This is delicious!
I substituted young green chickpeas, from the freezer section of Costco, instead of the traditional (and gross) spinach.
Makes 2 9x13 pans of lasagne, 1 for now, 1 to freeze.
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.
Vegetarian, fresh, delish!
This is the simple version.
Will be fixing up the ingredient list when I have time, have to enter it to share with husband now.
I love the coconut in these.
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.
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.
you won't find any spinach in lasagne in our house!
This is not too sweet, if you really want it sweeter, double the coconut sugar. Top with some fresh berries or other fruit.
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.
Comfort Food, with hardly any calories!
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.
Lovely recipe adapted from one I found a long time ago. This is a family favourite we have several times a month.
Extra hearty, but still fluffy pancakes
A comforting, warm, brothy chicken soup for when you don't feel too great.
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.
A filling, protein packed soup.
Hearty, low-fat chili to warm up a winter night.
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.
this is great with real chicken too, but we love our canned chicken substitute.
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.
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.
Serve over spaghetti, or steamed or baked cauliflower.
This recipe is adapted to my family's tastes. Feel free to change anything.
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.
Using up the eggplant, not great, but not bad either.
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.
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.
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.
Excellent served with Savoury 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.
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.
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.
Usually we like spicy chili chock full of veggies, but in an emergency . . .
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.
