Meatless Chili with Grains

May 3rd, 2014 Posted in Healthy Recipes | no comment »

Meatless Chili

I make the best tasting chili without the meat!

Start out with some grains. I use a mixture. Today I prepare for the week my grains because I use them in different recipes.

GRAINS:  Look for No GMO grains

You cook grains just like rice (the grain most people know about) I use all kinds of grains; quinoa, barley, amaranth, and split peas and lentils (which are legumes) all my favorites! Remember that you need to rinse grains well before cooking to get rid of any stones or critters.

Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

Jul 11th, 2012 Posted in Healthy Foods | no comment »

I love portobello mushrooms. Here is a simple recipe to make a portobello sandwich for lunch.

1 large portobello mushroom

spices: I sprinkle some low sodium soy sauce on both sides of the mushroom, place is frying pan or wok with a spray of cooking oil.

I add spices such as a  garlic clove crushed, or garlic powder. I also add some steamed quinoa with mustard greens for a complete lunch.

You can add any veggies, and saute them with the mushroom for about 15 minutes, turning once. When cooked I add a slice of ” soy cheese.” You can top with any cheese and let the cheese melt.

More on Summer Salads Made with Grains

Here is a recipe for another grain summer salad. I use quinoa because I like it. There are many other types of grains you can use in a summer salad such as barley, amaranth, millet, rice.

In this recipe, I also use tofu. I like the very firm tofu so that I can easily cut it into cubes. Because of the tofu and grains, it is not only packed with fiber, but also with protein to fill you up. When you eat fiber, it stays with you longer than carbohydrates, therefore you do not eat as much.
