cooking tips

ok I searched and found no thread on cooking tips so here is a couple I have tried.

1. egg whites is great for fries/chips. just dredge them in eggwhites and seasoning herbs and bake. just use fry light/pam so the fries dont oil needed. I made sweet potatoe fries last night like this yum!

2 . spray your pan so it doesnt stick with pam/ fry light and dip you chicken or quorn fillet in egg whites dredge in polenta and parmesean with seasonings and bake.

no oil no fat and taste great on brown rice noodles with a homemade sauce( tomatoe based) of vegetables such as corgettes/zuchini, mushrooms, onions, any veggies like that. its so good and healthy.

Steam veggies in a wok using chicken broth and crushed garlic and toss the remaining liquid with the veggies at the end (don't use much liquid - 1/4 cup for 4 servings of veggies) - tastes amazingly 'buttery'.

I cook EVERYTHING in a non stick pan electric skillet with butter flavor Pam or the equivalent of.
I even make "fried" zucchini and I don't dredge it in anything. Just zucchini and butter flavor spray salt and pepper. Then when it's done I can't believe it's not butter spray. It is so yummy and 20 cal per zucchini.
I have coated chicken and made chicken tenders with egg beaters and seasoned bread crumbs. Fry wtih Pam.
I used to love tortillas fried in oil before I made a taco or fajita. Now I heat my skillet (non stick) really hot and spray the tortilla with butter flavor Pam. fry one side and spray before you turn it.
It turns out crispy and tasty. Also if you want to make casadillas Sorry for the spelling errors. I use parchement paper on a cookie sheet and put my tortilla down then whatever fillings you want. Bake at 350 till everything is melted. The parchment keeps the tortilla from sticking and easy clean up. Use the same idea for tortilla pizza.

Ok this may sound absolutely crazy but it is good.
I make hot air popcorn and use pam or that type spray to "butter" it with. I don't like the taste of pam so I use a store brand butter flavor spray. NOT I can't believe it's not butter spray. It is too wet.
Also I have found jolly time has an excellent 100 cal bag that is actually 90 cal. The other night I was wanting something sweet so I used my spray on it and sprinkled a couple of packets of splenda on it. It was really good. Made me feel like I was having kettle corn.
I love green beans with bacon so I bought turkey bacon and cooked it and sauted some onion and put it in with the cooked and drained green beans and then used I can't believe it's not butter spray and salt and pepper. Really good.
I always wanted to use Egg beaters to make my egg fu young but it is too watery to hold it together well. So I use 1 cup of egg beaters and 4 egg whites. It works perfectly. Cheaper too.
