Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes

Some people will call this “smashed potatoes” as I prefer to leave the skin on. If you prefer, feel free to peel your potatoes before boiling them.

Carmalized Bananas

These make a great topping for French Toast.

Almond Cinnamon French Toast

This was something I whipped up for breakfast this morning. I just used white bread instead of true french bread to shave several calories. The almond extract was yummy!

Pasta Melanzana

You can use any interesting shaped pasta for this - I prefer rotini or bowtie. The salt is to taste and, depending on how much you use, will change the sodium in this dish

Nachos Bayou Grande

Vegetarian Entree - Easy and Fast, this recipe is high in calcium, folate and iron, you won't miss the meat in this blend of flavors and texture. For some kick, add some salsa or jalapenos.

Very Good (3 ratings)
Eggplant Bake

This dish is similar to eggplant parmesan, but is baked instead of fried. I use a chunky spaghetti sauce to add extra veggies to the mix. I also like to serve it over couscous. It is higher calorie than some of the options on here, but is well-worth it in nutritional value

Vegetarian Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Spark had a "featured" recipe today for Broccoli and Cheese soup. I'm a vegetarian, and theirs contained chicken broth. I searched and couldn't find a good vegetarian option on Spark, so decided to share mine.

Savory Vegetables over Tomato Couscous

Steaming couscous with a can of chopped tomatoes adds flavor and color without any extra work. You could also stir in some edamme or sauted tofu for an extra protien burst.

Dilled Green Beans

Quick and easy to make - yet unique. This special southern style tradition is an excellent way to add a little bit of extra fiber along with a huge burst of flavor!

Garbonzo and Tomato Curry

Serve with Basmati or Flat Bread

Tasty Microwave Muffin for One

Apart from being absolutely delicious, fast and easy, this muffin for one is low-carb and packs a protein wallop! Try it for breakfast!

Toasted Spaghetti with Spinach and Garbonzo Beans

This dish is a nutritional powerhouse - SHHH!! Just don't tell the kids. Lightly toasting the pasta gives it a slightly nutty flavor. The sauce is slightly spicy - a true hit all the way around. It's also easy and fast!

West African Groundnut Stew

The recipe for the stew was adapted from a version from Sierra Leone, Africa.
