I got this off Dottie's Weight Loss site, but I quartered the recipe to make with a single size can of salmon.
Salmon Patties (makes about 3-4 patties)
1 170g can salmon drained (the smaller size)
pinch onion powder (can use real onion but I don't like the crunch)
1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 tablespoon lemon juice
dash dried dill
1/2 tablespoon parsley flakes
Spray a frying pan with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray and cook mixture like a pancake until each side is golden brown.
I had these with ketchup and veggies on the side.... pretty good lunch!
AWESOME side dish, a MUST try. All CORE ingredients, count 0 points unless you have more than a serving.
2 large potatoes peeled and shredded
2 medium zucchini shredded
4 scallions sliced
1/8 t ground black pepper
1/4 t tarragon
2T corn meal
put potatoes/zucchini in a bowl salted, let stand for 30 minutes. Squeeze and drain out all water. Fry in olive oil, brown (I cooked mine covered for 12 minutes, flipping). Makes 8 pancakes, you can have 2 for a serving. Now, I sliced mine thin rather than shredding and made them hashbrown-like. AWESOME flavor, even hubby liked!
Here are a few recipes I pulled from the lo-carb cookbook I published that were slightly altered for CORE.

4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 t. nutmeg
4 T. FF Parmesan cheese.

BROCCOLI CRUNCH SALAD

Mix together broccoli, bacon and cheese. Mix together mayonnaise, vinegar and sweetener. Toss together vegetables and dressing. Chill.
BAKED CHEESE ZUCCHINI
2 thinly sliced medium zucchini
1 T. prepared mustard
1/8 t. ground white pepper
1/8 t. ground nutmeg
1 thinly sliced green onion
1/2 c. grated FF cheese
Place zucchini in a colander or on towels to drain off the moisture. Combine the remaining ingredients. Add to the zucchini and mix well. Pour into a lightly oiled 2-quart casserole. Bake 350° for 40 to 45 minutes.
4 cups shredded, drained zucchini
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1 crushed garlic clove
1/2 c. FF Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. FF shredded cheddar cheese
Mix all ingredients except cheese. Place into a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over the top. Bake at 375° about 20 minutes. Serves 4. 4.5 gm carbs/serving
ASPARAGUS AU GRATIN
5 T. olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 lbs. asparagus
1/2 c. FF grated Parmesan cheese
Pour oil into an oval gratin or other shallow baking dish and add some salt and pepper. Add asparagus and coat with oil. Bake at 450° until asparagus is tender and beginning to brown at the edges, 12 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and squeeze lemon juice before serving. Serves 8. 5 gm carbs/serving
ITALIAN GREEN BEANS
1 lb. fresh green beans
3 chicken bouillon cubes
3 c. hot water
1/2 c. FF grated Parmesan cheese
Dissolve bouillon in hot water. Pour over beans. Cook until beans are tender. Drain and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and freshly ground pepper before serving.
1 teaspoon vegetable stock granules or 1 teaspoon crumbled vegetable bouillon cube ( I would opt for fresh broth, but hey, I'm that way )
1 1/2 cups couscous
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 cup finely sliced scallions
1-2 tsp olive oil
1. In a small saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups water and vegetable stock granules. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat, and stir to dissolve granules. Add couscous, cover, and set aside until water is absorbed, about 10 minutes.
2. Fluff couscous with a fork. Mix in parsley and scallions and add oil, working it through with a fork to mix well. Season with salt to taste, and serve.
Put 1 cup of lentils (red or orange) into 6 cups of bouillon and add some spices. I like 1 t of cumin and cardomon and 2 t of tumeric. Add 6 minced cloves of garlic and simmer for 45 to 1 hour. You want a thick glop sort of thing.
Then put on rice, couscous, quinoa, what have you and add a bit of chutney.
I cut some chopped up kale in just before it was done and it was great. You will be FULL. This is enough for two.
Made this the other day. It was really good. I ate it over greens one day, in a tortilla the next. (used 2 pts for the tortilla). I got it from Barbo's site.

Mix together and chill. I ate it wrapped in large lettuce leaves. Mmm. It made at least 2 servings if you're really hungry, 3 if not.
Blanch a few cups of brocolli (dont forget to peel the stems and slice them too)
Put 2 t olive oil in a frying pan and add a couple of cloves of garlic and just a touch of those tiny hot peppers (JUST A TOUCH)
Fry up nicely.

At the last minute throw in a bit (say quarter cup) of ff cottage cheese. Toss it around and serve it on ww pasta.
