3- House Of Herbs Hickory Liquid Smoke

 

SMOKY RUSSIAN DRESSING low-fat

Steve likes bottled dressing and sometimes so do I. Wishbone Russian is one of them. To reduce the calories this time, I add a low calorie unsweetened Almondmilk by Blue Diamond (Almond Breeze), a few drops of liquid smoke, a little garlic powder, salt, then whisk till smooth. Perfect! I love the transformation to creamy!

Makes 1-3/4 cups

1 c. bottled Wishbone Russian Dressing

3/4 c. Almond Breeze AlmondMilk – unsweetened 30 calories per 8 oz.

sev. drops liquid smoke to taste

1/2 t. garlic powder

salt to taste


Combine all ingredients in bowl and whisk till evenly dispersed and smooth.

Use over green leaf and cabbage salads or serve with fried rice dishes, heated.

Serve heated or chilled, whatever your preference.


Notes: Wishbone Russian is Steve’s go-to salad dressing for work. To reduce the calories he drizzles the dressing over the salad, then drizzles Balsamic vinegar around the edges of the salad, without mixing the two. He gets the benefit of the full-strength Russian without using as much of it. And, he likes how the Russian dressing mutes the acidity of the Balsamic vinegar, when the two collide on the plate. Perfect again!

Add the amount of Almondmilk that suits the thickness you want for the dressing. I prefer mine on the thin side, while still creamy-textured.

To increase the protein content in one of the salads I used with this dressing, I sliced a chilled veggie hot dog and tossed with lettuce, tomato, onion, carrot cabbage and red pepper. Tasted great for lunch!

FAKIN’ BACON – smoky tempeh strips

Decades ago I tried Fakin’ Bacon. I don’t even know if this is the same company. Either they changed the recipe/formula or my appreciation for it changed.

It’s made by Lightlife, the people who make Gimme Lean breakfast sausage in a tube – a product I swear by.

Although I’ve never pursued tempeh when everybody else was into it, and I’m still not pursuing it, this product was off the charts – just plain.

I ate a piece raw before cooking it in oil and it had, at least to me, a wine flavor. Like Sherry.

Cooked 3-4 minutes each side in oiled skillet, and it textured more like ‘fall off the bone’ than bacon.

Great taste and texture.

What is tempeh? Tempeh is a traditional soy product originating from Indonesia. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form. Wikipedia.

If I saw this again, I would definitely buy it.

Pan-fry a Lightlife Meatless Jumbo Hot dog till cooked throughout.

Place about 1/4 down from flatbread edge closest to you. Lift edge up over hot dog, tucking under it, then roll the rest of the way.

Wipe away any condiments that leak as a result of rolling.

Oil a skillet on medium heat. Place the roll up folded edge down and sear to seal. It won’t take long. Remove, cut in half and serve.

A great way to eat a hot dog!
