Roasted Red Pepper, Cauliflower & Walnut Buckwheat Salad

Servings: 2-3

Nutrition Facts: Buckwheat is a rich whole grain food. It keeps the heart healthy and provides the body with essential dietary fiber.

To ensure a diet is “heart healthy,” it is recommended to consume 7 to 8 servings of rich whole grains (whole grain wheat, barley, buckwheat, whole grain couscous, etc.) and 4 to 5 servings of unsalted nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds, etc.) every week.

*Recipe derived from Yummly.

Vegetable Lasagna 1280 550 CFBNJ

Vegetable Lasagna

Servings: 12

Cooking Time: Prep: 40 mins / Bake: 35 mins 350°F / Stand: 10 mins

Just as rich — and twice as nutritious — as traditional lasagna, this veggie-packed version has only 322 calories per serving. We swapped veggies for red meat but kept all the cheeses you love.

Budget dinner price: $1.73 per serving

True, there’s no meat in this vegetable lasagna recipe, but thanks to mushrooms and four different cheeses, there’s plenty of heartiness. It’s a quick recipe, too–by calling on both frozen and fresh vegetables, we’ve cut down on some of the chopping and prep time.
