Edamame, grains and cheese ensure this unusual and refreshing salad has a main course level of protein.
Hearty Grain & Quinoa Salad
Mozzarella Chicken Melt with Pasta Marinara
Breaded chicken can be healthy, when you bake it instead of pan-frying, and serve it with a whole grain pasta-spinach toss. We sneakily added some omega oil to the pasta sauce, so even the fish haters can reap the health benefits.
Fragrant White Bean Soup
This first course soup packs a fibre punch due to the navy beans. Don’t forget to drain the beans after cooking them or the soup will be watery. Serve with hearty wholegrain bread and some crudités to turn it into a main course. Never salt the water when cooking dried beans, or the beans will not fully soften.
Mexican Party Potato Salad
Canned cream-style corn gives this potato salad a delectable creaminess, without the usual mayo. Perfect for potlucks.
Sweet Potato Hash
Make this easy hash and top with over-easy eggs for a nutritious weeknight meal. Full of vitamin C and beta-carotene, sweet potato and red pepper are two of the healthiest vegetables you can eat.
Healthy Grains Wrap
Our grain side dish makes a substantial wrap, hearty enough to serve as a dinner entrée. Pack leftover sandwiches for lunch the next day.
Chicken and Avocado Dinner Salad
Maximize your summer evenings with this no-cook family-sized dinner salad, ready in 20 minutes.
Chicken Sausage Chili Burrito
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!
Rotini and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
Twelve cloves of garlic may seem like a lot, but don’t worry! Blanching the garlic in boiling water mellows it out.
Grilled Marinated Portobello Sandwiches with Avocado
Portobello caps have a wonderfully meaty texture when grilled, making this a wonderful main course alternative if you’re trying to eat meatless occasionally. If you have extra time, let the caps marinate in the vinegar a while before grilling; if you’re pressed for time, you can grill them right away.
