Baked Tomatoes with Grapes

I was recently leafing through Michele Scicolone’s cookbook ‘The Antipasto Table’, coming across a recipe that I tried over seven years ago… and yes, it sounds like a bizarre combo.

Citrus Smoothie

Smoothies can be a no-mess way to get in vital nutrients that you may be lacking in your everyday diet, like vitamin C and calcium. They are superfast to whip up and the creamy texture can help fight cravings for sweets and frozen treats.

Snow Peas with Orange Zest and Garlic

Anyone who has minimal cooking experience will like this recipe – even my husband, the reluctant cook. Just be sure not to overcook the snow peas.

Tacos

Make your taco meat ground turkey and add grated carrot and tomato for extra flavor and nutrition. Buy grated part-skim mozzarella in bulk – it is the most versatile cheese and you can use in almost any recipe and is several grams lower in fat than cheddar. Great way to use up left over cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and extra salsa that lingers at the bottom of the jar.

Creamy Spinach Dip

Artichokes make this creamy spinach dip chunky and satisfying without adding loads of extra fat that the traditional versions has. Artichokes are also high in fiber and make for an excellent salad dressing.

Refried Beans with Bacon

Creamy refried beans are a perfect side dish for any Mexican main course. Beans and smoky bacon are a delectable combo but I use turkey bacon to keep them light and low-fat.

Chocolate Avocado Milkshake

Avocado in a milkshake might sound unusual, but in Vietnam it’s a traditional treat that you can order in local restaurants. Enjoy a creamy, rich shake while getting a serving of vegetables to boot!

Balsamic Asparagus

Asparagus is the quintessential spring vegetable but is easy to find year-round. Balsamic mixed with chicken broth and cornstarch adds a sweet-and-sour flavor to this dish. Top with grilled, sliced chicken to make it a meal.
