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
*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.
