Eggplant are things I buy and let sit until they go bad quite often. I have a problem deciding how to fix them in a low cal way quite often. This dish is the result of that search for me. It is easy and fairly quick.
I use all fresh ingredients for this recipe. I found the results to be very flavorful. You will need a steamer basket along with a good pot that has a tight lid. The cooking time varies so more water may be necessary to reach the desired texture
This is a good way to use fresh pumpkin other than in a pie. The soup is spicy and rich tasting. It is fairly easy to make except for the peeling and not letting it curdle
once the yogurt is added
This is not a real fancy salad but fast and tasty although not traditional
While adding vegetable variety to this salad I have changed some traditional ingredients to my own taste and needs. Although a bit optimistic at first I found it was pretty good
The ingredients listed are always in my fridge (thus the name) I can not eat most leaf vegetables without risk so I seldomly use them. I only use vinegar which may leave something missing for some folks but options are plentiful so all I can say is it is up to your taste
I grew up on white rice with my favorite dish being the Georgia style rice and tomatoes. This is the way I have adapted it to diet requirement (with the exception of using canned stewed tomatoes instead of fresh seeded and peeled stewed.
This recipe gives flavor and variety to couscous while adding healthy ingredients. I do not add salt to any food however in this instance I have used commercially prepared chicken broth containing it
this is spicy but not over hot. I use it as a main dish however I am certain it could be used as a side as well .
I use all raw fresh vegetables.
This is a fast spicy hummus. I use it when I run out of the commercially prepared or do not feel up to cooking dry garbanzo beans. To me it is quite tasty
This is a good way to use up black eye peas after the southern tradition of having them on New Years for luck.
I used canned but the recipe can easily be used for cooked dry beans or fresh picked as well. My inspiration for this recipe was from a similar one published in the Publix market weekly ad circular...However, the ingredients differ as does the cooking method.
Basically I came across this combination while looking for something to add to my asparagus bisque. It cooks easily and is delicious, I think, either by itself or added to the soup. I had added too much curry powder to my soup the first time I had made it. I was surprised when I came up with this remedy as the two went very well together.
My 90 yr old loves blueberry muffins and even though his mental capability has left him, still enjoys them. I started making these by box but decided to cut out the oil and add a few cranberries and some walnuts that I had left from my cranberry bread. This was very tasty. My husband ate three the first time he tried them.
This is a tasty soup that can be served hot or chilled. There is no added fat and the sodium is reduced
I had begun to make chicken burgers when I thought of experimenting with different ingredients as the chicken burgers were always a little dry. As Always I do not use added salt nor pepper so some might wish to spice things up a bit
This soup takes a bit of time to make but is well worth it on a cold winters evening. I do not use salt and pepper in cooking normally and in this instance the broth adds it for me
In this recipe I attempted to give some variety to the squash and still keep my eye on healthy foods and my own dietary needs. I also omit salt and pepper due to my own diet restrictions
this is a rather plain version of squash for some...for others like myself it is a necessity. For those who find it too plain I hope it will give ideas for them to investigate
I use curly's sauceless pork to create fast meals often. It is a fast handy way to add meat and be sure of tenderness. The potato Inspirations are delicious alternatives to regular potatoes. I combined these two with other vegetables and slow cooked them in the crock pot on a day that did not have enough minutes. The result was very good...at least my family thinks so
This is another recipe I have formed in an effort to maintain dietary needs and health needs. My family and I found them tasty. The family added toppings of cheese, etc. I ate mine as they were and still enjoyed them. I used dry beans. This increased cooking time but decreased sodium found in canned
a good alternative to meat in a meal and great served with a cucymber salad
This is an extra lean low salt burger patty with added veggies that I use as a main dish due to diet restrictions. Taste may easily be altered with different seasoning
This is my way of getting a bit of vegetables and fruit, it may not work for everyone. I have some problems with scar tissue that endangers me when I eat so this is a solution
My Cookout got rained out as I was about to roll the grill out.
My solution was to improvise instead of forget it...I already had the ribs ready to go. I seared then slow cooked these till tender. As a last thought I poured in a can of pepsi to take the place of the BBQ sauce. I simmered the ribs stirring occassionally. The result was tender and tasty with less fuss and cleanup than the cookout..
This dish was an accident. I put the things I had together and kept them low cal/low fat. I serve with honey and/0r strained greek yogurt. (optional) It can be cooked in a heavy skillet with a tight fitting lid, microwaved with a covered corning ware casserole dish or baked in the oven covered. The resulting product is actually more of a poached than baked dish though.
This is a family favorite. I came up with it one day while attempting to make a dish everyone would like with the ingredients on hand. Now the family requests it.. It is cooked on top of the stove in a heavy skillet with a tight fitting lid.
This is a not too hot chili as it only uses 1/3 the ration of seasoning to servings. There are many variations but this is the one I make when pressed for time.
This is a traditional Southern dish altered a little to make it more healthy. I have replaced the traditional salt and pepper with other seasoning and use the sunflower in place of shortening or lard.
This is a simple no frills stew that is simple to make. I use no salt and therefore it may be too plain for some taste but it is hearty and basic
for everyday use
A great economical Fish main dish that is easy
and fast. I find this is a good change from the
When a fast easy to make dish is needed, I make this and cook it on the griddle. I use
ketchup as a garnish, I accompany it with rice
topped with black beans...or cheese grits and spinach or turnips.
This is an economical dish that can be used for both breakfast and other meals. It is similar to cornmeal mush or grits and may be chilled and cut into slices to fry in butter.
