Neighbor_Nancy's Bean Burritos

I use Vegetarian Refried Beans, as actually lower in fat! Top with yogurt cheese for probiotic boost!

Nancy K's Chicken Salad

Great lunch and snack option, particularly when not paired with bread!

Nancy K's Green Smoothie

A great way to start off the morning!

Veal Stock, Faux

Love Ossobucco, but won't pay $ for veal bones with which to make stock when this is so good!

Italian Salmon a la Neighbor Nancy

Easy and delicious, a family staple in our home!

Modified from a Wish-Bone Recipe.

Quinoa with Toasted Sliced Almonds and Dried Cranberries

Our favorite quinoa (keewah) dish. Nutty and a little fruity. Unlike wheat or rice, quinoa is a good source of lysine. It is also gluten free and has more fat than most grains. Store in refrigerator.

Bulgar Pilaf, Turkish Style

This is my adaptation of a Turkish side dish, Bulgur Pilavi. Excellent side dish with all kinds of meat dishes, particularly lamb.

Nancy's Made Up Turkish Meal

This is my version of a meat sauce to pour over rice. The sauce is also used as a base for something called "steam kebab," a Turkish recipe that is a favorite in my family.

Tangy Bean Salad with Carrots, Tomatoes & Parsley

This mildly tangy bean salad is delightfully refreshing, high in fiber and protein and relatively low fat. Great for lunch in whole wheat mini pita (to which I add thinly sliced avocado and mild provolone cheese). My husband loved this! I only eat half a mini pita. Note serving size for the bean salad is calculated for 4.


Beat Up Chicken Breast with a French Twist

Our favorite chicken recipe, served over bow tie pasta (preferably whole grain pasta, of course!). Beating the chicken breasts helps make them more tender. I buy large chicken breasts and can only eat half of one, but the serving size and nutrient information listed is a for a whole breast.

Neighbor_Nancy's Neighborly Delights
My recipes benefit from using fresh organic ingredients. They tend to be lower in fat, higher in fiber & protein. Some of my favorite recipes are adaptations of Turkish recipes. These will take longer to prepare or cook, but well worth the effort!
