  1. I made this soup last night because my family were having Felafels and the spices and smells were getting to me. My post op soups so far have been as bland as all get out. I was a little worried it would be too thick but- hooray- it went through the straw! Moroccan lentil soup. (makes enough for at least three days). Use about half a cup to three quarters of a cup of red lentils, rinsed. Half packet Master Foods Moroccan Lamb Shanks slow cooker mix (important: NOT THE SPICE BLEND, this is more like a paste) 2 cups water About 1/4 cup finely grated tasty cheese (mmm: cheeeeese) (I used Elbo- style cheese: like a matured cheddar)(I used a microplane grater, but any 'parmesan' size grater will do) Hummus dip to taste (there was about a soup spoonful left in the packet after my family had finished with it). Boil water in a small saucepan. Add lentils and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer (covered) for about 20 minutes. The lentils should be nice and mushy. Simmer uncovered for about another10 minutes, being careful not to let it dry out and burn on the bottom (just add more water). Add in about half the packet of lamb shank mix and stir. Add in the cheese and mix to melt it in. Throw in the left over hummus dip to taste. Stir until well-combined. Hit it with the stick mixer until it is liquid (add extra water if you need to) enough to get through a straw. Yummy yummy yummy. And healthy!

    Green Onion Soup :)

    I'm back on the wagon, and one of my staples is a good soup that you can grab quickly instead of something sweet, which always makes me want more sweeties! This will yield about 6-8 serves (or cups) of delicious soup, and the entire lot has 1 tsp of low salt stock, and 1 tbsp of olive oil. There are some optional veg in there. I use them all because they add a certain 'creaminess' to the soup, in place of actual cream! Ingredients 1 green capsicum 1 medium zuchini (optional) 1 whole bunch of spring onions 1 long green chili 1 red/white/brown onion 1 medium head of brocolli (optional) 1 tsp of low salt massall chicken stock 1 tbsp of olive oil cumin coriander turmeric garlic (optional) chili cracked pepper cracked salt (optional) Method: Roast green cap under grill, wrap in foil and set aside. Chop off roots of spring onion, and chop remaining onion finely. Chop other onion finely. Add oil to soup pan and fry all onion off, adding water when oil begins to be absorbed Add green chili, cut in half lengthwise only (this is because the skin will soften as you cook it and you can peel it off the chili before you blend the soup) Add chopped zucchini and broccoli and fresh garlic (all optional) Continue stirring all veg until softened, then add spices to taste (normally x2 tsp of corriander and cumin, and 1 of tumeric, garlic and 1/2 chili powder ) De-seed roast green cap and add pieces. Simmer for about 15-30 mins, topping up water very slightly if needed. Allow to cool slightly and whizz in a blender. You will end up with a lovely green onion-y soup which is filling, tasty and with virtually no fat. I don't add any more salt to the soup, except perhaps a crack on top of it just before you eat it (I have learned this is a way to stop yourself adding unnecessary salt as you get the immediate hit of salt if you add it just before you eat!) Enjoy!

    Vegetarian Chow Mein

    Vegetarian Chow Mein Large 1/4 cabbage (400g) 2 spring onions Small tin of bean sprouts 2ish cups of water 1 tsp soy sauce 1 chicken stock cube Pepper Curry powder Slice up spring onions and saute in large saucepan with 1/4 cup of water and soy sauce until most of the liquid has cooked off. Add shredded cabbage, bean sprouts, stock cube, pepper and curry powder to taste, plus 1/2 cup of water. Mix well. Bring to boil and turn down to simmer with lid on. Check it every 10 minutes or so, adding another 1/2 cup of water as needed so it doesn't dry out. Continue cooking like this for about 45 minutes, or until the cabbage is nice and soft. This made 5 serves (about 140g each). Lunch or dinner for 5 days ! I would have also added a small tin of water chestnuts but I didn't have any. This would have padded it out to 6 serves.
  4. Hello, Just sharing another recipe I create last night for dinner. Now, I'm not a vegetarian but I was trying to decrease the calories and incorporate more vegies into my meals, so I gave it a go. I made the sauce how i would normally make spag bol, i just added extra vegetables instead of the mince. The measurements are approximate of course, add what you want according to your own taste, but I was quite surprised at how flavoursome and delicious it was without mince in the mix! Even the best carnivores can't deny how yummy this is! Ingredients - 1 Packet Slim Pasta (spaghetti) - 1 tin crushed tomatoes - 1 jar bolognese sauce (I used a red wine and garlic one) - 1 brown onion, finely diced - 1 carrot, grated - 1 large or 2 small red capsicums, diced - 1/2 large zucchini, grated (I would add a couple of sliced mushrooms if I had any...) - minced garlic (to your taste, I used about 2-3 teaspoons) - chilli (again, to your taste, I used about a teaspoon) - sprinkling of "mixed herbs" or "spag bol" herbs. - low fat grated cheese or chopped parsley to garnish Directions 1. Saute the dice onions in a frying/saucepan on med-high heat until transparent. 2. Add the carrot, capsicum and zucchini. Saute until they begin to soften. 3. Add the tin of tomatoes and half the jar of pasta sauce. Stir thoroughly and simmer for a few minutes. 4. Add the herbs, garlic and chilli according to your own taste buds. (not too much chilli, just enough for a little kick!) 5. Prepare the Slim Pasta according to the packet. Put the pasta into the vegie sauce and mix it all in so the pasta absorbs as much flavour as possible. 6. Serve in bowls (or plates i guess) with a sprinkling of chopped parsley or cheese if you prefer. P.S. Have just included a photo of the Slim Pasta for those that don't know what it looks like. Took me a while to find it but I found it in the health food section of Woolies. They're really more like noodles than pasta.

