I got this recipe from the Week 1 book WW. I have it many times and I love to make it cut into 6 servings eat 1 then freeze the others. It's a great dinner with a salad when the family is eating the hot dogs, pizza or stuff you just don't want to eat. It's also makes for a quick & delicous lunch.
Many Cajun shrimp dishes have loads of butter. This is a very tasty version that is much lower in fat. You won't miss it. Serve with French bread and a salad. Fabulous dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes.
I found this recipe on the internet somewhere, but have tweaked it a bit. Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables, but I haven't found all that many recipes where it is allowed to take center stage; it is usually buried under so many other ingredients and flavors. This recipe is also a nice way to use up left-over pesto. Preparation time is mainly standing time for the eggplant as it drains its bitter juices.
This simple to prepare recipe was submitted to Cooking Light many years ago by a subscriber. It has a very tasty sauce, and the chicken is wonderfully tender. Serve with your favorite rice - we like lemon-flavored rice.
This is from Cook's Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen) The Best Light Recipe. It's shockingly good. The sauce is also fantastic on fish tacos.
EDIT: THIS RECIPE IS AN APPETIZER. It will not magically turn 2lbs of chicken into a full meal for 10 people. You may serve it as a main course, but please adjust your expectations or multiply the measurements.
You will need thirty 6- or 8-inch bamboo (or wooden) skewers for this recipe. The cooking time will depend on the strength and type of your broiler. Under-the-oven drawer-style broilers tend to take a few minutes longer than in-oven-style broilers. A small clove of minced garlic (about 1/2 teaspoon) can be substituted for the garlic powder in the sauce, if desired.
I stumbled upon this creation after several failed attempts to curb my chocolate cravings while on weight watchers....This has become a favorite for me as well as for many of my guests...those dieting and those who aren't!
Delicious and so easy to prepare.
There have been questions about the accuracy of the carb count configured by Food.com. According to the Splenda help site there are 12 gm of carbs in 1/2 cup and 24 gm in 1 cup. My recipe calls for 3/4 cup which I figure to be 18gm for the entire pie. I submitted this information to Food.com and received this answer.
"dojemi, At this time, the nutritional facts are limited to what is available from the USDA's database, which has only the data for Splenda packets and not Splenda Sugar Blend for Baking."
If you choose to make this pie please take this information into consideration.
Alternative "diet soup" that does not include cabbage. Recipe is from Good Housekeeping. To retain freshness and nutrients keep a 2 day supply of Basic Soup in the refrigerator. Pack remaining soup in 3 cup portions in airtight containers, leaving some room for expansion. Freeze.
This recipe is based on one from a Dr. Oz December 2011 episode where he gave away many Vitamix blenders that cost about $500 each. Fortunately, the directions say you can make this in a blender, which I will have to do while I save up my money. I only use 1 tablespoon of chili powder as 2 tablespoons is too much heat for my tastes. Tip: if you like this and make a lot of it, I saw on another of his shows that it’s much cheaper to soak dry chickpeas than to use canned chick peas, also known as garbanzo beans.
I love experimenting with spices and this is a great tasting combination that everyone in my family loves! Good news is that you can cook this many different ways and you should have all of these ingredients in your pantry already!
