Induction-Friendly Recipes for Lazy Cooks Like Me! =]

Figured I would start a menu/recipe thread for all of us SUPER lazy cooks. Please post the carb count if you can!

The rule is that it cannot take more than 5 steps to prepare or have more than 10 ingredients. IT MUST BE INDUCTION- FRIENDLY. And no special tools or skills! Keep it simple, ladies and gents.. We're lazy or busy, lol.

One of my favorite (and VLC, I might add) recipes is a fajita salad.

Ingredients:
1. One chicken breast
2. a bag of salad mix (your choice)
3. regular ranch dressing (2 carbs per 2 tbsp.)
4. a package of mixed, cut bell peppers and white onions (find them at Kroger if you can-- it will save you all the time of cleaning and slicing them.)
5. Your choice of spices (I choose fajita spice usually)
6. Oil (I use canola for the fat)

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 400.
2. Throw some spices in a bowl and roll your chicken in it.
3. Toss it in a baking pan and add 3 pepper slices and 2 onion slices on top of the chicken.
4. Drizzle the food in oil (or the spices will become hard and very dry) and bake for about 40 minutes (depending on size of chicken breast of course)
5. Serve on top of the salad mix with 2 tablespoons of ranch dressing.

It's not beautiful, but it is tasty!


CARB COUNT: Approximately 8 carbs total.

In a large bowl mix all ingredients except bacon. When it is well mixed add the chopped up bacon and fold in to mixture,Chill for 4 hours then enjoy. You could any thing you like to this.I sometimes put in some chili powder and hot pepper. It is great.

This is my laziest recipe :P Don't say I didn't warn you!

1 tsp butter
1 lb lean ground beef
1 cup shredded cheese

Spices:
-Pepper to taste
-Salt to taste (I prefer celery salt for flavour)
-1 Tbs oregano
-Dash of chili peppers
-Dash of basil
-Dash of thyme
-Dash of whatever you think will taste good :P I've tried curry, turmeric and cumin before.

Melt butter in fry pan to grease it up. Brown beef in fry pan, adding spices as you go. If you add enough oregano it should soak up a lot of the butter and beef fat, leaving very little mess (use lean beef, not medium).

Empty cooked beef onto a plate, and divide into portions as you see fit. Cover with a proportional amount of shredded cheese and microwave for 1 min. Eat with spoon.

Refrigerate unused portions for reheating later.

That sounds very induction friendly and easy! That's what I'm talking about! =]

I love it!!
Maybe that will be my lunch tomorrow.

The best part about this is that I use most of those same ingredients but add some bell pepper to the mix and call it my "stuffed pepper" LOL!!

Also-- I shared these products with some friends in another thread. Thought I should share the wealth here too!
These are completely CARB FREE products. You can find them in Kroger's, if you have one, or right here: Diabetic Foods, Low Carb, Low Calorie Foods from Walden Farms - American Diabetes Wholesale

They make excellent sauces for chicken.

Unfortunately, I have not tried it yet! But I imagine if it isn't as sweet as I'd like, I will just add some Splenda. I love ketchup too. Just purchased it last night.

if you don't want to spend the money on the sauce, Linda has a recipe for homemade ketchup here Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes that might be cheaper to make, assuming you already have most of the spices. and even if you don't, it probably won't make that big of a deal. i haven't tried it yet, but it sounds pretty good.


here's my recipe contribution, i tried this last night and it turned out wonderful:

all you need is
bacon
cauliflower
salt

i put one of my cooling racks in a baking dish and put the bacon on that and baked it at 400F until it was done.
i removed the bacon and the rack and added the chopped up cauliflower to the bacon grease that was collected in the baking dish. tossed it around a bit, lowered the temp to 350, then roasted the cauliflower, stirring every now and then, until it was done. (sorry, i didn't time anything).
i sprinkled it with salt when it came out of the oven. very delicious!

i used the bacon for something else, and i'll probably make cauliflower mash tonight with the leftovers.

One of my lazy "go-tos": Tuna Patties:

Ingredients:
1. 3 cans of tuna
2. 2 eggs
3. handful of shredded cheese
4. salt and pepper to taste
5. celery, onions, or anything else you might want to add

Directions:
1. mix tuna, chopped veggies, eggs and cheese in bowl
2. Make into patties and put in an oiled pan, I cook mine on med/high
3. brown on each side for about 10 minutes total

Voila...yummy! I top mine with some spicy ranch

Approx about 2 carbs per patty, recipe makes 4-5 depending on size. Even my very very picky husband scarfed these down last night!
