Shrimp and Potato Puffs with Lemon Ginger Dipping Sauce

OOOOOOOOoooooo so delicious!!
these reheat perfectly in the microwave for 30-45 seconds
and make a perfect packable lunch!
GREAT for entertaining...like the Super Bowl! Parties, Gatherings!!




IDEAL PROTEIN CALCULATIONS:
Counts as
1 unrestricted packet, 2 cups vegetables, 1 egg, 2 ounces daily protein


WHAT YOU NEED:



1 Packet Ideal Protein Potato Puree
1 Large Egg (lightly beaten)
2 ounces Shrimp
2 Cups Grated Raw Cauliflower
1 TBSP Dried Onion
1 TBSP Chives
1 TBSP Ginger in the Tube (or fresh ginger)
1 TBSP Pimentos
3-4 fresh Basil Leaves, thinly chopped
Hot Sauce to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste
Zest of 1 Lemon


With a hand grater, I grated 2 cups cauliflower into a DRY pan to saute until lightly browned.
I added the dried onion and lemon zest as it was cooking.
This only takes a few minutes. Just stir it around to brown.










Add the cooked cauliflower to a large bowl

add the shrimp to the hot pan to heat...
i used pre-cooked frozen shrimp that i just thawed slightly under
cold running water, diced and heated in the pan. then i gave it a few pulses in the magic bullet to mince the shrimp









add the rest of the ingredients.






MIX gently but well, and roll into 12 small balls
almost the size of a golf ball, but just under.
Place on non stick parchment paper or silpat
i place my silpat on top of a cooling rack
so that heat can easily get under the bottom
this helps make them crispy on the bottom






BAKE 425 for 15-17 Minutes until lightly browned



While they are baking....make the dipping sauce
Dollop of Homemade or Walden Farms Mayo
2 tsp Ginger from the tube
Juice from the Lemon to make a thin dressing dipping sauce


GARNISH with Lemon Zest!
I paired mine with 1 cup lettuce greens
also drizzled with the dipping sauce






WANNA BITE??

Default Baked Caramel Chayote "Apples" Soooo GOOD!

O.M.GEE!!! These are so delicious and tastes so much like real apples!!

Baked Caramel Chayote Apples



so i saw someone (frawniemae) post about chayote apples...
and i immediately started looking for some sort of recipe online!
i found a few fried apple recipes...so decided to modify for IP



CHAYOTE



PEEK-A-BOO!
(couldn't resist drawing a face!)

here is what i used!



3 chayote (lovely little green gems!)
zest AND juice of 1 lemon
4 packets stevia sweetener (but you could use your sweetener of choice)
1 tsp apple pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp torani sugar free brown sugar cinnamon syrup
2 tbsp torani sugar free salted caramel syrup



from all that i read online, the chayote will release a foamy sticky
substance when peeled...so i wore some disposable gloves to peel
and i used a regular vegetable peeler.



these were very easy to peel.
after i peeled them i rinsed them under water and dried them off



then i cut them in half, and removed the center "seed" pit with a spoon





then i sliced them like apple slices



after i sliced them, since you can eat them raw, i decided to be brave and taste one!!
they are very good raw!
they have a faint taste of a cross between a pear and a cucumber!
crisp and crunchy! refreshing!
but since i am on a quest for "apples" i sliced them all
and stopped eating them!



three chayote peeled and sliced yielded 4 cups!
(perfect!!!......two 2 cup servings)



i placed a plate over top the measuring cup
and microwaved for 5 minutes
do NOT add water or anything....they will steam on their own
and release some juices





in the meantime....zest and juice 1 lemon



now, add the lemon zest, the lemon juice and the spices and the
sugar free syrups and give a gentle stir to evenly coat



put back into the microwave for 3-5 minutes more
or until the tenderness you choose
i did 3 mins and they still had a slight "crunch" to them
and that is how i liked them so i did not cook anymore

i read that cooking them too long, changed the texture to become
more liked cooked squash, so i left a little "apple" crispness to them.



this is how they came out!!

the smell is divine!!
like an apple pie baking in the oven!





WANNABiTE?

Default Chayote Cinnamon Apple Turnover


Chayote Cinnamon "Apple" Turnover



What I used



the proti diet pizza dough only....no sauce, added into a bowl
i added 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 packets stevia sweetener




I diced up 1/4 cup my previously "baked chayote apples"



i added 2 tbsp water to the pizza dough and stirred until it came together in a ball, then rolled it with my hand to form a better ball



then i rolled it out between parchment paper





i added my chopped chayote into the center and folded the sides together



i crimped the edges with my fingers, you could also use a fork



i brushed the top with some egg white



then sprinkled it with cinnamon and stevia



then i found the perfect dish!!! my new little "love me" oval plate!!
after all we need to spoil ourselves once in awhile!




i baked this delicious treat at 375 for 18 minutes!
or watch until slightly golden brown




YUMMY!
