I am fortunate to work at a place where the manager of the cafeteria is a Moroccan native. Our mutual love of food has resulted in endless exchange of recipes, spices and samplings. (Indeed, some of the items now served in the cafeteria are recipes from this site.) One one occasion, I was lucky enough to be able to share in the lunch he prepared for the staff. I love eggs and his were just amazing. This recipe from World Vegetarian seems like a close approximate - though I know his version included a generous bit of cumin and cilantro. I'm posting the original here and will begin to tinker. Once perfected, I'll post that version as a second recipe. Will experiment to see if this works as well with canned tomatoes.
Guilt-free snack! These chips are made without any fat. For attractive circular chips, look for sweet potatoes that are round rather than long. I think these are even yummier than regular potato chips...
I stole this from a friend who is doing weight watchers. I didn't find much veggie inspiration in her books but this looked great. She told me I have to add this sentence in "3 weight watchers POINTS values per serving" whatever that means...
I like this recipe on a Sunday morning, it makes a good vegetarian alternative to a full english breakfast. It's loosely based on one of my grandmothers recipes and should ideally be served with fresh crusty bread to soak up the mushroom and milk juices.
Great meal, easy to make, Low GI, vegan keeps well (tastes better the next day)Extra can be frozen for upto one month.
quite often I forget to put in the lemon juice and herbs and it still tastes great!
This is from a great old TV programme called "food and drink" sadly it is no more but I have kept this recipe on a piece of paper for years although I know it by heart the cat has just shredded the original so it is now here where she can't get it ;)
"Borrowed" this from a friends cookbook. Its yummy and quick and gives you your five a day in one bowl! I was told to add the folllowing information when I posted it. "3 weightwatchers POINTS values per serving
This is a very unusual and delicious snack. I'm eating these and trying to convince myself they are crisps (chips). Dairy free, Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Low fat, Low GI, Low sugar, Wheat Free this comes from the food coach. It keeps for up to two weeks in a sealed box and I like to crush it and sprinkle on meals as a garnish.
Scrambled eggs on toast was one of my favourite breakfasts but it needed some tweaking to make it low fat and low GI. I have stated granary bread in the recipe I usually use Bergen linseed bread or High fibre seeded bagels (1/2 only) but Rye bread works very well too. The eggs are creamy and moist without having lots of butter in or being undercooked.
If you want a really filling, low GI meal suitable for vegetarians, then you will love this baked sweet potato stuffed with chickpeas. From the GIdiet.org. This keeps well in the fridge and reheats wonderfully for posh beans on toast
