    Here are some of my favorite recipes (and I cook a lot!) (there may be more than 5 here!)


    Greek Lentil Soup
    1 1/2 cups dried red lentils
    2 cups onion, diced
    1 TBSP garlic, minced
    1 TBSP fresh oregano, minced
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    6 cups vegetable broth
    1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes (or 2 cups fresh, seeded, diced & chopped)
    4 cups fresh spinach, rinsed and drained, and CHOPPED
    salt and pepper to taste

    Soak lentils in 8 cups boiling water in large bowl. Cover and let stand 20 minutes, then drain and set aside.

    Spray large pot with Pam and saute onion and garlic over medium-high heat until soft, approx. 4-5 minutes. Add oregano and bay leaf; cook 1 minute.

    Deglaze pan with 1/4 cup lemon juice and reduce until nearly evaporated. Add broth and tomatoes, bring to boil, reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes. Remove bay leaf.

    Stir in lentils and simmer until lentils are soft but not mushy, about 10 minutes. Add spinach and cook 1 minute to wilt; season with salt and pepper.

    Makes about 7 cups.

    Stuffed Cabbage Casserole (*****)
    NOTE: Grandma and I LOVED this recipe. I'll be making this again and it was soooo easy!).

    1 pound of 96% ff ground sirloin
    1/2 cup instant brown rice
    1 can of tomato soup
    1/4 cup of water
    4 cups of cabbage or cole slaw mix (there are 4 cups in one bag of cole slaw mix)
    1 large onion chopped
    1 clove of garlic minced
    salt and pepper


    preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

    Brown the sirlion. Drain. Mix everything else into the sirloin. Pour into an ungreased casserole dish and cover. Bake for 45-60 minutes.

    -----------------------------
    Chicken and Broccoli with Penne

    Chicken and Broccoli with Penne (I put in my modifications below. *****)

    2 lb of boneless skinless chicken breast cut into strips
    1 bag of broccoli (cut up broccoli florets that you microwave in bag)
    1/3 - 1/2 box whole wheat pasta (depending on how much pasta you want to eat)
    Minced garlic - add as much as you like.
    A little bit of chicken broth (about 1/4 cup or less)
    Olive oil

    Cook pasta in a large pot as directed on box. While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and garlic in another skillet for about one minute. Add chicken and cook until browned then combine with cooked broccoli, cook for another couple of minutes. Add a little chicken broth to get the garlic off the bottom of the pan and to give it a nice flavor. I only added about 1/4 cup or less. Drain pasta and add a bit of olive oil (about 2 teaspoons). Add chicken and broccoli to pasta and stir.

    I usually top with fat free mozzarella (or use veggie shreds) for a delicious Core dinner. I make this a LOT for lunch and scale down the portions.


    -----------------------------
    Pumpkin Cookies

    These ROCK. The original recipe says for 1 cup of sugar but you really only need 1/2 that so I made the modifications below:

    Pumpkin Cookies (and they are almost core w/ the exception of the brown sugar splenda!! Of course they are only core if eaten in moderation!). (*****)
    1/4c splenda brown sugar and 1/4c reg splenda
    1 egg
    1c unsweetened applesauce
    1tsp vanilla
    2 c oat bran (I used 2 c. fast cooking oatmeal)
    1tsp baking soda
    1tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    1tsp ground cinnoman
    1/4tsp nutmeg
    1c pumpkin

    Preheat oven to 350, mix all together and spoon onto sprayed pan, bake 10-15min, cookies are not hard, they are moist, soft cookies. YUM!!! The original recipe spreads as they bake but this one does not but they are great!-----------------------------



    Briana's Teriyaki Burgers (This was modified by myself. Joe gave it 5 stars) (*****)

    INGREDIENTS: (Serves 4)
    1 pound ground beef (use extra-lean for less
    fat)
    2 tablespoons soy sauceŚlow sodium
    A little bit of salt and liberal grinding of pepper
    1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/4 cup quick cooking oats
    1 egg
    Worchestershire sauce

    COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: Pre-heat oven or grill. Mix meat, soy sauce, salt, pepper, ginger, oats and egg. Shape ground beef into 4 nice-sized patties,
    each about 1/2 inch thick. Splash worchestershire sauce on each patty. Grill patties until desired doneness.

