Freekeh Side

A filling side rich with complex carbohydrates and protein. You can vary the vegetables, or add legumes - e.g. your favourite cnned beans (rinsed). The possible variations are endless.

My Improvised Dahl Recipe

A hearty filling and highly nutritious vegan recipe. Pairs well with basmati rice. Tastes wonderful hot right out of the pot, but even better in the days after as the flavours settle.
For softer faster cooking lentils, soak them overnight in 2 cups of water.

Chocolate Bean Cake

I found this recipe on the blog Healthy Indulgences by Lauren

I enjoyed this chocolatey and very moist cake with a serving of fruit yogurt. I think the oil can be reduced by one tablespoon; however, the nutritional information is calculated for the recipe as given here.

Lemon (Cheesecake) Tart

A personal take on the lemon bars recipe by Spark People member Curves_N_Curls (
ail.asp?recipe=98889). Some modifications reduce calorie count by 100 Cal per serving.

Spinach Tart

The spinanch filling for this tart can also be prepared and baked without the crust, saving you a lot of preparation (cooling and baking) time and some calories as well. Just ignore the first five ingredients and start at the *To make the spinach filling* paragraph.

Minty Spinach Cream

This dish isn't exactly quick to prepare and make, but is well worth the effort. At 130 Cal. per serving, this low-fat, low-carb dish is very delicious and filling, and nutritious! - best served with brown rice.
Making this involves three different processes: cooking the spinach, preparing the tomato sauce, and preparing the cream sauce (which involves broiling a bell pepper). In the instructions I've described the preperation method in the order that works best for me; you can adapt depending on the size of your kitchen, utensils, etc. by e.g. cutting and chopping all fresh ingredients ahead.
