buttered casserole. Cook 25 mins. in 350 degree F. oven. Add 2nd

This recipe is highly unusual, hereabouts. My husband ate it as a
little boy. His mother brought the recipe from the Ukraine. The only
other time I heard it mentioned by the name "Richard" was in an
interview with Rudolph Nureyev, before his death. He said that
"Richard" was one of his most favorite dishes when he was small.
The mushrooms are optional, that's something I added.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Use soy flour or soy baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins baking mix. In most cases, you may change your favorite recipes that use conventional wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.
* Make low carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Whilst you can sometimes buy low carb breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carb bread in a pre-heated oven on a baking tray. Once it is well toasted, whizz it in your food processor or blender. Keep in an airtight jar.
