Default Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Garlic & Rosemary

I made Oven-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Garlic & Rosemary as part of our Sunday lunch today, and they were absolutely delicious.

I followed this recipe by Delia Smith, but used the sweet potatoes in place of the new potatoes.

Default Garlic and Soy Grilled Pork Chops

This recipe is featured in today's South Beach newsletter:


Quote:
Garlic and Soy Grilled Pork Chops
Serves 2

Ingredients
Grill up chunks of fresh vegetables alongside these lip-smacking pork chops for an irresistible outdoor feast. Bell pepper, sweet onion, and zucchini would work quite nicely.


2 boneless center-cut pork loin chops, trimmed of all visible fat
1/2 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Fresh herbs, for garnish

Instructions
Sprinkle the pork chops all over with soy sauce, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.

Coat a grill rack or broiler-pan rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill or broiler.

Cook the pork chops 4" from the heat, turning once halfway through cooking time, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the center of a chop registers 155°F and the juices run clear. Garnish with the herbs.

Default Apple and Almond Souffle

This recipe is featured in an article in today's South Beach newsletter:


Quote:
Apple and Almond Souffle

Phase 2
Serves 4

This is another very light and fluffy treat for dessert lovers out there. You'll notice that almonds have been included for some heart-healthy fat.

Ingredients:
3 medium baking apples, peeled, cored, and cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons sugar substitute
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
5 egg whites
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted (optional)

Instructions:
In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the apples and water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Stir in the sugar substitute and almond extract. Remove from the heat and place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. (Place a hot pad underneath the pot in the refrigerator.)

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. With a rubber spatula, gently fold into the cooled apple mixture. Spoon the mixture into a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until the soufflé is puffed and browned. Sprinkle with the almonds before serving, if using. Serve warm.

Default Turkey or Chicken Chili

Demi reminded me to put these on this thread....Thanks Demi!!

These are my versions of the SBD recipes for this dish. They are legal of phase I and beyond. Feel free to play with the ingredients and make it your own.



Turkey Chili

1 lb lean ground turkey
1 large onion
1 green pepper chopped
1 clove garlic
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 large can of kidney beans
2-3 tbs of chili powder
1 tbs. cumin

saute the onions, peppers and garlic in a little olive oil. Brown and drain the meat. Throw it all together in your chili pot and simmer. Top w/ reduced fat cheddar cheese and fat free sour cream..

I used yellow and orange peppers as well and had some small cans of that spicy v8 juice and used them as well..

I also now add in other veggies to make it more veggies. cutup zucchini and mushrooms have been great!!!
__________________

Here's my other recipe for turkey or chicken chili:


Ingredients:
2 lbs ground chicken or turkey breast 99% fat free
1 14 oz can black beans
1 14 oz can red kidney beans
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes( I use Progresso)
6 garlic cloves
1 vidalia onion
1 each yellow red and orange peppers
2-3 jalapeno peppers
??-carrots
2 chopped zucchinis
1 lb sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup cilantro
1/4 cup oregano
1/3 cup chili powder
cayenne pepper to taste
crushed red pepper to taste




I used1 can black and 1 can red of 14 oz can of beans, and this time instead of hand chopping all the veggies, ie: onions, peppers, carrots, I used the mini chopper and made my life much easier. I think that chopping it this way also makes it cook better into the chili. Added in cilantro and oregano, lots of chili powder, cayenne pepper, 2 jalapeno peppers, 28 ounce can of crushed tomato, 6 garlic cloves, 2 lbs chopped chicken, 1 lb of sliced mushrooms and 2 chopped zucchini.




Here are cooking instructions for making this chili:
1- brown the meat first
2- chop and sautee togther in olive oil and fresh garlic cloves: 1 oinion, 2 jalapenos peppers, red, orange and yellow peppers.
3- while the veggies are sauteeing, I put into a large soup pot the browned meat, the cans of crushed tomato, and 2 different kinds of beans, 1/4 cup chili powder, 1/3 cup cilantro, crushed red pepper to taste, 1/3 cup oregano
4- when the veggies are finished sauteeing, about 15 m inutes, put everything into the soup pot and bring it to a boil slowly stirring it all up.
5- as its coming up to a boil, I put in 1 lb of sliced mushrooms and 2 chopped up zucchinis.
6- I allow this to cook at a slow boil and covered for about 1 hour, taste testing to add what it needs. I do use some Morton lite salt but not much at all.
7- my recipe changes each time I make it so please feel free to make it yours by adding or deleting your own items.

