These falafels are great if you are looking for something to make but don’t have a lot of time to make it. Even the meat eaters in the family will go for seconds with this deliciously simple dish. Instead of using traditional pitas, you can use lettuce or cabbage as your wrap, as I have, for a gluten-free option. Add in your favorite vegetables to give it more health benefits and taste. I decided to go for some caramelized onions, sautéed asparagus, cucumber, beets, and bell pepper.
This soup is absolutely delicious for a light, warm dish for the cooler weather; and makes plenty for more to have later in the week. It is also so simple and easy to make. You could add some vegetable broth instead of water to make it a bit thicker and heavier, but I loved the lightness of the soup as it was. I also cut up some bread to dip in to the soup which of course is always amazing.
This is a delicious cookie for the fall season to crunch that pumpkin craving. Even with the amount of almond butter, you don’t taste the almond butter that much.

This recipe uses a vegetable soup base with indian curry spices to create a delicious hybrid of the two. It is both light and filling and very easy to make. The cauliflower rice soaks up the spices of the sauce to intensify the flavor while being a light replacement for normal rice.
When craving both something light and something Mexican try these vegan and gluten free enchiladas. The potatoes add a bit of texture and enough that even meat lovers won’t need meat to be added in. I added a bit of fresh jalepenos and some tabasco sauce on top to give a bit more kick with each bite.
Want some delicious light and healthy pancakes for breakfast or dinner? This recipe is simple and easy to make and will make even the non gluten-free friends want seconds. Add some fresh fruit and agave nectar for some great healthy toppings.
This is perfect for a light night of grilling. This meal definitely has some tasty spices with just enough heat. I cooked up some lentils for a nice side addition, but you could also bake some naan to go with it (for a non gluten free option of course). Whether or not you decided to add anything else to the meal one thing is for sure, this is a dish even meat lovers will enjoy with the amount of flavor each vegetable has.
