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 :)

Butternut squash helps slim down this macaroni and cheese. You can't taste it, and it boosts the nutritional value of the dish!

Tex Mex Quinoa Dip or Salad
Incredible! 5.0/5

If I weren't sparking, I'd be scooping this up with tortilla chips! This would also be great in a wrap. Right now, I'm eating it with a fork and it is fantastic!

Makes 4 huge servings at this calorie level. 6 smaller servings would lighten the calories.

This is a layered dip or main dish.
