The last few days I have been eating vegetarian. Here are a couple tasty recipes.
Primavera Salad a la Trader Joe's
I love LeBoulanger's Primavera salad, but it is so huge and high in calories due to the dressing they use. Here is a lower calorie and lower fat recipe with ingredients all available from Trader Joe's. The best part is the dressing. At 25 calories per 2 tablespoons it doesn't get any lower in cals! I whip up this salad at work in less then five minutes.
Eggplant, Black Beans and Zucchini
This was pretty tasty. Reminded me of Rachel Ray's Black Bean Chili, but spicier. I didn't have any eggplant on hand so I doubled the zucchini. I also added some spinach to get in some more greens. The recipe calls for a tablespoon of chili powder but I was a woosie and only used 1/2 a tablespoon. The chili pepper gives it a great kick of flavor.
