Default Vegetarian Main Dishes

I didn't know what to call this section so Suzanne, change the name as you see fit.

Here is the recipe for cottage cheese roast. Linda changes are noted: And yes it sounds totally bizzare and weird. I usually make half a recipe instead of a whole one. It takes no time to assemble. I turn the oven on to preheat and before the oven is ready, I am finished assembling.

Cottage Cheese Roast

1 (16 ounce) package creamed cottage cheese -I use Low fat
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups cornflakes cereal I use this amount in crushed cornflakes. Dump a bunch into food processor and measure afterwards
2 eggs, beaten - I use egg beaters
1/4 cup vegetable oil -I leave this out entirely

Linda addition - chopped fresh spinach and chopped garlic

Directions
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan.
2 In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, eggs, vegetable oil, soup mix, walnuts and cereal.Spinach and garlic are added here too, if you use them Spoon into prepared pan. I top this with a mixture of ketchup and tabasco. Salsa also works
3 Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. I bake it for an hour

I've never had this hot because it just doesn't appeal to me being hot. I eat it cold in whole wheat tortillas, with ketchup and kosher dill pickles. Think of this along the lines of a cold meatloaf sandwich. which most of us probably have had before.

Default Depends

The way I make it, I think it has about 200-250 a serving. Can't remember right now. You really should do your calculations for the ingredients you bring home. There can be a lot of variance in things. I enter all my ingreds into Dietpower and then divide by the serving size. If you are going to be watching calories, this might be something for you to look into. You can dled a free 15 day demo from their web site.

I use a LOT of recipes and I wouldn't be able to keep track accurately or as easily on paper.

And that is a non compensated PLUG!!

Default Zucchini

We have lots of zucchini & all my friends, neighbors lock their car doors so I can't unload on them.
I'm looking for your favorite way to prepare them as a side dish or vegetable. I belong to allrecipe.com plus some other recipe sites but nothing beats your personal favorites. I'm not looking for anything sweet, we're not bread, dessert types. Please post your favorites, Thanks!
