Very Good (2 ratings)
Lentil Sauce over Pasta

I first made this when I was about 17 and I had decided to become a vegetarian. When the recipe called for "garlic cloves," I had no idea what that meant. I knew about garlic and I knew about the spice called "cloves" but didn't know garlic came in "cloves." So -- I just added both. Eventually, of course, I learned what was meant, but by that time, I'd grown used to the clove taste!

The original recipe also called for the lentils to be put into a blender or food press, too, and that does make for a nice sauce, but being lazy, I normally leave them whole.

Lentil Sauce

Serve over egg or spaghetti noodles.

Tomato Cheese "Pie"

A very old old Weight Watcher recipe.

Minted Chicken

I love mint and this is quite good.

San Francisco Chicken

I got this recipe from Recipezaar. It was posted by Marie. I tweaked the oil a bit. Soy sauce is high in sodium but worth it once in a while. I don't think the reduced sodium kind tastes good but if you like it, using it here would definitely be healthier.

Swiss "Fondue"

This recipe is from an out of print early '70's era book called, "Weigh of Life," by Ruth Maislen. The Weigh of Life program was almost identical to the Weight Watchers plan of that time. I've made it all these years, so you know I must like it. The only thing I changed is that I now use (as listed below) low fat Swiss cheese. It tastes the same to me.

Better'n'Peanut Butter 'n' Banana Smoothie

This is an adaption of a recipe posted by HEALTHYWANNABE
