Looking for a healthier alternative to traditional pumpkin pie? Try these Pumpkin Dream Bars. They’re a dream because they are easy to make; they contain no flour or grains; and they have a decadent, light, and moist texture.
This sneaky pumpkin pie incorporates butternut squash too! We used frozen squash for ease of preparation, but you could also sneak in sweet potato or even well-cooked carrots, though pumpkin alone is packed with fiber and beta carotene.
Cauliflower Gratin. Cauliflower is a more nutritious stand-in for the typical white potatoes in this creamy vegan gratin, which ditches the calorie-packed cheese sauce in favor of a rich, protein-packed, and dairy-free sauce.
Spicy Sweet Potato & Collard “Dosas”. Broad, sturdy collard leaves are ideal for rolling, and are a perfect stand-in for grains in rolls and wraps. Here, they fill in for chickpea dosas in a twist on Indian street food.
Makes 36 cheesecakes This petite and delectable dessert is perfect for guests or simply for exercising portion control. Give yourself time, though—you need to let the yogurt sit overnight to thicken and drain.
Rustic Rosemary-Olive Bread Recipe. This free-form loaf is rich in protein and omega-3 fats from flax and chia seeds. You can easily use brown flax instead of golden (the golden just gives a lighter color to the final product).
Makes 4 mini loaves (8 servings). This hearty loaf is moist and tender, but holds its form well enough to slice. Roasting the bananas before making the bread caramelizes the natural sugars and adds loads of flavor.
