Soba Noodles, Chicken, and Veggies with Caramelized Garlic Sauce
Very Good 4.9/5
(16 ratings)

Warning: must love garlic.

This dish serves 1, but can easily be modified to serve more.

Some Soba noodles are gluten-free (check package). They are made from buckwheat and metabolize much more slowly than most carbohydrates, which makes them ideal for diabetics and health-conscious individuals. You can pick them up at your local japanese market or health food store.

If you don't have any chicken leftovers on hand, Marinate chicken breast tenderloins or sliced breasts in some sesame oil, chopped up garlic, sake or rice vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper for 4-24 hours. Cook in nonstick skillet.. adding a bit of soy sauce and sake/wine halfway through the cooking.

This sauce can be used on any noodles with just about any vegetables you like. Enjoy :)

Recipe from EatingWell.com! This is so good! My husband and I tried it with an open mind and were so pleased with the outcome. I topped mine with sriracha sauce for some bite! Enjoy.

Linguine with Spicy Shrimp
Very Good 4.4/5
(192 ratings)

We're serious about the spice in this recipe. Whole-grain pasta and tender shrimp pair perfectly with a luxuriously rich, piquant sauce.

This is a recipe that I got off one of the Weight Watcher's free handouts and decided to share. It was very good and relatively easy to make. I didnt add the parmesan cheese (I forgot) but the dish missed nothing by not having it. I used it as a side with a small pork chop I cooked up and it went perfectly.

When the craving for chocolate hits, try this Chocolate-Cinnamon Bread Pudding. The warm melted chocolate makes it a definite comfort food, while the whole wheat bread and evaporated skim milk adds to its nutritional punch.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(80 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

I don't like fish much, but I love this baked tilapia recipe! I think the sauce can be used with other fish/seafood.
