Trying to figure out how to do a South Beach approach to eating while still remaining vegetarian. It's going to involve a lot of soy and eggs. Sigh.

Cookbook creator says: This is a great recipe. I usually make it with brown rice or with cornbread, but those sides will have to wait til after phase 1.

Cookbook creator says: This is a perfect phase 1 recipe. Adding more vegetables ruins it, for some reason. Just stick to green peppers and seitan, and make the other veggies as another side dish.

Cookbook creator says: I'm going to make a whole bunch of this, because it's good for snacks, packed lunch, etc. Also good on salad greens. Gets better sitting in the fridge (up to a point).

Khaman Dhokla
(no ratings)

Khaman Dhokla is a steamed savoury cake made from gram flour. It is a traditional Gujarati snack, typically a tea time treat. Typically, chana dal (split Bengal gram) is soaked, ground with spices and fermented. The fermented batter is then steamed, cut into bite sized pieces and garnished with tempered mustard seeds and coriander.

Chana dal or gram flour is a food with a low glycaemic index and therefore extremely good for diabetics and those on a GI diet. Besides, it has all the goodness of lentils - protein and fibre.

Black Bean Brownies
Good 3.4/5

Cookbook creator says: These were not that great for us. Not sweet enough, not chocolatey enough...and too much Splenda aftertaste. So here's what i did: i covered them with sugar free maple syrup. Then they were pretty good! :)
