There are over 250 recipes, all with detailed Nutrition Analysis.

But if this is what you are looking for - here's the recipe:

Oriental Courgette (Zucchini) and Brown Rice Salad

Total time: 30 minutes
  
    I use 'Uncle Ben's' which is all I can get and it is quick cooking.  It looks like brown Basmati and cooks in 15 minutes.  You could substitute Basmati, if you prefer.  The cooked rice is combined with the sautéed zucchini and a light, oriental vinaigrette just before serving.

General Technical Details and Disclaimer:

Measurements in this color are actual measurements used for calculation.  If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.

The fine print:

The recipes do NOT use processed foods, with the exception of The recipes DO use lots and lots of fresh, seasonal, and (we hope) local produce

Most recipes are designed for 2 servings, but are easily increased to 4... or 6.... or 8...
     Naturally, whether or not the serving size suits you depends on appetite, activity level, and all sorts of stuff we know nothing about.
