Baked Falafel
Very Good 4.1/5
(62 ratings)

Use all chickpeas if you don't have fava beans. If you use canned beans, the sodium levels will be higher so omit the salt.

Vegan Ranch Dressing
Good 3.8/5
(8 ratings)

I love ranch dressing, but it's so heavy! Here's a lighter version that also happens to be vegan. You can substitute regular low-fat mayonnaise and skim milk for the coconut milk and vegan mayo.

Very Good 4.5/5
(181 ratings)

I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!

Vindaloo is one of my favorite dishes in the world! This spicy Indian curry can be made vegetarian or with meat and is packed with spices. For those new to Indian cooking, I simplified the spice list, choosing five you might already have on hand.
