Fiddling around in the kitchen, I was looking for a protein rich snack prior to working out. This sandwich was the result and seemed worth posting. If you think it sounds strange consider the delicious and popular appetizer of baked brie in puff pastry and dried fruit. This is a deconstructed and reconstructed version for one. My version used reduced fat ingredients, but you can use the full fat versions if you like.
This is a lower fat alternative to chili. It is nicely seasoned, tastes great on a cold winter day and freezes well. This makes a delicious meal served with cornbread or crusty rolls. As this makes quite a bit, I usually put it into 2-quart containers, cool and freeze. The night before I am going to serve it, I put it in the refrigerator and allow it to defrost. Then heat and enjoy!
Although avocados are high in fat, 3/4 of their fat calories come from monounsaturated fat, which is the type that may help protect against coronary artery disease. They also have 3x as much potassium as a banana. So enjoy with out guilt this healthy recipe from "The Mayo Clinic Williams Sonoma Cookbook."
I just love lasagna! This one is great - it's loaded with vegetables... and cheese! I love the spinach in this dish! I adapted this from a recipe from BH&G Biggest Book of Italian Recipes. I made it as directed in the recipe (in a spingform pan - which looks great when you have company over!) but you can bake it in a 13x9 baking dish.
I love this dish, Depending on how I'm feeling i either use egg or sweet chili sauce to coat the tofu prior to covering with the panko.
My favourite sauces to serve with it are Recipe #179186 and Recipe #24158.
Prep/cooking time does not include draining time!
I went through a veg phase, and this was a staple. I'm back to being an omnivore, but I still make this once a week or so. It's great topped with a little cheese (regular or soy) and a chunk of cornbread.
If you're a Weight Watcher, this is 3 points for a 2 cup serving.
If you're a die-hard carnivore, you can add ground meat, but I think it's much fresher and tastier without.
This is an easy, inexpensive, stress-free recipe even a beginning cook could whip together. Perfect for fall and winter. This dish is usually served hot, but is also very tasty cold, either by itself or mixed in with spring greens and a balsamic or "goddess" dressing. You can easily substitute other root vegetables if you don't have these on hand - Try celery root, baking potatoes, red beets, etc.
