Stuffed Cucumber Rings Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

2 large eggplants
1 a little oil
1 oz flaked almonds
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 salt & pepper
1 cucumber
1 lettuce
1 lb tomatoes, sliced
1 lemon wedges
1 parsley sprigs

Recipe Preparation

Preheat oven to 400F/200C.

Slice eggplants in half & rub oil lightly over the skin. Place face

insides & blend with the almonds, onion, garlic & parsley. Season
well & chill thoroughly.

Cut cumcumber into 8 x 1 inch rounds. Scoop out the middle of each
round to form a small case, be careful not to cut all the way
through. Either leave the cases raw or blanch in boiling water for 5
minutes. Fill cucumber chunks with the eggplant pate.

Line a serving platter with lettuce & edge this with tomato slices.
Put cucumber cases in the centre & garnish with lemon & parsley.

Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Eat regular meals Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbohydrates are a very efficient energy source. A low carb diet requires more care in monitoring you energy levels, as the energy provided by protein and fat is much slower acting.

* Read food labels Be sceptical of food packaging that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the reverse of the tin or packet. Some are only marginally lowered and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.

Foods high in flavonoids
(inlcudes lettuce, kale, kidney bean and chamomile)

The compounds known as flavonoids which exist in these fruits and vegetables are believed to be good in helping to prevent cancer.
Nutritionalists researching the medical effects of flavonoids believe that they may well also have numerous other health benefits, including, but not limited to, anti-asthma and antiplatelet activities..
A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every weight loss program.
