Add in some ham and this is a pretty authentic sandwich – it’s just on whole wheat slices rather than a roll. But for only 285 calories, I’ll give up a little authenticity – and you don’t have to give up on ANY of the flavor ! You can add some mustard if you like, but I like this one plain.
285 calories per serving
2 oz. cooked leftover pork, sliced thin (slices from Grilled Pork Roast are great)
2 slices whole wheat lite bread (45 calories per slice)
1 slice light Swiss cheese (70 calories)
2 sandwich stacker pickles, patted dry
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray
Make a sandwich of the pork, cheese and pickles. Heat a grill pan or frying pan and spray with Pam. Spray one side of the sandwich with 5-10 spritzes of ICBINB spray and lay the sprayed side down. Grill 3 minutes pressing down on the sandwich lightly. Spray the top of the sandwich with ICBINB and flip then continue cooking 2-3 minutes.
Black Beans are a great source of fiber and a great, filling addition to many salads, stews, etc. In this purer form, their earthy flavor really comes out.
368 calories per serving
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 small red onion
2 garlic cloves
2 T olive oil
1 c water
1/2 c sofrito (jars are sold in the Mexican section of your grocery store – near the Goya products)
2 T cilantro leaves
8 T light sour cream (2T per serving)
Place red onion, garlic and sprigs of cilantro in small food processor and puree. Remove and set aside. Place oil in small sauce pan and heat. Add garlic and onion mix and saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Place beans, water, sofrito and 1 T cilanto leaves in blender. Blend on medium speed until desired consistency – I like some big chunks left in mine, so I don’t go too crazy here. Stir into saucepan and heat through. Pour into bowls and top each bowl with 2 T sour cream and serve immediately.
