Chipotle Quinoa and Black Bean Burgers
(no ratings)

These are my home made Black Bean burgers. I use all organic ingredients in order to avoid GMOs. These have a kick because everyone in my family loves them spicy. And we enjoy them so much I make a huge batch at a time and then freeze them so we can eat them throughout the week for a quick meal. You can cut the recipe in half and cut down on spices if desired. This recipe is really forgiving as far as ingredients, so feel free to play around to see what works for you. (Also, feel free to substitute the chia seeds/water mixture with egg, if desired.)

Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Very Good 4.3/5
(43 ratings)

This is a really low carb approach to pizza. By using a cauliflower pizza crust, you can really cut a ton of calories when compared to a traditional pizza recipe.

Kim's lowfat jalapeno poppers
Very Good 4.3/5
(58 ratings)

A tasty variation on the traditional popper. My hubby likes these for superbowl sunday. You can also vary the recipe by adding 2 -4 T fat free sharp cheddar shreds to the cream cheese mixture. Also you can use panko crumbs for a crispier coating. Make these at least once before serving to company, as it takes a knack to get them to come out nice looking.
