Recently, Phil and I joined the Meatless Mondays bandwagon. It’s something little we can do to start our week off right and cut back on our calories. Plus, who doesn’t like a culinary challenge. I’m in trouble though, Phil went first and for the last two weeks he’s made the most amazing dishes that don’t make you miss the meat at all.

Week 1 – Eggplant Parmigiana with Brussel Sprouts

This is what 400-450 calories looks like…


Phil used the same technique we use for baked chicken and baked green tomatoes.


Yup, those little pieces of cheesy eggplant tasted like heaven.


The brussel sprouts were d’lish as well. Phil used the Bolthouse vinaigrette dressing to provide some great flavor.

Week 2 – Spanish Tortilla with Roasted Peppers and Spinach

Phil made this recipe he found on his Whole Foods app. However, he also added a few of his extra special touches. He added extra asparagus we had, added a little mozzarella to the inside and top of the dish, and then he also added the special spanish paprika seasoning we had picked up in Michigan at the Spice Merchants.

The taste and the wonderful veggies were so good, I had to go back for an extra slice.


I wish this was my serving size. Nope, we forgot to take pictures so this is our leftovers.


And this just happens to be my breakfast (tortilla) and part of lunch tomorrow (veggies).

Oh yeah, I’m a lucky girl. Just check out this close up shot of the ooey gooey yumminess.
