I just picked up a box of "Dried Green Peas" at the local supermarket.
The ingredients are green peas, salt, oil and food coloring. There is no
nutritional label on the box, and I'm wondering if anyone knows how much
fat exactly is added through the "oil" on the ingredients list. They're
labeled "dried" not "fried", and I don't taste any kind of oily, fried
taste when I eat them. Any info would be appreciated!
In return, I'll post a quick recipe that I cooked up last night with an
acorn squash I had just sitting in my 'fridge. It came out
super-flavorful and was very easy to make.
Savory Acorn Squash
1 whole small acorn squash
1 small chunk ff cheese/ff soycheese, cubed
salt, pepper, cinnamon
Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Place cut side down on a lightly
sprayed cookie sheet and bake at 350 for approx. 30-40 minutes, until
squash is soft. *Carefully* flip squash halves over so the cut side is
up (they will be *HOT*); if the ends are pointed and they don't want to
stand up, you may need to cut the point off the bottom. Fill the cavity
of each half about halfway with cubes of cheese/soycheese. Sprinkle the
entire thing generously with pepper, a little salt, and a littler bit of
cinnamon. Return to oven and bake an additional 5 minutes or so, until
all the cheese is completely melted. Let cool approx. 5-10 minutes
before serving with rice, couscous or another grain dish. One small
squash serves 2 as a side dish, 1 as a main dish.
