The DH asked me to save this recipe here for safe keeping, it is from a recently purchased cookbook entitled Chinese Cooking Made Easy. Times are estimated and have not included marinating time or soaking time for the wood-ear. IMPORTANT NOTE - I have listed mushrooms dried as food.com would not accept dried wood-ear or cloud-ear which can be bought at specialist asian grocers.
Although this recipe calls for carrots and baby spinach, feel free to chop up a bit of whatever fresh vegetable you have to throw into this soup. I've used zucchini, a bit of eggplant....just whatever I have a bit extra of. From Bon Appetit magazine.
My family loves enchiladas! This recipe makes them just as yummy but with half the labor! You can substitute canned enchilada sauce and refried beans but making them from scratch makes it so much more delicious! You can also substitute additional water or vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
This is from Taste of Homes Light & Tasty 2003 cookbook which I received in the 2011 Cookbook Swap from BusyMomof3. The feature I like about these recipes are the give the diabetic exchanges with each recipe. For this one a serve of 3/4 cup is equivalent to 1 vegetable and 1/2 starch and if you wish to lower the sodium they advise to use reduced-sodium tomato juice and skip the salt in the recipe. They also say that you can drink it warm or chilled. I would suggest serving with a stick of celery which will alter the exchange amount.
Very simple sounding, but delicious. Also serve the clarified butter sauce on scallops, shrimp, or artichokes. I love it on scallops! Very versatile! You can also sub shallots or rosemary for the garlic. From Bon Appetit. Prep time does not include the time to get your grill ready.
This is my tribute to my recent trip to London. I had something similar in a small pub, and it was my favorite meal in the grand ol' city! The first time I made this I used cream of mushroom soup and 1 Tablespoon of beef boullion in place of the beefy mushroom soup.
