1 1/2 pounds cod fillets
2 small onions, sliced
1 large apple, cored and coarsely chopped
1-2 T curry powder
1 T peanut oil
1/2 cup low fat coconut milk (NOT sweetened- the Thai style)

mandarin oranges

Heat oil in a large frying pan, and add onions. Sprinkle curry powder over onions and fry a bit to release curry flavors. Add apple, and celery, then add cod fillets, moving veggies to cover the fillets. Pour coconut milk over the cod and veggies, and turn heat to simmer. Cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until cod is done and flakes easily. Serve on brown rice, if desired, or in a bowl. Put any or all of the toppings in seperate serving dishes, and allow people to garnish the curry as they want. Serves 4.

NOTE: You could substitute chicken for the fish if you like.

Default 70% Chocolate Truffles

3 Lindt 70% chocolate bars
4 T. unsalted butter
1 cup whipping cream
2 T of rum or other liqueur
cocoa, unsweetned coconut, or ground nuts

Heat cream in microwave until steaming. Put chocolate and butter in food processor and turn on. Add hot cream, process until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Put in a container and refrigerate for several hours. Taking about a teaspoon full of the chocolate mixture, roll into a ball and roll in unsweetened coconut, ground nuts or cocoa. Keep refrigerated. You can also dip them in melted 70% chocolate, but you have to temper the chocolate, which is a pain, so I figure why bother?

Default Hungarian Goulash

1 1/2 pounds lean beef stew, or round steak cut into 1 inch cubes
2 large onions, peeled and sliced
1 small can tomato paste
8 oz. sour cream (can use light, or fat free if desired)

Brown beef and onions in non stick pan, or frying pan with a little oil. Add tomato paste, and about 1-2 teaspoons of paprika. Add a little water, but only enough to keep mixture from sticking. Stir well, and cover and simmer 30 to 45 minutes, or until beef is tender. Add a little bit of water, and stir occasionally while simmering. You can spinkle more paprika in if desired. Once beef is tender, stir in sour cream, and serve immediately over rice, or pasta.

Serves 4

Here is the recipe for those cheese straws. They are really good and if you want a crunchy snack, it is great (sort of like cheese nips).

Sally's Cheese Straws

1 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour **substitute WW flour**
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
Shred cheese in a food processor; cover and let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Process cheese, flour, and remaining ingredients in food processor about 30 seconds or until mixture forms a ball. Use a cookie press fitted with a star-shaped disc to shape mixture into straws, following manufacturer's instructions. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 8 dozen.

My friend did not use the cookie press. She rolled them out on a cutting board. Make them the size of a piece of spaghetti (very small) as they get bigger and if too big, won't get crunchy.

Default Chinese Steamed Buns

4 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I use Wheat Montana, white which is very light)
4 T vital wheat gluten
2 cups warm water
1/4 cup agave
1 T yeast

Mix ingredients, and knead well. There is NO oil, or salt in this recipe. Put in a greased bowl, cover and let rise until double.

Meanwhile, prepare filling:

3/4 pound ground beef or chicken, or pork
6 shitake mushrooms, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1 T Kikkoman soy sauce
1 T agave

Brown meat in a frying pan with mushrooms, onions, soy sauce and agave. Traditionally, you would add a teaspoon of cornstarch to 2 T cold water, and thicken the mixture with it. I omitted this, and it was ok. Set aside to cool.

When dough is doubled, divide into 32 equal pieces. ( I cut it in half, then in half, then in half, etc.) Flatten a piece of dough in your hand. Place a spoonful of the filling on the dough, and bring the ends up and seal and bring together. The finished bun should look kind of like an upside down balloon, with the top like the opening of a balloon. Place on a small square of waxed paper, and set aside. Continue to form the buns. When completed, steam the buns over hot water, without crowding them in the steamer, for 10 minutes. Serve hot with soy sauce with a bit of ginger and finely chopped green onion mixed in to dip in. To steam, I use my electric steamer. A steamer basket works well too. Just leave space between them, as they expand while cooking. These can also be filled with sweetened red bean paste, but I don't have a SB recipe for that right now!

Default Mock Mashed Potatoes

Mock Mashed Potatoes
2 10oz pkgs frozen cauliflower (or fresh 3/4 head)
1 tsp chicken boullion granules
1/4 tsp white pepper
1 tsp minced onion flakes (optional)
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp heavy cream

Preheat oven to 375°F. Cook cauliflower in microwave or on stovetop until it is VERY done - fall-apart fork tender. Drain well and mix cauliflower with all other ingredients except cream in food processor or with a powerful mixer (hand or stand). Mixing with mixer will give "lumpier" results than a food processor, but some people feel the lumps make it seem even more like mashed potatoes. Add cream slowly and mix again. (You must be careful adding liquid. If you add too much, you are in for trouble. Your dish may take a tiny bit more or less than the called for amount of cream.)

Spray an ovenproof dish with cooking spray and put mixture in. Add pats of extra butter or margarine on top if you like an extra buttery potato, and a bit of paprika sprinkled on top adds nice color as well. Bake 15 - 20 minutes until hot.

For those of you who think they would not like this dish because they are not fans of cauliflower, I implore you to try it - you'll be hard pressed to tell it from mashed potatoes - it does not taste like cauliflower at this point. Really.

Makes 4-6 Servings. 5-7 carbs per serving.

ALTERNATE VARIATIONS: Instead of using cauliflower, you can also use Turnips! For this method, peel and dice turnips to very small squares and boil till extremely tender (just short of mush!). Use the method above, or skip the oven step if you prefer since they hold their shape better than cauliflower. They have a very potato taste also - you would not guess these started their lives as turnips! For a REALLY rich Mock Mashed Potato, add 2 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese (softened) before adding to the mixer/food processor. Adjust carbs accordingly. Turnips have slightly LESS carbs than cauliflower (and more fiber) so there's no worry of over-carbing.
