This uses less expensive peanut butter instead of the traditional tahini. I love it just as much! Great with veggies and whole wheat crackers/tortillas.

Avocado Cream
Very Good 4.2/5
(24 ratings)

Guacamole or sour cream? Sour cream or guacamole? Why choose? My avocado "cream" combines the flavor of both--with a boost of protein!

This recipe yields about 3.5 pints apple butter, and is suitable for canning if you like, or throw the jars in the fridge. If canned, this keeps up to 6 months (if it lasts that long!), or in the fridge, use within 2 months.

This is a two-fer recipe, to boot! If you stop before the second cooking session, you've made applesauce; continue on and you'll have apple butter!

Applesauce is great on its own, or as a fat substitute in baking. Apple butter is divine stirred into oatmeal, or as a sauce for meat, or stirred into yogurt!

Loaded with fresh tomatoes and basil, this quiche takes advantage of the glut of late-season vegetables you can get for cheap at the farmer's market. For an especially flavorful and beautiful pie, use two or three varieties of heirloom tomatoes in different colors, like deep pink Brandywines or fun green Zebras.

This recipe is for chicken chimichangos baked in the oven. It is an easy dish to make and gets high ratings in my house. Compliment this dish with some mexican rice for a nice dinner under 400 calories.

Perfection in my opinion! The applesauce reduces the need for as much fat. This is the best granola because of the way it's roasted. I really like it with coconut too. The dried organic coconut is so small that even my picky eaters don't know it's there.
