This is from Cooking Light, January 2004. They suggest it as a vegetarian main dish, or you can add meat/seafood to your taste. Posting for safekeeping. I will likely make this with whole wheat couscous or even quinoa.
Found the original of this recipe in the December 2008 Betty Crocker Most Requested RECIPES: Holiday Recipe Collection, although it has been slightly tweaked by someone who really likes cranberries! NOTE: If you aren't a fan of the cranberry, pomegranates make a nice substitute
I just love this and hope you do too! A quick and easy meal you can make in minutes! Warning, these can be addictive! You can make this using plain tortillas, or try whole wheat, or the red sundried tomato or green spinach wraps. You can vary the ingredients to your liking and there are optional ingredients to give even more taste and texture! Made for RSC#16.
This is a no-cook, fast and delicious salad that can be made ahead. What a wonderful lunch this makes!! Modified from a recipe that I found in Prevention magazine. Next time I am going to throw in some chopped dried apricots too!
Found in Healthy Cooking Magazine and was amazed at how easy this was to throw together. ** Rotisserie chicken or leftover grilled chicken would be a great cooked chicken to use for this recipe. Time does not include cooking the chicken as it is to be cooked prior to assembling these wraps. ** A great sub idea that I'm going to try is the prepacked shredded cabbage, carrots and broccoli mix.
This salad has a delightful depth of flavor with roasted cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs and whole grains. This is a filling salad that could be a vegetarian meal, or could be served alongside a grilled skewer of shrimp or chicken for a light summertime meal.
Derived from the Spanish spelling of the Quechua name, kinwa or occasionally "Qin-wah", Quinoa originated in the Andean region of South America, where it was successfully domesticated 3000 to 4000 years ago for human consumption. Raw diet here I come!!!! Found on http://rawgirl2.blogspot.com.
Our little community in Maine occasionally does ethnic-themed potluck dinners. Found this on an ethnic foods website and made it for Greek Night (figuring everyone else would do the usual spanakopita, mousaka, etc.) The fresh rosemary really makes this dish -- you might even want to up the amount a bit!
'Tis the Season...lots of squash around. I picked up this recipe from the produce section and made it for a party. It's quite easy to throw together the night before as the flavour improves over night. You could add quite a few other things to this based on what you have on hand, see some optional suggestions. Enjoy!
I was craving a non-mayo-based pasta salad with tons of veggies, so I kinda made this one up by combining a few other recipes I found. I've been on a big Israeli couscous kick lately, but this could probably be made with bowties or pretty much any pasta. Also, it would be great with any combination of veggies! Cook time doesn't include time to cook couscous.
An adaptation of Heidi Swanson's Big Sur Power Bars from her cookbook, 101 Cookbooks, this is easily changed around to suit your tastes! I love Big Sur so had to post this! These bars are soft set, prone to falling apart and are fairly sticky and gooey too. All adds to their deliciousness. :)
