Healthy Lunch Tip: Making your own salad dressing helps control the type of fat added. Vegetable oil contains no saturated fat. Nuts, such as almonds, add a dose of healthy fats.

Chicken Schmaltz

Chicken Schmaltz

Mar 28, 2011

 Schmaltz means “fat” in Yiddish and German. In cooking, it refers to chicken fat in the Jewish tradition, and pork, goose or duck fat in the German. Trim the fat from chicken and save it in the freezer until there's enough to render and make schmaltz. You can substitute chicken fat skimmed from soup, or vegetable oil.

Braised Fennel with Peas

Braised Fennel with Peas

Mar 8, 2006

This saucy side dish is a lovely accompaniment to pan-fried chicken breasts or fish fillets or grilled chops or steaks. We drain the bacon fat and add vegetable oil to reduce saturated fat and cholesterol. However, for a smoky bacon flavour, you can always omit the oil and drain off all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the bacon fat.

Maple Carrot Loaf

Maple Carrot Loaf

Breakfast loaves are often made with vegetable oil for moistness, but unsweetened applesauce works just as well. While this loaf is excellent on its own, if you want something a bit more indulgent, try topping your slice with a vegan butter-flavoured spread or a soy-based nut butter.

Curling Stone Sandwich Cakes

Dec 26, 2013

Make your own gold medal–winning curling stones by sandwiching a cool, minty filling between two soft, cakey, chocolaty cookies and topping them with a gummy handle. If the coating chocolate is a little too thick to spread, stir in a few drops of vegetable oil to thin it.

Singapore Noodles

Singapore Noodles

Jan 19, 2015

This noodle dish gets its signature bright yellow colour from golden turmeric. We've substituted leaner pork tenderloin for the traditional barbecued pork (but if you can find the real thing, it's definitely worth using). This recipe yields a lot, so be sure to use a wok or your largest nonstick skillet.

Beef and Broccoli Fried Rice

Beef and Broccoli Fried Rice

Mar 1, 2015

Using ground beef instead of stir-fry beef keeps the cost down. Day-old rice works best, so if you can, cook it in advance. Cost: $3.25/serving
