Default Stacked Eggplant Parmesan

STACKED EGGPLANT PARMESAN

1 eggplant
1 large onion
1 large tomato
olive oil
salt
grated parmesan

Cut ends off eggplant and slice into 1/2” thicknesses. Slice tomato and onion into 1/4” slices. Stack eggplant, tomato and onion, salting each layer very lightly in an oiled (or sprayed) flat baking dish. Drizzle a little olive oil on top of each stack. Cover tightly with foil.

Bake 1 hour at 350°, Remove foil and sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered 10 minutes prior to serving.


You can vary this by adding fresh herbs of your choice. I especially like to put leaf of fresh basil in each stack. A little black pepper can be nice too.

The caloric value of this dish is dependent on the amount of olive oil and cheese you choose to use.

Default Vegetable soup

Serves 4

2 medium potatoes, diced
2 to 3 carrots, thinly sliced
1 medium stalk broccoli, chopped
1 very large onion, chopped small
2 cups chopped mushrooms or eggplant
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 cups water or vegetable stock
4 to 6 large tomatoes, or 1 large can, chopped
3 to 4 celery stalks, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 to 2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons dried parsley, or 1/4 cup fresh, chopped
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
cayenne pepper, to taste
1 to 2 teaspoons sugar (optional)

Steam the potatoes, carrots, and broccoli for about 7 minutes.

In a large pot, sauté the onions and mushrooms or eggplant in oil until slightly transparent. (Use an extra tablespoon of oil if eggplant is used.) Add the water or vegetable stock, remaining vegetables, and soy sauce.

Cook 30 minutes longer on medium-low heat, until the vegetables are
tender but not soggy and the flavors have developed. Add the parsley, basil, oregano, cayenne pepper, and sugar, if desired.

Asparagus and Barley
(Props to Betty Crocker)

--2 TBS butter/margarine
--1 medium onion, chopped (~1/2 c)
--1 medium carrot, chopped (~1/2 c)
--1 cup un-cooked quick-cooking barley (I find that I have to soak my barley before cooking it in this recipe, or else the barley is a little hard. But I'm not sure my barley is "quick-cooking.")
--2 14.5 oz. cans vegetable broth (recipe calls for chicken broth, but I'm vegetarian )
--8 oz. asparagus (8-10 stalks), cut into 1" pieces (make sure to discard the bitter bottom white part)
--2 TBS shredded parmesan cheese
--1/4 tsp dried marjoran or thyme (I use thyme)
--1/8 tsp pepper

___
Simmer veggie broth.

Melt butter in skillet. Add onion and carrot, cook for 1-2 minutes.

Stir in barley.

Add 1 c veggie broth.

Cook uncovered ~ 5 minutes. Stir occasionally, until liquid is absorbed.

Stir in asparagus. Cook 15-20 minutes, occasionally adding veggie broth,until mixture is not liquid-y, but still moist.

Mix parmesan, thyme/marjoram, and pepper. Sprinkle over barley mixture. Stir.
___

According to Betty, this recipe serves 8 and has 130 calories, 4 g fat, and 5 g dietary fiber. I eat 1 1/2 to 2 servings for a vegetarian meal, but one serving is certainly enough for a side dish. This recipe is extremely filling.

Wink spicy chickpea rice

this is a very simple and quick recipe. i found it online, but cannot remember where, if anyone has seen it, please cite it for me, thanks:

1 can garbanzo beans, i get the low sodium
2 cups cooked rice, i prefer brown
salsa-to taste. any level from mild to hot, whatever you prefer
any other additions like tofu or veggies

recipe takes anywhere from 10-30 mins depending on whether you have instant rice or conventional rice.

cook the rice, add the garbanzo beans to rice over low-med heat. add salsa to taste, cook until warmed. add salt and pepper to taste. and there you have it, a quick low fat high protien meal. serves 2. you can serve with a salad or add veggies or tofu if you like.

Default 20 minute pizza

I tried it at home and it turned out so good that I dont wnat to eat pizza outside anymore. (it takes 20 minutes only and tastes just like any papa john's or domino's pizza or even better)

add 1 pack (0.25oz)fleischmann's yeast and 1/4 tsp sugar into 3/4 cup warm water. Mix and let it stand for 6 minutes. In the mean while, take a large bowl and add 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour+1/2 tsp salt and mix. preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

for sauce: mix 1/2 cup tomato puree with salt, garlic powder, oregano, basil and 1/2 tsp of oil. add a pinch of splenda. microwave it/ warm it for 1-2 minutes.stir.

Now add the yeast solution to the dough and knead firmly for 2-3 minutes. now flatten the dough with a hand or rolling pin on a plain surface. press firmly to make it into a 12"circular base. (knead from inside out first and then outside in)

now top it with your fav toppings (tomatoes, peppers, jalapeno, olives, mushrooms, pesto, pineapple, garlic etc...) then add 3-4 tbsp fat free/vegan pizza cheese on top.

Put it on a baking dish and bake on 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. (thin crust pizza) or more for a thick crust.

top it with chilli flakes and enjoy!
