Lima (butter) beans have a hint of buttery taste that makes them easy to eat, like this tasty Spicy Lima Bean Snack by Solla Eiriksdottir. The size of lima beans is perfect for a snack recipe. The bigger the beans are, the better they keep their shape, making them more suitable as a snack. If they’re too small, they tend to get too hard or end up all crumbled. Experiment with the flavor to make your favorite blend. Almost all kinds of cooked beans can be used for this recipe; adjust the baking time according to the bean’s size.

When I was transitioning to a plant-based diet, dairy substitutes came easy to me, but I could not figure out how to recreate my favorite egg-based dishes. Then some genius figured out that chickpea flour—a staple in many South Asian kitchens—would work. Chickpea flour offers filling protein and plenty of minerals to make it a truly nutritious substitute. This Chickpea Omelette by Desiree Nielsen is one of my favorite breakfasts and it also transitions into a terrific dinner. Once you master it, you can stuff this omelet with any of your favorite fillings—from spinach and tofu feta cheese to roasted red peppers and onions.

This Tofu Sofrito Bowl by Desiree Nielsen makes the most of those spices sitting in your pantry. Tofu is also a great way to get more protein, which is critical for supporting the immune system and rebuilding gut cells when following a low-FODMAP diet. The sofrito is great on its own but I have added even more flavor and texture with an easy marinated cabbage and diced kohlrabi. These bowls have everything you need to fight inflammation and boost gut health—plenty of veggies, plenty of fiber, and anti-inflammatory nutrients to support healing. This will keep well in the fridge for up to five days, so it is perfect for meal prep.
