Talking Munchies!

Zucchini Sticks with Honey-Mustard Mayo (haven't tried the sauce, but the zucchini sticks are GREAT with maranara!)
POINTS: 2
INSTRUCTIONS

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
4 medium zucchini, ends trimmed, cut into 12 x 1-inch sticks each
3 medium egg white(s), lightly beaten
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Mix well with a fork to combine. Add zucchini sticks and turn to coat. Place egg whites and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes. Add zucchini to egg whites and turn to coat. Transfer to bread crumbs and turn to coat.

Place coated zucchini on prepared baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Bake 40 minutes, until golden brown.

Crab Rangoon - Tried - good
POINTS: 4
INSTRUCTIONS

2 sprays cooking spray
2 tsp olive oil
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
2 medium scallion(s), minced
2 Tbsp snow peas, chopped
6 oz canned crabmeat, drained
4 oz light cream cheese
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
24 items wonton wrapper(s), half of a 12 oz package

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, scallions and snow peas and sauté until just tender, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in crabmeat, cream cheese and soy sauce with a wooden spoon; mix gently to combine.

Place wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Drop crab mixture by teaspoonfuls onto the center of each wrapper. Dip a finger into water and use it to moisten edges of wrapper; fold over one corner of wrapper to make a triangle and press sides together to seal. Create decorative lines along the edges of the wontons by pressing the tines of a fork along the bottom edge of each wonton.

Transfer filled wontons to prepared baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Bake until wontons are golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Yields 4 pieces of crab rangoon per serving.

Buffalo Chicken Dip - Mine - very good
From the kitchen of LADYLILION

Servings | 16
Estimated POINTS® value per serving | 4
Course | Snacks

Ingredients
1 pound chicken breast, cooked, skinless
1/2 cup hot pepper sauce
16 oz light cream cheese (softened)
1 cup Reduced-Calorie Original Ranch Dressing
2 cup Finely Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese

Instructions
shred chicken (mine was just boiled for ease of cooking), heat in large skillet with hot sauce (I used Franks). add ranch and cream cheese and cook over med heat until melted and well blended. mix in as much cheddar cheese as you like. Put in 9 x 13 pan and cook in oven at 325 until bubbly. (1/2 hour?) melt remaining cheddar on top. (2% tends to harden when cooked on top, so mixing it in works better.) Serve with celery sticks.

Special Notes
makes a 9 x 13 pan so 16 BIG servings - maybe. You probably get a lot more than 16 servings.

Yummy Cheese Spread - Mine - very good
From the kitchen of LADYLILION

Servings | 24
Estimated POINTS® value per serving | 1
Course | Snacks

Ingredients
3 boxes of Fat Free cream cheese
3 pkgs Carl Budding roast beef (the 2.5 oz size)
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T Accent seasoning
1-2 bunches of green onions

Instructions
Chop beef and mix all ingredients together. Make into ball, place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap, chill and serve. Wonderful on celery and crackers - don't forget, crackers have points!

This is a spread if you use FF cheese. If you use full-fat cream cheese it gets nice and firm and makes a cheese ball, but the points go through the roof!

Pizza Rustica (meat pie, Pizza gaina) (untried)
From the kitchen of CHEFKID3

Servings | 16
Estimated POINTS® value per serving | 5
Course | Snacks

Ingredients
1 serving Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish 9-Inch Pie Crust
1 1/2 pound fat-free ricotta cheese
1/4 pound Boar's Head 42% Lower Sodium Ham
1/4 pound Boar's Head Sopressata Veneta
1/4 pound pepperoni
6 oz whole milk mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions
Heat oven to 425.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Place ingredients in deep dish pie crust and tap on counter to smooth out.
Top with additional crust. Be sure to cut either slits or shapes into crust to vent out the steam.

You can use an egg wash if you would like to make the crust nice and shiny.

Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then reduce to 350 for 40 mins, or until golden brown.

Special Notes
You can make this with a little less points if you use all low salt and ff ingredients!


Veggie Weggies - Tried - very good
From the kitchen of TWTY76

Servings | 24
Estimated POINTS® value per serving | 2
Course | Snacks

Ingredients

Pillsbury Reduced-Fat Crescent Rolls, (2 can);
Kraft Fat-Free Mayonnaise (1 cup);

1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip/dressing mix.
any kind of veggies you like (diced);
Shredded fat-free cheddar cheese;

Instructions
On a cookie sheet, spread out crescent rolls as flat as you can get them. You kind of want it to be a little thin. Bake as required. Let it cool & while cooling mix together mayonnaise, cream cheese (make sure is softened well), & ranch dip until completely blended. Spread mixture on top of them evenly, top with your favorite veggies & fat-free shredded cheese. Cut them into squares & enjoy!!

