Light and Airy Tofu Tacos

No Comments | Written on March 2, 2015 at 9:58 am , by

We know, we know. When tofu’s in a recipe, it’s usually bland and has the consistency of soaked cardboard. However, we’ve finally found a recipe which includes tofu that actually tastes good! These tacos are a wonderful meatless way to enjoy some delicious Tex-Mex flavor without piling on the calories. Serve these with some low-fat cheese, Greek yogurt, and freshly prepared guacamole on the side for a surprisingly healthy meal idea. If you’re feeling like making it a first atmosphere, you can prepare some whole fruit margaritas and really get the party started!

Our Favorite (Healthy) Comfort Food Soup: Tomato and Beet Soup with Tortellini

Comfort food has a nasty reputation for being unhealthy. It doesn’t have to be that way, we say! Here’s a perfectly hearty winter soup recipe that’s low calorie, low sodium, and meatless. How’s that for a triple threat? We love to serve this with a crusty Caprese panini on the side when the weather gets Arctic. Even if you don’t like beets, we think this soup might change your mind, as their flavor is a sweet subtlety in the dish.

Caramelized 4-Cheese Potato Gratin

No Comments | Written on January 21, 2015 at 10:49 am , by

We love elegant recipes that look like they took hours to prepare. This caramelized four-cheese gratin makes a wonderful side dish for dinner parties, and you can mix up the base recipe however you please! We even love to use fresh turnips and parsnips in place of potatoes. Any melting cheeses work well here, and will yield one creamy and cheesy casserole.

This simple layered potato casserole makes a wonderful make-ahead side dish during the winter, because all you have to do when you get home is pop it in the oven. The inviting aromas of the melting cheeses and softened potatoes will fill your house, and you’ll relax into the evening.

Light and Cheesy Fried Jalapeño Medallions

Jalapeño poppers are one of our favorite classic appetizer recipes. However, they are notorious for being calorie bombs. Sure, we could tell you to stuff the peppers with veggies, oven-fry instead of deep fry, or just not eat them all together. But that’s not what we want to do.

This recipe captures all the flavor you love from the original jalapeno popper recipe, and strips away the guilt. With a light tempura batter and a hint of cheese, these are perfect for parties. Yes, you can even enjoy these with a ranch dressing on the side!
