Grab a Book & Cook
It’s the end of the year and we’re taking a moment to reflect – The Recipe ReDux has been around for 54 months! To celebrate, we’re playing a little party game this month: Grab your nearest cookbook and ReDux the recipe on page 54 or 154. We can’t wait to see the books you’re cooking from these days.
For this redux challenge, I browsed my bookshelf and pulled out this High Performance Cookbook. I can't remember where I picked this up and I have yet to cook anything from it, so I decided it was a great choice! The vegetarian lasagna stood out to me as a good one-dish meal that could easily be transformed into a nutrient-dense, high protein, high carbohydrate dish. This lasagna is perfect for athletes as it includes iron-rich tofu, spinach and broccoli along with immune-boosting mushrooms. The tofu, cottage cheese and mozzarella work together to boost protein while the tomato sauce is a great source of the antioxidant, lycopene. I also have to say that lasagna is VERY difficult to take good pictures of... so check back tomorrow and maybe I'll have a few better ones for you?
Quick Tip: If you have leftovers, cut the lasagna into slices, freeze, then transfer slices to be individually wrapped in plastic wrap. Place all your slices in a galloon sized plastic container. This way you can easily pull out one slice of lasagna at a time for a quick dinner or lunch when in a time crunch!
