Recipes I've Shared:

Shrimp Soup - Mexican

Original recipe called for 1/2 Cup Tomato puree instead of the spinach. We felt the tomato overtook the shrimp and substituted them with spinach. The original recipe also called for dressing the soup with tortilla strips, we omitted these, and the soup is still very flavorful.

HCG Thai Chicken/Cabbage Stir-Fry

This makes a pretty tasty low calorie meal.

HCG Onion Soup

A pretty tasty Onion Soup, compatible with Phase 2 & 3 HCG diet. Additional Salt/Pepper or Garlic Powder will not alter the Nutritional Value. The Worcestershire should be omitted for Phase Two. (Unless you want to cheat just a tad.)

HCG Chicken-Spinach Soup

A HCG friendly soup- low calorie, low fat, low carb. Reminiscent of a Thai soup.

HCG Veal Soup

This is an HCG diet compliant Soup.

Chicken Divan Crepes

Elegant Entree

Whole Wheat Bread w/Flax, Wheat Bran & Soy using Bread Machine

This recipe makes 2 loaves, sliced 18 slices per loaf. One serving equals 1 slice of bread. This is a nutritious, low fat wheat bread

Shrimp en Fuego - Copycat

This is a "Copycat" recipe for Outback's 'Shrimp en Fuego". It is very close to the original- though I have sauteed the shrimp instead of breading and frying them. I have also served this over brown rice and it was delicious. I think it might be nice over pasta too.

Energy Bar - Fruit & Nut

Recipe comes from GuidePosts magazine. These bars are served at a Cancer Hospital to people receiving Chemotherapy.

Whole Wheat & Quinoa Bread

A rich tasting, high protein bread.

Tuna Ala King - Sauce

This sauce is good served over rice, toast or noodles.

Tijuana Terror

This is a hearty sandwich with a South-of-the-border taste. Multiply your ingredients for more than one sandwich.

Slim Jim - Tops Big Boy Sandwich

This was a delightful Ham N Cheese sandwich as it was served in Illiniois Tops Big Boys restaurants.

Hungarian Goulash

Authentic, slow simmered and very tasty.

Cranberry Relish Gelatin

Cranberry Relish is very refreshing in the summer. An excellent accompaniment to a Thanksgiving turkey, and a lovely side dish for most any pork or turkey sandwich.

Veal Marsala

This is a very tasty low calorie entree. It does not include a side such as pasta, rice or potato; any of which can be satisfying. This recipe is for two 1/4 pound servings.

Chili - Meatless

A quick, tasty, nutritious Chili that is low calorie & nearly fat free. Serving size is 1 Cup.

Ginger Duckling

This was a 'signature' dish prepared at Country Place at Colony Square. The Country Place went out of business several years ago, but I still love this duck recipe. The owners of Country Place published this recipe in 1983 as their entry in an Atlanta cookbook that featured signature recipes from most of Atlanta's fine restaurants- many of which are no longer open. This recipe is much like Peking Duck - only better. The recipe calls for 3 Ducks, and is a 2-stage process. I make the Marinade as written and use a 1/3 of it when cooking one duck 1 duck: the remainder I put in bottle with screw-top and freeze. Keeps in freezer for over a year.

Leek (Onion) Soup

Recipe serves 2.

Low-Fat Pie Crust - Serving for Double Crust

This is a recipe that I adapted from Allrecipes. This crust uses vinegar that enhances the flakiness of the crust, but does not make it "sour". If you are making a single crust pie- divide the nutritional values by half. Be sure to check out the Optional ingredients which make this crust very rich tasting.
