------So easy, so healthy, so cheap! This is not a curry. It's a spicy, nutritious one-pot dish. Can -- actually should -- be made the day before, as flavours definitely improve on standing: this was clear when I tucked into the leftovers. It's not a glamorous dish: it's rustic and robust.
It's quicker still to throw together if you first mix the spices together in a bowl, and also prepare the vegetables, before you start. Do not use substitutions (except those suggested) and do use fresh spices! Old spices are useless.------
These are delicious, and very low in fat! I've served these with all sorts of dips, salsas, or hummus, and they always disappear-even before all the store bought chips or crackers. Feel free to experiment with the different spices shaken over the tops. Cumin is great for Mexican dips, but the Garlic Powder works really well too. Cayene pepper might be nice too if you like things a bit more spicy!
From WW magazine. Eat these plain or add a sprinkling of crumbled queso fresco, freshly grated parmesan, or shredded mozzarella cheese. These can be made ahead and frozen. Look for masarepa in Latino grocery stores, it will usually be labeled as masarepa or harina de maiz precocida. You can also find it at ethnicgrocer.com
An untried raw food vegan recipe that was recommended on a vegan newsgroup I lurk on.
Aug 2004: Finally got around to making these myself. They are pretty sticky so I rolled them in coconut just like truffles. Big hit with the 3 year old and me. Would be worth putting in the fridge or freezer to firm them up.
Great with Salsa, Guacamole, Hummus, whatever you like to dip! Super fast and easy with oil spray. Makes great cinnamon sugar chips for kids and desserts, too. *** Can substitute pita bread for pita chips or corn tortillas for corn chips.
From weight watchers website. This is yummy. Not your traditional falafel, but fantastic for not being deep fried and much healthier this way.
Note: If your chick pea mixture is too dry to form nice patties (which seems to happen with some of the canned chick pea brands) then just add some liquid to them to help them bind together, such as tahini, lemon juice, oil or water.
My Sister-In-Law makes these nuts for the holidays. They are so easy to make and will disappear quick, so make a couple batches, give them as gifts or simply put in a candy dish around the house during the holidays. So Yummy!
