Chinese Chicken/Celery Stir-fry

100 grams (3 oz) chicken breast, finely chopped

4 large stalks celery, finely chopped

1 tsp onion salt

½ tsp garlic salt

1/4 cup water or broth

1 T Bragg’s Liquid Amino Flavoring

1/8 tsp coriander

1/8 tsp ground ginger

1/8 tsp ground cloves

Stevia to taste (optional)

Place all but chicken in large skillet and cover to cook celery. When celery is partially cooked, add previously cooked chicken breast (add chicken in first step if raw). Cook long enough to allow

chicken to soak up seasonings.

Serve hot or cold. (Experiment with finely chopped shrimp!)

*This is one serving meat and one serving vegetable.

 

Curry Cabbage with Beef

100 grams ( 3 oz) of lean ground beef

1/4 to 1/3 head of cabbage (depending on size), shredded

1/16 tsp coriander

1/8 tsp curry

1/16 tsp ground ginger

Stevia and other seasonings to taste (like Bragg’s Liquid Amino Flavoring)

Cook beef in a deep skillet with a small amount of malt vinegar (or water), garlic, salt, and pepper. When beef is browned, add cabbage and rest of seasonings.

Add 1/8 C water and cover skillet. Simmer until cabbage is cooked and flavors have melded.

• This is one serving meat and one serving vegetable.

 

Strawberry Omelet Crepe

3 eggs

Vanilla flavored Stevia

1 serving of strawberries (chop until fine, but not runny!)

Mix egg whites to stiff peak, add 1 yolk, and vanilla flavored Stevia; blend again to stiff peak. Smooth the whipped egg into a dry nonstick skillet; sprinkle strawberries evenly over the surface.

Cover with a dome lid and cook on medium heat. Crepe will rise under the lid and then collapse after a few minutes. When the crepe has fallen, remove from heat, but leave covered to build up

condensation—this will help release the omelet from the pan. Use a spatula to gently roll the crepe into a large burrito.

Serve hot or cold
