This recipe came from my pastor's wife who's really into vegetables. The crisp-tender green beans and the crunch of the toasted almonds make this a wonderful spring and summer side dish!

Give canned pears gourmet appeal by gently simmering them with dried cranberries and spices. The result is so good people will think the recipe came from a celebrity chef.

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.

This is a yummy mix of grains I discovered on my quest to get away from processed foods. These grains all have different cooking times, but soaking them overnight fixes that problem. They will all steam up in about 20 minutes, the same as white rice. They cook at a 1part grains to 2 parts liquid ratio. I get all these whole grains from the bulk food section of the heath food store and mix them up in a big container for storage, then cook up portions as needed.

As an alternative to sugar packed crust, sweet and tender pears encase a fruit and nut filling that's similar to cheesecake.

Time savers:
Up to 3 days before, prepare cheesecake mixture, but don't add the almonds.
Day before, poach pears and make sauce. Refrigerate overnight. Stuff pears and keep in the fridge for up to 6 hours. Bring pears and sauce to room temp before serving.

These are very fancy, and replace your usual Thanksgiving pie quite nicely.

Adapted from healthdiscovery.net recipes. I added Grape nuts for a little crunchy "crust," and have made this less sweet than the original recipe. I've also put the spice proportions that I like, and have used real eggs instead of egg beaters. Substitute 1/2 cup of egg substitute or egg whites if you don't want to use the whole eggs.
