18. Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

Best 19 Healthy Flat Belly Weight Loss Meals Recipes

Ingredients:

For the Sauce

  • 2pounds fresh, ripe tomatoes, prepared as described below, or 2 cups canned imported Italian tomatoes, cut up, with their juice
  • 5tablespoons butter
  • 1medium onion, peeled and cut in half
  • Salt to taste

Making Fresh Tomatoes Ready for Sauce

  • Fresh, ripe plum tomatoes (or other varieties, if they are equally ripe and truly fruity, not watery)

Directions:

For the Sauce

  1. Put either the prepared fresh tomatoes or the canned in a saucepan, add the butter, onion, and salt, and cook uncovered at a very slow, but steady simmer for about 45 minutes, or until it is thickened to your liking and the fat floats free from the tomato.
  2. Stir from time to time, mashing up any large pieces of tomato with the back of a wooden spoon.
  3. Taste and correct for salt. Before tossing with pasta, you may remove the onion (as Hazan recommended) and save for another use, but many opt to leave it in. Serve with freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese for the table.

Making Fresh Tomatoes Ready for Sauce

  1. The blanching method: Plunge the tomatoes in boiling water for a minute or less. Drain them and, as soon as they are cool enough to handle, skin them, and cut them into coarse pieces.
  2. The freezing method (from David Tanis, via The Kitchn): Freeze tomatoes on a baking sheet until hard. Thaw again, either on the counter or under running water. Skin them and cut them into coarse pieces.
  3. The food mill method: Wash the tomatoes in cold water, cut them lengthwise in half, and put them in a covered saucepan. Turn on the heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes. Set a food mill fitted with the disk with the largest holes over a bowl. Transfer the tomatoes with any of their juices to the mill and puree.

19. Baked Eggs in Portobello Mushroom Caps

Best 19 Healthy Flat Belly Weight Loss Meals Recipes

Ingredients:

  • farm fresh eggs
  • portobello mushroom caps
  • slices of prosciutto
  • black pepper
  • fresh parsley or thyme
  • a little olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Clean the portobello mushroom caps with a damp cloth, remove the stem and scrape out the gills so you have a well deep enough for the egg.
  2. Rub a little bit of olive oil on the outside of the mushroom to help it cook and keep it from sticking to the pan. Arrange the caps on a baking sheet.
  3. Place one slice of prosciutto inside the mushroom cap.
  4. Crack each egg into a small bowl and then carefully slide it onto a prosciutto-filled mushroom cap.
  5. Sprinkle with black pepper and fresh herbs of choice – I used parsley but thyme would be great as well. (The prosciutto is salty so I don’t recommend adding more.)
  6. CAREFULLY place the baking pan into the pre-heated 375 degree F oven and bake for 20-30 minutes. The amount of time required depends on how thick your mushrooms are and how done you like your eggs.
