The beauty of this Lebanese Lentil Soup is that it tastes rich and creamy but contains no added fat, which makes it a perfect recipe if you’re trying to lose weight.
Give your balsamic vinegar salad dressing a whole lot of zip with this recipe, plus garden-fresh complexity, compliments of the fresh basil, garlic, and shallots. And all for much less sodium, fat, sugar — and money — than most store-bought vinaigrettes. This dressing will keep well in the refrigerator for about one week.
Store-bought varieties of meatless meatballs tend to be high in sodium, and pricey. Try this simple recipe. Maybe even get the kids and grandkids involved! They’ll love molding their own little balls, and will want to sample their creations come dinner. At the supermarket, you can usually find meat substitutes like Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) and Textured Soy Protein (TSP). Serve with whole-wheat pasta and freshly diced tomatoes and/or low-sodium marinara sauce.
