Peanut Butter Cookies

This one is so easy it's ridiculous, but man, they're good!

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine:
1 cup smooth peanut butter (use a good natural one that doesn't contain hydrogenated oil or sugar)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup mashed banana
1 teaspoon baking soda

Roll tablespoonfuls of dough. Place on baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Flatten with the tines of a fork twice, making a cross-hatch pattern. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are just starting to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

The banana gives the cookies a little extra flavor, which I love. Or if you'd rather, use 1 large egg in place of the banana. Or use prepared egg replacer, which is mostly potato starch so the cookies come out sandy and somewhat dry. The banana version is my favorite.

funkil, it's good to experiment before finding one's place on the alternate-dietary wheel.

My vegetarian/low gluten diet is not extreme. I still consume dairy and fish/shell fish. The choices are infinite; with some creative interchange, one does not have to feel deprived.

I just enjoyed a nice little Good Friday lunch: A Mexican tuna melt. Tuna, cheddar, and tequilia-lime salsa on Corn Thins. Corn Thins are versatile and gluten free. They are made in Australia, but there is a wide distributor base in Canada.

R2T, you could replace the sugar with Splenda to make it diabetic-friendly. Thanks - will try!

How cool that this topic has come up here on the forums. I thought I was the only vegetarian with an Airstream in the universe. Nice to know there are birds of a feather here. My husband Nick and I eat vegetarian most of the time with occasional fish. I have tons of great Airstream-easy vegetarian recipes to share. Here is my vegan breakfast mess but it can be used for lunch or dinner.

Quinoa Zucchini Hash

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
2 packets of Swanson flavor boost veggie concentrate
1 zucchini thinly sliced
1 tomato chopped
2 garlic cloves mashed
handful of walnut pieces
Mrs. Dash table blend seasoning
olive oil
Bragg's Liquid aminos seasoning (or soy sauce)

Make the quinoa according to the package directions in a small saucepan with lid, adding the broth packets to the water.

Saute over high heat the garlic, zucchini, tomato and nuts in oil. Allow to brown before turning. Sprinkle with Mrs. Dash seasoning.

Add a cup or two of quinoa, fresh ground pepper and serve. Sprinkle with Bragg's aminos. Yum.

This is the kind of recipe you can make on the camp stove outside the Airstream too. You can also change the veggies depending on what you just bought from the farmers market, or use different nuts, like pecan, pine, or peanuts.

If you haven't tried quinoa (pronouned keen-wa) what are you waiting for? It's GREAT.

Sounds yummy! I love quinoa! Full of protein and very good. I'll give this a try

You can always get 2 slices of bread...and spread grape jelly on one piece and peanut butter on the other slice....then press together!!


But, don't forget the bacon on the side...lol

Can a Vegetarian Get Her Money's Worth at a $90 Buffet?

Recently attended a $90/person fundraiser featuring a buffet. Since going on this vegetarian gluten/sugar-free gig, I was curious as to how that would pan out with the food choices. (I do eat fish though). Is this getting boring?

Standing in line holding my cold plate like something out of Oliver Twist (boy, was I hungry) the first part of the buffet was a bit disappointing. Anticipating a good load-up on salads, they did not offer much of a selection. The usual raw veggies and dip platter, a mixed green salad, another salad featuring a medley of artichokes and peppers, and an Asian-style coleslaw with a sweet and sour dressing (usually loaded with sugar). There was also the huge pasta salad - caterers are big on this because they are relatively cheap - with some kind of chopped meat. So, loaded up on the raw veggies, the green salad, and a spoonful of the artichoke/pepper medley.

There was a big wooden crate filled with artisan buns. As tempting as they were, I had to pass, remembering how gluten sits in the stomach like a great wad of raw dough. The carnivore beside me passed on everything. "The good stuff is at the other end." Well, maybe for him. Would there be anything I could eat? This might be one expensive plate of salad! (Yes, I know it's a fundraiser, but you still want to get some of your hard-earned money's worth in the food department).

