Easy version of tom kha gai soup. (chicken coconut soup). Rich and decadent tasting but still healthy for you! Serve it with some rice. The rice can be brown or white, jasmine or short grained (aka sticky rice). Can't always get the missing ingredients, so this is a good way to get the basic flavor of tom kha gai when missing galangal and a few other herbs. Ginger replaces the galangal (approximate), removed the fish sauce to cut back on sodium-but you can always add a few drops to get that extra taste it imparts, lime juice (real) in place of lemongrass and lime leaves. FAST soup, and makes everyone at work want some!
Steamed cauliflower with garlic and tahini in a similar manner to mashed potatos
Mexican style burrito made with soft tofu and smoked cheddar. seriously good and has made several friends open to tofu!
udon noodles fried in light sauce
Tuna and mayo inside a rice ball

Chicken empanadas-to be baked or fried. Can make them with beef if desired!
Hasselback potato with bacon, herb, and butter
Bulgogi marinade with pork instead of the traditional beef.

Mixed with Bok Choy, Kale, and a little bit of ground beef in a japanese inspired broth. Substitute the beef for any meat or omit and add more greens/vegetables/or potatoes as desired!
Serve as is or over/with noodles! Ramen noodles cooked in the broth are a delicious addition making it a full meal!
Fast, easy, no knead bread. Delicious and quick-can be modified with extra ingredients as you wish.
Vegetarian, lactose free, sugar free (if you so choose), low fat
The best Black Bean burgers I've ever had. The Blue Moose Cafe in Morgantown, WV makes this and has posted their recipe-allowing others to also post as needed. Seriously. Try it.
Lately I substitute quinoa for the rice to cut out the carbs, adding a more healthy alternative. It's still incredibly tasty though the rice addition makes the pattys hold better once it's cooked in the pan.
