Cauliflower fried rice Simply Filling

This was just a quick throw together side dish that turned out delish :) Sorry no specific amounts I just put together at the last minute.

Cauliflower fried rice Simply Filling

Cauliflower crumbles which I had in the freezer and just used today from frozen
Finely diced carrot
Chopped green onion
2 tsp olive oil a great way to get your oils in
Soy sauce 1 tsp

Heat oil until hot.
Add the cauliflower crumbles and carrot
Cook till tender then add in the green onion and soy sauce.
Stir together and serve!

Doesn't get much easier than that. You could add other veggies but that's what I had on hand.

Individual no crust pumpkin pie Simply Filling

I make this when I'm craving pumpkin pie! I made this in an individual non stick bundt pan.

Individual no crust pumpkin pie Simply Filling count points for the whipped cream mine was 1sp

1/2c pure pumpkin
2 tbsp liquid egg whites
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
sweetener of your choice to taste I used 1 packet

Mix all together and put it into a non stick sprayed individual baking dish. I cooked mine in my toaster oven on 350 for 20 minutes. I just kept checking until it looked "set". When cool I turned it upside down to get out of the pan and put light whipped topping on top for 1sp.

Lasagna Rolls Simply Filling

This recipe is simply filling or add points for the cheese. Since I can't get fat free in Canada I used light. The amount of light cheese I used came to 1sp/serving.
Sorry I didn't measure the sauce as it was SF use whatever sauce you consider SF

Lasagna Rolls Simply Filling +0sp  10 servings

I had leftover marinara sauce from this recipe and used it for the sauce approximately 3 cups
10 whole wheat lasagna noodles cooked and drained
1 cup fat free cottage cheese
2 Tbsp light parmesan cheese when divided between 10 servings is 0sp
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 lb extra lean ground chicken or turkey cooked
I used 3/4c light mozzerella shredded cheese

To make this easier to spread on the cooked noodles I put the cooked ground meat and some of the sauce, approx 1 cup, in my bullet to make it smooth.

Mix the cottage cheese, 1 tbsp of the light parmesean cheese and the Italian seasoning.

On each of the whole wheat lasagna noodles spread some of the meat/sauce mixture.

On top of the meat mixture put some of the cottage cheese mix.

Spray an 11x13 pan with non stick spray.

Roll each of the noodles up and place in the pan.

Spread the rest of the sauce on top of the rolls. I covered with foil and put into a 350 oven for 20 minutes. Took the foil off and put some light cheese on top of each roll then sprinkled the other tbsp of light parmesan cheese.

Put back into the oven for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins Simply Filling +1sp

Update I made these with fresh cranberries and put it in the recipe builder and they came out to 2sp each or Simply Filling.

I saw a few recipes for pumpkin muffins and I really wanted to make one that was simply filling and not such a heavy wet type of muffin. I experimented a couple of times an this is what I came up with.

Yes I use ground oats for the flour and yes I count it as SF. Just what works for me and you can do whatever works for you :)

Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins 6 muffins Simply Filling +1 sp or 4 smart points according to my calculator

I always keep a container of already ground oatmeal in my cupboard so it's quick to use.

1/2c canned pure pumpkin
1 egg
1 egg white
1 small 100g container of light vanilla yogurt
1 tsp of pumpkin spice or more if you like
sweetener to taste I used 1/4c baking splenda but use whatever works for you
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup of already ground oats
2 Tbsp pure mini semi sweet chocolate chips divided into 6 is 1sp/muffin

I used a hand blender to blend the pumpkin, egg, egg white, pumpkin spice, sweetener and yogurt together.
In a small bowl mix the oat flour, baking powder and baking soda together.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
Add the mini chocolate chips into the batter.

I use parchment paper muffin liners which work perfectly every time. I lined a foil muffin cup tray with the liners and divided the batter between the 6 cups.
I baked them in my toaster oven on 350 for 18 minutes. Don't overcook them. I used a toothpick to check to see if they were done.

Enjoy!

Corn tortilla chips! Simply Filling

After being asked how I make these a lot I decided to make a post about them!

Corn tortilla chips Simply Filling

1. Corn tortilla's In Canada it's hard to find light corn tortillas but I found old mill ones that are 2 for 100 calories and 1 gram of fat for both! Good enough for me :)
2. Either and olive oil spray or butter flavored pam
3. Spices: you can use whatever you like but I love using a low sodium taco seasoning mix

I keep my tortillas in the freezer and take a couple out a little while before I need them so they can thaw. It doesn't take long.

Lightly spray them with pam or whatever you are using. It helps the seasoning to stick.

Sprinkle them with your seasoning.

Take a pizza cutter or scissors and cut into triangles.

Put them on a non stick pan. I use non stick foil.

I bake them in my toaster oven at 325 for around 8-10 minutes. Just keep checking until they are crisp. Watch because they can over cook quickly.

Enjoy with your favorite dip or salsa.
