This is a surprisingly filling, vegetarian, crock pot soup. It is very good, and easy to prepare the night before, or chop the veggies in advance and turn it on before you leave for work in the morning. Goes great with a crusty bread.
I got this recipe from a cookbook and loved it so much I wanted to share it. This is perfect alone or served in a chicken salad. Because there are only the two of us, I divide the recipe into four freezer bags with 2 chicken breast halves in each bag.
The theory is you dump this in a bag and freeze to pull out later. There are many variations which I will post separately but it's amazingly easy to make these up and have a different "dump" chicken every week!
I finally got around to putting this recipe on Recipezaar! This is our family's favourite recipe. It is very kid friendly (no heat) so feel free to add something to spice it up if you like it spicy. I am posting this mainly so that I can access this recipe on "my shopping list" which is a feature I use here on Recipezaar all the time!
Amazing flavor, and so simple! No salt needed here. In fact, you may wish to use half the ranch dressing mix to cut back on the saltiness. Found this Crock-Pot pot roast recipe on of a website called www.recipegoldmine.com. It's all the rage there, so I thought I'd try it.
A friend who is low-carbing it gave me this recipe. I think she got it from a low-carb website; I'm not sure. Use your imagination to come up with filling ingredients - this is simply my favorite variation.
Back when I was "Beachin'" this was probably one of my favorite recipes. Very easy to make and such a nice change from a piece of meat and veggies. This is Phase 1 appropriate, and tastes very good topped with shredded 2% cheddar, a dollop of plain yogurt, and avocado slices. Even non-dieters will enjoy this thick and hearty soup.
NOTE: To stay true to South Beach be sure and buy canned kidney beans with no added sugar and taco seasoning that is South Beach approved. I used Old El Paso.
This is one of the best briskets I have ever made. The cooking time does not reflect the overnight marinating.
I want to add that I have made this in the oven for the holidays this year, 2 weeks in a row by request, and I just tripled the sauce ingredients, used the same marinade and brisket. I roasted it for 2 1/2 hrs at 350, they were wonderful as well.
Another personal South Beach Diet friendly favorite of mine. It's flavorful and easy to throw together, bakes in less than 1 hour. I serve this with a side of my Mexican Jumping Beans. For the taco seasoning, I like to make my own (no sugar added; there are plenty of taco seasoning Zaar recipes to choose from, if you would like to make your own.
This recipe adapted to help me stick to a 'good' carb eating program for weight loss. The whole family loves it! Very easy to make too! Note: You can substitute canned beef broth for the 'beef base' if you want. I also recommend the low-sodium kind. Also, once the rice is cooked through, if it looks like more water is needed, go ahead and add it to your liking.
The tangy-oniony dressing is the key to this salad. My daughter won't let me get 'lazy' and not make the dressing too! My mother use to make this spinach salad years ago and it's been a family favorite ever since.
