Thanks for asking about the Thanksgiving recipes, bc I'm starting to freak out about Thanksgiving. I'm hostessing it this year and don't want to blow everything!

Directions:
1. In a blender, add water, butterscotch pudding, spices and sweetener.

CREAMY GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE: My mom used to make a delicious green bean casserole at the holidays. This is my Ideal Protein version.

1. Empty 1 to 2 cups of canned green beans (with water) into a stovetop pan and heat .

You can also add 1 can of sliced mushrooms to cook along with the beans.

Drain the liquid and set aside. (You can also boil fresh green beans which will be more crunchy. I personally like the beans a little softer as they are from a can)

2. Make the Ideal Protein Mushroom Soup with a little less water than in the instructions to make a very thick sauce.

3. Add green beans to soup/sauce. Add spices to taste (for example, black pepper, sea salt, chili powder, lemon). Add in dried onion flakes if desired and stir.

4. Move to an oven proof pot and bake at 200 C / 400 F. You can add additional onion flakes or sliced mushrooms to top of casserole. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

ROASTED ROSEMARY GARLIC MASHED "POTATOES": Cauliflower makes a surprisingly tasty potato substitue. Roasting instead of boiling, and adding the rosemary, garlic, & horseradish brings this to a whole new level.

This is another recipe which looks like it has a lot of steps and is difficult, but is really as simple as popping the cauliflower in the oven to roast, then dropping it in a food processor to blend. So don't be intimidated and dive right in.

This keeps well and I often make a double batch to eat immediately and to put in a sealed container to microwave at work the next day.

Ingredients:
1 or 2 bags frozen cauliflower (or 1 large head)
1 oz non-fat milk (from your morning coffee allowance)
4-6 tsp olive oil
1-2 tsp or more dry rosemary
Garlic (I grind about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dry garlic, but you can use fresh or garlic powder to your taste)
Sea Salt & Pepper
1-3 tsp horseradish (I use paste from a tube)

Direction:
1. On baking paper on an oven tray, lay out cauliflower. (I use 2 bags of frozen and save 1/2 for another meal.)
2. Spray the cauliflower with Olive Oil (recommended) or "I Can't Believe Its Not Butter" or PAM non-stick cooking spray.
3. Sprinkle on rosemary, salt, pepper and garlic.
4. Roast at 200C until golden (about 15-20 min, but can be less or more depending on your oven)
5. In a blender or food processor, add 4-6 tsp olive oil.
6. If desired, add a little more rosemary and spices to the oil.
7. Add in roasted cauliflower.
8. Add in horseradish
9. Pour milk on top and blend until creamy. (You will most likely need to turn off the blender and stir, then start again to ensure a creamy blend. You can add a little more milk if needed, but dont add too much or the potatoes will become runny which you dont want.)
10. Taste and add sea salt/ pepper if needed. (I use herbamare spicy, white pepper, black pepper, and rose pepper)
11. You can put in a bowl and beat with a hand beater if you want it extra fluffy.
12.Add fresh parsley for garnish

COLE SLAW: Cole slaw is both a great between-meal snack food as well as a perfect complement to your meats. Here is a version that I enjoy often.

Ingredients:
1 oz (30 ml) milk (from your morning tea/ coffee allowance)
1-2 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 packet Truvia or other sweetener
1/2-1 tsp horseradish (I use from a tube, but you can shred your own)
1-2 tsp total of various herbs (I use basil, thyme, oregano, marjorum, and mint)
sea salt & crushed black pepper
1/2 head of red cabbage, shredded (I chop into small pieces)
2 TB Minced raw onion (to taste. I chop 1/2 a red onion)
Other vegetables of your choice if desired (I use 1/2 chopped yellow bell pepper, some radishes, and celery.)

Directions:
1. In a cup, add milk, vinegar, lemon juice and sweetener. Let sit for 5 minutes.
2. Add horseradish, herbs, salt & pepper and stir. Taste. Add additional spices, milk or another sweetener packet if needed, but this balance given should be fine.
3. Mix together cabbage and other vegetables you are using.
4. Add liquid and stir.
5. Tastes best if left a few hours or overnight in the fridge. Can be taken with you to work in a container.

Note: You can also add Walden Farms 0/0/0 Mayonnaise

BANANA "BREAD" (IP Banana Pudding) / LEMON POPPYSEED MUFFINS (IP Lemon Pudding) : Stretch your pudding and create a tasty snack that makes 9 medium or 6 large portions... All for you and all together count as only 1 non-restricted item!

Ingredients:
2 beaten egg whites
1 Package IP Banana Pudding
1 cup or more shredded zucchini
1 tsp baking powder
1 small package Truvia, Splenda or other sweetener (about 1 tsp)
1 tsp or more cinnamon
1/2 tsp or more cardamom
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 - 1 tsp nutmeg
Optional: 1 tsp Rum extract and/or vanilla extract

Directions:
Preheat oven to 180 C (bout 350 F)
1. Grate zucchini (I use 1/2 a large zucchini for about 1-1.5 cups). Use a paper towel to soak up the moisture/water from the zucchini.
2. Dust the shredded zucchini with the various spices (cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, nutmeg) and let sit for about 2 minutes.
3. While waiting, beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until they hold a shape.
4. Add in IP Banana pudding, baking powder, and sweetener. 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 9 med size filling each 1/2 way up. It will also make 6 large if you want.
8. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until top turns dark, but not burned. (Watch carefully).

