I got this recipe from my dear friend Leslie, cohost of the Canadian Forum. (Por cortesia means "courtesy of") She was very thoughtful and sent to me a package of Canadian magazines for my birthday. I made this dish as a side to chicken fajitas and Mexican rice. Then- the next day I had these beans as leftovers wrapped in a steamed flour tortilla with leftover Mexican rice and they were sublime! Better than the chicken fajitas, themselves. Vegetarians should try these. The beans wrapped in tortillas along with Mexican rice form a "complete protein." Vegetarians know what I mean by this. Excelente!
This is best when made several days before eaten. Put on top of salad greens, or on mixed with hot rice. You may use canned chick peas for this. I got this from an old notebook which I had written recipes in a long time ago. I suspect it comes from Moosewood cookbook. Prep time does not include cooking of chickpeas.
From fatfree.com, posted by Leanne M. Reidy. I love baked lentil and rice dishes as they are so easy to make and taste great. The wine in this dish gives it a very nice flavor, and I think that a white cheese that goes well with white wine tastes great with it (I used Monterey jack but want to experiment with other more gourmet cheeses). And of course, this recipe is no longer fat free when you cover it with cheese! This was fully cooked at 1 and 1/2 hours in my oven.
I got this recipe yrs ago from a friend who served this dish at a dinner party & it got rave reviews. When you want to impress or convince a lima bean non-believer, this is the recipe for you. There are only a few lima bean recipes at this site compared to other veggies. This 1 is an easy to prepare stovetop-to-table dish & spectacular with any meat or chicken entree not combined with a cream sauce. Enjoy!
Visually appealing and perfect with grilled foods, southwestern fare or other casual menus. Great in the summer with fresh corn....but for the winter, canned or frozen is great. Good with grilled chicken or fish. Make the night before for quick prep!
I love lentils for their versatility. Found this recipe in an old Cooking Light magazine and was taken by this unconventional treatment. Though I have not tried this one, I'm making it public now for all my Zaar buddies. Will update after trying it out.
I tasted this delicious salad last year at a summer potluck
and convinced the chef to part with the recipe.
Sometimes I'll boil one cup gemelli pasta (corkscrew) and toss it in with the other ingredients to "stretch" the salad for potlucks, picnics, etc. Marinating is necessary to allow the flavors to mingle.
