This is one of the few occasions where ‘fake’ tastes better than the real thing- especially since this recipe has ZERO carbs. My mashed faux-tatoes have all of the creamy, rich flavors of mashed potatoes without a single ounce of guilt.  This is a great starch alternative if you’re dieting and are plagued by carb cravings or for anyone who is looking to eat healthier. When pureed, the cannellini beans become very dense and creamy which fills you up and satiates those starchy desires.

Skip the greasy Mexican takeout and whip up some vegetarian enchiladas at home.

Mexican food tends to have a bad reputation of being fatty, greasy, heavy and, uh, did I say greasy? It’s truly unfortunate because most traditional Mexican food is none of these things and is instead filled with vibrantly fresh vegetables and big bold flavors.

These enchiladas are one such delicious way to make Mexican food good for you. While they do contain a fair amount of queso fresco, they are actually pretty healthy given that they contain a cauliflower filling and are topped with a cream sauce that is made creamy by protein-rich nonfat Greek yogurt. Like any Mexican dish, though, they do not skimp on flavor, making for a tasty and satisfying, slightly out-of-the-box meatless option.

Friday Try-day: Warm Cauliflower Salad Recipe

Escarole, cauliflower, almonds, and gruyere…Go! Okay so maybe I watch Chopped a little too often, but I can’t help how much it inspires me to get creative and think outside the box. Whenever I look into the fridge and see miss-matched remnants I take it as a challenge to create something delicious!

Cauliflower is a great vegetable to eat during this time of year as it is still in season, and is a filling component when added to a salad. Because it tends to be a bit bland when raw, I decided it best to par-boil it to enhance the flavor and mouth feel. The acidity of the dressing goes well with the nuttiness of the almonds and creaminess of the cauliflower. Lastly, using a sturdy lettuce like escarole, radicchio, or kale is optimal in a warm salad as it holds up to the heat of the cauliflower without becoming soggy.

Paneer with Peas & Chili Sauce Recipe

By Joanne Bruno | August 6, 2012

Paneer and Peas

Every so often I wake up in the midst of a coriander, ginger, turmeric-infused dream, with only one thought on my mind and one flavor profile on my lips — curry. On such days nothing will suffice but a perfectly spiced pot of Indian flavors and whatever vegetables I happen to have on hand.

This time around, it was peas and cauliflower with some paneer added in for good measure, but you can truly use whatever vegetables and protein you want. The tomato-chili sauce is spicy in the literal sense more so than in terms of heat, but it is heady with flavor and will surely stand up to whatever you throw at it.

cauliflower and carrot soup

Soups are my go-to meal. If in doubt, I get the blender out and know that a nutritious, delicious meal is a mere blitz away. Well, there may be a little more involved than blitzing some vegetables, but none the less it remains a fairly painless process. I welcome meals that require little to no effort but still deliver when it comes to flavor and soups do this better than any dish I know of. Read More
