Vegetables All Year Round
I almost named this “The World’s Easiest Lasagna” because this dish is super easy to make. Using no-boil noodles and pre-made sauce cuts prep time down so much that you can throw this together pretty quickly and your dinner guests will think you slaved away in the kitchen for hours. I served this at a party once and it was a huge hit, so I can attest to it’s omnivore friendliness. It’s also cat friendly, as I caught Archie sitting on the counter nibbling on it after I turned my back. I guess that cliché about orange cats and lasagna is true! Also, this tastes even better reheated the next day. Contributed by Dianne Wenz, from VeggieGirl. Read More→Print This Post
This cauliflower recipe makes the most beautiful presentation and it’s a breeze to make. Minimal ingredients … whole foods at their best. I served these with a big, fresh salad. Perfect lunch! The trickiest part to this recipe is slicing the cauliflower, only because you will lose some. It’s mostly the inner slices that will easily retain their structure. The rest just fall apart, so be prepared to have another cauliflower recipe on hand for the leftovers! Contributed by Helyn Dunn from her blog Helyn’s Healthy Kitchen. Read More→Print This Post
Here’s a high-protein, vegan recipe for the comfort classic, stuffed pepper. Quinoa makes it tasty and healthy. Quinoa is considered a “super grain.” This cute little grain packs quite a nutritional punch. It dates back some 4,000 years and was considered “the gold of the Incas” when they realized that it increased the stamina of their warriors.
This ancient seed is one of the most protein-rich plant foods you can eat. It is also rich in magnesium, riboflavin, and manganese, and has twice as much fiber as many other grains. Contributed by Helyn Dunn, from Helyn’s Healthy Kitchen. Read More→Print This Post
