    Hot Artichoke Dip: Everyone loves spinach-artichoke dip, but it’'s a fat-and-calorie fiesta. Not this recipe——yet you'’ll never know it.

    Mediterranean Veggie Burger: Eureka! We’ve found the secret “glue” that holds homemade veggie burgers together on an outdoor grill: purée the ingredients with overcooked pasta. A couple of other tips for success: be sure to pat the beans dry before you add them to the patty mixture, and use a stainless steel grill topper for a more stable grilling surface. Serve these mouthwatering miracles with your favorite burger buns and toppings. Mediterranean Veggie Burgers, 3.3 out of 4 based on 3 ratings

    Vegan Spicy Sloppy Joes: Ale adds a subtle richness to this updated version of the classic chili hash. Mound the Sloppy Joe filling on soft sandwich rolls (try our Wheat Beer and Potato Rolls) and top with sliced avocados and shredded lettuce. This recipe easily doubles for a party.

    Soy Chili with Zucchini: 30 Minutes or lessThis unusual chili uses both black soybeans and finely chopped tempeh, giving it a hearty taste and texture. Serve the chili on its own or over brown rice.

    Chili Con Tempeh: Cooking the tempeh separately from the liquid infuses it with flavor without overpowering the chili with spices. Chili Con Tempeh, 3.0 out of 4 based on 4 ratings

    Black Bean Chili: You can have this chili on the table in no time at all since you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry. We like ours made with black beans, but you can also use red kidney or pinto beans, or mix two kinds of beans together. For a change of pace, serve the chili over quinoa instead of rice.

    Old Fashioned Kettle Corn: Everyone knows popcorn's a good diet snack—but homemade kettle corn? Now that's a treat! This recipe will work with any type of popcorn, but air-popped has the fewest calories.

    Creamy Peanut Hummus: This scrumptious spread is appealing to kids and adults alike. It's delicious served with crudites or spread on shredded cabbage, arugula or thinly sliced apples and/or red onion slices.

    Chipotle Chili Non-Carne: 30 MINUTES OR LESSThis spicy chili really warms the bones on a cold evening. Chipotle powder is made from smoked jalapeño peppers. Look for it in specialty gourmet stores. To make the chili milder, omit the chipotle powder and reduce the chili powder to two teaspoons. MEAL PLAN: Delicious with cornbread. Add a tossed green salad with low-fat bottled cilantro dressing.

    Oven-Fried Truffle Chips: Short and thick, these oven-baked fries are modeled after British “chips.” Parsley, Parmesan, and truffle oil toppings give them a gourmet feel. Oven-Fried Truffle “Chips”, 2.5 out of 4 based on 4 ratings

    Salsa roja is a cooked salsa made with skillet- or grill-blackened onions, tomatoes, and garlic. Serve in warmed corn tortillas.

    Texas-style chili is a bean-free stew that’s usually made with chunks of slow-cooked beef. Here, eggplant stands in for meat in the traditional thick, spicy sauce. Serve with chopped green onions, cilantro, jalapeño, tomato, shredded cheese, sour cream, and corn chips.

    Chocolate Crispies: Almond butter not only holds these Rice Krispie Treat–like squares together, it also gives them a decadently rich, nutty flavor. Natural peanut butter and cashew butter also work well. Chocolate Crispies, 4.0 out of 4 based on 4 ratings

    Sweet Potato Quesadillas: This fork-and-knife quesadilla is great topped with salsa and guacamole. Sweet Potato Quesadillas

    Curly Oven French Fries with Seasoned Salt: The trick to perfectly cooked oven fries: blanch the potatoes first, dry them well, then roast them just until barely golden. For even cooking, cut the longest pieces of potatoes into shorter curls so they lie flat.

    Rosemary Sweet Potato Chips: Unlike white potatoes, sweet potatoes do not have to be cooked before they’re eaten. We’ve seasoned these wholesome chips with rosemary, but you can substitute other dried spices, such as garlic powder, onion powder, nutritional yeast, paprika, or cayenne pepper. Rosemary Sweet Potato Chips, 3.0 out of 4 based on 1 rating

    Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta: Talk about a fusion of world cuisines! Cubes of avocado are folded into chimichurri—an Argentinean sauce made of chopped parsley, cilantro, garlic, vinegar, and oil—to create a Latin variation on bruschetta, a classic Italian starter. Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta, 3.6 out of 4 based on 10 ratings

    Ultimate Vegan Chili: This chili is made with a base of seitan and mushrooms for a rich, thick dish that is, for lack of a better word, meaty! In lieu of chili beans such as Bush's Best Chili Beans, you can substitute or 1 can each black beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans, partially drained. If you like your chili three-alarm hot, add an extra chipotle chile or two. Ultimate Vegan Chili, 3.6 out of 4 based on 13 ratings

    Mini Loaded Red Potatoes: These sports bar–inspired creations are roasted instead of deep-fried. Choose the smallest red potatoes you can find to keep them easy to eat. Little chefs can scoop out and stuff the potatoes and then sprinkle with paprika. Mini Loaded Red Potatoes, 4.0 out of 4 based on 1 rating

    A basic hot wing sauce gets its punch from sambal oelek. Serve the wings hot with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.
