When you’re trying to eat healthy, hors d’oeuvre- often high fat, salty affairs- are a challenge. You can enjoy our leek-stuffed mushrooms without blowing your healthy eating goals. Serve this elegant bite-sized nibble at your next party.
Leek-Stuffed Mushroom Caps
Pain Perdu with Maple Blueberry Sauce
So-named because it can be made with stale bread that would otherwise be lost (perdu), this dish is a brunch classic. It’s low fat as is, but you can dress it up by serving with whipped cream and fresh strawberries if you like.
Easy Weeknight Broccoli Pasta
Broccoli is a nutritional powerhouse- it offers fibre, calcium, vitamins and phytochemicals. One bunch of broccoli is made up of several heads; one head is one individual stem plus its crown. You only need one head for this recipe.
Moroccan Chicken and Rice
This recipe cleverly disguises last night’s leftover rotisserie chicken, turning it into an exotic meal by means of dried fruit, nuts and spices.
Cool Cucumber Sunomono with Crab
Sunomono is Japanese for vinegared salads, especially refreshing in the heat of summer. Serve as part of multi-course Japanese meal.
Garlic-Braised Kale and Corn
If the kale leaves are particularly large or seem tougher than usual, remove the centre rib of the kale leaves, as well as the stems.
Chicken with Vegetable Ragout
A ragout is a saucy French stew that can be made with meat or, as here, vegetables. It is much lighter than an Italian ragu, which is a thicker tomato-based meat sauce normally served over pasta.
We named this lightning because you can make it a flash! In the true Italian manner, the dish is sparsely sauced keeping the emphasis on the pasta. Buy a bag of prewashed baby spinach to keep the preparation time down.
Teriyaki Tofu Noodle Bowl
Double the teriyaki, with our teriyaki tofu and our teriyaki marinade! A beautiful and colourful presentation.
Creamy Tomato Sauce with Pasta
A quick and easy pasta for a weeknight. Evaporated milk adds wonderful creaminess to the sauce, as well as making this a good source of calcium with 260 mg per serving.
