Couscous with Butternut

Couscous with Pomegranates & Butternut – 7 Smart Points

Here is a seriously delicious combination of pomegranate, butternut and orange. It’s a simple and easy meal that can be tossed together in no time. I love the fact that I can make it up really quickly. Squash can be sliced in half, and baked for about 10 minutes. It’s easier to peel and cube then. It’s also easy to freeze it then and I can have it all year. Roasted in the oven with some olive oil, salt and pepper until it’s tender. It’s a great way to make squash without loading it up with butter and brown sugar.…

Autumn Hummus

Autumn Hummus – 3 Points

As it’s cooler now, the garden produce is pretty much done, although we’ve had a pretty warm fall. Thankfully, one of the things (or rather, two of the things) that are still keeping great since we brought them in are the pumpkins and squash. And with this hummus recipe, it’s perfect.

It’s a great snack and it holds well in the fridge for several days. Since it has chickpeas…

This fabulous butternut squash risotto fixes that. The butternut squash adds flavor, fiber and color to the risotto. Since you bake the rice, it’s easy to fix the rest of the meal while the risotto is cooking. Be careful…

winter minestrone

Winter Minestrone Recipe – 4 Points

The ultimate in comfort food, this healthy minestrone soup recipe is a great way to fill up and feel incredibly satisfied without using many Weight Watchers Points. It’s thick and hearty…almost more like a stew, and is loaded with vegetables and fiber. The tomato based broth is seasoned just perfectly, and the spinach adds a nice touch.
