Standard lasagna noodles made from refined white flour can be energy zappers. Here, we swap them for nutrient-dense thinly sliced sweet potatoes and top them with energy-packed ingredients such as iron-rich tofu and spinach, and nutritional yeast, which contains B vitamins.
Pinto beans lend body while also adding a dose of satiating protein and fiber to this spicy soup. Adapt the toppings to your taste — we love it with tangy pickled onions (see recipe below), but they are completely optional. Avocado, cilantro, jalapeños and radishes all make great toppers as well.
Pancakes take a savory turn with this almond and cornmeal version topped with black bean salsa and a drizzle of cilantro-infused yogurt.
Top flatbread with sweet-and-savory chicken breast for a tasty low-fat, high-protein dish.
This textured, complex salad is lightly dressed with our sweet and pungent Russian dressing, but feel free to add a little more if you like. Fennel gives it a gentle licorice note, while the Parmesan adds a satisfying umami touch. Don’t skip the Crispy Quinoa Topper, it adds a crunch that you won’t want to miss.
Cutting chicken breasts into thin cutlets helps them cook quickly on the grill. A quick blender sauce with fresh basil and lime is smothered over top for a zesty, spicy kick.
