Strawberry Cheesecake Shake
Very Good 4.5/5
(211 ratings)

A filling breakfast or post-workout recovery drink, this protein-packed smoothie tastes just like strawberry cheesecake! You can also substitute any other fruit for the strawberries, or add half the strawberries and half a different kind of fruit. (We love the classic strawberry banana combo!)

Black Bean Hummus

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.

Raspberry-Lemon Scones
Very Good 4.0/5
(50 ratings)

Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts, or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour.

Vegetarian Vindaloo
Very Good 4.2/5
(54 ratings)

Vindaloo is one of my favorite dishes in the world! This spicy Indian curry can be made vegetarian or with meat and is packed with spices. For those new to Indian cooking, I simplified the spice list, choosing five you might already have on hand.

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(284 ratings)

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

Curried Coconut and Chickpea Soup (October 2011)
(no ratings)

This fiery Thai-inspired soup will help clear out your sinuses, without being uncomfortably spicy. Light coconut milk makes the broth creamy, chickpeas add protein, and vegetables like jalapeno, tomato and red pepper add their own healthful benefits. This super-simple easy is great for someone learning to make soup!

Vegetarian Enchilada Bake
(no ratings)

This is a high-protein, vegetable-centric dish that requires minimal hands-on time but looks pretty darn fancy! You can use pre-made corn tortillas if you want (they aren't sold in my region so I had to make my own), and you can vary the vegetables and salsas based on your personal preferences (though the nutritional information will change).
