Trying to figure out how to do a South Beach approach to eating while still remaining vegetarian. It's going to involve a lot of soy and eggs. Sigh.

Cookbook creator says: This is a perfect phase 1 recipe. Adding more vegetables ruins it, for some reason. Just stick to green peppers and seitan, and make the other veggies as another side dish.Submitted by MIMMI1
Cookbook creator says: I'm going to make a whole bunch of this, because it's good for snacks, packed lunch, etc. Also good on salad greens. Gets better sitting in the fridge (up to a point).Submitted by MIMMI1
Khaman Dhokla is a steamed savoury cake made from gram flour. It is a traditional Gujarati snack, typically a tea time treat. Typically, chana dal (split Bengal gram) is soaked, ground with spices and fermented. The fermented batter is then steamed, cut into bite sized pieces and garnished with tempered mustard seeds and coriander.
Chana dal or gram flour is a food with a low glycaemic index and therefore extremely good for diabetics and those on a GI diet. Besides, it has all the goodness of lentils - protein and fibre.Submitted by CHEEKYCHOOK
Cookbook creator says: These were not that great for us. Not sweet enough, not chocolatey enough...and too much Splenda aftertaste. So here's what i did: i covered them with sugar free maple syrup. Then they were pretty good! :)Submitted by GENEVIVA
This quick and healthy side dish takes just minutes to prepare! And as a bonus, it's an easy way to get the kids to eat their vegetables. (And if you don't like using butter spray, you could melt a few pats of butter and brush the butter on with a pastry brush - whatever your preference!)Submitted by MATCM81
