Appetite for Reduction Giveaway


I've enjoyed everything I've made so far from Isa's Appetite for Reduction. "125 Fast & Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes" Although I imagine a lot of you have it already, somehow we've ended up with an extra copy, which I'm giving away! With the holidays coming up, it's a great idea to make lower calories meals so we can enjoy all of the treats even more. Here are a few of the things I've tried, and if you have this book and are not entering the giveaway, tell me which recipe I must try next.

Mango BBQ Beans
over Mashed Yuca with Cilantro & Lime

*Loved these beans, and I will definitely add mango to my beans again. However, I will not add any red pepper flakes to this recipe next time because my mouth was on fire! The Mashed Yuca was interesting (in a good way)! I don't think I'd make it again because yuca takes a lot of work; it's really tough to cut through and all waxy, etc. However, if you've been curious to try yuca, this would be a fun recipe for you to make.

FRESH TOMATO SALSA DRESSING

*Always love fresh salsa.

BIG FAT TACO SALAD
with Fresh Tomato Salsa Dressing
and
GUACAMAME

*I'm a big taco/taco salad fan, so this couldn't have been a miss with me. The guacamame (avocado with edamame) is definitely not as flavorful/mouth-watering as regular guacamole, but I love that it cuts the calories and adds protein.

QUINOA, WHITE BEAN, & KALE STEW
with FRESH CORN & SCALLION CORN BREAD

*I was out of quinoa, so I subbed sprouted rice. I also subbed turnips for parsnips. I like that this stew pushed me into eating vegetables I don't get a lot of, like turnips and leeks. For the cornbread, I couldn't find scallions at the store, so I omitted those. Good, reliable stew and bread.

  10. I already have it, so don't enter me, but it is a great book, no? Try the chickpea piccata if you haven't already, and the seitan/mushroom stew. OMG, sooooo good. I will say that I will probably never make the edamole or guacamame or whatever--I love avocado too much, fatty or not.
