Unchained Recipe Contest - Grilled bean and cheese sandwich with sweet poato chips

This a remade grilled cheese and french fry meal from any typical restaurant. I love grilled cheese but it typically has no nutritional value as it's just bread and cheese! The beans in this re-made grilled cheese add fiber and protein. The brown mustard adds a glue to cheese and gives the sandwich an unexpected tang! The sweet potatoes are much better than normal white potatoes and they are roasted in the oven instead of deep fried. The nutritional information will change based on the brands you use - I am entering the brands I used obviously!

FYI - I've also made this with plain beans that I spiced up myself with a little salsa and mexican spices and then mashed. Feel free to do that if you don't have or like refried beans!

Asiago and Almond Rice with Peas

This is a recipe I made up on the fly one night and now I love it! I split this into 6 servings for a side dish, but you could definitely add any meat/tofu and make this an entire meal! This can easily be made vegetarian if you use vegetable broth or just water to cook the rice!

Tomato rice with corn

This is a recipe I created on the fly one night and it's become a staple in my household! I split this into 6 servings for a side dish, but you can definitely add any meat/tofu and make this an entire meal! This can easily be made vegan if you use vegetable broth instead of chicken. I use no salt added tomatoes because of sodium concerns, but you can use any type you want.
