Marguerite Shaeffer's Grilled Bean Burgers (shown at right) are a staple at her Sewell, New Jersey home. The meatless light burgers take just a few minutes on the grill, and they’re filled with fiber, so you’ll be pleasantly satisfied in no time.
Pair the burgers with the fabulous Fresh Broccoli Salad that Dana Herbert mixes up to dazzle guests in Goshen, Utah. It’s a hearty, creamy salad just packed with garden-fresh goodness and loads of crunch.
- Apple wedges
- Chocolate chip cookies
- Keep in mind that salsa makes a convenient, low-fat alternative to condiments like sour cream or mayonnaise.
- To streamline preparation of the bean burgers, purchase shredded carrots. Stir leftovers into salads, stir-fries or casseroles to boost nutrition.
- If you don’t have dried cranberries for the broccoli salad, Dana says golden raisins make an excellent substitution.
