Dish Do-overBook - 2014
All of the flavour, none of the guilt
Based on the wildly popular segment on CBC TV's Steven & Chris, Dish Do-Over takes foods that you can't live without--guilty pleasures and family favourites--and transforms them. Same great taste, but lower in fat and calories, and often wheat-free and gluten-free, too. From a mouth-watering cheesecake with half the calories and fat to fettuccine alfredo that's delicious and gluten-free, you won't notice the smart swaps that make these favourites better.
Packed with colour photographs, Dish Do-Over features more than 125 recipes from soup and starters to quick weeknight dinners and desserts. Here are a few of the easy swaps:
Fat-free evaporated milk replaces 35% cream and whole milk but keeps all the creamy flavour you love in your mac 'n' cheeseTraditional deep-fried favourites such as chicken nuggets and coconut shrimp are reinvented into crispy ovenbaked dishes, thanks to toasted panko bread crumbs Non-fat Greek yogurt replaces butter to make luscious chocolate icing for double-chocolate cake completely guilt-free Bearnaise is made better by tangy 1 percent buttermilk in place of egg yolks and butter Irresistible bistro-style burgers are packed with ground cremini mushrooms to cut the fat and keep extra-lean ground beef moist and juicy
