A mix of canned tomatoes, potatoes, & peppers. A nice side dish to go with sausages, chops, steak, or chicken. As a vegetarian dish this makes a meal in a pan!
NOTE: Do not hurry the cooking time as this tastes better as the liquid disappears and the mixture browns. Another of my 'Alison Holst' collection of made often dishes.
A simple marinated zucchini salad from Italy.
The zucchini is uncooked but through marinating and the use of plenty of lemon juice the zucchini acquires an "al dente"/semi-cooked texture. I only make this recipe at the peak of zucchini season in summer when quality and selection are best. From Mediterranean Light. Especially good with fresh basil!
The humble chickpea is low in fat, rich in fibre, complex carbohydrate, and protein, and is a good source of calcium, iron and B vitamins.
I'm not a huge fan of canned soups, but they do have their uses sometimes!
This sauce could be used with anything, but goes well with chickpeas and new potatoes. Paneer cheese is also delicious.
From The Very Easy Vegetarian Cookbook, Alison & Simon Holst.
I actually came up with this recipe to use up some left-over steamed asparagus I had in the fridge. Feel free to add any other veggie of your choice or combination of veggies. Broccoli would work well, as would peas.
Update...made this the other day and added uncooked shrimp in the beginning. That was pretty awesome!
An easy, delicious green bean pickle. From the Mississippi Valley Chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. While this recipe is written in an old-fashioned way, it is perfectly safe if processed using modern methods.

I got this recipe from my friend Bethan in Wales. She's a vegetarian and always attends these wonderful meetings that involve very health conscious people. She often shares things with me and I was delighted when she sent me this little brochure with 3 very interesting Herbal Recipes that were put out by the West Wales Herb Group. I thought I'd share them with everyone on Recipezaar. I haven't made any of these as of yet, but if I do, I'll use agave nectar in it instead of sugar.
Raw Vegans will definitely like this one. It's really tasty. I didn't follow the directions exact because I wanted to keep my tomatoes and avocado a little on the chunky side so I didn't add them until after the kale was massaged. I also cut back on the cayenne because neither my DH or I care for our food too hot or spicy. According to the recipe this is a good for your heart and cholesterol. I got the recipe from Gone Vegan.
These wraps make a lovely breakfast, light lunch or entrée. This recipe was originally from a free health magazine. Makes at least 8 wraps. Serve with a little hollandaise sauce if desired. Can easily use parmesan cheese in place of the pecorino and any herbs of your preference
This method will create a perfect cooked rice --- remember not to stir at anytime while cooking or the rice will stick to the bottom of the pot, and do not cover with a lid until all water is absorbed, for this method use only long grain white rice, please see directions for water amount.
This is the method used by restaurants to whip butter to make it easier to spread, and for economical reasons to make butter go a lot further too. You can make it fancy like restaurants do by putting this mixture into a cake decorating tube with a fancy tip and pipe it into small dishes for individual servings. I have even used a plastic bag, cut off the corner, placed a fancy decorating tip in the corner, added the butter mixture and piped it into tiny dishes I got at the dollar store. One for each dinner guest is a nice touch.
I store the whipped butter in a glass covered container on the counter top in cooler weather. In warmer weather I store it in the refrigerator and bring it to room temperature before using.
