AM Apple Scramble!
(Entire recipe: 230 calories, 1.5g fat, 385mg sodium, 37g carbs, 5g fiber, 12g sugars, 17g protein = PointsPlus® value 6*)
A GIGANTIC and apple-tastic treat to brighten your day...
1 cup peeled and finely chopped apple (approx. 1 medium apple)
1 slice Wonder Light White Bread
1/2 cup Egg Beaters Original
3 tbsp. regular oats (not quick or instant)
1 oz. light vanilla soymilk
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 packets SPLENDA
Directions: Begin by stirring to combine all ingredients except for the bread and apple. Set aside. Toast bread well (but do not burn) and allow it to cool. Tear bread into pieces and place in a blender or food processor. Pulse bread until reduced to small pieces. Add mixture and chopped apple to blender or processor and pulse until mixed (NOT liquefied). In a pan sprayed with nonstick spray, cook mixture over medium heat. Prepare as you would scrambled eggs, constantly moving mixture around with a spatula. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, until solid crumbles form and brown slightly. Serves 1!
Oatstanding Veggie Patties!
(1 patty: 70 calories, 0.5g fat, 585mg sodium, 16g carbs, 5g fiber, 3g sugars, 4g protein = PointsPlus® value 2*)
These patties are sooooo good you can pop 'em straight -- or feel free to enjoy on some healthy bread, lettuce or cabbage "bun", or rolled in a high-fiber tortilla!
In a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency and set aside. Next, add 1/3 cup boiling water to oats and set those aside as well. In a large pot sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, cook vegetables for five minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove pot from heat and transfer veggies to a large bowl; allow to cool for several minutes (blot excess moisture with a paper towel). Stir in oatmeal, ground Fiber One, soy sauce, salt and Egg Beaters. Add pepper per your taste. Make sure mixture is well blended. One by one, form mixture into 5 balls and flatten into patties. Allow patties to cool and set in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Cook patties on a skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat for about 3 - 4 minutes per side (flip 'em gently so they keep their shape). Load em up with your favorite burger condiments like pickles, ketchup, light cheese and zesty mustard! Serves 5.
Creamy Coconut Shrimp with Crisp Veggies
(1/2 recipe: 235 calories, 3g fat, 550mg sodium, 23g carbs, 10g fiber, 4g sugars, 30g protein = PointsPlus® value 5*)
This shrimptastic dish tastes even better when you pour it over Tofu Shirataki noodles....mmmmmm!
Begin by stirring to combine Almond Breeze (or soymilk), Torani Syrup, cornstarch, soy sauce, and (if desired) red pepper flakes in a medium-sized saucepan. Set stove to low heat and cook until mixture reaches a frothy boil. Stir and continue to heat for 2 - 3 minutes. Turn off stove, but leave sauce in the pan to thicken. Wash and cut green beans and place in a microwave-safe dish with 1/3 cup of water. Cover veggies with a lid or plastic wrap, and heat in microwave for 5 - 10 minutes (depending on how crisp you like em). Drain liquid and set aside. Next, add shrimp to the sauce in the saucepan and cook at medium heat. Cook until shrimp are pink on the outside and opaque throughout (about 3 - 5 minutes; time will vary based on shrimp size). Top steamed green beans with shrimp and sauce. Sauce will thicken as it cools. Serves 2!
