Steak and Magic "Mashed" Potatoes

The star of this show is what looks like naughty mashed potatoes but is really a gorgeous cauliflower surprise. This is served with a firey grilled eggplant (eggplant, olive oil, habanero tabasco and Indian chili with sea salt) covered with sliced paprika (I used from a jar and rose pepper steak)

Ingredients:
Cauliflower (I use frozen bags. I cant taste the difference and its easier and less expensive than fresh)
2-4 tsp olive oil
1 oz milk (from your morning milk allowance)
Sea Salt + Black Pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder or fresh crushed garlic (more or less or none at all to taste)
Optional: White Pepper and Herb Salt (like Mrs Dash or Herbamare)
Optional: 2 tsp horseradish (I use from a tube. I think this is mandatory, as it gives a little kick and helps make the cauliflower taste change into a more rounded gourmet mashed potato flavor)
Optional: 1/8 to 1/2 tsp Chili powder (I use Indian chili powder for the best taste. Found at most Asian markets)

steak_and_mashed_cauli.jpg

Preparation:

1. Roast cauliflower until cooked at 200-210 C for about 10-15 minutes depending on your oven. You can also boil it, but the taste will not be as rich as roasting. I recommend roast!
2. Add 1 oz nonfat milk to a blender or food processor (the milk you didnt use from your morning coffee. :-) )
3. Add in the cauliflower and smash it down with a fork.
4. Add sea salt/ pepper to taste. (I use Herbamare spicy, white pepper, black pepper, and rose pepper)
5. Add 1-2 teaspoons Olive Oil
6. Add other spices as desired.
If available, add 1 teaspoon Imitation Butter Flavor
7. Blend until desired consistency. Both creamy and chunky versions are both excellent.
8. Add fresh parsley for garnish

"I have also made this using both cauliflower and broccoli which makes a different and unique new taste that you will come to crave." - Submitted by Finn Steven from "3 Fat Chicks on a Diet"


         

Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Tomato Sauce (BBQ)

(Phases 1-4)
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients:

Sauce:
8 ripe, plum tomatoes, stems removed
1 jalapeno, stem removed and seeded
1/2 cup tightly packed fresh basil leaves
1/3 cup roughly chopped French shallots
1/4 cup tightly packed fresh cilantro leaves
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons minced garlic
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Rub: 1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Splenda or Stevia
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 large or 2 small pork tenderloins, about 1 pound total
extra virgin olive oil

pork_tenderloin.jpg

Preparation:
Sauce: grill the tomatoes and jalapeno over direct high heat until black and blistered in spots. The tomatoes will take 4 to 6 minutes and the jalapeno will take 2 to 3 minutes. Put the tomatoes and jalapeno in a food processor along with the other sauce ingredients, including salt and pepper to taste, and process until smooth. Transfer the sauce to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and allow to cook until the sauce has thickened slightly, 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Rub: in a small bowl combine the rub ingredients and crush them together with your fingertips. Trim excess fat and silver skin from the tenderloins. Lightly brush or spray the tenderloins with olive oil. Spread the rub all over the tenderloin and press the spices into the surface of the meat. Grill the tenderloins over direct medium heat until the centers are barely pink, 15 t0 20 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Remove it from the grill and cover loosely with foil. Allow to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm with the sauce.

The truth is, the rub in this recipe is so good that the meat doesn't even need a sauce, but if tomatoes are in season, whip up this cooked salsa for a colorful flourish. Fire-roast the vegetables over direct high heat, then cook the meat over direct medium heat.

Tandoori-Style Chicken (BBQ)

(Phases 1-4)
Preparation: 15 minutes
Marinating Time: 24 hours
Cooking: 45 to 60 minutes
Servings: 6


Ingredients:


Marinade:
16 oz. plain yogurt 0% fat
1 Tablespoon grated ginger root
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

grilled_tandoori_style_chicken.jpg

Preparation:
For the marinade: in a medium bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place chicken pieces in a Ziploc bag set into a deep bowl. Pour marinade over chicken and close bag. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight, turning bag occasionally to distribute marinade. Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Set barbeque to medium-low heat. Place chicken pieces, bone side down, in center of cooking grate. Grill 45 to 60 minutes or until chicken is tender and juices run clear, brushing with reserved marinade during the last 15 minutes of grilling time. Serve with sliced cucumber.

