In my old neighborhood, there was an amazing takeout place where I'd get Thai curry vegetables on a pretty regular basis. I didn't think I could make it, or make it healthfully for that matter - until this morning. I played around with what I had on hand and came up with the following recipe for tonight's dinner, with plenty to freeze for later cravings.

Very Good 4.1/5
(33 ratings)

Puttanesca is one of my favorite Italian sauces. This version turns ordinary dried brown lentils into real comfort food.

Black Bean Hummus
Very Good 4.2/5
(325 ratings)

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.

These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.

Soothing and delicious, this soup seems to revive me right from the first spoonful. I find this easiest to cook in a slow cooker and allow to simmer all day

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!

This is an easy and delicious one pot meal. The number of servings seems rather weird, but that is how many 2 cup servings we got. I see that the sodium value is pretty high. There is no way to note it when entering nutrition information, but you rinse the chickpeas which lowers the sodium considerably. Of course you can also reduce the amount of salt you add to lower it even further! If you have left over butternut squash that is already cooked it cuts down the recipe time to less than 30 minutes, just skip the first step and proceed with recipe. Enjoy!

Easy to make! A simple "stew" of chickpeas served over couscous makes an easy and delicious dinner, high in protein and healthy fat, and low in calories!
