This is from Cooking Light, January 2004. They suggest it as a vegetarian main dish, or you can add meat/seafood to your taste. Posting for safekeeping. I will likely make this with whole wheat couscous or even quinoa.
From TOH--“Here’s a speedy and satisfying version of traditional minestrone soup. The fun polka-dot shapes of the couscous, baby carrots and black beans give this stew its name.” -Teagan O'Toole, Boston, Massachusetts
The editor's note states that barley may be used for the couscous. I will likely use broth instead of water.
This is from Eating Well, and I am posting for safekeeping. They say "These easy sweet potato fritters have a crispy crust and a tender middle. The beans are flavored with smoked paprika, but sweet or hot would work well too. To give it a Mexican-inspired twist, use chili powder as the spice instead of the paprika." Reviewers on that site say the fritters are a bit dry and benefit from a sour cream/yogurt sauce or even a sweet chutney. Posting for safekeeping.
From about.com, posting for ZWT 7, South America. This combines two of my favorite things, lentils and sweet potatoes! Recipe is credited to Marian Blazes, who says "Toss it all together and serve warm, adding a few baby spinach leaves for something green. This is a healthful salad that everyone will enjoy. " Servings are a guess...please help me if this needs correcting!
No, I don't mean grilled pound cake--I mean cake baked on the grill! This is a mini-cake that I came up with when my oven broke just before DH's birthday, and it turned out so well that I thought I would post. This is perfect for a small family, or maybe even for camping! I'm sure you can use full-fat stuff for the reduced if you wish, and feel free to mix up the fruit for what you have on hand! It is important to keep the cake on indirect heat, and I covered mine with foil to prevent "smoky" flavors from creeping in.
This is from Fast-Scratch Vegetarian by Land O' Lakes, and it was a staple during my veg days. It is quick and easy to throw together and quite a hearty meal! I usually make my own crust, and often make it much larger than 12 inch.
This is from a recipe in Easy Vegetarian Meals from Green Giant. I have long since decided I don't care for the stir-fry itself, but the sauce has been a go-to recipe for me for years. You can make a stir-fry of whatever you like and whip up this quick sauce to top it. I often double the recipe for my stir-fries, which tend to be on the larger size. Note: this does have a bit of zip, so be wary if you are feeding it to little ones and moderate the red pepper accordingly.
These are tasty little nuggets from Cooking Light. They're not too sweet but just right. I think next time I make them I will add dried cranberries or some nuts, as IMO they need some more texture. When I made them I used white wheat flour and regular milk, and I'm sure buttermilk would be lovely. II also sprinkled with cinnamon sugar instead of plain granulated, and I bet turbinado would be nice as well.
This recipe from Taste of Home sounds lovely and delicious--perfect for a holiday table! I am posting here with lighter ingredients, but feel free to use the high-test kind :). Submitted by Sheree Stahn.
I found this on athenos.com and have lightened it up a bit AND cut the original recipe in half. I adore feta, I adore crackers...this is an easy win! I will say that if you use plain feta you might want to include some garlic powder, or perhaps some dried oregano. Maybe even add some olives/crushed red pepper/spinach? The possibilities are deliciously endless! Cook time does not include chill time.
This is one of those recipes that you just can't walk away from at the summer potluck. My sister's MIL makes it and I beg her for it every chance I get! Apparently it is a family recipe in her hubby's family, though I can't say I know who Mabel was. Regardless, I owe thanks to Mabel for a darn fine salad that is bright, refreshing, and COMPLETELY addictive! Number of servings is my best guess, and prep time does not include overnight refrigeration.
This just came to me in an email from Cascadian Farms and I am posting it here for safekeeping. The recipe is credited to Shaina Olmanson. I found them rather sweet, so I will probably reduce the honey/sugar. Instead of making a drizzle I just added chocolate chips and butterscotch chips into the mixture, which was yummy but again added to the sweetness. Experiment! Let me know what you change to make it work for your family :). Time does not include cooling time.
From Favediets.com. They say "This veggie and potato casserole is a delicious way to enjoy a vegetarian meal or have a flavorful side dish with your main course. Try mixing and matching your favorite vegetables for a variation." When I made it I used a combination of broccoli and cauliflower. I did add the salt, pepper, and spices; the original calls only for garlic. I might switch up the cheese next time as well, as I think mozzarella or monterrey jack (think something gooier) would be even better.
