JUST LIKE CAMPBELLS TOMATO SOUP

1 8 oz can no sugar tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1pkt splenda

HOw to Prepare:

YUM YUM YUM.

I love your idea!Here's a pick I Love.

This is my FAVORITE recipe - in fact I'm going to be making them in about 10 minutes! Even people who would gag if you TOLD them they were low-carb think these are excellent waffles!

"BettyR's Amazing Waffles

Preheat your waffle iron.

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, cubed
3 eggs
2 pkt. Splenda
1 tsp. or pkt. Stevia Plus
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
1 tsp. cider vinegar
1/4 cup cream
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

Put all ingredients into a food processor; process until smooth. Open processor and scrape down the sides with a spatula, then process another 60 seconds. The batter will be VERY thick - do NOT thin it down!

Place a heaping tablespoon (the kind you eat cereal with, not a measuring spoon) of batter into each waffle section of the iron and cook as you would regular waffles.

Makes 7 large waffles, approx. 3.6 carbs each

You can reduce the calories by using part-skim ricotta cheese in place of cream cheese and Hood's LC milk in place of the cream, if you like."

I don't bother to put the sweetener in because we use the leftovers like bread for sandwiches.

Also I've used all kinds of shredded cheese in these, whatever I have on hand. Even the Trader Joe's 3 cheese blend is really good! You don't taste the cheese (unless you used something very strong) and it works fine if you're not in possession of mozzarella at the moment.

I found this one invaluable when I was a newbie.It's from Linda Sue.WE Love it. This the large batch and no sugar.

I like to make a huge batch and store it in a large spice jar. This recipe makes enough for about 12 batches of taco meat:

LINDA'S TACO SEASONING - BIG BATCH
4 tablespoons chili powder
3 tablespoons paprika
4 tablespoons cumin
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
3 teaspoons ground coriander
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne
2 tablespoons salt
3 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 1/2 teaspoons MSG, optional

This makes enough for about 12 pounds of ground beef. It will fill a container about the size of one of those cans of parmesan cheese with the green label about 3/4 full. I bought my container at The Container Store but an old parmesan cheese jar would be ideal.

--------------------------------------------------

This one I've used so many times and still do. I mix bacon bits to this when I make the dressing.

RANCH-STYLE SALAD DRESSING MIX
1 tablespoon buttermilk powder
1 packet True Lemon *
1/2 teaspoon granular Splenda
1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon freeze-dried chives
Pinch cayenne

Mix well and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator (see my comments below). This makes about 7 teaspoons dry mix. To prepare the dressing, whisk the mix into:

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup water

Chill a couple hours to allow the flavors to develop and for the dressing to thicken. Add 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley, if desired.

Makes about 2 cups dressing

* The equivalent of 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar. If you can't get True Lemon, just add 1 1/2 teaspoons real lemon juice or white vinegar when you add the wet ingredients.

NOTE: 1 packet of dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix has 16 net carbs.

come on now dig in your own archives and find some good ones.

I think this is induction friendly. I picked it up from Linda-Sue. Just wondering if the "Beeb" is the Beeb that's here in LCF?

Beeb's Tuscano Soup

3 italian sausage links, hot or sweet
1 medium diced onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic, or 2 chopped garlic cloves
3 cups chicken broth
3/4 package frozen spinach
1/2 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes

Take the sausage out of it's casing and crumble in a pan with diced onion and minced garlic. Cook until sausage is brown and done.

Put chicken broth, frozen spinach, browned sausage mixture, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes in a pot and simmer for 30 minutes.

After simmer time, add the heavy cream and simmer for another 10 minutes, or until everything is nice and hot. Serve and enjoy.

The first recipe I used from Linda adds grated parmesan at serving.

____________________

This is wonderful for cold days and regular people love it too. I have been thinking of making it with some floopsies or oopsies or whatever those things are, toasting the little things with butter and garlic. I know I can make the soup. Not so sure about the oopsie-floopsie thing.

LindaSue 01-04-2011 11:15 AM

Yes, that's the same Beeb.

Tuna patties are one of my favorite.. Just had them again last night.. They are just delicious and very very LC. I think I got the recipe from the recipe board here a while ago, but I can't remember the actual name or poster.. (don't want to take credit where it's not due)

Tuna Patties:
( I make enough for dinner and lunch the next day)

2 cans of tuna (drained well)
3 stalks of chopped celery
2 eggs
2 cups of fried onions (Frenchs style in the can)
1/2 C of shredded cheese (any flavor you like)

Make patties, let them sit in the fridge for a bit to set up. Fry in a pan with olive oil until brown and crunchy.
Serve with drippings of soy sauce, or mustard.. whatever you like.

They are so dang numsters!!!

RVcook 01-05-2011 06:55 AM

I also make the mock danish, but add ground flaxseed and vanilla whey protein powder to give it more substance. And of course, I pan fry it. I swear...with the cinnamon...it tastes just like french toast!

This morning I'm having it with a little powdered erythritol and chopped peaches. Yummy!

graciejean 01-05-2011 07:21 AM

Thank you for taking the time to post these! We had the cabbage casserole tonight with leftover cubed ham instead of chicken. It was great!

24Fan 01-06-2011 11:46 AM

this was one of my first favorite and used over and over again recipes. Posted here by Cheri, it's a Stillman's recipe. I have used pork and also have made in crock pot.

Cola Chicken... omg is this ever good!!!

Cola Barbecue Chicken

Ingredients
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup catsup (There is a recipe for lowcarb catsup on the newbie site under must have recipes if you would like to try that)
12 oz. can diet cola (best if you use diet rite!)

Put chicken in nonstick skillet. I usually brown my chicken a little first before pouring the catsup and diet cola over the top. . Bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook for 45 minutes. Uncover, turn up the heat and continue cooking until the sauce becomes thick and adheres to the chicken. It turns into the most incredible BBQ sauce.

rosethorns 01-06-2011 12:24 PM

I love this one ^^^^^^^^^

I make Orange chicken in the crockpot.

1 whole chicken
1 can diet Rite tangerine
1 tsp. orange zest
spices to your tasting ( I use Spike and garlic)

I put all together in crock pot and cook till done.
I also do this with diet cherry cola. And different spices.
