This is TRULY quick and easy! Low in calories (95.7 per 1/2 Cup serving) and a good amount of fiber (4.9g). Unfortunately, it is higher in sodium (380.4 mg) than I would like to have, but as I use little to no salt while cooking its a trade off.Submitted by EEOSKI
By cooking your own dried beans, you save money, reduce sodium and get better flavor along with, surprisingly, more vitamins and minerals. If you can't use the whole batch, freeze surplus cooked beans for later use in soups, salads and dips. The range of time for cooking beans is wide and varies with the age and the type of beans selected.Submitted by ANGELAWILLIAMS3
This is from the weight watcher book "Weight Watchers Quick Start Program Cookbook Newly Revised" This is my first time cooking it and I'll put a pic up later. Also I'm doing this in a rectangle pan because I have a lasagna pan but no jelly roll pan lol.Submitted by YOADDICTION101
We love this recipe in our house and make it at least once a week! You can easily substitute or add in other veggies (red or green peppers are great in this dish) or spices to make it exactly how you like it. It's super simple, delicious, and looks beautiful next to anything on your plate!Submitted by ELKINSS
This is a copycat of my Grandmother's Tomato Relish. Her recipe called for 2 pots of tomatoes; 1 pot of apples and 1/2 pot of onions. So it always begged the question - what size pot did she use? I have re-created (tested and approved) her recipe with quantities we can actually measure. This is a mild and slightly sweet relish/chutney that goes great on mashed potatoes and meatloaf.Submitted by TSMOTIVATION
Eggplant Dip has a great texture with a tangy, vinegary, seasoned taste that is mellowed with the pita. You also can smear the dip inside warm crepes for a different kind of presentation.
Food as Medicine
Rich color in vegetables usually indicates abundant heart-healthy antioxidants, and deep-purple eggplant is no exception. Eggplant is a particularly good source of an antioxidant called chlorogenic acid, which is among the most potent plant-based free-radical scavengers ever discovered.
