Garbanzo Bean Bread (1 1/2 lb.) - 2 Points

Recipe By :George Burnett
Serving Size : 17 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Breads-Bread Machine Pamela S.


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup water -- (8 ounces) from
cooking the dried garbanzo beans -- or from canned beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon molasses -- unsulfured
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon lecithin -- liquid, * see note
1 cup (9 ounces) cooked garbanzo beans -- drained, slightly
mashed
3 cups (14 ounces) whole wheat flour
2 tablespoon wheat gluten
2 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin seed
2 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

You may know garbanzo beans as chick-peas. Their starch contributes to
a light, soft loaf with good keeping qualities, and the beans provide a
mildly nutty flavor. Use canned beans, which are already cooked and only
need a slight mash, or soak 1/2 cup dried beans overnight in enough water
to cover by 2 inches. Drain well. Cook the soaked beans in simmering
water (that has first come to a boil) for about 2 hours, or until tender.
Reserve and cool the cooking liquid for the bread. You may use canned
beans, reserving the canning liquid.

Elite Bread

1. Put all the ingredients in the inner pan in the order listed, or in the
reverse order if the manual for your machine specifies dry ingredients first
and liquids last. Select Basic Wheat cycle, Light setting (or the equivalent
setting for your machine). Push Start.

Pamela's Note: The book states that lecithin granules can be interchanged
with the liquid lecithin in equal amounts (page 52).

I used a West Bend slicing guide which gives 17 slice per loaf. I've found
Red Star yeast to give the most rise.

Roasted Balsamic Beet Brushetta

Recipe By : Vegetarian Times, December 1998, page 22
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Vegetables Appetizers

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
plus extra for garnish
6 medium beets with greens
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic -- minced
1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
1 pinch cayenne -- (optional)
Salt -- to taste
freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
1 small red onion -- thinly sliced
1 baguette
cut on the diagonal into 1-inch slices
1 tablespoon light brown sugar -- up to 2
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar -- up to 2

6 TO 8 SERVINGS LACTO

This appetizer showcases the earthy, sweet flavor and vibrant color of
roasted beets.

In small bowl, combine yogurt, mint and chives. Cover and refrigerate.
Preheat oven to 400 F.

Cut beet greens off beets and set aside. Thoroughly scrub beets; cut off
both ends. In large bowl, combine oil, garlic, rosemary, cayenne, salt and
pepper. Place beets in bowl and mix to lightly coat. Place beets on
baking sheet (reserve marinade) and bake, tossing occasionally, until
tender, 45 to 55 minutes.

While beets are roasting, wash and remove stems from greens and chop. In
heavy-bottomed saute pan, heat reserved marinade. Add onion and saute
until soft, about 6 minutes. Add greens and cook until greens are
thoroughly wilted, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt
and pepper. Place bread slices on baking sheet and toast on both sides,
about 3 minutes. When beets have cooled (you may peel them if desired),
cur in half and thinly slice. Place in medium bowl and add brown sugar and
vinegar. Toss and season.

To serve, place a generous amount of beet greens on top of toasted bread.
Top with beets and garnish with yogurt-herb dressing and a sprinkle of chives.

Herbed Olive Spirals - 1 Point

Recipe By :Better Home & Gardens
Serving Size : 48 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Appetizers

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
16 ounces package hot roll mix
1/3 cup dried tomatoes
6 ounces cream cheese -- softened
1/3 cup finely chopped pitted ripe olives
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 egg yolk -- slightly beaten
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano or thyme, crushed -- optional
1 egg -- slightly beaten
1 tablespoon water

1. Prepare the hot roll mix according to package directions. After kneading, divide the dough into two portions; cover and let rest 5 minutes. Grease a large baking sheet; set aside.

2. For Filling, drain tomatoes, reserving oil. Chop the tomatoes. Combine tomatoes, cream cheese, olives, green onions, egg yolk, pepper, and, if desired, oregano or thyme in a mixing bowl. Stir in about 1 tablespoon reserved tomato oil, if necessary, to make a filling that is easy to spread.

3. Turn dough portions out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll each portion to a 14x11-inch rectangle. Spread half of the filling atop each rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges (filling amount will seem generous). Roll up dough tightly from long sides. Seal seams. Place loaves on the prepared baking sheet with seams down. Cover and let dough rise till nearly double(about 30 to 40 minutes).

4. Make three or four diagonal cuts about 1/4 inch deep in loaf tops, using a sharp knife. Combine the egg and water; brush onto loaves. Bake in a 375 degree F oven about 25 minutes or till golden. Carefully remove loaves from baking sheet and cool on wire racks. Serve warm or at room temperature. Slice with a serrated knife. Makes 2 loaves (48 slices).

* You could use fat-free cream cheese to cut the fat, but it would still be 1 point per serving.
