This recipe comes from a book called 'Harumi's Japanese Home Cooking' by Harumi Kurihara. I boiled the carrots and potatoes instead of steamed and it worked well. I removed the carrots first as the potatoes need to be boiled longer. I used Japanese mayonnaise but I think any type of mayonnaise will work.
Very easy and quick to make muffin. Whenever I brought this to a party I was asked for the recipe so I think there are a lot of people who actually like this type of muffin very much.
You can prepare this recipe with all kinds of fillings (vegetables, fish and meat as well). Just try them out and find the one you like best.
This recipe was the result of me sifting through the leftovers I had and wanting some pasta salad. I love black-eyed peas, but whenever I make them we always have leftovers because I get tired of eating them plain. This is a great way to use up those leftovers, and a few other random ingredients you may have lying around. I'll give tips for some substitutions, but definitely make this your own using what you like. I'll post my vegetarian black eyed pea recipe separately.
Recipe comes from Mediterranean Fresh by Joyce Goldstein. Her directions are confusing about the cooking of the carrots. What she exactly writes is "For carrots with a bit more body and texture, you need to cook them briefly, as they are not porous enough to absorb the flavors of a salad dressing. For optimum flavor, dress carrots while they are still warm. You may warm the grated carrots in the dressing or serve as is." I am thinking (big thinker here) maybe 2 minutes? I also think buying those already grated carrots would be mighty handy. Use only 1/4 cup of the dressing, and use the remainder of the dressing for a beet, orange, and greens salad.
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!
'Tis the Season...lots of squash around. I picked up this recipe from the produce section and made it for a party. It's quite easy to throw together the night before as the flavour improves over night. You could add quite a few other things to this based on what you have on hand, see some optional suggestions. Enjoy!
This is one of my favorite things to take to work for lunch. I keep the filling and tortillas separate and put the wrap together at work, so it doesn't get soggy. Nuke it for a few seconds and it is ready.
This recipe, from The Whole Foods Market Cookbook, is an explosion of traditional Southwest flavors and textures. If you want to add a little heat, try mixing a teaspoon of chipotle chili in adobo sauce to the cream cheese before spreading it on the tortilla. Serve these with a bit of tomato salsa and sour cream or plain yogurt on the side for dipping.
Mmmm, do you love avocado as much as I do? This is a nice veggie hors d'oeuvre, or you can add a sprinkling of bacon. I've made it with Havarti cheese as well as Swiss. Number of servings depends on people's appetites.
Found in Healthy Cooking Magazine and was amazed at how easy this was to throw together. ** Rotisserie chicken or leftover grilled chicken would be a great cooked chicken to use for this recipe. Time does not include cooking the chicken as it is to be cooked prior to assembling these wraps. ** A great sub idea that I'm going to try is the prepacked shredded cabbage, carrots and broccoli mix.
This is one of my all time FAVORITE sandwiches. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Onions and olives go together well with the mayo in this recipe... YUMMO! The Finger Roll recipe is GREAT around the holidays and for baby and bridal showers, graduations, weddings, parties, and family get togethers. Just omit the lettuce if making the Finger Rolls. Each can of tuna will make 3-4 finger rolls, depending on how full you make them, and how big the rolls are. You can double or triple this recipe, according to how many Finger Rolls you need.
