1 cup Jasmine rice, rinsed and drained for 15-20 minutes
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
good pinch of salt
Bring coconut milk, water to...
Less than 75 calories and very delicious! I used beech smoked salmon from Aldi, which is excellent value. This is so simple to make that it barely warrants a recipe, but I’m trying to compile a list of really low calories meals for my own use (lest I forget them) and thought others who are...
I came across these yellow beans in the supermarket (imported from Kenya). They taste very similar to green beans but perhaps more 'musky'. Inside the pods are tiny pale green beans which may account for that flavour. Anchovies work wonderfully with fresh beans so I set about creating a simple...
Beautiful Bel Fiori radicchio adds a splash of drama to this salad but you could use any radicchio leaves you wish. The slight bitterness of the radicchio contrasts well with the creamy mild beans. The vegan aioli is made with the liquid from a can of black beans. I love the pinky-mauve colour...

A no cook recipe! Many recipes for Tabbouleh use a lot more parsley (or parsley/mint) than I have, often in a ratio of double the weight of herbs to the weight of dry bulgur. Personally. I prefer rather more grain but you can vary this to your taste. The dill adds a lovely fragrance here. I used...

CRANBERRY RELISH AND CRANBERRY JELLO SALAD
The relish is pretty good on its own and what I prefer to eat if I have cranberries at all.
1 pound fresh cranberries, washed and picked thru to get rid of bad ones
1 large naval orange, zested and then supremed, with juice
3/4 to 1...
This is from Dahlia Abraham-Klein's book, Silk Road Vegetarian: Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten-Free Recipes for the Mindful Cook. Page 89. All recipes are vegetarian and apparently gluten-free - a few do contain dairy (which can probably be sourced animal-rennet-free). This recipe was created...

The Greek name for this salad is: Kardia Arniou Stin Schara Kai Marathosalata. A little too long to put in the title.

Rest Time: Not needed.
Serves: There were 20-25 of us at the pot luck and I came home with about 1/5 remaining....
Leftovers: YES! Refrigerate. The bacon will not retain crispness, but this won't matter...
There is a good BBQ Joint in Dallas called Lockhart's BBQ. Great brisket -- the signature meat of Texas BBQ.
Like most BBQ joints here, one of the sides is potato salad. Most places do a basic Mayo based salad, but Lockhart's takes theirs up a notch. It is mayo based, but has a kick to it. I...
