Skinny Spaghetti Ok, so I know we’re all trying to cut back & slim down for summer. I know you’ve read myAnti-Diet & you’re desperate for more recipes to help you on your way. You’re probably looking at this huge plate of mouthwatering meaty pasta and thinking about all those carbs & calories… Come on! The chilli is the only part of this recipe that really takes work. Fry your onions until soft and add your garlic. Keep stirring and moving it around the pan until it browns. Now, sprinkle your cayenne pepper & smoked paprika over the top. Pour in the wine (pour yourself a glass while you’re at it). Add your BBQ sauce & Siriacha. By the end you should be left with a rich, dark coloured chilli which will smell amazing. If you’re not happy with it, play around. Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan (not cheddar andnot that powdered stuff you keep at the back of the cupboard.) The best ‘diet foods’ are the ones that make you feel like you’re not missing out at all.

Salted Chocolate-Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares Wedding brain, part III. I made an appointment to have my wedding dress altered. The tailor told me to bring the undergarments and shoes I’ll be wearing to the big day. I responsibly took note in my calendar to make sure I wouldn’t forget. Just one problem. Um, THE DRESS?! Yes, because the tailor didn’t explicitly mention the dress in her list of things to bring, I was thisclose to showing up at the dressing room with just my wedding underwear. That would have been a very difficult moment to recover from smoothly. “Could you take an inch off the butt cheeks please? The worst part was, I didn’t even have the dress in my possession – it was still hanging in a bag at the store (which was closed, of course). SERIOUSLY. These squares are dangerously easy and crazy addictive.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili | KneadForFood - Food Blog Recipes Almost everyone I know enjoys a good bowl of chili, whether in one form or another. Most people go for the standard chili con carne, of which I have a great appreciation for, as it’s hard to mess with the classics. But chili has definitely evolved beyond the ground beef and kidney beans of its ancestral heritage, despite what stubborn traditionalists may think. I’ve had all bean chilies that have rocked my socks and even seen a duck confit chili. This sweet potato chili is a vegan chili by every definition, but I just look at it as a good chili. Ingredients: 2-3lbs Sweet Potatoes 1-1/2 Cups Dried Black Beans 1 Large Spanish Onion diced 3 Cloves Garlic minced 2 Serrano sliced (optional) 2lbs Tomatoes (Vine, Roma or Beefsteak) 1/2 Tspn Cinnamon 1 Tspn Smoked Paprika 1 Tbs Chili Powder 2 Tspn Fresh Thyme 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup 1 Cup Beer (Dark Stout or Lager) or Water 2 Tbs Olive Oil Salt and Pepper Garnish with brunoise onion and serrano pepper Preheat the oven to 400º. Bon Appétit.

Easy home made mayonnaise very delicious easy peasy home made mayonnaise Once you start making your own mayonnaise, and realise just how simple and tasty it is, you wont be interested in the preservative-laden shop-bought options anymore. I recently did some experimenting with making aioli and adding a variety of flavours which led into making this very quick and easy mayonnaise. Aioli is wonderful, a bit richer and uses olive oil, but nothing beats a good home-made mayonnnaise to have on hand for sandwiches. I have added a lot of flavour to this recipe, but you can just adjust it however you like. I quite like a bit of zing, so used red wine vinegar and lemon juice. easy home made mayonnaise Ingredients 2 egg yolks (free range and very fresh eggs) 2 T red wine vinegar 1 T lemon juice 2 t Dijon mustard 1 t salt 3 cloves of garlic crushed (totally optional) a pinch or 2 of sugar black pepper (as much as you like) 500ml / 2 cups of canola oil Instructions

Homemade Vegetarian Vegan Tomato Soup Recipe nutritional information Serves 8 30 minutes or fewer Once you’ve discovered how easy it is to make a great tomato soup, you’ll wonder why you ever bought canned. 2 Tbs. olive oil 1 medium onion, chopped (1½ cups) 1 Tbs. tomato paste 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.) 1 tsp. sugar 1 15-oz. can diced tomatoes 1 vegetable bouillon cube, optional 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar ½ tsp. dried thyme 1. 2. January/February 2014 p.61 You'll Want To Put This Clean "Crack Sauce" On EVERYTHING It started with a black bean burrito at (arguably) Brooklyn's best taco truck, Calexico. In addition to the beans, rice, salsa and guacamole, there's this rich, pink sauce slathered over the tortilla, melding the burrito together in this perfect, creamy way, with the ideal ratio of sweet to smoky. Calexico rightfully won't reveal their secret recipe, but it was easy to discern the possible ingredients. So, we set out to make a version that was cleaner than what we image the original to be, with no sugar or regular mayo. Clean Crack Sauce Ingredients Makes around 1 cup 8 oz (around ½ jar) of Veganaise2 chipotle peppers in adobo (look for the versions without sugar or flour – Whole Foods usually carries them)1 tablespoon smoked paprikajuice of ½ a lime1 clove of garlic Preparation Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.