Tandoori is a mixture of spices commonly used in Indian cuisine. It is a fine red-brown powder. It has a very rich and subtle taste, which gets enhanced when cooked. It is not very spicy(less than chilli powder or curry for instance) and very aromatic. Ingredients used to make tandoori may vary in number and proportion but it is normally made with the following spices: mild pepper, paprika, garlic, chilli pepper, thyme, cilantro, salt, cumin, black pepper, celery, caraway, rosemary, clove, bay leaves, and cinnamon.

Ginger and Coriander Skewered Steaks(BBQ or oven)

(Phases 1-4)
Preparation: 15 minutes
Marinating Time: minimum 1 hour
Cooking: 10 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients:

8 x 2 oz tenderloin steaks, 1-inch thick
4 green onions
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/3 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons grated onion
2 Tablespoons fresh grated ginger root
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon turmeric
salt, to taste

Preparation:
Place 2 steaks side by side on a tray. Push one skewer diagonally through both steaks. Push a second skewer diagonally, in the opposite direction to the first skewer, to secure the 2 steaks together, forming a cross with the 2 skewers. Thread half of a green onion on to the pointed end of each of the skewers. Repeat with remaining steaks, skewers, and green onions. Combine lime juice, olive oil, onion, ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, coriander, turmeric and salt in a bowl. Pour mixture over skewered steaks. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

 

Grilling instructions:
On barbecue, grill over medium-high heat for 3 minutes per side for rare, 4 minutes per side for medium rare, 6 minutes per side for well done.
In oven, preheat broiler. Broil for 3 minutes per side for rare, 4 minutes per side for medium rare, 6 minutes per side for well done.

Skewer and marinate steaks up to 8 hours in advance. Cover and refrigerate. For a complete meal, serve these brochettes with a vegetarian chop suey. It is so easy to stir-fry some vegetables! And for the sauce, simply add the reserved marinade of the brochettes that you will have boiled beforehand. And make sure vegetables remain crispy-they are so much tastier and more nutritious that way!

(The blade roast is a cut of meat taken from the shoulder primal cut of beef, pork, lamb, or veal. The beef shoulder primal is often referred to the chuck primal cut. The blade roasts are cut from the upper portion of the shoulder and generally contain a higher amount of fat, which provides tenderness and flavor to the meat. Blade roasts are best cooked using a moist heat method such as braising or stewing, but they can also be oven roasted if they are of the highest quality and they are not overcooked.)

Pantry Pork Chops

(Phases 1-4)
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Marinating & Waiting Time: 60 minutes
Servings: 4

Marinade Ingredients:
1/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Splenda or Stevia
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 pork rib chops, about 1 1/4 inch thick each

pantry pork chops_1.jpg

Preparation:

 

Marinade: in a medium bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place the chops in a large plastic bag (Ziploc) and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove the chops from the bag and discard the marinade. Allow to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling. Sear the chops over direct high heat for 6 minutes, turning once halfway through searing time. Continue grilling over indirect medium heat until the juices run clear, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Indirect Barbeque Cooking: the indirect method is similar to roasting, but with the added benefits of that grilled texture, flavor, and appearance that you can't get from an oven. Heat rises, reflects off the lid and inside surfaces of the grill, and slowly cooks the food evenly on all sides. The circulating heat works much like a convection oven, so there's no need to turn the food. Use the indirect method for foods that require 25 minutes or more of grilling time. Examples include roasts, ribs, whole chickens, turkeys, and other large cuts of meat, as well as delicate fish fillets. To grill by the indirect method on a gas grill, preheat the grill with all burners on high. Then adjust the burners on each side of the food to the temperature noted in the recipe and turn off the burner(s) directly below the food. For best results, place roasts, poultry, or large cuts of meat on a roasting rack set inside a disposable heavy-gauge foil pan. For longer cooking times, add water to the foil pan to keep drippings from burning.

1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried hot red-pepper flakes
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 cup sliced almonds, roasted

turkey_cutlets.jpg

Preparation:

Whisk together vinegar, garlic, red-pepper flakes, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until salt is dissolved. Add 3 Tablespoons oil in a slow stream, whisking until combined well, then whisk in almonds and cilantro. Set the grill at high heat. Whisk together coriander, cinnamon, remaining 1 Tablespoon oil, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a shallow bowl. Turn escalopes to coat in spice mixture. Grill turkey, turning once, until just cooked through, about 3 minutes total. Transfer to a platter. Spoon almond sauce over turkey.

