Sometimes you really want the burrito. Sometimes, the best part is the fresh salsa verde! This salad ditches the guilty burrito parts and distills a veggie burrito into a healthy bowl of fat-free vegan technicolor delight.
This sea salty, citrusy quinoa dish is as healthy as it is decadent. This serves just as well for a light dinner as for a mimosa brunch.
This versatile dish blends in nicely with Mediterranean side dishes, classic Americana or rich Western European sides. I particularly enjoy this with a tangy Israeli salad. It’s an easy and affordable chicken dish to make but makes a great presentation at the table. Feel free to substitute mozzarella or bleu cheese in lieu of the feta if you want a richer flavor.
These sweet and salty hors d’oeuvre dish takes only minutes to assemble and is always one of the first to go at a party. They are incredible to have at a wine tasting or cocktail party, as they don’t require anything more than a toothpick.
This healthy, low-fat pita wrap is perfect for a quick lunch or post-workout breakfast. You can spice it up with a hard boiled egg or tomatoes or a dash of salad dressing, but this is the super vitamin protein pita foundation.
This recipe is really accommodating for whatever you have on hand-- chiles, peppers, tomatoes, cabbage, even pineapple. I love making it when I have weird amounts of leftover vegetables and a little bit of chicken in the freezer.
This pan-asian flavored matzoball version is the best I’ve found so far. The most exciting part of this recipe is pan-frying the matzoballs to make them crispy on the outside. Now the matzo balls: I’ve made them from scratch a few times and they‘re never as good as the $2 packets from the store. The ball brand is really a Coke/Pepsi thing. I think Manischewitz balls taste like perfection and Lipton reminds me of eating paste but I’ve also heard the opposite. You won't be using the soup mix, so it's okay to just buy the ball mix. Anything but the balls floating in cans because ew, ew, ew.
This salt and citrusy fish dish is a blast of flavor and protein in a low-fat, omega 3 dish. While you can substitute almost any fish in this recipe, tilapia is a great choice for low cost and mild flavor.
Enjoy this cheesy, decadent side dish on a cold winter evening on its own or as a rich side dish. It’s quick, easy, affordable and makes a great reheat lunch for a chilly afternoon. This is a vegetarian recipe but feel free to drop in any leftover meats and cheeses you have on hand.
