First Up-from a biggest loser cookbook (FREE-just sayin)
Spinach and Feta Brown Rice1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup brown rice
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
3 TB feta cheese
3 TB feta cheese
salt/pepper to taste
Cook rice. Lightly mist skillet with olive oil. Add onion and garlic to pan. Stirring occasionally for 4 to 6 mins over medium heat, until tender. Do not let the onions turn brown. Add rice and spinach. cook until the spinach is completely wilted. Stir in the cheese and season with salt/pepper. Serve immediately.
Jess and I loved this! We made two batches because we downed the first one in a few seconds.
It makes two 1/2 cup servings. And took a few minutes to put together. DEF. saving this for the recipe box.
Potato Balls2-3 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 small onion-chopped fine
1 1/2 cup shredded cheese(used Colby)
crushed corn flakes(used special K)
Heat the potatoes until slightly warm. Add onion, egg, and cheese. Makes balls out of mixture. Then roll balls in the crushed corn flakes. Place balls on a cookie sheet. Then make small well in the middle of the ball and add butter. Bake at 350 for 15-20 mins. Until the ball is heated thru and cheese is melted.
These also were amazing. Seriously. What else is there to say carbs, cheese, and butter.
Chocomoly1 avocado(skin off and pit removed)
1 tsp vanilla
3 heaping TB of cocoa
3 TB Honey(she called for 12 chopped dates)
Put all into a blender and blend the heck out of it. Until you get a creamy, mousse like look and feel. I found this off a website called Consuming Raw.
This recipe was good. It was very rich and you would never know it was avocado. I am not sure I would make it again. But if you are working towards a clean was of eating and need chocolate this would work. I would give it 4 stars.
Black Bean Brownies.
We in the blog world have seen this recipe over and over. Jess and me needed to know what the fuss was all about. I do not have the recipe we used but because you can google it, I am not worried. My word of advice to you would be WAIT FOR THEM TO COOL BEFORE CONSUMING. We of course ate them right out of the oven so I could still feel that "bean texture" They weren't bad but after I got home and they cooled down. I ate them again and again, and again. So if you are on a gluten free diet or looking for a healthy way to eat your brownies, these would work. Just wait for them to cool.. I didn't try but I am pretty sure I could have passed them off on the Husband after they cooled. So in the end they were good and I didn't feel guilty after I ate them.
Now for the recipe that is the title of this post. I made this today for the weekly gathering at my mom's. I am really trying to cook new recipes because I have enough printed ones from blog sites and enough cookbooks to feed the world until Dooms Day. So this is from a cookbook I got at a yard sale, of course.
