I’m so proud of my mom who decided to make a good choice for her body and her health and already lost 10 kilos (22 pounds) in the less than 4 months. She’s using the Weight Watchers program. I made two recipes of the Best of Weight Watchers cook book in her honor. Both recipes are vegetarian (or vegan) friendly!
Spinach Tomato Orzo
This spinach-tomato orzo is 8 smartpoints.
* 240 gr orzo or risoni
* 200 gr cherry tomatoes, cut in half
* ts olive oil
* 300 gram fresh spinach
* 100 gram light feta cheese, crumbled
Boil the orzo. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and fry the tomatoes for 5 minutes. Add the spinach and heat for a couple more minutes.
Mix the orzo with the vegetables and serve with the feta. Vegans can leave the feta out.
Quesadillas with sun-dried tomato cream
These quesadillas with sundried tomato cream are 9 smartpoints.
120 gram cream cheese light
80 grams sundried tomatoes (without oil)
150 grams cannellini beans
4 whole wheat tortillas
Handful of rocket
Mix the cream cheese with the sundried tomatoes and the cannellini beans. I used a food processor for this. Divide the mixture and the rocket over the wraps and fold them. Heat a skillet and shortly warm the quesadillas on both sides.
