Tuna Cashew Casserole

There are many different variations of this recipe. Where I added cannellini beans, some people use water chestnuts or chopped green pepper. You can also try cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom. Some people even use broken ramen noodle bits instead of chow mein noodles. More

Healthy & Delicious: Baked Wheat Bulgur with Sweet Potatoes and Almonds

While quinoa and barley are undoubtedly tasty, wheat bulgur is my flat-out favorite whole grain. Nutty, substantive, and slightly sweet, it's a versatile base for a variety of flavors, and can stand on its own as a main course.
