Now that I am on a diet, I have to calorie count everything. Every morsel I eat is weighed, measured, accounted for. This is one of the recipes I made for myself with the summer vegies I had on hand.
Ingredients Cals Kj
1 onion, chopped
125 gr capsicum, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
500 gr zucchini, chopped
200 gr green beans, chopped
400 gr tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp thyme leaves
2 Tblsp basil, torn
1/4 cup tomato puree
Saute onion and capsicum for 5 minutes in a large saucepan sprayed with oil.
Add rest of ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes.
Serve warm with meat or fish or on it's own with crusty bread.
The whole recipe added up to 340 calories. I weighed the finished dish and then divided that by 4 serves, so 1 serve was only 85 calories! I had it with a 100 gr piece of steak. I mixed some pasta through the ratatouille for the kids and Brett.
I have been posting some of my meals on instagram, if you would like to follow along, I have just started tagging with #onemotherdiet.
