Laura Lee Balanced (LLBalanced) "Healthy Turkeyburger Helper"

Rating: A

I've been wanted to make this for a while, and I finally bit the bullet. There was grassfed ground beef on sale, so I decided to just make it with that, making it more of a "hamburger helper" situation. The pictures aren't pretty, but I have to say it was pretty easy, and I really like the flavor. I used Banza chickpea pasta, and I added a tiny bit a goat cheese and spinach. I also used yellow bell peppers instead of green. It turned out great, even though it looks like...well, it doesn't look appealing. I'll just leave it at that. :)

LLBalanced Tofu Eggplant Bake

Rating: A/A-

Okay, so I really liked this recipe. I pretty much love everything Laura Lea makes. I don't love the eggplant aspect, but I still think it tastes great. My husband pretty much hated it, though, mostly because he generally doesn't like tofu, he hates eggplant, and he got sick from it. I won't go into details, but needless to say, I will never make this for him again. I've made it two more times, though, with just the tofu and I really like it. The asian flavors really add a lot to the tofu.

Here is the recipe

Here is my attempt on this one:
