Salads don’t always have to be cold! This delicious Warm Mushroom and Asparagus Salad Recipe is a breeze to make, with minimal ingredients and cook time, plus it tastes fantastic. Most people either love or hate mushrooms, so to make this Weight Watchers side dish recipe, you’ve gotta be a mushroom lover, as the lovely, earthy taste of the mushrooms is beautifully featured.
I have always adored mushrooms. Even as a young kid, believe it or not. Though back then, the only time I really ate them was on top of pizza. But now, as an adult, my affection for mushrooms have blossomed, and I have found many ways to incorporate them into a variety of Weight Watchers Recipes.
Cheese is, without a doubt, my most favorite food in the world. I eat it in all forms and varieties, and am always using it in my Weight Watchers recipes. This Spinach and Mushroom Quesadilla recipe is such a simple and basic dish that takes just minutes to make, and clocks in at just 4 Points per serving.
This Vegetable Alfredo was absolutely AMAZING! It’s hard to believe that something so simple could be so fantastic, but it is. The huge selection of vegetables is what makes this alfredo go from simple to stupendous. I love the variety of textures and flavors, all covered with a creamy sauce and a sprinkle of lemon zest to add an extra little burst of flavor.
I love pasta dinner nights at home, because that usually means I’m going to have fun finding some new way to add more vegetables to my pasta dish in order to bulk it up and use less carb-heavy noodles. This Spinach, Mushroom, and Caramelized Onion Pasta Recipe uses caramelized onions, which adds a mildly sweet and smoky flavor, and the spinach and mushrooms contributes a wonderful earthiness.
One of my favorite Weight Watchers Vegetarian Recipes is this Portobello and Spinach Stroganoff. It’s so easy to make and tastes amazing. By using the hearty portobello mushrooms instead of beef, this traditional Russian recipe gets a lot healthier and a lot lighter.
Get a big taste of the season with this marvelous Rosemary Chicken Lasagna Recipe and feel no guilt. This lighter version delivers all the fantastic flavors of a more fattening lasagna, but for just 6 Points per serving.
Another amazingly easy and delicious Weight Watchers chicken recipe that tastes like you spent hours preparing it. This Roasted Artichoke and Mushroom Chicken Recipe tastes like a million bucks! The artichokes and mushroom deliver a nice dose of fiber, and the mustard and red wine sauce add the perfect flavor, all while the chicken stays juicy and succulent.
Recently, I had some extra mushrooms on hand that I didn’t want to go bad, and so I started looking for something I could do with them. I didn’t feel like cooking some big dish, and I wanted to do something new with mushrooms that I hadn’t tried before. So, I started scouring the Internet, in search of some ideas and inspiration. Leave it to Martha Stewart to suggest the idea of marinated mushrooms.
If you’ve ever had stuffed mushrooms appetizers a party or dinner, then you know how delicious those succulent little devils are! So, after seeing a few versions pop up on the Internet lately, I decided to make my own, low-calorie Stuffed Mushrooms Casserole that would fulfill all the taste requirements of traditional stuffed mushrooms, but still be a good Weight Watchers Recipe. I added some savory seasonings like thyme and sage, which remind me of Thanksgiving stuffing. And I used Panko breadcrumbs to keep it light, but still bread-y (yes, that is a word, ok?) It was absolutely delicious! Covered…
Growing up as a kid, my busy parents often fed my sister and I TV dinners…Swanson TV dinners to be exact. I remember them like it was yesterday. Salisbury Steak was often the main entree, and even though I now know better about eating healthy, all I knew back then was that those Salisbury steaks tasted pretty darn good.
Spinach and mushroom lasagna is one of absolute favorite dishes. It’s loaded with good for you ingredients and is so cheesy and creamy. But aside from the fact that this dish is made with healthy vegetables, most traditional Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna Recipes can be loaded with extra fat, calories and carbs.
