Butternut Squash, Apple, Onion Au Gratin
I am vegetarian and eat dairy and eggs and made this to take to my busy friend and her husband on a night that she has a class after work. They like veggie dishes and I made the dish as written except diced veggies into about 1/2" pieces. I used vegetable broth and reduced fat cheese because my bag of grated cheddar had fused itself into one big hard chunk and I didn't feel like re-grating it after chopping all those veggies. The ingredients filled a sprayed, glass 8" square dish, covered with foil and baked @350 in a CONVECTION oven. The veggies were NOT TENDER, even after an extra 20-25 minutes. Since my microwave was not working I couldn't finish in there and this flop ended up being a big embarrassment. I will try this recipe again, but will allow a much longer cooking time or may microwave veggies until partly tender before assembling casserole. Rather time consuming as written and will be more so if microwaved first too.

Sweet-and-Sour Coleslaw
I can't wait to try this. The reviews look good and it has such tasty ingredients, no added fat, not too much salt and lots of fiber. I'm always looking for dishes like this. No wonder I'm a vegetarian, I love salads and fortunately they're good for me. Thanks for the recipe!

Mango Papaya Salsa
I'm a vegetarian who is trying to lower my salt (sodium) intake and this works very well. I made it into a warm weather, one dish meal by adding rinsed and drained black beans, brown basmati rice (cooked without salt) and increased the lime juice, onion, bell peppers, added cilantro and left out salt. It could have been a little "zippier" (I wimped out and didn't add extra jalapeno)so next time I'll add another hot pepper. I got fruit, veggies, very little sodium or fat and plenty of protein and whole grain (brown rice)and it actually tastes great, all at once!
