Quinoa is a South American grain that is slowly making its way into the American menu. This grain imparts a lovely nutty flavor that is a welcome addition to the plate -- and its high fiber and protein content is good for you. Have begun using quinoa in place of rice for many sides including this one here. This recipe can easily be doubled for larger families or parties.
I eat oatmeal 3 or 4 times a week and find myself looking for new ways to add flavor and interest without adding a lot of calories. This morning's experiment was worth sharing. Feel free to adjust to your dietary and taste preferences.
I found this recipe in a circular a long time ago and have adapted it over time. Can’t remember which part of it is part of the original and what parts are my additions. This is a quick and easy side that perks up a basic grilled chicken breast or as a companion to tortilla chips.
Sometimes I will top a bed of greens with leftover grilled chicken and this salsa for an easy and flavorful lunch.
As part of the 2005 RecipeZaar World Tour I've been searching for International recipes to introduce new flavors and ideas to our meal plans. This one is from Diabetic Gourmet via a friend, but it looks quite promising. For those like me following the WW Core plan it's Core plus the points for the matzo meal.
This recipe comes from New Zealand celebrity chef Mike King courtesy of the NZ Pork Industry Board. The marinade is simple to prepare and imparts a wonderful smell and aroma to the pork. As written, this recipe includes my favorite vegetables for kebabs but you should feel free to use your own. Cooking time includes marinading the pork.
What an unusual use for this glorious summer fruit! A Danish recipe that I thoroughly enjoyed. Though the original recipe called for vanilla, I found that the lemon zest did more to perk up the flavor of the berries. Cooking time does not include cooling time.
Found this German recipe on one of my favorite vegetarian websites. Leeks & apples go quite well together so I'm looking forward to trying this. When i do get to it, I'm thinking of adding a bit of fresh sage. Posted for the Zaar World Tour
Found this recipe on the website of a German cook named Marion. Though honey and mustard are commonly paired, the addition of orange and dill is new to me. This is an untried recipe posted for the Zaar World Tour.
I found this one while wandering the website of the Australian Vegetarian Society's website. It really reflects how modern Aussie cuisine has been influenced by other regions of the globe. Plan to try this soon but posting it untried for the Zaar World Tour. As presented it uses the original ingredients with my interpretation of how to prepare the dish. Cooking time is estimated.
On a recent outing in NYC with some friends I met here on Recipezaar, we went out for Peruvian food where I fell in love with this dish. Naturally, looked for a recipe and this one appears close. Have not tried it yet but plan to soon.
New to slow cooking, I recently came across this recipe while perusing a cookbook from Mom's collection. Though I have not tried this yet, I'm keeping it here safe for when the time comes. I'm guessing that the honey mustard can be replaced with a combination of equal parts dijon mustard and honey.
This is based on a Weight Watchers recipe modified to suit my own tastes. A wonderfully simple salad that can play center stage at the meal or accompany grilled meat and vegetables. Travels well and would work well for a potluck or picnic.
Not sure where the original version came from but this includes my tweaks over the years. The results are a lovely crepe than can used for entreés or desserts without having to worry about fat and calories. Bon appettit! For those following Weight Watchers, it's 2 points per serving.
Based on a Cooking Light recipe, this has been modified to suit my own tastes. The sweet onions and balsamic vinegar create a lovely contrast in flavors that pair together so well. I usually serve this with couscous or brown rice with a green vegetable such as zucchini or spinach. Reheats well for lunch the next day.
Inspired by a recipe from Cooking Light, this is a simple but full flavored dish. The original calls for flounder but works well with sole and other mild fishes. Really surprised this isn't in the 'Zaar collection already as it is one of our favorites.
The original recipe comes from one of my favorite Italian cookbooks. Adapted to my own tastes and availability of ingredients, this comforting stew packs lots of flavor and can easily be thrown together for a mid-week meal. I usually serve mine with a nice green salad on the side.
A traditional Fool is made with generous amounts whipped heavy cream with fruit gently folded in. This lighter alternative uses sour cream and yogurt and originated in Cooking Light. I have adapted it a bit to my own tastes and preferences.
