The taste and texture of this dish is subtle and unusual but my BF and I think it's absolutely delicious. My apologies if you haven't found this as appealing as we do. The recipe comes from a fantastic cookbook of the midwestern region (of the U.S.) called "Hollyhocks and Radishes." The original ingredients call for 2 cups cream instead of milk and twice the butter, so if you don't mind the extra fat, go ahead. I also like to add more horseradish, at least 1 tablespoon. In my area hominy can be found in the mexican foods section of the supermarket.
FIXED AFTER 3-STAR REVIEW. This recipe falls under the category: Crowd Pleaser. Two VERY crucial ingredients distinguish it from the rest of the pack - molasses and sour cream (or yogurt) - so you won't want to forget to add them. It's adapted from an award-winning Midwestern (U.S.) cookbook "Hollyhocks and Radishes" and is great for picnics, barbecues and potlucks (just double the recipe). You can use fava (broad) beans as well as butter (lima) beans (I prefer fava myself). This can also be made a day or two ahead and reheated.
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Identifying a Canadian recipe, for an American, was difficult. Good thing I found at least one good one, on the internet. St. Ives makes a wonderful vegetarian substitute for Canadian Bacon. Lower in fat than the original (which I understand is still pretty low in fat). This is a diabetic recipe, from Taste of Home's Light and Tasty. Exchanges: 1 starch, 1 lean meat, 1 vegetable. I have not tried this yet, but I will. Butter granules are new to me; I might as well experiment.
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.)
Another wonderful recipe from my favorite award-winning cookbook and a great way to create a colorful and tasty concoction while using up some of your fresh garden vegetables. Nice vegetarian main meal for two or side dish for four. Be sure to use a shallow casserole so vegetables are tender in allotted time. Note that this may be prepared a couple of hours ahead, up to last cooking interval, if left at room temperature. (This recipe comes from a cookbook of the UP area of Michigan, which could be construed as Canada, so I'm submitting this for Zaar World Tour Canadian recipes.)
