1. Title: Udon Noodles with Asparagus and Cashews

Yield: 3 Servings

Categories: *nava atlas, Asian, Low-Fat, Pasta, Vegetarian


      6 oz Whole wheat udon noodles or fettucine
      1 ts Peanut oil
      2    Cloves garlic; minced
  1 1/2 tb Cashews; dry-roasted, chopped
      6 oz Asparagus; steamed OR 12 spears, ends snapped
      2 oz Fresh pea pods; steamed
      1 tb Dry sherry; mixed with
      1 tb Tamari soy sauce; and
    3/4 ts Cornstarch

  PRE-STEAMING: The original recipe used raw vegetables in the stir fry and
  added water to the wok until the vegetables were bright green. Instead of
  'sweat-frying' the vegetables, steam them for 3 minutes with a piece of
  fresh ginger the size of a small table grape. Shock the vegetables in ice
  water, drain and towel dry
  Bring a pot of water to the boil. Cook the noodles; they will take about 5
  to 6 minutes.
  Meanwhile, heat oil in wok over high heat. Fry the garlic until the oil is
  aromatic (1 minute or less). Reduce heat. Add the cashews and stir briefly.
  Add the steamed vegetables and stir fry to heat through. Clear a space in
  the center of the wok. Pour in the cornstarch mixture. (see tip) The
  alcohol will burn about as quickly as it takes to drain the noodles; shake
  off some of the water but not all; add wet noodles to the wok; gently stir
  to form sauce. Serve at once.
  TIP: Add a little pasta water to the wok to prevent the sauce from burning   while draining the noodles. It helps to have a assistant.
  SPRINGTIME: These hearty noodles were delicious with the light sauce,
  cashews, sweet pea pods and young asparagus. A winner. Tested Apr-26-1998  by Kitpath : PAT Hanneman's Kitchen (PER mc-SERVING: 286 Calories; 7g Fat  (22% calories from fat); 5g Fiber; 9g Protein; 49g Carbohydrate; 0mg  Cholesterol; 274mg Sodium. )

  minutes, until the fries are crispy, turning them every 6 to 8 minutes with

5. Title: Upma
Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Appetizers, Indian


      1 c  Cream of wheat
      1    Onions  cut lengthwise
      1 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Mustard seeds
    1/8 ts Urad dal
      1    Cashew-nut
    1/4    Lemon
    1/2 c  Peas
      1    Pod Garlic
    1/8    Inch ginger
      1    Green chilli cut into small

  1. Cook a vegetable mix with potatoes, peas, green chillies and lots of
  masala. Check for salt, before you stuff it in the pastry roll; no way to
  rectify it later. 2. Thaw the roll for about 10 minutes before unfolding.
  3. After the pastry roll has thawed, open it out on a flat sheet and roll
  it with a pin to make it a little thinner. The pastry sheet would now be
  about 12'' x  12''. 4. Cut the sheet into 6 pieces. 5. Place about 2-3
  table spoons of the cooked vegetable and fold the sheet around it. Seal all
  the corners by pressing the sheets together and applying a little water. 6.
  Stick it into a pre-heated oven (350 F) for about 20-30 minutes or till it
  browns. Make sure that you flip it around every 5-10 minutes.
