This is adapted from a photo copy from a book or magazine. It says "The Best Light Recipe" at the top. My notes were to increase the lemon and decrease the basil. So I offered that below. Please use fresh lemon and herbs. Using the oven method gives you a fluffy and chewy brown rice instead of wet and soupy or burnt and crunchy.
I had a similar salad from a deli and tried to duplicate it. This is what I ended up with. I think it's fabulous! The deli salad was my first experience trying hearts of palm...now they're a new favorite!
This is a new favorite of mine. I was blown away by the wonderful flavors. I'm not a vegetarian but didn't miss meat with this. The onions turn out still crunchy, which I liked but if you don't you might try sautéing them in a little oil first.
This is a recipe given to my Mother by friends in the 70's? I was forbidden to share it but I like sharing and think everyone should have a chance to try it! It's ooey gooey cheesy yummy! It uses "mild" green chilies not hot ones. Everyone that tries it requests the recipe. It is very bad for you but worth having at least once a year for a potluck. I've had friends try to make it with lowfat or nonfat ingredients and it doesn't work. I also have tried mixing all the ingredients together and it doesn't taste as good, the layers matter (even though they melt together)! I usually double or triple it and bake it in a removable crock from my crockpot then put it on low in the crockpot for potlucks. If you do this the layers are still the same but double or triple the amount in each layer. I usually assemble it the night before and put it in the oven right before the event. For extra gooeyness add extra jack cheese in the layers to completely coat them. Remember for a single recipe: you are using 3 cups of "cooked" white rice which is made from 1 cup of dry rice. One cup of cooked rice per layer (3 layers). Enjoy! Very yummy with my Recipe#233148.
From: "The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen" by Donna Klein. "Perfect for a party, these crunchy triangles are excellent vehicles for a variety of dips and spreads." "They're also a healthy snack on their own."
I don't remember what cookbook this is from. I think it was a compilation of restaurant recipes. These are excellent! They disappear everytime I make them. They are spicy so if you don't like heat, you can try making them without the red pepper flakes.
I had some mushrooms to use up and couldn't find any recipes that I wanted to make or that I had all of the ingredients for. So I decided to play with some of my favorite flavors together to make a vegetarian no bread-crumb stuffed mushroom. I had so much fun with this one that I also made green chile stuffed mushrooms and am going to post that recipe next! I had to write down a few more ideas for the next time I have mushrooms on hand. Playing with food is fun!
This is adapted from Claudia Roden's "The New Book of Middle Eastern Food". I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor combos. It tastes like a very fresh carrot cake without all the work...and it's healthy!
I found this on another website researching Swedish recipes. I love to make it and not tell people it has anchovies in it until after they rave about how good it is. The anchovies melt into it to make a sauce. It has such a yummy flavor! Here is a quote from the recipe: "Jansson's Temptation is a classic Swedish dish traditionally served before guests leave to ensure that during their cold journey home they have something warm inside them."
