Burritos are a great way to stretch a pound of meat to feed 6, avoiding extra fat and calories. Good for the waistline and the wallet, too!
Chicken Sausage Chili Burrito
This hearty, family-pleasing meal is a Tex-Mex lover’s delight. Use 1-3/4 cups (425 mL) of whatever PC salsa you have on hand; you could also add 1 can of drained corn in with the beans.
Mushroom Asparagus Strata with Multigrain Bread
Strata makes a great brunch dish, especially since you can do all the work the night before. This mushroom-goat cheese combo is perfect for company.
Italian Turkey Meatloaf
Shake up your meatloaf routine by making this simple turkey version. Serve with mashed potatoes and a salad. A little-known fact about turkey- compared to other meats, it is a pretty good source of calcium. Pound for pound, ground turkey is also lower in overall fat and saturated fat than ground chicken.
The special presentation makes this perfect for your next romantic dinner-for-two. Serve with a crisp salad on the side.
Turkey & Cranberry Stuffed Acorn Squash
All the flavours of the holiday season, without actually roasting a turkey! Acorn squash, also known as pepper squash, is a good source of fibre.
Bulgur and Quinoa Stuffed Peppers
If you’ve never tried bulgur before, this vegetarian stuffed pepper is a perfect place to start. Whole wheat berries that have been steamed, dried and crushed, bulgur is high in fibre, B vitamins and iron.
Leek-Stuffed Mushroom Caps
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.
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.
Pretzel-Crusted Pork Chops
Pretzels and mustard are a classic combination. Here we combine them with pork, for a quick-bake pork chop.
