Chinatown Stuffed Mushrooms

I got this from an email from 24hour Fitness... just thought I would pass it along... hope it is okay for this thread

Chinatown Stuffed Mushrooms
****************************
24 large fresh mushrooms (about 1 pound), cleaned and stems
trimmed
1/2 (20-ounce) package Jennie-O Turkey Store(R) Ground Turkey,
any variety
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/6 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

Remove stems from mushrooms; finely chop enough stems to equal 1
cup. Cook turkey with chopped stems and garlic in medium skillet
over medium-high heat until turkey is no longer pink, stirring
to separate turkey. Spoon off any fat. Stir in bread crumbs,
green onions, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, ginger, egg white and
pepper flakes, if desired; mix well.

Brush mushroom caps lightly on all sides with remaining 1
tablespoon soy sauce; spoon about 2 teaspoons stuffing into each
mushroom cap*. Place stuffed mushrooms on rack of foil-lined
broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat 5 to 6 minutes or
until hot.

*Mushrooms may be made ahead to this point; cover and
refrigerate up to 24 hours. Add 1 to 2 minutes to broiling time
for chilled mushrooms.

FROM www.bodyforlife.com recipe collection. Havent tried it yet.

*Pineapple Cheesecake*

1 cup low-fat vanilla wafers ~ 2 Tbsp melted margarine
4 scoops vanilla protein powder
3 oz sugar-free lemon Jello ~ 1 cup boiling water
2 1/2 cups low fat cottage cheese
1 Tbsp granulated sugar ~ 8 1/2 oz crushed pinapple ~ 1 Tbsp water
~ 2 tsp cornstarch

Combine one cup finely ground low-fat vanilla wafers and two
tablespoons melted margarine in a bowl. Mix well. Press a layer onto
the bottom of a medium pie pan. (I usually cheat and buy a pre-made
low-fat crust.)Combine four scoops of vanilla protein powder, three
ounces of lemon-flavored gelatin, and one cup boiling water in a
saucepan. Stir until gelatin has completely dissolved and cooled
slightly.
Combine 2 1/2 cups low-fat or non-fat cottage cheese and one
tablespoon of granulated sugar in a blender or food processor. With
motor running, add gelatin mixture in a thin, steady stream, and
process until well blended. Pour into prepared crust and chill
thoroughly. Heat 8 1/2 oz crushed pineapple in juice in a small
saucepan, over medium flame. Combine 1 tablespoon water and 2
teaspoons cornstarch to make a paste. Stir cornstarch mixture into
pineapple. Heat and stir until mixture comes just to a boil and
thickens. Remove from heat and cool completely. Spread on top of
cheesecake. Chill thoroughly. Makes 5 servings. Each serving is an
authorized meal. This is from the recipe section at bodyforlife.com.
It's yummy!

I made the pineapple cheesecake recipe above and it was delicious!! I made a couple of changes though. I didn't want to use the low fat vanilla wafers because of the carbs and trans fats in them, so I made a crust from Dana Carpender's cookbook:

1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup splenda
1/2 stick butter, softened

Blend the butter and splenda until fluffy, add the pecans and protein powder. Press into a pie plate sprayed with butter flavor cooking spray. Bake at 325 for about 10 minutes until lightly browned. Cool and fill.

Also, the recipe above say 3 oz. of lemon jello but the packages are .3 oz, so I figured it meant one pacakge (small). That worked out great!

