Hey folks!
Do any of you know any fun recepies for a person following a diet?
I've been on a diet for about... three or four weeks now and I'm starting to get tired of always eating the same things.
(FYI, I can't eat dary, can't eat carbs, can't fry anything and can only use like one spoonful of oil to cook, can't have any dressings and can't eat sugar nor butter at all. I can eat plenty of veggies and meat like twice a week)

Alton Brown has some really good soup recipes you should check out. Also he just has amazing recipes in general you should look at. I know he has a vegetarian soup featuring kale and white beans. It does all for a parmesan rind, but that is easily cut out making it vegan friendly. I can't for the life of me remember what is called though.

Hello! Does anyone know how to make hummus? I love it! But here in Argentina it's kind of hard to get so I was thinking maybe I can try making it if that's even possible? Is it simple enough? Also, is it... er.... fattening?
If anyone knows the answer to all or any of those questions I'll be really thankful! :D

I could be totally off-base with this, but I feel like AlexanderDitto has talked about making it?

Which I realize doesn't answer anything, but I have nothing useful to contribute. :P

I know nothing about if it's fattening. There is oil in it yes, but you can use really good oil and replace some with your flavoring.

Hummus:

Chickpeas (canned is easiest) Also look for Garbonzo beans if you can't find chick peas. They are actually the same thing.
Tahini (Sesame seed paste)
Olive oil (or flavored oils work well too)
Salt
Lemon
Flavorings (I love lots of garlic/roasted garlic in mine, you can also use sun dried tomatoes, roasted red pepper, parsley, etc)

You need a food processor for this. 1 large can of chickpeas, about 2 tbsp. tahini, pinch of salt, and your flavor. Buzz in food processor and add olive oil until you like the consistency. Use a really good fruity olive oil for this. You will taste it, so best to break out the good stuff.


Bonus: Chocolate chip cookie dough hummus
Chick peas
Peanut butter
Syrup/honey (Agave syrup, honey, maple syrup, you choose)
Tasteless oil (I still like olive oil for this though)
Chocolate chips

Buzz everything in the food processor, except the chocolate chips. Using the same rough amounts as above. just keep tasting until you like it.
Stir in the chocolate chips by hand and serve with fresh fruit. It's a healthy snack, but looks like you're eating cookie dough.

Edit: Googled it, you can use water in place of oil, though the mouth feel may be a little different.

Yay! Thank you so much! I have everything I need to make it at home actually (except for the tahini, which I will have to buy) though I might buy more sun dried tomatoes.
Yum!

When I was living in Chile we made hummus but forgot to include the oil and used garlic instead of tahini for flavouring. It still tasted good but it had a different, drier texture to usual hummus.

Baked my birthday cake today!

Kind of proud of it even though I know it doesn't look remotely professional, but it's my first experiment with this particular (vegan) recipe.

Was chaos.

My buttercream icing turned to toffee.
The cake broke up into tectonic plates.
The replacement buttercream icing was slap-dash.

Tastes nice though.

I know how to make a Halloween cake if I ever need to. Oh, and raspberry toffee.

I don't usually post pictures of things I've made, but this time I'm especially proud of myself.
I made a 7 course dinner for my brothers 30th birthday.

Tonight I made what is becoming my typical Sunday dinner - roast vegetables and pan fried salmon. I just slice up some potatoes, a carrot and an onion and roast them in the oven for an hour with olive oil, sea salt and whole cloves of garlic. I don't fry the salmon with any seasoning or oil. Simple sometimes is best.

Here's a traditional Acadian recipe that my family makes. It's called "Rappie Pie" (pronounced "roppy pie") - from the French "râpé" ("grated") referring to the grated potatoes that make up the majority of the dish.

This is basically the Acadian national dish, and there are variations all through Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. This variety is specifically from the "French Shore" of Nova Scotia, near Yarmouth, where my mother's side of the family is from.

Word of warning... it is not a very pretty dish. It looks very unappetizing - like snot, really - but it's delicious.

Anyway, I asked Ian if he'd like the recipe last night during TTSF, and said I'd post it on the forums. So here it is!

