A delicious meat-free take on a shepherd's pie from VegNews. We really enjoy this - nice and filling with plenty of flavor. I have successfully subbed in lentils for the veggie crumbles before - I just prepare 3/4 cup dried lentils according to package directions and proceed from there with the recipe.
Adopted from Martha Rose Shulman.I got this in a recipe exchange and it was advertised as a stew but when I made it the texture made it almost like a very easy, healthy and substantive risotto! This has a surprising creamy taste without much fat. A great, hearty yet flavorful fall meal. Swiss chard will work as a great substitute for the kale, just make sure to only use the leaves, not the stalks.
You won't find red sauce in this dish, just cheesy goodness. If you feel like indulging just a bit give this a try. You can easily double this recipe and make one for today and an extra to pop in the freezer for a heat-and-eat meal someday in the future.
I adore angel hair pasta, and such a fine pasta doesn't always need a big sauce. Serve with some kind of cheese or "cheez" if you wish, sprinkled on top. My children like it with sliced olives. There are many versions of this simple recipe, this one I adapted from www.cookingnook.com. This would probably be good for 4 as a side dish or 4 for lunch with a salad.
I'm from Seattle and everynight when all the bars are closing, party-goers flock to the multitude of hot dog stands lining the streets (affectionally called "street meat"). The most popular option is the tried and true Seattle Dog. It sounds like a wierd combination but it is oh so delicious! Some places also add sauteed cabbage if you want to give that a try.
A different way of preparing ravioli - they aren;t baked or boiled but browned in butter, simmered in broth and cream and finished in a broiler with pesto, goat cheese and tomatoes. From Cook's Country April/May 2010.
Make sure to use homeade or store-bought refrigerated pesto. The shelf-stable pesto won't taste as good.
Hahah my friend gave me this recipe and in lack of any other name, she put this as the email subject line. Works for me :) Just a fair warning: make sure you like goat cheese before making this recipe as it is definitely the predominate taste.
This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. It is somehow light and healthy tasting while still satisfying the part of me that wants something rich and creamy. I use tomatos, broccoli and peas (my favorite veggies) but I'm sure it would be just as successful with other spring-time vegetables!
This is a great one dish, pan-asian meal and makes for a healthy, well-balanced lunch or dinner. The combination of the spicy, rich tofu and the fresh cool greens really makes the dish pop. Adapted from Vegetarian Times.
