Many thanks,

Sunny

I'd start with a recipe that is as fat-free as possible and go from there. You might try Graham Kerr. Since his wife had a stroke back in the eighties, his recipes have been obsessively low-fat but still mostly made of food. The only subs I know of are things like using mashed banana, applesauce, or prune purée in baking, but even then, it's only meant to be a sub for a portion of the fat.

Is this friend coming to dinner? Are you sending him a care package? Or is he just looking to you for advice?

It's impossible, of course, to never ingest ANY fat. The various on-line guidelines for folks on a low-fat diet due to pancreatitis say to limit oils to 1 tablespoon per day (so, soups that just use a bit of olive oil for sautéing aromatics should be okay) and 5 oz. of lean meat. Also, no over-eating.

Sunny,

A lot of Japanese food is quite low-fat, and can be made more so. For example, a nice bowl of ramen or udon can have no fat in it at all, depending on how you make your dashi.

If the amount of fat in white-fleshed fish is tolerable, also consider chinese-style steamed fish, with rice. Long-cooked bean soups can be quite good without any oil, just use the slow cooker. Egg whites also have almost no fat, so that offers a number of desserts as well as main dishes.

Check a Pritkin diet cookbook. Then season the hell out of things; they don't use enough spices.

Thank you!

Unfortunately he loves to cook and is an extremely good cook. This has really changed his life. He is VERY slim and so never had to pay any attention to fat or oil.

He told me that someone rec. that he use non fat condensed milk along with regular non fat milk for mashed potatoes, he says they are quite good...

I was just hoping for some tricks of the trade"

Thanks again,

Sunny

Sunny,

Based partly on this thread, I just did the soba noodle thing tonight. I did soba noodles in homemade dashi with vegetables. Less than a gram of fat per bowl if you omit the tofu.
