I love comfort food! I mean, who doesn't? Nothing is better than a great, big bowl of homemade mac-n-cheese or a big bowl of fried potatoes to lift your spirits. Unfortunately, much of what reminds us of weekends at grandma's is full of cholesterol, saturated fat, and a glut of excess calories.
Never fear! There is a way that you can still enjoy those "down home" flavors, without any of the guilt. This week, let's take a look at comfort food made healthy!
Potato Salad with Dill Mayo
This dill potato salad is a creamy, flavorful delight and, yet, it contains absolutely no eggs or dairy. The "mayo" is potato based and you won't believe how it gives you that same decadent, mouth-feel without weighing you down with too much fat. Do yourself a favor and make a double batch. It will go fast!
This recipe is original to Under the Median and made a huge amount. My younger boys ate it by the bowlfuls of Zucchini Mac-n-Cheese and begged for more! Creamy, decadent flavor with no added oil, dairy, or cholesterol! Yum!
Air Fried Zucchini chips
These zucchini chips couldn't be easier to make! The air fryer is a wonder of technology, which simplifies no-oil frying, making it an option for those seeking a healthier lifestyle. However, if you don't own an air fryer. No worries! I give traditional oven instructions in the post (and it's just as easy to make them in your oven!)
Stuffed Squash blossoms in the Air Fryer
This new Under the Median recipe has been the season's break out winner! It's been one of the most popular recipes I have ever created. My oldest son had a party last week with several of his college age buddies. I set out platters of food, one of which was Vegan Stuffed Squash Blossoms in the Air Fryer.
Vegetable Ragout with Lemon Basil
Although stews are often thought of as wintertime fare, this one features the fantastic flavor of lemon basil. If you've never had it, this herb tastes seriously like a fresh burst of lemon. I love it! So, I created this special recipe to showcase its unique flavor. Head on over to the post, where I tell you all about lemon basil, how to use it, and then give you the low down on how to create your own vegetable ragout with lemon basil.
5 Minute Soft Serve Peach Nice Cream
Nothing says "Summer!" like a bowl of cold, creamy ice cream. So, how about something that will give you that special ending to an evening of al fresco dining like a bowl of fruit based nice cream, without any fat, dairy, or additional calories. Yes 'ma'am!