Tom Kha Gai Soup, or Thai Coconut Soup, has always been one of absolute favorite foods. I salivate at the mere thought of it. Sweet, spicy, tangy….it has everything I adore. But restaurant versions can be way high in fat in calories,. not to mention, it gets expensive buying soup from Thai restaurants all the time! So I decided to make a healthier, Weight Watchers Tom Kha Gai Soup at home.
And today, I wanted to share a new favorite Italian Chicken Crock Pot Recipe of mine. often called “Angel Chicken”. Each serving is just 5 Points each and it is delicious! Chicken smothered in a creamy mushroom wine sauce? Yes, please! For some extra Points, serve it over rice or pasta. Or for 0 extra Points, it also works really nicely over asparagus or roasted bell peppers.
This traditional Chicken Piccata Recipe got a much healthier makeover! If you love this popular Italian dish but are afraid it may be too many Weight Watchers Points, then this healthier version will make your day. Just by using less butter, and a lighter version of it, this Chicken Piccata still maintains the buttery flavor, but for a lot less fat and calories. It’s also bulked up a bit with some mushrooms. And of course, the velvety, piccata sauce is divine with the delicate flavor of wine, the acidity of the fresh lemon, and the zing of garlic. Each serving…
Ok, if you have tried my Vegetarian Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich Recipe and are a fan, then you will be very excited about my new version of it….my Vegetarian Cheese Steak Stuffed Pepper Recipe!
On Christmas morning, wouldn’t it be nice to wake up to a healthy, Weight Watchers breakfast that was cooked for you, hot and ready? Well, this easy Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole Recipe does just that! Full of protein, but lower on carbs, this breakfast casserole packs in everything you need for a filling and satisfying meal.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m already salivating at the thought of all the tasty foods at Super Bowl parties, and it’s not even Christmas yet! One of my favorite, easy finger foods recipes that is delicious, but still low in Weight Watchers Points, are these low calorie Beef Sliders.
Back when Weight Watchers was still using their old Points plan, I posted a Beef Tips in Mushroom Sauce Recipe. Since then, I’ve gotten a lot of feedback and questions about it, so I decided to re-make this dish, change it up a bit, and calculate the new Points value. Even though it ends up being 10 Points per serving, these beef tips were sooooooo good! If you are a meat lover, then this is absolutely worth the splurge in Points. It packs in tons of protein too, so it’s really a satisfying dish. Try serving it over some Miracle…
If you are in the mood for a bit of a Points splurge for a an absolutely delicious and decadent breakfast recipe, then this Baked Egg Bread Boat Recipe is just the ticket. I came across this recipe at Spoon Fork Bacon, and decided to play around with it a bit to make it more Weight Watchers friendly. Just a few small changes, and my Baked Egg Bread Boat turned out SO good!
I’m one of those people who believe that any food breaded and fried is just absolutely delicious. And these Baked & Breaded Mushrooms are no exception. But my version uses Panko, is baked, not fried, and is just as good, if not WAY better than the greasy fried version. The delicate flavor of the mushroom is not lost, and the crisp, Parmesan seasoned Panko breading is oh so perfect.
Even though we are in the midst of summer heat, I came across a super amazing Mushroom Soup Recipe at Season with Spice. It simply looked too good not to try, and I happened to have a lot of extra mushrooms in the fridge, so despite the 96 degree temperature outside, I got to work re-working her recipe into something more Weight Watchers friendly.
I got rid of the noddles in this Noodle-Free Lasagna Recipe, and used grilled zucchini and Portablella mushrooms instead, and it was a HUGE hit! The lasagna tasted amazing and the noodles weren’t missed a bit. The key was to still use good mozzarella cheese (not fat free) and use real ground beef instead of ground turkey. This helps to keep all of the amazing flavors of a traditional lasagna that we all love.
An easy and healthy dinner idea, this Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Alfredo Recipe is all kinds of good! Full of flavor, and smothered in creamy alfredo sauce, it’s hard to believe that each serving is just 5 Points.
