Deep-fried chickpea croquettes called falafel are a Middle Eastern specialty and are also a popular street food in Canada’s urban areas. Here we form falafel mixture into patties instead of croquettes and reduce the fat by frying in a nonstick pan.
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.
Crispy Tofu with Peanut Sauce
Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, this tofu dish offers a balance of textures and flavours. Serve with rice to soak up the Memories sauce, and steamed broccoli.
Pasta with Zucchini Rounds
A wonderfully fresh pasta toss that can be made year-round. Coarsely grating the Parmigiano creates lovely melting bits in the finished dish.
Warm Lentil Salad
Lentils are a good source of iron, and a good choice for the vegetarians in your family. Since you can make it and serve at room temperature, this salad is perfect for a busy holiday meal.
