Sweet & Savory Rosemary-Maple Oats

The combination of rosemary and maple, with a hint of spice from the black pepper, is delightful.

Braised Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Cabbage is cheap, and, as such, we toss a head into our shopping cart a couple of times a month. We often shred it and toss it with vinaigrette, but this braised variety is a welcome break from raw slaws.

I adapted this recipe from one found on choosingraw.com; adjust the ratio of ingredients to suit your palate. This makes an excellent grilled cheese!

This fluffy, creamy hummus is fantastic spread on sandwiches, as a pasta sauce, or as a dip for fresh veggies.


Very Good (34 ratings)
Lentils Puttanesca

Puttanesca is one of my favorite Italian sauces. This version turns ordinary dried brown lentils into real comfort food.

Quinoa-Sweet Potato Casserole

This recipe came about because I had just made vegetable enchiladas and had leftovers, plus quinoa from earlier in the week. Thankfully, this experiment yielded a hearty, delicious meal.


Very Good (3 ratings)

Very Good (4 ratings)
Stepf's Zucchini "Pasta" with Tomatoes and Basil "Cream"

This "pasta" dish is so light and yet rich--you'll never guess the "cream" is made from sunflower seeds. The white beans add buttery flavor and protein. Make this when the garden overflows with tomatoes, basil and zucchini.


Very Good (1 rating)
Stepf's Cauliflower Sushi "Rice" Salad

I first had cauliflower "rice" while on a raw vegan yoga retreat in Honduras. I'm hooked! It's light yet filling--perfect for summer.

Stepf's Pickled Garlic

This is one of my favorite Korean side dishes. We eat it raw, throw it in stirfries, sauces, dressings, and pretty much everything else we eat!


Very Good (26 ratings)
Sweet and Spicy Nuts

These are addictive. They're sweet, salty, spicy, and crunchy. Cut back on the sriracha/chili flakes to tame these fiery nuts. Use smoked (not hot or sweet) paprika.

Stepf's Buckwheat Cereal

I love toasted buckwheat. It has a nutty, slightly sour taste that pairs well with oats, sweet dried fruit, and maple syrup. Add nuts for protein and crunch.


Very Good (2 ratings)
Nutritional Yeast Seasoning (Vegan "Parmesan")

Use this on top of popcorn, pasta, or stews; or add it to stir-fries, soups, and sauces. Some consider it to be vegan "Parmesan," but it is appropriate in a wide variety of dishes--not just on pasta.

Stepf's Queso (Sin Queso) Dip

This is cheese dip--without the cheese! The secret ingredient? Nutritional yeast.

Stepf's Not Sausage Gravy

My mom's sausage gravy and biscuits was one of my favorite breakfasts when I was growing up. Then I gave up meat--and my beloved breakfast. It wasn't until I discovered nutritional yeast and Field Roast links that I decided to give a vegetarian version of this recipe a try. It's a hit!

Very Good (19 ratings)
Tahini-Lemon Dressing

Use this on falafel or a salad. Add fresh or dried herbs and it becomes goddess dressing. The toasted sesame oil imparts a stronger sesame flavor to the dressing.


Very Good (62 ratings)
Baked Falafel

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.

Stepf's Spicy Vegan Quinoa-Cornbread

This cornbread was a serendipitous success. I didn't have cornmeal but I had masa de harina (corn flour). As it turns out, masa de harina yields a light and fluffy cornbread!


Incredible! (2 ratings)
Stepf's Sweet and SPICY Smoked Almonds

I made these almonds as a gift for the Foodbuzz bloggers conference. The recipe is incredibly simple, and I made it special by using chiles I'd grown, dried, and ground myself, along with fresh rosemary from my garden. Make sure you use smoked paprika in this recipe, as it is what lends the signature smoked flavor.


Incredible! (1 rating)
Haluski-Style Cabbage and Onions

In this Slavic dish, cabbage and onions are roasted with celery seed and butter, then tossed with egg noodles. Delicious? Yes. Healthy? No. So I lightened it up a bit.


Very Good (11 ratings)
Savory Greek Beans (Fasolia Gigantes)

OK, so Great Northern Beans are not "gigantes," but they yield a creamy, delicious dish. Use Greek gigantes beans if you have them for a more authentic dish.


Very Good (1 rating)
Turkish Bulgur Meatballs (Yalanci Cig Kofte)

During a trip to the Turkish coast, my friends and I gobbled down vegetarian bulgur "meatballs," called yalanci cig kofte. "Yalanci" means liar because the bulgur and potatoes are used instead of raw meat, as in the original recipe.

