Zucchini and Potato Gratin

Creamy Zucchini and Potato Gratin feels indulgent without the full, heavy feeling of typical cream and cheese based dishes. I think the secret is finely slicing the zucchini and potatoes using a mandolin. Make sure to have the potatoes slightly thinner than the zucchini so everything cooks evenly. Choice of shredded cheese is up to… Continue reading Zucchini and Potato Gratin

Stuffed Peppers with Chimichurri

This simple recipe packs a punch with the addition of homemade chimichurri sauce. Extra chimichurri goes well with any meat, served with eggs for breakfast, or over roasted vegetables.

Mushroom and Spinach Chicken Roulade with Gravy

One of my favorite go-to ingredients to keep it light but indulgent is fat free cream cheese. It can be found in most grocery stores, but feel free to substitute reduced fat cream cheese instead.

Vegan Balsamic Mushrooms with Spinach and Barley Risotto

The meaty portobello mushrooms in this hearty take on risotto will have you saying,  "What meat?" Going vegan has never been more delicious.

When it comes… Continue reading Vegan Balsamic Mushrooms with Spinach and Barley Risotto
