I learned from Chef Chad Sarno at the Healthy Cooking event at Whole Foods how to omit oil from cooking, so I decided to give it a try. He taught us how to saute onions using no oil. The trick is to get the pan really hot first. It worked! I heated up the pan and then waited an extra minute just in case. Then I threw in some diced onions and watched them begin to carmelize! It was amazing---they did not burn. After a moment I shook the pan and let them cook a little more. Then I added some diced bell pepper and let that cook too. Still, no burning! I added some water (probably 1/4 cup or so) and then added in some ripped up Kale leaves. As I was doing this, I had some water boiling and I put in a cup of orzo pasta from Trader's Joe's. I added a good shake of Turmeric to the water to add in some healthy, good for you spice to the pasta, a little color and a little flavor. I covered the kale and veggie mixture and let it simmer for a bit until the water was mostly absorbed. Then I threw in the veggies with the Kale, added some good quality Parmesan cheese and ate my dinner made without oil! It was pretty delicious and you couldn't tell the difference whether I had used oil or not! Chad had told me that each tablespoon of oil has about 140 calories! I probably would have used close to 2 tablespoons so I basically eliminated 280 calories from this dish!