However, after the lukewarm salad section, what awaited did not.

Holy cow.....or should I say, holy salmon! There was a huge platter of smoked salmon. What a delicacy. One of my favourites...as I piled a few slices onto the plate with a squeeze of fresh lemon.

Moving on down, now we're into the hot section. Rice, roasted potatoes, and a big silver chafing dish of broccoli, carrots, and celery. I passed on the starch - am also watching my carbs - but the vegetables were nice and crisp. I used to think of celery as something best raw, but it is really good slightly cooked. So, I plucked out a lot of celery.

Next....skewers of Tandori chicken. They looked good, but I passed on those with no regrets - remembering how my last chicken craving tasted funny - like cage cleaner. Not surprising, considering non-organic chicken is dunked into bleach during processing.

Beyond the chicken, another seafood jackpot. More skewers featuring more salmon, scallops, and the biggest prawns glistening in a butter-dill baste. I loaded the plate up with two of those.

Crowning the head of the table was the perfunctory baron of beef, medium rare. Another old favourite, but I have truly lost my taste for meat. But...carnivore heaven for that guy beside me. This was the first time he smiled.

The seafood skewers were fantastic. Fresh off the boat, and not overcooked. It's easy to dry-out seafood, especially when it's on a skewer, but the chef had them done to perfection. The smoked salmon was great. The salads were typical, but fresh and crisp.

The dessert table featured a huge selection of fresh fruit. I loaded my dessert plate with sun-kissed Calilfornia strawberries and melon. Always a treat for any pale winter-weary Canadian.

So, all-in-all I survived this forray down the buffet highway without hitting any potholes. I did not feel deprived or cheated.

The road to Wellville continues.

Glad you made it through. Buffets and pot lucks can be a disaster—sometimes I can't figure our what something is and what is in it, and many times there is little for me to eat. I avoid them. We live in a rural area where there are many potlucks and I usually eat beforehand. One of the 5 food groups here seems to be marshmallows.

Gene, lol! Know exactly what you're saying there, babe. Me thinks a lot of those marshmallows will be consumed today via "Ambrosia Salad." Marshmallows, canned mandarins, pineapple and maraschino cherries in whipping cream. Mom used to serve this with her Easter ham along with the green bean/mushroom soup/ dried-onion casserole. The kind of fare that sure fattened me up as a kid.

Another staple from mom's kitchen was "Purple Haze." More marshmallows dissolved with Welch's grape juice. This was developed long before Jimi Hendrix started strumming, so nothing was added that would launch you into delirium (unless you were diabetic). The result: something resembling a congealed varicose vein.

I feel your pain.

When my baby boy was dating a vegitarian a couple of years ago I developed Clean out the garden baked veggies. Layers of potatoes, sliced onions, sliced peppers, sliced eggplant all sprinkled with fresh herbe, salt and pepper, olive oil and covered with foil and set on the grill. It tasted better than the meat I was cooking. Sal.

We aren't vegan or vegetarian but we eat healthy and organic. Daughter is gluten free and lactose challenged, so we look at food differently. I don't do meat or cheese, dh doesn't do cheese or most condiments incl mayo,,sour cream, vinegars....
Soo....we do mostly fresh food. Although we are newbies, I was looking for ideas that would not be too complicated . But here's my first contribution.
My go to recipe is simple.:
En papiollote. Or how I like it: in foil....on the BBQ!

Prep is easy. Cut up veggies, herbs, fish or chicken, lemon, maybe a little wine or broth. Wrap it up and put it on the grill or above the fire. Perfect. Fresh, organic, healthy. You really don't need a true recipe.

Sweet potatoes wrapped in foil on the grill. Fruit grilled ...nectarines and peaches. Perfect.

Now bad weather rescues: taco night, soups, salads. And good old PB and j. Looooove quinoa ...been eating it for years. Great protein and you can mix anything in it! Also trader joes vacuum packaged lentils are great. Mix in tomatoes and cukes...spices and balsamic...awesome quickie. Throw in any veggies.
