Default Leek-a-Mole & Roasted Red Pepper Bread Sticks

Sweet Coconut Leek-a-Mole
&
Roasted Red Pepper Bread Sticks



so i am not a huge fan of asparagus...which most "mockamole" recipes use....so i decided to get creative...and made this delicious creamy version!!

Sweet Coconut & Leek-A-Mole!!




I sauteed 1 large leek, 4 green onions, 1/2 cup green cabbage and a few mini red bell peppers...all diced....until tender.



then i added 2 tbsp torani sugar free coconut syrup!!!!
I LOVE COCONUT!!!


then i added just a wee bit of lime juice!!!!!

next, puree it all in the magic bullet, or blender...adding water to make desired consistency.




see...nice & thick & CREAMY!!!
COCONUT LEEK-A-MOLE DELICIOUSNESS!!!



so...an update on the flatbread recipe...i made
ROASTED RED PEPPER FOCACCIA!!!




1 IP Potato Puree Packet
1 Egg
1/4 Cup Roasted Red Pepper liquid from jarred peppers
1 Large piece of Roasted Red Pepper Diced
1 tsp dried minced onions
1 tsp rosemary
2 tsp Garlic Paste from the tube


bake 350, 20 mins, remove from pan and cut into sticks and bake 10-15 mins more until crispy crunchy!!!!













i baked mine on the drying rack right on the oven rack...so they got toasty on both sides!!!




nice and toasty and crunchy!!
YUM!!!!!


SUPER NICE FLAVOR!!!!




WANNABiTE???????

golden goddess soup....can be anything you like really...




basically, use lighter colored veggies...
like
summer squash
onions (i prefer vidalia onions...but green are on protocol)
yellow or red tomato
radish
red and orange bell peppers
white or orange colored cauliflower

simmer in water or chicken stock then puree in blender

you can add more tomatoes, and some basil for tomato bisque!
you can add orange spice!!
today i had this!!




sometimes i put to on a plate to cool faster!!
because i use a magic bullet and can't add while blending
like a regular blender with a hole in the top
to let out the steam!




i took my basic golden goddess soup, added some ginger paste from the tube and some orange peel zest and 4 drops of liquid stevia...
OH MY WORD....THIS IS HEAVEN IN A BOWL!!!

i love this soup base!! you can just go in so many different directions!

sweet, savory, spicy...like my spicy taco soup!!!

ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rainbow: those garlic breadsticks are SO.GOOD. I had them twice today.
I need to experiment with egg whites instead of whole egg
I got extra exercise today (PT appt and a walk) so I'm not worried but in the long run...

I had everything at the house except whole eggs. Let me know how you do with the egg whites. I would prefer to use those as well.

Default Tried the Cauli-Tots.

Rainbow,
I tried your cauli-tots the other night and boy what flavor; however I could not get the suckers to crips up on the outside at all. They were so wet and mushy. Any tips on how to crisp them up? Thank you. I love all your recipes.

if they did not crisp up, you probably had too much liquid in the cauliflower. try squeezing out the excess liquid before you puree the cauliflower. or when you chill, and this also helps....drain overnight in cheesecloth or a sieve over a bowl so excess liquid can come out.

hope that helps

mine are not as crunchy as regular potato tator-tots but they did get a little crispy on the edges

Thanks rainbow! I will try that next time. You are such an inspiration to me. I do not know how many people I have told about this wonderful lady who makes these incredible recipes to save us all from diet boredom or cheating. Wishing you a great day.

Default ALTERNATIVE RECIPE: Using Proti Diet Chocolate Cake



this is what i used....
i am not sure if the ip chocolate crepe will work our not, but it might.

both of these rate high on my list!!
moist but not rubbery....delicious cake like whoopie pies!!


slighty crunchy biscotti!!
not as hard ar original biscotti, but really delicious!

whoopie pies for lunch....
and biscotti with my coffee at breakfast...
now thats a good diet day!!


this is a restricted item

Chocolate Whoopie Pies!!




Chocolate Biscotti!!







This makes a good sheet cake for your birthday!!!



but for today i am trying biscotti's!! and whoopie pies
!!

1 packet Proti Diet Chocolate Cake Mix
1 Egg
1 tsp Olive Oil
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp instant coffee (optional)
1/4 cup water
mix all and bake 350 for 15 mins.
cool slightly and for biscotti's, cut into sticks and continue to bake until
desired crispness...i did mine for 5 more mins.







for whoopie pies, just slice open and add walden farms marshmallow fluff
i mixed my marshmallow fluff with 1 tbsp milk to make it less globby...is that a word???





this recipe makes 1 restricted serving:
you can make 4 whoopie pies, 10 biscotti, or do half like i did....
