Vegan Lasagna with Pine Nuts

This awesome vegan alternative to ordinary lasagna is only 78 calories per serving and super high in vitamin A! We enjoyed in cold the next morning just as much as hot from the oven for dinner.

Hidden Valley (Garlic-Yogurt) Ranch Dip

Tangy yogurt and Garlic-y goodness! This makes a less-guilty dip since it's made with yogurt instead of full sour cream. Excellent as a dip, spread on a sandwich, or drizzled over baked potatoes! Only 16 calories per tablespoon, and if you're really into cutting the fat, use only plain yogurt!

Beet Quinoa Shepherd's Pie

This variation on shepherd's pie is topped with quinoa instead of potatoes for added protein (5.5 g per serving). The beets are sweet and add tons of iron (10.5% DV per serving).

Tomato Garbanzos

My mother always baked garbanzo beans with tomatoes and bell peppers for Thanksgiving. This quick alternative spices up a meal and is excellent served over curried couscous.

Curried Couscous

Delicious, versatile, quick. Not super low in calories, but awesome after a heavy work out.
Good mixed in salads, instead of rice, served hot or cold. Leave out curry powder and use water instead of broth to make more plain.

Coconut Black Beans & Rice

Rich creamy coconut sauce (would've been better to use "Lite" variety) this meal is quick, easy and full of iron!

Szechuan Baby Bok Choy

Spicy greens go well with rice and Stir fried edamame

Edamame Stir Fry

Easy quick and delicious

Rice & Blueberry Porridge

This hearty warm cereal is tasty and will stick with you for hours. A good alternative to oatmeal for breakfast.

Cucumber Cayenne Raita

This spicy variation on traditional Indian yogurt sauce is excellent over rice, curries, or as a lowfat dip!

Corn Pudding

This recipe originally came from the "Wings of Life" cookbook by Julie Jordan

Flakey Biscuits

This recipe comes from the Tassajara Bread Book

Sauteed String Beans

My version of Chinese green beans

Spicy ~ Fresh Peanut Butter Sauce

Excellent with sautéed string beans over rice, for dipping veggie wraps, or anywhere a spicy peanut sauce would usually go.

Avocado Pasta with Broccoli & Mushrooms

decadent creamy avocado sauce over noodles of your choice. My sister made this by eating something similar at a restaurant and figuring it out at home. I think a splash of white wine would add a nice zing to the sauce.

Tara' s Tasty Calzones

These are easy and nutritious and taste great dipped in your favorite marinara. The filling can be adjusted to your tastes, and although this recipe uses pre-made pizza dough, you can make it easily with a little yeast, honey and flour (this will add about a half hour to the prep time)

Fried Rice

Vegetarian Fried Rice


Incredible! (1 rating)
Kung Pao Tofu