    NUTRITION per serving: 220 Calories; 14g Total Fat; Trace Dietary Fiber;

    -----------------------------This was the BOMB. I couldn't believe how good this was:

    Core Stuffing
    1 cup barley, cooked
    1 coup couscous, cooked
    .5 cup mushrooms, sliced
    .5 cup onion, sliced
    .5 cup celery, sliced
    .25 cup carrots, finely minced
    1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
    .5 teaspoon rubbed sage
    salt & pepper

    Cook the barley and couscous per package directions but using FF
    chicken broth instead of water. Set aside to cool. Spray a hot
    nonstick skillet lightly with nonstick spray and add mushrooms. When
    mushrooms begin to release water, add all remaining ingredients and
    saute just until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms have
    started to brown. Pour this into the grain mixture and blend. Let cool
    enough to handle and stuff into the bird to bake or roast. -- I baked
    mine outside the bird and it was wonderful.

    Instead of cooking this with the bird, we put this in the oven at 400
    for 30 minutes and it cooked down really nicely.

    Polenta Primavera
    Fry a sliced tube of polenta in olive oil, place in a 9X13 pan. Saute onions/garlic/bell pepper/carrots/zucchini/mushrooms, layer on top. Dump a jar of spaghetti sauce (or the homemade Core equivalent) over the veggies. Sprinkle soy mozzarrella on top of that and bake 30 min @ 350.

    Originally from a LF Mexican cookbook I have. I put this over beans or count points for the tortillas

    Turkey Picadillo Tacos - 3 pts ea
    This complex picadillo of sweet, savory, and picante flavors is absolutely marvelous. In addition to these tacos, try it as a filling for chiles rellenos or for enchiladas with a tomato sauce.

    29 oz can tomatoes
    1 med onion, finely chopped
    2 lg garlic cloves, minced or pressed
    1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
    1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1/4 c raisins
    4 tsp rice wine vinegar or cider vinegar
    salt to taste, 1/2 to 1 tsp
    1 tart apple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped
    12 (half point) tortillas, heated
    1 cup salsa (Chipotle works well)

    Transfer tomatoes and their juice to a blender. Puree until smooth.

    Spray skillet with Pam. Add onion, and sautee until tender, about 5 min. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for about a min, until it just begins to color. Add the ground turkey. Stir and cook until lightly browned, about 5 to 8 min. Pour off any liquid from the pan.

    Add the tomato puree, ground spices, raisins, vinegar, and salt and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 20 min, stirring often, then stir in the apple. Continue to simmer for to min or until the tomatoes have cooked down and the mixture is thick and somewhat homogenous. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Remove from the heat.

    Place 2 heated tortillas on each plate, top with the turkey picadillo, fold over if you wish, and serve with the salsa (I don't think it needs the salsa, but YMMV).

    I made the mistake of making the cabbage casserole with gr. turkey. It's very bland and I'm going to doctor it up tomorrow. Lol, this is just a PSA.

    I'll probably make this again next week but I'm definately using the ground sirloin!!!

    Here's the real "Polenta Primavera" recipe by Penny. I like a lot more sauce than the recipe indicates, but YMMV.

    I use the ground turkey often. It's true; it can be more bland. I just use tabasco on top! Or Vietnamese hot sauce. Or cayenne pepper in the mix.

    Also, you can "brown" your turkey with beef bouillon (I like Better Than Bouillon paste) which gives it more flavor/color to begin with~

    I had the casserole for breakfast this morning and liked it much better. I cracked a ton of black pepper on it and it tasted like Runza filling. I do believe I'll add a bit more tomato soup to mix in and it will be just fine for me.

