Very Good 4.2/5

These burgers are rich and meaty, the kind of burger that vegetarians have been craving. Even meat eaters will appreciate these tasty and fiber-rich burgers.

Lentils with Sweet Potato
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

This is just a 'toss-together dish' I came up with, easy and nutritionally sound (I think).
PLEASE don't use dried herbs. Fresh herbs are a must for anyone learning to enjoy fresh healthy food.

BBQ Shrimp with Creamy Cheese Polenta
Very Good 4.2/5
(14 ratings)

I don't know a kid who doesn't love the combo of cheese and barbecue sauce. This dish is a swap on mac-n-cheese and BBQ chicken that's quick and grown-up approved.

(1 rating)

This is a traditional Cuban dish, in which the black beans symbolize the Moors, and the white rice the Christians. This version is adapted from a recipe from the Bean Education and Awareness Network. My whole family loves it, even my picky 13-year-old son. It's very good with some sliced oranges and crusty bread.

I love faux frying foods using panko. This crunchy, spicy chicken would be great on a taco salad.

Authentic Mole
Incredible! 5.0/5
(6 ratings)

Lots of ingredients, but not hard to make. Follow this mole recipe, and you'll be fine. This makes a ton, but it freezes well and is great over shredded chicken and rice!

Roasted chicken is a simple and versatile protein. Use it in soups, throw it on pasta or pair it with a simple salad. Tip: Save time and energy by roasting two chickens at once and freezing one (carve it first).
NOTE: Save about 125 calories and 11 g fat per serving by removing the skin.
