Healthy dinner recipes are becoming more and more important today as people become more educated about what they eat.
The best healthy recipes are made at home....at least you can see what you are putting in your food.
It can be fun when trying to put them together. If you love to experiment with food and love being in the kitchen, then recipes can be discovered.
Let me show you a few healthy dinner recipes.
1 pint haricot beans.
5 pints water.
2 ounces butter.
1 ounce salt.
6 large carrots.
2 large onions.
1 small head of celery.
1 teaspoon peppercorns.
Dissolve the butter in a large saucepan. Slice the vegetables, and place them in the saucepan together with the water and peppercorns, and simmer for one hour. Add salt, and simmer for another hour and a half. Strain.
1 pint lentils.
2 quarts water.
1 1/2 ounces butter.
1 teaspoon salt. 1 tablespoon minced parsley.
Slice the vegetables and fry in the butter for five minutes, place them in a saucepan with the lentils and water and boil one and a half hours; add salt and a little pepper if liked.
Strain, replace in the saucepan, add the parsley, boil for three minutes, and serve.
Note:--The solid part which is strained away should on no account be wasted, but will be found excellent for making lentil puddings, pies, stews, etc.
Lentil soup is one of my favorite healthy dinner recipes.
3.--Stewed Green Peas.
1 pint shelled peas.
1 gill of water.
1 onion sliced.
A sprig of mint.
1/2 ounce of butter.
Salt to taste.
Wash the lettuce and cut it up rather fine, place it with the other ingredients in a stew pan, and simmer without the lid about half an hour, or until the peas are quite tender.
Tomatoes prove to be very satisfactory when stuffed with a well-seasoned stuffing and then baked.
Medium-sized tomatoes that are firm and unblemished should be selected for stuffing.
(Sufficient to Serve Six)
1-1/2 c. crumbs
2 Tb. butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp. celery salt
1/2 tsp. salt
Dash of pepper.
Remove the stem end from each tomato and scoop out the inside so that a hollow shell remains. Chop the pulp of the tomatoes into small pieces and add the crumbs, melted butter, onion, celery salt, salt, and pepper. Mix together thoroughly.
If the tomatoes do not furnish enough liquid to moisten the crumbs, add a little water.
Pack the stuffing into the tomatoes, allowing it to heap on top, and place the tomatoes side beside in a shallow pan.
Set in a hot oven and bake until the tomato shells are tender enough to be pierced with a fork and the stuffing is well heated through. Serve at once.
Another of my healthy dinner recipes is tomatoes. I love to buy them and eat them raw just with a little salt.
