Hungry Girl's Hot Couples (Two-Ingredient Recipes)
hot couple, noun
Definition of HOT COUPLE
An HG recipe that calls for just two ingredients. Frequently very simple to whip up. Guilt-free without exception.
We LOVE hot couples here at Hungryland. After reading the above definition, can you blame us? Here are five all-new hot couples that are perfect for snack time...
Salsa + Hard-Boiled Egg Whites = Salsa-fied Egg White Bites
Entire recipe: 59 calories, <0.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 297mg sodium, 2.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 1g sugars, 11g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
SmartPoints® value 1*
So simple, it's almost startling... Hard-boil 3 eggs, slice in half, and remove the yolks. (Click for tips.) Chill, if needed. Place 1 tsp. salsa in each half, and enjoy! HG tip: Boil a dozen eggs at once, and you'll have snacks for days...
Strawberry Yogurt + Peanut Butter Chips = Spoonable PB&J
Entire recipe: 175 calories, 2.5g total fat (1g sat fat), 81mg sodium, 25g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 21g sugars, 13g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*
SmartPoints® value 7*
Time for a sweet treat! First, chop 2 tsp. peanut butter baking chips (the flavor goes further with lots of smaller pieces). Then top a 5.3-oz. container of fat-free strawberry Greek yogurt with the chopped chips, and start spoonin'! The Greek yogurt gives this snack a protein punch...
Bacon + Asparagus = Bacon-Bundled Asparagus
1/2 of recipe (2 bacon-wrapped asparagus bundles): 101 calories, 5g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 324mg sodium, 7.5g carbs, 4g fiber, 3.5g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
SmartPoints® value 2*
Savory snack ahead... Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wrap a slice of turkey bacon tightly around 4 medium asparagus spears (of even thickness; tough ends removed), spiraling the bacon down the asparagus. Place on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray, and make 3 more bundles of bacon-wrapped asparagus. Bake until bacon is crispy and asparagus is slightly tender, about 18 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through. Mmmm!
Tuna + Cucumber Slices = Tuna Crunch Bites
Entire recipe: 110 calories, 2g total fat (0 - 0.5g sat fat), 368mg sodium, 5.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 2g sugars, 17g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
SmartPoints® value 1 - 2*
This crunchy, protein-packed snack is perfect for brown-bag lunches. Pack your ingredients separately, and assemble right before chewing. Just top 10 round cucumber slices with the contents of a 2.6-oz. pouch of StarKist Tuna Creations. Choose your favorite flavor of tuna... We're obsessed with the Sweet & Spicy!
Cole Slaw Mix + Seasoned Rice Vinegar = Sunomono Slaw
1/4th of recipe (about 1 cup): 35 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 390mg sodium, 8g carbs, 1g fiber, 6.5g sugars, 0.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
SmartPoints® value 1*
This one's impossibly easy and equally delicious. In a wide container, toss 4 cups of bagged cole slaw mix with 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Shake, serve, and enjoy! P.S. Check out its cucumber cousin...
