Best answer:

Mexican Veggie Rollups

This is the version that I eat at least weekly and truly love. I take
the ingredients in snack size zip lock bags and put it all together at the
lunch table.

Fat Free Tortilla ( large ones with flavor are delicious and satisfying)
about 1/3 cup FF refried beans mixed with 1 TBSP chopped green chilies
shredded lettuce
chopped tomatoes
chopped red onion
chopped fresh cilantro

spread tortilla with beans and chilies. On 1/2 of the tortilla, generously
add lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cilantro and top with salsa. Roll up as for a
burrito and enjoy.

Spicy Spoon Size Shreddie Snack :-)
1 tbsp vegetarian worchestershire sauce
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
11/2 tsp salt
11/2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp water
3 cups mini shredded wheat
Mix spices and water. Gently fold in cereal with a fork until covered with
sauce. Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and bake at 250F for 20
min. Let cool 15 min before removing from pan.

Veggie Rollups
Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method
——– ———— ——————————–
1 8-inch wheat-flour tortilla
3 tablespoons low fat hummus
OR bean dip
lettuce leaf
1/2 cup favorite raw veggies — see note
cut into matchstick-size pieces

NOTE: radishes, carrots, zucchini, plum tomatoes, etc.

Crisp mint leaves add an incredibly fresh taste.

On one side of a tortilla, spead hummus or bean dip. Top it off with a
lettuce leaf. Add veggies.

Tightly roll up tortilla. Cut in half. Wrap each half in plastic wrap and
chill up to 6 hours. Makes 2 snack servings

Baked Sweet Potato Pizza
1/2 huge baked sweet potato peeled and sliced into rounds
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup chopped peppers
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped canned artichoaks
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup chopped veg. pepperoni (No fat)
1/2 cup chopped pineapple (optional)
1/4 cup grated skim milk mozarrella (optional)
1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapeno peppers (optional)
1/4 cup fresh basil
1 (or 2) fat free pizza bases

Spread tomato paste on pizza, then arrange all the other ingredients
artistically on top. Cook at 450 F till brown and bubbly. Eat without
burning tongue

Angel Hair Pasta With Onion Sauce
1/2 cup water per person
1 vegetable bouillion cube per person
1 onion per person, chopped
1 clove garlic per person, minced
1 carrot, sliced
Fresh basil, Oregano, and thyme to taste (or dried)
About 8 mushrooms (app. 1/2 of a package?), quartered
Enough Angel Hair Pasta to Satisfy (I usually assume that one 16 oz. package
will feed
3 hungry people)

In a saucepan, put the water, herbs, and the bouillon cube over a medium
heat. When the mixture is bubbling, dump the veggies in. I let the whole
concoction cook for about 15-20 minutes, adding water when the pan begins to
dry up. The longer the onion cooks, the less pungent the taste is. I’ve
done this recipe with all kinds of veggies in place of the the mushrooms and
carrots, so adapt it to your taste.

I suppose, looking at it again, that this recipe would be a bit like the
four-onion sauces that you can find in some Italian restaurants, but without
all of the butter.

This is the way I make mine for Indian style recipes.

2-3 medium sized onions
1teaspoon Fresh Ginger
1-2teaspoons Fresh green chilli
2-3medium sized tomatoes
1/8teaspoon of turmeric powder
1/4teaspoon of red chilli
1/4teasppon of Garam Masala
1/4teaspoon of Salt (actually to taste)

Grate the onions in the food processor. Start sauting the onions.
If you don’t want to use any oil in this step, keep stirring so that onions
don’t stick in the pan.

While the onions are turning into light brown color. Add freshly
chopped ginger and green chilli. Add all the spices and stir. At this point
all the flavors will mingle and to preserve the spiceness of curry you should
cover and let simmer on low for 5 minutes. Add fresh finely chopped (paste)
tomatoes. and cover an let simmer on very low for 15-20 minutes.

Variations : You can add paste of green bell pepper, red bell pepper. (I
always use Fresh). you can also add spinach to give a different color (green
as compares to normal red/yellow). Add Fresh cloves, cinnamon, bay leaves,
pinch of saffron, corriander powder and finally fresh corrinader leaves.

In this curry you can add combination of veggies – cubed potatoes, Cauliflower,
Eggplant, Peas, Indian Paneer (Homemade Cheese).

Serve over rice or with fresh Indian stype bread (Naan, Poori, Paratha).

This is making me hungry now -:)-:)
