This is from "The Natural Gourmet" by Annemarie Colbin. It's supposed to be foolproof, and I guess it must be because it came out right for me the first time. If you don't like the idea of using all extra virgin olive oil then you can follow the original recipe's recommendation of 3/4 cup cold pressed soy or sunflower oil and 1/4 cup extra virgin. This isn't going to come out white, btw.
Just starting the south beach diet and I wanted something that traveled well for breakfast. This is a quick and easy recipe. Very yummy too. It comes out in a neat little package that travels well...but make sure you cover the item when reheating in the microwave.
Suitable for south beach diet phase 2. Cook time includes chill time. If you're one of the people who finds Splenda too sweet, you may want to reduce the amount used, or skip it. Note: "Kashi GOLEAN" is a brand of cereal which is a high fiber soy protein product, a serving has 1 gram fat, and 10 grams fibre. This is readily available in grocery stores here in Halifax, Nova Scotia and may be in your area as well. See www.kashi.com for details.
I just started phase 1 and I haven't been able to find any dessert recipes so I came up with my own. These turned out yummy and satisfied my chocolate craving. *** Make a note that this is two days worth of nut rations. (Don't eat them all on the same day.)
Done in 20 minutes on the stovetop; I like to serve this with my Low Carb Mexi Baked Chicken for a complete and festive low carb dinner. Also a tasty, easy side dish to serve with your tacos, fajitas, etc.
I was looking for a yummy South Beach recipe to curb my Italian Cravings. I found a vegetarian lasagna recipe using eggplant slices as noodles, substituted my own meat sauce, and voila! A low carb keeper in our home! The eggplant taste is indistinguishable with all of the bold italian flavors, and adds the needed texture of the missing noodles. I've also seen zucchini strips used as the mock noodles. Try it!
This recipe comes from the restaurant "Brennan's" located in New Orleans. No one has to know how simple and quick it is. I posted this recipe exactly as it was in the book, however, if you like a little "heat" please feel free to add some cayenne pepper to taste.
