My family and I really enjoy Southwest foods. Chile relleno are one of our favorites, however; time does not always allow for the time involved in preparing chile rellenos. This recipe is easy and quite good.
Yes, they're meatless and lowfat, but they taste good, too. Don't substitute any other type of vinegar for the balsamic...this much regular vinegar on vegetables will just give you pickles, whereas the balsamic makes them taste a little sweet.
My mom started making this for us when we lived in Southern California. It remains one of my favorites. It's important to use the specified peanut oil in the sauce. The taste adds something special to it. If you do not have access to Anaheim chiles, please see http://www.foodsubs.com/Chilefre.html
for possible substitions. The only one I haved tried are whole canned green chiles. If you used those, you would not have to parboil them.
Egg and cheese infiltrate the spinach in this creamy dish, it's a wonderful dish to serve at a holiday or brunch buffet, or it makes a nice weeknight dinner, you can substiture frozen chopped spinach in place of the fresh if desired. The cayenne is optional, add in for some heat. For a lower fat recipe use low-fat milk and mozzarella cheese and reduce the butter amount.
If you are a spinach lover, then you will have to try this recipe! I have made this many times to serve at a brunch get together (I always make two of these to serve at a brunch!) Plan ahead this dish needs to chill for a minimum of 8 hours or up to 24 hours or until the custard is absorbed in the bread. You can really use any cheese that you wish I find that either asiago or Gruyere are the best! If you don't want a strong spinach taste then use only one box of frozen spinach. To save time make the spinach/mushroom filling up to 1 day in advance and refrigerate, just warm slightly in the microwave before layering in the strata. You will LOVE this!
This spicy Asian inspired dish is absolutely delicious. I saw this made on one of Ina Garten's cooking shows and immediately HAD to try it. I omitted the oil called for in the original recipe and replaced it with water instead. I also gave alternate ingredients to replace the honey as a sweetener in order to make this vegan friendly. Hope you like it!
I found this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine and being an asparagus lover myself, decided to share it with my friends ; ) This makes 6 main dish servings. Would make a nice brunch, or light supper served with a salad.
This is a tasty and colorful meatless meal. It has several ingredients, but is easy to put together on the stovetop. It's quite low in fat if you use the reduced-fat forms of the dairy products. This is adapted from Cook It Light by Jeanne Jones.
