Ketchup Recipe

6 oz tomato paste
1/2 c water
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
5 tsp Splenda
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp garlic powder

Mix all ingredients in saucepan, simmer over low heat until well blended. Keep in refrigerator in airtight container


FYI: this is for 25 servings of 1 TBSP

There is 1.7g of carbs per serving which come from the tomato paste - which the only ingredient is tomatoes which is an allowable occasional vegetable...so just use in moderation!

Default Chili-Rubbed Tilapia with Asparagus and Lemon

Ingredients
  • 2 pound(s) asparagus, tough ends trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt, divided
  • 1 pound(s) tilapia, Pacific sole or other firm white fish fillets
  • 2 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
Directions

Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Put asparagus in a steamer basket, place in the pan, cover and steam until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a large plate, spreading out to cool.

Combine chili powder, garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt on a plate. Dredge fillets in the spice mixture to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook until just opaque in the center, gently turning halfway, 5 to 7 minutes total. Divide among 4 plates. Immediately add lemon juice, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and asparagus to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until the asparagus is coated and heated through, about 2 minutes. Serve the asparagus with the fish.

ZUCCINI "PASTA"


2 pounds zucchini (or a combination of yellow and green zucchini)

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

3/4 cup fresh tomato sauce (optional)



1. Using a vegetable peeler, cut the zucchini into lengthwise ribbons. Peel off several from one side, then turn the zucchini and peel off more. Continue to turn and peel away ribbons until you get to the seeds at the core of the zucchini. Discard the core. You can also do this on a mandolin, adjusted to a very thin slice.

2. Cook the zucchini strips in two batches. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When it is hot, add the zucchini ribbons and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Cook, tossing and stirring the zucchini, for two to three minutes, until softened and beginning to turn translucent. Adjust salt and add freshly ground pepper to taste, and transfer to a serving dish. Repeat with the remaining olive oil and zucchini. Serve, topping with tomato sauce and freshly grated Parmesan if desired.

Yield: Serves four

Advance preparation: This dish is best served right away. But you can enjoy leftovers, which I like to eat cold, doused with lemon juice and a drop of olive oil.
Be careful not to overcook them. They fall apart otherwise.
