Mango Lassi Dessert

Mango Lassi Dessert

This creamy and refreshing scented dessert is based on lassi, a popular chilled yogurt drink in India. Serve very cold as the perfect end to a spicy meal.
Massoor Dhal
  • Time: 35 minutes

Massoor Dhal

Here is a recipe for a lentil-based dhal that is perfect for the soft or pureed stage of eating after bariatric surgery. This is reasonably well spiced and hits the spot after many bland foods. If you don’t like your food too spicy then HALVE the spices in the recipe below.
Minted Pea Soup
  • Time: 20 to 25 minutes

Minted Pea Soup

This has to be one of my most favorite soups, developed in the summer but I eat all year round. If you have concerns about digesting peas skins then pass the soup through a sieve before serving.
Miso Broth with Tofu and Pak Choi
  • Time: 10 to 15 minutes

Miso Broth with Tofu and Pak Choi

This quick soup with noodles and tofu is nourishing and most fragrant. It’s substantial enough for a main meal for a wls patient. If you want to make a meat type alternative, try substituting cooked chicken chunks for the tofu…add at the first stage of cooking, along with the mushrooms.
Moroccan Beetroot and Herb Salad with Yogurt Dressing

Moroccan Beetroot and Herb Salad with Yogurt Dressing

This salad would make a wonderful starter to a Moroccan style meal or a good accompaniment to the main dish for one. Use cooked beetroot/beets that are dipped in vinegar, not pickled ones, for the best authentic taste.

Mother's Day mango and passion fruit mousse

This is a lightweight mango mousse that is more than bariatric friendly. The hint of lime brings out the tropical mango flavour and the 0% fat Greek yogurt adds creaminess without boosting the calorie count. For a smooth puree, make sure the mangoes are ripe, they should be soft with a sweet scent. My mother thought these mousses were wickedly indulgent but at just 60 calories a portion, they are very deceiving!
