FAT FREE RECIPES

A freind of mine is suffering from Gall tones and is unable to tollerate any fat at all in his diet.

Has anyone got any ' tried and tested recipes ' that you know are good , tasty and simple to cook.
He and his wife are both very busy people .

They cook on an AGA and they also have a microwave cooker...just adding this as it might be helpfull as the AGA has a very slow cook oven as well as a full heat oven.

Thankyou. thumbsup

Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

Completely fat free? Just wondering, as some vitamins/nutrients need fat to be absorbed by the body and it seems that zero fat is almost impossible to achieve... In any case it does not sound like much fun.
Can't think of anything but raw or steamed vegetables and fruit...

Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

No fun at all for him as he gets terrific pain if he has even the tiniest bit of fat.

He has been eating fruit, steamed fish and vegetables.
Also cous-cous and plain baked potato.

My friend was quite excited with kimbers recipe and as she had all the ingredients in the house was planning to cook it tonight.

Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

I knew someone like that.

Spices may help add some flavour.

How did the recipe turn out?  It was just fate that it arrived in my inbox that morning! big_smile   I have been meaning to try it but have children home with fevers all week so have not made it to the grocers yet - hopefully this afternoon.  Everyone is feeling better and is back at school. clap

I hope your friend enjoyed it.  If I find any other recipes I'll pass them on.  The other things they could try - subbing fat free items for regular {sour cream, cream cheese, milk etc}.  When baking muffins I cut half the fat by subbing applesauce for half the oil or butter.  The texture may be slightly different but if it helps wink

Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

sorry to ask but how is that recipe fat free when it uses 4 tbsp of butter?

I know it is hard to find completely fat free recipes ( hence the internet searches) but i have a friend who is coming to visit and has Pancreatitis  so she cannot have any fat at all!!! anything snazzy and fat free out there??

Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

A poached vegetable and chicken soup would be nice, if not snazzy, I did one for a friend with similar health issues totally fat-free, used some Asian flavors, just poach in the order needed to just cook the vegetables and boneless chicken breast.

Greek Yogurt Dip
Non-fat Greek yogurt
Fresh Lemon juice, garlic, chopped cilantro leaves, mint, scallions (to taste), s&p
Combine and let the flavors meld, serve with raw vegetables or use as a sauce over fish or chicken.

you could also make tandoori style chicken breast with non-fat yogurt and tandoori spices or paste, grill it on a non-stick grill indoors to avoid using oil.

sorry to edit:  what about a japanese style meal, miso soup with tofu, sticky rice, grilled fish, daikon radish.  I guess you should avoid the oily fishes.

Also, I've used non-fat evaporated milk instead of cream in recipes, it's a pure, quality product, nice combined with non-fat chicken stock as a sauce.
