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.
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.
Pretzel-Crusted Pork Chops
Pretzels and mustard are a classic combination. Here we combine them with pork, for a quick-bake pork chop.
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.
Slow Roasted Wild Salmon
Omega-3 fats are necessary for the normal growth and development of the brain, nerve and eye tissue, and are beneficial to heart health. Salmon is a great source of Omega-3.
Salami Tomato Frittata
A substantial, meaty supper dish. Serve a salad alongside.
