    Vegetarian (Bean, Cheese, Tofu) Tried

    Soy protein can help lower bad cholesterol and triglycerides without changing HDL cholesterol. 25 gm/day can lower LDL 10 percent. You have to keep saturated and transfats low too, though, because they interfere with the liver's ability to remove LDL cholesterol from the body. Soy also protects bones by helping them "hang on" to calcium. It has a strong antioxidant effect thanks to the phytochemical isoflavone and helps maintain stable blood sugar levels thanks to soluble fiber. It contains omega-3 fatty acids and lots of minerals too. "Healthy Cooking Across America"

    Entered for safe-keeping. From Evelyn Tribole's "More Healthier Homestyle Cooking". Calories, fat and cholesterol were reduced by eliminating oil and sausage, and using more bell peppers. Fiber was increased by using more bell peppers and using brown rice instead of white rice. (Personal note: use a good-quality brown rice such as Texmati basmati, so you'll enjoy the taste of the brown rice and won't miss the white rice.) Capsicum are the same as bell peppers; I included both to enhance search options internationally.

    Recipe #351769

    A recipe from Ricardo posted for ZWT8 India

    Recipe #485256

    A very simple, cheap, filling side or main dish. I make this in my dorm room, all my friends come running at the smell and are delighted at the taste. It costs me about $2.25 to make. For more heat, use Hot Ro-tel.

    Recipe #352673

    Boulanee is a vegan flat-bread from Afghanistan baked or fried with a vegetable filling. It is usually served as an appetizer, side-dish, or main dish.

    Recipe #500048

    This is from Better Homes and Garden 30-Minute Dinners. Instead of the pouch of wild rice and regular rice, you can use 1.5 to 2 cups of cooked rice. I used brown boil-in-the-bag rice, and it came out great. This would be good topped with sour cream and/or avocados as well as the listed cherry tomatoes. Without the optional toppings, however, this is a pleasantly mild, soothing dish.

    Recipe #499219

    From Southern Living1984 Cookbook

    Recipe #370504

    A Moosewood recipe. I haven't tried it, but this is supposed to be rich and spicy. Don't skip the chopped scallions or chives!

    Recipe #134219

    This is so very good that one bite leads to 4 and 4 to 8. Dead easy too a few mins with the processor and 4 hrs of chill time, thats it!

    Don't know what to do with those beautiful, skinny Japanese eggplants? Try this. It's easy, healthy, and even better the next day. Slim Japanese eggplants are steamed and marinated in a spicy peanut dressing. Comes from World Vegetarian by Madhur Jaffrey. Can also be made with regular eggplants cut the same way.

    Figure friendly jalapeno poppers.

    Recipe #164823

    This recipe was adapted from ExtraVeganZa, which is a book I am thoroughly loving! For starters I halved the recipe - so you could easily double up again to get about enough for 6-7. There are a few things I did not halve including the curry powder and lime juice, just something to be aware of if you do double it, use those seasonings to taste. If you're using a hotter curry powder like Madras, you may want to add less. I added spinach and used regular onions, the original recipe called for green onions. This made 4 moderate servings, just right if you're serving with rice and/or roti. This didn't take long to make, and tasted even better the next day.

    Recipe #422465

    This is probably a silly post, but I made this for lunch today out of curiosity and was rather pleased with the results! It is a quick, easy, yummy lunch if you have leftover baked potatoes, but you could also cook one in the microwave in just a few minutes.

    A traditional Swiss recipe submitted for ZWT7. If necessary, suitable substitutes for the Appenzeller cheese would be Emmental, Gruyere or raclette cheese.

    Recipe #457962

    A new twist on the curious apple pie with cheddar cheese dessert combination but this time for breakfast! I was expecting not to like this. Source: thekitchn.

    Recipe #438961

    This soup sounds so quintessentially English to me with its classic combo of ingredients. Recipe source: Creative Cooking Vegetarian.

    This recipe is from *Stroganov to Strudel* (Great Traditional Cooking From Germany, Austria, Hungary & the Czech Republic). Per the intro, "Soups are a favourite in this area, served either as a main meal or a starter. Hearty soups range from creamy Czech soups w/light dumplings, to the famous fruit soups of Hungary & chunky soups of Germany, such as *Lentil Soup* containing sliced frankfurter." If your kids are not entirely opposed to veggie-based soups, then the sight of frankfurter slices may well tempt them to happily eat this healthy soup as a 1-dish meal. (Nearly all the time given is cook time, but I also allowed 15 min for ingredient prep). *Enjoy* !

    We had this recipe made for us several years back when my twins were babies. We love it and eat it often, especially during the winter. Leftovers have even more flavor and it freezes well. I've made this with dried herbs or fresh. A lot of people turn their nose up at the sound of Lentil soup and they have been converted with this one!

    Recipe #50254

    This is an easy to make and yummy pasta recipe that I found in an Italian cookbook. I make it especially when I don't feel like spending too much time in the kitchen. It smells like pizza, and tastes like pasta ;) Hope you enjoy it as much as we do here!
