This is a great alternative to high fat and high calorie taco salads at Mexican restaurants. If you want more "oomph" to it: add grated cheese and ground chicken, turkey or crumbled tempeh. Also, the beans are really good warmed.
This has the TASTE and the TEXTURE of a graham cracker crust, but without the fat and calories and with necessary fiber. It's absolutely delish! Feel free to use more cereal if you prefer thicker crusts. The recipe is more than EASILY adaptable! Use for cheesecakes, pies, quiches, whatever requires a crumb crust!
These can be grilled on the BBQ for about 5-6 minutes also. Make certain to soak the wooden skewers for minimum 30 minutes to prevent from burning, this recipe makes about 12 skewers but can be doubled if desired, these are popular at my BBQ get togethers, hope you enjoy!
I got this recipe from the Biggest Loser Cookbook, and I love that it's so easy and that it's a low calorie and fat free treat! *Note: Cooking time is the freezing time* The cookbook says 25 calories, 0 g fat, but I think that was calculated without the whipped topping.
This is verbatim from the Betty Crocker Cookbook. I prefer using multiple color onions to give it a little flair, serving it over pasta, and with a green vegetable.
Scampi is a term often used in restaurants to describe a dish made with large shrimp that are prepared with garlic, oil or butter, then broiled in a shallow ramekin. This easy version is cooked in a skillet.
Pesto with Noodles :) I use a pre-made pesto and put this together for myself as a quick and light lunch. One package pesto adds 40 calories to this dish. Could also be doubled or quadrupled for a family meal or side dish.
