New! Fantastic! Best in Taste! AFC SPOON FILLS – 6 bites to freedom | #AFC International

FOLLOW THE MONEY BUNNY…RIGHT HERE

#FAT-FREE CHEF

Do you think it’s time to put the whole world on a diet? I think so.

The world, the whole world, needs to stop eating animals.

Everybody – adults, children, and other animals too. We need to find a way to feed the carnivorous animals on the planet plant food. We can do it with the will.

We need to replace animal with plant.

It’s a lot easier and cost efficient to grow plants, than it is to birth and raise animals. It doesn’t make any logical sense to do anything but. So there’s a drought, the plants dry up and we eat our family?

That’s where we are right now? We’re eating our families, so the conditions of the earth must be in dire straits?

We’re all animals. We need to take care of each other, firstly, by not cooking each other. Why are we cooking animals? When plants…

Steve’s Perfect Broth Sauce

STEVE'S MUSHROOM WINE SAUCE 2

STEVE’S PERFECT BROTH SAUCE

Steve likes to use ingredients I call dodads – gourmet type items he finds at the market – stuff that’s fun to buy, unique stuff like garlic in a tube, herb paste in a tube etc. I’ll tell ya, he had an uncanny sense of what goes with what, since this sauce, more like a rich broth with solids, turned my head for sure! I ran to get my pad and pen to write down the ingredients while still fresh in his mind – this is it, one of the finest broth-type sauces I’ve ever tasted!

Makes 7-1/2 cups

Red Rice by Lotus Foods – my new favorite rice

 

RED RICE by LOTUS FOODS

This is the first time making or tasting red rice. Although they state that the rice can be used in any dish calling for rice, I discovered another use unrelated to rice – as a hamburg substitute in chili. Looks like hamburg, textured closely like cooked hamburg, so I’m going to give it a try to see what happens.  Results to come in another post!

IMPERIAL CHICKEN SALAD

Not your run of the mill chicken salad!

DONKEY BEAN SAUCE

DONKEY BEAN SAUCE 

You can’t really taste the tomato or the beans or the pumpkin or the sesame seeds – not distinctly. Even the texture throws you off for a bean sauce. Nobody will connect this sauce to beans – unless they are a bean aficionado. No one ingredient commandeers the recipe. Brilliant strategy!

Makes 4 cups sauce

Stewed Tomato Bean Pot – cooking with large cans

STEWED TOMATO BEAN POT 5

Today we’re cooking primarily with cans – restaurant-size cans for restaurant or home use.

We’ve selected the following: I’m going to give you the brand along with the ingredients and size can, just to give the people who produced the product some credit for a job well done.

102 oz. can Dunbar’s Sweet Bell Pepper Mixed Strips (mixed means multi-colored – they contain 0 fat and 0 sodium so of course are packed in water)

102 oz. can Gordon CHOICE Sliced Stewed Tomatoes (contains 0 fat)

117 oz. can BUSH’S Bean Pot Vegetarian Baked Beans (contains 0 fat)



1st RECIPE

STEWED TOMATO BEAN POT 1

STEWED TOMATO BEAN POT

Vegetarian baked beans mixed with caramelized red onion, multi-colored pepper strips, stewed tomatoes, green beans and carrot matchsticks. A light-flavored and colored sesame seed oil teamed with Balsamic vinegar and garlic create the rich foundation that brings together all ingredients, elevating them in one simple yet elegant main dish.

Makes 11 cups

1/4 c. light colored sesame oil

3 med. size red onion, sliced (cut off ends, cut in half from end to end, peel each half, place each half face down on board, cut each lengthwise from end to end into 1/4 inch wide strips, separate layers)

1 t. pink Himalayan salt

fresh grind black pepper

2 c. bell pepper strips with a little liquid from the can (a couple tablespoons)

3 c. stewed tomato slices with about 1/4 liquid from the can – transfer to bowl where you will cut the slices into smaller pieces

2 t. garlic powder

1 t. additional pink salt

4 c. beans with liquid

1/4 c. Balsamic vinegar

2 c. froz. cut green beans

1 c. fresh carrot matchsticks (peel carrots, cut off ends, slice into thin planks, stack planks, cut into thin sticks – remember, matchstick-size)

pumpkin seed snow as garnish (optional) – grind salted raw pumpkin seeds in coffee grinder till snow-like

additional fresh cut matchstick carrots (optional)

a drizzle of sesame seed oil (optional)

fresh black pepper grind (optional)


In large pot, over medium heat, melt sesame oil. Add onions and salt, then saute till wilted. Pepper to taste. Stir often to prevent burning.

Add 2 c. pepper strips with a little liquid from can. Stir.

Add the cut stewed tomatoes with a little juice from can, garlic powder and salt. Stir well. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring as needed.

Add beans followed by Balsamic vinegar and green beans. Stir well. Cook 3-5 minutes or till very hot.

Add carrot matchsticks. Stir to submerge. Cook all on lowered heat, uncovered, for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and adjust for salt and pepper.

Serve family-style, in individual bowls as is, or perk it up a little by topping with pumpkin seed snow, additional fresh cut matchstick carrots, a drizzle of sesame oil and sprinkling of fresh grind black pepper.

Notes: An elegant tasting dish need not require many ingredients, steps nor hours to prepare. Yes, beans can be elegant. Rich too.

RED ONION SLICED LENGTHWISE


1st RECIPE completed and we still have lots of contents in all three cans left to make another dish.

To keep costs down restaurants like to use the same main ingredients in several dishes, then vary the peripheral ingredients, seasonings and procedures to create dishes for different categories.

This is a low fat dish. 1/4 cup oil = 120 cal./T. x 4 = 480 fat calories to a 11 cup recipe yield = 43.6 fat calories per cup.