Rappie Pie

Ingredients:

• 15 lbs of potatoes (big and starchy, Idahos preferred)
• 1 whole chicken or other fowl
• Some chicken quarters with bones (legs and thighs – dark, fatty meat – necessary)
• 9 onions (strong, yellow cooking onions)
• 1 carrot
• 1 stalk of celery
• Salt pork belly
• Salt to taste
• Pepper to taste
• Butter
• Two large, rectangular, disposable aluminum casserole pans

Directions:

• Peel carrot, trim celery stalk, and roughly chop onions
• Boil carrot, celery stalk, onions, and chicken in the largest pot of water you can manage – you’re making chicken stock, and will need to make at least 16 cups
• Season with salt and pepper to taste
• After the stock is made, remove the carrot and celery. Discard
• Remove the meat, debone it, and shred/cut it into bite-sized pieces it. Set it aside
• Strain the stock to remove any chicken bones. Discard them, but be sure to retain the boiled onions. Place them to the side
• Return the pot of stock to the stovetop, and keep it warm. Do not boil it yet, as you don’t want it to boil off
• Peel the potatoes and leave them in a sink full of cold water
• Grate the potatoes. You can grate them by hand, but this will take forever (if you grate them by hand, you will need to squeeze the juice out of them using cheesecloth). It’s better to use a vegetable juicer – preferably a model that centrifuges the pulp. The idea here is to remove the juice (and thus the starch) from your potatoes, leaving the pulp as dry as possible. Retain the pulp in a bowl, and note the amount of juice you remove from it before discarding the juice. Noting the amount of juice you get from your potatoes is very important
• Once all your potatoes are grated or juiced, bring your chicken stock to a boil. Pre-heat your oven to 325 F
• Add the boiling stock, 2 cups at a time, to the potato pulp. After each addition of stock, mix well and vigorously. You are using the hot stock to scald the potato pulp. The total amount of stock you are adding is at least the same as the amount of potato juice you removed and noted. The general idea is that you have removed the liquid from the potatoes, and are now replacing that liquid with chicken stock. Note: often you will need to add 2-4 cups of stock more than the exact amount of potato juice you removed – you are looking for your potatoes to turn a grey, translucent colour. You may also add more stock if you prefer a runnier finished dish. Note: when ladling the stock from the pot, dig deep. The seasoning accumulates at the bottom of the pot; you want that in your potatoes. I usually use a small saucepan as a ladle, transfer the stock into a heat-resistant Pyrex measuring cup, then use that to add two cups of stock to the grated potatoes
• After you have added your stock and scalded your potatoes, you may notice larger chunks of potato slices in your bowl. Feel free to remove and discard those. While not strictly necessary, it does help create a more consistent finished dish
• Mix your cooked onions into your scalded potatoes
• Grease your pans with butter
• Half-fill your pans with potatoes, cover with chicken, then cover with remaining potatoes
• Cut pork belly into 12 pieces. Push the pieces into potatoes at regular intervals, six per pan
• Dot potatoes with butter
• Place pans in pre-heated oven for 1 ½ to 2 hours. The tops of the pies should be browned
• When finished, serve slices either as-is or topped with a pat of butter and some fancy molasses

If anyone ever takes a crack at making it, I'd love to hear about it!

I can confirm that Rappie Pie is delicious, and I have seen old ladies nearly come to blows over the proper way to make it.

It's a "big deal" in small towns across the maritimes.

Ha! Yeah, that sounds right. All my aunts get really weird when they talk about it. It's their favourite thing ever.

And, yes, there's a lot of "You do it that way? That's stupid!" with it. Ah, traditions...

I made Pumpkin cookies! Vegan ones and not so vegan ones (made the not so vegan ones such by adding butterscotch chips). It was an experiment in food and was given the 5 star by my youngest son. Pictures once they're all baked and the older one gets to try them. Gotta make sure he approves as well.

Cookies got eaten before pictures could be taken :( :cry:

I made Rice Krispie Squares; except I used Reese Puffs instead of Rice Krispies and they weren't square. Not sure what to call them. Reese... marshy... amorphouses.
Here's where the picture would go, if it wasn't so blurry. Anyway, they looked really gross while they were cooling off. The marshmallow slime got all stringy and it looked like an egg mass from some creature with the wrong number of any appendage you'd care to name.
They were quite tasty.

I have a better, clearer, macro pic I'll be posting to insta tomorrow along with a link to the recipe, but yeah, the candlelight doesn't do it much justice. :D I'll crosspost here when I get to it. Along, I guess, with the salad I made today, for actual content. :P