(Turkey is low in fat and high in protein and vitamins. It is an inexpensive source of iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium and B vitamins. Turkey is low in saturated fat thus; it could be integrated to a preventative diet against cardiovascular diseases. Its high level of selenium could also contribute to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, because turkey protein is rarely allergen, this poultry is particularly interesting for people suffering from food allergies.)

homemade_spaghetti_sauce_04.jpg

Preparation:

Brown turkey or ground beef, add garlic powder while cooking meat for more flavorful sauce, drain off any fat, add all vegetables and water, except tomatoes. Cook on low with lid until vegetables are cooked through.

In a blender or food processor, puree 6 of the tomatoes, add the Italian seasoning, garlic, red pepper flakes, and give it another little whirl. You need to boil this for about 20 minutes and skim off the water and froth. Pour into cooked ground turkey or ground beef mixture, turn on low heat. Chop remaining 2 tomatoes however small or large you like your chunks in sauce, add to mixture and simmer on low for 20-30 minutes. This makes 4-6 cups of sauce. Can freeze for use later.

2 tablespoons cumin
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/8- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne- depends on how spicy you like it


Preparation:
Mix all ingredients well and store in an airtight jar. Use 2 tablespoons of seasonings per pound of meat, which is about right. Recipe makes about 8 tablespoons, or 4 batches worth.

Used with lean ground beef or turkey, this would be great for a taco salad with fresh salsa.

Wash and break apart one head of cauliflower.

Preparation:

In a container you can put a lid on, put cauliflower in drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder, chili powder, salt, pepper.
Add lid and shake it until cauliflower is coated. Put in metal 9x13 pan, cover with aluminum foil, bake at 350 for 20 minutes, take out remove foil, put back in oven for another 10-15 minutes. When it comes out, it is almost crunchy like deep fat fried cauliflower. If you dip it in the Walden Farms ranch dip it's even closer.

Focaccia Chocolate Flax Bread

(Phases 3-4)

2 cups Bob's Red Mill flaxseed meal (can be purchased in the health food section of most grocery stores)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3-4 Tablespoons Splenda
2-3 Tablespoons of cocoa powder
5 beaten eggs
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil

BobsRedMillFlaxseedMealFront.jpg


Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare pan (a 10 X 15 bar pan) with Pam spray.

1) Mix dry ingredients well -- a whisk works well.
2) Add wet to dry, and combine well. Make sure there aren't obvious strings of egg white hanging out in the batter.
3) Let batter set for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.)
4) Pour batter onto pan. Because it's going to tend to mound in the middle, you'll get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center somewhat, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan (you can go all the way to the edge, but it will be thinner).
5) Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browning even more than flax already is.
6) Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want.

At least 12 servings, each piece of bread has less than one gram of carbohydrate -- .8 to be exact -- plus 5 grams of fiber.  Very easy to mix and bake.....

Mixed Green Salad from the Greek Islands

(Phases 1-4)
Preparation: 10 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients:
Dressing:

3 to 4 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 to 3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
freshly ground black pepper

Salad:
1 small head romaine lettuce, cored and leaves separated
1 bunch arugula, trimmed and finely chopped
3 to 4 sprigs watercress, finely chopped
3 green onions, thinly sliced
4 sprigs fresh dill, finely chopped
3 to 4 sprigs fresh mint, thinly sliced
1/2 cup coarsely grated cucumber
1 small fennel bulb, trimmed and very finely chopped or grated
salt

Preparation:
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, and plenty of pepper. Set aside. Stack half the lettuce leaves, roll them up and cut crosswire into thin slices. Repeat with the remaining lettuce leaves. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce and other greens, green onions, dill, mint, cucumber, and fennel. Whisk the dressing again and pour it over the salad. Add salt to taste, toss, and serve.

It is important to cut the greens at the last moment and to slice them very thin. If they are coarsely cut, the salad will taste different. Serve this salad with pork tenderloin or add Ideal Protein smoked soy nuts.

Seafood_20salad.jpg

Preparation:
In a large bowl or a salad bowl, mix salad ingredients. In a small bowl, mix all dressing ingredients. Stir dressing in salad and let marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours so that the aromas mix well. Serve chilled over a bed of leaf lettuce.

