My mamma just loves to cook and always has, but sometimes…things just don’t quite pan out! Today she has had a busy day with work and chores and when daddy arrived home late from work and promptly intimated that he was going to have a “health shake” for dinner…it was easy for her to decide on her meal of choice for herself!
She opted for a low cal, lacto-vego concoction that would take but maybe 15 minutes to throw together…whilst at the same time instantly and surely tantalise her taste buds!
Mum said she will give amounts for the ingredients as she did work out the caloric content and would like it to be as accurate as possible!!
KUMERA, MUSHIES & PARMESAN THINGY!! (She just made that name up now…)
Kumera (orange sweet potato) peeled 350g raw
6 med mushrooms sliced
Natural Greek yoghurt 45g
Grated Parmesan cheese 25g
Salt and pepper to taste
Spiralise the Kumera using your now invaluable vegetable spiraliser. Place the Kumera noodles and sliced mushrooms into a large fry pan and sauté on medium heat. You may use a small amount of spray oil to avoid sticking or you can use a small amount of chicken stock (even better!). Keep moving around to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan. When the noodles are ‘al dente’, add the Parmesan cheese and combine well. Arrange on the dinner plate and top with a dollop of Greek yoghurt…season to taste.
Make sure that you mush around the yoghurt well, before eating to create a delicious creamy consistency!!
This meal serves one person and contains approximately 407 calories!!
