    A delicious yet low-fat twice-baked potato side dish with a blend of classic Middle Eastern flavours: chickpeas, cumin and coriander. Serve with roasts or with your favourite Middle Eastern main course dish. Adapted from "Practical Cookery: low fat". These potatoes could also be served on their own as a light vegetarian meal. In view of the comments by reviewers about the potatoes being a bit dry, I have added a tablespoon of tahini. I have also added some garlic. I'm not sure how the recipe escaped having garlic in it when I first posted it!

    Recipe #120297

    Most kids love 2-minute noodles and corn fritters so in this recipe, adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Recipes website, the two have been combined to make yummy kid-friendly pancakes. If you want to sneak in some different vegetables, you could probably get away with this the second or third time you make these! For an adult version, perhaps add bacon, garlic, and serve with sour cream and lemon wedges.

    Recipe #320442

    Use only the best quality ingredients and you'll have the most delicious and refreshing dessert imaginable. And it takes only moments to make! Affogato is a typically Italian way to enjoy ice cream — it's literally 'drowned' in espresso or another liquid topping. This version of Affogato Mocha appeared in the May 2005 issue of Bon Appétit

    Recipe #124855

    Ready to try a new pesto recipe? Looking for a culinary adventure? This quick to prepare and easy recipe is from the uktv FOOD website. I ran into difficulties in posting it recipe, because of the 2 "handfuls" listed in the ingredients as the required number of peanuts! I have converted this to 1/2 cup, so if you prefer to add "2 handfuls", go for it!. Then - in view of the options provided - I puzzled over what cuisine to list it under. The closest I could get was to classify it as Iranian/Persian, an approximation at best! So if precision is essential to you, this recipe is probably NOT for you, but if you're prepared to try something new, you might like to try it!

    Recipe #327601

    A fabulously healthy juice drink from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. Commenting on aloe vera, she says that it "has been described as a natural healer because it contains many essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes" and she suggests giving youself "a dose whenever you feel low". From the instructions, this is clearly intended to be made using a juicer, but you could use a blender. You would then get the whole of the cucumber and apple, not just the juice. If doing this, obviously remove the apple core!

    Recipe #146074

    Being an excellent source of protein, the nuts and seeds in this shake make it a nourishing breakfast that will help you re-charge so that you are ready to meet the demands of the day ahead. Soaking the nuts and seeds overnight increases their digestibility and therefore the healthfulness of this shake. Just drain off the water the nuts have soaked in overnight before making your shake with clean water and the other ingredients. This shake will obviously be more nutritious if you use organic nuts, seeds and fruits. Adapted from a recipe on Dr Joseph Mercola’s website, together advice from my naturopath.

    Recipe #118989

    Described on the website where I found it as a Rajasthani main course potato dish, Aloo Ka Saag is probably what most of us would classify as a side dish. I’ve not made this recipe as I’ve only just found it and I’m posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. I’ve posted the ingredients exactly as listed in the recipe on http://www.sanjeevkapoor.com/FreeSection/result.asp?passid=4522. Adjust the spiciness to suit your taste preferences. In what I’ve set out as step three, the recipe said “cook for some time”, so it would be helpful if you could mention in reviews just how long you cooked it for at this point. Since the potatoes are already cooked, my guess is that “some time” would not in fact be longer than 10 minutes. For this reason, my cooking time below is a guesstimate. The Zaar Kitchen Dictionary suggests that garlic powder or onion powder can be used as a substitute for asafetida powder.

    Recipe #137088

    I just love the sound of the blend of garlic, cumin and lime with the cilantro in this Cilantro Cream Sauce recipe. When I came across it on the Allrecipes website and read some of the hundred or so rave reviews that had been written, I checked the Zaar recipes, which all sounded quite different again from this one and, I thought, well there are probably some other Zaar members who would also like to try this recipe. Being timid around spicy flavours, I’ll be leaving those out – whereas some chefs will I know be increasing their heat – but the rest of the flavour combinations sound really tempting. I was also struck by the versatility offered by this recipe, something that is also true of the other Zaar recipes for Cilantro Sauce, some of which I’ve saved and will also be trying. I particularly liked the sound of Merlot’s Hazelnut & Cilantro Pasta Sauce #31361. Amy’s Cilantro Cream Sauce can be used as a dip, as a sauce for grilled fish, chicken or steamed vegetables, as a salad dressing, folded through mashed potatoes or as a pasta sauce. Since I haven’t yet made this, I’ve posted it exactly as I found it on the Allrecipes website. Thank you, Amy. Some reviewers had made it with low fat cheese and cream with excellent results, some added chopped green onions and some used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I’ll be looking for an alternative to the tomatillo salsa. Any suggestions are most welcome. I’ve estimated the preparation time to be 5-10 minutes.

