From a May 2001 Cooking Light article on hiding soy in desserts. My whole family loved this creamy dessert with lots of crushed oreos, even my husband who hates tofu. They had no idea it contained soy and I'm sure not telling!
Dry vegetable broth mix used to be hard to find. While it's pretty common now, thought I'd post this recipe since I just submitted another that called for it. Easy to stir together with spices you are likely to have on hand. From Lean and Luscious and Meatless by Bobbie Hinman and Millie Snyder. They say you can add dried vegetable flakes for a real flavor bonus.
Broccoli is stir-fried with onions, mushrooms and walnuts and topped with cheese. So good, I could and have eaten only this for dinner. Also very attractive. From Lean and Luscious and Meatless by Bobbie Hinman and Millie Snyder.
This is probably my favorite cake, frosted with whipped cream and almond brittle. The recipe is from Flavors, a San Antonio Junior League cookbook, and is served at their Bright Shawl Tearoom. I think Old San Francisco Steak House used to serve a similar crunch cake. Making the cake is not difficult but takes some time. In a pinch, you could use an angel food cake and put together as directed.
Vegetarian, colorful and made in a slow cooker. Very easy, even uses raw rice. Use all green or red peppers if you like. I use frozen corn instead of canned. Found the recipe on the internet, credited to Martin James in Copenhagen, Denmark.
A very simple recipe that's comforting when the weather is cold and that even the young kids in my family will eat. I found the recipe on the internet but I believe it originally came from Taste of Home. It makes a lot, I'm guessing on the number of servings!
This recipe is served at Wunsche Bros. Cafe in Old Town Spring and was printed in Texas Ties, a Junior League cookbook of North Harris County. If you go to Wunsche Bros., they serve beer bread alongside. Yum! I sometimes substitute rum extract for the liquor. Cooking time is chilling time of the Rum Raisin Sauce.
A superfast and healthy recipe, one of the greatest hits from the Sept 2004 issue of Cooking Light. The flavors are very mild and the dish is a good way to add some tofu to your diet. I've also made this with lean boneless pork or chicken. I think instant rice is an abomination so I take a little extra time to make the real thing.
These are nice and convenient to make when roasting a chicken or pot roast in the oven. I usually make it with baby carrots but sliced carrots may also be used instead of strips. Seasoning is very simple, which I'll often change depending on the meal.
Found this recipe in a Cooking Light article on healthier school cafeteria food. Attractive to kids and adults while not as sweet as other fruit dips. Recipe suggests serving with fresh strawberries, seedless green grapes, tangerine sections, unpeeled apple chunks and unsweetened pineapple chunks.