So, I pulled some of these marrinateds & stuff from ww.maggiewang.com today...they sound good:

BASIC CHINESE COOKING METHOD
1. Slice up 1/2 pound of the lean meat of your choice and marinate it for 30 minutes in the appropriate marinade/coating.
2. Wash and cut up 2-3 cups of fresh vegetables. Frozen can be used, but isn’t as crisp
3. Optional: Mince 1 teaspoon each of garlic, ginger root, and/or green onion.
4. Prepare one of the sauces from the recipes below in a small bowl and set aside.
5. In a non-stick skillet or wok heated to medium high and coated with cooking spray, add the optional items (if desired) and stir fry until fragrant, then add the meat and stir fry until it is cooked all the way through. Remove from heat and set aside in another container.
6. Return pan to stove and spray a bit more cooking spray on it. Add vegetables and stir fry until cooked but still crisp–with green veggies, you can see the color change to a brighter green. (If you are using crunchy veggies like broccoli, carrots or cauliflower, add about 1/4 c. water and cover for 3-4 minutes to steam them a bit.)
7. Add the cooked meat back into the pan.
8. Add the prepared sauce and stir the mixture until the veggies and meat are evenly coated and the sauce thickens into a semi-transparent glaze.
9. Divvy the meal up into 2-3 servings (3 if you are female, 2 if you are male) and serve with 1/2-1 cup of brown rice.
Now here are the marinade and sauce recipes:
Add hot peppers, ginger root, green onions, garlic, etc to taste if they are not included in the recipe, and you like a little extra zing to your meals.

(Why add the dash of sweetener? A little known secret about Chinese restaurant fried rice is that the cooks always add sugar to it. That’s why the rice at a restaurant tastes so good, while the fried rice most people make at home tastes like crap.)

These go with the above post. They are common resturant dishes using the above sauces.. Again from www.maggiewang.com

Here are a few common restaurant items using the sauces:

Oyster Sauce: Beef with snow peas, beef with broccoli, ANY veggies in oyster sauce

White Sauce: Moo Goo Gai Pan, Shrimp with snow peas, shrimp with broccoli, any shrimp/veggie combo

Brown Sauce: Beef with Chinese Vegetables, beef with broccoli, chicken with broccoli or vegetables

Curry Sauce: Um…any meat with potatoes, carrots, and peas

Spicy Tomato Sauce: Shrimp in red sauce

Oh, and if you want to give the red/ketchup sauce a try, it is REALLY tasty with beef, green peppers, tomatoes, straw mushrooms, broccoli and baby corn.

Shakes and such....

Got these in an email... some look great......

EFA Shake
This one kills two birds with one stone: flax oil and cottage cheese.
Separately, they can cause repulsion and dry-heaving. But throw them in
a shake and they're magic. Put these in an electric blender: one scoop
chocolate protein powder, 2 tablespoons whole flax seeds, ½ cup
cottage cheese, 1 cup ice, couple of dashes Spenda. Blend on high for
about a minute, until all of the flax seeds have been ground.


Fruit Shake
Take frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or a
mixture thereof), and mix them in an electric blender with 1 scoop
vanilla or strawberry protein powder, 1 cup ice, ½ cup cottage cheese,
some Splenda, and ½ cup of nonfat milk (or vanilla soymilk if you're
feeling kinky). Blend for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Cheesecake Shake
Go buy some lowfat Jell-O cheesecake mix, and add one tablespoon to this
mix: 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, ¾ cup of cottage cheese, 1 cup
ice cubes, a dash of Splenda, and just enough water to mix it in a
blender. To make this really special, add a couple of drops of vanilla
extract and a graham cracker. Blend on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Blueberry Cheesecake
Use another tablespoon of the cheesecake Jell-O, and mix with the
following in an electric blender: ¾ cup frozen blueberries, ¾ cup
cottage cheese, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 cup ice, and ½ cup
water. Blend on high for 30 secs, then pour into a bowl and top with
about ½ inch of raw oat bran. Lightly press the oat bran into the mix
, until it looks like a crust, then refrigerate for an hour.

Peanut Butter Cup Pudding
Put 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 tablespoon chocolate fudge
Jell-O mix, 2 tablespoons natty peanutbutter, ¾ cup cottage cheese, 1
cup ice cubes, and ½ cup water in a blender, blend on high for 1
minute. Pour it into a bowl, sprinkle with chopped walnuts, and
refrigerate for an hour.

