Vegetarian sushi. It's heart healthy, fun to make and tasty too! For a little extra flavor, use marinated baked tofu instead of plain. Either way, have a little soy sauce on hand for dipping... or indulge with tasty plum sauce or hoisin sauce... it's up to you!
Yummy shrimp maki! Serve with low sodium soy sauce for a heart healthy treat or indulge in your favorite dipping sauce. For a vegetarian version, omit the shrimp and add extra slices of carrot and avocado. Makes 6 servings as a main course or 48 appetizers.
Tofu is a wonderful food that picks up flavors very well. In this case, the curry sauce is strong and bakes into the tofu which yields not only great flavor but also a nice chewy texture. Serve with sauteed spinach and basmati rice for a balanced meal. Leftovers can be used as sandwich filling with a little chutney.
A nice sweet treat with a cup of tea! Drop them free-form onto a baking sheet for "craggy" biscuits or make them a little more shapely by using your hands or a small ice cream scoop. Either way, they taste great.
Move over lemon zinger... this brew is quite a stinger! Serve this on the rocks on a summer day or modify the recipe and serve it piping hot on an autumn evening with a slice of gingerbread or pumpkin pie. This can also be adapted into a tea to ease a queasy stomach by omitting the lemon and simply using the brewed ginger tea, hot or cold, to sip. Ginger is renowned for it's ability to calm stomach sickness.
Chimichurri is a potent, hot and garlicky South American sauce that is usually served with grilled meats. Try it here with grilled tofu for a fiesty vegetarian dish that is sure to please. Make extra sauce and store it in the fridge for up to a month in an airtight container. It is great marinade for chicken, pairs nicely with any grilled meat and works well as a topping for baked fish.
A simple pasta dish made with fresh ingredients. Herbs that work well with this dish are basil, tarragon, marjoram, oregano, parsley, dill, thyme, chives, cilantro, chervil and mint. I like to go heavy on the basil(about a cup) and then combine one or two other herbs.
Inspired after cooking up Evie's "Potato,Feta and Parsley Cakes" (#17152), I decided to play around with the potato-cake idea and came up with this recipe. This is a tasty and nutritious vegetarian entree. Try it with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and add a crisp green salad on the side. *Cook time includes time needed to cool potato mixture.
This is our favorite chicken dish! There is something about the cream sherry marinade that makes this chicken absolutely fabulous. The chicken develops a very complex flavor and the sauce is wonderfully tasty. The sauce is lovely made with either the cream or the low fat milk/water option. Since we don't usually have heavy cream onhand, the lowfat option was born and I am very happy with the result. Hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do.
This fragrant indulgence first touched my lips on Valentines Day several years ago --- it is an incredible treat for the senses. Trust me on this one... you can't go wrong with warm rich chocolate, kissed with vanilla, cool ice cream and juicy red berries!
This soup gets a standing ovation in my kitchen for packing a nutritious bunch of veggies and pasta into a hearty tomato soup base. It's a crowd pleaser and is wonderful on a cool autumn night or as a warming winter meal with a thick piece of bread.
