Spiced Apple Pudding
-  Yield: 4 servings

2 c Unsweetened apple juice; 1/3 c Granulated sugar substitute;
1/3 c Cornstarch; 1/2 ts Cinnamon;
1 Egg; (or 2 yolks)

MY NOTE: This recipe is marked in the allergy category only because
it is a pudding without milk, also low in protein. It is one of my
favorite ways to use up egg yolks or prepare a dessert when Ive run
out of milk. Probably does not require as much sweetening as stated
in the recipe - start with 2 Tbsp. sweetener and add more if
necessary. Cost to make the whole recipe is around $1.22.

In a heavy saucepan, combine 1/2 cup apple juice and cornstarch; mix
well. Add remaining juice. Place over medium heat and cook,
stirring, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for
2 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a bowl, beat egg with a fork. Add 1/2 cup of hot mixture to
beaten egg. Stir until smooth. Return immediately to hot mixture,
stirring constantly. (The hot mixture will cook the egg.)

Stir in sweetener and cinnamon. Pour into 4 dessert dishes, cover
with plastic wrap to prevent skin from forming. Cool to room
temperature or chill in refrigerator.

the saucepan. Divide the cooked pudding into 6 small dishes so that
there is approx. 1 tsp sugar per serving if you are allowed this much
on your meal plan. 94 calories, 21 grams carbohydrate estimated.

Baked Sandwiches
-  Yield: 12 servings

1 1/4 c Water at 110 to 115 F 1 1/2 lb Lean ground beef
2 1/4 ts Quick-rise yeast (1 pkg) 1/2 c Chopped onions
2 c All-purpose flour 1 c Tomato sauce
1 ts Salt 1/4 c Catsup
1 Egg 1 ts Garlic salt
2 tb Vegetable oil 1/2 ts Leaf oregano
1 1/2 c Graham flour 1 pn Pepper
FILLING

May be frozen. Defrost in the fridge, on the way to a picnic or in
the microwave if you want them in a hurry.

Combine water and yeast in mixer bowl and let stand 5 minutes. Add
all purpose flour and mix at medium speed for another 4 minutes. Turn
the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead a few times,
form into a ball and place in a well-greased mixing bowl. Turn the
ball over to grease the top, cover with a cloth and let stand at room
temperature to rise until doubled in volume.

While the dough is rising, cook the meat and onions over medium heat,
stirring frequently, until the onions are soft and the meat is
browned. Drain. Discard fat and juice, return meat and onions to the
pan. Add tomato sauce, catsup, seasoning and cook over medium heat
until the meat is dry with no noticeable liquid. Set meat mixture
aside to cool until dough is ready.

After the dough has doubled in volume, transfer it to a lightly
floured working surface. Knead lightly. Form into a roll and cut
into 12 equal portions. Form each portion into a little ball, cover
with a cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.

Roll each ball out to form a circle 5 to 6 inches across. Put about
1/4 cup of the meat mixture in the center of the circle. Pull the
dough up around the filling and press together at the top. Place on
a well greased cookie sheet, cover with a cloth and let stand about
30 to 40 minutes at room temperature or until doubled in volume. Bake
at 350 F for 40 to 45 minutes or until lightly browned and firm.
Serve hot, using 1 sandwich per serving, or refrigerate or freeze to
be used later.

Lemon Pudding Sauce
-  Yield: 1 servings

4 ts Cornstarch (try 2 tbsp) 1 Egg
1 c Water 2 ts Margarine or butter
Peel of 1 lemon, grated 8 ts Sugar, Aspertame substitute
1/4 c Lemon juice

Combine cornstarch, water, lemon peel and lemon juice in a small heavy
saucepan. Beat in egg. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly
until thickened and clear. Stir in margarine and sweetener.

WHOLE RECIPE: 20 g carbohydrate, 10 g protein, 10 g fat (210
calories) Source: Choice Cooking, Canadian Diabetes Association 1986
Real sugar - add 48 calories + 12.4 grams carbohydrate per extra Tb.
Cornstarch - add 29 calories + 7 grams carbohydrate per extra Tb. Egg
~ subtract 1 med-fat meat exchange if not used. Adjust for the number
of servings.

Note: original recipe is for a sauce, try 2 tbsp cornstarch and
divide among 3 dishes for a pudding/pie filling with one crumbled
graham cracker and a shake of cinnamon in the bottom of each dish.

EGGLESS: 1 or 2 extra tsp. cornstarch (5 tsp or 2 tb.) would likely
thicken the sauce without the egg. 1 tsp. cornstarch plus 3 tb.
liquid is given as an equivalent to 1 whole egg in the book called
Substituting Ingredients.

Lemon Sauce may be served with cake, gingerbread, and crisp meringues
with strawberries or other fruit (Pavlova is the common name in
Australian cookbooks).

Diet Cream Soup Base
-  Yield: 2 servings

WHITE SAUCE 8 oz Can tomato sauce
3 1/2 tb Instant milk powder 3 tb Chopped onion
1 1/2 tb Cornstarch 1 pn Dry rosemary, crumbled
1 1/4 c Cold water 1 pn Fresh ground pepper
TOMATO 1 pn Cayenne pepper

This recipe is suitable for anyone who needs to know the exact
contents of soup.
OTHER OPTIONS: Regular recipes use about 1 1/2 Tb butter and 1 1/2 Tb
flour per cup of milk for a medium white sauce.

5 oz evaporated milk plus 5 oz water plus 1 Tb corn starch

1 cup soy milk plus 1 Tb corn starch

1 cup skim milk plus 1 Tb vegetable oil plus 1 Tb corn starch

Put ingredients in a blender and process at high speed until well
blended, or put ingredients in a jar and shake, or stir dry
ingredients into cold milk with a whisk.

Stir constantly in the top of a double boiler until the sauce
thickens and simmers, then cook ten minutes. A medium saucepan set
in a larger saucepan of simmering water works, too.

Fresh tomatoes may be cooked with onion and seasoning, allowed to
cool and pureed in a blender to make the sauce. If the tomato
mixture is colder, add a little of the hot white sauce to bring it to
the same temperature. This prevents curdling when the red mixture is
gradually added back into the pot with the white sauce.

Heat soup until it is hot enough to serve but do not allow it to boil.

The same method may be used with 3/4 to 1 cup of cooked diced (or
pureed) vegetables with cooking liquid used to make the sauce. Makes
about 2 cups. Suggested vegetables: potato with a little onion,
carrot, zucchini, cabbage with a little ham, sauteed onion, mushroom,
broccoli. Season to taste.

Tested Dec 93 using powdered milk, and (thawed) canned tomato by
Elizabeth Rodier. This was a successful experiment based on a
combination of recipes from several different books.
