Traditionally, this recipe has potatoes but I replaced it with turnips which are much lower in calories or you can choose your favourite root vegatable instead. Low in saturated fat and a great source of calcium and fibre.

Deviled eggs are a perennial potluck favorite. This recipe replaces some of the egg yolks with nonfat cottage cheese—keeping the filling velvety and rich while reducing some of the fat. No one will know the difference.Submitted by TRILLIUM1204

WILD RICE FACTOID: Wild rice is a great source of protein, B vitamins, iron and fiber - - - and its nutty flavour is a delicious way to enjoy whole grains.Submitted by TRILLIUM1204
Richly satisfying, this luscious-looking soup made with red bell peppers gets a touch of heat from Thai chile. For an extra-nutty flavor, puree an additional 1/4 cup shelled pistachios with 1/4 cup water and serve the soup with a dollop of this pistachio puree on top.Submitted by TRILLIUM1204
If you haven't heard of it, chimichurri originated in Argentina and is still quite popular there as well as in Argentinean restaurants in this country. Chimichurri is an Argentine equivalent of a pesto, but instead of basil and garlic as main ingredients, it has a combination of parsley, oregano, garlic, salt, pepper and usually another spice or two with tons of olive oil. Though I love the flavours, I'm not a fan of all that oil. Here's a great way to enjoy the true flavour of this tasty sauce without overdoing it on the oil.Submitted by TRILLIUM1204
Serve this creamy rice dish as a side with roast chicken or pork, or increase the serving size for a vegetarian entree.
