Tofu Cacciatore

Bowtie pasta loaded with mushrooms, fresh spinach, and cheese in a rich mushroom gravy. 4 POINTSŪ per serving

Vegan and all veggies! Adapted from the recipe in Vegan with a Vengeance.

Very Good (3 ratings)
Creole-Style Shrimp

Serve over cooked brown rice. Sea scallops can be substituted for the shrimp as well. 5 POINTSŪ per serving.

Broccoli Mac n' Cheese

Equally tasty, and way less fattening than boxed mac, this also has lots of fiber from the yummy broccoli florets. Try it with the cauliflower variety, too.

Vegetarian Stuffed Cabbage

Much lower in fat and sugar than it's traditional cousin, these cabbage rolls are still so full of sweet and savory flavors, picky eaters won't even notice! They're special enough for the holidays, and still really good for you.

Creamy Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

I break this out for the holidays every year, and there NEVER seems to be leftovers! Even my omnivore friends sacrifice some turkey-space on their holiday plates for this creamy, savory lasagna. All that tasty sauce will cook the pasta in the oven, so you won't spend all day in the kitchen. It's also drool-worthy if you replace 2 cups of the Alfredo with a red pasta sauce for a divine tomato cream version...

Very Good (12 ratings)
Black Bean, Mushroom, and Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers

Black beans and quinoa provide plenty of protein- no fake meat needed! I really like these served with seasoned sweet potato fries.

Very Good (2 ratings)
Smoked Salmon Breakfast Sandwich

All the tasty flavors of classic lox, but MUCH lower in fat and calories. Quick to prepare, travels well, and is also nice for a light lunch.

3 points per serving

Portobello Lasagna Rolls

Combing ricotta with mashed firm tofu helps keep these tasty pasta rolls low fat without sacrificing texture. Rolls instead of layers makes serving and storing leftovers a snap. 7 Points per serving (about 2 rolls) for anyone whose counting!
