1 large can tuna
1 tbsp chopped onion

about 1/3 cup of crushed pork rinds
(or just enough to bind them together good)

Submitted by: Margal
1 head of fresh cauliflower (about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon style mustard
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground pepper
**Always soak fresh cauliflower in about a gallon of water to which you have added 2 Tbsp of salt. This removes any hidden "little critters".
After soaking cauliflower for about 30 minutes, rinse well, pat dry and remove the outer leaves. Cut off as much of the bottom core as possible, but leave the head in tact. With a very thin, sharp knife, make several stab holes into the core and the stems of the cauliflower florets. This will aerate the dense parts of the cauliflower. Place the head of cauliflower on a microwave safe dish with a lip to catch the water that will cook out. Cook on high for 13 minutes. During cooking time, mix the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, nutmeg and pepper together. As soon as cooking time has completed, remove the cauliflower from the microwave and "ice" the top and the upper sides with the "glaze" and sprinkle a little paprika on for color. Let stand for 3 minutes before serving. To serve, slice the entire head of cauliflower into wedges and serve.
**The glaze given in this recipe is a 'mock hollandaise' sauce and may be enjoyed on a variety of cooked veggies like: broccoli, asparagus, artichokes and even on poached eggs!

4 sm - med zucchini
Cut both ends from the zucchini, wash and pat them dry. As thin as possible, slice the zucchini lengthwise. Lay the slices out on several layers of paper towels. Lightly salt the slices, cover with additional paper towels and let stand for about 15 minutes to draw out the excess water from the zucchini.
Heat vegetable oil in large heavy pot (or use a deep fryer) to 350 degrees. Beat the egg until it is light lemon colored. Dip each zucchini strip into the beaten egg and drop into the hot oil. Cook about 5 or 6 strips at a time. Cook only until they are light golden brown. Remove, drain on layers of paper towels. You may keep these warm on a cookie sheet in a 300 degree oven until all zucchini slices are cooked. These may be served with a horseradish dipping sauce (below)
Horseradish Dipping sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp Dijon style mustard
1-2 Tbls horseradish
And another one from Carol M.
1 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1 can bean sprouts (drained well and pulsed in the food processor to look like rice)
5 green onions (chopped)
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 29 oz can crushed tomatoes (needs to be no more than 5 gms carbs per 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup water
1 medium head cabbage
There are several ways to par-cook cabbage to make cabbage rolls.
(1) You can clean off the outer leaves, core the head, wrap it in plastic wrap and freeze. The day before you want to make cabbage rolls, remove the cabbage from the freezer and place it in a bowl to thaw. As it thaws, the leaves will fall away and the freezing/thawing process *blanches* the cabbage leaves.
(2) You can place the cleaned and cored head of cabbage in a microwave safe dish and set the microwave on high for about 15 minutes. During the cooking time, check the cabbage and remove the outer leaves as they soften and loosen from the rest.
(3) You can submerge the cleaned/cored head of cabbage in a pot of boiling water and remove the leaves as they soften.
Always cut off the bottom center vein of each cabbage leaf, as it is tough and will not cook as evenly as the rest of the leaf.
Mix the ground beef, ground pork, egg, diced green onions, salt, pepper and chopped bean sprouts together. Mix thoroughly. Roll each "blanched" cabbage leaf around some of the meat mixture and place in a casserole dish. Top of with some of the large outer leaves to prevent the cabbage rolls from getting dried out and too brown during cooking. Pour the entire can of crushed tomatoes over the cabbage rolls and add the water. Cover casserole and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 2 hours. Check during cooking to make see if additional water needs to be added. Yields about 10--4 inch cabbage rolls.
**If you'd prefer not to use crushed tomatoes, the cabbage rolls can be cooked in low--sodium sauerkraut.
**These may be cooked in the microwave in a microwave safe covered casserole. Cook on Med/high (70% power) for approximately 30 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before eating.
