Call me crazy but after a marathon of cooking which traveled the globe, I did it again when the call came six months later. Don't let NCMS or ~Leslie~ bat their eyes at you, it's lethal. With close to 250 recipes made in the two contests, I've decided create a cookbooks with the best of each. (I also have cookbooks of everything tried in both.)
This is another recipe that my sister and I came up with for our home study group. The tartness of the dressing and the sweetness of the fruit make a wonderful combination. We found, for us anyway, that by adding a little Miracle Whip to the dressing we could cut down on the amount of sugar.
Easy, classically Mediterranean, this zucchini emerges from the broiler with a still somewhat firm texture, coated with a lemony glaze and flavored with sweet herbs. This is also good grilled over the coals in good weather. Try cutting this on the diagonal to make elongated oval slices, good for both broiling and grilling techniques. This recipe is from Moosewood Low Fat Favorites!
Proof that low fat and low cholesterol can be delicious! Lamb is horribly expensive in Australia at the moment, so I just use whatever cut is cheapest at the supermarket that week! Easy to make and looks great; taken from the best Aussie food magazine, Super Food Ideas.
Another take on this favorite Hanukkah tradition. This recipe is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't had a chance to try these yet, but know I will enjoy them.
The source is The Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook - Traditional Recipes from Contemporary Kosher Kitchens. This particular recipe was contributed by Abe Koblin, Dayan Group, Baltimore Hadassah.
This falls under the category: Amazing What a Great Recipe Can Be Produced from Such Humble Ingredients. It's quick and so easy to make too. This is another recipe from my favorite (award-winning) midwestern cookbook "Hollyhocks and Radishes." If you'd prefer, substitute sour cream for the yogurt, but IMHO it tastes just as good, and it's much lower in fat! (Note that this comes from a cookbook from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, which is technically in Canada, so I'm submitting this for Zaar World Tour Canadian recipes.)
Try feeding your family some foul mud tonight! The name may be off-putting, but the taste is not. Foul Mudammas is a middle eastern recipe based on a dish available at Alfanoose, a gem of a restaurant in the financial district in Manhattan, where you'll find all the suits from Wall Street lined up for their weekday fix. This dish may or may not be authentic, but the guy who runs this place (and his wife who developed this recipe) are definitely Arabic. Serve as side dish or for lunch in a pita bread. I recommend using the roasted garlic - instructions for how to roast garlic can be found elsewhere on Recipezaar. Using raw garlic will give it more of a bite but won't make it as aromatic. Letting this soak overnight improves the flavor but that's optional.
This is a delicous salad that is great for lunch or dinner. I serve it with cheesy garlic bread and a glass of wine for a delicious meal.
You can use the dressing listed, or your favourite, but I recommend a tangy dressing to offset the sweetness of the pineapple.
Hope you enjoy!
This recipe was submitted to TOH Healthy Cooking and was a runner up in the From the Herb Garden June/July 2010 issue. The recipe is being updated to reflect the use of fresh herbs as that is how it was entered in the contest. It is a wonderful way to serve fresh green beans.
This festive salad has a sweet, smokey, spicy flavor from the grilled veggies and Chipotle pepper in adobe sauce. Serve this on a bed of greens. This I tossed up from left over grilled asparagus and corn.
