This delicious vegetarian meal is packed with nutrients. If you've never tried kale, this is a good recipe to try! Kale tastes similar to spinach but retains its leafy texture. From Jeanne Lemlin's "Main Course Vegetarian Pleasures."
I am posting it here for safe keeping and will be making before long. It looks absolutely delicious. It is a traditional Ramadan Soup. UPDATE - I have now made the soup and love it; I made it with red lentils which worked fine.
This is one of those make loads and eat for days recipes - easy and tasty. If you absolutely must, you can use canned tomatoes - but only if you can't get fresh tomatoes. I got the original recipe from Australian Women's Weekly Low Fat Meals in Minutes book.
I made this for dinner tonight, and the whole family loved it. I make lentils and rice quite often in a million and one different ways, and never with a recipe, but decided to post this one for safe keeping so that I can make it this way again. I served this as a rice ring (with easy glazed carrots and raisins in the middle). I had no onions on hand, but this would be excellent with carmelized onions on top. You may need to use a little more or less water depending on the age of your lentils. I used 6 1/2 cups, and it was perfect. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
This is a popular dish in North India, and is quick, easy and fuss free. Everyone has their own way of doing it, and this is the way i do it. When i am exhausted and too tired to do much else, i make this dish. Other people use a lesser amont of lentil to rice, but i use a 50/50 cos thats the way my husband likes it, moist. Some people prefer it drier. The choice is yours. You can also vary the type of rice and split lentil you use, but then cooking times will vary.
A friend of mine just told me about this recipe, she makes it all the time. I am a guacaholic and its a great way to use green and yellow zucchini. Use your favorite guacamole recipe. You can add some favorite spices to the cooking, or Italian dressing to the wrap if you want. Its adaptable :) Serve with Sweet Potato Fries as a main dish, or just have as a sandwich. Cooking time does not include making your own guacamole, which i usually do, or buy premade.
This came out of the Weight Watchers Cookbook but it is far from tasting like WW. It is 2 points for a one-cup serving and DELICIOUS. These veggies are great reheated or cold in pita bread for lunch with some hummus. They make a wonderful accompaniment to any meat or fish dish. My daughter discovered this recipe and makes it all the time, too. This makes two large baking sheets full of yummy veggies. NOTE: Sometimes I add a couple of handfuls of frozen brussel sprouts (whole) to the sheet in place of the asparagus and sometimes I get piggy and add both.
This cupcake recipe is from the book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. You can make this recipe using soy margarine or canola oil. IF USING OIL INSTEAD OF MARGARINE DOUBLE THE SALT. I have only used the canola oil in this recipe and the results were surprisingly delicious. The texture is good and so is the flavor.
Created for the Dining on a Dollar contest. At first this was inspired by Senegalese peanut soup which has Asian influences but it evolved more into a South African curry with the addition of dried fruit which is optional if you don't like fruit in your curry. This turned out very flavorful and filling. The peanut butter is an undertone and not overpowering. It's packed full of good fats, fiber and protein. I made this Vegetarian but you could easily add chicken broth and chicken. I made this mild but you could increase the chilies to spice it up. Next time I may try chopped fresh tomatoes and green onions on top. Enjoy!
This is from wikicookbooks. I have never tried it but here for safe keeping. Pandora's Feast is a complete vegan meal that can be served several times a week due to the ease with which it can be modified. The meal is easy to prepare in a rice cooker.
