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
Peanut Butter and Banana Apple Stack ‘n Dip
This is a healthy breakfast that is fun to make for kids of all ages! Substitute smooth almond butter if you prefer.
Open-Faced Chicken, Arugula and Walnut Sandwiches
Walnuts and apple give this open-faced chicken sandwich a bit of a Waldorf salad feel. This recipe doubles easily if you’re cooking for a larger group.
Grilled Naan Sandwich with Charred Veggies and Baba Ghanouj
Smoky baba ghanouj complements the smoky flavours of charred vegetables in this delicious naan wrap. If you have a gas barbecue you can enjoy this year-round.
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.
Seared Mahi Mahi Salad with Tangerine, Guava and Pink Peppercorn Dressing
Mahi mahi is a relatively low-in-fat fish, but is still a source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Mild and sweet, it does not taste “fishy”, making it a good pick for people who don’t like fish much but want to get some into their diets. In the summer, grill the fish; mahi mahi is meaty and firm making it a good grilling fish.
Power Fruit Breakfast Crumble
No need to thaw the fruit for this delectable breakfast crumble. Knock it together as soon as you get up and shower and dress while it bakes for a delicious hot breakfast even the kids will appreciate.
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.
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.
