Chickpea, Spinach and Garlic Soup

I made this after listening to a piece on NPR about a chickpea stew. It came out FANTASTIC. Easy, inexpensive really, fast and impressive in it's own way. Mild but flavorful. You really could leave out the cream, but it gives it a nice finish and doesn't add that much. Chances are you could leave that out and halve the olive oil, but it won't be as deep.

Picadillo with Rice and Black Beans

Key West recipe from recipezaar. Different. I get tired of mexican flavored everything but this looks like it has a bit of flare with the apples and almonds.

Low-fat Bran Muffins

This is a modified recipe of my earlier post Bran Muffins. I substituted 1/2 cup applesauce and 1 TBSP olive oil because I didn't have canola oil anyway. I also reduced cooking time to 16 minutes. They turned out GREAT. REally, best bran muffin recipe I have yet tried.

Moroccan Chicken Crockpot Stew

From B & H. Served with couscous and toasted pine nuts (not figured in to recipe nutrition info).

Bran Muffins

Got a good rating on Recipezaar. I am always looking for the best bran muffin recipe. I left the raisins out of this one though. I will try as is first, then try switching out half the oil or more with applesauce. Switching all would substantially reduce the calories.