NOTE: This "bread" will puff up gorgeously when baking, but will often 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.

This recipe will also work with Chocolate & Lemon IP Pudding

HOLIDAY HOT TODDIES
Ingredients:
1 Packet IP Drink or Pudding
Water (up to 2 cups / 5 dl / 16oz to taste)
Optional: 1 packet Truvia, Splenda, or other sugar substitute
Spices as listed

Directions:
1. Mix IP Drink or IP Pudding with up to 2 cups of cold water. Blend until no lumps. (I use a blender)
2. Add in Spices (see below) and mix
3. Pour a portion into a microwave safe mug (3/4 full) and heat.

NOTE! Heating may cause the liquid to overflow, so watch carefully, or use a different larger container to heat the liquid and then pour it into your mug.

With the extra water, this makes 3-4 mugs of delicious hot drinks. Heat one drink and save the rest to re-heat and enjoy over the space of a few hours. Really great to bring to work to microwave to get you through the day. All the below suggestions use up to 2 cups water.

NOTE 1:
You can substitute herbal tea or coffee for the water in any of these. For example, using Peppermint tea and vanilla IP Pudding makes a really subtle Hot Vanilla Candy Cane if you don’t want to add peppermint extract. Adding Bengal Spice Tea or Coffee to the Butter Rum recipe makes it a Caramel Chai/ Caramel Coffee. Use your imagination.

Suggestions:
1. PULLA (Finnish Sweet Buns)
IP Vanilla Pudding
1 tsp or more Cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract OR Vanilla seeds from Pod (I use Vanilla seeds and stir the drink with the pod to infuse with more vanilla flavor)
1/2 - 1 tsp cardamom

2. BUTTER RUM
IP Butterscotch Pudding
1 packet Truvia or other sweetener
1/2-1 tsp Rum extract
Optional: Dash of cinnamon

3. GINGERBREAD
IP Chocolate Drink/ IP Chocolate Pudding/ or IP Vanilla Pudding
1 packet Truvia or other sweetener
1/2 - 1 tsp Gingerbread Spice (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, allspice. Optional: orange peel)

4. PUMPKIN PIE
IP Vanilla Pudding (can also use IP Chocolate Drink/ IP Chocolate Pudding)
1/2 TB or more Da Vinci/ Torani Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie Syrup (The Torani version also has a hint of pumpkin flavor in it which is great)
You can also use Pumpkin Pie spice, but it’s almost identical to Gingerbread spice above.
Optional: 1 packet Truvia or other sweetener (The syrup doesn’t need it. The spice alone does)

5. CANDY CANE
IP Chocolate Drink/ IP Chocolate Pudding / or IP Vanilla Pudding
1/2 - 1 tsp Peppermint extract

6. MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE
IP Chocolate Drink/ IP Chocolate Pudding
1 tsp or more cinnamon
1/4 - 1/2 tsp hot chili (I use Indian chili powder)
Optional: Nutmeg or cardamom
(I don't use sweetener on this to keep the chocolate a bit bitter)

7. NUTELLA
IP Chocolate Drink / IP Chocolate Pudding
1 tsp or more Da Vinci / Torani Sugar-Free Hazelnut Syrup
or
1 tsp Almond or Hazelnut extract

8. BOUNTY (Chocolate Coconut)
IP Chocolate Drink/ IP Chocolate Pudding
1 tsp or more Sugar-Free Coconut Syrup

9. CHRISTMAS ORANGE
IP Chocolate Drink / IP Chocolate Pudding
1 tsp Orange extract (or 1-2 drops Valencia Orange Stevia liquid)

IDEAL PROTEIN STUFFING

Ingredients:
2 cups of your favorite vegetables chopped up in food processor
1 cup of diced mushrooms
3 egg whites
1 tsp Poultry Seasoning
1 tsp Redmond’s Real Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
8 – 16 oz water
1 -2 TBS Braggs
IP packets:
1 – Chicken Soup
1 – Oatmeal
Optional 1 – Sour Cream and Onion Soy Nuts
Optional Seasoning:
Rosemary, Basil, Thyme and/or Garlic
Prepare Oatmeal Biscuits (Page 69 – Volume 2 Ideal Protein Healthy Recipes):
Beat 1 egg white then stir the IP Oatmeal packet until mixed thoroughly. Add 2oz. water until batter is thin and spoon able – but not runny. You may want to add a tsp of poultry seasoning or other seasoning of your choice. Spoon batter onto a non-stick baking sheet and bake at 400 for about 10 min. or until golden brown. Once biscuits are cooled tear up and let dry out an hour or two.
In a mixing bowl put dried oatmeal biscuits, seasonings, chopped veggies, mushrooms and Braggs. (if desired, add your IP soy nuts) Mix and set aside. In your blender bottle or other mixer, mix 8 oz of water with your IP Chicken Soup mix well (more water maybe needed). Add two egg whites to soup mix. Mix well then pour over veggie/biscuit mix stir (should be a moist mixture) and then place in an olive oil sprayed casserole dish. Cook about 20 min at 350.

Has anyone purchased one of the IP recipe books? Just wondering if it's worth it, or if I can do just as well with the recipes on this board.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Thank you thank you so much for this information on DPT!! I was thinking of doing IP but it was way too expensive at the places I knew about. I just made an appointment with them!
