Searing is one of the simplest, fastest ways to prepare salmon fillets. It ensures that the outside gets crispy while the inside stays moist and tender. The key to achieving that golden crust: Bring your nonstick skillet up to a high temperature before adding the fish to the pan. For a more subtly spiced chimichurri, reduce the hot pepper flakes to just a pinch.
This recipe turns powerhouse lentils into a healthy spin on burgers. Golden, crispy baked fries require very little oil but still don't stick to the parchment paper–lined pan—they are the tastiest good-for-you fries you'll ever enjoy. Thick Greek yogurt and fresh garlic on top of the patty give it a creamy kick, and a simple fresh salsa is the only condiment you'll need.
Rainbow trout is a perfect quick-cooking fish. When it's seared, the tender flesh—enhanced here by smoky, spicy chipotle chili powder—practically falls off the skin. Filled with colourful veggies, smoky lentils and a citrusy vinaigrette, this salad is a comforting meal served warm, and any leftovers make a light, refreshing lunch straight out of the fridge.
This healthy take on a favourite fat- and sodium-laden takeout dish gets its zing from a sauce that's richly flavoured but nutritionally sensible. Using a large skillet for the pork helps to brown quickly without steaming; it also speeds up sauce reduction and gets dinner on the table in record time.
Pork and apples are a classic pairing, but throw in a little mustard and serve over potatoes and cabbage, and you have a tasty dinner that's anything but boring. Green cabbage should not be overlooked; it's an excellent source of vitamins C and K, a good source of folate and a source of vitamin B6. Make the dish greener by tossing in a handful of coarsely chopped parsley right before serving.
Barley packs a fibre punch in this hearty, chunky soup. Kale may be the nutritional darling of the moment, but don't underestimate the humble zucchini, which contains potassium, or the workhorse onion, which offers antioxidants.
This gently spicy dish packs a healthy dose of vitamin A, folate and antioxidants, thanks to all of the colourful vegetables. A little bit of tofu makes a nice protein source, and cooking it in the sauce from the beginning gives it time to absorb the delicious curry flavours.
