These look very interesting, Judy. Maybe I'm missing it but I'm looking for the serving size that the nutritional info belongs to (and thanks for posting that). Is it 1 Tbsp serving size for each of these?

Yes, it'd be 1 or 2 tbsp per serving.

I just brought the whole Daily Dish...this is exactly how it came to me.

Maybe if I paid more attention to detail, I'd get my weight down further....its just not that important to me now.

Quick & Easy Mexican Chicken Soup
Submitted by: SnowWhite


This tastes just like the soup my Mom use to make! Wonderful and comforting even WITHOUT the potatoes & carrots!

2 T. olive oil
2 c. chopped white onion
1 T. minced garlic
4 bouillon cubes
6 c. water
4 c. cooked chicken
1 & ½ c. sliced yellow squash
1 & ½ c. sliced zucchini
4 c. chopped cabbage
1 & ½ c. chopped celery hearts (with leaves)
2 tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. ground black pepper
½ c. chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 lime

Optional garnish
Mexican cheese blend
Lime wedges
Pickled jalapeno slices or red pepper flakes


In a large soup pot, sautee the onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until tender. Increase heat to “high” and add the 6 cups of water. Once water is boiling reduce heat back to medium and add the 4 bouillon cubes. Stir until the cubes dissolve. Add the chicken, squash, zucchini, celery, cabbage, cumin, black pepper and cilantro. Simmer (covered) for about 25 minutes. Turn off flame and add the juice of 1 lime. Serve with garnishes such as a blend of Mexican cheeses, sliced avocado, lime wedges, pickled jalapeno slices (or red pepper flakes).

Enjoy!

From the SBD Daily Dish:

The Best Way to Start Your Day
It's often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That's because skipping your morning meal can lead to a dip in blood sugar that may cause cravings for unhealthy, refined foods. This creates a cycle that can lead to overeating and thus impede your weight-loss efforts. Instead, start your day with one of these nutritious, irresistible meals. Not only will it keep you satisfied and stabilize your blood sugar, but research shows that a morning meal can increase energy as well as improve work and school performance.


Sausage and cheese cups phase I
These egg "muffins" make a hearty breakfast that can be eaten on the run. Make them ahead and warm them in the microwave for a fast and slimming breakfast treat.
Makes 6 cups
Ingredients
4 ounces turkey sausage or crumbled turkey bacon
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
5 large eggs
1 can (12 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded, reduced-fat cheddar cheese
Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 6-cup nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray, or line with paper baking cups.
In a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage, pepper, and onion for 5 minutes or until the sausage is no longer pink. Spoon the mixture into a bowl and let cool slightly. Stir in the eggs and mushrooms. Evenly divide the mixture among the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with the cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the egg is set.

From today's SBD Daily Dish:

Two Ways to Taste Curry
Though curry, a blend of many spices, is considered pan-Asian, it originated in India. Curry powder is used widely in savory dishes throughout India and Southeast Asia to season meats, fish, vegetables, and even fruit. Enjoy the piquant flavor of curry at your next meal with one of these delicious dishes.
Indian Vegetable Curry (Phase 1)
Curried Brown Rice With Mushrooms and Peas (Phase 2)

Indian Vegetable Curry (Phase 1)
Makes 4 servings
Description
This tasty Indian-style curry has a delicious tomato-and-yogurt-based sauce. Enjoy it with brown rice on Phase 2 or 3. For a variation, add chopped fresh spinach or arugula during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Start to finish: 35 minutes
Ingredients
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, finely chopped
11⁄2 teaspoons curry powder
3⁄4 teaspoon cumin seeds
1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne
11⁄4 cups canned diced tomatoes
1 cup low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
11⁄2 cups small cauliflower florets
4 ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 1" pieces
1 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1⁄3 cup water
1 medium zucchini, cut into 1⁄4" cubes
1⁄4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
Instructions
In a food processor, combine garlic and ginger; pulse until finely chopped.
In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic mixture, onion, curry powder, cumin seeds, and cayenne; stir well. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
Add tomatoes, 3⁄4 cup of the yogurt, and salt; stir to combine. Add cauliflower, bring to a gentle simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. Add green beans, chickpeas, and water; cover and simmer for 10 minutes more. Add zucchini and continue to cook, covered, until vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes more.
Spoon curry into 4 bowls and season lightly with additional salt, if desired. Top with remaining yogurt and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve warm.

Fall is upon us, and with the weather cooling off it's a great time to curl up with a hot bowl of South Beach Diet–friendly soup. Brimming with vegetables, beans, and savory broth, these fiber-rich, flavorful soups will keep you warm and satisfied long after the last spoonful.

1 can (15 1/2 – 19 ounces) white or cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes
2 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced
1 medium yellow squash, quartered
1 dried bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 teaspoon fresh thyme

Pistou
3 medium garlic cloves, halved
3 cups packed fresh basil leaves (2 1/2 ounces, from 2 medium bunches)

5 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Instructions

For the Mushroom Spread it is 16 servings. I made this last Thanksgiving and it was a hit with everyone. Also good for Super Bowl Sunday spreads.

