Spiced Quinoa

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
I really like this dish and made it vegan with the substitution of vege broth. I've been experimenting with Indian seasonings this year and notice a difference in curry seasoning. Mine was spicy so I didn't add any extra. If you are new to quinoa it is very nutritious but be sure to rinse it well or it may taste dirty (IMHO). For me the raisins balance the curry with a sweetness that is needed. I'm glad I left them in. I'm serving this dish to a vegan friend tonight with Gardein chicken-like cutlets but the dish looks hearty enough to serve in bowls with pita bread.

Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
These are the best Pancakes I've ever made from scratch. I'm lazy when it comes to measuring things but this is easy and if you follow this recipe EXACTLY they come out looking like those in the picture. I made sure I sifted completely & had my pan hot enough. I spread out the batter with the back of spoon to make them thinner but they are also fun thick and fluffy. I used "Florida Crystals" brand of "vegan" sugar. Make sure pan doesn't get too hot or you can burn these like any pancake. Next time I will follow other's advice and add some soy, rice or almond milk in place of the water. I'll also add some Cinnamon and a 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I may even throw some blueberries in them. Top them off with some Earth Balance (vegan) and some agave or maple syrup. I entertain often and wouldn't hesitate to serve these to any guest. I'm off to go freeze some extra ones. Enjoy!

Jamaican Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Makes a lot. I cut this recipe in half and made 5 small or 4 large burgers. These tasted great but wanted to let viewers know that the texture is like a soft burger. You won't get the same feel as a boca burger. I'm vegan and served this with a thick slice of tomato, lettuce, vegenaise which is a cholesterol free mayo topping you can get at Whole Foods or Trader Joes or even Publix. Try to get a thick big whole wheat bun to serve with these.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
A vegan perspective. I modified this. Make sure you use fresh, not dried seasonings. House will smell awesome. I added some extra butternut squash and sweet patatoes which I later put it into a food processor with some seasonings and made soup using the seasonings from "Spiced Butternut Squash Soup" recipe on this website. In the soup I used coconut milk instead of heavy cream (I'm a vegan). The other vegetables in the roasting pan turned into awesome side dishes and and awesome potato salad with veganaise.

Smoked Salmon and Egg Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I just saw a cooking featuring this sandwich. They used capers and no celery or onion. I like the finly chopped celery and onion mixed in. They served this on thin white square bread with crusts cut off. Then they spread mayo on one edge and dipped in chopped chives to add onion flavor. Very elegant for a brunch item or pile it in a pita, lettuce cups or bread of choice. I used the 4oz package of smoked salmon. Use reg mayo if your not watching calories.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
This is awsome! Some people cut down broth, some added corn,chipotle seasoning or extra hot stuff. I change this up all the time. I added BLACK WILD RICE to it which gives it a unique flavor. It also has a nice contrast against all the white ingredients. You must try this. A slow cooker also works but best to brown the turkey, onion and garlic first.

Sesame Seared Tuna

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2005
Great sauce! I used very Fresh Ahi Tuna ($21.00 per Pd. We like our tuna rare and only cooked on very hot for 30 seconds each side in a flat skillet. I didn't have a iron skillet handy. I will do this again but will shop somewhere else for my tuna. You can't go wrong with this recipe if you follow here directions exaclty. Next time I'm trying it blackened. Yum.
