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
Maple Toasted Walnut and Pear Salad
Toasting nuts always brings out the flavour, and adding maple syrup adds a hint of sweetness. Substitute pecans, if you prefer.
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.
Warm Spinach and Apple Salad
Prepared this way, the glazed apple slices taste almost like nectarines. A nifty salad trick.
