Flaxseed meal recipe

I love using flaxseed meal. Since I'm 'doing' Atkins, and there is so much good about flax, it works out great. Here's how I use it...
Protein Shake
in a blender... blend 2 eggs
add 1/4 cup tofu
2 Tbsp flaxseed meal
blend & blend & blend
next, add sugar free syrup 2 glugs, or to taste
you can use Splenda and vanilla flavoring if desired
add 5-6 ice cubes...
blend and enjoy.

Hello,
Here is another flxseed recipe, haven't tried it yet though.

Twice Baked Potatoes

2 medium baking potatoes
1/4 vegetable bouillon cube
1/4 cup soy milk or 2% milk
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 tablespoons butter
2 or more tablespoons ground flaxseed
salt and pepper to taste
Bake potatoes at 375 for 1 hour or until done.
Remove potatotes from oven, let cool slightly.
While potatoes are cooling, saute garlic in butter for about 2 minutes, add vegetable bouillion plus a small amount of water to mix with. Take off heat.
Scoop insides out of potato into bowl, add garlic mixture, flaxseed meal, soy milk, salt and pepper. Mix together, put back into potato shells, bake with sauteed veggies such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts or artichoke hearts. Serves 2.

Petunia

Hi again,

Here is a Flax Shake
2 cups cold soy milk
1 (3 1/2 oz.) package instant vanilla pudding
1 (8 oz.) carton plain lowfat yogurt or plain soy yogurt
1 cup crushed ice
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries (or blueberries, peach slices, etc.)
2 teaspoons ground flaxseed

Combine all dry ingredients in blender in order as given above. Blend on high speed for one minute. Add crushed ice a little at a time. Blend. Yields: 8 1/2 cup servings.

Petunia


Anyone heard of soy yogurt? I never heard of it and don't know where you would purchase it.

I bought some flax seed since I heard the benefits were outstanding. These recipes look great.

But I have a question, how do you grind the flax seed?

Hello
A small coffee grinder came with my flaxseed. I suppose you can buy them in specialty stores.

Few More quick and Easy Flax Ideas

Add to granola as a topping for ice cream
Add to yogurt with wheat germ and fruit
Add to your favorite oatmeal or cereal
Add to your juice, soy milk or shake
Sprinkle on pizza
Sprinkle on a cut up apple or melon
Sprinkle in mixes for cookies, bread, etc.
Sprinkle in soup

You can also use flaxseed anywhere you use nuts.

Caronamy~~~~Thanks for posting the site. Have been using flax for some time and notice the difference. Even my Dh uses it in his cereal. Here is another good site with recipes. http://www.freedomyou.com/recipes/flax%20seed.htm
