NOTICE: In preparation for the UnDiet Recipes book this site will no longer have new recipes added to it. But don't despair - if you place yourself on the UnDiet Update list you'll recipe new recipes each month, many of which will not even be in the recipe book!
These Fruit concoctions can be eaten from when you wake up - until noon, but they're well suited to be used as snacks, appetizers or party food also. Remember though that they still need to be eaten before, with, or just after a meal, or wait 4-1/2 hours after a Protein meal, 2-1/2 hours after a Starch meal.
Garnish salad with
I prefer using toasted pecans, but raw will do just fine also. On a cold winter night I sometimes use this applesauce in place of a salad for dinner.
In a food processor finely grind 1/4 cup pecans for each apple you'll be using. Add and process until smooth
If the applesauce is too runny let it sit a bit to give the nuts a chance to soak up some of the liquid.
Here is an excellent tasting recipe from Anne Louise Gittleman's "Get The Sugar Out." This won't taste exactly the same as a baked apple pie, but it is delicious in and of itself. Now that the mornings are chillier, I love this for breakfast, barely warmed with a little cream or nondairy milk poured over the pie. M-m-m good!
In a food processor pulse 3 cups walnuts or pecans to a fine powder, so that you have 2 cups of ground walnuts. Take care not to end up with nut butter. If you need to add more nuts, do so. Dump out into a 9-inch pie pan. Pulse 3/4 pound dried dates, pitted and chopped in food processor. Dump nuts back into food processor and process until well mixed. Pat dough into pie pan so that it forms a crust on the bottom and up the sides of pan. Chill overnight.
Soak 3 large apples, peeled, cored, quartered, and sliced into 1/4 inch pieces in juice of 1-1/2 lemons (about 1/4 cup) and 1 teaspoon cinnamon, overnight. The next day, pour into crust.
Boil gently for five minutes
Toss your choice of Fruit with a modest amount of this syrup.
Variations: use thyme, or rosemary in place of the mint.
This salsa is great over fish or chicken or as a topping for Chili Relleno Crepes. I filled a soy cheese and whole wheat tortilla quesadilla with this salsa the other night and WOW!
If you use a sugar substitute in place of the unrefined sugar than this dish is a lower carb or calorie count.
Makes 3-1/2 cups.
Freeze 4 cups peeled, pitted, chopped fresh peaches, then thaw and drain (save the juice for a Fruit shake), or measure 4 cups frozen peaches, then thaw and drain. Save the peach juice for a Fruit shake or to add to a salad dressing or marinade. Chop the peaches and place in a medium bowl. Stir in
Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes and up to a few days.
This salad is surprisingly delicious. I came up with it when I was in the mood for a Waldorf Salad, only it wouldn't have gone with the meal I was serving. The mild sweetness of the pears stands up to the sharpness of the blue cheese and the bite of the black peppercorns.
Toss with Blue Cheese Vinaigrette
Serve on a bed of lettuce dressed with Blue Cheese Vinaigrette. Garnish with crushed black peppercorns and fresh or dried oregano, sage, or rosemary.
Whisk together or whirl in blender
Taste and adjust seasoning to taste.
Puree 2 apples, peeled and cored and 1 banana. Stop and scrape as needed until you have a smooth puree.
If you use Nutrasweet or Sweet 'N Low in place of the unrefined sugar than this is a much lower calorie or carb count. This doesn't concern all UnDieters but some of you are on low calorie or low carb plans.
Gently fold in
Stir continuously over medium heat until sugar melts 2 teaspoons butter and 1 tablespoon unrefined sugar.
Turn off heat. Add to sweetened butter, stirring until apples are well coated
In a small bowl, mix
This is enough dip for
Variation: spoon sauce over or use as a dip for blueberries, raspberries, boysenberries, peaches, bananas or a mix of these Fruits.
If you skip the feta cheese then this is a Neutral dish.
Mix 1/3 cup lime juice, 2/3 orange juice, a dash of chili powder, and a dash of hot sauce. Add 2 cups pineapple, diced, 2 cups cucumber, diced, and 2 cups mango, diced. Spoon into 4 tall glasses or bowls. Top each serving with a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese and/or minced chives.
That's it. The whole recipe is in the title. Freeze the grapes. Your kids and teenagers won't care that they're healthy - they'll eat them like ice cream!
Refrigerate bowl and beaters at least 30 minutes before whipping cream. Whip until soft or stiff peaks form
Substitute your choice of liqueur in place of the vanilla
Stir 2 tablespoons cocoa powder into the cream when you place the bowl and beaters in the fridge. Whip with rest of ingredients when ready.
