Lactose Free Recipes (Most Popular)
These are really good, more like little muffin-cookies. You could probably cut back on the sugar, and use whole wheat flour and some applesauce to take out some of the oil. I didn't have any of that stuff when I made them, so they aren't as healthy as they could be. But they are good!Submitted by RAEROSE1984
A tasty treat I developed years ago as a vegetarian dish and added in turkey. Good for a Sunday night meal with plenty leftovers. Freezes well, too.
The veggies can be exchanged for others, my picky eaters prefer finely diced squash since in texturally disappears into the beans and meat. And I like a LOT of spices, so taste it a few times along the way.
If you like conch chowder, try this version using calamari. It is thick and hearty with robust seafood flavour and just enough spiciness to tickle the tongue. This recipe calls for both the squid tubes and tentacles, but if you don't care for the tentacles, simply use an equal amount of the body instead. This method adds the squid rings last so they remain tender with little cooking.Submitted by JO_JO_BA
I went to the Protein Bar and bought a cup of their Kale Navy Bean Soup with Chicken for $6.00. I went to the grocery store that night and bought all of the ingredients you see listed for less than $20.00, and the recipe actually yields more than 6 servings. It's Good and it tastes way better than the Protein Bar!! Also if you don't want chicken you can use Tofu.Submitted by SCUNNINGHAM2002
When cooking with pasta, I have always believed in the old saying that 'less is more'.
What I mean by this is that you don't need to add dozens of ingredients to a dish for it to be really tasty.
Sometimes, too many ingredients can be a little overpowering with all the flavours fighting to stand out. Pasta can be enjoyed with the addition of nothing more than some salt and pepper and a good splash of quality olive oil.
Here is a perfect example where I have chosen a few good quality ingredients that will compliment each other without overcomplicating the dish.
For those of you who are quite adventurous, have a go at making your own pasta. It is not as tricky or complicated as you may think!
Cool, refreshing, decidedly healthful, absolutely DELICIOUS, this is my favorite drink. I despise coffee, and I find this gives just enough caffeine in the morning to gently wake me without giving me jitters. Sometimes I don't fee like actually eating in the morning and this is what I grab on my way out.
Some info about Matcha:
Matcha is ground green tea leaves native to Japan, used in tea ceremonies there. You know the health benefits of green tea everyone has been raving about? 1 tsp of matcha is as beneficial as up to 6 tsp of brewed green tea leaves because you actually eat matcha powder instead of tossing it away after brewing.
Get yourself a decent matcha powder. Check your local asian supermarkets. Find a container sealed with a vacuum/nitrogen lock. Make sure it is grown in Uji for best quality. "Thin" Matcha is fine for this drink and other recipes.

This is a recipe from my vegetarian slow cooker cookbook.
I love using my crockpot whenever possible, especially in the summertime!
I omitted the beans (15oz) and the black olives (2 T) because some members of my family are allergic to them. The cooking time IS factored in for the slow cooker.
