Lima beans (butter beans) have a hint of buttery flavor that makes them easy to eat, like this delicious Spicy Lima Bean Snack from Solla Eiriksdottir. The size of the lima beans is perfect for a snack recipe. The larger the beans, the better they hold their shape, making them a better snack. If they’re too small, they tend to get too hard or end up crumbled all over. Experiment with flavor to create your favorite blend. Almost any type of cooked beans can be used for this recipe; adjust the baking time according to the bean size.

When I went plant-based, I found dairy substitutes easy, but couldn’t figure out how to recreate my favorite egg-based dishes. Then a genius figured out that chickpea flour — a staple in many South Asian cuisines — would work. Chickpea flour provides filling protein and lots of minerals, making it a truly nutritious substitute. This Desiree Nielsen Chickpea Omelet is one of my favorite breakfast dishes and makes a great dinner too. Once you’ve mastered it, you can fill this omelette with any of your favorite fillings – from spinach and tofu and feta cheese to roasted red peppers and onions.

This Desiree Nielsen Tofu Sofrito Bowl makes the most of the condiments that are sitting in your pantry. Tofu is also a great way to get more protein, which is vital for supporting the immune system and rebuilding gut cells on a low-FODMAP diet. The sofrito is great on its own, but I added even more flavor and texture with a simply marinated cabbage and diced turnip greens. These bowls have everything you need to fight inflammation and boost gut health — lots of veggies, lots of fiber, and anti-inflammatory nutrients to aid healing. This keeps well in the fridge for up to five days and is therefore perfect for preparing meals.
