Miso-Glazed Cod with Brown Rice Edamame Pilaf
Miso or fermented soybean paste is often used in Japanese cuisine. You can find it in the refrigerated natural foods section of the grocery store.
Barbecued Chicken Thighs with Sweet Potato Fries
Chicken thighs grill up tender every time, unlike chicken breasts which become dry if overcooked. Thighs are also cheaper than breasts, another bonus.
Fired Up Sausage and Peppers
Italian-inspired, this hearty barbecue dish is sure to please the meat lovers in your family. Hungry teenagers might appreciate a loaf of crusty bread, served with a ramekin of olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping.
Kale and White Bean Smash
Kale is a great non-dairy source of calcium, and provides iron and folate as well. Choose a bunch with perky green leaves, and remove tough stems before chopping.
Cauliflower Ham and Parmesan Frittata
Using a nonstick frying pan lets you get away with using less fat to cook the frittata. All eggs are a complete source of protein, but omega eggs also benefit heart health and brain development.
Penne Rigate with Chicken, Watercress and Walnuts
Buying chicken pieces on the bone and with skin is more economical than buying them skinned or boned. You can easily remove the skin or bones yourself, as required in your recipe. Boning chicken breasts is easiest to do with a thin, flexible boning knife.
Cavatappi with Pepperoni
Some of the classic pizza flavours appear in this yummy pasta dish. If some of your family like spice and some don’t, simply put the hot pepper flakes on the table so everyone can add to their own serving, perhaps accompanied by PC 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese, just like they have on the tables of Italian pizza places.
