Creamy Vegetable Rice with Teriyaki Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
I am not able to give it all the stars since I modified the recipe quite a bit. I did not have the called for "cooking cream" and I was serving the rice with already prepared "Panko Chicken". I prepared the rice (brown rice). In skillet I heated 1T grapeseed oil, 1T soy sauce and 1 tsp tamari (to sub for the teriyacki), added garlic saute for 30 secs. Then added the carrots and snow peas cooking for 3 mins. In mixing bowl i beated 1 block cream cheese, 3 heaping T nonfat plain yogurt, 1/3 c veg. broth with mixer, using wisks to smooth it out, then I added to skillet. I stirred in remaining soy/tamari mixture, blended well then added the cooked rice. It was delicious on its own but eating with the chicken was phenomenal. We had chives ready but forgot to garnish. Point is don't fret if you don't have cooking cream...its easy enough to create your own concoction.

Avocado Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
i had frozen my avocados and was looking for a smoothie recipe that i could use them in, so i tried this one. Now i have a new favorite! I try to stick to the recipe when I try it for the first time however I didn't have vanilla yogurt so I used nonfat plain organic yogurt. We tasted and my husband wanted the vanilla taste so I added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and it made a big difference. I'd rather not have the extra fat and calories from the milk so I may replace that with unsweetened coconut or almond milk next time. As is it is very delicious. It didn't appear to separate. It will brown a little as it is left out. I don't know how it will keep in fridge as we didn't have any leftovers.

Cucumber and Dill Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
We make this Pasta Salad all summer long for all our summer parties and for lunch and dinner sides during the week. I am not a fan of the usual pasta and potato salads at BBQ's. They are way too heavy for me. I love the lightness of this pasta salad. I love being able to use my veggies that grow in abundance in my garden along with my fresh dill although I frequently use 1 T dry dill which adds up to be more than what the recipe calls for. We also sometimes substitute the sour cream for greek yogurt (fage) or go halfsies. We also use 1/4 cup whole milk instead of the skim milk it calls for. We tried cutting back on the salt but this recipe really needs it along with plain shaker style black pepper. We tried using whole wheat pasta but it doesn't work well with this recipe. We enjoy the spiral type pasta or regular elbows. This pasta salad is the perfect answer for those looking for a lighter variation of the normal macaroni salad.
