Ready for a change? This stew is full of protein with lentils, split peas, beans and chicken. If you are wanting something unique and colorful without sacrificing flavor, this is it. Hearty, simple and plain good.
I found this recipe on a website - cant remember where, though! Tastes a bit like a trail mix. The wet mixture, coconut, oat bran and granola is enough to give you a fantastic base recipe then add nuts or dried fruit or seeds to your taste. Use raw for all seeds and nuts. You can even use ground flax seeds in place of whole ones and it still tastes great.
Dairy free potato leek soup with a special twist. This is full of flavor and with not much hand chopping. Quick to make, nutritious and filling. If you have beef bones to make your own stock, it really comes out with a full flavor. Adjust salt to taste. There is no pureeing in this soup, rather finer chopping helps it to be on the "creamier" side.
This is a nice change from the typical burger or parmesan topped spaghetti sauce. Easy, tasty and the kids like it! I also like that it is a one dish meal. You can use any small pasta in place of the wheat. I use home canned tomato puree but you can replace that with two 28 ounce cans of tomato sauce and 2 cups of water. Serve on top or on the side with frozen corn that is steamed.
This is a bread that bakes with a hard crust on the outside and soft flavorful bread inside. For me, the crust comes out a bit dark but it might just be my oven. The flavor is superb though! To decrease rising time, I set up a space heater on my granite counters to warm the counters and increase the air temperature near the dough.I have taken 1/4 of the ingredients and made it successfully in the bread machine, too!
Moist and flavorful these can be made with oat or wheat bran depending on what you have. You can put your choice of nuts (my fav is walnuts) or dried fruit and vary the amount of mashed banana and they still come out great. Since I started using this recipe 5 years ago, I have kept these muffins on hand in our freezer. I save my brown bananas, freeze them and when I get a good amount puree them in my cuisinart so I can triple the batch of muffins. You can also make these as regular size muffins. The batch would make 12 muffins and bake time would decrease to 15 minutes or so.
