Peanut, Sunflower and Carrot Salad

Date tried: March 23, 2018
Yield: as needed
Time needed: 15-20 minutes

Quick to put together, especially if you use a blender or food processor to grate the carrots. Looks lovely too. Nuts and/or seeds add protein content as well as taste. The pineapple is a great addition.

Mild Vegetable and Meat Combo

Source: The Recipe of Love
Date tried: January 25, 2018
Yield: 8-10 servings
Time needed: 1 hour

I think I spent twice as much time chopping and slicing the vegetables as I did on cooking this dish. The actual time at the stove is about 20 minutes and you need to have all your ingredients on hand for quick work. For me, it was also an unusual process. But the finished dish is well worth the making of it.

Basic Vegetable Stock

Date tried: March 26, 2014
Yield: 8-10 cups
Time needed: 3 hours

This is a lovely vegetarian stock, very simple to make.  After the initial sautéing, just allow to simmer, then strain.  The stock can be used as a base for sauces and soups or for cooking grains.  It is also good as a light first course with bread.

Indian Style Green Beans

Source: Whole Foods for the Whole Family
Date November 28, 2017
Yield:5 servings
Time needed: approx. 25 minutes

On its own, it does not seem particularly “Indian” though it would certainly fit into an Indian-themed meal. And will grace almost any meal. Definitely worth trying, with perhaps more than the tiny hint of ginger suggested.
