Corn and Black Bean Salad with Tortilla Wedges

Corn and Black Bean Salad with Tortilla WedgesI’m currently planning my Summer garden and didn’t have lots of time to cook this week, so I made this yummy salad. The original recipe called for store bought fat-free Italian dressing. However, when I read the ingredient label, I discovered that the third and fourth ingredients listed were corn syrup and salt, with various food colorings thrown in farther down the list. Instead, I made my own Italian dressing, which I posted earlier this week. I also substituted whole wheat tortillas to add more healthy fiber to the salad.

Italian Salad Dressing/Spice Mix

April 22nd, 2010 by Elise Printer friendly version Printer friendly version 2 comments »
Italian Salad Dressing/Spice MixHomemade dressings are healthier than their store-bought counterparts and they taste better too! The Italian spice mix that you must assemble to create the dressing makes more than you need, so you can store the rest in an air-tight container to save time when making future salads.

Vegetable Curry with Couscous

Vegetable Curry with CouscousThis is one of my favorite curry recipes. I use mango chutney in this dish which adds a tangy sweetness, as do the raisins. This is also extremely easy to make, which makes it a great recipe for Spring, when many of us would rather spend our time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather!

Moroccan Oven-Roasted Carrot Spread

April 2nd, 2010 by Elise Printer friendly version Printer friendly version No comments »
Moroccan Oven-Roasted Carrot SpreadThis recipe comes from the Passionate Vegetarian. I was skeptical that a dip made from pureed carrots would be exciting, but Crescent Dragonwagon does a good job of selling it in her cookbook. In addition, all of the wonderful flavor comes from veggies and spices, so it it fairly low-fat. I used it as a dip for veggies when I made it, but it would be equally tasty on a sandwich, or on crackers. If you want to use it as a dip, you can make it thinner by adding additional carrot juice or vegetable stock.

Classic Acorn SquashThis acorn squash recipe is one of my favorite sides because it is very easy to make and tastes wonderful.
