mono saturated (healthier) fats but also a great source of fiber! On the 2nd round of this salad, I tried adding dill and some rinsed, canned chicken. That was also good. Enjoy :)

*Rinsing beans, reduces sodium from what is listed

Two of my favorite ingredients in one recipe! A touch of Middle East and a touch of the Orient. Who says you can't have the best of both worlds?

Zucchini Garlic Soup
Very Good 4.6/5
(8 ratings)

from www.thekitchn.com:
This soup is so creamy and silky - it tastes like it's full of cream. But it doesn't have a drop of dairy.

i modified the original recipe slightly by substituting olive oil instead of butter & fresh ginger instead of powdered ginger.

Lentil-Rice Casserole
Very Good 4.8/5
(4 ratings)

This is a dish you can use many ways!!! Eat it like a burrito, in place of taco meat on your tacos, as a dip for tortilla chips, or our favorite way is to put just a little in a soft flour taco with a little salsa and low fat sour cream. yummm... however you eat it, it is wonderful! Make it healthier with a whole wheat tortilla!!

A lovely refreshing and cooling dip. It's also delicious as a thick creamy dressing with chicken salad – except, with a fraction of the calories.

Skinny Farmer's Pot Pie
Very Good 4.6/5
(17 ratings)

I call it Farmer's Pot Pie because you should use whatever beans and vegetables you have available according to what is in season and available to you. Skinny because the crust is only on top.
