I am fortunate to work at a place where the manager of the cafeteria is a Moroccan native. Our mutual love of food has resulted in endless exchange of recipes, spices and samplings. (Indeed, some of the items now served in the cafeteria are recipes from this site.) One one occasion, I was lucky enough to be able to share in the lunch he prepared for the staff. I love eggs and his were just amazing. This recipe from World Vegetarian seems like a close approximate - though I know his version included a generous bit of cumin and cilantro. I'm posting the original here and will begin to tinker. Once perfected, I'll post that version as a second recipe. Will experiment to see if this works as well with canned tomatoes.
I came up with this recipe after attempting to make some sweet potato pancakes from cooking light. After looking at all the ingredients I realized there was a much easier way (they wanted you to make the batter from scratch). I chickend out at the last minute with the sweet potatoes though. The pancakes came out so good. You can't even tell it is low cal/fat. If your brave enough you can add a 16ounce can of sweet potato/yams after it is all sturred together. I'm sure they will be good. I just haven't tried it yet.
This is a recipe that I had an idea for. I made it one morning and it seemed to come out very good. It has a mild flavor, nothing extremely strong. I tried to make it as healthy as I could at the time since the only thing I actually bought to make this recipe was a small pack of chopped pecans.
I got this healthy and very low fat recipe from the Betty Crocker website.
You can play around with the recipe depending on your preferences (or what you have on hand). You can use 1 cup of sweet peas, chopped broccoli or 1-inch asparagus pieces for the zucchini.
I have the worst luck with Hollandaise Sauce. Clumpy because I over cook it and the butter seperates or fear of under cooked egg yokes. I found this recipe and gave it a try. It is delicious! Tastes just like real sauce and so easy to make! Just make sure you do not cook for more than 1 minute total!
Rudy loves these eggs basted hard. They are a cross between poached and fried. You can cook them to your preference; I like basted soft myself, served with toast. You need a fry pan with a lid, glass is best, so you can watch for doneness.
Just starting the south beach diet and I wanted something that traveled well for breakfast. This is a quick and easy recipe. Very yummy too. It comes out in a neat little package that travels well...but make sure you cover the item when reheating in the microwave.
These are fast to do and you don't have to watch them too much. Mom Florence made these for breakfast. She made the simple ones. I came up with the different variations. There are many variations you can do. You can tailor breakfast to the person. They cook in the muffin tin.
These cinnamon apples taste like a cobbler or pie without the crust. I was looking for a recipe for Cinnamon apples and all I could find were recipes for baking the whole apple - not what I wanted. After much searching I finally came across this recipe - I unfortunately cannot remember the site. It can easily be reduced to 2 or 3 apples, just watch it as it cooks. We serve this over ice cream and it is delicious. It can also be used on pancakes, waffles, or all by itself.
Here's a tasty little number that doesn't require any special ingredients. You'll feel like you're out for breakfast while cooking at home. I substituted sausage in place of bacon because it's what I had. Recipe from Taste of Home Quick Cooking July/August 1999, courtesy of Diana Bullock who likes to prepare this for overnight guests. She keeps cooked bacon in the freezer to cut down on preparation time.
