Grilled Shrimp with Mango-Chili Sauce
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

Keeping the shell on the shrimp locks in moisture while you grill them, and it keeps them from sticking.

Goat Cheese Alfredo Pasta
Good 3.2/5
(26 ratings)

Even a lunch portion of fettuccine Alfredo has 800 calories and 48 grams of fat. Mine has less than 1/2 the calories, 1/5 the fat, and plenty of veggies, too.

Tempeh Mexican Pizza - (Unchained Recipe Contest)
Very Good 4.1/5
(8 ratings)

I'm really proud of myself for this one. I used to love getting Mexican Pizzas at Taco Bell. I haven't had one in years. So, I spent a few days concocting this recipe.

Tempeh is a fermented soybean cake, originating from Indonesia. You can find it at your health food store, if you can't find it at your regular grocery store. We aren't vegetarians, but sometimes it's nice to have a vegetarian meal. Helps save on the calories. Tempeh is a great meat substitute. If you chop it up right, it can have a similar consistency to ground meat.

Also, I'm pretty sure the tortillas Taco Bell uses for this are deep fried to make them crispy. I baked mine.

Not-Fried Shrimp with Japanese Cocktail Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(33 ratings)

Biting into a perfectly crispy fried shrimp is so satisfying. The 10 grams of fat per serving? Not so satisfying. This dish has all the crunch, with much less fat.

Very Good 4.5/5

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.
