Ok, here it comes:

Tomatorizo: Tomato with rice 

3 cups of rice (i guess low protein)

4 tomatoes (chopped)

1 medium dry onion (chopped)

1 green pepper

Olive-oil (3-4 spoons)

salt, pepper

Put the rice, salt, pepper and olive-oil in a pan. Above them pour the chopped tomatoes, onion and green pepper after you have stir- fried them ( in little olive-oil) for a few minutes.  Mix them all together and add 2-3 glasses of boiled water. Put them in the oven at 200o C. Of course you get food for the whole family….


For 1 person

1/2 cup of boiled spinach

1 small cup (for espresso) of rice

2 spoons of tomato juice

1 spoon of olive oil

dried onion, finokio

some pepper-mint (3-4 leaves)

salt, pepper 

In the olive oil, stir- fry the spinach, onion, finokio for 3-4 minutes. Add the tomato juice , salt, pepper and put the rice in niches. Add 1 glass of water and boil in low fire until the rice is ready. Add some lemon juice before serving.

 i don't know the phe for the recipes, they are the every-day foods we're having in Greece with normal rice, but I don't see why they shouldn;t work with lp. 

if you want them to be with really low calories , avoid the frying, put them all together and boil them. Then it is 250-300 calories per plate, but you'll miss the taste.

Instead of spinach, you can use leek. Don't boil it before, cut it in peices and try to make it soft in the pan over the fire. You should add celery instead of pepper-mint, and skip finokio. in your plate add some lemon.

Sorry for my English Sarah!

How about green peppers stuffed with rice, onion and peppermint?
