    A French-Canadian entree recipe for salmon fillet seared over a high heat and served with a maple mustard seed sauce. I found this recipe on a French-Canadian food website, and have adapted it for posting for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. No serving sizes or preparation or cooking times were provided, so I have provided guesstimates. If you are reviewing this recipe, it would be helpful if you comment on these if you find the times to be different from my guesstimates. Thank you! This recipe was recommended on the website as being a particularly suitable dish to serve during Fall and Spring.

    Recipe #137506

    An easy to prepare dish which can be served at room temperature as part of an antipasto-style spread or warm as an accompaniment to meat or fish. Adapted from 'mediterranean kitchens' by Murdoch Books, for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #136649

    A Jewish recipe, originally from "Foods From Eastern Europe Add Variety to Purim Menus" which I have adapted from one I found on www.jewish.com. Posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #136498

    Garlicky, lemony Italian-style grilled steaks served with steamed spinach. Adapted from a recipe on Huey's website. Huey (Iain Hewitson) is a popular Australian chef who hosts a TV show twice each weekday and has written several books. He also owns Tolarno's restaurant in Melbourne.

    Recipe #136215

    A flavoursome and visually stunning recipe which will serve you equally well as an appetiser, as a light lunch or as part of a nearly vegetarian meal from Australian chef Iain Hewitson. This is a recipe which allows the key ingredients to be the stars: make sure you use the best quality ingredients you can find.

    Recipe #135885

    I found this intriguing recipe in Australian chef Iain Hewitson's book 'Tales and Recipes from a Travelling Cook'. Having tracked down the best Irish stew in Ireland - that served at The Common's Restaurant in Dublin - he arranged for the chef to cook it for him, only to discover that the chef was a Frenchman! Huey reports that the chef was "a terrific cook" and that his Irish stew was "thankfully, absolutely delicious". I've not yet tried this recipe. I've posted it for the Zaar World Tour 2005.

    Recipe #135497

    This is the stock used in a recipe I have just posted for Cashew and Leek Soup. It has been adapted from a book which I found today and just HAD TO BUY - 'Green: modern vegetarian recipes' by Australian cook Flip Shelton. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but all the recipes in the book sound wonderfully healthy; and this recipe is really quite different from the other vegetable stock recipes already posted. If you are wanting to make your own vegetable stock, you may want to combine the ideas here with another recipe. It's just that it could take a while to gather together the ingredients! As Flip says "It's so easy to make your own stock - plus it's a great way to use up things like vegetable peel (other than potato), carrot tops and bottoms, onion skins and the skinny inner stalks of celery. Start by saving well-washed vegetable peel in a plastic bag in the freezer. Keep adding to the bag until you have enough" to make this recipe. She doesn't mention making this in a crockpot, but this is where I'll be making it once I've got into the habit of saving the required ingredients!

    Recipe #135453

    Looking for Australian recipes for the Zaar World Tour 2005? Look no further! This is innovative Australian cuisine at its best: a most unusual and absolutely delicious-sounding recipe which I have adapted just slightly from a book I HAD TO BUY when I saw it today: 'Green: modern vegetarian recipes' by Australian cook Flip Shelton. As Flip says of this recipe you really can “brighten the darkest winter days with this warm, colourful salad”.

    Recipe #135365

    A delicious Thai salad which strikes the classic balance characteristic of Thai food between sour, salty, sweet and hot flavours. It contains lime (sour), fish sauce (salty), palm sugar (sweet) and chilli (hot). I have not made this, but if I were to do so, I would adjust the amounts to ensure it has only a smidgeon of heat! Or if I were feeling really cowardly (which is more likely), I’d simply leave out the chilli. Adjust the amounts to suit your tastes! This is another recipe I have found in the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living'. We have a lot of Asian migrants in Australia, and as a result a lot of fabulous Asian restaurants (representing the cuisines of many different countries) and many of the recipes in our cooking magazines frequently reflect these influences. I know lots of people whose favourite cuisine is Thai, so I thought that this was a recipe worth sharing. Because I am on unfamiliar ground with a recipe like this, I've made NO changes to it. I am posting it here for the Zaar World Tour 2005.

    Recipe #135168

    Beef steaks stuffed with pesto, spinach, onion and garlic slow-cooked in a crockpot, served with a sauce made from the juices and a simple potato dish. Adapted from a recipe in Betty Crocker's "Slow Cooker Cookbook".

