apple saute with ice cream

apple saute with ice creamBuilt with blood pressure-reducing potassium, hefty with fiber, busting out with isoflavones, all underlined by monounsaturated oil, this RA reducer weighs in at 2.9 days younger.
Preparation Time:  12 minutes
Cooking Time:  12 minutes
Servings  4
Serving Size:


3 large or 4 small cooking apples such as Ambrosia or Jonagold (1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup apple butter
1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice or cider
1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder
1/4 cup chopped Brazil nuts or walnuts, toasted
1/2 cup nonfat or low fat vanilla frozen yogurt, such as Haagen Dazs


Cut apples into quarters; discard stems, core and seeds. Cut apple quarters into thin slices. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add apples; cook until apples begin to brown, about 4 minutes, tossing occasionally. Stir in apple butter, apple juice and 5-spice powder; continue to cook 5 to 8 minutes or until apples are tender and sauce thickens, tossing frequently. Transfer to serving plates; top with nuts. Serve with frozen yogurt.


5 spice powder is a combination of Chinese spices that usually includes cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechwan peppercorns. Look for the spice mix in the Asian section of your supermarket or by the other spices. As the apples brown and caramelize in the pan, their own natural sugars add to the rich sauce.


1 teaspoon cinnamon may be substituted for the 5 spice powder, with a softer, sweeter resulting flavor.
