Deep-fried falafel can be a total calorie bomb. But this baked falafel still gets crispy with equally satisfying results. It's super easy, full of flavor and a really healthy, protein-filled vegan lunch!
Leeks, white beans, cremini mushrooms, parsnips, garlic and carrots combine into one creamy bowl of goodness.
Traditional falafel is made with chickpeas, but our lower-carb version is made with cauliflower rice and almond flour. You can cook them in a waffle iron for a fun presentation, or bake them to keep it simple. If you like a bit of heat, add a splash of harissa or sriracha to the tahini dressing.
If you aren't grilling avocados, you are missing out! Grilling avocados makes them creamy and smokey, and serving them with grilled chicken breasts and shishito peppers makes a satisfying meal.
This protein-rich skillet breakfast is both fast enough for weekday mornings and hearty enough for houseguests. Here, we used plain turkey sausages, but go ahead and toss in your favorite variety, such as Italian or breakfast-style.
This breakfast take on a Greek favorite skips the heavy pastry and gives you a good dose of greens, along with heaps of feta and creamy ricotta for a satisfying start to the day. Make it ahead of time and simply warm it through in the toaster oven in the morning.
Squash stands in for rice in this remake of the traditional Spanish dish. You can use butternut squash or yellow squash — we recommend spiralizing the veg first, then cutting or pulsing in the food processor to get rice-size pieces. If using yellow squash, cutting it is a safer bet since the veg is so delicate. Check the labels when you are purchasing chorizo as some brands contain sugar.
This take on burgers ditches the buns in favor of a collard green wrap and subs in baked carrot fries for the traditional fries that are usually cooked in processed oils.
An almond flour coating gives these spicy bites a crispy exterior without the need for bread crumbs. Paired with a dip made of heart-healthy fats, you have a satiating side. Serve it hot right from the oven for best texture.
