When you’re trying to eat healthy, hors d’oeuvre- often high fat, salty affairs- are a challenge. You can enjoy our leek-stuffed mushrooms without blowing your healthy eating goals. Serve this elegant bite-sized nibble at your next party.
Leek-Stuffed Mushroom Caps
Cooking the macaroni separately keeps the wheat flavour from overwhelming the finished soup.
Low Fat Tzatziki
Versatile tzatziki can be used as a dip, a spread for flatbread or sandwiches such as gyro, or a sauce on fried foods especially fish.
Wrap it Up! Chicken Lettuce Wrap
Here’s a high-protein snack the kids can help you make. Perfect for after school munchies.
Coriander Lime Salsa
This zesty salsa has one-quarter the sodium of most bottled salsas.
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.
Chicken with Vegetable Ragout
A ragout is a saucy French stew that can be made with meat or, as here, vegetables. It is much lighter than an Italian ragu, which is a thicker tomato-based meat sauce normally served over pasta.
Sweet Green Pea Soup
Perfect if you or someone in your family has been placed on a salt-restricted diet. Using the liquid in the can- no salt added!- ensures you capture all of the sweet pea flavour.
Butternut Squash Couscous
Whole wheat couscous has a lovely nutty flavour, accentuated in this fast, healthy side dish by slivered almonds. Dark orange vegetables such as butternut squash are full of beta-carotene.
Tofu Vegetable Lasagna
Lasagna makes a hearty main course. The fussy part is always the layering- the preparation for this meatless version is easy, and once it’s in the oven, you can put your feet up!
