With Thanksgiving (and therefore lots of over-indulging ) around the corner, I am making extra sure to mix in some lighter meals over the next few weeks. Though with the tortellini this is surely not a 'low calorie' meal, I think it is a much healthier alternative to a pasta dish smothered in meat and a heavy-duty cream sauce! It however still hits all the fall comfort marks, and is a great vegetarian recipe. I hope you enjoy!
A simple and healthy cauliflower puree soup recipe. It can be made vegetarian, or dressed up with some crab meat or scallops too!
With some fresh tomatoes finally coming out of our garden, I had to put together a special dish for them that would really bring out their fresh flavors! With a mashup of some of my absolute favorite flavors (balsamic, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and of course CHEESE!) I put together these delightful little toasts that would be a wonderful appetizer or dinner any time of year!
Fall is here, and therefore I am craving hearty stews. Casoulette is one of my favorite treats when the weather is dreary, but it is not the healthiest option. I decided to attempt a vegetarian (vegan actually) version of this French staple... of course not the same without meat, but accomplishes a much healthier dish and is a lovely fall supper!
This healthy Alfredo Sauce recipe uses a cauliflower and broth base, instead of butter and cream. It does still have some cheese, but is far healthier than the alternative. I mixed in some summer peas and made this dish as my Meatless Monday dinner. I hope you enjoy this very easy recipe!

I haven't been diligent enough about cooking vegetarian more for my family, so I am back on the wagon this week with our Black Bean Tortas for our Meatless Monday dinner!

If your New Year's Resolution was health-related, here is a fun recipe you can even get the family to 'bite' on. My version of pizza bagels, using zucchini in place of your bread. A lower-carb version for sure!
Chickpea Gyros - one of my favorite Meatless Monday Recipes! I find them very filling and my husband and toddler agree. This is a vegetarian recipe that no one should pass up!
