A substitute for mashed potatoes, but much different than the normal recipes. This one uses cauliflower, parsnips, and white beans to add nutrition and protein to this low-carb replacement dish.

Sesame Stir-Fried Green Beans
Good 3.7/5
(23 ratings)

This recipe is to replace the green beans you get at most/all Chinese Buffets including Panda Express and many others. They are a hit with everyone, every time I make them... even my picky picky picky people that I have to feed!

[EDIT: After noticing everyone commenting on the sodium, I realized that I didn't add the 'lite' soy sauce that I use - I had added regular! Fixed it now :) ]

Amazing Ezekiel Bread Stuffing
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

This is my own version of this stuffing. It is absolutely tasty AND healthy! Ezekiel Bread is a dense, chewy, flour-less bread made with a variety of whole grains that are minimally processed to keep them as close as possible to what nature intended them to be. You can find it in the frozen section of healthy food grocery stores such as Whole Foods, Wild Oats or Trader Joe's. I had to guesstimate how many tbsp 10 shallots (baby onions) would be, so the calorie content may be slightly off because of that! You can also sub any loaf of whole grain bread for the Ezekiel Bread if you can't find it and vegetable broth instead of chicken if you want to keep this vegan, but it will change the calorie content of the recipe as posted. Recipe nutritional info as posted uses plain Ezekiel Bread and chicken broth.

"This is one of my favorites because it is easy, fast and simple and versatile. If you like brown rice, I recommend using it in this and all recipes. It takes a bit longer to cook but is worth the wait, for both nutrition and taste. There is an instant brown rice on the market now, too."
