Zucchini Lasagna

In my attempt to make healthy meals at home, I came across this recipe for Zucchini Lasagna. Instead of pasta you use thin slices of zucchini, which makes it a much healthier option and there is really no flavor sacrifice here… it’s a tasty, kid approved recipe. As with the zucchini noodle recipe, I had also been meaning to try it for a long time, but I had felt discouraged when I read that you had to let the salted zucchini strips sit for a while, and then dry them up before assembling your lasagna. It’s a weekday… I’m busy, I don’t want extra steps. Then one day I saw a video by Everyday Food and noticed that they didn’t do anything to the zucchinis but slice them up, and it seemed to work out just fine. So here it is guys, zucchini lasagna… with no extra steps to prep the zucchini.  I hope you try it, we’re sure you’ll enjoy it!

Mexican Lasagna

This is a great dish for weekday meals. Think of lasagna, but instead of Italian ingredients choose Latin flavors, such as cilantro instead of basil, Monterrey Jack cheese instead of mozzarella. Or, you could also choose a spicier type of cheese, such as pepper jack. I’ve made this one several times already, because it’s not only a family favorite, but easy to prepare and one of my weekday meals that I make ahead to warm up later. Adding sour cream to the layers, or a little diced and seeded jalapeño can only make this even more delicious, so go ahead and add some of your favorite extra ingredients. I adapted this recipe by adding shredded chicken to every layer, but you can keep it meatless and will still be delicious.

Cauliflower Rice & Vegetable Stir-Fry

Trying to keep away from carbs? You’ll love this recipe!  It’s not really rice, it’s cauliflower that has been through the food processor before getting cooked.  I wouldn’t use it as a rice substitute in recipes such as stews or casseroles, but it’s definitely a good alternative to use as a side dish or a vegetarian meal in place of grains.  I’ve tried cauliflower in many ways, I have made it into soup, I have pureed it and roasted it; but this new cooking method has had good reviews at home, so you should try it too!  Especially if you’re into the paleo diet.
