I have reduced the sugar in the traditional Chinese recipe by half and used powdered sugar rather than granulated, to lend a flaky texture. These easy cookies are a perfect little sweet ending to a vegetarian Asian dinner.
I've listed this dish as a side dish, however it is so high in complete protein, that it may be used as a main dish and served with raw vegetables and fruit. It is so delicious!
Instead of rice, try this nutritious wheaty side dish. It goes beautifully with many bean dishes, and is easy to make.
Red cabbages are high in antioxidants and contain more vitamin C per serving than do oranges. Here is a slightly sweet, refreshing salad you can make with red cabbage. It's easy and delicious!
This honeyed dessert is the perfect finish to a good vegetarian, Greek dinner. The floral tones of the lavender add a nice touch to this traditional treat.
We recently found a Scottish thistle mold for shortbread in a second hand store. I have used it to make a shortbread that is slightly lower in sugar and much higher in protein. It melts in your mouth with its buttery flavor!
These snack balls are great for a high-protein vegetarian snack or after-school treat. I like to serve them for breakfast with toast/crackers and fruit. They are great chilled and served straight out of the refrigerator! Another use for them is in vegetarian soups. Their firm texture holds up to the hot broth.
The nice thing about growing chard in your garden is that it is great both cooked and raw! Tender chard makes a refreshing change from lettuce in this lovely salad.
This is a bittersweet chocolate candy that is full of almonds and goes great with a cup of hot coffee. Break it up and serve it at your next party. It is oh, so easy to make!
Try this spread on slices of Country Bran Bread for a tasty treat.
