Parmesan Pan-Fried Tomatoes
Crispy pan-fried ripe tomatoes, breaded with seasoned panko crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Terrific served alongside grilled or roasted meats and poultry. Or, for a delicious breakfast treat, serve them with bacon and eggs.

Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons granulated garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup panko Japanese bread crumbs
12 slices tomatoes, sliced 1/2-inch thick (about 3 tomatoes)
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil

Cooking Directions:
1 – Combine flour, onion powder, granulated garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well.
2 – In separate bowl combine panko and Parmesan.
3 – In third bowl combine eggs and mustard.
4 – Take slices of tomato and dip in flour, dust off excess. Then dip in egg mixture, letting excess drip off. Finally dip in parmesan/panko mixture, pressing Parmesan mixture onto slices for good coverage. Repeat until all slices are breaded. These should be stored in a single layer dusted lightly with extra crumbs.
5 – Heat olive oil in non-stick frying pan, over medium-high heat. Place 3 slices in pan, and let cook about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side, until just golden brown. Don’t flip too soon or Parmesan mix will fall off. Serve hot.
Makes 4 servings.

To make this week’s Recipe you’ll be needing Dried Porcini Mushrooms, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic, Dry White Wine, Salt, Pepper, Spices, and Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese. The Dish is 176 calories and 19 net carbs per serving.

Chef Marco’s Orzotto With Porcini Mushrooms
You’re no doubt familiar with the many health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, from reducing rates of cardiovascular disease to lowering the risk of peripheral arterial disease and lessening the symptoms of sleep apnea. If you’d like to give this diet a try, why not start with this dish? It’s an authentic taste of Italy!

Ingredients
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Soaking time: approximately 30 minutes
Cooking time: approximately 50 minutes.

1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms, broken into small pieces
4 cups warm water
2 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup plus 1/4 cup dry white wine
Salt and pepper to taste
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 cup pearled barley
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced
Dash ground cardamom
Pinch ground cumin
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Directions
Yield: 8 servings
Serving size: about 1/2 cup

Let dried mushrooms stand in 4 cups of warm water for at least 30 minutes. With a slotted spoon or small strainer, lift the mushrooms out of the water, taking care not to pick up any dirt particles from the water. Place mushrooms on a paper towel and pat dry. Remove any visible remaining dirt. Strain the water, removing all dirt and debris, and put aside for later use. In a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat, then add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add mushrooms and continue sautéing for 1 minute with frequent stirring. Pour 1/4 cup wine over mushroom–garlic mixture and continue cooking for another 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste; set aside. In a separate large pan, heat remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat; add scallion and sauté for 1 minute with frequent stirring. Add in barley and mix well. Allow the barley to sizzle in the pan for about 2–3 minutes, then mix in thyme and spices. Very slowly add remaining 1/4 cup wine, using a long wooden spoon to prevent steam from burning your hand. Reduce heat, then carefully and slowly add 2 cups of mushroom water to barley while stirring. Allow barley to simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. After 30 minutes, add in mushroom–garlic mixture. Continue cooking uncovered for another 15 minutes, adding remaining mushroom liquid a little at a time as needed, until barley is tender. Remove pan from heat, sprinkle grated cheese over barley, and mix in well. Let barley mixture rest for 5 minutes before serving, adding more mushroom liquid if needed. Barley should be moist but not soupy. Serve hot.

1/4 cup trans-fat-free margarine or butter and canola oil blend* or canola oil
1 1/4 cups cold fat-free (skim) milk, low-fat buttermilk or soy milk

1/4 cup sliced green onions

Directions
Yield: 12 biscuits
Serving size: 1 biscuit

1 – Preheat oven to 400°F.

2 – Place baking mix in large mixing bowl. Cut in margarine, butter blend, or oil with pastry cutter or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in center of mixture and add milk. Gently and lightly stir together just until moistened. Do not overmix. Gently fold in cheese and onion with rubber spatula.

3 – Using 1/4-cup measure, scoop 12 pieces of dough onto baking sheet, placing 1 inch apart. (Dipping the cup or scoop in water between scoops helps the batter release easier onto the baking sheet.)
