Carbs, Carbs and more Carbs

It is interesting that I made lots of fun-looking salads and such this week….but all I remembered to take pictures of were carbs.  Must be my mindset as we count down to Passover…the things I’m really holding on to for prosperity are full of flour. First off, with a vegetable I don’t buy often, was [...]

Sesame Orange Tempeh over Couscous

I’m still of the belief that if I combine couscous with Asian flavors, it is an Asian ingredient…as long as no one tells the Japanese or the Moroccans about it, I suppose I’m safe.  You may not want to tell the Chinese either, now that I think about it.  I was making a friend’s recipe [...]

Fried Rice Filled Crepes

This is what happens when I cook things and don’t post about them for awhile….I forget what was in them…and with all the leftovers gone, I can’t exactly go look.  This is a bit of a misnomer, since I used non-stick cooking spray instead of oil, and the rice isn’t actually “fried” but I’m still [...]

Sweet Potato Asparagus Tart with Asparagus Pesto

It’s been awhile since I entered the SOS (Sweet or Savory) challenge over at Diet, Dessert, and Dogs, but when I saw this month’s ingredient, I couldn’t resist.  Asparagus is just plain awesome, and I knew the hardest part would be doing something different and creative with it, because I’ve done lots of fancy things [...]

Eggplant Dengaku and Quinoaaaaaa

We’re coming into quinoa season, I can tell.  Not that quinoa isn’t widely available year round and pretty much impervious to weather changes, but my quinoa season happens soon…real soon.  It’s called Passover, and as an Ashkenazi Jew and Vegetarian, it’s pretty much the only thing resembling a grain or protein that I can eat.  [...]

Curry Laksa

So I’m still working my way through Appetite for Reduction, which is doing well for me..I’ve had lots of yummy food, and the pants I bought a little too small a couple weeks ago now fit rather nicely.  I’ve also been upping my workouts a bit…running farther and faster, not letting my mind tell me [...]

TLT!!!!

So….tempeh, lettuce and tomato hasn’t been in my life for awhile…I’m not sure why, since it’s such a classy combination of deliciousness…but we seem to have gone our separate ways, and yesterday I decided it was time for a reunion.  I had sandwiches on the mind, because the Foodbuzz publisher program that I’m a part [...]

Blackened Tofu and Kale over Saffron Rice

I’ve tried blackened tofu before, but found it rather dry and bland…so I’d thought perhaps you need to toast the spices first or something along those lines…turns out I was just using the wrong recipe.  I gave the blackened tofu from Appetite for Reduction last week, and was amazed at just how flavorful and delicious [...]

Comfort Food Diet

Since with the first week of spring came snow (obviously) I figured I’d try some less salad-inspired dishes from Appetite for Reduction and see how I felt about some warming diet food.  First off was the orange scented broccoli with caulipots…although I didn’t have any OJ or oranges, and used granulated orange and orange blossom [...]

Salads out of Appetite for Reduction

If I knew salads could taste this good, I probably would’ve been on a “diet” for the last 3 years.  The everyday quinoa salad (which I think might be the first recipe in Appetite for Reduction) was VERY good, and super filling, although I’m not sure I’d want to eat it EVERY DAY, the amount [...]
