View Full Version : Lo-fat dinner ideas? :)
08-24-2005, 08:11 PM
I want to be able to make some lo-fat dinners for myself that are creative and fun, with different textures than the smoothies and salads I usually eat.
Ok. Here's what I have; a good food processor, an Osterizer blender, an ok juicer. I have an old, round dehydrator that I haven't used in years 'cause it's loud, so dehydrating things is out at this point.
I dont have any fancy gogi berries, cocoa nibs, whatever...but really desperate to through in some new things!

When you say low-fat, do you mean NO nuts, seeds, avocado at all or some but just not a whole lot?

Hey! thanks for the reply. I usually eat about an ounce of nuts s=during the day anyway, and then olive oil on my salads, so I'd prefer none to very little fat.

Okay Plucked -is that as in a chicken or what - no, I am only joking. Here a few to get you started
Corn-of - the cob
1 cup corn off the cob with the milk
1/4 finelr minced shallot or equiv of onion - red onion is good
1/4 red bell pepper finel chopped
2 mushooms, finely chopped
I usually blend this in as well, and it gets thick and is savory. Of course I have added my spice selection
1 pint blueberries
1/2 lemon or lime juiced
Sometimes I add agave nectar instead of bananas - when this is really cold it is so good. I have also used it with Alissa crepes instead of the strawberries - ummm good.
1 head green or red leaf lettuce
1 cup chopped broccoli florets
1/2 cup chopped okra
2 tomatoes chopped
1 red bell pepper chopped
1 cup alfalfa sprouts
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 garlic clove finely chopped
After washing veggies, place in a large bowl and serve with tomato dill dressing
Now the dressing does have tahini - but you can dilute it with lemon juice:
3/4 cup tahini
3 tablespoons nama shoyu
5 garlic cloves fresh
1/2 cup fresh
1 tbs chopped fresh dillweed
Combine all he ingredients in a blender and blend on high for several minutes. It is important to make sure that all garlic cloves have been pulverized.
Tomato and onion soup
1/4 onion, diced
1-2 tbs nama shoyu
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp fresh chopped cilantro
1 tsp fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp cayenne
11/2 cups of hot to pinky touch water
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except the water and stir together. Then add the water. If you want it creamy- blend them all together in blender and serve immediatley
Chinese Cabbage from Zakhah
1 head small Chinese Cabbage, shredded
1 orange, juiced
1 lemon, juiced
1 tbs cold pressed seseame oil
1 tbs flax seed
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp unhulled sesame seeds
1 tsp orange zedt ground
1 tbs Nama SHoyu

Exploding raspberry jam
1 cup raspberries
1 cup dark raisins
