I have never been a low carb girl. I am not now a low-carb girl. I will never be a low carb girl.
That being said, here is a collection of some great tarts,quiches, pasties and anything else that involves carbs stuffed with veggies and, hopefully, more carbs!
These little guys are great to add to appetizer platters for parties and would also be great to pack in a picnic basket. The sticky sweetness of the balsamic onions works well with earthiness of the mushrooms and blue cheese. They are good cold. So, you don't have to worry about cooking them and keeping them warm during your event.
This was brought up to the cabin we stayed at in Stehekin, WA by my cousin by way of her daughter, Cinda. Lovely dish and very tasty. We made the crust with Bisquick because it packs in better than crescent rolls. Either way its a delicious idea.
This pie makes a lovely light supper dish. It takes very little time to put together and bake. Serve it with your favorite salad. This recipe is adapted from a cookbook by The Sons of Italy Florida Foundation.
They don't call me the Sassy Chef for nothing, This onion pie is so delicious, a taste teaser, almost as good as "french onion soup" andthis dish has already acquired many fans. Since I love bread and soup, why not pull the two together in a harmonious ensemble of flavors... crusted dough, onions, beef and cheese. When the cheese melts on top and the broth meets the cheese, it looks so gourmet, and you will feel very proud of yourself. It makes a nice dish for any occasion.
This is a recipe that was dictated to me by a friend during lunch out. Her DH and two teen aged sons love this and it is simple as pie to make, LOL. Very versitile, you can use different cheeses, cooked beef or sauteed veges instead of chicken, and any kind of salsa you like.
This recipe sounds very good and uses fresh asparagus. Again, it is a recipe from Betty Crocker Bisquick cookbooklet, October 1998. If you are like me and do not like to debone and pick thru canned salmon there is also a package of salmon. I believe it is Chicken of the Sea and is in the aisle with the tuna in the grocery store. My mom has used the packaged tuna and said it does taste a bit better than the canned and not so much of the mess.
I have been working on perfecting the perfect crustless quiche recipe for years. I always use spinach, but I bought some Rainbow Swiss Chard at the local farmer's market today, and I thought I'd give it a try in quiche. I used Rainbow Chard (pink/yellow/white/orange stems---- BEAUTIFUL), but you can use any chard (or try substituting other greens) I do notice that fresh greens give a much better taste than frozen greens though!
This is my family's favorite quiche recipe. I tend to make it on Friday nights, when my vegetarian stepdaughter arrives home from the week at university with a large appetite for something home-cooked and satisfying. Serve with a bowl of soup or a salad, and you've got just that. What makes it so delicious in my opinion is the "secret ingredient" . . . mustard smeared on the bottom of the crust.I have noted one TBS in the recipe, but use as much as you need to provide an even coating. This quiche definitely tastes as good cold as warm from the oven, and makes a nice appetizer when cut in small portions, as well.
This most typical savory pie is served for Carnevale (the day before Ash Wednesday) and then again for Easter. Though many recipes for pizza rustica specify that the dried sausage, mozzarella and other filling ingredients be layered, in the Neapolitan version, they are diced and added to the ricotta filling, making the resulting pie easier to cut into wedges.
The listed ingredients are sufficient to fill an 8x8x3 inch caserole.
It is interesting to note that some of the folks warmed this dish. We always ate it at room temperature.
