Default Thanksgiving Low-Carb Stuffing

This is NOT IP compliant, but it is lower in carbs/sugars/fat than standard stuffings.

Ingredients:
• 1 loaf low carb bread, crumbled or cut into cubes
• 1 large onion, chopped
• 6-7 cups chopped celery - about 2 small bunches
• 1 green Bell pepper, chopped
• 1 zucchini, chopped
• 1 bunch parsley, chopped (about 2 cups)
• 4 teaspoons poultry seasoning, such as Bells
• 1/2 teaspoon pepper
• Salt - start with 1/2 teaspoon, or 1 T chicken or turkey soup base (see below)
• 1 cup water or broth, plus more according to moisture needed
• 1 egg
• 1 T cooking oil
Preparation:
1) 1 - 1½ lb loaf of low-carb bread if you have access to it. Different types of bread will bring different results, so you may have to adjust the amount of liquid, seasonings, etc.
2) Sauté' onion, celery, zucchini and pepper until soft. Add parsley and cook for a minute or so, until wilted. Add seasonings.
3) Mix together the vegetables and the bread. Add a cup of broth or water, egg, stir, and taste. Adjust seasoning and moisture. If you're going to stuff poultry with it, leave it on the dry side because it will absorb a lot of juices during cooking. Mix well and bake at 350 F. for about half an hour, or until browned on top.

Default Thanksgiving Wild Mushroom Gravy

This is and Atkins diet recipe, not IP compliant...but still is lower in carbs/sugars/fat than normal gravy.

Wild Mushroom Gravy
Ingredients
• 2 cups defatted turkey juices from turkey roasting pan or homemade turkey or chicken stock
• 1/2 cup heavy cream
• 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
• 10 ounces shiitake mushrooms, rinsed, stemmed and sliced
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 1/4 cup dry sherry
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
Directions
Bring the juice to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and reduce by half. Add the cream and cook until reduced enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 8 minutes.
Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, thyme, garlic, and sherry and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and almost dry, about 6 minutes
Combine the mushrooms with reduced gravy and season with salt and pepper. Reheat, if necessary, and stir in the vinegar. Transfer to a gravy boat and keep warm until serving.

Default Thanksgiving Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

This is a modified version of Emeril's bourbon sweet potatoes, modified to be lower in carbs, lower in sugar, higher in fiber.

Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients
• 1 3/4 to 2 pounds sweet potatoes
• ½ can Pumpkin pie filling
• 1 teaspoon olive oil
• 1/2 cup heavy cream
• 1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
• 3 tablespoons packed Splenda brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons molasses
• 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Place the potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Bake until tender and starting to ooze sugary syrup, about 1 hour and 15 minutes, depending upon their size. Remove from the oven and let sit until cool enough to handle.

Cut a slit down each potato and scoop the flesh into a large bowl. Discard the skins. Add the cream, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, and salt and beat on high speed with an electric mixer until smooth.

Cover to keep warm, or gently reheat before serving.

Cool Thanksgiving Stuffing Idea

Stuffing is going to be my enemy....so if I have an alternative....

Low Carb Stuffing

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350.

1 head cauliflower
6 links of frozen sausage
One can of mushrooms (small)
Chopped onion
Chopped celery
1 tablespoon (or more) garlic (I use the jarred kind)
Fresh cilantro if you have it (I actually buy this frozen in a bottle and use that)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Take one head of cauliflower and chop it up pretty fine (I actually used the high slicing blade in the Cusinart -- there were a few larger slices, but it worked fine. Of course, you can use a knife. My husband tells me my chopping skills are nonexistant so I rely on the machine. Oh well, I can type.) Steam it for 5 minutes or so to get it a little soft. (I used a double boiler.) You will cook it some more later.

Nuke about six links of sausage so they are unfrozen.

Meanwhile, in the Cusinart, chop up one small onion using the lower blade. (Leave the onion and other ingredients that you add in the Cuisinart. This makes it easier.)
Add two long stalks of celery
Add one can of mushrooms
Add one small carrot (for color -- unless your kids hate carrots, then omit)
Add the garlic)
Add the cilantro
Add the defrosted sausage

Saute the Cusinart mixture for 5 minutes in 2 tablespoons butter in a large pan, and then add the cauliflower.

Next mix:

2 Eggs that have been mixed with a fork
8 oz. cheese in a small bowl

Pour the egg and cheese mixture into the large saute pan, stir, and then take the whole mixture and put it into a large casserole dish. Cook it for 15 minutes at 350 or until it is bubbling.

Eat!

WF stands for Walden Farms. Most of their products are sugar free & carb -free, or at least very low carbs

Default Bok Choy With Broccoli

  • 1 pound bok choy, about 1 medium bunch
  • 1 pound broccoli, about 1 large bunch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Cut the stalks off the bok choy and cut into 1-inch pieces. Coarsely chop the leaves. Peel the broccoli stalks and cut into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut the broccoli florets into bite-size pieces.

In a large skillet or wok, bring 1/2 cup water to a boil. Add the bok choy stalks and the broccoli stalks and florets. Cover and simmer on medium-low heat until the broccoli is bright green, 5 minutes. Uncover; cook on high heat until the water evaporates, 2-4 minutes. Take the wok off the heat and add the bok choy leaves, oil and garlic. Put the wok back on the heat; cook, stirring often for 2 minutes or until the broccoli is tender-crisp. Add the ginger and soy sauce and toss well.