    Oooohh, I'm getting hungry just reading these! Here are my favs...

    Chicken, Spinach & Mushroom Crepes


    6-8 cornmeal crepes (recipe below)
    1 c cooked, shredded chicken breast
    1 onion, diced
    1/2 bell pepper, diced
    1 jalapeno, diced
    2 tbsp chopped garlic
    1 cup sliced mushroom
    10 oz pkg frozen spinach
    1/2 c ff milk
    2 tsp cornstarch (0 points for recipe)
    2 slices jalapeno soy cheese (or use other core cheese)
    salt, pepper to taste

    Remove spinach from package & set to boil in a pot of water. Boil for 5-6 minutes. Heat a large skillet with Pam or use core allotment of healthy oil. Saute onion, garlic, jalapeno & bell pepper for several minutes. Add mushroom & continue to brown. Combine 2 tsp cornstarch with cold ff milk & set aside. Once onions are clear, add drained spinach & chicken and heat through. Pour in milk mixture & add cheese torn into strips. Add salt & red pepper to taste, stir well & remove from heat.

    Divide mixture & spoon into center of crepes & fold sides over. Can serve as is or sprinkle with additional cheese & put under broiler until cheese melts.

    Cornmeal Crepes

    1 c cornmeal
    2 tsp splenda
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 c ff milk
    1/2 c water
    2 tsp ff sour cream
    2 eggs

    Combine cornmeal, splenda & salt in a bowl. Beat together eggs & ff sour cream. Add to water & milk & then pour into cornmeal. Stir well. Heat an 8-in nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray with Pam. Pour 1/4 c of mixture into pan & gently tilt in all directions so batter thinly covers bottom & very slightly up the sides of the pan. Once the edges start to brown (about 1 minute), lift carefully to see if it's ready to flip. Turn crepe over and cook for roughly 30 seconds until done.

    Repeat procedure with the remaining batter, stirring batter each time. Stack them between layers of wax paper or paper towel to prevent sticking. *I rinsed, wiped down & resprayed the pan with Pam between EACH one.

    This makes between 11-13 crepes. They can also be made ahead of time & freeze or refrigerate for later use.

    Crepes are great alone, or stuffed with just about anything.They also make great breakfast burritos!


    Banana Cream Pie Shake (or ice cream)

    1 c sliced frozen bananas
    1 1/2 tsp sf/ff vanilla pudding mix
    1 c skim or ff plain yogurt
    splenda to taste (if using skim vs yogurt, you probably won't need any)

    Blend well. Can adjust amount of liquid to desired consistency.

    Delicious topped with ff reddiwhip and/or a few crushed teddy grahams for minimal points.


    Cauliflower Poppers


    4 c cauliflower, cut into grape-sized pieces
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp chili powder
    salt, pepper & garlic powder, to taste
    cooking spray

    Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Place cauliflower in a bowl, spray with cooking spray (or use Core allotment of healthy oil) & add seasonings. Toss well to coat. Spread out on a flat baking pan lined with foil (easy cleanup) and sprayed with cooking spray. Bake until cauliflower is crisp-tender, for about 10 minutes, stirring halfway through.

    Faim's Three Bean Chili w/ extra veggies

    2 lbs lean ground beef (93% or better)
    large onion, chopped
    large bell pepper, chopped
    large jalapeno, chopped
    1/3 cup garlic, chopped
    large zucchini, peeled & chopped fine
    large yellow squash, peeled & chopped fine
    1 cup baby carrots, chopped fine
    1 can kidney beans
    1 can pinto beans
    1 can black beans
    1 can crushed tomatoes (regular or Italian)
    1 can tomato paste (small can)
    chili powder, to taste (I use Mexene)
    salt & red pepper, to taste

    Season ground beef w/ salt & pepper. Brown over medium heat with either Pam spray or canola oil (adjust for Core allotment). After about 10 minutes, add all chopped veggies (onions through carrots) & continue to brown. Add very little water if needed, but continue to brown meat & veggies until onions are clear. Add the remainder of ingredients (don't drain beans) along with several cups of water. I never measure the chili powder - just add as much as you like. I like a strong chili taste. Cook over a low-medium heat for about an hour. Add water as needed, just get it to your desired consistency once it's cooked. I like it thick & hearty.

