yBroccoli & Water Chestnut Stir Fry

This stir fry recipe is very easy to prepare and requires minimal ingredients.

You'll need some broccoli florets, just a bit of your favorite meat (chicken, turkey, beef or pork) and a can of water chestnuts.

Prepare the meat in a deep pan on the stove top using cooking spray to prevent sticking if necessary.

Add the broccoli and keep stirring until coated with the juices of the meat.

Add about an inch of water and cover with a lid so the broccoli can steam. Next, add the drained water chestnuts and a bit of your favorite Asian sauce.

Wonton & Egg Roll Wrappers

These work nicely in the little sandwich machine and the dough is just the right size. Fill with cooked shredded cabbage, shredded carrot, finely chopped celery and onions which have been sauteed on the stove top.

Add your favorite Asian sauce to the vegetables; fill the wonton or egg roll wrappers and transfer to the sandwich maker. Keep experimenting with different flavor combinations such as: pork, pineapple, mushrooms, onions and broccoli.

Hominy Stir Fry Recipe

This is another very simple recipe from Diet Bites that is very delicious and so easy to prepare. You'll need a medium size can of white hominy and a medium size can of yellow hominy. Drain the cans and pour the hominy into a deep non-stick skill that has been coated with a very light layer of extra virgin olive oil.

Toss in 1/2 cup of chopped onions. You can use any variety - yellow, white or purple or even leeks or shallots if you wish. Also add 1/2 cup of bell pepper, again - any variety of yellow, red or green. You will need to chop the bell pepper or cut it into thin strips before adding to the hominy.

Next add four pieces of crumbled microwave bacon. When cooked in the microwave, bacon contains only 25 calories or so per slice.

Finally, when the hominy mix is thoroughly heated and the onions and peppers are tender, add 1 cup of reduced fat shredded cheese of your choice - either white or yellow.
