Mom’s Magical Vegan Blueberry Pancakes
My mom has been cooking low fat vegan for years, and she's an amazing cook. This is one of her signature creations.
Easy Cannellini Bean Soup
I originally made this soup trying to recreate the side of white beans at Zoe's Kitchen, which is too high in oil to my liking.
Warm Potato Salad with Spinach and Chickpeas
This warm potato salad is a step aside from the traditional version: it's cooked in a hot skillet and doesn't call for mayonnaise or other fattening dressings.
Tofu Scramble with Black Beans and Wilted Spinach
This tofu scramble is incredibly tasty with fantastic texture, and it's super healthy for you to boot.
I love the idea of grilled corn, fresh dill and tangy mustard in my potato salad, and that’s just what I did to recreate this classic dish. ~LoveandLentils

Lots of legumes and seasonings make this chili as delicious as it is easy to make.
The creaminess of the sauce and filling contrast nicely with the slight crunch of the “noodles” in this low-fat, low-carb version of lasagna.
Okay, here comes the beauty of the pressure cooker. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, the recipe will remain the same, but you will need to allow the soup to simmer for at least an hour until the vegetables are soft.