    This chili is a fantastic way to sneak in a ton of extra veggies. It also freezes fabulously! I also like to add ff mozzarella, raw onion & picked jalapeno slices to my bowl when served.

    SueC - you have made this before? Is it soupy to you? I made this and I had to add another 1/2 cup of barley and about 1/2 cup of long grain rice (and then it was like chili). Only 1/2 cup of barley for almost 4 cups of liquid was soupy to me and would like to know your thoughts!

    1 or 2 cans beans, optional


    In 4-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, cook onion and garlic in oil until onion is tender. Add remaining ingredients, except chicken. Use the tomato juice and chop the tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Simmer 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cooked chicken; continue simmering 5 to 10 minutes or until chicken is heated through and barley is tender. Add additional water or chicken broth if chili becomes too thick upon standing.


    Makes nine 1-cup servings.

    This was a pre-Core recipe (on Flex). The sweetener would work out to about 1.5 tsp. per serving, unless you used a Core sweetener (like fructose ).

    And, of course, dried fruit isn't Core. You could count the points, or try it without...

    If you use the "search" function for this recipe you can see the nutritional information and points information on variations.

    And I have posted several baked oatmeal recipes that are completely CORE.
    May you be happy. May you be well. May you be free from suffering.

    I'm a relatively new corbie (2 weeks). Here are the recipes my husband and I love and will eat again.

    1. Core Pancakes from WW online

    Core Oatmeal Pancakes

    1/4 cup oatmeal
    1/4 cup cornmeal
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. baking soda
    4 packets splenda
    1/2 cup ff plain yogurt
    1 egg white

    Makes 2 big pancakes. Flip quickly because they cook fast.


    2. Shrimp Fried Rice
    1 cup regular egg substitute
    2 tsp canola oil
    3 medium scallion(s), chopped
    1 cup frozen peas and carrots, thawed
    4 oz frozen salad-size shrimp, thawed under cold water
    2 cup quick cooking brown rice, cooked
    4 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
    Instructions

    Coat a wok or large skillet with cooking spray and heat until an added drop of water sizzles.


    Scramble egg substitute in wok. Remove when cooked and set aside.


    Add oil, scallions, peas and carrots and shrimp to the wok. Stir-fry for five minutes.


    Add cooked rice, eggs and soy sauce. Stir-fry for about three minutes. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per person.

    Baked Apple and Pear Chips (ww online)

    2sprays cooking spray
    2 medium pears, Bosc, halved, cored
    2 medium red apples, Gala, Red Delicious or Granny Smith, halved, cored
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    2 Tbsp SPLENDA

    Preheat oven to 325F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.

    slice pears and apples into 1/8 inch thick slices.

    In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and SPLENDA. Place fruit slices in a single layer on baking sheets and sprinkle with cinnamon mixture. Bake, rotating baking sheets halfway through, until crisp and lightly browned, about 30-45 minutes.

    I pulled this thread up for all the new people but also to get some old core ideas back in my brain. I have to tell you these are two more I have been making alot.

    http://www.healthdiscovery.net/forum...ht=sloppy+joes Core Sloppy Joes, these are my teenage sons' favorite meal now. Great easy meal if you have kids. I buy the 1 pt hamburger rolls.

    Sorry I have yet to figure out how to rename a thread when I copy and paste it.

    Thank you!!!! for this thread!!! I copied and printed all the recipes that I wanted to try and have started a Core Cookbook at home.
    So far we've had Lentil Soup, Baked Oatmeal, Egg Nog Custard Cups, Great Core-n Bread (I gave the recipe to everyone at work), and Stuffed Cabbage Casserole (WOW!!!!). This was such a huge help as a new Core convert.
