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.
