Healthy Dinners in Bountiful Bowls

These healthy recipes for dinner are filling while helping you eat more vegetables.


| November/December 2015


When we think of one-bowl suppers or meals, it’s usually a starch like pasta, rice or mashed potatoes as the base, topped with a mélange of meat and vegetables. These days, lots of folks are looking to replace those carbs with lighter fare, like vegetables, prepared in creative ways – and not lose out on taste and heartiness. Whether weight loss is your goal, or you’re just trying to eat more vegetables, these recipes will help you lighten up these easy one-bowl meals and inspire you to try your own creations with cauliflower, spaghetti squash, zucchini and butternut squash as your bowl “base.”

Another simple bowl “base” is shredded cabbage. Top it with just about any hot vegetable or meat sauté, which will soften the cabbage and fill you up with a tasty, nutritious meal. I always keep a head of cabbage in my refrigerator because it makes such an easy, healthful dish with very little work.