    Recipe #120856

    Greek chef and restaurateur Theodore Kyriakou (widely considered to be the finest Greek chef in Britain) says of this recipe: "This dish is best made with the strongly flavoured salted anchovy fillets (be sure to rinse them well), but the anchovies from tins or jars will do as well. You can either use a food processor or pound everything with a pestle and mortar. This paste will keep for several weeks in the fridge and is served on biscuits or bread." This recipe is from his book ‘real greek food’, which he co-authored with food writer Charles Campion. It's obviously a recipe for those who love anchovies! I'm posting it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #142233

    There are heaps of delicious-sounding Macaroni Cheese recipes on Zaar. Unfortunately, many are phenomenonally high in all the things many of us are probably trying NOT to eat. This is a low GI recipe, which I am posting in response to Vina's query about low GI foods in a Forum. The recipe is from Annette Sym's website, where you will find other recipes and a lot more information about GI. Annette Sym provides nutritional information for all her recipes, and alternative ingredients, so that after using a few of her recipes the basic GI principles are easily understood.

    Recipe #116014

    A quick and easy, really low fat chicken dish that you can have from fridge to table in no more than 20 minutes. Another of Annette Sym's recipes.

    Recipe #118865

    A great detoxing drink adapted from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. She warns "watch out for the beetroot moustache"!

    Recipe #146939

    Adapted from a recipe I found on the UKTV FOOD website. This is a great lunch box alternative to sandwiches, and one that children could easily make for themselves. Except perhaps mixing the yoghurt with the cinnamon and honey. Or you could enjoy this as light meal or as a side-salad. I'd suggest Granny Smiths or Fuji apples. For some reason, Zaar wouldn't allow me to include this information in the ingredients. I left intact - from the original recipe - the virtuous low fat natural yogurt alternative but if you’re more interested in flavour than in being totally virtuous, especially if you've never tried it, use divinely creamy Greek yoghurt and don't forget the cinnamon and honey! Anyway, if you were totally virtuous, you undoubtedly wouldn’t be eating cheese at all!

    Recipe #321213

    A refreshing super low-fat yoghurt apple mint salsa from the Simply Great Meals website. A tasting refreshing accompaniment to fish cakes, potato cakes, latkes etc. When making this, I used Greek yoghurt and a tangy Granny Smith apple. Those with a sweeter tooth, and not liking so much tang, might want to omit the or reduce the lemon juice and lemon zest, and perhaps add some sugar or honey. Personally, I like it just as it is. Be guided by your taste buds! I made this first to serve with Nasseh's delicious Spiced Potato Cakes Recipe #314462.

    Recipe #320813

    Enjoy Asian flavours but wanting a low cost meal? Then this recipe - which uses slow-cooking to get lots of flavour from some of the cheaper cuts of beef - may be just what you're looking for. Michelle Southan's recipe for Asian Beef and Vegetable Casserole is from the August 2007 issue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine. Michelle suggests that you "put away your wok and get ready for aromatic slow-cooked beef, Asian style". Some conversions which may be useful in making this recipe: 90g = 3oz; 300g = approx. 91/2oz; 1.5 kg = 3lbs; 4cm = 11/2"; 125ml = 4 fluid ounces; 500ml = 16 fluid ounces.

    Recipe #346250

    Asian Pork Mini Meatloaves made in a muffin pan and served with noodle salad. Adapted from a recipe by Liz Macri in the February 2008 issue of the Australian magazine 'Super Food Ideas'. Conversions: 500g = 16oz. so 600g is about 31/2 oz over the pound weight. 225g = approximately 71/2 oz.; 250g = 8oz..

    Recipe #346579

    This recipe - by Rodney Dunn - is from the March 2001 issue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine. I have made these patties - served as a first course - with the chillis for guests who like hot and spicy food (and they've loved them) and for myself minus the chillis! Some useful conversions: 350g = a tad more than 11oz.; 50g = approximately 13/4oz.

    Recipe #346429

    Quiche is always so versatile - an easy-to-prepare dinner, lunch or snack; and individual quiches are great for take-to-work lunches or for picnics or potlucks. Made with the canned vegetables, this can be made very quickly but it can, of course, also be made with fresh or frozen vegetables. If you are using frozen vegetables, steam them briefly and make sure that all excess liquid has been drained off - or saved for making soup, such as my Recipe #135453. I've adapted this recipe from one I found on the Simply Great Meals website. Conversions: 425g = approximately 131/2 ounces; 125g = 4 ounces.

    Recipe #386669

    A yummy frittata. When making this, I've used a herb grinder which has in it a wonderful combination of rosemary and sage, so if you like sage, you may want to add a bit of sage as well. Alternatively, you could add other herbs such as oregano, marjoram or thyme. Obviously you may also use more or less cloves of garlic - depending on your taste preferences.

    Recipe #330036

    An asparagus and almond soup, made with only three main ingredients, which can be served chilled in the summer. Recipes really don't come much simpler than this, and with such recipes it is even more essential than usual to use only the freshest and best quality ingredients you can find. I have adapted this recipe from one I found on an English website, and I am posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. For the stock, I'd recommend either JKC’s Recipe #124515 or my Recipe #135453.
