Here are some recipes I’ve tried recently that resulted in very happy stomachs:
D *loved* this one:
“The Best Vegetable Lasagna
- 3 cups pasta sauce (like Classico Spicy Tomato and Pesto)
- 16 ounces 2% cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan
- 9 whole wheat lasagna noodles
- 8 ounces mozzarella cheese
- Approximately 4 cups mixed vegetables (I used spinach, carrots, sundried tomatoes, and zucchini)
Preheat oven to 400*. Spray 11 X 8 glass casserole dish.
- Combine cottage and parmesan cheeses.
- Place 3 uncooked noodles in pan.
- Cover with 1 cup pasta sauce, 1/3 cheese mixture, 1/3 vegetables, and 1/3 mozzarella.
- Repeat 2 more times.
- Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake one hour.
Makes about 8 servings, ~350 kcal per serving.”
This one seems a little weird at first glance but the end result is a terrific mixture of flavors. So easy, too!
“Dinner-In-A-Flash Salmon Pasta
This dish uses all pantry + freezer staples – and is ready in 10 minutes.
First we took a can of salmon (I buy Costco’s wild Alaskan kind) and heated it in the microwave with a cup or so of frozen peas and a handful of frozen spinach, capers (2 tbsp?), dill and kosher salt. NOTE: We thawed and drained the spinach/peas in a collander first!
Meanwhile we cooked some whole wheat pasta (Trader Joe’s) and softened Laughing Cow cheese wedges in our bowls.
And tossed it all together along with a topping of parmesan and red pepper flakes.
I just made these tonight…..I’ll let you know how they turn out after they’ve been refrigerated a while but the raw version was delish.
1 jar Futter’s Chocolate Haze (lnut Butter)
1 scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate Meal Powder (can also use cocoa powder)
1 cup BearNaked Banana and Walnut Granola (can use any granola of your choice)
1/4 cup honey”
“Raw Whipped Cream
1 1/3 cup raw cashews, soaked 2 hrs
1/2 cup water
3 tbsp agave (or 2 dates)
1/2 vanilla bean (I threw the whole thing in my Vita; if you do this in a food processor, sub 1 tsp vanilla extract)
Blend all ingredients in your Vitamix until smooth and fluffy. To make this in a food processor, start by blending all ingredients, minus 1/4 cup water. Stop frequently to scrape the bowl. When the mixture is quite smooth, drizzle in the last 1/4 cup water till fluffy.
This stuff is so decadent, it’s hard to believe it’s plant-based. Scoop over fresh berries or fruit, and enjoy!
