As I mentioned, I’m working on cooking my way through some of my cookbooks. All of these came from Everyday Happy Herbivore. Since I’m actively trying to get leaner, I’m sticking to Lindsay Nixon’s recipes for a while since they’re all low-fat/no-fat. I have three of her books, but EHH is by far my favorite.
Broccoli and Red Pepper Stir Fry. I love a good stir fry and this one was no exception. And the picture doesn’t do it justice because it was a beautiful dish. I used black rice (Lotus Foods heirloom forbidden rice–YUM!!!) and it was so pretty with the red and green!
Creamy Dijon Pasta. This. Was. HORRIBLE. I ate it but only because it kills my soul to waste food.
|I just tasted again looking at this picture. *shudder*|
Cuban Black Bean Cakes. These were a great redemption from the dijon pasta. Sooooooo very good. And that lime creme sauce? I could dip ANYTHING in that shit. It’s crazy good! I totally cheated on the Mexican rice with this one. It came from a box. Shame on me!
Do you follow a plant-based diet? Even if you don’t, do you try to include meat-free meals sometimes? If you have a favorite low-fat plant-based recipe, please share!
