They also have 3x as much potassium as a banana. So enjoy with out guilt this healthy recipe from "The Mayo Clinic Williams Sonoma Cookbook."
From Foodland Ontario booklet. A savory flatbread loaded with asparagus, ham, onion and Parmesan cheese and easy to make using biscuit mix. Great for a casual brunch. Serve with a lightly dressed green salad or sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. I used cheddar cheese,adjusted the seasonings to taste, and recipe #69051 #69051 for the biscuit mix.
This is a wonderful light apetizer. I served it at a luncheon and all asked for the recipe. My son-in-law did the "taste test" for me and wanted any left-overs. (Re the capers listed below: it does take 1 tbsp PLUS 1 tsp, drained and chopped) Recipe from Food Network.
This recipe caught my attention as it was quite different than what I am accustomed to. This is a great way to use some fresh garden vegetables and to add variety to your diet. The recipe is from Planking Secrets by Ron Shewchuk.
This recipe creates an impressive vegetarian main dish for brunch, lunch or dinner or a fancy side dish to perk up your meal. I love the combination of flavours and a serving of cottage cheese on the side compliments this nicely. This will make 2 servings as a vegetarian dish or 3-4 servings as a side dish.
Adapted from Heidi Swanson, cookbook author. I haven't tried this yet, but it looks awfully good. Serve atop pasta, on baguettes, or over pizza or potatoes. Makes enough for 8 ounces dried pasta or 12 ounces fresh.
