In a large non-stick skillet, combine all ingredients. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender-crisp, about 15 minutes. To turn this into a complete meal, add a few ounces each of shredded Mozzarella and Cheddar cheese. Cover and let stand for a few minutes until cheese melts. Makes 4 servings.

Combine with the butter/sugar mixture, blending well. Spread and press tightly into a 9 x 9 inch pan. Cream the 1/4 cup butter, milk, custard powder and icing sugar. Spread over mixture in pan. Melt the chocolate over hot water; add butter and blend well. Spread over the icing. Let set. Chill and keep refrigerated. NOTES A Favorite Canadian sweet -- This comes from a page in an obscure magazine called something like "Canadian Homemaker_, by way of a Canadian friend, Steve Deering. This is a traditional Canadian sweet, much loved and admired. The origin of the recipe seems to be lost in the mists of time, though everyone seems to agree that it comes from the town of Nanaimo, in British Columbia.
Difficulty: easy.
Time: 20 minutes preparation, several hours chilling.
Precision: measure the ingredients.

5. Neatballs (meatless)

1 Cup(s) Cooked bulgur wheat or brown rice (when I use rice I chop it up a little)
1/2 Cup(s) Soy grits, soaked or mushed leftover beans
1/4 Cup(s) Nonfat cottage cheese
1/2 Cup(s) Whole-grain bread crumbs
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Teaspoon(s) Soy sauce

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients and form into 1 1/2 inch balls. Bake on a cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes per side. I add a lot of seasonings to these (for e.g. 1-2 t. of oregano, basil, sage or thyme and garlic) or sometimes I add finely chopped mushrooms or onions.They are very plain and lend themselves to seasonings well. I have frozen them on a cookie sheet after cooking and then just throw them in a container. They were fine.