    Recipe #133460

    Risotto Cakes made in a mini-muffin pan. A great way to use leftover risotto to make lunchbox snacks. This is one of those basic recipe ideas that you can easily adapt to use up whatever odds and ends of ingredients you have on hand. And it's a recipe that can easily be doubled. I've not frozen these, but I've always found rice dishes freeze well, so I'm sure you'll find you can also freeze them.

    Recipe #133300

    A delicious, creamy low calorie alternative to the more traditional white potato mash recipes which apparently is popular at many health spas. And you don't have to peel the sweet potatoes! Now that's a plus when time is scarce! Adapted from a recipe from the Spa at Doral, which I found in Prevention Healthy Cooking's 'Eat up; Slim down: tried-and-true recipes from real weight-loss winners' by Jane Kirby and David Joachim.

    Recipe #124938

    This is my adaptation of a Canyon Ranch Health Resort recipe from 'low-fat cooking guru' Jeanne Jones. It first caught my attention because of its low fat content; but with its fine blend of herbs, not surprisingly, it's also delicious. When I've served it, no one has in the least suspected that this is a low-fat recipe! I found it in Prevention Healthy Cooking's 'Eat up Slim down: tried-and-true recipes from real weight-loss winners' by Jane Kirby and David Joachim.

    Recipe #124839

    Chickpeas and apricots: now those are healthy ingredients in a muffin! This recipe was emailed to me from the Simply Great Meals Recipe Club. I haven't yet made it but it caught my attention because I was impressed by the healthy ingredients, particularly the inclusion of chickpeas and from a search on Zaar I couldn't find any muffin recipes containing chickpeas.

    Recipe #124642

    A delicious and unusual spaghetti dish, completely vegetarian, adapted from a recipe in Vicki Wild's 'Wild Sides: an A-Z of essential, exceptional vegetable side dishes'. Well this one is certainly exceptional - there was nothing even remotely like it already posted - but to me this is clearly a main course dish rather than a side dish. Depending on taste preferences, you may like to substitute some of the stock for wine. When I now make this, I use Recipe #135453 for the stock.

    Recipe #124598

    I have posted this delicious-sounding way to cook chicken – which you can have on the table in forty minutes - in response to a Forum Request for a recipe for Chinese-style Orange Chicken. I have adapted it from Lisa Pettit’s recipe in Prevention Healthy Cooking's 'Eat Up, Slim Down: Tried-and-true recipes and tips from real weight-loss winners' by Jane Kirby and David Joachim. Commenting on this recipe, Lisa says “When I’m craving Chinese-style sweet-and-sour chicken but don’t want the calories or fat, I turn to this recipe”. If you want to increase the orange flavour, substitute some of the soy sauce for orange juice: perhaps half soy sauce and half orange juice. This is a combination that I know works well in my Veal With Orange Sauce recipe #117835.

    Recipe #124299

    An everyday lamb dish with a subtle blend of flavours, that you can enjoy at any time of the year, without needing to either heat the oven or set up the BBQ. Adapted from English chef Louise Blair’s ‘Low GI Cookbook’. Like garlic, lemon in recipes is one of those ingredients that most people seem to either love or hate. If you’re not fond of lemon juice, omit the lemon rind and juice; fry the lamb steaks in 1/4 tablespoon olive oil and consider substituting a little of the vegetable stock for wine, perhaps a merlot or a dry white.

    Recipe #124181

    These herby potato cakes can be served as an appetiser with sour cream or tzazikki, as an accompaniment to grilled or roasted fish or meat, or with a salad as a flavoursome lunch, or as a snack. If serving as an appetiser, you'll probably want to make the cakes smaller. Adapted from 'Pan or Wok' recipes by International Masters Publishers.

    Recipe #123442

    A classic British potato dish, which is probably traditionally served with roast beef, English mustard and green peas. Adapted from a recipe on a 'Pan or Wok' recipe card from International Masters Publishers. A suggested variation on the card is that these potatoes can also be made with left-over roast potatoes. I've only made this dish with new potatoes, and served it as an accompaniment to grilled or BBQd meat.

    Recipe #123425

    A medley of vegetables sautéed in a wok or pan. Served with a salad, these Vegetable Chips make a great accompaniment to grilled fish or BBQd meats. Adapted from a 'Pan or Wok' recipe card by International Masters Publishers.
