Jorge's Pasta-less Eggplant Lasagna
Roasted eggplant strips take the place of pasta strips and feta cheese takes the place of mozarella. This is a fun and delicious twist on the Italian favorite.
Chef John's Stuffed Peppers
This recipe's roots can be traced back to the Great Depression, when farmers first began selling the unripe peppers out of necessity. Of course, we did what Americans always do when faced with a new variety of food, we stuffed meat in it.
Delicious green chiles stuffed with cheese, dipped in a special batter and fried in canola oil.
Taco-Stuffed Zucchini Boats
This is a fairly simple to make dish that satisfies the low-carb lifestyle. When I'm feeling the need for a taco, this dish will suffice! It was so tasty that even my 5-year-old approved it! We will definitely be making this again. Guacamole and salsa also make great toppings for these.
Cauliflower Fried 'Rice'
This is a low-carb option for those who want all the flavor of Chinese fried rice but none of the guilt.
This is a great way to use some of the fresh garden vegetables abundant at this time of year. Zucchini, mushrooms, onion, and tomatoes are cooked until tender, wrapped in warm tortillas, topped with cheese and baked until bubbly.
Shrimp Florentine with Zoodles
Quick, easy and healthy shrimp dinner made with zoodles instead of pasta.
Chakchouka (also called shakshouka) is a Tunisian and Israeli dish of tomatoes, onions, pepper, spices, and eggs. It's usually eaten for breakfast or lunch, but I think it's tasty anytime. And it's easy to make. It is similar to the Turkish dish 'Menemen' and to the Latin American breakfast dish 'Huevos Rancheros.'
Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches
This is a wonderful-tasting egg salad sandwich that you will definitely devour. It's really good on rye.
Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
Authentic Italian-style risotto cooked the slow and painful way, but oh so worth it. Complements grilled meats and chicken dishes very well. Check the rice by biting into it. It should be slightly al dente (or resist slightly to the tooth but not be hard in the center).
Spaghetti Aglio e Olio
No two spaghetti aglio e olio recipes are alike, but this one is pretty true to the classic method. The key is slowly toasting the garlic slices to a perfect golden-brown in the olive oil. If it's too light, you don't get the full flavor and if it's too dark it gets bitter. My advice? Do it perfectly.
