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
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.
Spicy and Saucy Tofu and Chicken Stir Fry
Stir fries are a busy cook’s dream; get all your ingredients lined up and they come together in a flash. Serve over cooked rice or Chinese noodles, if desired.
Spring Turkey Pasta
Spring flavours of peas and fresh herbs infuse this light pasta toss. Whole wheat pasta supplies lots of fibre, but you could also use our omega penne pasta- it’s almost as high in fibre but with the added benefits of omega-3 fat.
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.
Roasted Tomato Soup with Cheesy Flatbread
Roasting tomatoes is a perfect use for over-ripe tomatoes that are too mushy to use any other way. You can use roasted tomatoes in a sandwich, in a pasta dish, or as here, in a home-made tomato soup. You can use smoked paprika in this soup, if you’d like. Tomatoes are a wonderful source of the anti-oxidant lycopene.
Mango & Black Bean Chicken Salad
Mango adds a touch of sweetness to this main course chicken-bean salad. If your family hates coriander (it is a love-it or hate-it taste!), substitute parsley.
We gave normally evil pasta carbonara a healthy remake, by substituting turkey bacon, omitting the cream and using omega eggs and pasta. Still indulgent, but an indulgence you can afford on a regular basis!
Easy Egg Fried Rice
If your family loves fried rice at your local Chinese restaurant, try this easy at-home version. With egg and bacon, this is a main course, but if you’d like you can serve smaller portions as a side dish.
