I’ve been craving pizza – so I decided to make a healthier option 🙂 Lovely tomato, cheese garlic and herb goodness – the ‘legal’ way 😉
3 large ‘braai’/brown mushrooms
100g tomato and onion mix/Weigh-Less Chili Tomato Pasta Sauce (I added a bit of garlic and herb paste to jazz it up a bit)
30g cheddar cheese – grated finely, it goes further!
1.5 slice Albany Ultima, grated to make breadcrumbs
10g olives, deseeded and finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
A sprinkling of Mixed Herbs
Remove the stems of the mushrooms
Place the mushrooms on a baking sheet, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray
Stuff mushrooms with tomato mix (tomato base, herbs, breadcrumbs, olives and seasoning mixed together)
Top with cheese and sprinkle with Mixed Herbs
Pop into a pre-heated oven and 180C for about 20 minutes.
Serves 1 – 1 Veg (mushrooms = free), 1 Fat, 1 Protein, 1 CC
This was yesterday’s lunch! I’m sure you figured out that pearl barley is my newest obsession! 😉 I cooked a large batch a few days ago and froze it into portions – specifically to have it on hand to ‘experiment’ with. That is my challenge for the week – to make 3 x brand new barley recipes! Maybe you can try it – find a healthy ingredient that you don’t use THAT often, and see if you can get a few recipe ideas of how to cook/prepare it?
100g cooked barley
25g sliced red onion
50g cherry tomatoes, halved
150g chopped red, yellow and green pepper
30g low fat feta
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parley
8 pitted olives
Dressing: 25ml lemon juice & 25ml red wine vinegar
Mix all the ingredients together and serve!
Serves 1 – 2CC, 1 Protein, 1 Fat, 2.5 Veg
