Valjean -

I searched S.O.A.R. and found several recipes for Moo Goo Gai Pan. I picked one and modified the ingredients insignificantly so that I could use MasterCook's nutritional info to compute the points (eg fresh pea pods became pea pods). This one sounds like it might be a keeper:

Hello everyone. I want to share this great menu with you - my boyfriend made it last week for my Mum for (British) Mother's Day and it is so delicious and so low in points! I haven't put the points values because I think you work them out differently in the States from how we do here, but it's really easy to work them out. Here goes:

1. Sesame prawn toasties (from the Millennium cookbook if anyone has that...)

4 medium slices bread.
100g (3.5oz) peeled, ready-to-eat prawns.
1 tsp sherry
1 tsp oyster sauce (optional)
150g (5.5oz) cottage cheese
pinch of salt
1 tsp sesame seeds
1. toast bread on 1 side
2. combine prawns (chop them if you like), sherry, oyster sauce, cottage cheese and salt.
3. spread mixture on untoasted side of bread.
4. sprinkle with sesame seeds.
5. grill toasties.
6. cut each slice into 4 triangles and serve!
2. Barbecue chicken wings.

As many chicken wings as you like, skinless. Remove the little fatty part so you have the meat part.

For the marinade: equal parts of tomato ketchup, clear honey, soy sauce. Mix them all together.

Put the whole lot in a big bowl, make sure the wings are covered in marinade, cover, and put in refrigerator for at least an hour.

Take them out of the fridge, give them a stir, put them in a roasting dish and cook them in the middle of a medium oven until they're done. Yum!
3. Chilli chicken skewers (more Thai than Chinese, but still...)

(makes 8 skewers)

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 each yellow and orange pepper, deseeded
1 medium red onion
16 button mushrooms
16 cherry tomatoes

(For the marinade)
2 red chillies, finely chopped.
2 tbsp lemon grass, finely sliced.
2 tbsp mint leaves, roughly chopped.
1 garlic clove.
6oz olive oil.
4 tbsp fresh lemon juice.

1. soak 8 wooden skewers in cold water for at least an hour. Cut each chicken breast into 6 chunks. Cut each pepper into 12 pieces and the onion into 8 wedges. Mix marinade ingredientes and add chicken, prepared vegetables, button mushrooms. Marinate for 1 hour at room temperature.

2. Preheat the grill to high. Meanwhile, skewer chicken and vegetables, starting and finishing with a mushroom. Each skewer will have 3 chunks of chicken, 3 pieces of pepper, 2 wedges of onion, 2 tomatoes and 2 mushrooms. Grill for 20 mins, basting with the marinade and turning every 5 mnutes.

4. Dessert! Lime bananas...

This is soooooo easy - take 1 banana per person and slice lengthways and crosswise to make 4 slices. Squeeze fresh lime juice all over it. Grill for 5-10 minutes, or until cooked through. Serve with something yummy - I like low-point toffee ice cream or yoghurt, but whatever rings your bell will do!

lots of love,

255 - 251 - 231

On a week-night, I'd use 4 tsp of that garlic/ginger blend that comes in a jar (near the jars of chopped garlic) instead of dealing with fresh.

In another bowl, combine flour with Cornflakes crumbs, salt and pepper. Cut chicken breast into 4 to 5 long stripes. Dip each strip of chicken into egg mixture and then into flour/Cornflakes mixture, coating each piece completely. Fry each chicken finger for 5 minutes, or until coating has turned brown.

Toss chopped romaine lettuce with chopped red cabbage, Napa cabbage, and carrots. Pile on dinner plate. Sprinkle with sliced green onion. Sprinkle with almonds. Sprinkle with chow mein noodles
Cut chicken into bite-sized chunks. Pile chicken in the middle of salad. Serve with salad dressing on the side.

Cabbage Wrapped Shrimp with Wasabi Cream

¼ cup ff sour cream
2 T ff Mayonnaise
1 teasp. Wasabi paste
1/8 + ¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups water
2/3 cup rice
8 ounces cooked shrimp chopped
1 medium seedless cucumber (peeled and diced)
1/2 ripe avocado peeled, pitted, & diced
¼ cup cilantro
1 T fresh lime juice
8 large leave savoy cabbage, Swiss Chard, or Chinese Cabbage, tough ribs removed
6 T reduced sodium soy sauce

To make the wasabi cream, combine the sour cream, mayo, wasabi paste, and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve, up to 2 days.

Meanwhile, bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add the rice and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork then transfer to a large bowl to cool. Stir in shrimp, cucumber, avocado, cilantro, scallions, and lime juice; set aside.

Cook the cabbage leaves in boiling water until wilted, about 2 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool. Cut each cabbage leaf lengthwise in half. Working 1 leaf half at a time, place a scant ¼ cup rice mixture in the center of the bottom third of the leaf half. Fold over the sides then roll up from the bottom of the leaf to form a package. Repeat with remaining leaves and rice mixture to make a total of 16 rolls. Serve with wasabi cream and soy sauce.

Per serving (2 rolls with 1 teaspoon wasabi cream and scant tablespoon soy sauce): 138 Cal, 3 grams fat, 2 grams fiber
