  • Cook 1 h

  • Ready In  5 h 30 m

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms to the hot oil, sprinkle with salt, and cook and stir until liquid from mushrooms has evaporated. Stir butter into mushrooms, reduce heat to medium, and cook and stir mushrooms until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir onion into mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until onion is translucent, 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir garlic into mushroom mixture until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl.
  3. Mix oats into mushroom mixture until thoroughly combined. Gently stir 1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese into mixture. Add bread crumbs, 1/4 cup parsley, and 1 egg; season with salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and oregano. Mix together with a fork until crumbly. Stir in remaining 1 egg. Mixture should hold together when pressed.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours. For best flavor and texture, refrigerate overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  6. Form mixture into small meatballs using a 2-tablespoon scoop. Roll meatballs lightly between your hands until smooth, if desired; arrange meatballs on prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until meatballs are lightly golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
  8. Bring pasta sauce to a boil in a large saucepan; reduce heat to low. Gently stir meatballs into sauce until coated. Simmer meatballs in sauce until cooked through, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with 1 tablespoon Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and 1 tablespoon parsley.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free Italian dressing
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 pound round steak, cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup fat free beef broth
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 pound broccoli, separated into florets

Directions

  • In a shallow glass dish or bowl, stir together the soy sauce, Italian dressing, cornstarch, garlic and ginger. Place steak strips in the mixture to marinate for 15 minutes.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove beef from marinade with a slotted spoon, and place in the hot skillet. Discard marinade. Cook beef, stirring constantly for 2 to 3 minutes, or until mostly browned. Stir in the beef broth, mushrooms and green onions, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove lid, add broccoli, and cook until broccoli is bright green and tender but still crisp.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Fresh White Shrimp, Peeled and Deveined
  • 2 Cups (about 1 pound) Fresh Grouper, Cubed
  • 2 Tbsp diced Fresh Jalapeño
  • ⅓ Cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • ⅓ Cup Green Bell Pepper, diced
  • ⅓ Cup Yellow Bell Pepper, diced
  • ⅓ Cup Purple Onion, diced
  • ½ Cup Cucumber, diced
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh-squeezed Lime Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh-squeezed Lemon Juice
  • ⅔ Cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ tsp Sea Salt

For Marinade:

  • ½ tsp Sea Salt

1 Cup Fresh-squeezed Lime Juice (about 5 limes)

 

Instructions

  • Rinse your shrimp out under cold water in a strainer.
  • Peel and devein the shrimp. Rinse it again under cold water, set aside.
  • Rinse your Grouper under cool water. Using a large cleaver, cut the fish into 1-inch cubes.
  • In a bowl, whisk 1 Cup of Fresh-squeezed Lime Juice and ½ tsp Sea Salt until well blended.
  • In a glass dish (I used a Pyrex 4.8 Cup Bake, Store, and Serve container with a glass lid), put the shrimp in the bottom and the Grouper on top. Pour lime juice into the container. It should fully cover both the fish and the shrimp. Cover with lid and place in the refrigerator for an hour.
  • While your seafood is in the refrigerator, prepare your remaining ingredients. Mix the peppers, onion, cilantro, lime juice, lemon juice, cucumber, and sea salt together in a large glass or tupperware storage container.
  • After the hour has passed, removed the Grouper only from the marinade. Gently squeeze out each piece over the sink before placing it in the container with the rest of the ingredients. Cover with lid and give it a shake to mix well. Place in the fridge.
  • Place the shrimp and marinade back in the refrigerator for another hour. Shrimp takes longer to “cook” in the lime juice.
  • After that second hour has passed, removed shrimp from the marinade and mix with the Grouper and other ingredients. Mix well! You can dispose of the marinade at this point.

Put your ceviche back in the fridge and for best results, leave it
