Vegan adaptation with an extra hit of protein but the taste of the original. An easy weeknight meal.
I tweaked and merged a couple recipes to come up with a great black eyed peas and collards dish perfect for New Years Day, and any weeknight.
Like a cross between a primevera and a pesto sauce.
A hearty version of miso soup. I used black soy beans in place of the traditional tofu and threw in a ton of veggies. Can easily change up the veggies to use up what you have on hand. A fast filling meal.
A high protein and high-fiber vegan-friendly tomato sauce with the heartiness of a meat sauce. Great over rice, pasta, or polenta. This makes a lot so if you don't want leftovers halve the recipe.
A greek-style tuna salad. Easy and very fresh tasting. Great on a hot day.
A great vegetarian version of Shepherd's Pie. A great make-ahead.
A simple vegetarian meal.
Ok anyone from the south will cringe at this recipe for gumbo, but it is super fast and quite tasty!
A hearty stew with lots of flavor that is quick to fix.
A pizza burger flavor made into a sloppy joe style sandwich for quick cooking.
The bulgar adds a more meaty texture to this fast throw-together in the morning and come home to dinner dish. Great for those super crazy days.
A hearty stew great for a fall day. The combination of ingredients is unusual but works well.
Easy to make filling for pita's or wraps. You could also serve it over rice.
From Inner Peace Diet
A super simple dish great for a night when dinner needs to be on the table quick.
A very different kind of Tuna Salad. Great for lunch or a light dinner on a hot day.
Super Quick and Easy 5 ingredients. This version used soy-based faux chicken but could easily be made using cooked diced real chicken also.
A south of the border version of clasic chicken salad.
This recipe was originally for Cabbage Rolls but I decided to streamline and "healthify" it.
To make this dish a little healthier I sprinkle the noodles over top to give it a bit of crunch but use fewer noodles. The edamame provides a lot of protein in this vegetarian dish.
Kedgeree is a dish created by British colonies that combined curry with their much loved kippers. This version is super-quick, whole grain and surprisingly good.
Vegetarian version of a great family-friendly casserole dish. I upped the health factor by adding in lots of extra veggies
A really awesome potato salad that is a great summer side dish. I subbed in cauliflower for half the potatoes to thin it down and added carrots for some color. The dressing here is also great for salads or as a marinade.
I like to mix a few higher cost "fun" cereals with cheap and healthier cereals to make a snack mix that is pleasing to both the kids and adults. Obviously you can adjust this in a wide variety of ways for your own tastes & needs.
A lovely and healthy version of Tuna Noodle Casserole. The green beans are different from most versions and work really well.
An unusual and simple pasta dish. The beans are cooked for a long time so that they can be twirled right with the pasta. The original recipe called for fresh tomatoes and beans but I streamlined it using canned tomatoes and frozen beans.
Healthy and kid-friendly snack mix.
This makes a lot but we go thru it pretty fast.
A mildly spicy chili sauce done in a Cinninati style with spaghetti noodles. I upped the veggie count here to make it healthier and they are barely noticable (except in the nutrition count!)
A great use of leftover Thanksgiving turkey - fast and cheap!
Easy and healthy muffins for morning or part of a light lunch or dinner.
Nice side or up the portion for a light meal. I like the edamame but you could use lima beans for a more traditional succotash.
Makes a beautiful soup.
Awesome comfort food that is simple and fast to make!
From Whole Grains by Lorna Sass
A great but light tuna casserole. This makes a lot but I like to have leftovers to eat during the week. Very family friendly!
Simple and quick but very yummy.
Awesome and family friendly!
An unusual and refreshing slaw.
