Bean Tacos/Nachos

1 large tin red kidney beans
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, grated
1/2 zucchini grated
2 sticks celery, chopped
3 Tbsp or to taste tomato kassoundi (spicy tomato relish)
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce

Reserve about 3/4 cup sauce and place all other ingredients in a pot, stir to combine cover and simmer on low for around 10min or until vegetables have cooked down.

Remove lid and add enough of the remaining sauce to create a base sauce that is not too runny.

Depending on your batch and the freshness of the vegetables you may need to simmer some excess water off and reduce the mixture to a thicker consistency.

Turn heat off and alow to stand and cool a little while you prepare the toppings. Beans can be eaten in taco shells, or placed on broken taco shels like nachos, or in wraps such as tortillas or mountain bread wraps!

Topping suggestions:
lettuce, capsicum, tomato, low fat philli cheese, avocado

You can vary the toping to your favourites. you can also vary the sauces (try tomato paste, salsa, commercial taco sauces, anything you like!). It's colourful, full of iron and protein and best of all, you can eat tacos and wraps with your hands!

Passionberry Cheesecake

Serves 8

200g packet low fat ginger cookies
1/4 cup apple puree
250g packet light cream cheese (at room temp)
400g low fat passionfruit yogurt
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 egg
3 egg whites
2 tbs plain flour
100g fresh or frozen berries (I used Raspberries)
icing sugar
passionfruit pulp

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Place biscuits in a food processer and blend to fine crumbs. Add puree and blend until well combined. Press mixture onto the base of a 20cm spring loaded pan. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

With an electric beater, beat cheese and sugar until smooth. Add egg, beat until combined. Add eggwhites, 1 at a time, beating well between each one.

Stir in yogurt and flour, mix well. Fold in berries. Pour into pan over base evenly.

Bake for an hour or until set. Once set, turn off the oven but allow to cool with oven door open to prevent cracking.

Dust with icing sugar and serve with passionfruit pulp.

55g Biscuits, crushed (I used Paradise Highland Oatmeal because they're the lowest in kilojoules, you could also use Weight Watchers, Vive Lites)
20g Meadow Lea Extra Light Spread, melted

Filling:
125g Philadelphia Extra Light Cream Cheese, room temperature
1 tsp Gelatine
2 satchets Splenda/Equal
1 tsp Vanilla essence
20g Milo (keep a tsp or so aside to sprinkle over the top)

Method:

1. Mix biscuit crumbs & melted margarine together and press firmly into the bottom of a square cake tin/plastic container. Chill for 30 minutes.
2. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese , Splenda and vanilla essence until smooth & creamy. Stir in Milo.
3. Dissolve Gelatine in 40mL boiling water and stir in to cream cheese mixture.
4. Pour cream cheese mixture over biscuit base.

Nutritional Information per serve:
Calories: 125
Kilojoules: 523
Fat: 5.6g
Protein: 6.2g
Fibre: 0.6

**TIP: To Make it easier to get the cheesecake out of the tin/container, spray a little cooking spray over the tin/container and then press some glad wrap onto this. You can then lift the cheesecake out by the top of the glad wrap when it's set and cut it much easier.

Chocolate Protein Bars

Ingredients:
120g chocolate protein powder, any kind
100g unflavoured soy protein isolate powder
50g chocolate (I use the well naturally sugar free choc... yum!)
200g low fat cream cheese
1tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp margarine/butter, unsalted if possible
1 tsp vanilla essence
Sweetner to taste (I use stevia powder)

Method:
- Put cream cheese, butter, peanut butter and chocolate in a bowl and zap in microwave until it's all melted, then add vanilla essence and mix well.
- Put protein powders and sweetner (if powdered, if using liquid sweetner, add it to the cream cheese/chocolate mixture) in a large bowl and mix together with a whisk
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix well. Use a metal fork initially, then you'll have to get your hands dirty to get it completely mixed (the fun bit!!)
- Lick your hands.... a VERY important step. Then, wash them :twisted:
- Put the mixture into a lined baking tray and refrigerate for an hour or so.
- Cut into 12 bars, wrap them individually and store back in the fridge
- Try to not eat them all at once :lol:

Variations:
1. Choc Mint bars: Use mint chocolate (with the little mint crispies in it!) and peppermint essence instead of vanilla
2. White Chocolate bars: Use vanilla protein powder, and white chocolate.
3. Choc Nut bars: Add some finely chopped nuts, and almond essence instead of vanilla

Sorry I can't post photos. I gobbled up the last lot I made, and I can't make any more for a while... they just don't last with me :(

EDIT:
Ok I made some more! So far so good, I've only eaten two so far! This is it, before I cut it into pieces...
