Recipe adapted from fatfreevegan.com and placed here for safe keeping, as we are going vegan for a month in June:) This recipe got great reviews on her website; hers is a single serving salad with 7 cups of greens for a specific diet, however I have adapted it to make is more mainstream for those of us not on such a diet. It can be made spicy if you'd like (although I will choose not to).
WOW was I surprised at the fresh flavor in this crunchy salad. Both hubby and I really enjoyed it a lot - the dressing is the secret! If you don't have baby turnips, feel free to add carrots, broccoli, cauliflower or another crunchy veggie. Adapted from a recipe from The Fruit Guys.
I was searching for a black bean burger with Southwestern flair and couldn't find the perfect recipe. . .so I devised my own this morning. I use black beans that I cook from dried in the crockpot which I spice up with cumin, a bay leaf, oregano, salt and pepper. If you like things spicy, feel free to use a hot salsa to add heat. If these break, feel free to throw them into a hard taco shell and add some tomato, cheese and sour cream for an excellent vegetarian taco!
This was super easy and super good. Found it in the June 2010 issue of Food Network Magazine. We marinated some strip steaks in beer for about 3 hours and then used this as a dipping sauce on the side and it was perfect!
Simple and FABULOUS. Recipe found in Food Network Magazine Nov 2010. This could easily be made vegan by using vegan margarine which is what I did. The first time I made it I made it as is and loved it. Second time I added chinks of butternut squash and used walnuts in place of pine nuts and then topped it with manchego shavings.....delish! We eat this as a main course.
This is a no-cook, fast and delicious salad that can be made ahead. What a wonderful lunch this makes!! Modified from a recipe that I found in Prevention magazine. Next time I am going to throw in some chopped dried apricots too!
WOW was this good. I just adore St. Germain - and a little goes a long way. It takes the edge off the gin (I used Hendrick because it's a bit more floral in flavor). I garnish with an orange to continue with the flowery fruity aura of this recipe. This is a great drink for poolside. I thought I made this recipe up a couple nights ago, but I just found it on the St. Germain website (although they recommend a garnish of lime or lemon).
A twist on a few other recipes. . .using ingredients I had on hand. . .and it turned out great! Feel free to have fun and add green onion and kalamata olives if you like - and feta can be subbed for the mozzarella.
I was on the search for a crock pot method for acorn squash and wasn't happy with what I found. . .so I took a little from each recipe and created my own. The results were outstanding. If you have any leftovers, simply scoop out the pulp, apples, craisins and mix with juices in crock pot, mash slightly and freeze for a side dish at a later date! This recipe is quite forgiving, so don't worry about measuring everything out exactly. In our house, we eat this as a main course with a small salad on the side.
Per www.education.com, "Your child will love nothing more than combining his two favorite parts of the day: snack time and playtime! This crazy monster mouth is almost as fun to create as it is to enjoy. So, go ahead: Give your child permission to play with his food! Your young chef will improve his fine motor skills as he creates zany edible art."
Serve this super easy and tasty dip with veggies (or raw veggie kabobs) as a snack for kids. Recipe found on http://www.healthy-kids-snacks.com/. For the ranch dressing, I use my light version posted here on food.com Recipe #432325
