1/4 teaspoon pepper.
1/4 teaspoon salt.
1/2 teaspoon Splenda..
Mix seasonings together..
Put asparagus in shallow pan, spray with oil, run under broiler ( 5 inches from flame for 5 minutes) Remove from broiler and spinkle with seasoning mixture..
Excellent recipe. a favorite with my family. For those not on Medifast, sprinkle the asparagus with olive oil and use sugar instead of Splenda..
Hope you enjoy as much as we do...
I eat sauteed zucchini several times per week. This is something my hubby and I made pre-MF too, just made it with butter (lots!) before and now with olive oil (little!):.
Chop up a mess of zukes into bite sized pieces. I quarter the veggie then chop into about 3/4" dice. Heat up 1-2 tsp olive oil (depending on amount of zucchini) in a pan. Add the veggies. Season with salt, pepper and dried dill (although I'm sure fresh would be excellent as well). Sautee til tender, about 5 minutes.
Squeeze some lemon over the top. Toss and serve...
Large sautee (or frying pan).....use pam spray or olive oil (olive oil works best) and throw some chopped garlic in (however much you like)......use baby spinach (come in convenient prewashed bags) and add to pan....stir constantly.....will shrink right down....add salt to taste....be sure to measure your raw amount of veggies before thay cook down!..
I saute some green beans in a pan with 1 tbsp of olive oil, a little chopped onion, minced garlic, sliced mushrooms. Really good!.
Fresh or frozen green beans (about 3 cups).
1/4 cup onion (i also add 1/4 cup green pepper).
1 1/2 tbs choped garlic (more or less as you like it).
1 cup chicken broth.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook onion (pepper) and garlic in a pam sprayed large frying/saute pan.
Add beans, broth, s &p until beans are crisp tender.
I usually refrigerate so the flavors can "get happy" and either re-heat or enjoy cold..
This makes a couple servings....measure out what you need...
Oriental Green Beans.
1 Tbsp. canola oil.
Few drops of sesame oil.
1 cloves garlic, minced.
1 tsp. fresh ginger root, minced.
1/4 tsp. dried red chile pepper flakes (or to taste).
8 oz. chopped fresh green beans.
1 tsp. soy sauce.
1 tsp. oyster sauce.
In a large pan or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic, ginger, and chile pepper. As the garlic and ginger begin to sweat, add beans, toss to mix, cover and reduce heat. Steam for 5-8 minutes. Add some water if necessary.
Remove cover, increase heat to high; add soy and oyster sauce and stir for two minutes more or until sauce thickens. Serve warm...
Actually, I'm pretty sure you want to measure it cooked if you're eating it cooked...
I enjoy roasted veggies very much. I slice up yellow squash, zucchini, bell peppers (green, red, orange and/or yellow), onions, and mushrooms (whole or halfed) and marinate in 2-3 tablespoons of balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing (I like Newman's lite version and you don't need much). I'll often do a large quantity enough for 2 or 3 meals. The longer they marinate the tastier they are. I've kept them marinating in the fridge for close to a week. It's nice to have them ready to roast.
It's perfect for a busy evening after work...
Since it's the tail end of summer, throw those veggies on the Grill! I don't like asparagus - unless it's grilled! Acutally, most veggies I can't stand in a raw/steamed/boiled/otherwise cooked state are somehow very very good when grilled. Fire = yum! Just throw them on and turn them occasionally. I personally like mine a bit "burnt" to give them a little extra crisp...
I just had 2 really good veggie dishes when visiting family:.
Grilled zucchini - slice top to bottom about 1/4" slices, mist with olive oil and sprinkle with season salt, then grill..
Cucumber salad - thinly slice cucumber and sprinkle with season salt in a bowl (you may have to layer in the bowl). the cucumber will sweat (give it about 30 minutes) and you want to keep all that juice in the bowl. toss in fresh dill. then take a big spoonful of mayo and stir together. the mayo will give a light coat but most will slide right off. I guess it was a weight watchers recipe, you could always use light mayo since I don't know how many calories you're actually getting from it...
We can't have mayo at all. Try nayonaise though...
Hi. Have one for ya..
I do a stir fry with zucchini, bean sprouts, celery, ginger root, mushrooms, cabbage, greenbeans and use the "orange chicken" receipe sauce for it. Big hit with the whole family. Now, I have to make extra!.
That orange sauce is awesome!!!..
