Middle Eastern take on a classic American dish... the hot dog! Serve rolled up in a pita with your favorite Middle eastern sauce - I suggest tzatziki, but any condiment will do. A tahini dressing would probably also work well. Rice or couscous or an Israeli salad would make a fine side dish.
The frozen blueberries give this smoothie a little icy thickness and really chill it down. In addition, blueberries are very healthy: they are high in antioxidants and vitamin C. There also have been studies indicating that blueberries slow the aging process of the brain! Simple, delicious, and healthy!
My boyfriend and I put this together one night for dinner using leftovers. We didn't have pizza sauce, so we decided to use salsa with some tomato paste (salsa alone is too watery). If you like a thicker pizza sauce, use more tomato paste and less salsa. While we were making it, I was thinking that the flavors were probably going to come together really well even though it was thrown together randomly. It was delicious! Great for a busy weeknight!
I've recently discovered tahini and absolutely love it! In this healther adaptation of tuna salad, tahini replaces mayonnaise as the emulsifier and adds unique flavor along with the Middle Eastern spices. I like to add apples to my tuna salad for a contrasting sweet, tart flavor.
LOVE foil pack recipes...I use them when I go camping for a weekend trip. Really, any fish would probably work well, but I have never tried any other ones. The sauce for this foil pack is from Fiona Haynes' About.com Low Fat Blog. I added some veggies to make it a a complete meal.
My mom has been making this simple and delicious dessert for years. You can easily make this for other holidays by using different colored gelatins (e.g. try black cherry and orange for Halloween).
IMPORTANT: Make sure that the bottom two layers are chilled long enough to become firm and that the top layer is cool before pouring in step 4 or the top layer will go under the cream cheese layer and not make the pretty layered dessert that you want.
Well, I tagged toni gifford's Recipe #106966 in Please Review My Recipe, and I didn't see anything that inspired me for filling...sooooo I modified my Recipe #211482 a bit to create this delectable filling :) mmmmm it's creamy and delicious and (somewhat) healthy?? The French would not approve.
My mother brought a bunch of grapefruits last weekend, and, honestly, I'm not a big fan of grapefruit unless it's loaded with sugar. I scoured the internet and my cookbooks for ideas of how to incorporate grapefruit into a main dish and came up with this recipe. You can sub your favorite sweet and sour sauce.
This minestrone is so healthy and delicious. It's on the thicker side. You can add water if you like a more liquidy soup. My boyfriend and I dined on this about 3 more times in the week...On the 3rd night, he said to me, "When you suggested soup again, I was thinking 'eh, okay', but when I started eating it, I thought 'mmmm this is still really good.'"
I concocted this hummus the other day from a combination of garlic hummus recipes here on Zaar. Since I found it kinda bland, I added a few more spices and the vegetables. I used about a 1/2 cup of vegetables in total. You can really use any combination of vegetables that you want: red pepper, red onion, and celery would also be good!
This is a yummy spicy stew, popular in Western Africa, particularly Senegal, Gambia, Mali and the Ivory Coast. Traditionally, it's made with black-eyed peas, but you can sub stew meat (usually chicken or beef) if you like! I was a little bit uncertain about the peanut butter, but it balanced the spiciness really well and gave the stew a creamy texture.
This is a good slimmed down version of Olive Garden's Seafood Portofino copycat. It doesn't come out quite as buttery flavored, but it is still super creamy and flavorful. If you like, add some other veggies to this sauce. I think that broccoli and peas are both great with this!
