Recipes I've Shared:

Shannalee's Tortellini Soup

I substituted young green chickpeas, from the freezer section of Costco, instead of the traditional (and gross) spinach.

Easy hamburger lasagne

Makes 2 9x13 pans of lasagne, 1 for now, 1 to freeze.

Shannalee's Gluten Free Corn Bread

So moist it will almost melt in your mouth. This is not low fat, that will be my next try. The apple juice adds the perfect touch of sweetness.

Turkey Thai Coconut Soup

Will be fixing up the ingredient list when I have time, have to enter it to share with husband now.

Pumpkin Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

I love the coconut in these.

Shannalee's Red Lentil Stew

As 2 cup servings, this is extremely filling. This is good with a slice or two of homemade cheesy polenta and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

Shannalee's Slightly Cheesy Polenta

This is comfort food. Add more cheese, switch to cheddar or leave it out if you like, but you will have to adjust the calories accordingly.

7 ingredient light vegetarian lasagne

you won't find any spinach in lasagne in our house!

Shannalee's light brown rice pudding

This is not too sweet, if you really want it sweeter, double the coconut sugar. Top with some fresh berries or other fruit.

Shannalee's basic thin crust cheese pizza

This can make 2 thicker crusts instead, but we like it really thin and crispy. It is quick and easy to make. Thanks for teaching me how to make this Audrey! Load it up with any toppings you want, under the cheese before baking, just remember those calories are not included.

Shannalee's Navy Bean Potato Leek Soup

Comfort Food, with hardly any calories!

Shannalee's lower-fat oil popped popcorn

This is the way we like popcorn. Rather than greasy or mushy, butter soaked and calorie laden, it is light, fluffy, crispy and just enough flavour and salt to really enjoy the actual taste of popcorn.

Indonesian Crockpot Chicken

Lovely recipe adapted from one I found a long time ago. This is a family favourite we have several times a month.

Shannalee's doctored up from mix pancakes

Extra hearty, but still fluffy pancakes

Shannalee's Simple Chicken Vegetable Soup

A comforting, warm, brothy chicken soup for when you don't feel too great.

Cheesy deep fried corn fritters

The oil was hard to calculate, as they are deep fried in a large amount, but then drained as much as possible. It may not be exactly correct.

Shannalee's Red Lentil Dhal Soup

A filling, protein packed soup.

Shannalee's lean hamburger bean chili

Hearty, low-fat chili to warm up a winter night.

Shannalee's Ginger Beef Stir-fry

Very tasty, lots of veggies, lots of protein. I would eliminate or cut the salt in half next time; there is plenty in the soy sauce.

Vegetarian FriChik Cacciatore

this is great with real chicken too, but we love our canned chicken substitute.

Shannalee's vegetarian oatmeal patties

You pretty much need to use a blender of some sort to get these started.
Good with some fat-free gravy, such as Trio, a baked potato or veggie on the side, and a big green salad.

Mexican Fri-Chik Saute

Not cheap, with 2 cans of fri-chik, but not bad protein, and really, really tasty. I will be trying it with real chicken sometime, as well.

red lentil spaghetti sauce

Serve over spaghetti, or steamed or baked cauliflower.

Black Bean soup with Sweet Potato

This recipe is adapted to my family's tastes. Feel free to change anything.

Quick Hi-Protein Fri Chik Asian Style Cabbage Salad

Not low on calories, but huge servings, huge on flavour, with lots of protein. A quick, healthy one dish meal, cut down on the proteins to cut down on calories.

Shanna's Slow Cooker Eggplant Chili

Using up the eggplant, not great, but not bad either.

Shannalee's low fat vegetarian lasagne

This is a lightened up version of the lasagne that has been our favourite for over 20 years. It needs to be made in a pan that is larger or deeper than the usual 13X9 cake pan or it will overflow while baking.

Leo's Potato Salad for a crowd

This is approximately my father in law's potato salad. Not diet food, but simple and amazingly yummy. He just dumps stuff in, and I can only guess the amounts from watching.

Mac and Cheese from a box with no butter

Not really a recipe, but to get correct info for skinnied-up Mac and Cheese from a box - could be skinnier with 1% or skim.

Garlic Tomato Chicken

Excellent served with Savoury Couscous

Savoury Pearl Harvest Couscous

A great replacement for rice or pasta. The Wild Roots Pearl Harvest Couscous has Israeli couscous, Italian orzo pasta, baby garbanzo beans and red quinoa. When making again, I will use olive oil, rather than coconut oil.

Wicked Thai Soup - Shannalee's version of UofA hospital favourite

my attempt to figure out nutrition on the hospital version that is sold once a week and sells out in less than an hour. It may not be quite the same, but really close. I started with the recipe from Food and Family blog version, and adapted it to taste more like what I wanted, adding and subtracting ingredients; it is not the same as theirs.

Sweet Kale Salad Mix - no dressing

I don't know the proportions of the costco mix, but since I use it often without the dressing, fruit and seeds, I needed the mix information.

3 Ingredient Vegetarian Chili

Usually we like spicy chili chock full of veggies, but in an emergency . . .

Shannalee's Thai Green Curry Fri-Chik

This is made with a vegetarian chicken substitute, but can be made with real, precooked chicken as an alternative, in which case, the protein would be higher. My meat and potatoes loving husband couldn't get enough of this.
