Ratatouille Bake

This one is very easy to make, and is easy to make ahead, which is good for families. I use brown rice, so I let it cook a while longer so that it would be done (about an hour).

Quinoa Vegetable Jambalaya

I found this recipe yesterday doing a google.com search for eggplant, zucchini and quinoa–the ingredients I had on hand. Anyway, I added some ingredients and took away the oil and made it last night. It made a good bit, and it was very good and filling.

Grilled Bean-Filled Zucchini

Here’s a recipe that’s great for cooking on the barbeque grill, but it can also be done in an oven (20-30 minutes at 350 degrees). It has almost no fat and is appropriate for the McDougall Maximum Weight Loss and Fuhrman Eat to Live Programs.

Most practically, though, these “magic carpet” travels bring me to insights of the moment in my practice–fresh ways of understanding or implementing what I have […]
