Garden Vegetable Quiche

Posted on June 28, 2010. Filed under: Athletic, Healthy Recipes | Tags: , , , , , |


Making this quiche is a great way to get your protein and vegetables all in one. I intended to put in a cup of goat cheese (which is a cheese I can eat without being lactose intolerant) but couldn’t find any in time so I used cheddar instead. I didn’t use a full cup of cheddar by any means because I wanted to be able to eat the dish without worrying too much but I suggest putting in the full cup. Also, I think the dish would have benefitted if I added maybe a ¼ tsp of salt or so in the egg batter. Overall, it was pretty good, but I have high standards (especially when it comes to others trying the recipe).

 


 

Serves 9

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups egg substitute
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup soy milk
  • ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 8 oz cottage cheese
  • 4 cups sliced zucchini
  • 2 cups diced raw potatoes
  • 3 tbsp diced onion
  • 1 cup finely chopped green bell sweet peppers
  • ½ lb fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup low fat cheese of your choice, shredded, divided

 

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg substitute and eggs until fluffy
  3. Stir in milk, flour, and cottage cheese
  4. Sauté zucchini, potatoes, onions, peppers, and mushrooms in pan coated with cooking spray for 5 min
  5. Stir sautéed veggies mixture and parsley into egg mixture
  6. When well combined, pour into a 3-quart baking dish, light coated with cooking spray.
  7. Top with tomato slices and cheese
  8. Bake 35-40 min or until knife inserted in center comes out clean
  9. Allow to stand for 10 min before slicing

Delicious Stir Fry

Posted on May 9, 2010. Filed under: New Age, Recipes | Tags: , , , , , , , , |


Corrina’s Delicious and Addictive Stir Fry

This is an incredibly flexible dish; you can add/remove ingredients to your taste (or to what you have in the fridge) and it should generally always taste amazing. Honestly, the ingredients are incredibly relative. I prefer LOTS of broccoli and collard greens, but it really just depends on which veggies you love to have stir-fried. The soy sauce and sake are also relative to how much flavor you want in you stir fry (but I suggest using them together). Sometimes I just make a sauce on the side or use a bottled sauce to add flavor later. I suggest you just rifle through the fridge and see what ingredients you have on you and they’ll probably work just fine (unless you’re the type of weirdo with no veggies).

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 or 3 stalks of broccoli (chopped into somewhat large chunks)
  • 1 red bell pepper (cut in quarters and chopped)
  • ½ red onion (chopped into large pieces)
  • Collard greens (leaves separated, stems chopped)
  • Canned bamboo shoots
  • Canned water chestnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2″ long piece of ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

    Other great ingredients for delicious stir fry:

  • Chinese broccoli
  • Broccolini
  • Any bell pepper
  • Any edible type of mushroom
  • Zucchini
  • Carrots
  • Noodles

     

    Directions:

     

  1. Take the broccoli, collard greens stems, red onion, red pepper, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts (both cans drained first) into a medium bowl
  2. Cut the collard green leaves (torn into chunks first), the broccoli head (cut into smaller chunks) into a different medium bowl
  3. Get a wok or large pan out, put olive oil in pan and turn it to medium/high heat
    1. Put the garlic, ginger and if desired, onion in the pan and sauté them until they begin to brown
  4. Put the contents of the medium bowl in the pan and stir occasionally for 5 minutes
  5. Put the contents of the large bowl in the pan and stir occasionally for 1 minute
  6. Put the sake and soy sauce in the pan/wok and stir it in for 2 minutes or so.

    Wow, making a recipe SUCKS! You foodies can have at it, I think I’ll just stick to saying I make amazing stir fry and hopefully I didn’t make a recipe for disaster, but I know that’s how I do it, so it can’t be that bad!