Protein pancakes:
1 cup oatmeal

Ingredients:

1 tbsp sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding mix, dry
1 tbsp natural peanut butter, chunky
8 oz. cold water or lowfat milk.
3-6 ice cubes
Directions:
Add all ingredients to blender, blend, and serve. I like to add the
peanut butter in last so it stays a little chunky, just like the peanut
brittle it is replacing.

Directions:
Add all ingredients to blender, blend, and pour into cup. This tastes
great without the mint so don't worry if you don't have it around. The
shake is a light green even without the food coloring but if you want it
green (like The Hulk!), you'll need a few drops.

Ingredients:
½ cup dry measure oatmeal, cooked in water and cooled

*************************************
Chicken on a Stick Recipe
*************************************
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approx. 4 breasts)
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup plum sauce
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
1 tablespoon grated gingerroot
2 tablespoons dry sherry
2 tablespoons white vinegar

Trim any excess fat from chicken breasts, cut lengthwise into
1/2 inch strips. Lightly flatten chicken between wax paper using
a rolling pin or meat mallet. Mix all remaining ingredients in a
large container, add chicken and toss to coat. Cover and
refrigerate for 2 hours.

Set oven to broil. Remove chicken from marinade and discard
marinade. Thread chicken onto 10-inch wooden skewers. Broil 3-4
inches from heat for about 4 minutes each side. Chicken can also
be cooked on barbecue, but skewers should be soaked in water for
20 minutes before threading chicken.

Makes 8 servings

I have been attempting to make a quick bread recipe that is meant to accompany meals (doesn't have enough protein on its own), and I think it's ready to share. I've now made two variations, both of which are very moist and filling

Pumpkin (or Applesauce) bread

1 c. old fashioned oats
1 t. baking powder
1 egg + 1 white
¾ c. pumpkin or ½ c. unsweetened applesauce
2 t. cinnamon
½ t. nutmeg
⅛ t. ginger
3 T. DaVinci syrup
Beat the wet ingredients together, and then mix in the dry ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes in small bread pan (sprayed with Pam). Recipe makes 3 servings, each with 148 calories, 3g fat, 22g carbs, 4g fiber, 7g protein.

Herbed Pan Bread (a variation of Shannycake muffin).

4 egg whites
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup lowfat Cottage Cheese
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4tsp. sage
1/4tsp. rosemary
1/4 tsp. lemon pepper

Pour into two-three small mini loaf pans, bake for 25 to 30 minutes. I slice this and toast it in a toaster oven and make a small meal sandwich. It's also good as muffins with 1/3 of a cup of shredded lowfat cheddar cheese.

SHerri originally posted these.. I am putting them up for safe keeping,

Pat...Here are some homemade protein bar recipes I posted a little while ago on the daily chat. They can be made with whey protein instead of soy.

5 tbsp natural peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
* 1/2 cup dry oat meal or whole grain hot cereal (uncooked)
* 1/2 cup oat flour (double the dry oats if you do not have oat flour)
* 6 scoops chocolate whey protein (approximately 132 grams worth of low-carb protein powder)
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 2 tablespoons flax seeds (optional)
* 1 cup non-fat dry milk
* 1/2 cup water (depending on what type of protein you use, you may need to add more)
* Modifications: Use vanilla protein and replace ~1/4 cup of the oatflour with a variety of nuts, seeds, or dried berries.

Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Combine dry ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix - the mixture will be crumbly and dry. Add water & vanilla. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, everything until a dough forms. The dough will be sticky. Spread dough into pan using a clean wooden spoon or spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Refrigerate a few hours (or freeze for an hour) and cut into 9 squares. Wrap bars individually (use sandwich bags or plastic wrap) or store in covered container between sheets of wax paper. Keep refrigerated

Need a boost after your workout? This wonderful combination of flavors and moistness make this recipe from Body Trends one you will return to again and again. Not only does this recipe taste great, but it is good for you.
Ingredients:
• 2 Level scoops of chocolate soy or whey-based protein powder
• 1 Tablespoon of natural peanut butter
• 1/4 Cup steel cut oatmeal*
• 4 Egg whites
• 1/4 Teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 Cup unsweetened applesauce
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Mix egg whites & uncooked oatmeal. Add remaining ingredients.
3. Spray nonstick cooking spray in a 8"x8" baking dish. Spread mixture in an even layer, over the bottom of the dish. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the edge starts to pull away from the sides of the dish.
4. Let cool for 5 minutes and cut into bars.
Makes 9 bars
Correction on this recipe...I got it off a forum and found the original recipe. The nutritional information is wrong too.

