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.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.Chipped MushroomPeruvian cuisine is well known throughout the world for its quality and flavors. This simple vegetarian version of "Sautéed Loin" does not need meat to give it an exquisite taste and texture. It can be served with brown rice or with any other accompaniment.Gallo PintoThis simple but appetizing dish is usually eaten for breakfast in both Costa Rica and Nicaragua, although it is also served at other times of the day. It can be done with black or red beans. It is usually accompanied with corn tortillas or male bananas if desired, but for a more balanced meal for diabetics, we recommend accompanying it with a steamed salad or vegetables.Roasted Peppers and Marinara SauceThere are countless delicious ways to stuff bell peppers. Just like magic, halved bell peppers turn into little boats that are perfect for filling with various ingredients to make a simple meal with a (boat)load of flavor. This stuffed peppers recipe is one of my favorites and for good reason! It features a blend of favorite Italian and Mediterranean flavors with its tomatoes, basil, and capers, and is a truly healthy, eye-catching, and delicious side.Italian White Bean SoupWhen I first tasted this soup, I was speechless. It was so delicious--fragrant, complex, and so, so flavorful. When I saw how simple the ingredients and instructions were, I was even more stunned. You must try this soup!Mayacoba Bean SoupThe mayocoba, or Canary bean, was named after a small village in Mexico where it was "reinvented." They have a unique flavor and it is said that they will not give the consumer the usual digestive reactions that other beans can give. They are yellow and the size of a pinto bean.Thai Curry SoupThe international food aisle can be overwhelming, no? It’s hard enough to read the labels of food you normally buy, much less a list of ingredients you can’t pronounce. This Thai-inspired soup recipe meets you right in the middle, gently steering you toward more exotic flavors but with familiar ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.Black Bean, Corn, and Quinoa SaladSo much more than a salad, this recipe is filled to the brim with nutrient-dense ingredients and packed full of bright flavor.
