Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)

I am a huge fan of ramen. I am -not- a huge fan of the seasoning packets that -come- with the ramen, though. After having had real, Japanese ramen, it's hard to stomach those blah packet-flavors, and they're so, so salty. And thus, this is one ramen broth recipe I'd found (and have heavily modified) to make one of the huge bowls of Japanese-style miso-flavored ramen that I love so well.

NOTE: This does -not- include the calories for the noodles themselves! You can use basic packaged ramen noodles, or soba noodles, rice noodles... basically, anything you prefer to use is good. Or you can leave them out entirely. The choice is up to you!

Autumn Harvest Soup

I have a bad habit of going 'mmm, this sounds good' at the produce market, and I come home with all kinds of stuff. Sometimes it all works beautifully together... like it did for this surprisingly low-calorie, low-sodium, low-fat. high-potassium soup.

This is just a very basic chicken salad for topping off greens or slapping between a couple slices of bread. It's a basic recipe which, in the past, I've done with much more mayo - the milk thins out the mayo and helps spread the flavor out in this variation. Adding dried cranberries or chopped nuts makes it even better, but doing that, one should remove the relish and add a little more milk (maybe up it to 3 tablespoons of milk). This is a -big- recipe because it keeps for many days in a sealed container.

This is a very basic tuna salad to use for sandwiches or to top a green salad. Milk replaces part of the mayo to reduce the fat and sodium content slightly. We like a lot of green onion, but you can add more celery to give it body and 'crunch' if you want.

My aunt made a salad very much like this for holidays, although she uses currants instead of cranberries (hard to find where I'm at), and I'm still trying to master her 'dressing'. Either way, it tastes fantastic.

This is pretty much to compute the caloric/vitamin/sodium intake of tonight's main course, which happens to be a veggie and chicken soup. It's pretty decent. Next time I'll leave out the canned fire-roasted tomatoes and opt for corn, though, and add more shallot and onion.

This is a good base for a soup, or it's a good simple and quick soup on its own right. You can toss in more ingredients if you want to, but add the calories that go with it! It is, for a soup, EXTREMELY low sodium and low-calorie, so if you want to add things like chicken meatballs/dry noodles/etc to it, it isn't going to be overpowering.

It sounds odd, but it tastes good! NOTE: This is not low-calorie!