It should be 4 Tablespoons of natural peanut butter...the rest of the recipe is correct.

Correct Nutritional info for these is:
Totals for the entire recipe:
Calories: 845
Fat: 36 grams
Carbs: 54 grams
Fiber: 9 grams
Protein: 77 grams

Totals per bar (makes 9 bars)
Calories: 94
Fat: 4 grams
Carbs: 6 grams
Fiber: 1 gram
Protein: 8.5 grams
* Steel cut oats refers to the basic chopping of oats from their original form.
Rolled oats are actually processed and lose nutrients in the transition. Rolled oats are the most common form (think Quaker) found in the grocery store chains.
Steel cut oats are available at most health food stores. They are usually sold in bulk and are often called Irish oats.

Christine's Renegade Protein Bars
Fat: 3g | Protein: 21g | Carbs: 33g | Servings: 9

You think these protein bars are badass, you should see this girl swing a kettlebell....

Dry Ingredients:
3 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups powdered non-fat milk
1 tsp Vanilla
4 scoops vanilla protein powder

Wet Ingredients:
1 cup sugar free pancake syrup (Be careful which syrup you buy - reduced calorie doesn't mean sugar free.)
2 egg whites or silken tofu
1/4 cup Orange Juice (or substitute water or liquid from other fruit)
1/4 c. natural applesauce (or 1/2 banana)

Other optional ingredients: (which will change the nutritional profile; you may need to experiment with the other ingredients to obtain the right consistency)
Raisins
Nuts
Peanut butter
Coconut

*Substituting quinoa for the oatmeal increases the protein greatly, but also increases the calories. I sometimes use a mixture of oatmeal and quinoa and it tastes great.


Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Mix all dry ingredients (I use a Kitchen Aid on the lowest setting)
3. Mix all wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then add slowly to the dry ingredients (while stirring)
4. I use a 9 x 12 baking dish, coated with cooking spray; others may prefer a thinner "bar" and can use a cooking sheet.
5. Bake until edges are crisp and browned. (I start with 15 minutes and test with a toothpick.)

These are from Maggie Wang from this forum…here is the link removed

The stats on all of them are on target for a 40/40/20 or 40/30/30 macronutrient ratio. Unless otherwise noted, the recipes yield 10 bars each.

These are great as portable snacks, don't contain preservatives, are no-bake, and are a great way to use up that "OMG, why did I buy this brand of icky stuff" protein powder that's hiding away in your pantry.

Here is JuliaL revamp of one of the above recipes. Thanks for sharing

Quote:
Sure! I make those Christine's bars just about every weekend and I've got it down to a science. Here is how I make them:

3 cups rolled oats
1 cup fat free dry milk
4 scoops vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup splenda (optional)
1 cup low fat or fat free cottage cheese
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 cup no sugar applesauce
1/2 cup Torani's or Davinci's SF vanilla syrup
1 cup dried chopped apples (optional)

Mix them all together and put into a 9x13 pan sprayed with butter-flavor cooking spray. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes until center is set and edges are brown. Cut into 9 bars.
Here is another recipe a gal on the bffm yahoo site found yesterday from Food Tv.. Pretty carby, and uses soy, but you can ajust it to whey and play with the carbs.

