Rainbow Soba Noodles with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
This is a light, fresh dish with Asian-inspired flavors. The raw vegetables provide color and crunch to the salty, savory noodles. If you don't have hoisin sauce, you may want to substitute a little miso paste and/or soy sauce. It is not meant to be heavily sauced - if you like saucy noodles, you may want to double or triple the sauce portion of the recipe. It is best served at room temperature.
Easy, Healthy Breakfast Casserole
This vegetarian breakfast casserole is quick and reasonably healthy. Makes a great Sunday morning dish!
Savory Pan-Fried Chicken
I made this using both real chicken for my boyfriend and a vegetarian "chicken" cutlet for myself. It has a lot of flavor while staying reasonably healthy, which I love!
Vegetarian Chickpea Salad Sandwiches
This vegetarian (or vegan, with Vegenaise instead of mayo) is a great substitute for chicken or tuna salad. Personally, I think it's even better!
Low Fat Corn and Potato Chowder
This vegetarian chowder is low in fat with a mix of savory and sweet flavors.
Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken
This is a tropical tasting dish that is just as good vegetarian as it is with chicken! Honey and mango lend the sauce it's sweetness, but it's nicely countered with salty tamari and spicy hot sauce. Serve over rice or noodles.
Roasted Garlic Pistacho Pasta
This dish is great because it's quick and satisfying without being too heavy. The white wine and onion provide a sweet flavor which is nicely offset by the tart cheese. The roasted garlic and pistachios provide depth and crunch without overwhelming the other flavors.
BBQ Hawaiian "Chicken" Pizza
This yummy pizza is vegetarian but can be made with chicken. Instead of being baked in the oven, it is cooked directly on the grill! This makes it crispy and fast. You will need a gas grill, as you need to be able to change heat levels during cooking. If you like crispy pizza, this is for you.
Spicy Campfire Soup
I make this soup while camping - it's simple and quick, and all it takes to make is a pot, foil, and a chopping knife. Cook it right over the campfire! You can substitute any veggies or spices you like, but these are my favorites.
