From Land'o'Lakes website, via Kal.

Apple, Goat Cheese, and Pecan Pizza

From cooking light, Oct. 2011

Cornmeal Blueberry Muffins

A nice, not-too-sweet muffin with a touch of lemon.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Spicy Sweet Potato Hummus

A different take on hummus. From the Novice Chef blog. Makes a lot! Can be frozen.

Deep Dish Polenta Pizza

Adapted from a Real Simple recipe. I've also made it with arugula instead of the radicchio. Other chopped or grated veggies could also be used.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Butternut Squash Lasagne

A delicious way to use butternut squash, pumpkin, or other winter squash varieties. Could be adapted to reduce fat content. I've translated this from a recipe in a German magazine. Serve with green salad or sliced tomatoes.

Buckwheat Pancake

Recipe for one pancake - can be topped or filled as desired!

Hokkaido Pumpkin Cream Soup

Hokkaido pumpkin is also known as ambercup pumpkin. It doesn't need to be peeled. I used a soy-based, non-dairy creamer. Sour cream could also be used.

Bean Burrito with Avocado

This is a go-to meal for me when I don't have time to prepare something more complicated. It could also be eaten cold, just warm the tortilla slightly to soften before putting on the toppings. The sour cream is not included in the nutrition calculation.

Marzipan (Almond) Cake with Browned Butter

An easy pound cake made finer with marzipan (aka almond paste.) Very rich and delicious!

Incredible! (1 rating)
Potato, Tomato and Cheese Tart

Looks pretty, tastes delicious. Even better the next day. I haven't tried doing it yet, but doubling the recipe would make it a great potluck bring-a-long. Try using only low fat cheese to cut the calorie/fat content even more.

Black Bean Chili - Vegetarian

...from Carol Gelles, 100 Vegetarian Recipes

Olive, Oat and Whole-Wheat Bread

From Ladies' Home Journal. This is a batter bread, heavy, dense and very tasty! Freezes well.

Couscous Plinsen

Can be served with tomato sauce.

Black Bean Soup

from 1000 Vegetarian Recipes by Carol Gelles

Jam-Filled Muffins

A basic muffin recipe from the Fannie Farmer Baking Book, adapted a bit by using whole wheat flour, buttermilk, and reduced sugar jam.

Veggie Soup with Lentils

Also known as "cleaning out the veggie bin soup".

Fruit Salad Michelle

Refreshing and delicious.

Couscous with Tomatoes, Green Onions and Feta

Spicy and filling. You can reduce the amount of couscous if you prefer.

Banana Bran Muffins

Healthy and not too sweet. Very adaptable: I cut the amount of raisins and sunflower seeds; you could leave them out and still have a yummy breakfast or snack muffin. Lots of fiber, too!
