Super Bowl Treats — Puff pastry shells with salasa, mushroom, tomato combo

I wrote yesterday about some wonderful mini-puff pastry cups that have only 15 mgs of salt and 0.5 grams of fat in two of them, so you can chug six or eight with ease and not worry about salt or fat content. But you need to fill them with something to make them a treat for guests at your Super Bowl Party.

Start by cutting up a portobello mushroom cap, one was enough to fill 15 mini-puff pastry cups.

I whipped up a filling made with cut up portobello mushrooms, tomatoes and a low-salt roasted garlic-flavored salsa I bought at Trader Joe’s.

First I cooked down the mushrooms and diced tomatoes in a frying pan sprayed with olive oil. When they reduced a bit and became soft, I added the salsa, enough to fill the 15 cups I had to work with. Guests at a recent dinner party seemed to enjoy them and I loved them. Continue reading “Super Bowl Treats — Puff pastry shells with salasa, mushroom, tomato combo”

Super Bowl low-salt, low-fat snacks: try filling these mini-puff pastry cups

The Big Game is coming this Sunday but if you’re on a low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar diet, most traditional game-day munchies are out for you. I’ve written before about looking for low-salt potato chips and salt-free taco chips, but even with those you still have to worry about fat content.

But recently I came across these mini puff pastry cups. Two shells have only half a gram of fat and 15 mgs of salt, so you can actually eat a bunch and not consume all that much fat and salt. Fill them with salt-free treats like cut-up tomatoes or pieces of shrimp. Or make something hot (watch for a recipe for my low-salt salsa, tomato, mushroom filling later this week).

These mini cups are low in fat and salt and sugar-free. Fill them with salt-free treats for Super Bowl munching.

The ones I bought at a Safeway are already cooked and sold frozen. Thaw them to eat. If you fill with anything wet, like salsa, eat them the same day or they get a bit soggy in the frig over night.
