Steamed Cabbage Rolls

Steamed Cabbage Rolls by foodlover

Cabbage can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits if you will cook it by steaming. The fiber-related components in cabbage do a better job of binding together with bile acids in your digestive tract when they've been steamed. When this binding process takes place, it's easier for bile acids to be excreted, and…

Simple Sesame Green Beans

Simple Sesame Green Beans by John Spottiswood

I realize that 5 stars is an awfully high rating for such a simple dish. But honestly, I end up eating a pound of green beans every time I make them this way. They end up so tender, and I love the simple flavor created by the sesame seeds and by steaming them in the broth. Depending on what I'm serving them with, I decide whether…

Fried Cabbage....

Fried Cabbage.... by Pyrohy Pusher

A healthy alternative vegetable side dish, or great just as a snack or meal by itself. It's a good cold day "comfort food" that fills the house with a terrific aroma. It's also a good recipe for the slow cooker. My version of this recipe is not fried, but it's also an extremely low fat dish.

The Great Spinach Switch. A Fast Easy Lighter Version Of An Old Favorite by kathy gori

Still getting whipped around by the weather here in Sonoma. We've gone from perfect warm spring weather to hail and rain, to sun lashed by cloudbursts and windy gusts. Last night my little olive tree blew over. Time to replant. This morning it's crisp,…

Got Carrot Salad? Got 20 Minutes?

Got Carrot Salad? Got 20 Minutes? by kathy gori

I love stuff that's fast and easy. These are the recipes that are lifesavers especially when "stuff" happens, for lack of a better word. Dishes that are versatile, and inexpensive to prepare and can be prepared ahead of time are even better. I was looking for that sort of thing this week, after the whole Film Festival craziness and…

Cauliflower Canapés

Cauliflower Canapés by Denise Romeo

Cauliflower is highly under-rated! It is good served hot in casseroles, cold in salad, pickled, or even in soup. The first time my husband made this cauliflower puree, I was skeptical, but now it is one of my very favorite appetizers.

Steamed Stuffed Winter Melon Rolls

Steamed Stuffed Winter Melon Rolls by kitchen flavours

Did you know that winter melon can grow as large as 80cm in length! That's really huge! The one I saw in the market is really big, I bought just a slice, about 5" wide and it already weighs almost 1 kg! Winter melon is popular among the Chinese. It can be used in stir-fries, soups and can be preserved into candied winter melon, which…
