Although avocados are high in fat, 3/4 of their fat calories come from monounsaturated fat, which is the type that may help protect against coronary artery disease. They also have 3x as much potassium as a banana. So enjoy with out guilt this healthy recipe from "The Mayo Clinic Williams Sonoma Cookbook."
This recipe was my wonderful mother's. Having been raised in California, we ate avocados every day. This is one of my husband's favorites. It can also be used on a sandwich and recently I actually smashed it up and filled eggs with it. A big hit with my friends.
From weight watchers website. This is yummy. Not your traditional falafel, but fantastic for not being deep fried and much healthier this way.
Note: If your chick pea mixture is too dry to form nice patties (which seems to happen with some of the canned chick pea brands) then just add some liquid to them to help them bind together, such as tahini, lemon juice, oil or water.
This is an easy, inexpensive, stress-free recipe even a beginning cook could whip together. Perfect for fall and winter. This dish is usually served hot, but is also very tasty cold, either by itself or mixed in with spring greens and a balsamic or "goddess" dressing. You can easily substitute other root vegetables if you don't have these on hand - Try celery root, baking potatoes, red beets, etc.
If you think Alfredo sauce- that divine mixture of butter, cheese and cream-takes time and patience and is best left to those in white toques, this 15 minute recipe may change your mind. The recipe is courtesy Real Simple Solutions.
This recipe was printed in the "Arizona Republic" newspaper when Chasen's closed its doors. Chasens was a Hollywood hangout. Elizabeth Taylor liked this chili so much that when she was on a movie set out of the country, she would have them ship it to her on location.
Asian inspired salad that EVERYONE asks me to bring, make or share. I actually had my voice on TV and won a $320 wok for this recipe! I have updated and modified it to be healthier and easier! Hope you like it! Submitted for World Tour Asian and SW catagories as it is very popular here in TX. NOTE: We never liked the 'leftover' salad as the crunchy parts got soggy except for the almonds until I got the bright idea to add the leftover salad to a tortilla and make it into a wrap. (I amaze myself sometimes! lol)
I placed the tortilla/wrapper in a skillet and flipped after the first side was warmed. Laid some sliced sandwich meat -whatever you like- on the warmed side and let the new side warm. Remove from pan and add leftover salad- drain any dressing from it to get it a little drier. Roll up and serve- WOW! Try adding other stuff to it as well. We liked raisins, dried cranberries, shredded carrots, chopped celery etc...

I got this off a Hellmann's coupon, I think. It is super duper easy & extremely good. I made this for the first time last week for friends,and they raved & raved. It's like artichoke dip already on the bread! I liked it a bit broiled on top.
This recipe was originally posted by Zenith. She is no longer active at Recipezaar, but I was and am a huge fan of her recipes, many of which are healthy and low-fat. I've made a close version of this before and it is good. Here are Zenith's original comments: "A quick and easy vegetarian chili. I don't remember where I got this recipe, but I've made it several times, sometimes trying different kinds of beans."