(Seafood quantities are not precise but this will allow you to adjust depending on your preferences. So if you are a big fan of pollock, be generous! And don't hesitate to ask your fish vendor for advice-he will surely have lots of interesting ideas to personalize this salad. You can also add your favorite vegetables but make sure to cut them in small chunks and not to add too much-this would alter the taste of the seafood.

Raspberry Dash Salad Dressing

(Phases 1-4)
(Raspberry Flavored Gelatin)

Ingredients:

1/2 teaspoon Ideal Protein Raspberry Flavored Gelatin
1/2 teaspoon of Mrs. Dash "Garlic and Herb" salt-free seasoning blend
1 Tablespoon of your favorite olive oil

Preparation:

Stir together the Ideal Protein Raspberry Flavored Gelatin and the "Garlic and Herb" Seasoning. Drizzle the olive oil over a salad and toss. Now toss and sprinkle in the combined Raspberry Dash dressing and enjoy! Tip: keep a pre-mixed dressing shaker with you to take into restaurants. Variations: create a dipping sauce by mixing in(small amounts of) lemon juice and the olive oil ahead of time. (After a while, the gelatin sets up and settles to the bottom, so stir the mixture up as you dip. It makes little globs, bursting with flavor, which sticks loosely to what you are dipping (celery never tasted so good!)

Guilt Free Italian Dressing/Marinade

(Phases 1-4)

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup White or Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup Water

Bragg_s.jpg

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients in a bottle (something you can shake). This can be used on salads or on your meat before cooking. This will yield 6-8 cups of salad or a whole head of lettuce. I put lettuce in a bowl with fresh veggies, pour dressing on, lid the bowl, and shake it. This will coat the lettuce nicely and the rest will go to the bottom of the bowl so you aren't drowning the salad.
Reminds me of Olive Garden salad!

IDEAL PROTEIN DRINKS

         

CARAMEL FRAPPUCCINO (IP Butterscotch Pudding)
What a great idea from the "It's A Breeze" Clinic from Tampa, FL. For non-coffee drinkers, substitute herbal tea (Like Yogi Tea's Cinnamon Spice or Roobois African Spice)...a healthy alternative to Starbuck's Dulce de Leche Frappaccino. Slash calories and fat but not tastiness!

Ingredients:


1 Ideal Protein Butterscotch Pudding Mix
1-3 tsp of cinnamon (original recipe calls for 1 TB, but I think that's too much)
1 packet of Splenda or Truvia
1/4 cup of ice
8 oz of cooled coffee (or 2 teabags of herbal tea such as Yogi Tea Roobios African Spice)

caramel_frappacino.jpg

Directions:

Blend all ingredients until a frappuccino/ smoothie texture develops. Pop in a straw and enjoy!

Variations:  use herbal tea instead of coffee...  also, try this with the Strawberry Pudding adding1 tsp of cardamom in addition to the cinnamon and Wild Strawberry African Roobios herbal tea.


         

Caramel Macchiato (almost like Starbucks!)

Mix brewed coffee, some Walden Farms Caramel Syrup and Ideal Protein Vanilla Drink

LEMON POPPY SEED MUFFINS (IP Lemon Pudding)

Ingredients:
2 beaten egg whites
1 Package IP Lemon Pudding
1 cup or more shredded zucchini
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 small package Truvia, Splenda or other sweetener (about 1 tsp)
1 tsp or more cinnamon
Up to 1 TB poppy seeds (more or less to taste
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger powder

lemon_poppy_seed_muffins.jpg

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 180 C (bout 350 F)
1. Grate zucchini (I used a little over 1.5 cups). Use a paper towel to soak up the moisture/water from the zucchini. (This is important to not have the bread be too wet)
2. Dust the shredded zucchini with the various spices (poppy seeds, cinnamon, ginger nutmeg) and the sweetener (Truvia) and let sit for about 2-5 minutes.
3. While waiting, beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until they hold a shape. You can add 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar to thicken if desired.
4. Add in IP Lemon pudding & baking powder. Blend.
5. Add in zucchini (and rum/vanilla extract if using) and blend.
6. Spray a muffin tin with Pam or other non-stick spray.
7. Pour batter into muffin tins. I made 7 med size filling each 3/4 way up. It will also make 6 large if you want.
8. Cook for about 15-20 minutes until top turns dark, but not burned. (Watch carefully).

