In this cookbook you'll find recipes with milk that can be replaced with soy milk or other non-dairy milk; butter, that can be replaced with butter flavored spreads; and chicken broth that can be replaced with vegetable broth. There are also some that use eggs, which are easily substituted in baking. Enjoy!
Cool blue grown-up slush to be served as a palate cleanser between formal dinner courses. Came from a magazine article years ago. Great for dinner parties as it is make-ahead. Prep time doesn't include freezing time.
In Mexico City, this drink (shot) is simply known as "muppet", I have no idea why but it's served in bars and clubs all over the city. The amount of tequila will depend in the size of your shot glass, the shot has to be half tequila, half 7 up.
A sweet salad traditionally served in Mexico for Christmas or New Year's Eve dinner as one of many desserts. Kids love it. Any apple works fine, but I prefer crunchy apples that aren't too sweet or tart such as Gala or Golden Delicious.
Sweet coffee drink made with cajeta, which is a caramel type sauce either made with goat's or cow's milk. You can find it in well-stocked supermarkets or in Mexican stores. Cajeta is delicious as a spread on toast or cookies and as a topping for ice cream.
These are so good and moist. Make sure that you squeeze all the juice from the onion so that the patties don't fall apart. These are served with drained yogurt, which can be drained on a paper towel-lined colander for a few hours to overnight. The longer it sits, the drier the texture. Cooking time does not include the time for draining the yogurt. Recipe courtesy of Martha Stewart, with a few adaptations. **NOTE** do not use the food processor to grate the carrots, it makes them juicier and the patties will fall apart.
These potatoes have a rich, creamy cheesy stuffing. Cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack cheese can be substituted for the manchego. Cooking time includes the time for cooking the potatoes. Serving size is one potato half per person.
This is a cake that I made to use up some leftover applesauce. It is low fat and has no oil or butter, it uses only one egg, and sugar-free sweetened condensed milk and applesauce and has the healthy addition of oats. It comes out so moist. It's great the next day for a breakfast treat.
This traditional Greek dish is similar to falafel, but with less spice and flavored with cheese and is usually served as an appetizer. They are very easy to make with dry chickpeas, but canned may be substituted. Use a cheese grater to mash the tomato. Servings are approximate. Time needed for soaking the chickpeas not included. Found online and posted for ZWT 6, Greece.
