Scallion Scrambled Eggs with Cumin, an Iranian-inspired meal from Faye Levy's Feast from the Middle East comes together in about 15 minutes, chopping included, and is a nice twist on standard scrambled eggs. Health-wise, it's far from a low-fat dish, but that's okay. Healthy food need not be low-fat food, especially when it's packed with protein and produce like this.
A melange of several existing recipes, these easy fish patties came together in under 30 minutes, using a handful of common ingredients costing around $2. While I enjoyed the balance between tangy mustard, zesty red pepper flakes, and sweet red bell peppers, the recipe is endlessly adaptable.
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. Bob's Red Mill is my preferred brand, and I usually keep a canister in the house for fun/emergencies. (What? You've never had a wheat bulgur emergency?)