Special Notes
Try changing up the recipe & using sour cream instead of the mayonnaise. I like this recipe because I have a problem sometimes getting my vegetables in each day & with these its no problem!

Default Quinoa, Black Bean and Corn Salad

If you can find Red Inca Quinoa - that's really good. If you haven't eaten it before, seriously rinse it well. It naturally has a coating that tastes bad if you don't, but once it is rinsed well, it is DELICIOUS!! I don't bother cooking the corn, frozen corn just thawed is perfectly tasty.

2 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh or frozen corn, simmered until tender
(reserve 1/2 cup cooking liquid)
1 cup cooked black beans
1/4 cup quinoa, rinsed thoroughly
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds or powder
1 medium tomato, cut into small dice
2 tablespoons red onions, minced

Directions:

Mix lemon or lime juice, olive oil, cilantro and salt in a small glass bowl and set aside. Bring reserved corn cooking liquid to a boil in small saucepan. Add quinoa and cumin; cover and simmer until quinoa absorbs the liquid and is tender (about 10 minutes). Transfer quinoa to a large glass bowl; cool slightly. Add corn, black beans, tomato, red onions and dressing. Toss to combine. Cover and chill for about 4 hours. Serves 4.

Default Gingered Chicken Breast

INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat the skillet on medium-high until hot. Add the chicken. Cook, turning once, until tender, about 8 minutes.

I posted this on the WW recipes board, but these were so amazing, that I had to share them with you all!

Here's the recipe from the Weight Watchers website...although, I did it a bit differently...I'll explain at the bottom...

Chicken Fajitas
POINTS: 8
INSTRUCTIONS

8 medium tortilla, flour, fat-free, regular or whole wheat
2 tsp olive oil
1 pound marinated chicken breast strips
1 pound frozen mixed vegetables, fajita-style
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/2 cup salsa



Preheat oven to 300ºF.


Wrap tortillas in foil. Bake until warm, about 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until cooked through, stirring frequently, about 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a serving plate, cover with foil and transfer to oven to keep warm.


In same skillet over medium-high heat, sauté frozen vegetables until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Serve chicken and vegetables with warm tortillas, sour cream and salsa. Yields about 2 tortillas, 3 ounces chicken, 1/2 cup vegetables and 2 tablespoons each sour cream and salsa per serving.

If you are using your own chicken, and not store bought, use 1 tsp. Liquid Smoke, and 1 tsp. hot sauce to create the marinade.

Instead of using a bag of frozen veggies, I bought red, yellow, green, and orange peppers, and some onions, and sauteed them with the chicken, and used that as the veggie filler. YUM! I also used the salsa like they mentioned, and also the sour cream. You get 2 fajitas per serving, and they really fill you up!! This is a definate FAVORITE!

Portobello Mushroom and Almond Pesto Lasagna

4 servings
Prep time 30 mins
Bake time 45 mins

3/4 cup EVOO
5 large portobello mushroom caps, thinly slicked salt and pepper
2 -14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes with Italian herbs
3 cups (about 10 oz) sliced almonds, toasted
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, chopped
grated peel and juice of 1 lemon
6 no boil lasagna sheets
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat the over to 350. In a large skillet, heat 1/4 cup olive oil over high heat. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the tomatoes to the skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, and cook until softened, 6 to 7 minutes.

2. Using a food processor, process the toasted almonds, parmesan, garlic, lemon peel, lemon juice and remaining 1/2 cup olive oil into a coarse paste. Transfer the pest to a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.

3. In an 8-inch square baking dish, spread half the tomatoes across the bottom. Place 2 lasagna sheets on top. Spread a third of the pesto over the sheets; sprinkle with half the mozzarella and then half the mushrooms.
Add another layer of lasagna sheets, pesto, mozzarella and mushrooms. Top with another layer of lasagna sheets, spread with the remaining pesto and then the remaining tomatoes. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 minutes more. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Modifications made:
Substituted basil pesto in a jar for the almond pesto. Substituted a small container of cottage cheese (fat free) with 1 egg and parsley for part of the mozzarella cheese. Add a very small amount of browned lean beef to the tomato mixture to add meat but not take away from the mushrooms.

This is very good. Especially if you need a protein snack in the afternoons.

Black Bean Dip

2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4c - 1/2c chopped red onions (I used 2 teas. of dried onions)
1/2 teas. minced garlic
1 (4 oz) can chopped black olives
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1/2 teas. cumin
1/4 teas. cayenne pepper
Marinate the above ingredients overnight in the refrigerator.

To Serve: Spread on a platter or shallow dish. Sprinkle with Feta Cheese, Chopped Tomatoes and Chopped Cilantro.

Serve with corn chips or baked chips or baked tortillas


Enjoy! Need to let the marinate set for a little before serving. Taste better if it is around room temperature.
