Lunches / Bentos

Getting all the stuff to make cute Bentos for kids' lunches during the last week of school is bad timing. But it gives me all summer to collect recipe ideas. The cook book gives me a way not to forget them before fall.

I first had this dish at a local "Spirit Festival" and it was prepared to accomodate vegans. (I was not vegan at the time) It is slighly sweet and filling.

Hollandaise sauce is a wonderful naturally low-carb topping for omelets and quiches as well as Eggs Benedict, broccoli, asparagus, Veal Oscar, and many other foods. Making one the traditional way (double-boiler) is really not necessary. You can make hollandaise sauce for one person in less than 5 minutes using ready-at-hand ingredients, utensils and a bit of microwave cookery know-how.

Turned out delicious! Only about 15 calories per mushroom, depending on how large of a mushrooom you use. The filling comes out firm even though it looks a bit runny as you are filling the caps.

Dough recipe from
George Foreman directions by yours truly!

Quick and easy way to cook an individual portion of flat bread (almost like a cracker). Plus, it's got a majority of whole wheat flour! Try it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar!
