    Low fat/low cal recipe with the MOST flavor! I hate that sometimes diets are so bland, and I would love to incorporate some healthy but tasty meals

    Rachel- check out my "Good Soup Made Better" recipe in Soups and Stews. It's a modification of this recipe http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Fast-Vegetable-Soup, and I added turkey sausage.

    Using turkey bacon and turkey sausage (looks like Hillshire Farms ring sausage) is a really good way to cut down on fat and salt. I really like the taste; I think it's better than the Healthy Choice stuff. It's also a ton cheaper than regular bacon or sausage- so your budget gets a little of a diet, too!

    Soy-Marinated London Broil
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup light brown sugar
    1 clove garlic, thickly sliced
    1 1/2 pounds top round London broil, about 1 1/2 inches thick
    1 1/2 cups white rice
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    8 scallions, ends trimmed
    1 tablespoon sesame seeds

    In a large skillet, stir together the soy sauce, sugar, and garlic until the sugar dissolves. Rinse the meat, pat it dry with a paper towel, and place it in the skillet, turning to coat. Let stand for 20 minutes, turning once more. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the package directions.

    Adjust oven rack to upper third of oven and turn on broiler. Transfer the meat to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Reserve the marinade in the skillet. Sprinkle the meat with the pepper and broil, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing thinly. Place the skillet containing the marinade over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Add the scallions, reduce heat to medium, and cook for 2 minutes. Divide the rice among 4 plates, arrange the meat on top, spoon the scallions and sauce over it, and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

    Tip: Boiling the leftover marinade before using it as a sauce is necessary to kill any bacteria from the raw meat.

    Yield: Makes 4 servings
