SBD Recipes and Meal Ideas
 
Welcome to the South Beach Diet Recipe and Meal Ideas thread! :up:

Please post your SBD recipes with the only requirements being that they **be program and ** be labeled as to which Phase it is to be used to avoid confusion. Any helpful info will be appreciated I'm sure! All Phase 1 foods can also be eaten in Phase 2 but not vice versa.

Here goes.....let's have fun...."for the sweet tooth" :)

'Peanut Butter Cup' - All Phases 1-3
Serves 1

Ingredients:
1 no sugar added, fudgsicle
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
1-2 tablespoons light frozen whipped topping

Instructions:
Scrape the fudgsicle off the stick (microwaving it for about 15 seconds helps). Then stir in the natural peanut butter and the light whipped topping. Mix together and enjoy.

I put mine in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. Try this if you're craving a dessert, it's like eating sinful ice cream. :eek:

Count the calories in your sf/ff fudgsicle and light whipped topping, they are to be considered in the 75 calories per day sweet treats. The peanut butter is considered a nut/nut butter serving.

Bon Appetit!

Sautéed Spinach with Red Onion, Bacon & Cheese - Phase 1
 
Sautéed Spinach with Red Onion, Bacon & Cheese - Phase 1

Start to finish: 15 minutes

To make 4 servings, use a Dutch oven instead of a large skillet, and add 1 to 2 minutes to the spinach-cooking time.

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 10-ounce bag fresh spinach, tough stems removed
2 strips turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 wedge crumbled light laughing cow cheese

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until beginning to soften, about 1 minute. Add garlic and sauté, about 30 seconds more. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in bacon and sprinkle cheese on top. Serve immediately.

Makes 2 servings.

Cajun Blackened Shrimp - Phase 1
 
Cajun Blackened Shrimp - Phase 1

1 lb frozen, cleaned and deveined shrimp
cajun blackened seasoning
dash seasoning salt
2 T Olive Oil - divided use
Sprinkle of garlic powder
Tsp chopped garlic
Lemon juice


I get the frozen, cleaned and deveined because I'm lazy, :)

Thaw, rinse and pat dry the shrimp really good. I butterfly them so more of the spice mixture adheres because we like them hot.

Marinate in a bowl or plastic bag with a T of the Olive Oil, blackened seasoning, seasoning salt, garlic powder, a squeeze of lemon juice and chopped garlic for about 2 hours or so.

Put the other T Olive Oil in an iron or other heavy skillet, get it hot to slightly smoking but not too hot, takes just a few minutes for them to cook as you'll want to turn them or do a flip with them, scaping the skillet to pick up the blackened goodies.

Serve with slaw, mmmm

ETS: I also use this recipe for chicken breasts

3 Veggie Finger Salad - Phase 1 veggies, carrots being Phase 2
 
3 Veggie Finger Salad - Phase 1 veggies, carrots being Phase 2

3 WHOLE-small raw vegetables when sometimes a salad just doesn't click. (i.e. carrot*P2), (any type of pepper, cucumber, celery rib, whole dill pickle, tomato, cherry tomatoes, etc.,) sooooo, a serving size of guess-timating about a cup..and.....that would also be easy to put in a baggie and carried along as a safety net.

This idea was given to me by a friend from their OA eating plan.

1/4 stick of I can't believe it's not butter
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
1/2 container of light sour cream
1 8 oz. can of mushrooms
4-6 servings of long grain converted or brown rice


Since long grain converted rice takes close to 30 minutes to prepare, I always start the water boiling for the rice before I do anything else. Once you get the rice cooking, you spray a large frying pan with Pam and add the butter, allowing it to melt. Then add the diced onion to the pan and sautee until brown. Next add your beef and stir until it is brown, then add your mushrooms and mix well. Next add your 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup, mixing thoroughly and finally add the sour cream mixing well. Allow the mixture to simmer another 5 or 10 minutes. Spoon individual servings of the mixture over 1/2 cup of rice. Should make enough for 4-6 servings. Enjoy!

Shrimp Fried Rice
 
Here is another phase 2 dish:

3/4 pound of shrimp, deveined and tails removed
3 stalks of green onion, chopped finely
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of canola oil
Soy sauce
1/4 cup of I can't believe it's not butter
Garlic seasoning
4 servings of long grain converted or brown rice

You should prepare the rice ahead of time and place it in a bowl and refrigerate. This step is optional because I often forget to make my rice before hand and often just make it right before I prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Take the shrimp and cut into nice sized pieces. Sautee in melted butter and garlic. In the meantime, heat the oil in a large fry pan or wok. Add the green onion and sautee for 30 seconds. Remove the shrimp from the heat and set aside. Beat the 2 eggs with 2 tablespoons of water then add to heated green onion in the pan stirring frequently until the egg and green onion are mixed together and are firm. Add the rice and mix well. Add the shrimp and enough soy sauce to coat the rice again mixing well. Heat entire mixture for 2 minutes. Enjoy!

Excited now... I didn't know we could have cream of mushroom soup. I have a few fave recipes that I can now tweak to being SB friendly.

Hi tree! I was hesitant to post this beef stroganoff recipe because I believe this dish is more suited to Phase 3. I'm not quite in Phase 3 yet but almost so I probably take a few more liberties with some of the ingredients that I use than someone that is just starting out. I know LindaSue has a site with lots and lots of recipes including a recipe for from scatch cream of mushroom soup that you or anyone else interested in making this dish may want to consider. It seemed too complicated for me. So I just use the canned soup.

I'm sorry if I have misled anyone! Please forgive this recipe posting newbie! :)

Here's one I found--I'm Asian and grew up and love sweet bean cakes.
It looks strange, but boy is it good.

Phase 1

Black Bean Brownies

Preheat Oven: 350 Fahren

1 15 oz. can unseasoned black beans, drained and rinsed
4 eggs
1 1/2 Cups Splenda (1 Cup Wheylow)
3Tbl. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
2 TBL. oil (or 2 TBL. unsweetened applesauce for Phase 2)
1 TBL. vanilla
1/2 Cup dry non-fat milk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 Cup ricotta cheese
chopped nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pour into an 8x8 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cover with plastic wrap to keep fresh.

I just made this and it was really good. It was light textured, more cakey than fudgy. It's a keeper.

Moch Corn on the Cob - Phases 1 - 2 - and 3
 
Moch Corn on the Cob - Phases 1 - 2 - and 3
This is one of my old WW recipes

1 medium yellow squash
butter bud sprinkles
salt and pepper

Punch holes in the squash to keep it from exploding,
wrap in microwave safe plastic wrap or bag,
then microwave on high 4 or 5 minutes until tender.

Careful, it's hot....
take the wrapping off, split in 1/2, sprinkle well with the butter buds and add a little salt and pepper.

Delish!

White Chicken Chili - Phase 1?* - 2 and 3
 
White Chicken Chili - Phase 1?* - 2 and 3
Makes 6 servings

3 tablespoons olive oil
(the oil can be omitted if you like, just saute
the onion in a little of the broth instead )
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 can (4-ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 cans (16 ounces) BUSH'S BEST Great Northern Beans undrained
1 can (14.5 ounces) chicken broth
1 1/2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken breast
Shredded Monterey Jack cheese (low fat choice) (optional)
Salsa (optional)

In large skillet, cook onion in oil for 4 minutes or until transparent. Add chilies, flour and cumin; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add beans and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened. Add chicken; cook until hot. Garnish with cheese and salsa, if desired.

*The reason I put the questionable notation there on it being Phase 1 is that it is Phase 1 products but I kind of hesitate to add in combination food recipes until Phase 2. It will be okay, it's just a personal choice.