http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._31336,00.html

4 ounces soy protein powder, approximately 1 cup
2 1/4 ounces oat bran, approximately 1/2 cup
2 3/4 ounces whole-wheat flour, approximately 1/2 cup
3/4-ounce wheat germ, approximately 1/4 cup
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 ounces raisins, approximately 1/2 cup
2 1/2 ounces dried cherries, approximately 1/2 cup
3 ounces dried blueberries, approximately 1/2 cup
2 1/2 ounces dried apricots, approximately 1/2 cup
1 (12.3-ounce) package soft silken tofu
1/2 cup unfiltered apple juice
4 ounces dark brown sugar, approximately 1/2 cup packed
2 large whole eggs, beaten
2/3 cup natural peanut butter
Canola oil, for pan


Line the bottom of a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish with parchment paper and lightly coat with canola oil. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the protein powder, oat bran, wheat flour, wheat germ, and salt. Set aside.

Coarsely chop the raisins, dried cherries, blueberries and apricots and place in a small bowl and set aside.

In a third mixing bowl, whisk the tofu until smooth. Add the apple juice, brown sugar, eggs, and peanut butter, 1 at a time, and whisk to combine after each addition. Add this to the protein powder mixture and stir well to combine. Fold in the dried fruit. Spread evenly in the prepared baking dish and bake in the oven for 35 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 205 degrees F. Remove from the oven and cool completely before cutting into squares. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container for up to a week.

I don't have nutrition counts for these, but as long as you use low-fat/fat-free ingredients, I think the basic bones of the recipes are healthy.

Here are a couple of recipes I created in the last week that went over well in our house, if you want to try them. One caveat - I don't measure anything, so all the measurements are estimates. I can't always remember which seasonings I used, so experiment with what you like. (In most cases, I use "low fat" varieties of ingredients when applicable, so these meals are pretty healthy too.)

LAYLA'S SALMON CAKES

Ingredients:
2 medium sized salmon filets, COOKED (canned salmon would probably work too)
mayonnaise - about 3 dollops
cracker or bread crumbs 1/4 - 1/2 cup (I use Ritz whole wheat crackers)
green pepper 1/4 to 1/2 cup (finely diced)
onion 1/4 to 1/2 cup (finely diced)
cajun seasoning/bay seasoning 2 - 3 Tablespoons
chopped garlic 1/4 teaspoon
oregano 1/4 teaspoon
grill seasoning 1/2 teaspoon
red pepper 1/4 teaspoon
salt and pepper to taste

Flake the cooked fish into small bits and combine in a bowl with all the other ingredients. You want a "meatball-like" consistency, since these are essential fish meatballs of sorts.

Shape into hamburger-sized patties, pretty flat and thin (about 1/4 inch) and place in a hot pan that has about 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil (or other oil) in it. Cook a few minutes on each side, until golden brown. (Remember everything is already cooked, so you're just "cooking" for texture.)

That's it! I served them on a bed of spring greens.

LAYLA'S RICE STUFFED CHICKEN CORDON BLEU

Ingredients:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Thinly sliced ham - 4 slices
filling:
2 cups brown rice (cooked)
soft bacon pieces (I used the jarred kind) 1 Tablespoon
white cheese (I had provolone) about 3 sandwich sized slices
yellow cheese (I had colby) about 2 sandwich sized slices
cream cheese 2 Tablespoons
milk - 1/4 to 1/2 cup
thyme - about 1 Tablespoon
red pepper - 1/4 teaspoon
chopped garlic - 1 teaspoon
Lawry's season salt, salt and pepper to taste
coating:
cracker or bread crumbs - 1/4 to 1/2 cup
parmesan cheese - 1/4 to 1/2 cup
thyme - 1 teaspoon
Lawry's season salt, salt and pepper to taste

Pound chicken breasts flat.

Combine coating ingredients and coat one side of chicken breast throughly. Place one slice of ham on the uncoated side of the chicken.
Combine filling ingredients and place a few heaping spoonfuls on the uncoated side of chicken breast and fold over. Place in a greased casserole dish. Do this will all the chicken.

Place remaining filling mixture around the chicken in the dish and top with crumbs.

Bake at 375 until the chicken is no longer pink.

Enjoy!
