This is from "Herbs and Spices the Cook's Reference" by Jill Norman. I've never seen one like this! It sounds more like a flavored oil sauce. Serve with poached or baked fish, grilled meats, artichokes, cauliflower or broccoli.
This is way better than any banana cream pie I’ve ever had. I liked it with whipped cream, my Hubby and Mother liked the cherry topping. I tried this with 2x the bananas and it wasn’t as good…it was mushy.
From: "Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way" by Lorna Sass. "Stir-fries are ideal for quick meals, especially when you have leftover cooked barley--or any other sturdy grain." "To make prep quicker still, purchase the chicken already sliced for stir-fry."
Adapted from: "Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen". "Barley is a thirsty, thirsty grain. It can drink up to around four times its volume in water--or the soup liquid--so I strongly suggest a two-hour soak before cooking so that you end up with soup rather than a barley dish. Of course you can always thin a thickened soup with water, but flavor is lost when you do that. If you don't have time for a soak, at least cover your barley with hot water while you prep everything to give it a a head start."
Wow, do these sound good! I bet they would still be good with an unfried corn tortilla like a soft taco. Or fry the tortilla like a taco instead of a taquito. If you can't find blue use white or yellow corn tortillas.
Mandy from Oz requested her recipe#243686 be made lighter so I took on the challenge. I not only cut the fat and sugar but added more flavor. Yum! I started with 1 serving of her recipe and worked off of that and made it 2 servings. I think this would be good with bananas tossed in orange juice mixed in it too! There are more ways to make it even lighter which I have offered below. You could also omit the sauce. ***Nutrition facts for Splenda brown sugar blend: 1/2 tsp= 10 calories and 2g sugars.
