A friend of a friend brought this to a potluck I had years ago, and I got the recipe because it was great to find a recipe that is different than the typical sweet potato casserole. I've never made it but definitely will now that I'm cooking more.
This tastes a lot like sweet potato casserole. I think it is great, but some of my family prefers the recipes with just sweet potatoes. I'd love to hear what you think. This can be prepared a day in advance. To reheat, put puree in a pot and heat on low, stirring occasionally.
I got this recipe from an old friend, who got it off a bag of frozen hash browns. My family raved about it the first time I made it, and there are never any leftovers. It's actually not too fattening if you stick to only 1-2 servings...which is hard to do!
There are a few similar recipes on Zaar to this one, but none exactly the same. This is the one that my mom served when I was a child. The only change I have made is to use broccoli florets instead of frozen spears, which are difficult to cut when serving this up. I've also made this without the broccoli in a smaller dish. My mom always made this recipe with the chicken created when making chicken stock. Feel free to substitute cooked leftover turkey in place of the chicken.
If you add cooked cubed potatoes and vegetables towards the end of cooking, you can make this into a complete meal. I use the leftover sauce with white rice the following day. I saute the uncooked rice with a little olive oil, then add the sauce and some water and simmer in a covered pan until the liquid is absorbed.
I got this recipe from Cooking Light. I made it according to the recipe directions, except it was the first time I cooked with leeks and I think I used a little of the dark green parts. The magazine picture showed it as orange, and mine came out a little oniony, and green, but it was still good. I'd love reviews to see what you think.
No idea where I got this recipe, but it is one of my favorites. Use your favorite vegetables. I tend to use mushrooms, carrots, and zucchini, but anything will work. I'm guessing on number of servings. I'm not crazy about really spicy dishes, so I always leave out the cayenne pepper.
I've always made these on the BBQ grill in foil packets, and the directions work great as is. If you want to make them in the oven, take a look at the reviews for suggestions on modifications & cooking times.
I think I found this in a newspaper. It's one of the easiest recipes I have and takes only a few minutes to make. The plaintains should be somewhat soft with black spots on the skin for these to come out right.
This is a recipe I got from my mother that everyone in the family loves. Batter can be made a few hours in advance, but do not cook until ready to serve as the souffle will fall slightly after removing from the oven and doesn't reheat well (it tastes fine the next day...just isn't as pretty). I'm guessing on the number of servings & prep time.
I don't remember where I got this recipe. I think I cut it out of the local newspaper years ago. It's really easy and I think it could be modified easily to meet your tastes. I often use boil-a-bag rice for easy preparation, and have often used dried parsley (still using 1/2 cup) and it always turns out great.
This was my grandma's noodle kugel and is really easy to make. Leftovers are great cold for lunch the next day! It's a lot lighter than many of the other kugels I saw here, but I'm still looking for ways to make it healthier without changing the taste too much. I've already switched the sour cream & cottage cheese to 'light', and the milk to skim. I'd love suggestions for ways to lighten it even more. UPDATE: In an effort to recreate a sweet topping I tasted on another relative's kugel, I came up with a new optional oatmeal topping. I like it a lot better than the cornflakes or plain.
This was my Great Aunt Lil's recipe, and I've been eating them at family dinners my entire life. All the children in my family eat spinach...and they all start with this recipe. They can also be made a little smaller and served with toothpicks for an appetizer. In my family, this is normally a vegetable side dish. It's a little messy, so make this in advance and reheat when ready to serve.
