Food you MUST try #1

So, here begins my series of favorite recipes (international and local) that I REALLY enjoy making. Youve already seen one of my faves- vegan tamale pie!


This one is soooo NOT vegan but its extremely good and can be made low fat, kindof fattening or SUPER RICH! All the versions taste great. This is called FLYING JACOB (Flygande Jakob) and was my dinner for tonight. This will serve 2 or 3 really hungry people. Its the light version, so if it was richer it would probably safe to say you could feed 4 with it.

FLYING JACOB! Haley version. The traditional version comes further down.

PREHEAT oven to 425 F (225 C)

1 cup of non fat half and half (I know, I know.....)
1/2 cup non fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce (chilisås)
1/2 small can of tomato paste
2 tsp. curry powder

MIX these ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside

3-4 chicken breasts
some bananas
1/2 cup of peanuts
10 strips of MORNINGSTAR vegetarian bacon (or real if you want)
Salt free italian seasoning

BOIL 3-4 chicken breasts and shred the meat. Put the meat at the bottom of a medium casserole dish... a brownie pan works well.

SPRINKLE italian seasoning generously over the chicken. Use a lot.

FRY the bacon and chop it into small bits

POUR creamy mixture over the chicken

SPRINKLE the bacon over the creamy mixture

BAKE for 10 minutes

SPRINKLE the peanuts over the flying jacob and then chop some bananas longwise and lay them over the peanuts (trust me... its good)

BAKE for 5 more minutes. Let this stand until its not boiling hot.

SERVE over rice and salad.

¤¤NOW¤¤ the original is made with heavy cream and creme fraiche instead of non fat half and half and yogurt. And real bacon.

I would like to try this with some Sriracha hot sauce mixed in, and more curry powder. But this is really good, and I encourage you all to try it if you havent!

Japp, jag är vegetarian. Jag förstod inte riktigt vad du frågade efter, men förutom quorn och annat halvfabrikat går det att göra allt med oliver, avocado, linser, bönor och kikärtor. Har du gjort egna falafel någon gång? Det är bara krossade kikärtor, vitlök, persilja, koriander, salt, peppar och spiskummun. Ha i lite mjöl, forma till bollar och stek. Om du undrade över nåt helt annat så omformulera frågan så ska jag svara bättre :).

ja det här var perfekt! letar efter tips om hur man kan äta vegetarisk... för mig blir det svårt när man ska laga såna traditionella rätter som man brukar ha kött till... jag äter mest veggie-smörgåsar och sallader och soppa och sånt men ibland vill man ha något annat...
Nästa gång ska jag prova göra flygande jakob på quorn eller kikärtor istället för kycklingen. tack för falafel-receptet... ska prova imorgon!
