Curry Pita Pizza

Curry Pita Pizza

This here pizza was full of flavor and managed to abide by the ETL rules.
The following was spread onto a whole grain pita, then topped with dried figs and red bell peppers.  Then I baked it at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutres.

Cashew Curry Sauce (sorry for the lack of specific measures)
soaked raw cashews
a small amount of silken tofu
curry powder, to taste
a little bit of unsweetened soy milk to thin it out
Directions: Blend until smooth

Carmelized Onion Marmalade
2 yellow onions, cut into thin rings
1/2 cup low sodium vegetable broth
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Directions:   In a hot skillet, add onions and vegetable broth.  Cover and cook until very soft.  About 20 minutes.  Add balsamic vinegar, toss to coat, reduce heat to low, uncover and cook until almost all of the liquid is absorbed, and  mass of "slimy" onions is left.

I also really like to eat my salads right on top of my pizza, so after the pizza was cooked, I topped it with a romaine salad topped with pine nuts and the Green Goddess Dressing from Isa's Appetite for Reduction.  I made the dressing sans the salt, and it is still really, really yummy.

Yum Joni! Dried figs, gotta love it!
So how's it going with this ETL? Have you lost any weight? Are you working out as well? I've been thinking about the ETL for quite some time for our family. Not that we eat bad but my hubby is trying to lose weight and I'd like to get our palates adjusted to less salt, which we don't use alot anyways but I still know it could be better.

YES! Losing weight (12 pounds in 2 weeks!) and working out (about 3 times a week, low impact, swimming, walking, hiking) Less salt is definitely taking some getting used to, but we are starting to get the hang of it :) One really cool thing is that if you live close to a Whole Foods, the have a program called Health Starts Here, which follows the ETL guidelines, so the Deli has ready made options!

I can't believe I never knew about the Health Starts Here program at WF. I can't wait to check it out next time I'm in there.
I'm checking your blog like crazy lately, because I need some ideas for ETL food!

Btw there is an awesome hot sauce called Brother Bru Bru and it's sodium free! It's also really hot and really good.
You can get it at the Venice Whole Foods.
