Anyone can post. Just thought it would be nice to have some fat free, low cal, low sugar, low sodium with minimal ingredients or any other recipe that anyone would like to add. If possible try and add servings and calories, etc...and a name for your recipe.(ie, Echiladas a la poof :D )
Be nice to go to in case we have no idea what to cook someday.

Those sound great! :D
Copied from an old post:
Oh I did want to add that my spanish rice is also healthy for me plus it taste great! The only thing I hate is it takes like 50 minutes to an hour to cook!
When I used to do it with white rice it was alot simpler.
1 pound of wheat rice
2 8oz cans of tomato sauce
2 8 oz cans of water
1 bell pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic chopped (I have now heard it is best to consume garlic raw within an hour of chopping so you may want to put it on after you are done eating)
1 tbs of extra virgin olive oil
I coat the pan with the oil. I add the rice and bell pepper and onion and garlic, add the tomato sauce, put water in the cans, pour into the mixture. Stir it all together, add any other spices or a little salt if you wish. Put it on medium heat and voila! You have spanish rice in about 50 minutes. Now you do need to keep an eye on it and after 20 if there is hardly any fluid in it and still hard you may need to add 1-2 more cans of water. Especially with wheat you may need to add alot more so just keep checking it. But once it is done it tastes just as good as white!

Okay everyone the verdict is in!!! Yes I actually tried this the other day! Oh my Lord!!!! This bread is awesome!!!!!!! Joey was floored, so was I. This exceeded our expectations and none of us could stop eating it! There are 7 of us and we went thru two loaves and one piece out of the third one!!! Joey said he wants to call it, "Sarah's Sweet Angel Bread".
hahahaha I am so stuffed right now!!!!!!!!! I had 3 regular bread pans and used one round cake pan. I am going to be using this as my main recipe! It was so soft and tender and a little sweet but not sickly so. Oh my!!!! I am usually a huge sucker for store brown and serve rolls and these were even tastier IMO. I can happily say goodbye to white bread forever now! :)
The all wheat did just fine, I did not use any white flour, just King Arthurs 100% wheat, can't wait til I can grind my own!I used the molasses too, and I used real butter(as usual), and greased the pan in real butter too. I did melt some butter and brush it on the top before baking the way some people recommended. I even took a few pics. I know, I am a dork. Lighting is bad and he didn't use the flash but oh well. This is the one that was in the cake pan![/color]