Skinny Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

Lemony coriander and smoky cumin pair perfectly with sharp Cheddar in this grown-up spin on scalloped potatoes.


Very Good (462 ratings)
Quinoa-Black Bean Casserole

Stepf's Raw Granola Bars

This raw granola is great for breakfast or an afternoon snack. It's full of heart-healthy fats!

Easy Bulgur Salad

Full of fiber and fresh herbs, this whole-grain salad is perfect as a side or light lunch.

Stepf's Whole-Grain Fruit Crisp

Crisps are a quick and easy dessert. I like to use whatever fruit is in season: blueberries, strawberries, peaches, cherries, plums, pears, and apples.

I use two cups of fruit in this recipe so that each person gets a full serving of fruit, but when you buy berries they come in pints. One pint of berries yields about 1 1/2 cups. That means you're either a half-cup short or you need to buy two and have a cup leftover. Save the extra berries for your morning cereal, freeze them for smoothies--or just add them to the crisp. The more fruit, the merrier.

You can use frozen (no need to thaw before baking) or fresh fruit in this recipe.

Serve any leftovers atop plain yogurt for breakfast.

Ezogelin Corbası (Turkish Lentil and Bulgur Soup with Mint)

This soup, based on a Turkish recipe given to me by a friend, is incredibly filling. (It is called Bride Ezo Soup.)

Cheezy, Spicy Kale Chips

Craving chips? Skip the spuds and reach for the greens instead.


Very Good (13 ratings)
Broccoli Everyone Will Love

Broccoli is my favorite vegetable, but not everyone agrees with me. To convert people, I like to serve this simple recipe. Garlic sauteed in olive oil offers a sweet richness, and the lemon juice offers a nice tang.
If you are using fresh broccoli, peel the stalks and dice them before adding to the cooking water.


Very Good (1 rating)
Zucchini Pancakes

This recipe originally came from a vegetarian cookbook, but I've changed the herbs and played with the ingredients a bit.

TIPS:
Instead of zucchini, you can use yellow squash. You can also add a shredded carrot to the recipe (no need to salt and drain the carrots).

Swap shredded sweet potatoes for the zucchini and cumin (1 T) and cilantro (1/4 c) for the thyme and basil.

If you want a stronger tomato flavor, chop a few more sun-dried tomatoes and puree them with the yogurt before topping the pancakes.


Incredible! (6 ratings)
Kimchi

NOTE: The high salt content is due to the pickling process. Most of the salt is rinsed off!
Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish made from a variety of vegetables, which are salted and then mixed with hot pepper flakes, onion, garlic and spices.


Very Good (664 ratings)
Soft-Serve Banana 'Ice Cream'

Frozen bananas rival soft serve when given a whirl in the food processor. No cholesterol and no added sugar, just creamy and sweet bananas!

Pineapple Salsa

This is one of my favorite salsas. It was a hit at a recent party!


Very Good (33 ratings)

Very Good (103 ratings)
Mexican Pizza

This Mexican pizza is a tasty alternative to traditional pizza. Add grilled chicken or cooked shrimp to change this up!

Green Smoothie

Use kale instead of spinach if you're feeling extra brave! (You can't taste the greens at all, I promise!) Add frozen berries or other frozen fruit for a twist. I am lactose intolerant and allergic to peanuts, but you can use regular milk and peanut butter, too!
Add 1/4 c oat bran for more "staying power." These keep me fueled through lunchtime!


Very Good (11 ratings)

Engine 2 Diet: Healthy Homemade Hummus

This is the most basic of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with either olive oil or tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content. Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.

Engine 2 Diet: E2 Almighty Healthy Wrap

Our very own Station 2 won the 2003 Austin Fire Department’s Healthy Wagon Contest with this very healthful and tasty lunch/dinner wrap. The judges included three experts—the Fire Department’s in-house health specialist, a local representative from the American Heart Association, and a member of the Mayor’s Council for Physical Fitness.
The department also sponsored an awards presentation at which we received a little red wagon, a healthy low-fat cookbook, a salad spinner, and fifty dollars to use for a future healthy wagon.
This wrap also makes an excellent dinner.

California Roll in a Bowl

Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.

Gramma Willie's Light(er) Alfredo Sauce

My Gramma Willie taught me how to make this sauce years ago. It's the only way I make Alfredo now (though I use unsweetened soy milk instead of skim milk). Serve with grilled chicken, broccoli and pasta.

