Your Quiche Lorraine Frittata looks wonderful. I think we will be having that this weekend for breakfast! My husband has noticed he feels so much better eating LC. So has really been interested in eating "My" food. I know he will Love this one too. I noticed your post on the other LC recipe board we are on about Soy Flour. I use to make a muffin many months ago that used soy flour and it added Banana flavoring to help cover the flavor of the soy. But for the life of me I cannot find the recipe. I really do not like to use soy because of it's high estrogen content. I do use Silk milk in my coffee, the one in the green carton I think it's called Organic is the lowest in carbs. I am going through "the Change" and I really don't like to do anything that is gonna upset anymore that balance. I will keep looking however for that recipe. I was kinda good with a cuppa.
Sesame Seeds, Sunflower seeds, Peanuts, and/or Almonds
Water or homemade almond milk (with acceptable sweetener, if desired) or 1% milk
Put sesame seeds in bowl. Add desired seeds/nuts until mixture resembles granola (optional). Sprinkle on the spices and stevia. Put just enough liquid on it to moisten. If trying to keep low carb with 1% milk, add no more than 1/4 cup.
Homemade almond milk:
1 cup almonds (may substitute other nuts or seeds as desired)
4 cups water
stevia or splenda to taste
Blend in blender until smooth. Filter, then pour over your fake oatmeal or granola or use in recipes instead of milk. Almonds are a good source of calcium, and so are sesame seeds. I buy sesame seeds at my local Asian food store. They're cheap that way.
1/2 cup nonfat or 1% milk
1/2 cup ice (optional)
To flavor, your choice of:
1 tbsp. carob or cocoa powder
1 packet stevia, spenda, or other acceptable sweetener
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup berries or chopped orange pieces
2 tbsp. old fashioned peanut butter (has no sugar or hydrogenated oils, stir before using, refrigerate to prevent seperation)
2 tbsp. wheat germ
2tbsp. bran (for fiber)
anything else low GI to flavor it
Directions: All flavorings are totally optional. Put everything in a blender. Serves 1. If you don't like the idea of eating raw eggs, adding 1 tbsp. lemon juice will "cook" them.
butter or oil for frying
3 large eggs
1 tbsp milk
sausage, bacon, green onions, diced bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, ham slices, etc. for toppings (make sure your meat is precooked)
Heat the butter or oil in a frying pan. Beat the eggs with milk in a bowl. Carefully slide the eggs into the oil. Cook the eggs on each side until just set. (You're making an omelet for a crust). Put omelet flat on a plate. Spoon some tomato sauce to cover the omelet. Put desired toppings on the sauce. Top with cheese. Microwave for about 30 seconds or until cheese melts. Serves 1.
The father of my oldest son taught me how to do this. Caution: these are spicy!
Puerto Rican Scrambled Eggs
1 package linguica (that's spicy puerto rican sausage)
1 yellow onion, chopped fine
splash of milk
you may add veggies to tone down the spiciness if you wish.
Mix the eggs, milk, and onions in a bowl (and other veggies if you're using them). In a dry frying pan, stirring constantly, cook the sausage until well done (the oil will separate from the meat, but don't drain it). Carefully pour the egg mixture into the sausage. Scramble everything together until the eggs are cooked. Serve hot. Serves 2-3. Note: you may substitute other kinds of sausage if you can't find the linguica or if you don't like your sausage spicy.
