Skinny Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

Spaghetti squash is a winter squash that's famous for the way it strings apart into long strands when it's cooked, and it's a low-calorie and low-carb vegetable. I love spaghetti squash, but I think one key to enjoying it is to learn to appreciate the slightly crispy texture and fresh flavor of the squash itself--not try to pretend it's pasta. ...more

Skinny Veggie Crock-Pot Lasagna

This time of year is tough. It's cold outside so all you want to eat is comfort food, but you probably overdid it during the holidays, so you also want something that's a healthy option. I've got you covered with this Super Easy Skinny Veggie Crock-Pot Lasagna from Pinch of Yum for this week's Meatless Monday pick. Everything goes directly into the slow cooker (including the dry noodles), so the recipes comes together quickly, and it has a generous amount of veggies to balance out the noodles, sauce and cheese (which can be low-fat). ...more

Browned Sautéed Cabbage

Admittedly I'm a bit of a freak for cabbage, so whenever I see a new treatment for this ultra-healthy vegetable, I'm excited. When I spotted this Browned Sautéed Cabbage from Nami Nami, I could just tell by reading the recipe that this would taste amazing (at least to a cabbage lover like me.) I'd happily eat this as a Meatless Monday dinner, but you might want to have it as a side dish if cabbage isn't considered a main attraction at your house. Pille says this reheats well, so if you're lucky you might have some leftovers to eat for lunch. ...more

Meatless Monday: Cheesy Brussels Sprouts Lasagna

I'm aware that there are people who have yet to appreciate the pleasures of Brussels sprouts, and to anyone who's a Brussels sprouts avoider, I probably should be sorry that I'm posting a Meatless Monday dish with Brussels sprouts two weeks in a row.  But the truth is, I was so excited about this recipe for Cheesy Brussels Sprouts Lasagna from How Sweet It Is that I just could not convince myself to wait any longer to feature it here.  I'm a Brussels sprouts fanatic, and I love everything about the sound of this recipe!  Fellow Brussels sprouts lovers, ho ...more

Meatless Monday: Gluten-Free Chickpea 'Pizza'

All over the world people combine chickpea flour with water, olive oil and seasonings and make a gluten-free and vegan type of flatbread that's eaten like pizza. This type of chickpea flour flatbread is called socca in the south of France, farinata or cecina in Italy, and faina in Argentina, and there are many more lesser-known names for the dish as well. ...more
