Stuffed Cabbage (or Peppers)

This is a comforting, traditional eastern European dish that tastes every bit as good as my baba's (grandma's)!  Feel free to switch the pilaf stuffing to any left over grain, squash or potato in the fridge!

Eggplant Parmesanish

This baked dish uses the taste of nutritional yeast to add zesty, cheesy flavor without added fat or dairy. Baked eggplant just melts in your mouth - make sure to bake long enough to soften thoroughly

Parmesanish

I use this wonderful addition as a substitute for Parmesan cheese and as a condiment.  So versatile, it adds flavor and nutrients to simple recipes.
 
 Nutritional yeast is good source of protein (52%), dietary fiber, and vitamins, especially the B-complex vitamins.  Find it in the health food isle of your store, and found in the bulk section of health food stores. Red Star brand is fortified with B-vitamins.
 

Cauliflower Soup Kicked with Curry

This humble veg may look bland, but it's a cruciferous powerhouse of antioxidants to boost the immune system. Cauliflower becomes soft and creamy when cooked, lending it to puréeing into this thick and satisfying soup.

Portabella Mushroom Steaks

These big mushrooms have a meaty mouth feel to them and are very satisfying, yet light.
Serving Suggestions: 
-- Place on whole-grain burger buns and add your favorite condiments for a great burger, or on the plate for a great steak!
-- Serve with mashed potatoes, frozen vegetables and a hearty salad.

Avocado Smash Sandwich

Sandwiches are convenient and familiar. All a great one demands are a creamy spread, and crunchy veggies between hearty bread, and voilà: you have lunch!

Presto Pasta

Here’s a hearty meal in a hurry, even after a busy day. Adding vegetables to pasta adds fiber, nutrients and variety to any meal, and a quick way to balance out the starch.

 

Morning Muesli

Having a jar of ready-made muesli in the fridge is a safe way to ensure a satisfying and filling breakfast througout the week! Store in the fridge, as nuts and seeds can go rancid otherwise.

Try one of the many nut, seed, bean or grain milks on the marktet, (look for no added sweetener and minimal ingredients). You will find one that you love!

 

Teriyaki Quinoa w/ Chickpeas

Here's Julieanna's saucy stir-fry brimming with the flavor of garlic and ginger - satisfying for any meal.

Salad Dressings

Here's a collection of yummy and oil-free dressings that add flavor to any green salad.

Guac and Chips, Free from Oil

Guacamole is such a satisfying spread, dip and topping, commonly scooped up with fried Tortilla chips. Why not make your own chips without the oil, to dip into this lucious traditional appetizer? 

Don't be afraid of using guacamole as a topping for baked potatoes, yamsand roasted veggies, or a spread in pita or sandwiches!

Kasha and Pesto Varnishkes

Kasha and Varnishkes is a traditional Eastern European dish made with Buckwheat groats and bowtie noodles, and usually cottage cheese. I use pesto here to add the richness of the cheese and added flavor, and add veggies as well.

Use whole-grain noodles for fiber as well as flavor too!
