Pasta with Eggplant & Charred Tomato Sauce Prep Time: 75 m Serves: 2 This easy pasta takes a lot less time to prepare than its carb-heavy cousin Moussaka. It can be lightened up even more by using part-skim ricotta. Calories: 199, Sodium: 53 mg, Dietary Fiber: 5.7 g, Total Fat: 13.0 g, Total Carbs: 18.1 g, Protein: 6.8 g INGREDIENTS METHOD “PASTA”  1 large zucchini, spiralized 1. 2. 3.

Preheat oven to 325° F. Spiralize zucchini into thin strands. Wrap 5 peeled garlic cloves in aluminum foil, along with a pinch of salt and a ½ teaspoon of olive oil. Bake garlic for 40-50 minutes, until browned and soft. Sauté the diced eggplant until soft (10-12 minutes) in a large skillet using the other 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Set cooked eggplant aside. Using the same pan, combine 2 of the roasted garlic cloves, the diced tomatoes, and the diced onion. Cook for 2-4 minutes, adding more olive oil if necessary.

Prep Time: 20 m Serves: 8-10 Cooking Time: 3 h Astonishing Beef Stew A healthy and hearty winter meal, anchovies make this beef stew interesting and delicious. Make sure to brown the beef well, as crispy outsides will give it cohesion and add flavor. Also, remember to deglaze the pan that you brown the meat in. All those crispy bits taste amazing in the stew! Calories: 376, Sodium: 1760 mg. Dietary fiber: 5.9 g. Total fat: 20.6 g. Total carbs: 27.6 g. Protein: 16.2 g. INGREDIENTS                      1 large zucchini, spiralized 1 large yellow squash, spiralized 5 - 5 ½ pounds stew beef, cut into 2-3 inch pieces ⅓ cup mixed olive and canola oil 2 leeks, washed and sliced thinly 1 large onion, diced 8 garlic cloves, minced or crushed 2 carrots, diced finely 4 celery stalks, diced finely 4 ounces white mushrooms, roughly chopped ¼ cup tomato paste 2 anchovies ½ cup red wine vinegar 1 cup red wine 3 cups beef broth 1 cup canned whole tomatoes with juice 1 ½ tsp. salt 3 bay leaves ¾ tsp. dried thyme ⅓ cup chopped fresh parsley salt and pepper to taste METHOD 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Season the beef with salt and pepper, lightly. In a large, heavy bottomed frying pan, heat several tablespoon of the mixed oil. Brown the beef over high heat, adding more oil as needed. Remove, and set aside. Lower heat, and add all vegetables except spiralized vegetables. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until softened. Stir in tomato paste, and anchovies, and cook about 5 minutes to melt the tomato paste and anchovies, mixing well. Add the beef back to the pan, and any juices that have drained. Add the wine, vinegar, and tomatoes with juice. Use a spatula or slotted spoon to break up the tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Add the stock, enough to cover the vegetables and beef in the pot (this may require slightly more than 3 cups). Add the salt, bay and thyme, and bring to a boil. Simmer, partially covered, about 2-3 hours. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature, then put in the refrigerator. When fully cold, and fat has rendered to the top, skim off as much fat as possible. Put back on low heat, and reheat slowly. Cook 20-30 minutes, on low, just simmering. Toward the end, mix in half the parsley. © 2015 Healthy Happy Foodie Press. All rights reserved. www.healthyhappyfoodieblog.com

Prep Time: 30-45 m Serves: 8-10 Curried Leek & Lentil Soup Hardcore followers of the Paleo diet do not allow lentils on their menu as they are edible pulses that have been cultivated since the Neolithic era (roughly 13,000 years ago). At the same time, though, many who follow the “Caveman” diet make exceptions for dark chocolate, which is also post-Paleolithic, although it has been cultivated for 3,000 years. If you don’t want to stray outside the lines, simply leave out the lentils and turn this into a lovely, curry-scented broth with vegetables. Calories: 122, Sodium: 25 mg, Dietary Fiber: 7.4 g, Total Fat: 1.9 g, Total Carbs: 18.6 g, Protein: 5.8 g INGREDIENTS METHOD SPIRALIZED VEGGIES  3 large carrots, spiralized  2 large leeks (white parts only), spiralized 1. 2. 3. MAIN INGREDIENTS  1 Tbsp. olive oil  1 yellow onion, coarsely chopped  5 cloves garlic, minced  ¼ tsp. ginger (1 Tbsp. if fresh grated)  2 Tbsp. curry powder  1 tsp. cumin  1 cup green lentils, rinsed (optional)  6 cups water 4. 5. 6. 7. In a large soup pot, sauté the onion in the olive oil over medium heat until translucent. Spiralize the leeks into thick strands and the carrots into thin rings. Add them to the soup pot. Sauté until the leeks are tender. (Carrots will still be slightly firm.) Add the spices and stir so the vegetables are evenly coated. Add the lentils and the water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes to blend flavors. If using lentils, simmer for 25-30 minutes until lentils are tender, stirring occasionally. © 2015 Healthy Happy Foodie Press.
