Plenty of Reasons (And Recipes) To Party (NAPSA) - Special occasions can make it difficult for even a faithful dieter to stick to a weight-loss regimen. Fortunately, for the millions of Americans who want to avoid those holiday and party pitfalls, a new cookbook offers delicious and nutritious ways to take part in the festivities without compromising your weight-loss plan.
"Depriving yourself of delicious foods is a thing of the past," says cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., developer of The South Beach Diet. "This cookbook has a variety of healthy dishes prepared with good fats, good carbohydrates, lean sources of protein, and plenty of fiber to keep you satisfied and allow you to celebrate any party or holiday without guilt."
This mouthwatering recipe can be a great addition to any holiday occasion or enjoyed at any time:
(Prep Time: 20 minutes - Cook Time: 25 minutes)
Heat oven to 450 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Cut potatoes into 30 (3/4-inch-thick) rounds. With a melon baller, carefully scoop a pocket into each potato piece, being careful not to scoop through bottoms; discard scooped-out portion.
Combine potato pieces, 1 Tbsp. oil and garlic in a large bowl and toss to coat. Spread potatoes on baking sheet, scooped-out side up, and roast until just tender and edges start to brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, mash feta, chives and remaining oil together in a small bowl. Season with pepper to taste.
Remove potatoes from oven and fill each pocket with a heaping 1/2 teaspoon cheese mixture. Return to oven and bake until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve warm.
