Natural thicker for soups and casseroles

For recipes that call for flour to thicken soups and or casseroles I add about 1/4 cup of cooked sweet potatoes. For example, I decrease the eggs and flour in a salmon casserole and replace the flour in brocolli soup with chopped/cooked sweet potatoes.

Adding sweetness to lentil dishes

To counter the bitterness of lentil soup I add a small amount of dried cranberries the last 5 minutes of cooking. It really enhances the taste of the lentils.

Increase your fruit servings

Chop one one apple(peel on) and a pear and cook them about 5 minutes. Freeze in cupcake liners. Defrost for 1 minute in the microwave and add to your oatmeal for breakfast as an easy way to increase your fruit and fiber helpings.
