Tofu Tikka Masala with Edamame & Quinoa Parsley In My Teeth 2

Tofu Tikka Masala with Edamame & Quinoa

I can't seem to get enough curry lately. Indian restaurants usually feature Chicken Tikka Masala on their menus and it's one of my favorites. I love the flavors of the sauce but wanted to make it vegan, as well as shed some calories and fat by dropping the ghee (clarified butter), oil, and heavy cream.  This sauce has all of the flavor without the … Read More...

Melon Banana Smoothie with Fresh Basil

I think I just discovered my new favorite smoothie. My usual "go to" version has a base of banana, blueberries and raspberries.

And it's a good thing I … Read More...

Grilled Blue Cheese Green Apple & Arugula on Pumpernickel

Holy Mackerel! This ain't yo mama's grilled cheese! Chewy. Gooey. You know you want one! This isn't one of my typical low fat, no guilt recipes. Although I dare say it has less calories and a teensy bit more nutrition that your standard grilled cheese. And tons more flavor. This is grilled cheese all grown … Read More...

Curried Okra & Potatoes

I didn't intend to post two curry recipes in a row, but I've been on a curry kick. In typical fashion, the weather in Chicago is fluctuating between balmy summer temperatures during the day to near freezing at night. My solution is to make curry which I think works in any climate. What I love about curries is that you can play with the spices to … Read More...
