    I find it totally amazing, that children and men ALL LOVE THIS RECIPE! As for the Female of our species we just love this for the flavor and the health benefits it brings our families. Roasted brings out a wonderful sweetness in this dish. The Garlic is roasted to a tan color is creamy good. You can just pop them in your mouth. Or you can spread them on your florets or fresh bread. Just be sure to scoop up some of the rosemary, olive oil and black pepper that may have escaped to the bottom of the dish. For Halloween check out Recipe #396674 version of my recipe.

    Fast fix up makes broccoli not the same old same old! My teens love this and will only eat broccoli like this or smothered in cheese- this is healthier! I created this recipe after the broccoli served at my fave Chinese place. The variety of ingredients apply to many regional cuisines such as Italian, Asian and SW.

    Recipe #137364

    Another delectable entry for the Zaar World Tour from the enticing World Vegetarian Cookbook by Madhur Jaffrey. This is simple enough to prepare midweek and comforting as the first cold air of fall arrives.

    Recipe #140836

    Tender marinated chicken and a creamy cucumber yogurt sauce tucked into a pita, topped with lettuce and tomato if you like. Sounds like a great lunch to me! Cooked in or outside! Note: time to make does NOT include 1 hour marinating time. from TOH... ZWT Greek and US Regional - East Coast

    Using canned beans makes this dish not just quick and easy but delish! And you have everything in your cabinet so make it now!

    Recipe #61726

    Romantic little recipe for two that wont leave you too full to flirt! Yummy garlic and wine sauce coat the shrimp and pasta. A salad and some crusty fresh bread would be very nice with this and a nice chablis or chardonnay wouldn't hurt either! I came up with this after totally revamping a recipe found on healthycookingrecipes.com. "PLEASE adjust the seasonings to make it perfect for you and DO let me know how you change it up." Enjoy! UPDATE! As listed yes the portion is quite large as you would find in a restaurant. Feel free to reduce the amount of pasta to save calories. We always have leftovers which is fine by me! I remove the shrimp to reheat. Zap pasta in micro for a few minutes then add the shrimp on top for about 20 seconds to remove the chill! Also feel free to experiment! More tomatoes, canned tomatoes (just use organic or add a pinch of sugar) less red pepper, more red pepper. You get the idea. Enjoy!

    Recipe #144728

    My kids named 'em this 'cuz they is so good! LOL Great with soups, stews, jams, jellies or just by themselves. Who ever said homemade was hard just didn't know Mama! Extra note: Edited 3/07 to answer questions and help you make these come out perfectly. You can even add garlic powder and cheese to make those 'famous restaurant type' biscuits, BUT BETTER. Edited 8/08 to add yes these are basic biscuits. To add additional flavor try adding in herbs and seasonings as stated in the previous edit above. Onion powder, garlic powder, fresh cracked black pepper, herbs like oregano or rosemary. You could even brush the top with melted butter when done baking or add some Butter Buds or Molly McButter if you like. This also doubles very easily. and again 11-08 This dough is very wet and sticky. Make sure your hands are well floured and gently press into shape to knead- do not knead vigorously, you will have a mess. Gently pat and use a kneading motion to gently fold the dough into itself and form into a square shape.

    Recipe #134775

    Thaw and marinade your chicken breasts at the same time in this wonderful concoction! Toss it all in a zipper seal bag and throw in the refrigerator. Ready the next day to throw on the grill! The seasonings are a fusion of Asian and SW flavors making it suitable for both catagories in the World Tour.

    Recipe #135664

    A tasty potato dish for those occasions when you just don’t have much time and you are looking for a shortcut. The potatoes are not peeled, there is no onion or garlic to peel and chop, mince or crush and all the herbs are dried. Preparation involves little more than pre-heating the oven, getting your dried herbs out of the cupboard and cutting the potatoes into thin slices. Vary the herbs according to your preferences. This dish is best made just before serving. I was inspired to develop this recipe, the particular combination of herbs, from memories of a similar dish I ate many years ago in a restaurant in Hampstead Heath, in England, so it is, I suppose an English-Australian recipe. It was served with Onion, Apple and Sage Pie. In view of Bekah49036's comment in her review that her potatoes were too salty, do add salt to taste. People's tastes differ SO much! I've adjusted the two salts in the ingredients to now read "to taste". Thanks Bekah49036! :)

    Forget the coffee. This is a great way to start the day! Cleanse from the inside out. Cleanse the body of impurity by rinsing the system and stimulating digestion. Drinking this first thing in the morning will also help to "tone" your body because lemon stimulates cleansing of both the gallbladder and liver. Relieves symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, bloating and belching. Controls constipation and diarrhea by eliminating waste efficiently. Cleanses the Liver.

    Recipe #59070

    Another Sainsbury’s recipe from Jamie Oliver’s website. Low calorie and low fat, simple to make, nutritious and delicious. I’m still not sure why Jamie Oliver has Sainsbury’s recipes on his website, but that’s where I found it.

    Root vegetables (with the exception of potatoes and carrots) are some of the most overlooked and under appreciated food stuffs around. But these nutritional storehouses are hidden treasures worthy of your notice. Not only are they available in winter when other vegetables are hard to find, they are also very inexpensive. Experiment with turnips, rutabagas, beets and parsnips, and learn what they have to offer in taste and versatility. Rutabaga (also known as swede) is an accidental vegetable -- the result of a chance hybridization of turnips and cabbage. Like carrots, they're low in sodium and high in vitamin C. The flavor of all root vegetables will be enhanced by selecting fresh, firm produce (preferably organically grown) and storing it carefully. Turnips and potatoes should be stored in a cool, dark place out of the refrigerator. The rest of these roots will keep well in the refrigerator for at least a week. From Dr. Weil

    This is a copycat recipe for the cajun chicken bites served in the food court in some malls. My family loves it. The prep time does not include the marinade time.

    Lots of flavor. These are very addictive. Once you had one you'll eat them all. You can eat these hot or cold. And you can try any veggies you like.

    Recipe #90746

    Yesterday was my turn to bring snacks to my Cuban salsa class -- the dance that is. After scanning dozens of recipes, I couldn't find what I wanted so I created this one. After watching my classmates tip the bowl, I decided it was worth posting. While the ingredients are familiar, the ratio of tomatoes, beans and corn is quite different from the dozens already here. So easy, its a crowd pleaser.

    Recipe #114956

    This salad goes good with any main dish and is especially nice with BBQ. Easy to carry to picnics or potlucks too! Just 4 ingredients make it fast and easy! Fits into many catagories for the Zaar World Tour especially SW.Taken from a Louisiana Cajun French Church Anniversary Cookbook.

    Recipe #132764

    From Light and Tasty Jan 2003. Very simple, refreshing and nourishing. Try it for breakfast, as a dessert or a side dish to accompany a nice sandwich. It would go great with lots of things. Posted for World Tour 2005 - Australia & New Zealand as the fruits here are indigenous to those regions.
