Your question was: Any Healthy Dutch Oven Recipes for Nutrisystem?.
Hi Fred-you beat me to it(haha) I was going to post the same ques. good thing I look ahead Let's hope we get some ideas. Smores would be yummy!!!..
Hhhmmm smores, got me thinking -.
Choco bar from dessert.
Coupla mini marshmallows (20 cal worth from 1 daily add in).
Where does the substitute for graham crackers come from?.
You might want to post this to a Dietician or check under the recipes thread too.....
Great threadwe love to Dutch Oven cook but it is too hot where we are right now to enjoywe travel full time in our RV so we get lots of opportunitites to DO cookhowever, since I have been on Nutrisystem I haven't had any interest. I thought about this onehow about a Nutrisystem version of Low Country Boil?.
My normal recipe is this:.
Low Country Boil.
Crab boil-1 package.
12 red new potatoes.
6 (4-inch) smoked sausage link sausage.
6 ears corn.
3 pounds fresh shrimp, unpeeled.
Fill a large pot with enough water to cover all of the ingredients. Add the crab boil and bring to a boil. Adjust the crab boil to suit your taste. When the water boils, add the potatoes and sausage. Cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. Add corn and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Drain and serve with warm bread..
You could use turkey sausage and include the corn and potatoes or notif someone else wanted them. You could add fresh veggies like big chunks of squash, onion, cabbage or whatever you wanted. You could also put in some chicken. The crab boil is what gives it such a good taste and the shrimp is awesome. I may have to try this! I'm looking forward to other recipes...
Awesome Debbie, thanks!!.
Hmmm smores... can't you get low fat graham crackers?..
To make the Low Country Boil "safer"<G>, I would.
Substitute the sausage with a chicken sausage - haven't seen turkey sausage, but I bet it has the same stats..
Eat only one of the red potatoes..
Unless you get an extra carb, eliminate the corn (that is so hard in the summer when it is sooo good)..
Use cabbage, cut in wedges, onions, maybe some fresh green beans, carrots, zuchini squash - all in large chunks..
I would also eat the shrimp - a little more protein never hurts<G>..
Good recipe, Debbie!.
Now, who has found low-fat, less than 20 calorie graham crackers for the smores?.
And the black mini poodles..
You can use nuti-chocholates. place a toasted marshmallow between two pieces..
How about this, but you'd have to give up your lunch bar. Yes I'm thinking use the fudge graham bar from lunch with the mini marshmallows. Just eat a big salad for lunch with unlimited veggies. Hey it could work...
I make mine with ground turkey.
Three chopped bell peppers (any color).
One chopped onion.
Three cloves chopped or pressed garlic.
Three cans chopped tomatoes.
One can tomato paste.
One can water.
Season to taste (for me that's three tbsps chili powder, some cumin, some canned chili peppers).
Cook until meat is done and flavors are melded..
Add one can drained corn.
Add one can partially drained black beans.
Heat and eat...
This is something we make whenever we are out camping:.
2 jars/cans sauerkraut (if you are backpacking, use packets, less weight!).
5 turkey or chicken sausage links (I've used freeze-dried sausage but not when doing NS, so I don't know if you can get healthy freeze-dried or not).
1 head cauliflower, broken into florets.
5 small red potatoes, cut up.
2 ribs celery, cut up.
2 onions, sliced.
2 chicken boullion cubes (or 2 cups broth if you are not backpacking).
2 tsps. oil in bottom of oven, when hot add onion, celery and sausage. When it is sizzling, add other ingredients and water until it makes a thick stew (1-2 cups). Cover, move to slightly less red coals, leave for a couple of hours. Grating fresh peppercorns on it is divine! Add as much salt as you prefer..
This recipe serves five people. Just add or remove the sausage and potatoes for the number of people you are serving..
Also, we only added the cauliflower this summer because of the weight loss needed by a couple of us. It used to be very heavy on potatoes, twice as many and no cauliflower. We also used to rub bacon rind on the bottom of the oven instead of using vegetable oil. For obvious reasons, we don't do that anymore...
I had the fudge graham bar for lunch today and yes yes yes - your're right - it would be perfect for s'mores! mmmmmm..
I like the fudge graham bar idea for a smores replacement..
Doesn't anyone like the sauerkraut bake? It really is good!..