    Cajun Vegie Patties (Vegetarian)

    Hello, Just whipped up something amazing in my kitchen with leftover vegies and had to share. Its a vegetarian recipe, but not for vegans avoiding all animal products. You'll need/I used: 2 small potatoes 1 carrot 1 zucchini 4 eggs handful of extra sharp parmasan cheese handful or two of breadcrumbs sprinkling of Cajun (hot) Seasoning to taste salt and pepper What I did: - Grated the potato, carrot and zucchini into a bowl. Don't bother peeling them, all the goodness is in the skin anyway. - Over the sink, squeeze handfuls of this mixture to get as much juice/moisture out as you can. - Add the eggs. Stir until combined. (Add more or less eggs accordingly). - Stir in the cheese and breadcrumbs. (You could also leave the breadcrumbs out of the mix and crumb the patties prior to cooking, like a vegie schnitzel?) - Finally add all seasoning to taste and stir in. - Heat some oil (I use Rice Bran Oil) to shallow fry them until dark golden brown and crispy on the outside! Note: This amount does make about 8-10 good sized patties. I don't know how they would freeze? so maybe best to half the ingredients or save it for a family dinner/lunch? Otherwise they are fine in the fridge for a snack the next day. They make great burger patties, topped with salad. I also threw in some tuna leftover in the fridge at the end of the mix and they taste great too! Enjoy!

    Mexican Quinoa Soup

    Just found this amazing looking recipe and have sent my other half down to the shops for some vos and peppers .... I know what I'm haing for dinner!! http://www.preventionrd.com/2011/12/meatless-monday-quinoa-mexican-soup-vegan/ Peace VM
  8. I don't know about anyone else but since having my last fill I am having to re-evaluate everything I eat as many things that I could eat beforehand now 'stick'. However, I LOVE me a good mug of soup on a freezing winter's day, and this has been a great opportunity to try out some new recipes. As I'm a veggo (former vegan but breast feeding so have gone back to eating a little dairy), I have to make sure I get enough protein with each meal. Quinoa is AMAZING, absorbs flavours so well, and is brilliant for veggos seeking protein and calcium. So without further ado, here's the recipe, adapted from savvyvegetarian.com (credit where credit's due) 1/2 cup quinoa 1/2 cup brown lentils Olive oil to fry off onions and garlic 1 large chopped carrot 1 cup of cubed pumpkin 1 large chopped zuchinni 1 bay leaf 1/2 tsp cinammon 1/2 brown onion 2 cloves fresh/minced garlic 1 tsp fresh/minced ginger 1 green chili finely chopped 1 tsp gr cumin 1 tsp turmeric 1 tsp paprika 1 tsp gr coriander 1 tsp dried basil 1 tsp dried rosemary 1 tsp salt or to taste and fresh ground black pepper AND white pepper 1 litre HOT water Fry off onions and garlic with salt, then add cubed pumpkin, zuchinni and carrot until they are slightly softer. Add all other spices and continue stirring for a few more minutes. Add the hot water and bring soup to the boil. Add the quinoa and brown lentils and boil for a further 5 minutes, then turn soup down to simmer until lentils are cooked though. You may like to add more water if you like a thinner soup. Enjoy!

    Vegetarians

    Are there any vegetarians in this community? I have become a vege about a year ago and now that I'm getting serious about my band again I'm wondering how others have coped with band and vege diet.
