Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

from Prevent's Stop Dieting and Lose Weight

Hickory Smoked Veggie Turkey Lunchmeat

This recipe is from vegandad.blogspot.com.

Calories figured on 12.97 servings of 85 grams (or 3 oz) each.

Vegan Dad's Breakfast Sausages

Well, the website has gone downhill lately, now that he's shilling for Reinhart, but the early recipes are worth checking out at vegandad.blogspot.com. He has a lot of good fake-meat recipes.

Bademiya's Justly Famous Chile-Coriander Chicken

This is from the book The Barbecue Bible, by Steven Raichlen. The recipe is absolutely amazing. I've figured nutritional info on the marinade only, figured for ten servings. I'll redo it eventually and figure it by weight to make it more accurate. Figure in your calories based on how much chicken you eat and whether it's dark or light, with skin or without.

Vegetarian Tacos

From the fantabulous website phamfatale.com. Nutritional data not figured with lettuce or salsa, or cheese or any add-ons.. Recipe originally called for 2 Tb olive oil, but I figured it for 0.5 Tb olive oil.

Note: This is eyebrow-searing levels of heat if you have good cayenne. Knock it down by at least half, maybe more, unless your diet lets you lay on the cheeze.

Zucchini Mousakka with Garbanzo Beans (Nohutlu Kabak Musakka)

Recipe borrowed from the scrumptious website almostturkish.blogspot.com. Go look! The photos are lovely too. Notice, calories are calculated on weight for zucchini.

Recipe figured without chile sauce, since they vary so much. Just add it in to your calorie count.

Achari Murgh - Chicken in Pickling Spices

First and foremost, this recipe comes from soimarriedameataholic.blogspot.com. Go visit her. She also has a vegetarian blog, which is equally fantastic.

Now, I didn't figure calorie count for the stuffed chilies, because I'm not going to eat them (too hot for me), they're just in the recipe for flavoring. If you eat them, figure them into the calories along with the spices inside them. I also made this recipe with only 2 Tb oil, and that's how I figured calories. The 4 chicken breasts I used weighed in at 26 oz. if you want precision.

Hell Yeah Awesome Vegan Bratwurst

This is from the website hellyeahitsvegan.com. Check it out. She has some really incredible recipes.

Nutritional info is figured on six bratwursts.

This is an exceptional recipe if you're looking for high protein, low fat. This and sauerkraut for your carb makes an awesome mini-meal or snack. Or for a bigger meal you could put it on a whole-wheat bun for your carb and sauerkraut for your veg.

Chicken and Garlic Stew

From Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything. Calories figured with white wine as the liquid.

Chicken and Lentils

From Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything. You'll notice above in nutritional info that I listed 2 cups lentils and below in ingredients it's 1 cup. That's because sparkpeople's nutrtional info for lentils is specifically for cooked (although they annoyingly don't say that...you discover it by cross-checking them). 1 cup dry lentils makes 2 cups cooked. Voila.

Tofu Fajitas

I didn't figure tortillas into the calorie count, so that you can choose whether to use corn, flour, or whole wheat. This is from the book "Lean, Luscious and Meatless," but I used lime juice instead of orange juice, as the authors suggested.

Broccoli Tofu Divan

From Lean, Luscious and Meatless, a truly awesome book. I love that it lists calories, protein, fat, and carbs, so you can see at any easy glance if the recipe fits your diet.

Zucchini-Carrot Tofu Cakes

from beckyandthebeanstock.com

This is low calorie, but it is higher fat, if fried. Remember that.

NYT Salsa Fresca

Makes 18 TB. The calorie count is per TB.

This MUST be made with very ripe, good tomatoes, grown yourself, or bought at a farmers' market. Do not use supermarket tomatoes or this will not thrill you.

Chicken Kebab Burger

Recipe from http://www.phamfatale.com. Check out her other recipes! She photos are gorgeous too. Notes on nutritional info: I did not include the bun or any toppings in the calorie count, except carmelized onions. I figured this for one patty per serving, instead of the two patties per person that the recipe calls for.

Amy's Amazing White Chicken Chili

This is INCREDIBLE on corn tortillas. I brushed 2 corn tortillas with olive oil, stuck them in a cast-iron skillet and put them in the oven on broil. When they're crisped but still bendable, spoon with chili, and add lettuce. Wow!

There's a lot of wiggle room here. The original recipe came from kalynskitchen.blogspot.com, but I made it to my taste. I used white cannelini beans, 3 cups homemade chicken stock and 1 tsp Better than Boullion No Chicken Broth, with 1 cup water. I used 1 can diced chilis, and chopped 1/2 a fresh Anaheim chili. I used a full TB garlic. And because my chili powder is very fresh and very potent, I only used 1/4 tsp. Any more would have been way too hot. And the chicken I used was rotisserie white meat, not fried in oil on my stove (never-the-less, I used the original recipe for the calorie count).

Just remember, the cilantro is not really optional. :) It adds a bright green taste that I think the chili really needs. Cilantro-haters might try adding cabbage and lime.

Vegan Hamburger Steaks

From thriftyliving.net. She has lots of great recipes. Go visit!

Cauliflower Boudin

This recipe uses the type of tofu you find on the regular shelves labeled "firm silken". You do NOT want the refrigerated kind of tofu here. The word silken is very important to see on the package. :) I like them best when they're cooled in the fridge and then fried later. Otherwise they're a little soft. The taste of these is absolutely amazing.

This is from the book The Vegetarian Compass, by Karen Hubert Allison. If you like the recipe, please buy her book. The rest of the recipes are just as good.

Baked Thai Corn Fritters

Serve with Thai dipping sauce. Taken from the Vegan Dad blog. The original recipe was vegan and called for an EnerG egg. This is altered to include a real egg. You'll find a lovely photo at his website: http://vegandad.blogspot.com/2009/08/baked
-thai-corn-fritters.html (I personally won't repost another person's photo---I'd rather link to their body of work.

This makes a great low-fat snack! Really awesome stuff. If you want to go balls out you can fry it and elevate it to the realm of the divine, but this is a diet site, yo.

Quinoa Curry Stew

I'm unsure of the serving size. I'm guessing at six servings for nutritional info.

Greek Style Quinoa Burgers

Nutritional info figured without the tzatziki sauce and without the pita.

Cornbread, Southern Yellow

Cornbread, the way I was taught to make it. Perfect accompaniment to soup or stew.

Coriander Parcels

Altered from "Complete Vegetarian" to be lower fat and higher protein.

Omelette with Beans

This is a higher fat recipe! Keep this in mind when you make your daily calculations. Serve with a green salad.

Lower Fat Piperade

This is a low-fat, higher protein version of piperade. Serve on whole-wheat toast (not figured into calories).

Greek Cheese and Potato Patties

This is a little high in fat, so keep that in mind when you balance your meals. I've put this in the meal category because I try to eat six meals a day. Given that, this amount of caloric content falls into "meal" for me.
