Taken and adapted from Jeanne Lemlin's "Quick Vegetarian Pleasures" -- a superb cookbook that should be in every kitchen! This salad is so much more yummy than you might think from the list of in gredients ....
The good folk at Williams-Sonoma were handing out samples of these a few weeks back. They were (of course) just scrumptious. These were made with Muirhead Pumpkin Pecan Butter (sold at W-S, needless to say), but I would imagine that any good pumpkin butter would do just fine.
This is the recipe for "Mean Green" juice used in the documentary "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead." I was a little nervous about trying it -- I couldn't imagine that a juice with kale in it would be palatable -- but it turned out to be delicious! That film has really gotten us into juicing.
"A juicy turkey burger with a hint of red bell peppers, garlic and onions, topped with with fresh spinach, ripe red tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts and drizzled with a special avocado-artichoke dressing. Served on two slices of toasted sourdough bread, it's a burger any Californian could groove on. And that ain't no jive!" (Submitted for the ZWT3 "Build-A-Burger" challenge by the Jivin' Jelly Rollers.)
Had this last night at a friend's house, and it was FABULOUS. My friend kept saying, "This won't be the most delicious dinner you've ever had, but it's really healthy!" But she was wrong -- it was delicious. If you want to lighten the recipe, use cooking spray instead of oil, and use water chestnuts instead of almonds.
A friend just gave me this recipe and I made it up as an alternative for our workday morning coffee. Although it's recommended for iced coffee, it works equally well for hot coffee -- and it's EXTREMELY easy to put together in the morning, since you don't have to fuss with equipment or with cleaning. My husband's view (he's the coffee drinker in the family) was that it made very good hot coffee, but GREAT iced coffee.
This is as close to nonfat as chocolate frozen yogurt can get. If you're on Weight Watchers (or any other weight-management program) and you're dying for chocolate, this is a reasonable choice. And it's yummy!
I found this yesterday at about.com, and am very surprised there's nothing like it on Recipezaar (at least, I can't find it). We served this over nonfat yogurt cheese, but it would be equally delicious over just about anything. Cooking time is refrigeration time.
With all the variants of apricot chicken that appear on Recipezaar, this one doesn't seem to have been posted yet ... I got this from "Your Family Will Love It!", put out by Prevention magazine some time in the mid-1990s. It's my go-to recipe when my oven isn't free (and we don't have access to a grill). Couldn't be easier, and I always have the ingredients in the house. One 4-ounce portion is 4 WW points.
