Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Friday, April 15, 2011

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
6 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/4 cup flax seed meal and water (let set for a while)
2 1/2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp. brown sugar, not packed
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. cocoa

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips (flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt). Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients (applesauce, pumpkin, flax seed meal and water, and vanilla extract). Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir until completely blended. Then, fold in the chocolate chips. Spray a large baking pan with nonstick spray, and spoon batter into 8 evenly spaced circles. Place pan in the oven for about 10 minutes (until cookies appear done and feel firm). Remove pan from the oven and allow cookies to cool slightly. For best results, enjoy while the cookies are still warm and the chips are still melty! MAKES 8 SERVINGS

What is nice about this cookies is that they only make one pan and there is not alot of sugar in them and you have fruit in the cookies instead of fat.

You can use half white whole wheat flour and 100% whole wheat flour if you want it more softer cookie.

You can use different sugars if you want. I have used Sucanat, Turbinado, stevia blend and sugar. I just use the brown sugar because you don’t use a lot and I’m not sure what to use.

I have used banana in place of pumpkin (I couldn’t find can pumpkin)

    How much flax and how much water? Is it 1/4 cup flax and 1/4 cup water? Or 1/4 cup total (in which case how much of each to make up the 1/4 cup)?

Mujadara: Lentils and Veggies

1 Cup Lentils
¼ Cup Cabbage
¼ Cup Red Pepper
¼ Cup Mushrooms
¼ Cup Eggplant
¼ Cup Spinach
1/2 Onions
1 to 1 1/2 Cups Veggie Broth (water)
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
1 to 2 Tablespoons oil

Dice the onions into small pieces. Heat the pot on med-high heat. Add 1 to 2 Tablespoon of Oil and 1/2 an onion. Cook until onion is caramelized.

Add lentils, veggie broth (water), salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

After 10 minutes, add veggies (exept spinach) and 1 Teaspoon Cumin. Cover and simmer for additional 10 minutes. Add spinach at the last minute.

You can add 1 Cup Rice.

I used cook lentils so I didn’t cook for 20 minutes. I cooked lentils and the veggies for around 10 minute (added the spinach last)

I just used whatever veggies I have.

I used a bunch of spices that I have until I liked the flavor.

    This sound delicious however, you don't mention when you are adding the VEGGIE BROTH! You mention adding water, that's not on the list of ingredients!

Are you using then interchangeably???

Cous Cous and Veggies

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Cous Cous and Veggies

½ cup dry Cous Cous (soak for a couple of hours)
½ can Black Beans

Red onion, Green onion, Tomato, Red pepper, Broccoli (very small pieces), Mushrooms, Artichokes, Spinach, Kale (leafy greens add last)

I used these veggies, but you can use any veggies you have and as much as you want.

Garlic powder, Onion powder, Kelp seasoning, Spike seasoning, Ground cayenne pepper, to taste (I just use whatever types of spices I like and have)

In a frying pan add a little oil, with the onions, red pepper, broccoli and sauté until brown (about a couple of minutes) add mushrooms, artichokes and Cous Cous (around 2-5 minutes). Add the spices around this time and a little water if needed, then add the greens last. Cook until the greens are wilted.

The neat thing about this recipe is you can change the veggies, beans and the grain to what ever you want or have in the kitchen.

Raw Marinara Sauce

Saturday, October 02, 2010

Raw Marinara Sauce

Red Pepper
Some Sun Dried Tomatoes
Olive Oil
Black Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Basil, Oregano, Garlic, Salt, Kelp Seasoning

This is the basic recipe that I use 2-3 roma tomatoes, around half a red pepper and whatever spices I have. I buy the sun dried tomatoes that are not in oil and soak them for around several hours. Chop everything up and blend in the blender. I have added carrots and onion also.

I love to put this on top of roasted spaghetti squash. I have also tried it on zucchini spaghetti.

A bunch of spinach, kale (or any greens) torn up into small pieces
½ red pepper (or any other pepper color)

¼ cup olive oil
Balsamic vinegar to taste (any type vinegar)
