On Induction again....Soul food recipes NEEDED!!
Hi LC Family!! I'm on the induction phase again, and I need to know if any of you have any flavorful recipes. I read somewhere, I believe from EbonyEyes, a cornbread recipe that was good. If any of you have any ideas or recipes, please pass them on to me. (I started only eating meat and veggies, not thinking how far those could take me!!!)
I started 5/1/06 through 6/30/06 and lost 30. I have not been low carbing it for the past month, and have not been to the gym at all this month, but I'm determined to start back on Monday, 7/31/06!!! (By the way, I gained 6lbs this month. Please help me out. I do have Linda's website on my favorite's list, so that's a plus!!!

I don't think that the cornbread ingredients will be "induction-legal" - but what about some greens? Those are perfectly legal! Whatever greens you like cooked up in a big pot with a ham hock or chopped up fatback and some chicken stock and a few hot pepper flakes...
What else would you like? I'm not sure what all "soul food" is gonna encompass but I'd be happy to take a stab at whatever ideas you might have!
How about oven-fried chicken? Dip chicken pieces in melted butter, then roll in Parmesan cheese (the green can kind) seasoned up with some garlic and onion powder and some chile powder if you want - put into a greased dish, don't crowd; drizzle with a little more melted butter, then put into a 375* oven and cook til done - it will depend on what pieces you use. We love it this way.

MAJOR LCF POSTER!
1 1/2 lb turnips peeled, and
cut into 1/2" cubes
1 tbl butter
1 pkt sugar substitute
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbl heavy cream
1/4 tsp freshly-ground black pepper
splash of red wine vinegar (optional)
2 T. parmesan cheese (I add a bit more)
Place turnips in a large skillet. Add 1/3 cup water and butter to the skillet. Sprinkle turnips with sugar substitute, vinegar and salt. Cover skillet and cook turnips over medium heat 15 minutes, until tender.
Uncover skillet and continue cooking until all the water is evaporated. Stir in cream and parmesan; cook until cream thickens slightly and turnips are evenly coated, about 3 minutes. Add pepper before serving.
This recipe yields 4 servings.
If you've never had turnips this way before, you're in for a treat. Great side dish. (I love these things--made me not miss potatoes.)

I've also made creamed cabbage that was wonderful, but I basically fried the cabbage in bacon grease with a bit of chopped onion and lotsa pepper. Then I just added in some cream and parmesan (didn't measure, but rarely do) and it really was good, but tasted so different than regular fried cabbage.

greens and neckbones
okra and tomatoes (for after induction)
porkchops (fried and breaded with pork rinds)
fried chicken wings
fried catfish with pork rind breading
yellow squash and onion cooked in butter
caulirice and country style pork ribs
"macaroni and cheese" made with cauliflower
hash brown radishes.
these rn't the recipes of course but some suggestions for soul food or southern comfort food. make them per ur usual recipe and make the substitutions for them. sherrie's cornbread recipe is made with soy grits which i can't eat anymore (soy/thyroid) connection but it's delicious for real. the turnip green/neckbones thing for me along with a bit of okra and tomatoes and at one time, the cornbread does the trick. especially if u deep fry chicken wings (not the individual pieces, the whole ones) in oil (we don't even bread em. just do seasoning).
