Raw dough, baby! Who isn’t in the mood for it sometimes? Jane served these at a Plant-Strong Women, Power, Sex and Food presentation and everyone loved them, right down to the very last spoonful! You will, too. Like revenge, we find this is a dish best served cold.

This is the most basic - and versatile - of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95% of them are made with either olive oil or tahini/sesame paste, which pushes up the fat content (unless you purchase Engine 2 Hummus at Whole Foods Market locations across the US). Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.

I’ve never met a Texan who doesn’t like migas. The word is derived from the Spanish word for “crumbs,” and the dish is traditionally made using eggs, cheese, sausage, tortillas and salsa. Part of the Tex-Mex food culture, it’s a dish that creates a very satisfying melody of tastes. Served with a side of healthy refried beans, corn tortillas, salsa and fresh fruit, with this dish mornings just don’t get much better.

The veggie burger. It has been made fun of, mocked and has been the joke of many menus. A frozen patty of “something,” and if you used just enough mustard or ketchup, maybe it would taste palatable. But if you’ve been paying attention, veggie burgers are JUST hitting their prime. They’re being taken seriously, and with good reason - they are easy to make, super healthy and absolutely delicious!

I love this simple and fast dinner bowl! Filled with all kinds of nutritious and delicious ingredients, it has a great variety of tastes and colors, and is truly satisfying. I always keep a few cooked sweet potatoes in the fridge so I can pop them in the microwave for three to four minutes while chopping up the other ingredients. Dinner is done in less than six minutes!

This is a great “meat” loaf recipe from one of the Engine 2 Pilot Study participants, Lynn Jocelyn. Lynn brought this to the Engine 2 pot-luck awards banquet and it disappeared before everyone could get a bite.
