Hearts of Palm
 
I had forgotten all about these. After seeing a post about Dreamfields Mac n Cheese, I remembered I did a Mockafoni and Cheese last July 4th with hearts of palm. My son didn't like it, but I thought it was pretty good. I'm gonna pick up a few cans to play with when I go grocery shopping again this week.

So if you have any Hearts of Palm recipes, please post.
Thx

I don't really have any recipes that use it, but I do love it in a salad!

My fav way to eat them is in a vinaigrette topped green salad, too.

Hearts of Palm
 
This is an ez thing to put together.
Add a bit of fresh garlic.
I think one could use them in place of artichoke
hearts in chicken dishes etc.
Another idea is adding chopped palm to crab salad.
This is an underused lc veggie IMHO

Maria (the LC blogger) uses it shredded in chicken soup and cream of chicken soup. We really like that application.

I love hearts of palm, but here they cost over $4 a can. and I can snack on a whole can in a heartbeat!

CarolynF 03-14-2012 11:13 AM

Hmm..What is the best brand of these "hearts" do you think? The brand at Wallie wasn't that flavorful..

I found them at the 99cent store once....just mentioning it because they get different stuff all the time and most of the time, no repeats.

At Walmart here, they are around $4 per can also. EEK!!

I'm not sure if I've ever eaten it/them. I think I have a can in my "pantry", that I bought, but have never known what to do with it. I think maybe I had seen a recipe using it, found it, bought it, then couldn't remember what or where the recipe was.
So I'm interested in more recipes too. But seems to me, I remember having noticed they were pretty expensive too.

Mmm, they taste like artichoke hearts. Very good as a snack with ranch dressing, or in a salad. I bet they could be chopped up and blended with cheese and it would be similar to the hot artichoke cheese dip.

Pretty crunchy and yes, great in salads!

I didn't see this before. I also use them as vessels for chunky dips and chopped up in dips. I love hearts of palm.

Dottie 02-07-2013 07:56 PM

Check your Hispanic food aisle. Goya makes them, too, for about $2.50 a can (Palmitos) The only ingredients are: Hearts of Palm, Water, Citric Acid, and Salt.

Angeloco 02-08-2013 06:12 AM

Now I have to go look for them. Sounds yum.

SCOTTSDALEJULIE 02-08-2013 02:23 PM

I love them in a tossed salad.

brittone2 02-09-2013 07:45 AM

I buy them in large glass jars at Costco and shred in my food processor. I add them to soup as a rice sub. I got the idea from Maria's blog (Maria Health).

Thanks for the warm welcome! I am gaining so much great information and some amazing recipes! :jumpjoy:

I have a car but haven't used them yet. I was gonna make mac n cheese with them. The rice sounds good.

Dottie 02-10-2013 09:04 PM

:laugh: That would be some chunky mac and cheese, sherry ;)

sherrymyra 02-10-2013 09:16 PM

lol. I think they would need to be cut into noodle size.

Cars don't make good mac and cheese. Maybe a bike would be easier to cut into noodle size. ;)

I remember seeing a recipe with pic on somebody's low-carb recipe site for macaroni and cheese made from hearts of palm.




****I found the recipe on Maria's blog.

sherrymyra 02-11-2013 05:01 PM

lol. just figured that one out.

Dottie 02-11-2013 05:17 PM

Oh sorry, I was just teasing you :)

Dottie 02-14-2013 12:22 PM

I found several recipes online just googling "hearts of palm recipes". A lot of dip recipes (like your basic spinach/artichoke dips) and one that looked interesting calling for chopping the hearts of palm and putting them in a baking dish with butter, garlic, parsley and parmesan cheese and baking as a side dish. I may try that because at around 90 calories and 3g net carbs (1 can hearts, 2T butter, 2T parm) and 4 servings per recipe, it looked pretty "friendly".
