Grilled Tofu with Cilantro Sauce

Tofu is so ver­sa­tile, low calo­rie and packed with healthy pro­tein that I’m always look­ing for new recipes.  The cilantro sauce real­ly makes the tofu stand out.  It’s also deli­cious served with grilled sum­mer squash, mush­rooms or oth­er grilled veg­eta­bles.  I mopped it up with some crusty bread, like a baguette.   Ingre­di­ents: 2 cups cilantro leaves 1⁄4 cup canola...

Gordon Ramsay’s Red Lentil Curry

Lentils are high in pro­tein, high in fiber, low in fat and packed with min­er­als. Besides being a nutri­tion­al...
