Default Falafel

Had this for dinner the other night. It is good in a whole-wheat pita with some lettuce, tomato, onion, and some hot sauce.

Enjoy
Tobey

Falafel

6 Servings

4 cups cooked garbanzo beans
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup onions, minced
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
dash cayenne
1/3 cup whole wheat flour

Rinse the garbanzos and drain them well. If they were canned, just drain them.
Combine all ingredients (except flour) in a food processor or a medium sized bowl and process or mash until batter is uniform.
Add flour and stir/process until thoroughly combined. The batter can be stored in the refrigerator in a tightly covered container for days.
Preheat oven to 400F. Get a baking pan, cookie sheet, pie tin--whatever.
Spray it with non-stick spray for best results (weight watchers) and form the batter with a spoon into a flattened ball. It should not be much bigger than your spoon. For a felafel in a small pita bread, make 2-3 felafel patties.
For a larger one, 4-5 will do.
Bake them for about 20-25 minutes. You might flip them over halfway through baking. They're finished when they are golden brown.

I wish you were cooking at my house. I like the types of things you make. I copied your falafel recipe and have my garbonzos soaking tonight. Do you have your recipe for rice stuffed peppers in an easy place that you could copy and paste into this thread? I keep thinking about that and I have some beautiful peppers right now.

Keep up the good work. Have you ever looked at Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone? It is a great cookbook.

I haven't read that cookbook - I will have to chech it out though.

Here is my favourite stuffed pepper recipe. It may look familiar to some as I posted it on a different thread about a month and half ago.

Sorry it doesn't have the nutrional value listed.

Tobey

Stuffed Roasted Red Peppers

makes 2 servings

2 large firm red peppers
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 large clove of garlic, chopped
1/3 cup long-grain rice
1 tsp ground cummin
2/3 cup water
1/2 tsp dried dill
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/3 cup FF or LF Feta cheese (optional)

Preheat broiler. Place peppers on a sheet pan and broil about 8 inches from the heat source, turning as they blister to roast on all sides. This should take 20 - 25 minutes. Remove and cool.

While peppers are roasting, cook onions with some cooking spray in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat until wilted. Add the garlic and stir for a minute. Add the rice and cumin and toss to combine in skillet. Pour in water and season with salt. Cover the skillet, lower heat, and cook rice until tender (if you are not sure of the timing - refer to the instructions on the box/bag of rice). All of the liquid should be absorbed. Remove from heat, mix in dill, parsley, and Feta (if using) and season to taste with salt and pepper (Note: if you are using Feta you may want to pass on the salt).

When peppers have cooled slightly, cut off their stems. Peel way their papper skins carefully so as not to tear the underlying flesh (this can be messy - so I normally get hubby to help here ) and reserve all their juices. Slit them once vertically and scrape out their seed with a spoon.

Preheat oven to 375F. Spray an ovenproof glass baking dish with cooking spray. Divide the rice mixture between the the peppers and fold close (if you can - I normally find they are so full that I just leave them lying flat - this is okay). Place side by side in the baking dish, seam side up (if you get them to close!) and pour the reserved juice over them. Cover dish loosely with aluminum foil and bake for about 20 - 30 minutes. Remove and cool slightly.

Default Fat Free Pumpkin Pie Bread

If you like pumpkin pie, you love this bread. It is fat free and free of any animal product but comes out very moist. Also as you can see from the nutrional breakdown, it is a great source of vitamin A.

If you are having it as a snack or dessert, cut the loaf into 16 pieces for about 80 calories/slice. However, if you have it as a meal (i.e. breakfast with a glass of skim milk) cut into 8 pieces. It is a filling 160 calories.

Enjoy
Tobey

Pumpkin Pie Bread

16 Servings



1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice

Combine the flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and baking powder, and stir to mix well. Add the pumpkin and apple juice, and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened.

Coat an 8 x 4 loaf pan with cooking spray. Spread mixture evenly in the pan, and bake at 350F for 40 - 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Remove bread from oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Invert loaf onto a wire, turn right side up, and cool before slicing and serving.

This recipe came from our local newspaper. I have modified it only slightly to reduce the amount of fat. You definately won't miss the fat as this salad is chalked full of flavour. It is also a great source of Vitamins A & C.

Default Rice and Mushroom Casserole

Had this for dinner the other night served with some whole wheat rolls and steamed veggies. Dh really enjoyed it. I live in Canada and use the President's Choice brand Royal Blend Texmati Rice. It is a blend of brown and white basmatti, red, and wild rice. Any mixture would work well here - although I would really try to get something which contains wild rice.

Enjoy
