A vegetarian dish – Stuffed zucchini with tomatoes, shallots, garlic, feta cheese and a little olive oil. A delightful change of pace for zucchini lovers!
Besides the known health benefits (and bad breath!) garlic adds punch to savory dishes. Try roasting it for even more flavor. Makes a yummy spread for bread.
A delicious spicy dish with a Szechuan inspired sauce! It’s quite easy to make and packs a powerful punch in the flavor arena.
This is definitely one of my faster recipes that you can impress with! This dish is really easy to make and it has a ton of flavor, which is what you need with pasta. By using whole wheat pasta you can increase the healthiness of the meal. The spinach and tomatoes also add iron to the dish. It’s a nice break from the traditional sauce and pasta. Mangia, mangia! :)
Garlic bread is super easy to make and is a delicious addition to the side of any Italian dish. I also sometimes make it to accompany a salad for lunch (since greens can sometimes be lacking pizazz). While it’s super easy to go and buy at the store or from the freezer, there is nothing like using a freshly baked bread and thin-sliced fresh peeled garlic.
I was feeling inspired by my triscuit box that I bought at the grocery store. They always have pictures of cool ways you can use your triscuit, so I decided that I would give it a whirl. This recipe is a slight modification of @GeekBoston’s Goat cheese and onion tart. I made it this weekend for a football party and it was a big hit! It’s fast, easy and delicious.
I’m not talking about making your dish hot, I’m talking about using spices in your dishes for flavor AND health benefits. The best part is that spices add tons of flavor without adding calories to your dishes. So why not make it spicy…it’s good for your body!
