A very easy and delicious recipe from a popular spa retreat, Rancho la Puerta. It's low in calorie and fat, but packed with flavour. It's a great alternative lunch if you've been trying to squeeze in that new bikini from last summer.
Yummy side dish to serve with any type meat, especially pork. This dish is very popular along the Canadian border as well as with Norwegian immigrants to America and Canada. Try this with a shot of Amaretto added in... mmm...
I learned how to make these when I was a little girl. After looking at other more complex recipes, involving eggs and cream, I thought there might be space for mine. All you need is self- rising flour, butter and milk, and Hey Presto! You have afternoon tea or a snack.
This recipe is fast and flexible to your individual taste buds. Pressing a block of extra firm tofu can really improve the texture of the tofu in recipes like this. If you are vegan, try this with vegan mayonnaise – it will be just as good.
This recipe is great because it's so versatile. As long as you have 1-2 cups of assorted veggies (bell peppers, tomatoes, avocado, leeks, mushrooms, carrots, celery, broccoli, etc.) you are good to go. I just put my favorites in here but feel free to experiment! The recipe came from Vegan on a Shoestring. It's a great way to use up any veggies that are in the bottom of your fridge before they go bad!
Recipe from Carl Lewis' Very Vegetarian. I make these muffins every couple of weeks and modify slightly each time. They make a very yummy and nutritious breakfast. My boyfriend doesn't like raisins and loves chocolate so I always drop the raisins add 1/2 cup or so of mini chocolate chips. I also frequently add 2-4 mashed bananas as well as some wheat bran. I also reduce the oil or eliminate it altogether.
I arrived at this by trial & error, picking my favorite parts from many existing granola recipes and adding stuff on my own.
This will fill your belly & clear out your arteries.(chant with me: fiber..fiber...fiber...)
Feel free to use different nuts and/or dried fruit. But the crytallized ginger really makes it special. ;)
This recipe makes a LOT - good for a crowd but it also keeps for a long time in an airtight container (or 2). This is wicked tasty. (said in my best Maine accent, lol) Enjoy!
Absolutely delicious, moist & sweet. Packed with fiber and vitamins. Great for diabetics or those watching their fat and sugar intake.
If you have trouble finding unsweetened dried mango, unsweetened coconut, ground flax seed, etc., check out natural foods stores such as Trader Joe's, co-ops, and ethnic grocers.
So easy to slap together and soooo addictive. I made this up and ate the WHOLE thing!. It does taste like tropical fruit punch! And so healthy too! Have it as a garnish, breakfast, dessert, with fish (salmon), whatever your heart desires
Very quick, easy way to start your day, especially with the nutrients in this recipe. The blueberries and walnuts are real brain food, so give this a shot next time you don't have time to eat breakfast.( I know I've said it before, I hate measuring. You can ignore these measures and just eye out your own yummy creation, change the fruit, change the nuts, whatever goes!)
