Asparagus and crab crepes

This is what I thought "Crab and asparagus crepes" would be until I read the whole recipe. Same ingredients (mostly), slightly more heart-healthy and easier and quicker to make.

Crepes

Can be savoury or sweet.

Bread sauce

Needs a double boiler. Use with poultry.

Chicken and cauliflower curry

Any vegetables can be used, or none.

Apple crumble

Can be made with berries or any other fruit

Omelet

Can be filled with veggies, grated cheese, fried mushrooms or anything else.

Sweet and sour sauce

Good with any meat or fish.

Soup veggies

Use whatever vegetables you have. These are just what we happened to have this time.

Hollandaise sauce

This is from EatingWell, modified.

Mushroom soup

Can be made with all milk or half milk, half water.

Tuna pancakes

For two people, use half the batter to make regular pancakes first, then add tuna, peppers, onion, parsley and pepper to the rest.

Milk jellies

Almost nothing but skim milk in them.

Custard

No fat or sugar.

Healthy Welsh cakes

To make them even healthier, use wholewheat flour.

Veggie frittata

A heart-healthy frittata

Chia bread

This bread is made with olive oil, chia seeds and oats.

Fudge Frosting

This frosting goes with the steamed chocolate cupcakes if wished, or any other cake, but it's not heart healthy. It can be replaced by fat-free, sugar-free vanilla yogurt, or custard, or left out altogether.

Steamed chocolate cup cakes

This recipe can be made as 12 cupcakes or as one whole cake. It has no butter, no added sugar, no egg yolks and no added salt, but it's delicious.

Heart-smart almond biscotti

These have much healthier ingredients than regular biscotti, but still taste wonderful.
