Pesto Zucchini “Pasta”

Creating noodles out of zucchini and other vegetables (even fruit!) is fun and easy. There are a number of tools you can use from hand-held designs to spiralizers.

Smoky Bean Sliders

What if I told you that you could enjoy all the flavors of a burger without any saturated fat while adding in healthy foods like spinach, beans and brown rice?

Butternut Squash Risotto

Warm rich and creamy! This risotto recipe is always a hit at holiday gatherings and potlucks. Cubed sweet potato works well as a substitute for the squash.

Apple Curry Quinoa

This is by far my favorite quinoa recipe. The combination of sweet and savory is divine. I usually make double the amount if serving a crowd or just so I can have leftovers 🙂

Quinoa Fried Rice

This dish comes together quicker than you can order take-out. But the real beauty of this "fried" rice is its nutrient density - and it's practically fat-free. ♥

Zucchini Quinoa Lasagna

I know, I know...quinoa instead of ricotta? I'm half Sicilian so even I was a little skeptical. You won't believe the rich flavors this recipe delivers.

Southwest Quinoa Salad

A quick and easy recipe that delivers all you're looking for in a mexican-inspired dish. Low-fat and plant-based doesn't get any better than this!

Chickpea Salad

For years, I have enjoyed a sunflower seed-based "tuna" salad. But sometimes I want to keep my daily fat intake super low. Enter the CHICKPEA!
