Escarole Sauteed with Black-eyed PeasThis recipe is an old favorite of ours. I discovered it on the Weightwatchers website when I was doing their program several years ago. The black-eyed peas add protein, which can be difficult to get enough of when following a vegetarian diet.

Sliced Sweet Potato with Garlic Oil & Fried SageNow that the weather is cooling off, I’m feeling inspired to do more cooking! Jason and I tried this dish last night and we thought it was very tasty. Although the recipe calls for a fair amount of oil, it’s lower calorie than you might think, since the sage only absorbs a small portion of what is used for frying.

Baked "Fried" Green TomatoesI really love fried green tomatoes. Apparently other people are acquiring a taste for them as well, because they are now available in most of the fancy restaurants around Raleigh! In this recipe, the green tomatoes are breaded, brushed with butter and then baked to reduce the calories.

Spicy Collard Greens

Spicy Collard GreensThe state farmer’s market is close to my house and I’ve been taking full of advantage of it. They have such a great selection of fresh fruits and vegetables that are bursting with flavor. Of course, here in the South, you’ll find traditional southern veggies such as collards! Collards are green leafy vegetables that are somewhat similar to spinach, but they don’t get as limp when cooked and they are a little bit chewier as well. This recipe spices them up with white vinegar, garlic and red pepper flakes

Basic Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Basic Oven-Roasted AsparagusThis side dish is extremely easy to make. When choosing asparagus at the store, opt for thicker spears that will not dry out when roasted. Also, reheating the asparagus tends to make it become very shriveled. If possible, only cook what you will be eating with the current meal.
