      Delicious Vietnamese Salads

      These make delicious variations on salads when you get bored and the addition of the Nuoc Mam sauce spices up everything. You'll need:

      100 gr cooked and sliced chicken breast / lamb steak / beef or pork strips / smoked salmon, or even tinned salmon or tuna

      Lots of salad leaves ~ endive is nice, or use a mixture to make it interesting
      Diced tomatoes
      A bit of finely chopped capsicum
      Sliced cucumber
      Shredded coriander and/or mint leaves

      Nuoc Mam Giam Sauce
      In a small airtight container mix:

      2 cloves crushed garlic
      2 finely chopped chillis (less if you don't like hot, more if you do ~ I use 4)
      2 tbspn fish sauce or gravy
      1 tbspn lemon juice or vinegar (any vinegar is fine, even apple cider)
      1 tbspn of sweetner (I use 1 pack of Tropicana Slim)
      2 tbspn of warm water

      Mix all together in the container... it will make enough for 2 serves.

      Salad

      Layer the salad leaves in a bowl with other ingredients. Arrange meat or chicken strips on the top (or whatever you are using) and drizzle the sauce over all, making sure the meats are coated.

      NB: This works with anything you can imagine to use, eg: cooked flaked fish fillet, or fried cubes of tofu for vegetarians...

      The sauce should taste a bit sweet, a bit sour, a bit salty and a bit hot... a lot delicious! :)

      Teriyaki Stir Fry

      You'll need:

      1 large chicken breast (or pork, beef, lamb, whatever you like) cut into strips
      Broccoli (cut into small flowerettes)
      1 carrot (sliced into fine match stick strips)
      Mushrooms (sliced)
      A large bunch of greens (I use sawi hijau over here, but English spinach or Chinese greens work well)
      A handful of bean sprouts (optional)
      1/2 onion (finely sliced into strips)
      4 cloves garlic
      chillies to taste (finely sliced)
      2 tbsp teriyaki sauce
      A splash of fish sauce
      A splash of oyster sauce (optional)

      Method:

      Saute the onion, chillies and garlic in a wok or large frying pan until just starting to brown. Add the meat strips and stir fry. Add the carrot and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the greens and broccoli, then add the mushrooms (and sprouts, if using) last.

      When all look cooked (tender, but still have "bite"), drizzle over the sauces and stir through thoroughly.

      This is delicious on its own. If you are cooking for others, serve it with rice or noodles. Leftovers taste lovely for lunch and will keep for a couple of days in the fridge. (Try wrapping it in lettuce leaves or cabbage leaves ~ yum!) :D

    • Re: BODY TRIM RECIPES!! POST HERE!

      Hello All

      Tried these last night and fell instantly in love! :D

      No-tatoes:

      2 cups steamed cauliflower
      1/4 tspn garlic
      1 tbspn creamed cheese
      Dash of salt (optional)

      Blend all ingredients until smooth.

      I fed this to my carb-swilling DH and he didn't notice the difference.
      Gobsmacked, I was... :eek:

      Hi Nat, I'm not sure... oyster sauce is much thicker, but it's worth giving it a try. Let me know how it goes if you do :)

      I don't like the smell/taste of fish sauce either but with the sharpness of the lemon, the sweetness and the chilli, you can't really taste the fish sauce. Hmm, salty soy sauce might work...? Something like Kikkomen soy?

      Experiment time! :D

      Thanks for posting that QOW! I've seen the Atkins ladies talking about how yummy they are but didn't know where to find the recipe.

      They'll be a yummy base for garlic prawns, spag bol and curries too!

      Cheers! :D

      BT RICE

      Chop cauliflower in food processor until fine grains like rice
      Microwave or steam, I find microwave best, about 5 mins for 2 serves
      NO water as there is enough already
      Makes a great rice substitute but unlike the mash doesn't really taste like rice, not much taste at all, but soaks up curry juices beautifully!

      Snacks seem to be a problem for many of us, especially when we're working. Boiled eggs get very boring, so if you have good snack recipes or tips, please post them here!

      I often skip the snacks if I'm on the road or at meetings, but some I have used are:

      A few slices of pepperoni with a smear of camembert or brie cheese
      Cold lamb chops with a smear of mint sauce (I just cook up extra lamb chops when I'm cooking dinner)
      A slice of honey glazed leg ham
      2 pieces of crispy bacon

      And of course, those weird cheesecake things (which I have still to get right!), but should be a nice "dessert" snack after dinner.

      Tips and recipes greatly appreciated! :D

      I know its not 'technically' allowed but I figure since celery is a negative calorie pretty much just water food it should be fine...

      celery and p butter
      or
      celery and light cream cheese and a touch of sweet chilli
      :)

      Yep, I agree Chelles. I saw a recipe somewhere on the net for chips made out of celery root. I can't get that here, but it sounds interesting... :)

      Here's a meal I had last night ~ so simple and a delicious alternative to meat.

      SALMON STEAK ON SAUTED CABBAGE AND ONION WITH HORSERADISH CREAM

      Salmon steaks taste delicious and are full of omega 3 oils. They have a fatty skin and can be cooked on quite high heat (this makes the skin crispy and delicious)

      Salmon Steaks
      1/2 small cabbage
      1/2 small onion
      Horseradish Cream (the one I buy has less than 1g carbs per serve)

      Finely slice the cabbage and dice the onion small. Saute the onion with some coconut oil (or other oil) until clear, then add the cabbage. Cook and stir until the cabbage has reduced down.

      In another pan, fry the salmon steak (I used a generous slurp of coconut oil, but for strict BT use cooking spray).

      When everything is cooked, put the cabbage on a plate and drizzle over a little horseradish cream. Lay the salmon steak on top and add a bit more horseradish cream and cracked black pepper.

      Garnish with lemon or lime wedges and serve with a side salad of mixed greens, or iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber, topped with a drizzle of Balsamic vinegar.

      It's so simple to make but looks gourmet on the plate (non dieters can have potatoes on the side). The combination of tastes is delicious!

      Baked Ricotta Loaf



      400g ricotta 2 eggs ½ cup grated cheddar
      2 Tbsp parmesan Extra parmesan ½ cup shallots, chopped
      ½ cup red capsicum black pepper 2 tsp oregano

      Ingredients are quite flexible. Other options are chopped baby spinach, mushrooms, lightly cooked bacon or ham.

      If the ricotta is moist, drain in a colander for approx 1 hour in the refrigerator.

      Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl except the extra parmesan cheese, mix well. Place mixture into a silicon or non stick loaf tin, pack down gently, and sprinkle extra parmesan cheese over the top.

      Place into a hot oven and cook until top is nicely browned, approx 40 mins. Or place into patty tins, cooking time will be reduced.

      Remove from oven when cooked and let cool in tin. Can be served hot but It is quite wobbly, firms up on cooling. Loaf slices nicely when cool. Cakes are perfect for kids’ lunch boxes.

      Serve with a crisp leafy salad.

      Baked ricotta tart

      Ingredients (serves 6)
      500g ricotta 4 eggs ½ cup thin cream
      ¼ cup parmesan 2 tsp sea salt flakes.

      Method

      Preheat the oven to 190°C. Lightly grease a 26cm dish.
      Whip the ricotta, eggs, cream and parmesan, until smooth.
      Pour into the dish and bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden and the filling is just set.
      I put mine in a bain marie ( water bath) as I find it is much gentler when cooking ricotta and eggs and it doesnt burn!!!

      Serve warm, i like it with a fresh parsley lemon and tomato salad.