NOTE: This "bread" will puff up gorgeously when baking, but will deflate after taking from the oven. You can try cooking a bit longer or just enjoy the funny looking, but tasty treats as they fall.


         

Pudding Cakes

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-In a blender, combine 2 egg whites, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (for vanilla pudding) or ¼ tsp. almond extract if using strawberry pudding, and 2 oz. of water and stevia sweetener (to taste) Blend well.
-Pour liquid contents into a bowl, and gently fold in (1) Ideal Protein pudding packet (add a little powder at a time, mix it up, add a little more, etc.) The final result is a "batter" similar to brownies.
-To bake, you can use (2) small Corning ware dishes -or- make them in a muffin tin*, and divide them into (3) equal muffins - or- use a mini muffin tin (makes 12). Spray the bottom of the dish with Pam so the cakes won't stick.

The cakes will get VERY large while baking, and will deflate when cooling. If you put too much batter into a small baking dish, your cakes will literally explode in the oven. It is VERY important to only fill the baking dish or muffin tin 1/2 way, which is why you will get 2 small cakes or 3 muffins.

-Bake at 350 for 15-16 minutes. Let cool and enjoy a mini cake.

pudding_cakes.jpg

*If you are making the cakes in a muffin tin, fill the empty muffin "holes" with water so that the cakes bake evenly.

Note:  If these are too "eggy" for you, try adding 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder to your batter before baking.


         

Raspberry and Lemon Cream with Basil

1. Make Ideal Protein Raspberry Jelly with more water than instructed. (use 200g using measuring cups)

2. Pour evenly into 6 "pots de creme" cups. (Glass is best so you can see the beautiful layers.)

3. Put in refrigerator to set.

4. When set (approx 2 hours), make the Lemon Pudding using more water than instructed (use a little over 200g)

5. Pour evenly over the set raspberry jelly.

6. Garnish with a leaf of Basil.

Rhubarb-Strawberry Dessert

2 cups of rhubarb, cooked until soft, then add a touch of Walden Farms Strawberry Syrup and a slight dash of Walden Farms Maple Syrup.  (The rhubarb counts as 2 cups of veggies for one of your side dishes, at lunch or dinner...  a nice change from regular green vegetables!)

Key Lime Tarts

(Phases 1-4)
(Maple Oatmeal)
Equivalent to 2 Ideal Protein servings
Makes approximately 6 tarts

Ingredients:

Filling
4 + 1 packets of True Lime flavoring (approximately 1 level teaspoon)
3 ounces of water
Splenda or Stevia, to taste
1 packet of Ideal Protein Vanilla Pudding

Crust
1 packet of Ideal Protein Maple Oatmeal
1 egg white
1 to 1 1/2 ounces of water

Meringue
2 egg whites for meringue

Mini-muffin baking cups
Non-stick spray

7_10_11_Mini_Key_Lime_Pies_2.jpg

Preparation:

Filling: dissolve True Lime flavoring in water. Add a little Stevia or Splenda to taste. The taste should be sweet but tart. Add the contents of one Ideal Protein Vanilla pudding and mix well until smooth. No lumps. The consistency will be thicker than your normal pudding. Cover and refrigerate.
For the crust: pre-heat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the packet of Ideal Protein Maple Oatmeal with the egg white and water, just enough for a stiff but manageable dough to form. Lightly coat your muffin tins with non-stick spray. Moisten your hands(if you don't, the 'dough' will stick to your fingers) and form little balls using approximately 2 to 3 teaspoons of dough. Place one dough ball in each baking cup. Press dough down as thinly as possible across the bottom and the sides forming a little 'cup'(the dough will "poof" a little during baking). Bake for approximately 5 minutes or longer, if necessary. For crispy tart shells, remove them from the muffin tin and place them upside down on fop of the tin and bake for a few more minutes until golden brown. If the cup cake shells are too thick, don't bother, as they will be too hard. Cool on a wire rack. Take key lime filing out of the refrigerator and stir in the last packet of True Lime flavoring to give your filling an extra tangy Florida key lime bite.
For the meringue: beat two egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fill 'pastry' shells till not quite full. Garnish with a small dollop of meringue and a tiny slice of paper-thin slice of fresh lime.
