Cinnamon-Glazed CarrotsThese carrots are an extremely easy to make and they make a tasty side dish. The glaze is made with apple juice concentrate and cinnamon. I like the contrast of the sweetness of this recipe when served with a spicy or savory dish.

Taco Salad

October 22nd, 2010 by Elise Printer friendly version Printer friendly version No comments »
Vegetarian Taco SaladI had a craving for Mexican last week, so I made this tasty salad. I also made my own Tomatillo Salsa to dress it with, which made it extra delicious! The salsa is pretty easy to throw together, so I highly recommend making a batch if you have the time. However, you can use a store bought salsa instead if you are in a hurry.

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 Sage

October 5th, 2010 by Elise Printer friendly version Printer friendly version No comments »
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

July 23rd, 2010 by Elise Printer friendly version Printer friendly version No comments »
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

Herbed Frittata with Edamame

Herbed Frittata with EdamameI used egg whites instead of whole eggs to lower the calories in this frittata. It contains green onions and fresh cilantro that add plenty of flavor so you wont miss the fat. The addition of edamame and fresh grated carrot makes this an unusual and very tasty breakfast dish.
