Green Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad

Green Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad

This vegetarian rich salad can also be consumed as a main course, too. It’s a low-fat low-cal mildly sweet and sour mixture of boiled green beans, vinegar-soaked red onion, cherry tomatoes, and panko. We made it even more interesting by flavoring it with soy sauce and serving it drizzled with lime juice.

Feta and Vegetable Muffins

Feta and Vegetable Muffins

You gotta love those basket-like bites known as muffins. We know we do. What’s more, people should eat more often the savory ones which make for the perfect snacks. And people should make their own muffins according to their own tastes. Here is an idea: zucchini, peas, carrot, and feta. And of course, eggs!

Chocolate Ricotta Mousse

Chocolate Ricotta Mousse

Time for a mousse! One with ricotta cheese, melted chocolate, and cocoa powder; sweetened with honey and topped with crumbled pistachios and mixed berries. Here’s your next dessert, velvety, foamy, and yummy.

Cauliflower Patties

Cauliflower Patties

What if we started our next meal with a few light cauliflower patties? Or what if wanted to binge-watch while eating creamy cheesy bites with a red dip? And what if we wanted a nutritious mildly crunchy side for something? We’d cook these baked cauliflower patties!

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

OK, maybe the name is a bit of an oxymoron, but bear with us; we liked it. After you’ll try these, chances are you’ll end up asking yourself the same question: “Aren’t the French fries a bit overrated?” Serve these with a dip. White, perhaps?

Chickpea Nuggets

Chickpea Nuggets

Not all nuggets have to be deep-fried in oil. You can bake them and you can use oat flour instead of plain all-purpose flour. And it takes 50 minutes, tops, baking and all.

Salmon, Broccoli, and Pea Salad

Salmon, Broccoli, and Pea Salad

Let’s bring together the salmon and the green goodies. Salmon gets fried in a pan, broccoli and peas get boiled for just a few minutes and then they all get tossed together in a bowl. Oh, and serve this one warm! (duh)

Salmon and Potato Nuggets

Salmon and Potato Nuggets

Let’s make some nuggets for the next binge-watch party, only this time we’ll use salmon and potatoes mainly, adding some peas and Cheddar cheese in the process. And we’ll bake everything rather than deep-fry. Serve them with a red dip.

Butternut-Squash-and-Carrot-Puree

Butternut Squash and Carrot Puree

This no brainer mildly sweet puree can be your next vegan main course, or your next side-dish if you so desire. You can let your creativity run wild when serving it, or you can choose to be a minimalist. We tried both and both work.

Apple and Mango Puree

Apple and Mango Puree

This one looks very similar to one of those baby purees we feed our infants and toddlers with. So, no wonder if this is nourishing extra-smooth and velvety. Not to mention easy-to-prepare and, hmm, so tasty.

Pickled Green Tomatoes and Watermelon

Pickled Green Tomatoes and Watermelon

You can pickle just about anything. This time we added a small watermelon into the pickle jar beside the green tomatoes. It’ll wait patiently for you 2 weeks in its sealed jar.

Fennel-and-Sweet-Potato-Puree

Fennel and Sweet Potato Puree

“Incredibly velvety, so smooth, sweet, yet savory, mmm so scrumptious!” This is what will cross your mind while eating this fennel and sweet potato puree. The boundary between puree and creamy soup is blurry. In this case, it depends on how much stock you’re adding when you start the blender.
