I’ve been loving the American Heart Association Quick & Easy Cookbook lately. The recipes are quite simple and very tasty. One of my favorites is Broccoli With Easy Mustard Sauce.

Because of my own needs, cooking style, flavor preferences, etc, I made a few small changes to the original recipes.

I removed the flour, reduced the amount of water and added a bit of salt.  The recipe is still quite similar to the one in the book.

Ingredients

3 cups frozen broccoli

2 tbsp water

2 large pinches chicken soup mix

2 pinches thyme, crushed

3 tbsp drained low-fat cream cheese

1/2 tsp sharp mustard

salt

Directions

Microwave the broccoli till tender. Drain well.

Combine all ingredients except for broccoli in a shallow saucepan. Stir well. Heat till mix starts to bubble around the edges.

Pour sauce over broccoli and serve immediately.

Get your own copy of the American Heart Association Quick & Easy Cookbook at Amazon. Sadly, this book is out-of-print so you will need to purchase an inexpensive used copy.

Delicious Low Fat Herb SpreadSource: anemoneprojectors

Since I’m currently on a very low fat diet, I spend a lot of time perusing the pages of healthy cookbooks for exciting new recipes. My new favorite comes from the pages of the American Heart Association Quick And Easy Cookbook. The original recipe is called Cucumber and Herbed Cream Cheese Sandwiches.

As usual, I’ve changed the recipe quite a bit to suit my own tastes.The original recipe called for tarragon, which I’m not always crazy about. Instead I substituted oregano and salt, plus upped the red pepper slightly. The result is yum!

Ingredients

8 ounces low fat cream cheese or other spreadable cheese product (examples listed below)

1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

2 small pinches red pepper, crushed

salt, to taste

skim milk, if needed

Instructions

Drain or whip in skim milk to spreadable cheese product till you get the consistency you desire. Combine all ingredients and stir well. Serve with healthy low fat crackers or toasted bread.

Examples of spreadable cheese products are low fat cream cheese, nonfat cream cheese, drained low fat yogurt, drained and blended low fat cottage cheese, Israeli white cheese, etc.
