“16 Edible Things You Can Make at Home” is a great guide for those who are very choosy when it comes to foods that can be eaten. There are only a few truly universal culinary delights out there, and this book shares some of them with you. The recipes are both easy to make, but also relatively low in fat. They are healthy and delicious, and they will make even the choosiest of eaters happy. I have yet to find a book that has the exact ingredients for every recipe, but this one does it perfectly.
The recipes themselves run the gamut from easy-to-make salads to very sweet desserts. I especially like how easy it was to customize each one of them. I’ve made stuffed pasta bowls, pizzas, bread, and cookies. The options are endless. There is literally something for everyone.
One recipe called “Baked Cappuccino” uses a sweet caramel sauce to cook fettuccine noodles. Using a pre-made fettuccine noodle set (I like Boca), all you have to do is cook it to perfection, then add your caramel sauce and some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Makes a delicious dessert. Another option is to use regular pasta. Mix together some minced sausage, some chopped or ground beef, and grated Parmesan cheese and you have a delicious spaghetti dish.
Another one that I enjoyed was called “Shredded Cheddar Cornmeal Cookies”. Again, using pre-made cornmeal cookie dough, cook the dough just enough to coat it, and then top it off with a buttercream cheese filling. Bake the cookies on a hot cookie sheet. Use a cookie cutter to crimp the edges. These are so gooey, people always ask me how they can eat such things.
I also really like the sweet and sour pork roast. In this recipe, you cook lean pork chops, onions, and garlic until tender but not mushy. Then add some apple cider vinegar, honey, some celery stalks, and a balsamic glaze to taste. This dish goes great at a potluck, tailgate parties, or a get-together with close friends.
One of my absolute favorite snacks is called “Chips in Bites”. It consists of hummus (made with tahini, a type of Middle Eastern honey), chickpeas (also known as chickpea balls), pita bread, and nutritional yeast flakes. You simply mix up the hummus, chickpeas, and pita bread and enjoy a satisfying snack.
There’s also an excellent soup called Cochin Salmon. I love this soup! Cook a large quantity of salmon and then toss in some cubed roasted sweet potatoes with a little coconut milk and turmeric powder. Let this simmer on low for about 3 hours until cooked. When you serve it, feel free to sprinkle some lime juice over the top.
Other edibles that can be used as snacks include Baked Cakes, Breads and Sweets, Chutneys, Desserts, Fruits and Vegetables, Green Delectable Drinks, Juice Drops, Hot Beverages, Liver Candies, Nuts, Salsas, Spices, and Sweetmeats. If you’re not sure which of these foods will tickle your palate the most, then I suggest starting with the Bread and Sweets category. The spices used in the above edibles are used in most of them. If you’re not a fan of the above-mentioned food groups, then you can easily switch it up by choosing the edibles that are specially designed for you. Just remember, that each of these edible products has a different purpose and therefore should be consumed in moderation.
A lot of people love to start their day with a sweet treat. For example, they like to start their day with a hot cup of cocoa, followed by an apple or orange slice. However, an apple and an orange are not very healthy. What’s the difference? In the case of an apple, the natural sugars in it can provide you with some immediate energy. On the other hand, an orange requires a couple of hours in the oven before it really starts to kick in.
Many of the edibles in the above list are also considered high-calorie foods. This is fine if you’re trying to lose weight or just maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, it’s not good to consume them every single day. Sometimes, it’s better to leave sweet treats like these until later in the evening, or even on weekends.
There are still plenty of other delicious edibles that you can get your hands on. If you start looking through the internet, you’ll be able to find tons of recipes using fruits, vegetables, spices, and other ingredients. Some of these would probably be healthier alternatives for sweets, such as stevia and raw honey, which are commonly used as a sweetener in starchy foods like rice and potatoes. The good thing about finding these 16 edibles online is that you can find them at low prices.
