I just got myself a 10 cup rice cooker and have enjoyed using it for different rice recipes. Today I'm making baked fish and wanted something nice for a side dish. I think this one will work just great. The wild rice I used was from the Indian Cultural Center here in Albuquerque. The rice was grown in Minnisota and harvested by the natives up there. You can garnish this with some chives or green onions if you wish.
I wanted to try the Gluten Free Four Mix I got at the health food store. These are tiny cookies with a crunchy short bread consistency to them. I got 47 cookies out of my batch, the recipe says 44, so I guess it varies with the size of cookie you make. I didn't have any sanding sugar so just used my raw cane to which I added some freshly ground nutmeg. You could probably add cinnamon or other spices that you like. The original recipe comes out of the March 2010 Vegetarian Times Magazine. Note I didn't include the chilling time for the dough or the cooking time for the pecans in this recipe.
Maca is a very interesting super food and good for so many things in our body. This site gives a good break down of how beneficial it is.: http://www.macaroot.com/benefits/index.html
Maca has a slightly bitter taste so it's good to mix it in with stronger tasting ingredients. You can find Maca in most health food stores. I have added various things to my shake. Today I'm having strawberries instead of carob.
This morning my hubby brought me some lovely parsnips fresh out of the garden. They over wintered and he asked that I mash them. I didn't have enough so I added some Yukon Gold potatoes to them and the combination is quite delicious. I didn't peel my potatoes, however that's optional.
A cake/muffins recipe you can use with your fruit juicer pulp. All types, too. I find most places talk about only using one or two types of pulp. I have a mixture of all types. I pulled information from a bunch of other cake/muffin recipes, so, props to everyone on RecipeZaar! I'm sure someone could alter it for muffins.
Snow white buttery toasted pecans that look wonderful placed on your holiday table. This is Bird's own recipe for something so simple and yet so yummy! Great for gift giving as well. These can be enjoyed year round. Be careful as they can become addicting! If you'd like to send your senses into a yummy frenzy of 'hot & sweet', try adding a dash or two of cayenne pepper into the mix. ;)
This is a fairly simple desert, and happens to be a rather healthy alternative to the many other butter and lard packed deserts. It may lack the crumbles in the dough, but it makes up for it in the flavour and the nutrient content. Due to bitterness in some varieties of honey, you may need to adjust this recipe slightly.
Looking forward to trying this one and wanted to save it first. I think we'll try it as a crock pot recipe as i've had lots of success roasting chickens that way. The recipe comes from Spark Recipes and looks yummy as well as healthy (go figure).
Prep time includes marination overnight in fridge. :) Crockpot would be 8 hours on low rather than the 5 hours in the oven.
This marinade will produce the most tender and not to mention the best tasting steak and it's enough for up to four steaks about 1-1/2-inches thick --- just remember to bring the steaks to almost room temperature before grilling this will relax the meat fibers and make for a more tender juicy steak --- the amounts may be doubled but keep the garlic at the same amount, for best results it is recommended to not substitute any ingredients, do not add any salt to the marinade and do not salt the meat until ready to grill --- this marinade may be used for any cut of steaks.
Kids get a kick out of these. Pour into maragarita glasses w/ sugar or salt around the rim. It's not necessary to partially freeze the yogurt, but it does make it more cool and "slushy." Prep time includes the partial freezing.
