Great the first day, even better on the second. I love pumpkin soup and I made this hearty version. Serve with some crusty bread for a real, stick to your bones meal! You can of course make this from fresh pumpkin, but canned is a lot easier and can be found year-round in the baking aisle. Feel free to alter paprika, dill, garlic powder, and salt to taste.
This is a cold dish, jellied fish. It is my version of a Ukrainian dish that is usually made with meat. It is really good served with horseradish sauce. I used Tilapia but any whitefish will work. Cook time is chill time.
I looked up many quiche recipes but they all tend to be rather high in calories and fat. So here is my alternative. Healthy, all fresh ingredients, very filling. Note: I have only tried this in a toaster oven so you may have to adjust the times. Serving Suggestion: serve with a salad.
I LOVE green bean casserole...I HATE leftovers. This recipe can serve as a side dish for two or as a whole meal for one. If you want you can leave out the mushrooms and substitute for cream of celery. However, I really like mushrooms. Some people may also like to sprikle some french's dried onions on top, but once again, it is not my thing.
Very easy with great flavor. Very healthy too. I use all fresh ingredients usually and soy milk instead of regular for the sauce. Also I like to substitute Bisquick heart smart for the flour. However, those are all personal preferences. This isn't out of a cookbook, just something I made up so feel free to tweak to personal preferences.
Cooking times are an approximation, use your judgement based on veggie tenderness and sauce thickness.
Goes well with biscuits or nice, hearty bread.
Something easy and quick yet very elegantly flavored.
Makes a nice sauce too. Goes well with pasta or as a side dish to seafood.
Butter can be substituted with spread or cholesterol free product such as butter buds.
I couldn't find any pancake recipes to serve one person and I did not want to have left over batter or have to freeze unused pancakes...just not the same. So here is a recipe that I divised using bisquick heart smart along with a serving suggestion of strawberry syrup which completely depends on your taste and can be made with any other frozen fruit. By all means use any type of milk that you want I just prefer soy. Also, try experimenting with different flavors of flavoring syrups.
This is something I made up to have for lunch. I enjoy it...so hopefully you may too. Its really healthy and low cal...2 slices light bread is 80 and the boca burger is 70. Mushroom and onion and the mustard add maybe 20. Very filling for lunch.
Diet cocoa has 25 calories per packet and soy slender chocolate has 70 calories per cup. Da Vinci or torani sugar free syrups have 0 calories per oz. So the whole recipe clocks in at only about 40-45 calories. Enjoy!
Of course the ingredients can be substituted to include non-diet sugarry and dairy versions, but this way you have the option of having a guilt-free beverage all to yourself!
Cooking for one is more difficult than cooking for a crowd. Sometimes you want something savory but don't have time to make it. This recipe can be modified to serve as many people as you want and tastes as if you've spent hours preparing it! Substitute any potato you want, btw. Just make sure their skin is thin enough to crisp.
I got ideas from MANY recipes and doctored this up. All I can say is that it tastes amazing, is easy to make, and is relatively low in calories. Use any flavor syrup, this one is just my favorite. Also, any other fruit can be used.
Prep time includes time to cook rice. Alternately use pre-cooked or quick cook rice. It's hard cooking for one...sometimes harder than cooking for a crowd. So I keep coming up with recipes that I can use for myself and hopefully they can help some other solo people out there. However, that being said, this recipe can be easily doubled or whatever you wish.
