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
Seared Mahi Mahi Salad with Tangerine, Guava and Pink Peppercorn Dressing
Mahi mahi is a relatively low-in-fat fish, but is still a source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Mild and sweet, it does not taste “fishy”, making it a good pick for people who don’t like fish much but want to get some into their diets. In the summer, grill the fish; mahi mahi is meaty and firm making it a good grilling fish.
Chicken-Tofu Pad Thai
Pad Thai cooking sauce takes much of the work out of this traditional Thai noodle dish that looks as great as it tastes. You can use 200 g shelled raw shrimp in place of the chicken, if you prefer.
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.
Quick Western Bake
Be speedy and energy-efficient with this Western “bake” that’s made in the microwave instead of the oven.
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.
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.
Tomato, feta and shrimp are a classic Mediterranean combo. Our version, served over cooked brown rice (already cooked for you!), is easy enough to make on a weeknight after work.
The special presentation makes this perfect for your next romantic dinner-for-two. Serve with a crisp salad on the side.
Penne with Eggplant Sauce
A classic Italian eggplant sauce gets a healthy makeover! Eggplant can soak up a lot of oil; we’ve reduced the amount here, and added a healthier pasta choice than the standard white pasta. Feel free to increase the hot pepper flakes.
