Sorry, I’ve not been posting! I have been dieting and I’ve lost weight but I’ve not been very good about making notes although I am calorie counting.
The current issue is: There’s two head of cauliflower in the garden! I could cook them up into a soup, but nice cauliflower soup needs lots of cream and parmesan (or is that just me?). I quite like it raw which seems like that would be the best bet for a low cal meal, but I’d love to have it with a dip. It’s a lot of cauliflower to get through on its own.
So I was thinking about spinach dip and wondering if I could make a version of it that was low enough calorie that it wouldn’t undo all the good that I’ve been doing.
We don’t have a good variety of low-fat items locally (no light sour cream and I don’t think there’s light mayo) but the shop in the village has recently started stocking low fat philadelphia cream cheese. So I am trying to modify an onion and spinach dip to suit. Clearly I can’t fry the onion but I thought maybe I could microwave or steam them to make them taste more mild? And then just make sure it has lots of spinach (cooked and leaving it wet to keep the dip from getting too thick) and some salt and pepper and maybe a dash of Worcestershire sauce?
What do you guys think?
|Spinach Dip||100g Light Cream Cheese||60|
|100g raw onion||40|
|50g green onion||16|
That should make for two or maybe even three servings, shouldn’t it?
I don’t really want to take the time and then find it’s a total disaster.
