Zucchini & Tomato Gratin

Monday, September 24, 2012


I love how simple the ingredient list is for this zucchini & tomato gratin. And unlike most gratins, this healthy rendition is devoid of cream or butter, solely featuring the veggies with a small amount of cheese.

Bean Chowder

Thursday, March 3, 2011


This hearty two-bean chowder is a healthy comfort food, perfect for the cold winter weather we've been having. Mashing a portion of the beans is a healthy way to make the soup thick and creamy like a chowder.

French Onion Soup

Wednesday, August 11, 2010


This hearty soup can be a satisfying main course or a filling side dish. It is simple to make, just allow up to an hour to properly caramelize the onions. {Although I have to admit that I recently made it when I was short on time and I cooked the onions at a higher temp for only about 30 minutes and the soup still turned out great.}

Start your teppanyaki-style feast with these veggies while your family is hungry, and before their plates are piled with rice and meats. They shouldn't complain too much because the teriyaki glaze makes the veggies taste like candy.
