Cole Slaw

Friday, July 04, 2014

Cole Slaw

1/2 cup Mayonnaise
A little sugar
Some spices- dill, garlic powder, onion powder, Mrs. Dash
1/2 bag of cabbage
Some baby spinach

Mix the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and spices until desired thickness. Add the cabbage and spinach and stir until well mixed.

Note: I didn’t measure anything. I use about half of a stevea packet (I got several packets as a free sample at a grocery store) I used low fat mayonnaise (not vegan) but you can use any type of mayonnaise you want.

    Yum! Thank you.

I tried a similar recipe that called for light sour cream instead of vinegar.
It's so much better if you make it a day early,

Carrot Dog

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

Carrot Dog

So it the time of year when you really want to bite into a yummy hot dog, bun and dripping in ketchup and mayonnaise…Wait, I’m a vegetarian and have you seen the ingredients list on the veggies dogs…yikes

But a carrot…really…so I’m trying this out..


2 Carrots
2 Buns
1/4 Cup Vinegar
1/4 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder
Black Pepper to taste

Clean, cut and peel the carrots (like you always do). Steam the carrots (or boil) until you can put a fork through but they are still hard (you don’t want mushy).

Then mix all the other ingredients (ok not the bun) together in a container that you can put the carrots in to marinate.

When the carrots are done you can cool them off (I forgot to do that) in water to stop it from cooking. Then add to the marinate mixture, over night.

The next day put a little marinate mixture and the carrots and sautéed them until they are brownish, black (not black like it’s burnt).

Then I drained the pan and heated up the buns. I like the buns crispy.
Then add the mayonnaise and ketchup (or what ever you like).

Ok how did I like them…plate empty…they were good…I could not taste the carrots (although I would not have mind cause it was good)…I’m going to get some ready for tomorrow’s lunch.


I did measure the exact measurements (usually I don’t measure).

I looked at many recipes and got the ingredient of what I thought I would like.

All the recipes were very close, they used different spices, some used garlic cloves, different vinegars (I used white); apple, rice, and others.

They all used liquid smoke (ok that sounded gross to me), and ginger (I’m not sure how I like ginger)

So you can use these ingredients if you’re brave…lol

I just used 100% whole wheat bun from the grocery store but you use whatever buns you like or don’t use a bun.

I had extra marinade left so I'm saving it for the next carrot dog.

    I think this sounded pretty flipped out! But amazing!!! Almost with a stir fry sauce if it had rice vinegar. Adding tomato puree would have made it into a barbeque sauce. I think I like vegetables like this but I would have not put it into bread, instead I would have made a vegan burger or hot dog out of beans & maybe tofu, and used the sauces either internally or as a sauce on the outside. either way at least you are eating very creatively. I think that's the thing with cooking, is to try new things, and experiment with ideas. you just never can image what tastes good together. I have mixed potatoes with cauliflower, lima beans with corn, fish with beef broth, pickle juice with potato soup. So whens that cook book coming out? You do a great job. eva

    Sounds good! I'll skip the bun- and the soy sauce I'll skip and use aminos- and just have the carrots that way for a different way to make carrots. Sounds worth the extra effort! Thanks. emoticon emoticon

    Wha-oh, sounds very different and interesting but delish! I may try this recipe. But make one for carrot and maybe make another one with tofu . The marinade sauce should work with tofu too. Don't you think? Thanks for sharing! emoticon emoticon emoticon

“Clean out the Freezer” Stir Fry

Monday, June 30, 2014

I made a “Clean out the Freezer” Stir Fry

You know its time to use what you have in the freezer when you open the freezer and stuff comes flying out. So I found these veggies (used a little of each):

Green and red onion
Swiss chard
Bok Choy
Summer squash
Kale and Purple kale

Add the veggies to a pan with a little water, mixed around and let cook until everything was hot. Heat up the rice and then put rice and the veggies on a plate and eat.

It was pretty darn easy when all the veggies where already cut up.

Just using a little of all those veggies made a lot of stir fry, so I’m going be cleaning out the freezer for awhile….lol

Black Bean Tacos

Saturday, March 22, 2014

Black Bean Tacos

Corn Tortillas
1 can black beans
1 can corn
Some red and orange pepper, cucumber, tomato, avocado
Hot sauce
One slice of daiya cheese
Spinach and lettuce

I took the Corn Tortillas and heated them in a pan with a tiny amount butter (I used some fat free dairy butter) until they are crispy.

Meanwhile I opened and rinse the black beans and corn and mixed together then chopped up some red and orange pepper, cucumber and tomato and mixed with the corn and the black beans along with some hot sauce and spices.

I added one slice of daiya cheese to the mixture and heated until warm.

Then I added the mixture on the Tortilla along with some Avocado and lettuce. Then fold like a taco.

I made this recipe up out of the stuff I had in the kitchen. I have seen this type of recipe everywhere (even made one) but I just never took the time to bring any recipe to the kitchen. But I have a bunch of ingredients to use up so I just started adding stuff together and out can some yummy tacos.

I have heated the Tortillas dry and they turn out good but I like them crunchy so that is why I use a little butter. I have not tried water so I’m not sure if it will work.

When I added the corn and the black beans together it was a lot (for one person) so I only used some of the corn and black beans with the other ingredients.

    i did make something very similar this week-end. The only thing I didn't do was the corn. i just didn't feel like going to the store. I did guacamole instead of avocado. I enjoyed it, and it was messy to eat. I am going to stick to using avocado instead of the dip i used. But this kind of food for me is very dangerous. Cause i love party type foods, and don't know when to stop. Two of them blows my weight watchers meal. Let's just say, I've blown the whole week-end.
I also have made a sandwich on a wasa rye crisp like this before, so it's a regular on my eating list already.eva

Sauteed and Steamed Veggies along with Baked Sweet Potatoes and Butternut Squash

Monday, March 03, 2014

Sauteed and Steamed Veggies along with Baked Sweet Potatoes and Butternut Squash

½ cup zucchini and summer squash
½ cup red, green onion and leeks
½ cup cabbage and bok choy
1 cup mushroom
1 cup eggplant
2 cups kale
1 can kidney beans
1 can green beans

First I sauteed the mushrooms and eggplant in one pan and the zucchini, summer squash, red, green onion, leeks, cabbage and bok choy in another pan and sauteed for around 5-10 minutes. Then I put the veggies in a container so I can use the pans again.

Then I added the kidney and green beans to one pan and the greens to the other pan. The greens are done when they are all wet and welted. The kidney and green beans don’t need to be sauteed for long (long enough to taste good)

I don’t like the kidney beans so I mashed them up and then added the greens with some extra spices.

While I was sauteing the veggies I was baking some sweet potatoes and butternut squash and steaming some broccoli and asparagus.

I add some tomato sauce to the veggies along with the spices. The tomato sauce gives yummy topping on the veggies.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Note: I don’t measure anything so everything is a guess.

I just use different spices I have and add to the sauteed veggies.

I used up a bunch of frozen veggies and fresh veggies that I had left over.

You can add any veggies, beans and grains that you want or have on hand.

Did I tell you there is a kale alert! On Dr Oz he said, "that too much kale during the week enlarges your thyroid because it shuts it down. You need to counter balance this with sea weed for the iodine." eva
