Creamy Lemon Veggies & Rice

This stuff is an awesome meal for vegetarians or side dish for meat-lovers. I used zuchinni, squash, and bell peppers, but use what sounds good to you.

Creamy Lemon Veggies and Rice

1-2 cups fresh mixed vegetables
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. milk
1 tbsp green onions, chopped
1/2 or 1 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
Parmesan Cheese (optional)

Saute veggies with nonfat cooking spray, remove from heat. In same skillet, melt cream cheese-then add milk and seasoning to your taste. Add rice and veggies, then heat through. Before serving garnish with green onions and cheese.

This makes 1 HUGE meal or 2 sides.

Tuna Patties w/ Yogurt Dill Sauce

Salmon in a can is disgusting. Period. I was going to make these making salmon and almost threw up from the smell. So I threw it down the disposable and got a can of tuna instead. Amazing!
The best part is the sauce. If you make the patties you have to make the sauce to go on top.
Tuna Patties
1 sm. can tuna, drain well
1 egg white
1/2 c. wheat bread crumbs
Generous dash of each- Lemon Pepper seasoning, Dill, Garlic Salt
Combine all the stuff and form into 4 patties. "Fry" in cooking spray until lightly brown on both sides.
Each patty is 61 calories and 1 gram fat
Lemon Dill Sauce
1/2 cont. fat free plain yogurt
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Dash of dill
Pinch of sugar
Combine all and top on tuna patties.
I ate mine with a baked sweet potato and spinach salad. Yum-O!
