Okay..... this isn't so much a "recipe" as just an "idea". I made it last weekend and it was very good. NONE Of the measurements are exact, except for the quinoa.

No-Name Vegan Stew

1 C quinoa

2 quarts (about) of vegetable broth

1 1/2 quarts (about) of V-8 juice or other vegetable juice

1 can of whole kernel corn, drained (or frozen equivalent)

1 can of kidney beans drained and rinsed. (or dried/soaked equivalent)

chopped carrots (2-3 large)

chopped celery (3-4 large stalks)

1 can diced tomatoes with italian herbs (not drained)

1 chopped onion



Bring all of the above (except quinoa) to a boil. Add 1 C of quinoa. Turn down to medium and cover and cook about 10-15 minutes (stirring occasionally).

The quinoa thickens the "soup" so it is a bit more like a stew. It is a complete protein with the quinoa and the beans.

Any assortment of veggies could be used.... this just happened to be what I had on hand. It might be nice to add summer squash or kale near the end of the cooking.

Liquid amounts are approximate..... I was using a batch of homemade vegetable stock, so I'm not sure how much it was.... and I was using up the remainder of a bottle of V-8. I prefer the Bolthouse Farms fresh vegetable juice, but it is pricey, so I use V-8 sometimes.

I added a bit of salt at the end, but I tasted it first.... the canned corn, V-8, and beans can be salty. I didn't add pepper because I don't like it, but you certainly could. I also added a few dashes of "italian herb blend".

Good luck.....................P

Moroccan Couscous salad (inspired by the moroccan pavilion at Epcot)

1 box of plain couscous -cooked, fluffed, and cooled

2-4 Tb. EVOO (more or less to taste.... I find it just fine with only 2 Tb)

1 Tb. lemon juice

few splashes of rice wine vinegar

2 Tb. sugar

Dashes of nutmeg, allspice, cumin, salt

1 can of chick peas, drained and rinsed

1 C of raisins

Optional: 1/2 C diced bell pepper, 1/2 C chopped vidalia onion

Make dressing with EVOO, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, and spices. Stir until well combined and sugar has dissolved. Pour dressing over cooled couscous. Add remaining ingredients and toss to combine.

Tastes better when refrigerated for at least 1 hour before serving.

** This was inspired by a side dish I tried in the Moroccan counter service pavilion at Epcot last year. I don't usually add the peppers or onions, but I know there were some in the original. I use whole wheat couscous, but any kind of plain couscous is fine. You could also try Craisins and maybe nuts.

I really love this stuff.... too much! I don't have the calorie or points breakdown here in front of me right now, sorry.

Requested from the Meal Planning Thread

Almost every recipe I have I have specific Adaptions I have made, and this one is no exception. As made it comes out more like a soup-- just way to much liquid so I just cut the liquids in half. And as nice as pearl onions are they are expensive, hard to find and an absolute pain to use so after one use we decided they aren't worth the trouble or money.

If you want to use Pearl Onions and have never prepared them here is a site with easy to follow directions: http://startcooking.com/blog/202/How...l-Pearl-Onions

Oh, and I brown everything (steps 2 and 3) on the stove, add the wine to that pan to deglaze (dissolve all the yummy bits stuck to the pan) and then dump it all into a crock pot and carry on with step 4. I let it cook all day until it is falling apart.

New Beef Burgundy
from one of the South Beach Cookbooks
Phase 2

Ingredients

* 1/4 c whole wheat flour
* 1/4 t salt
* 1/4 t pepper
* 1.5 lb round steak, top or bottom, cubed
* 2 T olive oil
* 1/2 lb pearl onions ( could substitute regular onions, chopped)
* 1 lb mushrooms, quartered
* 3 cloves minced garlic
* 3 c burgundy wine (I cut to 1.5 cups)
* 4 c beef broth (I cut to 2 cups)
* 1/4 c tomato paste
* 1 t unsweetened cocoa powder
* 2 bay leaves
* 1/4 c italian parsley, chopped

Directions

1. In ziploc bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add beef and toss to coat well.
2. Heat 1 T oil in saucepan over med high, add beef, and cook 5 min until brown. Transfer to a plate.
3. Add remaining oil and saute onions, mushrooms, garlic 10 min until lightly browned.
4. Add wine, broth, tom paste, cocoa powder, bay leaves, and beef. Bring to boil, then reduce to low and simmer for 2 hours.
5.Discard bay leaves and sprinkle with parsley.

Thanks, LTS! Now I don't have to plan Saturday night's dinner!

They have frozen pearl onions that are ready to go around here -- I think I will try those as ITA that pearl onions are more trouble than they are worth. Shallots might be a good substitute, too.

My kids prefer Egg Noodles so that is what we use, but it would be good with either. It would also be good on a bed of Mashed Potatoes or with Roasted Potatoes but that isn't South Beach friendly! Make sure to add a good green veggie like broccoli with it.

whoa - looks like our thread is getting spammed - lol!

i make this last night and it was really delicious. i don't know the nutrition value but i'd venture to say it's pretty good for you. maybe you could just use one boullion cube to make it less salty but i liked it with two

Pork Chops and Rice

2 Tbs olive oil
4 pork chops
1 can diced tomatos (approximately 16 oz)
1 cup uncooked brown rice, do not use quick cooking rice
2 1/2 Cups hot water
2 beef bouillon cubes

Put oil in large skillet on medium heat till hot.
Brown all pork chops about 4-5 minutes per side
open can of tomatos and pour over pork chops
Pour uncooked rice around and between the porkchops. Its ok if some gets on top.
Dissolve both bouillon cubes in the hot water, doesn't matter if they don't dissolve completely, and pour over the chops.
Cover and cook on low heat for approximately 1 hour.

I made an excellent crockpot meal last week from the Crockpot Recipes thread over on the Budget Board. Not SUPER "diet", but yummy and healthy.

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....367027&page=16

Post #230.

**The changes I made:**

I used lean boneless pork loin chops because DS is allergic to chicken.

I doubled the beans and added an additional can of diced tomatoes to make go further and make it a "less meat" meal.

I used about 3/4 block of reduced fat cream cheese. Next time I will use just half a block.... it was more than enough.


It was more "liquidy" than I anticipated and so we weren't able to eat it on wraps..... instead we just put it in stew bowls. But everyone loved it!

Sorry.... can't provide NI or points or calorie count. ................P
