1/2 cup Green Onion -- chopped
2 cups Brown Rice -- cooked
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, lowfat -- shredded
1/2 cup Fat-free Cottage Cheese -- optional

Veggie Garden Loaf - 4 Points

Recipe By :Richard Simmons
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Main Dishes Vegetarian

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup shredded zucchini
1 cup sliced carrots -- steamed
1 cup broccoli flowerets -- steamed
3/4 cup oatmeal -- uncooked
1 slice whole wheat bread -- crumbled
3 tablespoons oat bran
3 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese -- (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 egg
1 egg white
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 cup chopped parsley
6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

This is every bit as good as meat loaf and just as versatile. Yes, it will
even make a good sandwich, but watch the mayo!

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. In small skillet heat olive oil and saute onion until translucent, about 5
minutes.

3. In large bowl combine zucchini, carrot, broccoli, oatmeal, breadcrumbs,
oat bran and cheese.

4. In small bowl beat together tomato sauce, egg and egg white,
seasonings and Parmesan.

5. Combine all ingredients and stir thoroughly to mix.

6. Turn mixture into 9x5-inch loaf pan coated with non-stick spray.

7. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until firm. Let stand 15 minutes before
slicing. Makes 6 servings.

NOTE: Why the sudden interest in Oat bran? Oat bran is the fibrous outer
layer of the oat grain, which is generally removed when the grain is
processed into oatmeal. Now that we know the importance of fiber in a
well balanced diet, it is a good practice to put some of that oat bran back
into our food.

Hi all. This recipie is out of _New Vegetarian Cuisine_ by Linda Rosenweig. I am not sure how many points it is as is. (I am at work now) and wondered if anyone has any ideas how to lighten it up...

MAKES 4 servings

1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup brown lentils, rinsed and drained.
1 cup canned red kidney beans, rinsed and drained.
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon margarine
1 medium Vidalia or other sweet onion, thinly sliced crosswise and separated into rings
8 ounces of mushrooms thinly sliced
4 sesame topped hamburger buns

1. In a 2 quart saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the water and the lentils to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover the pan, and simmer for about 25 minutes or until tender. Drain if all the water has not been absorbed.
2. Place the lentils in a food processor. Add the beans, process until smooth.
3. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the wheat germ, pecans, chili sauce, cumin and garlic powder; mix well. Form the mixture into 4 patties.
4. Grill or broil for about 5 minutes per side, or until golden.
5. While the burgers are cooking, melt the margarine in a large no-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and the mushrooms, cook, stirring frequently, for 8 to 10 minutes or until very tender and the mushroom liquid has evaporated.
6. to serve, place the patties in the buns and top with equal amounts of the mushroom mixture.

I made this recipe yesterday, sorta a creation of my own. It was yummy, didn't miss the chicken at all.

3 potatoes, peeled and diced
4 carrots, sliced
3 ribs celery, sliced
1 onion, diced
1 can 98% fat-free cream of mushroom soup
6 cups water
2 tsp. seasoning salt

Bring to a boil and simmer til veggies are tender.

Mix together the following:

2 cups flour
1 egg
1 T. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Enough water to make a soft dough

Return broth to a boil and drop the dough by spoonfuls into the broth and veggies. Cover and simmer til dumplings are cooked, about 15 min. Do not lift cover while they are cooking. Mine made 14 dumplings and I figured 4 points for 2 dumplings and a bowl of soup. Makes 7 servings.

Would someone mind running this recipe through Mastercook to check my calculations on points? Thanks, Dee
