From "The South Beach Diet Supercharged."
Note that the recipe calls for vegetable broth, but I used low sodium chicken broth that I had on-hand. I also substituted 3 tsp of minced garlic for 3 cloves of garlic.

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.

Very Filling and Flavorful Alternative to Hash. Good with a bit of turkey bacon and a low sodium V8 for the start of the day. This can, in theory be doubled to make patties. I would suggest using as little broth as you need if doing that.

I love cauliflower soup but I usually add some potatoes and carrots. While I was doing Phase 1 of the South Beach diet, I tried this recipe out and loved it. It would also be good with a little bit of broccoli but I didn't have any on hand.

An easy and delicious side dish for lunch or dinner. I even had some as a bed to a poached egg. Keeps well in the fridge for a few days.

This chili is great for people on the South Beach Diet. Lean ground beef or ground turkey can be substituted for the chicken.

Garlic and toasted slivered almonds make ordinary green beans extra special. Prepare the beans in batches if you do not have a large enough skillet, keeping the first round warm until the second batch is ready.

aj's (South Beach) Turkey Chili
(no ratings)

My version of the South Beach Turkey Chili (Phase 1). I used a McCormick Chili Seasoning Packet instead of the recommended spices in the recipe and used white beans instead of black. This is a great use of leftover turkey breast from Thanksgiving or another roasted turkey!

This is a great low-cal alternative to mash potatoes. Surprisingly I think it tastes similar to the point you won't miss them even! Cauliflower with cream cheese & cheddar cheese to top. A great side dish!