1 TB chili powder
1 tsp dried ginger
1 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/3 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 teas ground allspice

(This makes enough sauce for about 1.5 lbs of chicken, maybe even more. I realize it looks like a lot of ingredients, but don't stress over it. Use the herbs you have, skip what you don't have. It will taste fine regardless )

The easiest way to do this in a blender, although you can certainly do it in a bowl as well. Add all ingredients, except the green onions, into the blender and mix until smooth. Add green onions and blend until onions are chopped finely but still visible. (In other words, you want to see bits of green in the sauce.)

Pour over chicken or pork, marinate overnight and grill (or broil.)

I made the roasted garbanzo beans today (inspired by Lisabinil's recipe ) Yum! I was thinking these might be good to pack in the kid's lunches as well as a movie munchie!

They remind me of the burnt little *almost* unpopped popcorn kernels ya get at the bottom of the popcorn bag..My faves!

My version..

Roasted Garbanzo Beans
(AKA faux half/popped popcorn kernels)

Ingredients:
1 - 15 oz can garbanzo beans. rinse, drained, and pat dry w/ paper towels.
Olive oil or nonstick spray
Any spice ya like (I used smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper)


Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Spray cookie sheet with nonstick
In a small bowl, toss the garbanzos with 1 T olive oil and the spices.
Spread the spiced beans onto the greased cookie sheet.
Bake @ 400 for about 18-20 minutes til they are crunchy.

Braised Mini Meatballs

Braised Mini Meatballs

These delicious minis hold together beautifully--without the need for bread crumbs. Dampen your hands with cold water before rolling the meatballs to prevent sticking.

1 1/2 lb extralean ground beef
2 lg eggs
1 med onion, finely chopped
1/2 c chopped fresh parsley + additional for garnish
1 tsp dried basil
3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 c dry red wine
1/4 c unsalted tomato paste
2 c reduced-sodium beef broth
2 tsp granular sugar substitute



1. Combine beef, eggs, onion, parsley, basil, pepper, and salt in large bowl. Mix well with hands or wooden spoon. Form into 36 (1 1/4") meatballs.

2. Heat oil over medium-high heat in large nonstick skillet. Carefully add meatballs (this can be done in batches, if necessary) and brown on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove to plate and pour off any fat from skillet. Return meatballs to skillet and reduce heat to low.

3. Whisk wine and tomato paste in small bowl. Pour over meatballs. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until tomato mixture has thickened, about 10 minutes. Add broth and continue to simmer until sauce is slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir in sugar substitute. Sprinkle with additional parsley just before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Ricotta Cheesecake with Lemon Drizzle and Pine Nuts

Ricotta Cheesecake with Lemon Drizzle and Pine Nuts
Phase 1
3 tablespoons pine nuts
6 large eggs, separated
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup plus 1 teaspoon granular sugar substitute
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (32-once) container part-skim ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Position rack in middle of oven and heat oven to 275°F. Lightly coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Spread nuts on baking sheet and toast until lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Cool. Increase oven to 325°F.
In a large metal bowl, with an electric mixer at high speed, beat egg whites until frothy, about 1 minute. Add cream of tartar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes more. Set aside.
In a separate large bowl, beat egg yolks, 1/3 cup of the sugar substitute, and vanilla for 1 minute. Add ricotta and zest, and beat on high until smooth.
Gently fold 1/3 of the whites into the yolk mixture, then add the rest of the whites and gently fold until well combined. Pour batter into pan, place pan on baking sheet, and bake until cake is golden and mostly set, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Remove cake from oven and cool on a rack for 20 minutes.
Combine lemon juice and remaining 1 teaspoon sugar substitute in a saucepan; bring to a simmer over low heat. Remove from heat and gently brush the surface of the cooled cake with 2/3 of the warm lemon mixture; drizzle the remaining mixture into the cracks. Sprinkle the top with pine nuts.
Cool cake completely, then run a knife around the edge before releasing from pan. Chill, loosely covered, for 4 hours or overnight. Serve chilled.

White Chipotle-Chicken Chili

White Chipotle-Chicken Chili
Chili is a classic cold-weather comfort food. We've created this healthy version to keep you warm this winter. And believe us, this ultra-flavorful dish tastes even better the next day, so make enough for leftovers.

White Chipotle-Chicken Chili (Phase 1)

Makes 6 servings

Description
Chipotle peppers are jalapeños that have been dried and smoked. They come canned, packed in adobo (a tomato-based sauce); you can find them in the Hispanic or ethnic-foods aisle of your market. Beware: Unless you like your chili super-hot, remove the seeds from the peppers before adding.

Ingredients
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves (1 3/4 pounds), cut into 1" chunks
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
Salt and black pepper
3 (14.5-ounce) cans white kidney or cannellini beans, drained (save 1/2 cup draining liquid) and rinsed
2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
1 teaspoon canned chipotle chili, seeded and minced
1/2 cup nonfat half-and-half
Garnishes: Shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese, chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Instructions
Warm oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add onion; cook 4 minutes, stirring. Push onions to one side; add chicken to skillet and sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook 5 minutes, stirring.

Increase heat to medium-high. Add 2 cans of beans and draining liquid, 1 1/4 cups broth, and chipotle; bring to a simmer. Cook 10 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

Meanwhile, combine remaining 1 can of beans and 3/4 cup broth in bowl of food processor. Puree until smooth, then add to soup in pot, along with half-and-half. Simmer a few minutes, stirring, until ingredients are warmed through and flavors incorporate. Serve hot; garnish with cheese and cilantro.
