Tasty side dish or vegetarian entree, adapted from 'Eat Your Vegetables'. There are several recipes on Food.com for the Za'atar spice mix, or you can purchase it at spice shops (I bought it at www.savoryspiceshop.com).
Possibly my favorite appetizer that I've posted on Food.com! You can substitute quail eggs to create elegant and impressive cocktail party bites. Adapted from a recipe by Joe Yonan. Cook time is chill time.
Delicious – a veggie pizza that meat eaters will actually love! The Mediterranean flavors and cheeses make it filling without the traditionally overwhelming “healthy” garden taste. If you chop and marinate the vegetables in advance, dinner can be ready in just 15 minutes. Now that’s a blessing from the Greek Gods!
France meets French Polynesia! Exotic coconut, banana and cinnamon island flavors complement the rich creamy, buttery, orange staples of the French countryside. This is an easy breakfast or brunch meal since it's all made the day before (the 12 hours passive cooking time is when it sits in the refrigerator overnight). Serve it directly from the baking dish...no syrup or butter needed!
This is great for potlucks or barbecues - so much more flavorful than regular coleslaw. The original recipe is from Bobby Flay but I changed it a bit. Note: the farther in advance you make this, the better it gets!
Something different! A delicious breakfast or dinner that pleases people who don't like French Toast because it's too sweet. This was served at the bed and breakfast at Youngberg Hill Winery in the Oregon Wine Country.
A nice fitness lunch to keep you going all day! It's tastier than you would think considering the ingredients. Chipotle lovers may prefer Recipe#124740 for the dip or the easiest way is to use prepared dip from the jar. I love Guiltless Gourmet's Spicy Black Bean Dip or Desert Pepper Trading Company's Spicy Black Bean Dip. Based on a recipe from Ellie Krieger's Healthy Appetite, this serves two as an entree or eight as an appetizer.
You won't feel blue when you read the Nutrition Facts! This is a healthier adaptation of Recipe #110317. For the pasta, I use Barilla Plus Multigrain Elbows which have 10 grams of protein and only 2 grams of fat per serving.
From chef Jon Ashton of Celebration, Florida - a friend I met in cooking class. This "htipiti" dip is one of a medley of Mediterranean dips served at Disney World.
It's fantastic with Recipe#219104 - serve with pork cubes and toothpicks.
Soaking overnight makes this the best oatmeal you've ever had! Created for the Ready Set Cook! Contest #10, the ingredients have been updated based on the reviewers' suggestions that it was too sweet, but feel free to increase the sugar and syrup to 1/2 cup each if you prefer a cake-like sweetness. This saves wonderfully in the refrigerator and can be cut in "oatmeal-to-go" pieces after chilling.