Personal Blueberry-Peach Cobblers by SP_Stepf

Replace the traditional biscuit topping with whole wheat fillo dough for a quick and light dessert.

Light Creamy Pesto by SP_Stepf

My light creamy pesto mixes the best of two favorite (high-calorie) Italian sauces--Alfredo and pesto Genovese. Traditional pesto has 150 calories and 13 grams of fat per serving. This version has 89 calories and 7.7 grams of fat.

Pint-Sized Apple Pies

I'm a sucker for a good slice of pie. The trouble with baking pies is that then there is an entire pie lurking on the counter or in the fridge. And when there's a whole pie to tempt you, portion control is difficult.
My pint-sized apple pies, adapted from a recipe from my mom, solves that problem: They're instantly portion controlled. Plus, little ones can easily help.


Very Good (32 ratings)
Garden Fresh Lasagna

I love rich, cheesy lasagna, but in the summer when vegetables are at their peak, cheese overwhelms the dish. Adding plenty of fresh vegetables to your regular lasagna for a healthy, light summer supper.


Very Good (3 ratings)
Broiled kimchi

Kimchi's sour flavor goes away when it's broiled or barbecued. Serve this alongside bulgogi or other Korean barbecued meats. The kimchi gets really sweet and smoky. I can eat the entire pan by myself!

SP_Stepf's Creamy Zucchini Salad

Try this light zucchini salad atop a bed of baby spinach, with whole-wheat pasta, or with a sprinkling of fresh diced tomatoes.

SP_Stepf's Romesco Dip

Red peppers add antioxidants and spice to this dip, which is full of heart-healthy fats (from almonds and olive oil).

Panzanella is an Italian salad made from stale bread and vegetables. My version has fresh zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and onions, plus tons of basil and parsley for flavor.

Skinny Cheese Fondue

This is a slimmed down version of one of my favorite party foods--cheese fondue. Mashed cannellini beans slim down the recipe but keep a thick and luscious texture!

Dark chocolate walnut shortbread

Curried couscous

A light spring dinner that offers spice but no heat.

Vegetable Pancakes

I make these with Swiss Chard (my go-to green), but you can substitute spinach, collard greens, mustard greens, or any other green leafy vegetable you like.


Very Good (12 ratings)
Crispy Green Beans with Pesto

The trick to learning to like vegetables you hate is to disguise their appearance and flavor. Think about what it is you dislike about that particular vegetable.
I asked Fred why he's anti-green beans. It turns out that he remembers the long, mushy canned beans from childhood.
Step 1: Chop the beans into 1-inch pieces.
Step 2: Change texture. Sauté them in a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper on high heat until they're crispy on the outside and still slightly firm.
Step 3: Change the flavor: Add pesto (with homemade lemony basil from the co-op) and an extra bit of parmesan cheese!
Results: "Is this pasta?" Fred asks as I hand him a plate of beans.

Kimchi Fried Rice

Make this versatile dish with leftover rice and any vegetable in your crisper. (Brown is better, but I've used white rice from last night's takeout.)


Very Good (34 ratings)
SP_Stepf's Summer Kitchen Sink Pasta

Maybe I should have called this my "Summer Farmers Market Pasta." It's full of the vegetables I brought home from the farmers market on Saturday. Like many of my recipes, it can be altered based on what you've got on hand. I almost threw in some Swiss chard (my green of choice these days) and some brilliant yellow crookneck squash, but I decided to save those for another day and another dish.


Very Good (47 ratings)
SP_Stepf's Baked Veggie Burritos

Black beans, sweet potatoes and greens are spiced up and baked in egg roll wrappers to create burritos that are heavy on taste and light on calories. (Feel free to change this recipe with what you've got in the fridge. No sweet potatoes? Try zucchini or butternut squash. Swap kale for spinach, Swiss chard or your favorite green! Instead of black beans, try kidney, pinto or garbanzo beans.)


Very Good (5 ratings)
SP_Stepf's Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

Spruce up any salad with this creamy dressing! It's spicy but not at all hot! Drizzle over salads, grilled chicken or fish. Use in place of sour cream on tacos or use as base for a pasta salad.

SP_Stepf's Molasses Granola

As far as sweeteners go, molasses is a pretty healthy one. This granola offers a good amount of calcium, fiber and flavor!

SP_Stepf's Chickpeas and Shells

This delicious hearty pasta is a favorite in our house. High in fiber and in protein!


Very Good (41 ratings)
SP_Stepf's Technicolor Pasta

This pasta packs a nutritional punch, and the brightly colored vegetables are quite a sight!
