I just started the south beach diet and the website doesn't have too many vegetarian recipes. If anyone else does/did south beach I would love to hear your favorite recipes. I make a pretty yummy pastaless lasagna...
2 1/2 cups of zucchini (about 2.5 zucchinis)
1/2 bag of boca meatless crumbles
1/4 cup of onions chopped/diced
2 small tomatoes, cut up
1 (6oz) can of tomato paste
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 egg white
3/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
1/4 cup of mozerella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup of kraft free chedar cheese, shredded
Cook (or boil) zucchini until tender (about 8-10 minutes). Drain. Set aside.
Heat the 'meat' over a skillet with onions untill onions are tender and the meat is warm. Add tomatos, tomato paste, garlic, and remaining spices. Let simmer for a few minutes while you prepare the cheese stuff.
In a small separate bowl, add egg white and slightly beat. Add cottage cheese and half of the shredded cheeses.
Okay, now this is a small recipe so I used a small 1 1/2-qt. baking/roasting pan. You'll be in trouble if you try to pull out the big fancy glass dish. Anyway, arrange the zucchini first. My recipe cameout really watery, so dab the zucchini dry with paper towels before layering. Add 'meat' mixture and distribute evenly. Add cheese mixture, and then remaining 'meat' and zucchini.
Bake uncovered at 375F for about 30 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake 10 minutes longer. Let it cool off for 10 minutes longer and then BAM. Dinner.
NOTES: you may also substitute zucchini with eggplant. As for the cheese, I used lots of cottage, and a little parmesean on the top.
Now post yours!!!!
