recipe with a catch

So what is your favourite recipe that you would highly recommend? The catch is that is must be on the PCRM or one of the associated websites (NutritionMd.org; The Cancer Project, Food for Life, 21-day kickstart).
Mine is currently the Black Bean Burger. This recipe was also mailed out in June as a recipe of the week. For variety I have made it replacing the black beans with lentils and its equally as good although the flavour is a little milder.
I use these burger patties on sandwiches, as burger patties in a bun, to stuff wholegrain pita bread, and as a 'meat replacement' on the side of a plate with vegetables and mashed potatoes. Having some of these in the freezer to take out when I want has become a staple.
I have modified the recipe in one way - after making the patties it says to fry them in a little oil. I make the patties and place them on an oven tray and bake for 30 minutes. Turning at 15 minutes so each side browns a little. No change to taste and no need for oil.
