GREEK DRESSING - another variation


feta cheese -- 3 oz
3 tablespoons yogurt
2 tablespoons lemon juice -- or 1 lemon juiced
1 teaspoon mint -- fresh chopped
1 tablespoon marjoram -- fresh chopped
1 teaspoon oregano -- fresh chopped
1 clove garlic -- crushed
cracked black pepper -- to taste

Process the fetta, yoghurt and lemon until smooth then fold in the herbs, garlic and pepper. Thin with a little extra lemon juice or water if desired.
This is the perfect way to dress up a Greek salad. It is more subtle than large cubes of fetta cheese and will be happily mixed with any other leaf salad. This dressing is particularly good when drizzled over chilled tomato and cucumber slices for a simple and refreshing appetiser.

Default Noodle Pudding...

I got this from my cookbook "Whole Foods for the Whole Family" from La Leche League... This is pretty good if you like rice pudding.

Surprise Kugel aka Noodle Pudding

1/4 lb. Whole grain noodles
2 T. Butter
2 Small Eggs, beaten
1 C milk
1/2 c. yogurt
1/4 lb. tofu, crumbled
1/4 c. chopped apple (optional)
3/4 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 TBS honey

Cook noodles until tender; drain. Melt butter in 8 x 13 inch baking dish in oven. Combine remaining ingredients in bowl; mix well. Stir in noodles and half the butter; mix gently. Spoon into remaining butter in baking dish. Bake at 350 for 40 to 50 minutes or until set.

The whole grains, eggs and dairy make a great source of protein, and the tofu is an added bonus. Makes 8 servings.

Default Ketchup

Quick and Easy Ketchup recipe...


2 cups puree tomato
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 TBS agave (the recipe calls for honey)
1/4 tsp garlic powder, basil, nutmeg, and dry mustard
Dash pepper, mace, and cinnamon.

Combine all ingredients in blender, simmer in saucepan for 5 minutes. Store in covered container in fridge. It has less sweetning than commercial ketchup, so you can use more sweetner to taste.

Default Peanut Butter Satin

1/2 cup peanut butter (natural!)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup agave
1 tsp vanilla
3 or 4 eggs


Cream peanut butter, butter, agave and vanilla in mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time beating at high speed for at least 5 minutes between each addition. Serve by 1/4 cupfulls in attractive glasses... It only takes a SMALL serving of this to satisfy the withdrawl symptons of a dessert lover.

The nutrition facts are not accurate, because they use commercial peanut butter I'm sure, and honey not agave... so I son't bother... but even with honey and reg peanut butter...it's only 8 g of carbs per serving!.

Found this on the web and converted it from honey to agave. Haven't tried it yet, but sounded good enough to pass along. Wonder if we could forego the rum-don't like the taste of alcohol.


PECAN PIE

For the Crust:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour, sifted
1 tablespoon sugar (can use agave or sugar-sub)
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
3 to 5 tablespoons ice water (usually 4)


For the Filling:

4 eggs
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup agave syrup
1 tablespoon rum (guess you could use extract)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups shelled pecans


Crust:

1. Combine the flour, sweetener and salt in a bowl or in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the butter and cut in by rolling the mixture briskly between the palms of your hands to make sure the butter is evenly distributed. Or use the pulse action of the food processor. The mixture should have a crumbly, even consistency.

2. Add the water, a tablespoon at a time. Blend with a fork or your hands, until the mixture comes together. If you are using a food processor turn it on and add the water with the machine running, a tablespoon at a time. As soon as the dough comes together on the blades, stop the machine.

3. Butter your tart pan or pie dish. If the dough is quite warm and sticky, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Otherwise roll it out on a large, clean, lightly floured surface. Sprinkle the top lightly with flour to prevent it from sticking to the rolling pin. Or cover with a piece of wax paper and roll out. To roll it out, roll from the center to the edge, going in all four directions in succession, then roll between the points of the compass. Roll it very thin, about 1/8 inch thick. To transfer to the dish, gently fold the dough in half, then lift onto the dish and unfold it. Ease it into the corners of the pan, without stretching the dough or working it, as this causes shrinkage during baking. Pinch an attractive lip around the edge of the dough. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours, or up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.



Filling:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Beat the eggs and brush the bottom of the crust with a bit of the beaten eggs. Prick the crust in several places with a fork. Prebake 7 minutes and remove from the heat.

2. Cream together the butter and agave. Beat in the eggs, and add the rum, vanilla, nutmeg, and salt. Fold in the pecans and pour into the pie crust. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until firm and browned. The filling will puff up in the oven, and fall upon cooling. Allow to cool on a rack.

¼ cup butter alternative or vegetable oil
½ cup agave
