I got this recipe from Weight Watchers. It is delicious. The rich, nutty flavor of freshly grated Parmesan cheese pairs beautifully with cauliflower. Try the same recipe with broccoli, baby carrots and asparagus.
I started Weight Watchers again and wanted a filling breakfast or lunch. I made this up and love it so I thought I'd share. It's not really a recipe but a combo that is low in points. You could change the taste by adding spices like oregano, etc. on top for no points. The multigrain lite muffin from Thomas' is 1 point and it has 8 grams of fiber! It's so much healthier than what I usually eat! I am using the store bought Sabra brand garlic hummus from Costco and for 1 oz. (3 pts.) which is 2 tbsp. so I use only 1 for 1 1/2 pts. This is 2 1/2 points.
This is incredibly smooth and creamy. The secret ingredient is (believe it or not) non-dairy liquid creamer. I had a version of this at a restaurant. I asked them for the recipe, and they gave me a list of ingredients, so this is my re-creation based on those ingredients.
These looked exquisite and tasted great! I needed to make a dish for a vegetarian, a person who is lactose intolerant, and two toddlers along with other guests who were none of the above. I messed around with a few recipes and came up with this one that pleased everyone. I was even asked for the recipe, and one person asked to take home the leftovers. The recipe is fairly flexible. You can also add 1 can of corn and/or 1 chopped bell pepper, or a small can of chopped green chilies (drained). You can also use regular cheese, regular lasagna noodles, and cottage or ricotta cheese for the tofu.
A quick and easy side dish to accompany any autumnal meal. It also goes very will with chicken or pork dishes that include fruits or preserves. Quick cooking brown rice makes this not only delicious but fast. If you use water chestnuts, this is WW Core.
If you think tofu has no taste, think again! We pressed out its water and then roasted it with soy sauce to create a wonderful dense texture and a delicious, smoky flavor. 6 points per serving.
Roasted carrots are a favorite snack or side dish that I enjoy several times a week. This particular rendition came about after thinking about the wonderful Moroccan carrot salads posted on the site. Not only are these delicious, they are
This is a tasty stir fry which core when served with brown rice.
Add any vegetables that are in season if desired.
Note: In response to reviews on this recipe I've made a few adjustments. I hope people will find them to their liking. I've added a sesame oil/soya sauce coating for the tofu. (You may press out excess liquid first) I've also added garlic and ginger to the ingredients. The carrots now have an additional 5 minutes cooking time. I've also removed the tofu once browned to be returned to pan near the end of the total cooking time to prevent overcooking.
The prep and cooking time do not include the time to press the tofu as I usually skip that step.
Thankyou's go to the chefs who've reviewed this recipe for their critiques. Your input is always welcome.
A recipe inspired by "Vegetarian Times," a good read whether you are vegetarian, vegan or omnivorous. I love comforting stews in the winter and this one grabbed me instantly. The golden, orange and reddish hues will remind you of a perfect Southwestern sunset. of This gets even better the next day, so cook ahead if you like.
Copied from a Weight Watchers Cookbook. I have some dieters coming for Thanksgiving this year. I believe the recipe stated that you can use fingerling potatoes or red potatoes but I alway have red potatoes on hand so that is why I listed red potatoes as the potato ingredient.
This came from "Simply Delicious - Flexpoints Cookbook" from Weight Watchers. Out of all the recipes in there, this is the one that I want to try the most. At time of posting, I have not tried this. But I plan on doing so soon. I can't find tofu here in town so it will have to wait until I can get into the city to get some. The book says this is 2 points per serving. The numbers as presented here come up as closer to 3 points (2.9) but that is because it isn't counting on reduced fat tofu. Plus it isn't counting the balsamic vinegar.