Enjoy!! This amount makes up a huge pot which I then freeze in 3 cup containers for 6 other meals!!

Default Fresh Herb and Quinoa Salad With Garden Tomatoes

From today's South Beach (free version) email newsletter:



Fresh Herb and Quinoa Salad With Garden Tomatoes


Serves 2, with leftover quinoa

Description

Quinoa is a high-fiber grain that's loaded with protein. More good news: You can find it in your local supermarket or health food store, and it cooks in just 6 minutes! Here, we've substituted quinoa for bulgur in a version of the zesty Middle Eastern salad, tabbouleh.

Ingredients
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup quinoa
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
3 scallions (white and light green parts), thinly sliced
1 small cucumber, peeled and diced
3 tablespoons lightly packed fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
3 large beefsteak tomatoes, preferably a mixture of red and yellow
2 oz. low-fat feta cheese

Instructions
1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil over high heat. Add quinoa and a pinch of salt; bring back to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for about 6 minutes, until nearly all the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender and chewy but not soft.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine juice, oil, salt, and pepper. Fold in quinoa, scallions, cucumber, and herbs. Toss until thoroughly coated. Season to taste as desired.

3. Slice tomatoes thinly. Arrange on serving plates. Spoon about 1 cup quinoa over tomatoes. Crumble feta on top. Serve immediately.

Default Simple Pancakes

Hi, just thought I would add in my crepe recipe, it's simple and tasty and you can use them cold as wraps as well as eating them hot like pancakes

To make 3 medium sized crepes all you need is:

3oz low fat cream cheese
3 medium eggs

Mix the two together (I use a whizzy hand mixer) and let rest for 5 minutes

Heat up a non stick pan (with a little spray oil of some kind if you like) and pour the mix in, cooking on medium heat on both sides and voila! Simple pancakes which taste incredibly authentic!

Thought I would add this for Phase 1 people who might be into eggs in the morning. This is what i have every morning and it's wonderful.

Chocolate Tofu Smoothie
4 oz lite tofu (I use Mori-Nu extra firm silken)
1/2 cup 1% milk
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/4 cup cottage cheese (haven't tried it with ricotta but I guess you could do that)
2-4 packets splenda (to taste)
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp natural nut butter
dash vanilla
2-3 ice cubes

Blend all well. It comes to a sort of milkshake consistency. I've also tried it with instant decaf coffee instead of the cocoa powder and it's a good coffee shake.

Default Armand Salad

From today's South Beach (free edition) email newsletter:


Armand Salad

From the menu of "Joe's Stone Crab," 11 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. In 1913, Joe Weiss opened a small lunch counter in Miami Beach. For 90 years, no visit to Miami Beach has been complete without a stop at Joe's. Open during stone crab season (Oct 15-May 15), Joe's is a must for visiting celebrities. Still family owned and operated, Joe's is a Miami landmark.

Phase 1

Serves 2

Ingredients
2/3 small clove garlic
Dash salt
Pinch pepper
1/3 teaspoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 teaspoon red wine vinegar (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 head romaine lettuce, outer leaves removed, washed, dried, torn into bite-size pieces, and chilled
1/3 small head iceberg lettuce, outer leaves removed, washed, dried, torn into bite-size pieces, and chilled
2 2/3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/6 sweet white onion, sliced thin
2 2/3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 green bell pepper for garnish

Instructions
To make the dressing: In a salad bowl mash the garlic, salt and pepper to a paste. Add the mayonnaise, continuing to mash until smooth. Mix in the lemon juice and vinegar, if using. Gradually whisk in the olive oil.

Add the romaine and iceberg lettuce, parsley, onion, and the Parmesan. Toss gently. Pile the mixture into shallow salad bowls, sprinkle with a little Parmesan, and serve.

Garnish with bell pepper, if using.

At Joe's, the Armand salad is served at lunch only, and garlic croutons top the dish. In order to keep this within Phase 1, we have omitted the croutons. If you're visiting the famous Joe's, you can ask that the croutons be left off. The stone crabs are great on any phase!
