This dish makes and excellent Appetizer, Snack or Main Dish. It's also a great introduction into the vegan world, if you want to convert kids or meat-eaters to a healthier lifestyle.
They taste great with sauces & dips or by themselves. You need to make a lot though. When I make them, they only last for a few minutes. You might want to double or triple this batch.
This recipe comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction - 125+ fast & filling low-fat vegan recipes. Isa recommends serving this with her recipes Unfried Fried Rice & Five-Spice Delicata Squash which can be found in her book. I made these for some non vegan friends who were weary of tofu but they said these were amazing!! This recipe is very easy & the result is cool & crisp on the outside while warm & sweet on the inside. YUM!!
This recipe is from "New Recipes from Moosewood Restaurant." It is easy enough that I was able to make it without creating a large mess to clean up, which is not often the case. We had a big Sunday dinner yesterday and only wanted something light for supper. This along with some bread was perfect.
I was trying to find a way to have curry and clean out my refridgerator at the same time. This is what I came up with. I froze half of this after a dinner party of 4 people along with another side dish and some pita bread. I'm also writing this down so that I don't forget it. If you want this spicy, substitute the curry powder for 1 tsp green curry paste. Can and package sizes are estimates.
Occasionally you stumble across the most amazing things when you're not even looking for them. I was looking for a Canadian dish for ZWT II, tripped over a bump called "The New Enchanted Broccoli Forest" cookbook by Mollie Katzen & fell face-down in a bowl of this soup. I gotta tell ya ... this looks so good to me, is 1 of the easiest recipes I've ever found, is definitely in the basement of the "evil calorie house" & has my much cherished Tex-Mex thing goin on too! I can hardly wait to try this! ... Per the recipe, "Showcase those underipe tomatoes in this delicious & gloriously colored Mexican variation on a Spanish theme. If you can't find green tomatoes, use the least ripe ones available." (Stated time does not include chilling time)
This is a deliciously nutritious pie recipe that I had thought I royal messed-up. I believe my royal mess-up turned out quite nice :)
It's not too sweet. So it's definitely very enjoyable. And best of all, it's painfully nutritious! You'll feel the happy vitamins and enzymes running rampant in your body!... not really, but you get the idea.
From Sergei and Valya Boutenko's Eating Without Heating: Favorite Recipes from Teens Who Love Raw Food. They say about it: "You can make nori rolls, cabbage wraps, spread it on crackers, stuff mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and more." I have adapted it to fit in my little Oscar food processor.
Salty and lemony and low-cal and very good for you! From the December 2007 issue of Cottage Living. Prettiest with red and white cabbage, but you could use one or the other as I've noticed that "small" heads of cabbage are hard to find. One medium head of either cabbage will work too. You might want to let the flavors mix in the fridge overnight, but the recipe didn't call for it:D Really great for a picnic!
