Eggplant Supper Soup - version 2

While this recipe, at first glance, has a pretty high calorie count for a soup (335 calories/serving) you must realize that it is a MEAL in itself with 18 grams of protein, 27 grams of carbohydrates and 5 grams of fiber, it's a great meal!

A variation from my first variation:
lean ground beef (organic, grass fed)
Gluten-free pasta + add white beans (for potassium)
homemade stock

Oyster Artichoke Soup

I got the original recipe from my best friend's mother who had it in her family for a good while. It originally had cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soups as well as light cream... I had to adjust it for gluten and dairy intollerances in my family, and I think I've got a great new dish. No one can tell what's missing! (and it's healtier too!)

Creamy Cauliflower Soup

You will NOT believe that this is cauliflower! Scrumptious!

Miso Soup

Our favorite quick weeknight soup.

Miso Dressing (1 Tbs)

Wonderful on a salad made of fresh Asian greens (like tatsoi) and spinach, or over vegetable stir fry with brown rice or buckwheat soba noodles.

Kale Salad

The mixture of flavors in this salad is fantastic... even better when the ingredients are in-season. My brother-in-law, who "doesn't eat kale" had two helpings!

Brigitte's Salad

Inspired by the cold salad that Brigitte recommends to Lucky in the book "The Higher Power of Lucky" by Susan Patron.

My kids loved the book - and the salad as well!

Best Hummus Ever

A surprising ingredient makes this version butter-y and irresisitable!

Incredible! (1 rating)
Peanut Butter Honey Whole Wheat Cookies

When you're looking for a small treat that is "clean" (no processed sugars or flours), this is a great option. At 140 calories, 3.4 g protein, and 2.5 g fiber, not bad for a cookie. One is enough to fill you up! (Or make them in 1 Tbs drops (instead of 2 Tbs) and cut those number in half.)

Adapted from a recipe given to me by my mother...

Clean Cocoa

A clean-eating alternative to the seasonal favorite.

Lasagna w/ Chard & Eggplant

A healthier alternative to traditional lasagna. I created it from 2 of the vegetables I had ripe in my garden late this summer and actually cooked it on the grill! Tastes just as good in the winter.

Spicy Sichuan Noodle Sauce

Nutritional Information is for SAUCE ONLY. (Serve with rice or other asian style noodles OR angel hair pasta. Garnish w/ sliced scallions & bean sprouts, if desired.)

Eggplant Supper Soup

Mom's old recipe with a few healthier changes - more veggies and replace the ground beef with ground turkey. Still the same great flavor!

Zang's Honey Poppyseed Dressing

Zang's Restaruant in Denver, Colorado provided this recipe to the Denver Post several years ago. I have modified it, but only slightly. It's amazingly good with fresh greens and fruit (I like spinach, feta cheese, and blueberries

Broccoli Salad

Rave reviews at picnics!

Hummus Surprise

A surprise ingredient gives this hummus a rich, buttery taste. The process gives it its' smooth texture.

Chocolate Sheet Cake (reduced fat)

Made with evaporated cane juice and no butter, this cake is a cleanER version of the old favorite with only 1/2 the fat.

Great for veggie dippin'!
