Roasted Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart 

This recipe takes advantage of the convenience of frozen puff pastry. Goat cheese has less cholesterol and fat than many other popular cheeses.

Ginger Tofu Stir-fry

Tofu takes some getting used to for some people, but it is packed with protein and low in fat. Some vegetarians weight down blocks of tofu overnight in a strainer over a bowl to get rid of some of the excess moisture and end up with a "meatier" product. This recipe calls for freezing tofu before using for a similar result. Experiment and you will likely find some ways to prepare this healthy meat-free ingredient.
