WEIGHT WATCHERS FOODIES: WHAT ARE YOU COOKING? PART 5

Continue your resolutions of delicious WW friendly food here!

skinytaste.com just posted a recipe for coconut brown rice - looks delicious. It'd be great as a bed of tofu or chicken and pineapple kabobs! Soy Vey teriyaki, some tofu/chicken, pineapple, and red onion. Might have to make that after my next shopping trip this coming weekend!

      +1..Thanks for the new thread, Jeserf:)

    2. Making Eggplant Lasagna from the new WW One Pot Cookbook. It was supposed to be Eggplant and Mushroom Lasagna but I had the mushrooms for too long and they smell funny :-(

        Eggplant lasagna sounds great, and I don't like mushrooms anyway:)

        1. re: sunflwrsdh

          If you can find them, try Japanese eggplant for that recipe--terrific (and less bitter than traditional eggplant can get). I grow the Japanese ones--already looking forward to spring planting.

      2. Hi! I'm a longtime lurker... so glad to be showing my "face" around here! This is probably an old WW trick but, I've been adding egg whites to my oatmeal in the morning - whisked until slightly foamy and added when the oats are just about cooked - and it lightens up the texture, adds protein and you can't taste them at all. I'm hooked...

          Do you find it keeps you full longer?

          1. re: mimilulu

            Welcome, mimlulu. Thank you for the tip. I may try that some morning. Still eating steel cut oats with a chopped apple,some cinnamon and nutmeg, and a little almond milk. Egg white would add more protein and 0 points, right?

            1. re: sunflwrsdh

              Thanks for the welcome! 1 egg white is 0 but 2 whites are 1 point. I use 2.

            2. I had a great gai lan (Chinese broccoli) dish for supper. Sauté about 2 tbsp minced ginger in 1 tsp oil until fragrant. Add bunch gai lan, 1 cup chicken broth, 1 tsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp oyster sauce to pan. Cook until broth is pretty much gone and gai lan is tender. I love Thai chilis, so I sprinkles some on mine. Had it with a nice piece of broiled salmon and some brown rice.

                that sounds wonderful CanadaGirl.. how many pts. do you think for the veg? 2-3, just for the oil and oyster sauce? so flavorful sounding....

                1. re: mariacarmen

                  I calculated 0 points. Oyster sauce is 0 points per tbsp and 1 tsp oil has 1 point, but this was enough veg to feed my family. I figure I ate about 1/4 of it, and that much oil is 0 points. Worst case scenario, you eat the while lot for 1 point :)

                2. re: CanadaGirl

                  CanadaGirl I just heart you. Wanted to pass that on, Didn't know you were a fellow WW-ite! :)

                3. Tonight we had a great supper. Braised chicken drumsticks and thighs ( which we got on sale for 49 cents a pound last week!) with kale. They were just braised with some chicken stock, garlic and chopped tomatoes, on top of a bed of kale. Delicious! And only 7 points. My husband skinned and de-fatted them, and we had them with his home made whole wheat bread. I'm taking the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
