The Tabouli recipe is a healthful and delicious Mediterranean food recipe prepared with quinoa, mint, garlic, tomatoes, green onions, olive oil and lemon. An excellent picnic food idea, it tastes great chilled or at room temperature.
The original recipe used 2c cracked wheat soaked for 30 min in hot water then wrung out and added into the salad. I added the quinoa instead.
I've been trying to stay away from white four (all-purpose) so I bought a bag of whole wheat flour. In search of a whole wheat recipe I came across this recipe http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Whole-Whe
at-Honey-Banana-Muffins-115432 and thought it would be perfect. I decided to take this recipe to the next level of health by replacing the oil with applesauce, it worked! These are fluffy and moist and just yummy. For fun I sprinkled some with oats and honey. I recommend sprinkling them with honey because it makes the tops kind of gooey and delicious, but only a drizzle or else it will be really doughy on top.
I used mini muffin tins and made about 65 muffins. But towards the end I just got impatient and filled up three regular sized muffin cups.
I think these are the perfect way to get in some complex carbs and fiber and the wheat germ gives it a great extra health kick!
This is a very versatile recipe with substitutions that can make the cookies tastier or healthier, depending on the ingredients. The ingredients in the recipe are, in my opinion, the best combination of taste and nutrition. They can certainly be healthier or tastier, but that's up to you. I've tried many of the alternative ingredients and think they all work well. Enjoy!Submitted by AND_SCENE
This is a very low carb, easy, tasty sandwich stuffer. NOT low fat, so please don't comment about that - we low carbers do not avoid fat, we embrace it! :-) Try it on my recipe (listed on spark) for flax sandwich rolls with lettuce, tomato, and a slice of onion. Enjoy and please comment if you make it!Submitted by REBECCAFRIEDMAN
Here is a lovely vinaigrette that I have come across during my travels in France and perfected myself. It's definitely tangy and fresh. If you love garlic this vinaigrette is perfect. Serve it with a simple baguette and a bit of cheese, pour on your salads, or dress your meat with it.Submitted by SWEETMOYA
