I would also like to say that the no white sugar part of the diet is not heavily emphasized at the Houston household so....yea. Take all the "No White diet" recipes with a grain of salt...or sugar. HA.
This meal was one of my/our personal favorites so far!
This recipe is one my mom made a year or two ago that she got from her friend Dee. And lo and behold, here it is. It's like a soup you'd get at Zuppa's! Versatile as either a fall or summer soup. And perfectly delicious either way.
-1/2 pound onions, chopped
-1 1/2 pounds zucchini, washed, peeled, and sliced
-3 cups chicken broth
-1/8 tsp nutmeg
-1/8 tsp salt
-dash cayenne pepper (can leave out if you don't like spicy food whatsoever)
-1/2 cup half and half
-cheese, bacon bits, and sour cream to top it
Cook chopped onion in butter until clear but not brown. Combine onion, zucchini, chicken broth in heavy saucepan. Bring to boil and simmer 15 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Add seasoning and blend in blender until smooth (BUT DON'T BLEND IT BOILING HOT LIKE I DID cause it like explodes. There is no other way to describe it.). Adjust seasoning to taste (for fall you may want to add more nutmeg, for summer you may want to add the cayenne.). Add 1/2 cup half and half. Reheat but don't boil. Garnish with toppings of choice.
Crispy Baked Parmesan Green Bean Fries!
These are really great if you are bored with just steaming green beans. And personally I don't think they would be good with ketchup. They are plenty flavorful all by themselves. (*side note, I used garlic salt and real minced garlic instead of garlic powder and it was still delish.)

Healthy No Bake Chocolate Berry Pie! (with coconut milk!)
This pie is so pretty it deserves two pictures, I think you'll agree.
Do not skimp on the freezer time. It won't work. I tried. Freeze it for AT LEAST 2 hours before consumption. It is such a creative use of coconut milk! Who knew?!
