    Delicious for those who love Moroccan flavorings, really low fat and really quick to prepare. From an October 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Fresh Living'. The preparation time below does not include the 15 minutes marinating time.

    Recipe #159724

    From the Simply Great Meals website. Tender, spicy chicken pieces served with a cool, sweet yoghurt sauce! Low calorie, low fat and low cholesterol.

    Recipe #151409

    A simple and delicious way to transform fried eggs into a substantial one-dish brunch or snack dish. I read the basic idea for this recipe somewhere recently, then couldn't find it again, but I added to the original idea - which just had garlic sautéed in the oil before adding the eggs - when I made this for brunch yesterday. I used some wonderfully orange-yolked free range eggs which certainly added to the visual appeal! Everyone loved it, and I'll be making this again! The proportions used could, of course, easily be varied.

    Recipe #150759

    A tasty, nutritious and easy to prepare side dish, adapted from Sandy Frazer's 'Living Lite family recipes: delicious, healthy meals in 15 minutes'.

    Recipe #149207

    A low fat, low calorie vegetable spread (with NO cholesterol) which can be used instead of butter or margarine on pita bread, rolls or sandwiches before adding the other ingredients; or as a dip. Adapted from Karen Meyer's 'The Artful Vegetarian', and posted for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge.

    Recipe #147894

    A fabulously creamy yet very low fat sauce (only 3.4g fat), which you can enjoy while still eating super-healthily! Here the sauce is combined with lightly steamed vegetables, but you could also serve it with pasta, patties, latkes or nut loaves, or with non-vegetarian recipes such as meatballs, meat loaves and salmon or crab patties. For a richer flavour, add curry powder, or your choice of herbs or spices while the sauce is being blended. Adapted from a recipe in Karen Meyer's 'The Artful Vegetarian' and posted here for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge. Vary the vegetables to suit your taste preferences, what's seasonable and what you have on hand.

    Recipe #147880

    A vegetarian pasta sauce which I hope will appeal to vegetarians, and to those committed to having at least some meat-free meals. It can, of course, be made using any pasta - either regular or wholemeal. Adapted from a recipe in Karen Meyer's 'The Artful Vegetarian' and posted for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge. One of my adaptations was to add the carrot, on the recommendation of an old Italian lady who (with reference to pasta dishes made with meat) told me that in her village carrot was the secret ingredient to a successful pasta sauce. Certainly baby carrots add sweetness. If you are not using baby carrots, and if you don't usually add some sweetness, give it a try. You could add a teaspoon of sugar or honey, to taste. Whatever its source, the sweetness blends beautifully with the other flavours, particularly with the tomatoes.

    Recipe #147518

    A healthy, low fat, low calorie recipe adapted from a book - which in effect - I retrieved from my culinary archives just recently. Karen Meyer's 'The Artful Vegetarian' was published in 1988, a long time ago! I am posting this recipe here for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge.

    Recipe #147517

    The delicious rice crust makes this pie so much tastier and so much healthier than pies with a pastry crust. I have adapted it from a recipe in Karen Meyer's 'The Artful Vegetarian', and I am posting it for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge!

    Recipe #147047

    For beetroot lovers! A delicious, very low calorie, VERY low fat (0.1g!) side dish to accompany any main course. I found this recipe in Karen Meyer's 'The Artful Vegetarian' and I have adapted it slightly in posting it for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge.

    Recipe #147044

    A wonderfully healthy low fat vegetarian pie with a brown rice crust. This recipe is also free of dairy products and eggs. I’ve adapted it from a recipe in Karen Meyer's 'The Artful Vegetarian', and I am posting it for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge! I was inspired to go looking among my recipe books after recently making ClareVH’s Recipe #83812. I knew that somewhere was a recipe I’d made years ago with a rice crust, and I found this one. I’m not a hundred percent sure if this is the one I’ve made previously. From memory it was, but I certainly I haven’t tried it recently! This pie could be made with white rice (brown rice is more nutritious), but I’d suggest not using instant rice, and the vegetables could, of course, be varied to suit your tastes and what you have on hand. The original recipe, in the filling, had kuzi (a Japanese arrowroot) listed as an alternative ingredient to arrowroot, but Zaar didn't recognise kuzi as an ingredient. If you're feeling adventurous, you may want to hunt it out! If you enjoyed rice the crust in this recipe, you may also like my Recipe #147047.

    Recipe #147043

    A refreshing tropical smoothie ideal for breakfast on the run (put it in an insulated lidded container and take it with you!) or for a leisurely brunch or an anytime snack! I often make this and take it to work in 2 Tupperware containers: one for breakfast, the other as a snack during the day.

    Recipe #146989

    A great detoxing drink adapted from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. She warns "watch out for the beetroot moustache"!

    Recipe #146939

    A delicious breakfast jam-packed with nutrition, or an any time snack, adapted from flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. Wheat grass contains loads of essential vitamins and minerals and turns your drink a luscious green! If you like your drinks a little sweeter, add honey, to taste.

    Recipe #146690

    A delicious low-fat smoothie, sweetened naturally with honey, with extra nutrition from wheat germ and sunflower seeds, and extra flavour from cinnamon. A great morning-pick-me-up! I often take some to work in a Tupperware container with a firm lid, and enjoy it as a mid-morning snack.

    Recipe #146467

    A delicious, unusual and low-fat filling for an at-home - or a to-take-to-work - sandwich. If taking the sandwich to work, I recommend taking the filling in a separate container and assembling the sandwich just before you eat it. I found this recipe in the 'Australian Women's Weekly's 'SLIM: low-fat eating for life', and I'm posting it for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge. I'm looking to fillings like this now rather than cheese, which I'd just l-o-v-e to eat all the time! For a really healthy bread, I recommend soy and linseed bread or a wholegrain bread. This may be higher in calories but it's a lower GI so it will sustain you for much longer.

    Recipe #146466

    A low calorie, low fat, delicious and refreshing salad with a citrus dressing which was with a recipe for orange-glazed pork cutlets. I haven't posted the pork cutlets part of the recipe (just zmail me if you want it). I found this in The Australian Women's Weekly's 'SLIM: low-fat eating for life', and I'm posting it for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge.

    Recipe #146461

    A deliciously spiced coffee which enhances the coffee drinking experience, and is therefore particularly welcome when you're aiming to reduce the calories in your daily diet. Because it has no milk, it has NO fat and, at 17 calories, it is super-low in calories. Compare that with a creamy cappuccino! Adapted from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes', and posted for the post-ZWT Healthy for the Holidays Challenge! When I make this next time, I'm going to try it without the fennel seeds and with a tablespoon of orange juice.

    Recipe #145671

    Another fabulous recipe for smoked salmon lovers from the November/December issue of 'donna hay magazine: turn simple into special'. A simple variation on tabouli, which really makes this a stand alone dish, and great therefore for take-to-work lunches. I recommend serving this with Jessica K's Pita Crisps Recipe #121546.

    Recipe #146363

    Another recipe for smoked salmon lovers adapted from a recipe in the November/December 2005 issue of the 'donna hay magazine: turn simple into special'. I have posted two other smoked salmon recipes from this issue. Serve this with Theodore Kyriakou’s Recipe #141988 or, if you are feeling more adventurous, his Recipe #141992, or with your own favorite salad.

    Recipe #146360
