If you think bolognese sauce is only for meat lovers, think again! This hearty, healthy sauce is made with lentils over sweet potato noodles. It tastes as good as it sounds.
I tried this recipe for the first time four years ago, and it remains a consistent favorite in my kitchen. I’ve used it in many different capacities — I’ve brought it to big potlucks, I’ve made it on Sundays so I had healthy lunch on hand for the next four days, I’ve made an entire thing and split it with my husband in one sitting, and with this salad, I finally convinced my meat-loving uncle that quinoa really IS delicious. Enjoy this simple, fresh and delectable 5-step recipe.
Looking for a light and easy, yet healthy Meatless Monday recipe? Try this veggie-filled, protein-rich dish that adds flavor and nutrients with tempeh. Tempeh is a fermented food that can be either made with traditional soy beans or other legumes such as chickpeas and fava beans. Tempeh is a probiotic food and it contains bacteria that are beneficial to the human digestive system. The primary bacteria is Rhizopus oliigosporus, which helps break down the phytic acid that legumes contain to enable better mineral absorption.
This is a vegan take on an alfredo pasta! It still has the rich creamy cheesy texture of a typical alfredo with the nice delicate taste but half the calories and rich in plant-based nutrients. This thick creamy sauce can be added to any pasta of your choice although I made this with zucchini pasta to further increase your vegetable intake while making it a light meal. Enjoy this tonight for your Meatless Monday meal, or any night of the week.
