Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C and contains iron. Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower have been shown to protect against some forms of cancer. Adding some potato to cauliflower helps it mash to a nicer consistency.
Mashed Cauliflower with Goat Cheese
Habanero Black Bean Mango Salad
Sure to be the summer’s favourite salad, this is great alongside burgers, ribs, chicken and steak.
Italian-Inspired Vegetable Medley
Jazz up everyday mixed vegetables with Italian flavours of Parmesan and tomato.
Lightened Up Creamy Coleslaw
We’ve made a low fat creamy coleslaw by substituting plain yogurt for the usual full fat mayonnaise. Prepackaged coleslaw mix is a great time-saver; look for it in the produce section.
Hearty Mushroom Barley Pilaf
Barley is high in fibre and low on the glycemic index, making it a great substitute for the usual white rice used in pilaf. Try this side dish with a roast instead of potatoes or rice.
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.
Scalloped One Potato, Two Potato
Scalloped potatoes are an all-time favourite. Sweet and white potatoes combine in this update of a dish that’s usually high in fat. We used stock instead of cream to reduce the fat.
Sweet Potato Salad
Instead of a heavy mayonnaise dressing, we’ve lightened up potato salad by using our Blue Menu California Dressing. We’ve also used nutritious sweet potatoes, with high amounts of Vitamins A and C and antioxidant beta carotene.
Minted Couscous Salad
Mint makes this salad particularly fresh-tasting.
