Egg salad: low-fat but yummy

The secret is in dill seasoning, crunchy texture, & low-fat sour cream instead of mayo!

Sweet potato & chickpea shepherd's pie

Curried chickpeas & mashed sweet potatoes transform this British classic! From WashingtonPost.com.

Red lentil curry with seasonal veggies

A what-I've-got-in-the-fridge slow-cooker curry! In my case it was some rutabagas that my housemate had cooked up. Delicious and full of fiber and vitamins.

Peanut-garbanzo curry

This is incredibly delicious--& just bursting with nutrition!

Adapted from a recipe by "Engrossed" on food.com.

Pumpkin & feta muffins

So savory & nutritious! This could be your main course for breakfast or lunch, or a fabulous snack. Adapted from a recipe in Martha Goes Green, by Rosie Percival & Ruth Friedlander.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Quinoa con pollo (quinoa-chicken pilaf)

Delicious version of my favorite Colombian dish, arroz con pollo. The quinoa provides added protein & fiber, plus some fun mouth-texture, & with the veggies included this is basically a one-dish meal!

Arroz con pollo (Colombian chicken with rice)

A pilaf that is nutritious, savory, easy, & soooo good. I grew up in Colombia, & this tastes like home to me. My Colombian husband & our Colombian friends love it too!

Roasted winter veggies

Fragrant with rosemary & oregano, easy to prepare, & replete with vitamins. You can sub other veggies & play with the herbs--it's hard to ruin!

Ruth's chili

I haven't included spices--just want the basic ingredients for nutritional values.

Chicken-lentil stew

Ideal for slow cooker, high in protein, fiber, vitamin A, & iron--& scrumptious.

Mexican veggie saute

Spinach, yellow or red bell pepper, mushrooms & cilantro with a dash of Mexican spiciness--hard to beat for nutrition & yummitude. Low in calories too.

Saucy salmon

A scrumptious way to serve canned salmon--nutritional values are amazing, & it's really delicious.

Ruth's vegetarian chili

Delicious--& packed with nutrition (protein, fiber, Vitamin C, copper, folate, manganese, & more!). Cooking time will be considerably shortened if you're not using a slow cooker.


Very Good (19 ratings)
Dhal (curried split peas)

Good fiber, protein & iron content--& delicious too! Can also be made with mung beans or lentils, or a combination. Adjust spiciness to your preference.

Ruth's Fresh Potato Salad

Lowfat & delicious. Bean sprouts, carrots & celery increase the nutrition & crunch!

Chocolate beet cake

No frosting needed!

Ruth's Mussamun Curry

My version of the curry I always request in Thai & Vietnamese restaurants.

Ruth's Low-Fat Yummy Tuna Salad

The secret is fat free sour cream instead of mayonnaise. It's even better!
