Recipe Swap Roundup - Vegetarian Part 2

Nicole isn't usually a fan of eggplant, but this Spicy Eggplant hit the spot after a long day:

I was skeptical of the blue cheese in tomato sauce but my Pasta with Tomato-Blue Cheese Sauce ended up being delicious:

Heather enjoyed how the flavors blended together in her Zucchini, Squash, and Tomato Gratin:

Dawn's Summer Vegetable Pie was the essence of summer in a pie:

Elisha isn't normally a fan of quinoa but she ended up really liking her Quinoa with Roasted Garlic, Tomatoes, and Spinach:

Christine loves spinach and artichoke dip but felt her Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Portabellas was missing a little something, though nothing a little tweaking can't fix:

Nichole loved her Sauceless Garden Lasagna despite the fact that her husband won't eat zucchini or tomatoes:

Lindsay was excited when she saw Black Bean Patties with Corn Relish and Avocado Cream in her Inbox. They turned out to be delicious:

Kate was worried that making Homemade Manicotti would be too difficult but it was surprisingly easy and tasty:

Stefanie really enjoyed her Chili Lime Tofu despite being nervous about cooking tofu:

Ali made Jaida's Black Bean and Avocado Quesadillas. She doesn't have a blog so here is her review: I enjoyed this quesadilla. I cooked it on my panini press rather than in the pan. I find that it just cooks faster and crispier. Overall a great recipe that I'll make again but I will add something else for texture. I didn't add anything this time as I didn't want to change the recipe but perhaps some grilled chicken or crisp peppers. It needed some texture on the inside as the combination of avocado, black beans and cheese is pretty uniform. Delicious none the less and a fun first swap!

Mary Ellen was happy to find a healthier recipe for Lightened-up Eggplant Parm

Jenni also made Eggplant Parmesan, although this version isn't breaded:

Jenna used her Black Bean and Corn Dip to make tacos with sweet potatoes:

Jaida's Warm Chickpea Salad was a great light lunch:

Jey loves burgers and her Black Bean and Corn Burgers were a hit:

Nicole had to turn her enchiladas into a Veggie Enchilada Bake, but the flavors were still great:

Kristina wasn't able to use round pasta for her aptly named dish, Round Pasta, but she still enjoyed it:

Ashley enjoyed her Black Bean Salsa as a light summery salsa:

Pin It!
