Eggless Custard

Eggless Custard

6
By Heidemarie Swanepoel This was a staple dish many years ago, as a meal, or as a soup, and sometimes sweetened as a pudding. We enjoy it as a custard served with fruit or another pudding, or as a meal on a cold winters night. Ingredients: 4 cups milk 1/2 cup sugar (or to taste) 2-3 tablespoons [...]
Chipotle Chicken Kababs

Chipotle Chicken Kebabs

8
Here is one flaming hot recipe. I have been trying to imitate Chipotle Mexican Grill’s chicken for quite some time. Although this may not be the exact same thing, but it comes quite close – only slightly hotter. Since I like hot food and usually am never too embarrassed of putting Tobasco/Tapatío [...]
Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup (Reduced Fat)

4
I am a big fan of Panera Bread’s Broccoli Cheddar soup. Although I usually prefer lowfat/or at least reduced fat soups, I usually can’t resist this soup on a cold (even rainy) afternoon. I have tried a few recipes from different sources and all were way too rich. So I made few changes, increased [...]
Cherry Jelly on Chocolate Mousse

Cherry Jelly on Chocolate Mousse

0
By Heidemarie Swanepoel I wanted a decadent pudding that smells of kilojoules, but is not fattening. Is that possible? Yes!!!!! My inspiration for this desert comes from the decadent German Black Forest Cherry Cake. The jelly is light, the mousse is light and semi-rich, and the ice-cream is [...]
Carrot Raita

Lemon Rice with Carrot Raita

7
This is yet another favorite dish that I make when I have leftover rice on hand and (as usual) I am in a hurry to put together a delicious yet healthy meal. This version of Lemon Rice is based on traditional South Indian flavors although I am not sure if I always follow the tradition religiously [...]
Banana and Date Smoothie

Banana and Date Smoothie

By Heidemarie Swanepoel I wanted a quick breakfast replacement this morning, and decided on a delicious smoothie. Smoothies can be made from any fruit combination you can dream up, but while some are very tasty and refreshing, not all are efficient hunger busters, if you need a meal replacement. [...]

Khichdi is a popular dish all over India specially Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Bengal. It is usually made with rice and lentils (there are several variations using different types of lentils) as a base and vegetables such as carrots, cauliflower, peas, sqash, spinach, potatoes, etc. are added in [...]
Quick Chinese Vegetable Fried Rice

Quick Chinese Vegetable Fried Rice

4
Here is a 15 minute meal that tastes great and is loaded with great stuff- assortment of vegetables, garlic and rice. This recipe is based on ‘Indian style Chinese’ food we get in local fast food/restaurants in India and I am sure is different than any traditional Chinese fried rice recipe. But [...]
Fish Cakes

Fish Cakes

4
By Heidemarie Swanepoel A very easy, healthy meal to serve, either with toast for a quick lunch, or as a filling for a sandwich, or even together with mashed potatoes and salad as a main meal. This recipe is as versatile as it is delicious. Using the correct fish ensures you are getting your daily [...]
Coconut Chocolate Fudge

Easy Coconut Chocolate Fudge

1
I just made this fudge for easter tomorrow. I was out the entire day and did not get any time to prepare for tomorrow. So I just whipped a batch of this fudge with a handful of ingredients. I like chocolate with coconut (Almond Joy is one of my favorites) and since I had sweetened coconut flakes [...]
