At any rate, here's the round up of the new recipes I've tried in the last couple of weeks:
|Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes|
|Vegan Red Beans & Rice for 2|
And, last, but not least Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach, Apples and Walnuts from the Quick-fix vegetarian cookbook by Robin Robertson. This is only my second recipe using quinoa, so I wasn't really sure. Turns out, it's quite tasty. And, it makes a lot. I'm one person, so I'll definitely halve it when I do it again. While the recipe says four servings, I used a cup for a serving (which is plenty) and found that I got more like 6 servings. A "serving" of quinoa is two ounces so if one goes with the four servings that would be three ounces of quinoa plus the additions per serving. I did calculate calories and it's not what I'd call low calorie, but it's not outrageous. Of course, some of those calories come from the oil used for the scallions and walnuts and apples. Still, I'm enjoying the leftovers (as did a friend) and will more than likely cook this recipe again.
