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.
I was intrigued when I saw this recipe from Diane Sanfilippo...pancakes without flour? I kept flour within reach when I made them - just in case the batter didn't stick together, but it did, and we actually preferred these to regular pancakes. They are moister, like pumpkin pie!
During the rainy season (May to October) in Sikkim, the lush Himalayan hills are filled with wild mushrooms, which are gathered for home use. This particular preparation was a favorite of the chogyal, the last king of Sikkim, according to his cook, Puchung Lepcha. Adapted from "Indian & Chinese Cooking from the Himalayan Rim," by Copeland Marks.
Absolutely delicious and you can make this fresh dressing in minutes. The walnut oil may seem expensive but compare to what you are paying for bottled dressing that contains chemicals! From La Tourangelle.
PIMENTOS and YELLOW SPLIT PEAS in a creamy sauce over TORTELLINI make for a filling, protein-rich vegetarian dinner. The mozzarella complements the pimentos, which in nature are bright red and appropriately shaped like a heart...just perfect for a Pretty Young Thing. The King of Pop was a vegetarian most of his life and would have found inspiration in this colorful pasta dish.
Sugar, spice and everything nice, including vitamins A, B6, C and Beta-Carotene.The banana doesn't have to be frozen, but it's a quick way to make a cold smoothie without dealing with ice. Just peel the banana and wrap it in foil, then put in the freezer overnight.
This is posted in tribute to Bob Petrillose, its creator who passed away last month. I had the honor of eating way too many of these pizza subs during my college days. Rumor has it that a student who worked in the truck sold the idea to Stouffer's and was the origin of the French Bread Pizza.

The parsnips add a creamy sweetness that complements the flavor of the split peas. If parsnips are unavailable, use carrots instead. Because the peas have a tendency to settle on the bottom of the pot, a quick stir midway through the cooking process is helpful. The Liquid Smoke adds a "bacony" flavor to the soup and is available in most supermarkets. While this is intended to be vegetarian, from Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, I also made this with a ham bone instead of the liquid smoke and was delicious.
Israeli or pearl couscous makes this the best tomato soup you've had - it soaks up the soup and is delicious, without any butter or cream! Israeli couscous is found in most grocery stores, but orzo may be substituted. Adapted from Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker.
