Default Cold Weather Foods - Recipe

Here is a wonderful link to Low Carb Cooking - ENJOY

http://homecooking.about.com/gi/dyna...es%2Findex.htm


I love saucy foods, soups and stews.... soooo I searched the web for a few recipes. I would figure out the carbs myself as I make it but the basic idea is there

Here's one from Atkins site:
Creamy Chicken and Vegetable Stew
A medley of vegetables, tender chicken and a little cream make this savory stew hearty and satisfying

Servings: 6
Prep time: 1 h 15 min
Bake/Cook time: 12 minutes
Carbohydrates: 12.5 grams
Net Carbs: 8.5 grams
Fiber: 4 grams
Protein: 51.5 grams
Fat: 39 grams
Calories: 620

1 whole (4 1/2 lb. to 5 lb.) chicken, quartered
1 can (14.5 ounces each) reduced sodium chicken broth, plus 1 cup water
1 bay leaf
5 tablespoons butter
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
8 ounces white button mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup Atkins bake mix
1 3/4 cups frozen mixed vegetables* (from a 16 ounce bag), thawed
1/3 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper

1.Combine chicken, broth and bay leaf in a large saucepot or Dutch oven. Cover partially and simmer until chicken is just cooked through, 35 minutes. Transfer chicken to a large bowl.

2.Simmer broth 15 minutes over medium-high heat, until reduced to 2 1/2 cups; strain. Remove skin and bones from chicken pieces. Cut meat into bite-size pieces.

3.Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion and thyme. Cook 5 minutes, until onion is tender. Add mushrooms and cook 7 to 8 minutes more. Reduce heat to medium-low. Sprinkle vegetables with bake mix; cook 2 minutes.

Gradually whisk in reduced broth. Add mixed vegetables and simmer, stirring occasionally until broth thickens, 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir chicken and cream into sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2 pkg frozen chopped spinach (thawed, H20 squeezed out)..12g
1 bunch green onions, chopped (about 1 c)..4.8g
1 bunch parsley, chopped (about 2 cups)..3g
2 Tbsp garlic (more is better)..5.6g
1 lemon, juiced..5.2g
1 pint sour cream..30g
1 pint mayo..0g

Best on 2nd day- makes 6 cups (24 servings)
and according to fitday,

SPINACH DIP #2

10 oz frozen spinach
8oz pkg philadelphia cream cheese
1/2 c real mayo
1/2 c parmesan cheese
1 tsp parsley
dash pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

bring spinach to a boil in about 1 c water until tender and drain (press out excess water).. soften cream cheese in microwave.. mix parmesan and spices into softened cream cheese.. mix in spinach and 1/2 c mayo (next time i will use a bit less.. i added mayo because i could eat cream cheese by the spoonful and the mayo adds 2 extra servings!)

this makes about 6 servings (1/4 c each) ~ 2.83 carbs (1.16 of which is fiber) serve warm with your fave LC chips..

Hey Kim,

I'm trying to search the web looking for the lowest in carbs soup, its pretty hard to find them b/c most soups have veggies which bring the count up.

If you all can find them, please post it.

Thanks !!
