Couscous and Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
Easy, tasty, healthy dish. I recommend adding feta for a little extra flavor.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
If you're looking to diet, then I suppose this recipe serves its purpose well: it is certainly low in calories, but not high in flavor. I added chili sauce and cumin which made it significantly more palatable.

'Angry' Italian Bean Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
Delicious! I made my own Arrabiata sauce, and used dried parsley because I didn't have any fresh. Still delicious!!

Spinach and Yogurt Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
Surprisingly delicious! I used olive oil instead of butter, and I didn't have any tarragon at home. I also reduced the amount of yogurt by a little bit, just to retain the spinach flavor. This recipe's a keeper!

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
These were full of flavor and easy to make. Like others, mine came out mushy, not crisp. No matter, they were delicious!

Lentil and Green Collard Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
A delicious healthy recipe with just the right spices! I followed the instructions exactly except that I only used about half the olive oil called for and I added a little extra lemon juice. Next time I may try doubling the greens too. This is a vegetarian's dream dish!!

Creamy Spinach-Stuffed Portobellos

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
What a surprise! I was expecting something bland and watery, given the lack of spices in the ingredients. I thought this dish was absolutely delicious. I made several substitutions because I didn't have all the ingredients: I used condensed cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of celery; frozen spinach instead of fresh; olive oil instead of vegetable oil; and I cut out the bread crumbs altogether. Healthy, hearty, easy, and full of flavor!

Pasta Primavera with Smoked Gouda

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
This is a good, healthy recipe, though I'm not a fan of carrots in pasta. I would probably double the mushrooms and cut the carrots next time. I also had to double the spices + salt and pepper for flavor.

Roasted Okra

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Easy and delicious! I love okra recipes like this one that don't bring out the sliminess of the okra, but are still moist

Cream Of Ginger Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This recipe is good, but only with some serious revisions. I used all fresh ginger instead of liqueur, only one tablespoon of flour, and no sugar (I tried with one tablespoon of sugar, but even that was too sweet). Lots of pepper helps bring out the ginger flavor, and the parsley at the end is crucial. I like that its creamy without using cream.

Chayote Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Delicious! My only change would be to use a food processor instead of a blender. I have a really good blender, but it still came out not quite creamy enough until I put it through the food processor. It might be good with a dollop of queso fresco at the end too - I'm going to try that next time.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Nice variation on the regular old steamed or sauteed broccoli. I didn't think the salt was too much, but then I'm a big salt-eater. The lemon juice at the end is crucial. I may try sprinkling on some red pepper flakes next time to add a little spice.

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
Excellent, easy, healthy dish - though I recommend adding much more garlic and more red pepper flakes for an extra kick.

Baked Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
I found this dish pretty bland. I followed all the directions, but I didn't have Italian seasoning so I just used a little oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper in its place. I also poured a little white wine into the pan before baking. They just tasted like ordinary sauteed mushrooms to me. Even cooking them with rice the next day didn't seem to liven them up much.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Nice simple recipe, but mine came out way overcooked. Next time I'll try baking it for half as long or even less.

Roasted Rosemary Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
I had to use up left-over cauliflower and this simple recipe was surprisingly scrumptious! I didn't have fresh rosemary so I used dried. Great appetizer!!

Sauceless Garden Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
This is a good, simple recipe. I used fat free mozzarella and reduced fat feta. I doubled the amount of mushrooms and added extra spinach. The mushrooms provide a lot of flavor, so you really can't have enough. I didn't have fresh basil, so I used dried basil - next time I'll make a point of going out to get fresh basil. I had to bake mine a bit longer than suggested because the vegetables were not yet tender - around 55 minutes I think. I also used regular lasagna noodles and they worked fine. Next time I'll try adding pasta sauce and artichoke hearts. The nice thing about this recipe is you can really play with the amounts and kinds of filling to tailor it to your own tastes.

Simply Marinated Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
The lemon juice overwhelmed all of the other flavors. If I made it again I would completely take out the lemon juice.

Vegetable-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Delicious, healthy, and easy! I used fresh chopped onion and garlic instead of the powders. I also cut out the mozzarella cheese to cut down on the fat content. The result was hearty and full of flavor!

Easy Chocolate Tofu Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I LOVE this recipe!! I have made it twice and both times it was a huge hit. I didn't have the vinegar either time and it turned out fine. Also, if you want a low-fat version, you can make it as a kind of pudding and just not use a crust. That's good too.
