Portobello Burgers

Portobello BurgersTake the stems off your mushrooms and clean them. Brush with olive oil and fresh garlic. Grill mushrooms. Take lean ground beef and add spices that are low sodium and low carb. I use a lot of pepper but use whatever you prefer. Mix your spices and hamburger together. Make patties 5 ounces each and grill either on the barbecue or in the oven. I use an indoor grill so the fat drains off. Take your mushrooms and pat them with paper towel so they aren’t so moist. Put one slice of cheese on patties and put the burger in between two mushrooms and voila you have a burger and no bread. You can dress the burger with PC brand ketchup that is sweetened with Splenda and has one carb per tablespoon. You can also use mustard which is low in sodium, carbs and fat. The superstore also carries veggie cheese which has one carb per slice and you would swear it was real cheese. I recommend having asparagus with this meal. It feels like fries and burgers but so very healthy for you! This is a really good and satisfying meal. Ingredients: • 2 Portobello mushrooms around the same size • Lean ground hamburger • Your favorite spice • Walden Farms ketchup • Mustard • Lettuce • Veggie cheese

Baked Mushrooms

Baked Mushrooms(Phase 1 Compatible – Studded with garlic, rubbed with olive oil and pounded thyme (Phase 1 Compatible Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Pound your thyme, chili and a little of the garlic in a pestle and mortar or shaker. Squeeze in the lemon juice and add the olive oil. With your hand or a brush, rub the mushrooms all over with this mixture. Make sure all the flavored oil is used up. Tightly pack the mushrooms together, bottom side up, in an ovenproof dish or roasting pan, and with a knife make 2-3 slits randomly over each mushroom. Insert a slice of the remaining garlic into each slit. Dot some olive oil over the mushrooms, season and bake for around 15-25 minutes – cooking time depends on the size of the mushrooms. Cook until they are soft, slightly colored and juicy. Taste one to see, continue cooking if need be. You can also use these as a topping to your favorite salad. Ingredients: Makes 4 servings • 1/3 cup of fresh thyme, leaves picked from stems • Pinch of dried chili • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely sliced • Juice of 1 lemon • 6 good glugs of extra virgin olive oil • 4-8 large flat field mushrooms (such as crimini, portobello and shitake) • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Hearty Vegetable Stew

hearty-vegetable-stewBegin by browning the meat in a skillet with garlic and onions. Start cutting up all of the veggies. Throw all of the veggies and the large can of tomatoes into a pressure cooker. This is the quickest and easiest way to preserve flavor and keep the vegetables freshest during the cooking process. If you dont know have a pressure cooker, you will need to use either a crock pot and slow cook it 6-8 hours on low. Or, you can cook all of the vegetables first, then place in big soup pot and cook for 30 minutes. If you do have a pressure cooker, once you have the meat finished cooking and the vegetables chopped poor them all into the pressure cooker. Stir them all up and add enough water to cover the top of all the foo. This typically will be about 2-3 cups( a good amount of water so you have some delicious broth to eat). Then let it cook until it steams on the pressure cooker. Once it does let it go for 2 straight minutes steaming. Then once it does that remove the pressure, let it cool and then minutes later you can safely open the lid. Your delicious soup will be complete and from start to finish it probably only took 15 minutes! One of the favorite dinners to eat :) Ingredients:( Makes 2 servings!)
  • 1 large cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 head of cabbage
  • 4 zucchini
  • 1 pound of lean ground beef
  • garlic, onion( optional)- just to add to ground beef while cooking to give it more flavor

Sushi!!

sushiBelieve it or not, I had a dieter bring me in a recipe that she made that is ALL Ideal Protein Phase 1 suitable for Sushi!! Who says a diet means you have to stop eating all of your favorite foods!! Not only does it look pretty, but it taste delicious!! She purchased a sushi mat to roll the sushi up in for 3 dollars at World Market. Roll out the seaweed onto the mat. Get cauliflower and chop it in the food procesor to make it small tiny rice like granules. Then put enough Walden Farms mayo into the chopped cauliflower just to make it a “sticky” texture. Start with just 1/2 tablespoon of WF mayo, then work up depending on the amount of caulflower you are using. Chop up your favorite vegetables. This where you can make some changes. She used asparagus, red and yellow peppers,and zucchini. But hey, have fun, play with it and see what you think taste the best! Lay all of the vegetables out( just as pictured on the right) and then begin to roll up the entire ingredients using the mat. Soy sauce is allowed on the diet. So maybe try a bit for flavor! Another option would be to even add meat. Popular sushi recipes include crab meat, tuna and shrimp. If you are a seafood person, maybe try this for your dinner meal instead of just for you lunch meal by adding that bit of protein to make your meal complete! Ingredients:
  • Seaweed
  • cauliflower
  • Walden Farms Mayo
  • Zucchini
  • Red and yellow peppers
  • Asparagus

Alfredo Pasta

Alfredo Pasta1. Shred zucchini (I use a large cheese grater) 2. Smaller zucchinis are best, as they do not have much water in them and will make a firmer pasta. Large garden zucchinis are VERY watery and should be patted with a paper towel to remove excess water. 3. Microwave for 3 minutes. 4. If you want a thicker pasta sauce, drain any water from the bowl. Otherwise, add your IP Soup packet and stir. 5. Microwave for additional 1mi nute. 6. Stir. Add any additional water if needed to bring sauce to consistency you want. 7. Add spices as desired. a) Tomato Soup (I add tabasco, cut celery pieces, basil and garlic. Sometimes also a squeeze of lime + sea salt) b) Chicken Soup (I add rosemary or thyme & oregano or turmeric (kurkuma in finnish. Its amazing) or saffron c) Leek Soup (I add basil, garlic, cut peppers, and mixed pepper (black, white, pink, chili)) d) Broccoli & Cheese (I add real broccoli) e) Mushroom (I add different kinds of mushrooms and citrus pepper with a squeeze of lemon. Often also add thyme) This would be a perfect way to get your lunch meal in for Ideal Protein Phase 1. Ingredients:
  • 1/2 zucchini (shredded)
  • 1 package IP Soup (Any flavor)
  • Spices to taste

Baked Zucchini Chips

Baked Zucchini ChipsPreheat oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil, and spray with Olive oil lighly. Set aside. Slice zucchini into thin medallions, about the thickness of a quarter. (You can either use a knife & a very steady hand, or a mandoline slicer.) Lay out slices on prepared baking sheet, and spray tops lightly with additional cooking spray. Sprinkle with sea salt or herb of your choice. (A note on seasoning, however – use LESS than what seems appropriate. These shrink considerably in the oven, and if you use too much it gets very concentrated. It’s better to end up underseasoning and add more later.) Place in preheated oven and bake 45 minutes. Rotate baking sheet, and bake an additional 30-50 minutes, until chips are browned and crisped to your liking. These are best eaten within a couple hours of removing from the oven, as they start to get chewy if left out. One zucchini makes one serving (1/4 C. – 1/3 C. of chips depending on the size of your squash). Ingredients:
  • 2 large Zucchinis
  • 1 spray of Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
