Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

This is a really delicious recipe from Clare MacDonald's Seasonal Cookery:

1 medium or 2 small leeks per person, finely cut
1 portion firm white fish per person
1/4 inch root ginger per person, peeled and grated
freshly ground black pepper

Place half the leeks in the bottom of a steamer, place the fish on top, sprinkle on the ginger and black pepper, then cover with the rest of the leeks.  Steam for 10 mins until the fish is cooked.  Delicious served with rice (and you can steam this over the rice).

Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

How about grilled vegetable sandwiches (peppers,portabello mushrooms, courgette(zucchni), baby vine tomatoes, garlic,drizzled with some balsamico and sprinkled with fresh basil leaves...served in ciabatta or french bread...you can prepare the vegetables then keep them in the fridge for quick sandwiches

or

fat free hummus (using non fat yoghurt instead of oil) served with pitta breads and a nice salad

or

chicken breast fillets cooked in a tomato sauce with onion, black olives,garlic, oregano and capers ....or use fish fillets, cooked the same way...serve with rice or couscous

or

potato salad with honey and mustard dressing (mix equal quantities of honey and mustard and mix with some fat free yoghurt and add a bit of balsamico if you like), add to potatoes with some sliced spring onions and chopped red peppers (roasted peppers taste even better)...would go well with grilled chicken.

or

risotto style dishes (without the butter),with vegetables or seafood added (peas, artichokes, prawns etc)

He really should be seeing a doctor as the gall will most likely need to be removed if the pain is that bad.

Mummza, is it a case of your friend being on a waiting list to have medical treatment?

Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

Anyone found anything else in the fat free line? My husband has recently been diagnosed with Bilial Dyskensia, which affects the link between the gall bladder and intestine and will need to be on "fat free" for the rest of his life.
Need some ideas for snacks as he's lost a lot weight and we need to start trying to bulk him up again, thanks in advance

Re: FAT FREE RECIPES

Youcan try this recipe.... It's Low fat
Low-fat wild mushroom strudel:

Ingredients:

For the cold herb sauce

125 ml bio low-fat plain yogurt
4 tbsp mixed herbs, chives, dill and chervil
0.5 tsp coarse grain mustard
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 pinches black pepper

For the filling

1 tbsp sunflower oil
500 g wild mushrooms, cultivated and roughly chopped
1 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp thyme, chopped

For the pastry

4 large sheets filo pastry
6 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil



Method

1. Set the oven to 200C/gas 6. 2. Mix all the ingredients for the herb sauce in a bowl and chill until needed to allow the flavours to develop. 3. Heat the sunflower oil in a large frying pan over a high flame and add the mushrooms and salt. 4. Fry the mushrooms briskly for 10 minutes, moving them around frequently, until they are soft and golden and the liquid has evaporated entirely. 5. Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic, thyme and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Cook for two minutes, until the garlic is soft and fragrant, and then remove from the heat. 6. Cool the mixture for a few minutes, then place in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. 7. Lay one sheet of filo pastry out on a clean, dry surface. Keep the remaining pastry well wrapped or covered with a slightly damp cloth to prevent it going dry and brittle. 8. Spray the olive oil lightly all over the pastry, then sprinkle about two tablespoons of the breadcrumbs evenly over the surface. 9. Add another layer of filo, and repeat with the oil and breadcrumbs until you finish with a layer of pastry. 10. Spray it again and then spread the mushroom mixture across one half of the width of the filo (not lengthwise), leaving a two centimetre border around the outside. 11. Fold over the long sides just to enclose the filling, then, starting with the filled end, roll up the pastry tightly. 12. Lay seam-side down on a baking sheet. Spray all over once more with oil. 13. Using a very sharp knife cut several diagonal slashes halfway through the pastry. 14. Bake the strudel for about 20 minutes, until golden and crisp.15. Slice into portions and serve with cold herb sauce.
