Mushroom PozoleThe pozole is a tasty traditional Mexican dish that is usually prepared with pork, and that is very easy to prepare. This vegetarian version is much lighter since it is much lower in fat, especially saturated fats. The vegetables that are added at the time of serving make this recipe provide a good amount of fiber and nutrients for the body.
Vegetarian AjiacoThis delicious Colombian dish is usually prepared with chicken, but in this vegetarian version chickpeas or peas are used to add vegetable protein and substitute meat. In this way we obtain a very tasty yet nutritious and healthy dish.
Brown Rice and Black-Eyed Peas (Gandules)Rice with pigeon peas is extremely popular in Puerto Rico, as well as other countries in the Caribbean and northern South America. Many times it is served on special occasions, such as Christmas and other parties. This healthier version is prepared with brown rice and is  100% vegan, so it contains more fiber and less fat than traditional version.
Macaroni and CheeseWith this recipe, macaroni and cheese can be not only healthy, but delicious! There will be no more need to use commonly available ultra-processed mac and cheese on the market because this version will delight both children and adults.
Shepherd’s PieThis is a traditional dish in many countries in Latin America as well in other places. The original version almost always has beef, therefore, contains lots of bad cholesterol. By using chickpeas and vegetables, this vegetarian version provides plenty of protein and fiber, as well as excellent taste and texture.
Low-Fat TamalesThis tamale is prepared with zero refined fats (such as oil or vegetable shortening) or saturated fats (such as lard), and yet retains all the flavor and texture of the original tamales. Your family will be surprised how delicious these healthy tamales are!
Red Chili SauceThis is a basic sauce that can be used to make many Mexican dishes, such as Pozole and Enchiladas. I prefer to use peppers that are not spicy, but that is really up to each person. The taste of this homemade sauce is far superior to the processed sauces that often have chemical ingredients to preserve them.
Cream of Tomato SoupIf you’re wondering if it’s possible to make a steaming bowl of blissfully creamy tomato soup without dairy, this recipe is your answer.
