Wild Rice Mushroom Soup

Wild Rice Mushroom Soup

Oct 18, 2010

This velvety, nutty-textured soup tastes almost too rich to be meatless, but it is! For a slightly thinner, dairy-free version, replace butter with additional olive oil and replace cream with almond, rice or soy milk.

Lightened-Up Hummus

Lightened-Up Hummus

May 16, 2006

Authentic hummus recipes include lots of tahini and olive oil and, although those are healthy ingredients, they are still high in fat and dense in calories. Here, tahini (a sesame seed paste) is replaced with a much smaller amount of sesame oil and a drizzle of olive oil. A typical 2 tbsp (25 mL) serving of hummus has about 89 calories and 5.8 grams of fat, but this one, lightened up with calcium-rich yogurt, has only 52 calories and 2 grams of fat. Pack this dip with vegetable sticks and whole grain pita wedges for a quick and wholesome lunch.

To accompany the main is a refreshing salad dish which includes rice, peaches, capsium, celery, onion, saltanos, cashew nuts and dressing. The dressing is olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, fruit chutney and curry.

For the best results, cook up your macaroni or pasta ahead of time. Drain and rinse and let cool. Drizzle enough olive oil to coat all the pasta. Cover and refrigerate for at least a couple hours or even better over night. This will help to prevent the pasta from absorbing the liquid. This dressing I also use in my potato salad.

Feta Yogurt Dip

Feta Yogurt Dip

Aug 18, 2014

This creamy herbed dip is perfect for a party. It can be halved or doubled, it's a cinch to whip up, and it tastes even better when made ahead and flavours have time to develop. For added drama, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil just before serving.
