DH and I love Sesame Tofyu, but the kids always turn their noses up at the idea. Since I am not a short order cook, I only make one "daily special" for dinner. DS got into the kitchen with me and we modified the recipe. This is what we created.
Sweet potatoes are oh so healthy. The drawback is when people add all the junk. So how could I make something a little more dressed up that plain old baked sweet potatoes, but healthier than a sweet potato pie.
This is what will grace our Thanksgiving Table this year.
Growing up I never would eat heated cereal. My mother would make me toasted grapefruit with cinnamon and sugar so I would have a warm meal in my belly before leaving for school. I hadn't thought about that in years until I came across a similar recipe in Susie Fishbein's Kosher by Design Lightens Up.
I wanted to make Hungry Girls recipe with the same name, but I couldn't find kosher dark chocolate soy nuts. Also, I don't want to ingest the chemicals or fat used in microwave popcorn bags. So I made some substitutions. I like to use Funky Monkey for the freeze dried fruit.
I adopted this recipe from Rita's Roasted Asparagus With Lavender, Lemon and Garlic. http://www.recipezaar.com/Roasted-Asparagus-With-Lavender-Lemon-and-Garlic-155205 I needed to make a couple of changes to accommodate my diet, my kids taste and end with an easy cleanup.
This recipe is from 101cookbooks.com with just a couple of changes to make it pareve and lower in fat. Thanks Heidi for another wonderful recipe. I love the idea of making a broccoli pesto. I can't wait to share it. Last year for Thanksgiving I made Thai Quinoa. It went over well enough with everyone, but my kids, so the leftovers weren't finished. Since my guys LOVE broccoli, this is going to be on the menu this year instead.
We all know that fried chicken isn't healthy, but that doesn't stop me from salivating when I smell it frying it the grocery store's deli. As long as it isn't kosher, I don't think twice, but when it is, it takes all my self control not to buy it and eat it all in the car before I can even get home. Rather than let it destroy my health & my diet, I had to find an alternative. I was inspired by Susie Fishbein.
Last Thanksgiving, none of my guests wanted turkey, so I wanted to come up with a pareve main dish. There were NO leftovers and I get more requests for this recipe throughout the year than anything else, so it will be the main fare this year as well.
I got this recipe from Susie Fishbein's Kosher by Design Lightens up. I made some minor changes to accommodate my low-carb diet, but keeping everyone else in the family happy. By using corn on the cob, it is easy for me to forego the corn, while everyone else doesn't have to miss out.
I have always had a difficult time finding something that I like to eat for breakfast during Pesach. During the year I tend to eat Cliff bars and such when I have to skip a meal, so I was inspired by hellokitty's Extremely Healthy Fiber Packed Zucchini Carrot Cranberry Bars to whip something up. Since I made more than 3 substitutions, I decided to post my version.
Note: The "cake crumbs" below is supposed to be "cake meal".
Trying to find parve alternatives locally where I live can be frustrating. Ordering it online can be cost prohibitive. I want a solution that did not come out of a chemistry lab, doesn't cost more than gold, and doesn't taste parve. I used this with Recipe #118419 and it got rave reviews.
My husband fell in love with me when I told him that the rule in my kitchen is that there is no such thing as too much garlic. This recipe just clinched it! This was the first thing I learned to cook when I moved to Spain. It is the best cheap meal I know.
